Pyron (Darkstalkers) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:15049
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Darkstalkers
Date Added:May 27, 2009
Base Figure:DC Despero
Height:7.50 inches
About a week ago, and quite by accident while working on another figure for a different set, I was able to convert a discarded recipe into a Darkstalkers figure. While it's not quite done yet, I thought, "I love Darkstalkers, why not do the whole cast!?" So, I started building Dimitri, Donovan, lord Raptor, the 'already-on-the-go' Bishamon, and the Anakaris that I had in the works for my MvC2 set, and last night, while digging through my figure and parts drawers, I found what I feel to be a perfect base for Pyron, and here he is, custom no. 43!
The recipe is super simple:

Head: Marvel Select Moonknight w/lollipop and toothpicks for the horns
Body: DC Despero w/ flames from CvSNK2 Iori and Kyo

Cosmo Disruption base:

-Metal rods from whisk X2
-Flames from CvSNK2 Iori
-Hot glue

There was very little filling and sanding needed, and the flames were applied with hot glue. The paint app was done using Italian Red, Orange, Camel Yellow, Lemon Yellow, and Racing White in which I did my best to blend nicely. So there you have it; he was a fun little diversion whilst I wait for epoxie to cure and paint to dry with the other projects on my table, and an a solid entry to ease into the Darkstalkers series. I also want to give a big shout out to Shinobitron and Niallskie for their Pyron customs as they were a great inspiration.
Hope you all like him, and I'll be back with more soon!

Awesome!!! The only improvements I could think of are some extra add-on pieces to simulate some of the crazy transformations his body goes through during attacks--and maybe a giant, flaming pillar accessory with his face laughing on it (one of his win poses).
