The Manananggal Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:13752  
Name:The Manananggal
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:loosecollector  
Date Added:April 1, 2009
Base Figure:Unknown monster
Height:4.00 inches
This is the third piece for our pcbh (pinoy comicbook heroes)set.

Character background: the manananggal is one of the most feared monsters in Philippine folklore. It belongs to the "aswang" type. Meaning, much like werewolfs, it changes form during night-time. It splits by the waist, leaves its bottom half and flies away to terrorize the innocent. This guy loves to eat unborn babies, liver, heart and other gooey internal organs! Gotta keep this body nice and strong :D!

It can fly via bat-like wings, has fangs, piercing tongue, sharp claws and superhuman strength most likely, equal to that of a werewolf. He's one tough customer. Its weakness is very lame. Sooo lame even I can beat this guy with one hand tied behind my back given enough prepwork. Ask me and i'll tell you :D.

Hope you like him. Standby for more Pinoy heroes and villains :D!

Maganda talaga bro! I'm looking forward to more Pinoy myth and legend characters from you like the tikbalang, kapre, tiyanak, diwata, syokoy and etc.... Very original ka talaga! Saludo ako sayo. Great job! .................Silayjoker

Oh man... literally when I was a kid I was scared to death of the stories of these Mananangals (no kidding!!!). Good thing I also know how to take care of this monster with the salt... IF you can find the other half that is!!! Great custom man, I'm sure to be waiting for some other Filipino myths I grew up with.

Patraw got the recipe right. Forgot to include it in the write-up.
Just chopped it up, sculpted the entrails and improved the paintjob a bit.

I believe the base body is Dracula from the much-maligned Van Helsing line. Cool custom, he'd be right at home in Castlevania.

What's the recipie? Is this a straight-up sculpt? Paints are EXCELLENT! Very spooky-lookin'.

That's totally wicked! Clean sculpt there, and the paint apps! Woohoo!
Put some salt on the lower half as per Filipino mythology, hehe
