Doctor Scarab - Evil Bionic Scientist

Perhaps one of the more obscure characters I've made to date, Dr. Scarab was the main antagonist from The Bionic Six, another toy line/cartoon hybrid of the 1980's.

With the exception of the large scarab jewel he and his minions all wore on his chest that I omitted (so he could better fit in Cobra's ranks), I've changed very little from the original toy and cartoon design. The bionic implant around his head is more complex and detailed than his original, though.

Parts Recipe:
Dr. Mindbender - Head
Bench-Press - Upper Torso
Heavy Duty - Lower Torso
Arctic Snake-Eyes - Upper Arms, Legs, Gloves
General Grievous - Collar

  1. I loved the Bionic Six cartoon back in the '80s, and this Scarab is wicked! Have you made any other characers from Bionic Six? I've always thought that Anniversary Quick Kick's head would make for a decent Karate-1.

    Nice work!

  2. Hey, thanks for the kind words! No plans for any other characters other than Madame O possibly... I tend to be far more interested in the villains from these old 'toons and toys. :) Good call on Karate-1 though...

    I'm afraid I'd have to do the whole family if I tackled one... :D
