"Frank was always telling folks about UFOs in the skies over his garage but nobody believed his tales of alien abductions. Look at him now--what do you think?"
A human-insect hybrid that appears as both an enemy and a playable character (if you can manage to unlock him) in Free Radical's Timesplitters 1 (2000) and Timesplitters 2 (2002) First-Person-Shooter (FPS) video games. Frank was just your average small-town auto mechanic until some visitors from the stars snatched him up and spliced his human DNA with select arthropods. Now, instead of tuning up engines, Insect Mutant Frank tools around Deathmatch maps, blowing away anything and everything that has the misfortune of crossing his path. If you have character abilities set to 'ON' in Timesplitters 2, the Insect Mutant has high stamina, moderate accuracy, and poor agility (you can't expect somebody with a giant bug growing out of their guts to be too coordinated). Interestingly, head shots only count on the insect's noggin, not Frank's, so, I guess that tells us who's in charge of their shared body.
I made this miniature action figure as an entry for a "Just Bug Off" insect-themed custom toy contest at Figure Realm.
For comparison purposes, below are some relevant images from the Timesplitters 2 game. My version of the insect anatomy ended up looking more praying mantis-like than the fly-ish source material.
