A lot of the fun of video gaming to me is creating characters. When I come up with a cool character in a game, sometimes I see if I can recreate the character as an action figure by customizing a toy. Here is Sythbane as I appear online in Halo 2 (and soon, in Halo 3), which I made by customizing a tan Halo 2 action figure.
I also came up with another Sythbane avatar for Rainbow Six Vegas by painting my beard onto a G.I. Joe, as you can see here.
