    Figure Slipknot -- Enemy of Firestorm and Member of the Suicide Squad

    Slipknot's first appearance was in Fury of Firestorm #28 (October 1984), in which he was created by writers Joey Cavalieri and Gerry Conway and artist Rafael Kayanan.

    His alter ego Christopher Weiss works for a chemical company in the southern United States, where he develops his formula for the durable ropes he would later use.

    Slipknot first battles, and loses to, Firestorm before eventually becoming a member of the Suicide Squad, a team of costumed characters, all serving the government for their own reasons. Many members are criminals, who are promised a reduced sentence if they survive their missions.



    My custom Mego Slipknot is built on a ZICA Type S body with black hands from CTVT; head is a modified Reverse Flash head originally available on drmego.com with paints by me; boots from CTVT painted by yours truly; costume by me as well. I modified the costume a bit because I really do not like the holes cut in the sides of it or those huge sleeves.



    Wrapping up his enemy Firestorm in a nice little package...





    I hope you enjoy my customs as much as I do, and, as always, thanks for looking!

    Peace, Love, and Megos!

    Slipknot is a running gag over on the Fire and Water podcast, particularly the Who's Who episodes. He's even mentioned in the closing theme!

    Great job as always, Austin!
