I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Wow. IP infringement much? That is an exact copy of the Muton from the XCOM: Enemy Unknown video game by Firaxis.

      The slits in the mouth are horizontal in Firaxis’ game.. I’ve been playing it over the last few days. (looks like I need to order one or two before someone spoils the fun)

      Yeah, the horizontal line on the mouthpiece is in the center on the game on theirs it’s on the outside. Also, theirs has hydraulics on the legs and a segment along the top of that collar thing. There are a few other minor cosmetic differences.. Obviously it’s a “not-muton” in the original forum topic I saw the preview from he even says as much. I personally hope he’s able to keep up what he’s doing though.. at least until Firaxis decides to release miniatures.

        Well, when you have to play 7 differences to tell two designs aren’t identical…

        I dig the sculpt a lot, but I can’t get behind the fact that it is so heavily “inspired” from the Muton. Thanks for pointing that out.

          Eh, like I said it’s obvious.. and he even mentioned doing more “not-XCom” figures (he has a full range of Fallout and some Borderlands).. I’m working on a XCom Deadzone thing.. so I needed this specifically.. I can see how others would be put off by it though.
