Croc Armor Steve Irwin by Jin-Saotome Croc Armor Steve Irwin by Jin-Saotome
You know who he is, the familiar shout of "CRIKEY!" still lingering in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Steve Irwin was a great hero in life, so great he deserves to be a superhero. Here Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin gets the superhero treatment and is pitted against his deadly adversary, Death Ray. Irwin was made from the head of the talking Walkabout Steve Irwin action figure, LCBH Super Patriot body, and ML Face Off Red Skull forearms. His chest armor came from Batman and croc-helmet from a DCD Armory Aquaman.His tail, shoulderpads, Croc-Rocket punch, and belt came from a toy alligator. The Hawk-board was made from a Spiderman 3 Green Goblin flightboard and Drop Bear from a toy koala.

Death Ray is of course his adversary and was made from a Spiderman classics Venom, toy stingray, Spawn Interlink armor for his forearms, DCU Desaad chest pack, and Megablocks War Machine leg armor. His laser spines came from some clear cocktail forks and death ray gun from a Star Wars Grevious Bodyguard crossover figure.

I remember watching Steve Irwin's The Crocodile hunter show and wanted to honor him with these figures. He was a real life superhero, teaching kids and adults about the wonders of nature. I'll always remember cringing every time a snake or croc leaped at him, Steve was one fearless host! He will be missed greatly by everyone and is truly an Australian Legend.

I'm a fan of how that croc-et launcher looks, and the armour as a whole.

This is hilariously awesome! You should get somebody to make a fake toy commercial for this! I loved Steve as a kid and I know that he is rolling in his grave...laughing.

Sadly they would make a toy like this to exploit his death but good job and a fitting tribute he will be missed

I... I... I am... Speechless.
This is like, the most cool and left field thing I have seen you yet! I thought the mecha presidents were crazy stuff but this... Very original!
His perpetual look of shock makes it look like he is not in control of his body and is watching stunned and terrified as it runs amok. Just adds to the fun factor.

Although this is more awesome then Chuck Norris, Saxton Hale, and Raptor Jesus combined; I have to point out that he looks more like Snake Man from the Mega Man series...

...which ultimately adds to the awesome. Kudos. :iconbadassplz:

Alright, I'll be the one to say it. This custom is in pretty bad taste. You're pretty much using the death of someone to make a profit, and thinly veiling it as a "tribute".

Drop bears are probably Australias most unknown yet violently dangerous animal.
To all who foreigners who wish to visit australia please do yourselves a favour and ask the local shop for drop bear repellent, it will save you the pain and embarrassment of an unexpected drop bear attack.

you wont believe the amount of tourists i meet who have absolutely no idea about them..

I'll never understand why people call him a hero and an inspiration.
He was selfish.
He was reckless and intentionally endangered himself for the sake of ratings, and left a wife and child alone for the sake of his stupidity and his show.
I think he is a blight of Australia and no one should follow his footsteps

Don't you have both Mel Gibson and Hugh Jackman as well? Granted, in recent years Gibson's been kinda crazy... but Jackman's still a bad ass mofo.

Hugh Jackman i have no quarrel with, he is has done nothing to support an annoying stereotype really, he is just an awesome nice guy. but mel gibson was born in New york
