The Shredder - FOOT Clan Master
Here's another 80's villain for my collection. This is actually my second attempt at the main adversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was unhappy with lack of spikes on my first try, and initially thought I'd start over from scratch. But there was a lot I liked about the figure, so I decided to try to add more armor and pointy-bits.
It's been a frustrating figure to work on, the spikes are so small and fragile, silver paint is always a pain to work with, his torso looks broken in the group shot with the FOOT Soldiers, but he's done and I'm generally happy with the result.
I was particularly happy with his trophy staff... all it needs is a giant rat skull.
