Super-November Part 1: Reject X

Reject X is another sad, but never the less very dangerous, product of the wicked experiments of Dr Otto. The mad scientist continues to try to produce a viable super soldier program, despite his previous dreadful failures. Having adapted the mutogentic virus he used on  Strongarm, Dr Otto used it on his latest test subject, mild mannered weakling Ted Topps. The mutagenic virus was partially successful, greatly increasing Topps' muscle bulk, stamina and resilience  Like Strongarm, some of Todds' limbs failed to mutate, and Dr Otto sought to overcome this difficulty by amputating the weaker limbs and replacing them with cybernetic enhancements.
Unfortunately, perhaps as a result on the mutagenic virus, or the traumatic cybernetic surgery, Topps' mind was shattered. All that was left of Ted Topps was a rage filled monster with little concept of the world around. Attempts to install a cybernetic behaviour modifier failed, and Ted Topps was confined to Dr Otto's list of failed experiments. Being the tenth such failure, he was assigned the code name Reject X.


This is a Chronoscope Super-villain produced by Reaper. His name is Jack Hammer.  This figure is rather small, an effect enhanced by the fact that he is hunched over. I added him to a base with a curb to make him look a bit taller but generally I was a bit disappointed with the size of him. If he had been big enough to have gone on a 40mm base he would have looked amazing!

Sorry to hear about the scale but the sculpt is amazing! Great paint job too.

Sorry you hate the scale, but to be honest, not every super strong guy has to be huge. I know several guys that lifted weights/body built that was shorter guys. Personally, I love the figure and inspires me to pick one up (he is on my shopping list).

Great work on the model including the paint job.
