The Mars Volta members Cedric Bixler Zavala (vocals) and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (guitar) want to reinvent the face of rock as we know it. But first they have a few Zeppelin/Santana fetishes to work through. With terrific power and voodoo energy, drums flail and guitars crunch; what better way to celebrate their newfound incarnations in plastic?

For the most part, Cedric (the guy on the left) is a repaint, though his hair was created with MagicSculpt. Omar, on the other hand, goes a bit further with newly sculpted cuffs, collar and hair (also created with MagicSculpt). As with the other Minimates, the faces were created first by hand, then brought into Illustrator for outputting.
