Here's my pride and joy again, Jin Saotome done in a 6-inch Marvel Legends scale! He's been upgraded again, this time with an entirely new sculpted upper body, new shoulders/spikes, reworked hands, and whole new feet that give him added articulation.

You've seen him before but here's the background on Jin's custom. He was the first figure I had ever sculpted anything on using Aves Apoxie sculpt for his chest/vest/pockets shown here: [link] The original figure was made a while ago, whenever Marvel Legends series 9 hit and I snagged the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider. As you can see he was a combination of parts: [link]

Over the years tho the figure has gone through about four transformations or 'upgrades' if you will. Just recently the rubber from Ghost Rider's jacket degraded. You see I had sprayed it with spray-sealer before I knew NOT to use it on soft rubber parts. I had to rip the goo off him and completely resculpt the upper body, save for that one section of front chest. Also the spikes gooed up so I replaced them with hard plastic spikes.

Thanks to Kyle Robinson's casts of Jin's armor I was able to fix just about everything! He was stripped of paint, repainted, given a new articulated bandana, and a larger more poseable scarf. Proper kanji has been painted on his back that translates to "Number one in the universe". With the new cast parts I'll probably make a new Jin to sell similar to this one but keep this figure and continue to work on it in the years to come.

And that's the history of this figure, now new and improved for your viewing enjoyment!
