D'Ken Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:13653  
Name:D'Ken
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men
Creator:Gambit4Hire  
Date Added:March 28, 2009
Base Figure:Archangel
Height:5.00 inches
Emperor D’Ken is probably one of the most evil of all villans in the X-men universe. This is my attempt to recreate the deadly foe as he was presented in the 90’s X-men cartoon.

From the neck down Archangel was the best choice to be used for his slender body and the head is from Sunfire. Removed back wings and wing mechanism and sculpted a new back. Removed ponytail and sculpted new “hair” and goatee with slight beard. Pinted figure head to toe. Used green, light green and black fabric for the vest/cloak and gems placed around the figure’s neck. The wings which are removable were made with white fabric and red wire glued onto the edges. Ultra fine sharpie pen was used for the wing details.

That's exactly how I feel about the time I spent working on Starkaor. No hits, no views, ... nothing. But hooter-girl (Dr. Soranik Natu) is as popular as can be. Ke 'Haan, as well. Go figure.
I suppose I should be happy that I got any looks at all, right?

Thanks for the comment, ah I finally got some recognition on evil Emperor D'Ken. lol. I still think of all the time I spent on that little fabric outfit of his and have to laugh - hours.

The fabric work is great, especially in the first photo. The wings show an incredible eye for detail. I can see why you value this piece. He really looks like the character he's modeled after. Great work!
