Greetings all, been a while again (kids always getting in the way of fun stuff :-P ). This is the most recent project I've managed to get finished for a friend on Facebook. Kuma, the dual wielding samurai from Afro Samurai. If you've seen the anime you'll know this guys story, if not you need to go check it out, such a great show. I hadn't even seen it before I began working on this but for research purposes I had to give it a watch and what a pleasurable watch it was. Anyhoo, here's the somewhat compicated recipe for this guy.
Bear Head = Morbs Rex, sanded down and sculpted details. I sculpted the details over some screws so they would be nice and secure.
Jinno Head = F4 Reed Richards, sanded and sculpted over also gave him a nose job. The wires are from twistie ties.
Upper body = F4 Reed richards, again sanded down all detail and sculpted over the gi and the neck area.
Upper arms and ball joints = SMC Hobgoblin, sanded down and sculpted over.
Top half of lower arms and arm joint = X3 Beast, sanded down and sculpted over.
Bottom half of lower arms and hands = Wolverine, not sure which one, peg holes covered.
Crotch and legs = Same Wolverine as the hands, sculpted trouser bottoms and filled peg holes.
Shins = Archangel, sanded to prevent paint rub.
Foot articulation = Hobbit Bilbo Baggins for the flesh colored discs, works like the new marvel legends feet.
Feet = John McClean Die hard, modded to fit the new assembly. Sculpted sandals, the blocks underneath were sculpted over screws again for security.
Belt = Hobbit Bilbo, trimmed to fit.
Swords and Sheaths = Epic Heroes Deadpool.
Base = Sinister 6 Electro with a tree trunk from a Starwars base and fake grass glued on.
Training swords = Pound shop Ninja, sanded all detail off and repainted.
Fish = Playmobil, skewered a hole and painted.
Blood splats = Figure packaging and hot glue.
Teddy bear = sculpted over a twistie tie armature.
Painted and sealed with games workshop products.
Think that's the lot, the guy who I made it for has made a great review video of him so if you feel the need for more of this guy, click on the promotional link up top to hear his thoughts on my work. Also I'll be putting some WIP shots up on the forums in the next day or so. Thanks for having a glance and I hope to be back soon with some more completed projects. Till next time..............
