Another Captain America villain! Mad scientist and biochemist Arnim Zola was contracted by the Nazis to develop an elite squad of genetically engineered soldiers, and to aid in the development of various other fiendish and evil deeds. Another Kirby character, Zola is one of my favorite designs of all time. Equipped with a holographic projection of himself inside of a biomechanically engineered body, Zola is also equipped with a sophisticated thought control device in place of his head. Truly wierd stuff. Anyway, this figure uses a Wolverine figure, some styrene, and a photoshopped and doctored photograph for the holographic image in his torso. I wanted to make the technology look harsh and old fashioned, almost like something you'd see in a James Whale movie crossed with an element of realism. The electronics surrounding the hologram screen (made to look like a rudimentary television monitor), are made from styrene.
