My Custom Mods [mod 4]: Storm!

June 28, 2010


STORM (Danger Room) A pretty solid if dirt-cheap representative of the X-Men’s weather-wielding demi-goddess, DR Storm’s sculpt is just OK. Quite bland compared even to the X-Plosion version (using the unfortunate X-treme X-Men costume): This mod idea came pretty much by accident.
