The arrival of Mattel’s JLU Gorilla Grodd figure meant many customizers could now achieve their life-long dreams of creating their very own Gorilla City populace. Or at least one citizen, if not the whole city. I knew I’d be making Solovar. I also knew he’d need backup.
Like Solovar, the Gorilla City Citizen didn’t need too much in the way physical changes from Grodd. I Dremeled down Grodd’s scalp, then used Magic Sculpt to shape a new hair-do and a slight change to the beard. (All based on a background gorilla from an episode.)
The rest is a snazzy paint job.
