Time for darkstalkers figure no. 5 and custom no. 48, rikuo the merman prince. He was fun to do and I needed to get creative to put him together. Here's the recipe breakdown in a nutshell:

head: mgs2 raiden w/ sculpt and fodder, horns cut from a wraal helmet for the side fins, and a piece of dcuc batman cape for the back fin
upper body: sota ken w/ sculpt
arms: (biceps) sota dhalsim (forearms + hands) hellboy abe w/ lcbh savage dragon head fins
lower body: (upper) lcbh anne o'brien (lower) hellboy abe w/ sculpt

I had to do a fair amount of cutting to the head, as well as notching the back of it like a slat for the fin, fusing the upper and lower halves of the figure as well as the leg and arm joints, required a decent amount of cutting and re-shaping. The paint job was actually quite enjoyable this time around, and I'm really liking the switch from tamiya to vallejo paints; I feel it makes a big difference overall. Well, I hope you all like him, and I'll have another few soon! Cheers,

Another great Darkstalkers custom. I was never too fond of ol' fishface, but you've done a stellar job bringing him to life.
