On a toy-customizing forum that I belong to, a member wanted to know how they could make custom guns for these enemy characters from the Konami 1992 X-men Arcade video game:



I told them that they could modify a basic cylinder shape to create guns like that, and then, because I have no life, I proceeded to make the top one as an example.  Here it is, constructed entirely out of newsprint, white glue, tissue paper, and acrylic paint:



I resized the reference image above until the characters were about six inches tall, then took my measurements for the weapon directly from that.


Marvel Legends: Faceoffs Leader and Littlest Pet Shop "Scooter" Blythe.


The original Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder.


Marvel Legends 9 War Machine & Marvel Legends 10 Mystique (which is appropriate, considering that she's a boss in that X-men arcade game).


Marvel Legends 4 Beast.

I might give the gun a black or dark blue paint wash, but I kind of like the bright, cartoony video game colors too.

Amazing what you can make with the simplest of things.  That turned out really well and thank you for showing us how it was done.

I loved that game! "I am Magneto, master of magnet."

You did an excellent job constructed that gun, the details are perfect!

I never, in a million years, would have guessed this was made out of newspaper! It turned out so perfect!
