MOTUC Darth Vader (Masters of the Universe) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:34564
Name:MOTUC Darth Vader
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Date Added:November 26, 2011
Base Figure:MOTUC Count Marzo
Height:6.25 inches
Have to give a nod to Mr. Smiley for his MOTUC Darth Vader got me to thinking about tackling one of my own.
Base is MOTUC Count Marzo, lower legs, lower arms, and "kilt" are from a DCU Lex Luthor Battle suit. Armor from count Marzo.. Head and some of the fodder used is from a battle force Star Wars Darth Vader. Light saber is from fodder and the handle of a paint brush. I wanted him to have another accessory so I made him a shield using clear plastic I colored red and then painted with electric/lightning effects. Wanted to look like all his gear was technological in nature.
Comments and Feedback welcome.

I finally got you. MOTUC is a catergory on my chart so judging on the detail of the figure your "toy" rating would be a 9.1

Thanks for all the feedback this one came together rather quickly so not a lot of WIP pics. I will say I love the sculpt of the Power Suit Luthor boots, BUT.. The fact they are angled at the ankles for a wider stance, made me think twice about using them.
I wanted to note that Unknownsoldier13 and ZoltanMotherwell have valid arguments. I did teeter-totter with the paint scheme. I mean Vader is the man in black next to Johnny Cash. It ended up being just a personal preference in the end. I personally like black and red combinations, so I left the red cape, plus I was trying to distance my custom from my previous Darth Vader. and the arms left unpainted was to tie it in more with the MOTU figures. If I had arms like that I would rip the sleeves off of all my shirts and suits and let everyone enjoy the gun show. LOL. God Bless and Happy Holidays.

That is incredible and a crossover I would love to see!!! My only critique would be to paint Vader's cape black ,Both to further distance it from the Marzo recipe and for character reasons.
