Splinter (Cartoon Version) (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
Finally got around to making a new custom Splinter, based on the original cartoon. Used 1988 Splinter as the base, replaced the tail with that of 2k3 Splinter and also the hands were replaced with 2k3 Splinter hands. The ears and others parts of the figure including the Kimono (suit) were sculpted on. The whiskers were made with a very thin wire. The figure retains all of it's original articulation. I was originally gonna use the same ears from the figure and reposition them higher on the head, but I decided to sculpt all new ears since I had to add a little on the head anyway. And I'm still not sure if the ears are too large or pointy. Might replace the whiskers with thinner ones later on I'm not sure if they look took thick. Cane is from a Movie Star Splinter with the wraps cut off and just painted over. Usually after painting a custom figure and calling it done I later notice things that need to be fixed, like gaps to fill in, things that need to be evened out, paint work or sculpt work that needs to be fixed etc, that is easier to spot after painting the figure and seeing it in pictures, so I'll probably have to post updated pics later on. Here it is for now:
