Shredder (Cartoon Version) (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
My recent custom TMNT needed a Shredder to battle with, I've been slowly working on this for roughly a month and a half, finally finished today. I actually used the Toon Shredder release, I could have just used the original '88 Shredder release since they are basically the same figure, but the only reason I chose to use Toon Shredder is the arms/hands/fingers are bulkier, they used some kind of different plastic that makes Shredder look buffer, and even the shoulders appear to be wider, anyone else ever notice this? I used "Aves Apoxie Sculpt" to sculpt a new shirt and belt onto the figure, and also to modify the helmet/mask. The flaps hanging down under the belt and the cape are made of "Kneadatite Green Stuff". Cape is permanently attached, and the advantage of the cape is that it helps prevent the figure from falling, the '88 Shredder/Toon Shredder were always really hard to balance and would easily fall over, but the cape provides more support so that it won't fall. I decided to keep him in his original crazy stance, though I did unflex two fingers on his right hand that were clenched, so that way he could have all the fingers gripping the sword. The armor is a combination of original '88 Shredder armor, Super Shredder armor, and apoxie sculpt. The sword was rounded near the top edge and painted. The figure retains all of it's original articulation. Used Testors Enamel Paints and Tamiya Acrylic Paints to paint the figure. What do you think?
Update 1/27/15: Used flat clear coat on the skin tone because it was too glossy. Took all new pics to reflect this change.
