Shield (Original) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:7831
Contest:Ostentatious Originals
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Date Added:June 4, 2008
Base Figure:ML Abomination
Height:9.75 inches
Shield, intergalactic thief and high priced muscle for hire.

Shrouded in a steel-like carapace Shield's under body is already as solid as a rough hewn diamond. But these are the traits of his space-faring race. Incredible strength and armor so tough that it can withstand the silicate storms of his harsh homeworld.

But Shield is a more than just an alien. He is a mutant of his own race. In addition to the natural toughness of all his kin, Shield has the ability to slow the molecules of his body, and those around him to generate a bone chilling cold. In earth's moisture-rich atmosphere, he can create walls and blasts of ice. More frightening than that, by lowering his internal temperature to far below freezing, he can stop nearly all molecular motion, making him virtually indestructible.

Shield was a criminal that plagued the galaxy for many years. Finally brought down by one of his own race, an intergalactic bounty hunter who would be known on Earth as "Gargantuan", he was being transported to a waiting specially designed prison. Shield was being kept under powerful heat cannons to cancel out his powers, but he was playing possum! The heat did virtually nothing, and he was given enough time to concoct a plan. After a mighty brawl, killing nearly all the guards, he was able to tear a hole in the side of the ship and push himself out into space towards a planet they were passing.

With the guards dead, the ship crippled and nothing but the vastness of space between himself and his new home, Shield froze himself into a state of stasis for nearly 2 years while gravity did it's work and crash landed him into Earth.

Surviving reentry without even a scratch, he began to take to his old ways causing trouble for the heroes of earth while looking for a ride off this "backwater dump".

Finally picking up with a local villain calling himself Sword, due to his choice of weapon. As Shield calls it, his "magic pig-sticker". They nearly brought about WWIII by commandeering a loaded nuclear sub in the pacific. They were stopped by the heroes of the super team Retribution. Shield managed to get away by nearly tearing off the wing of the team's leader, buying him enough time to escape.


Shield is a ML Abomination, with arms, feet and armor from Onslaught scraps.
The dreadlocks come from an ML Blackheart, but the face is an unknown alien I picked up in an auction lot. If anyone can ID it please post!

The color is 5 coats of various greys to blue, ending in tamiya metallic blue.

Just finding this guy almost 7 years later, but this is a REALLY nice figure! Definitely deserved the Gold.

Looks like you haven't posted to the Realm in a few years, but work like this needs a comeback!

Thanks Johnny.

I've mostly gotten out of customizing since we had kids, but I still check the site from time to time.
Another couple years and I'll probably pull out the paints and xactos again, once the kids are old enough to participate.

Hey there. I've been meaning to fill you in on that head you used for Shield! Congrats on the gold. well worth it!
The head you used is from a character called Moloch. A creation from the mind of Stan Winston studios called Mutant Earth. You can check out the toy review at Raving Toy Maniac. Pretty crazy stuff. Moloch is one of the bad guys in the story. I collected the whole series and have been contimplating for quite some time now to use them in some customs. Do yourself a favour and check it out. Stan Winston Studios are the guys who make all the animatronics for Jurassic Park etc. Very cool!
Anywho, Congrats again on your excellent creation. I know it's VERY late, but you know what they say....better late than never lol. Keep up the excellent work.

Thanks bud, totally dug your sheep dude too, very original!
It took forever to decide on what bits to use for him, and the face came to me in a lot with a bunch of fodder figures.
Talk about good fortune!
I'm really pleased everyone liked him.

Yay!!! CONGRATS!!!
The Blackheart hair on that face really rocked and the choice of colors complemented the figure quite well. Never thought the BAF onslaught sections could make anything that cool because they were so unique, ya proved me wrong!

My first Gold!!!!!
Thanks for the kind words and the votes! I'm glad everyone liked my character!!!!!!
Like a lot of my creations he came from my (and my group's) role playing characters from highschool.
His design is many years old, and it is great to finally have him in a 3D form.
Thanks again.
