The Swine Of Steel......Pig Iron By NiteOwl

DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2007.08.05
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a Marvel Icons Pig Iron figure by NiteOwl.

Here is how NiteOwl describes the making of the figure:

Well it's been a while since I had time to complete or post any customs. With my Capt. Carrot custom completed a while ago, I thought I would get around to making some more of his team mates from the Zoo Crew. The following is from Wikipedia and describes Pig Irons' origin story.......

Peter Porkchops of "Piggsburgh" (a parody of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania); a pig. Struck by a meteor fragment, the diminutive Peter fell (along with the meteorite) into a vat of molten metal in the steel mill where he worked. The consequent chemical reaction transformed his now-enormous body into living steel, with strength and invulnerability to match.

So the base is a Mongul figure from DSCH. The head is a complete sculpt. I added panel pins to either side of his face.

I sculpted the straps, elbow and knee screws. The belt symbol is decoupage. His cute little tail is just a piece of wire twisted into shape, I cut sections out of his boots to give him the trotter effect.......
