Slithe Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:16694  
Name:Slithe
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Thundercats
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:August 9, 2009
Base Figure:Limited Edition Hulk
Height:9.00 inches
Well, I said he was on his way and here he is, the leader of the evil mutants Slithe. I believe in America the base figure is Target exclusive hulk but over here in England it's called limited edition hulk. I had loads of fun making this dude and am really pleased at how he turned out. Onto the recipe:

1.Got rid of all details on the hulk head, face, hair, ears, the lot.
2.Dremelled the pant details off the legs.
3.Took the tail of a T-rex toy and glued to hulk's bottom, filled in gaps with aves
4.The most time consuming part, covered whole body with aves.
5.Got a piece of vintage slithe and pressed it into the aves to create scale effect.
6.Cut out eyes, nose, mouth and ears from vintage slithe and glued to blank hulk head.
7.Sculpted in the cheeks, tops of eyes and rest of head with aves.
8.Cut spikes from pieces of plastic glued on and covered with aves.
9.cut toes from vintage slithe and glued onto hulk feet filled gaps with aves.
10.Made belt from leather dog collar.
11.Straps made from electrical wire insulation.
12.Cut out skull from vintage slithe and attached a metal ring to belt and straps.
13.Made skirt from a pillow case and glued edges to prevent fraying.
14.Made head armour from foam and glued a gem on from a piece of jewellery.
15.Wrist band made from dog collar.
16.Made arm band from a twistie tie.
17.Made axe from a random axe I had and a wooden stick found out the back of my house.
18.Tied it all together with a string from an action man accessory.
19.Painted the whole thing with GW paints including six shades of green for detail.

He now stands with my other thundercats and looks really imposing next to jackalman. I'm now going back to my good thundercats as I have the bases but no time to do them, I'm also trying to find bases for Monkian, Vultureman and Rataro so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy and I'll be back with more in a month or so.
