Tribe One Action Figure

For the folks that don't know Niles Gray aka Tribe One is an incredibly awesome rapper as well as a very good friend of mine.  He even wrote the theme song to Earth's Mightiest Podcast.  So earlier in the year his girlfriend contacted me about making a Tribe One action figure for his birthday.  She wanted a super hero version of him. She wanted to make sure he had a mic with something Devil Dinosaur-ish (that's his favorite comic book character ever).

So I talked to my fellow Earth's Mightiest Podcast co-host Alex to do the super hero design and this is the awesomeness that he came up with.  Notice the T and O logo design from Rusty Shackles.

So on to the action figure.  I ordered a Fisher Price T-rex with a poorly places trigger for chomping action.  The funny thing is that I ordered it from Ebay only to find out it's missing an arm!  So of course the only thing to do is to replace the arm with a gun!  The actual Tribe One action figure was made using a Marvel Legends Drax figure with a combination of a Black Panther collar and Dr. Doom cape.  I really didn't have the time to make the cape exactly how Alex drew it, but I think I got the point across.
