Custom #:22586  
Name:BUI (Toguro Team)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Yu Yu Hakusho
Creator:getsa  
Date Added:June 22, 2010
Base Figure:ML Magneto Body, Iron Fist Head
Height:6.00 inches
Bui is a member of toguro team (villains) at the dark tournament saga of yu yu hakusho anime. He has this huge axe and a... Uhmm.. He has a huge axe! And he's powerful!!! Haha! And no, he's not the long lost brother of shredder from tmnt...
I really like the character but no figure of him was made, so there, I made one! :)
Bui of toguro team in his articulated glory! ML style!

-Removed magneto's cape, sculpted the armor pieces and head gear. Covered the shoulder joints with dome shaped plastic pieces before sculpting the armor so that articulation won't be hampered and joint would still be movable on the shoulder area. Used rubber parts from lotr figs to replicate cloth like parts of bui's armor/costume. Spikes were form plastic toothpicks.

Built the giant axe from scratch, used small plastic medicine bottle, protractor(round ruler), paint brush handle, screwed in a small chain and put x-23's toe spike at the end of the chain and then covered it with plumber's putty and painted with acrylics...

I was wondering if you'd be willing to Sell this figure?? Also if you'd be willing to make & sell Karasu(sp?) As well.

I'll eventually make a karasu but I doubt that I would be letting it go as I really want to complete the toguro team and have them on display in my cabinet together with yusuke's team.

thank you for your interest though. glad you liked this one.

salamat katoto at idol na loosecollector! hehe! masaya ako't nagustuhan mo din si bui.
@asch -thank you so much sir! yeah, that's what I was thinking too, most people won't recognize him, and in a contest like this, put him face to face with a marvel character and this custom will surely eat dust. haha! kidding aside, I was really happy that this custom landed an "ok" score and some people recognized who he was and even left a comment that they really like the fig. (conundrum and his girlfriend, gigantophitecus, rpetras, claudia 84, redmist, G brand and those who've voted) that was more than enough to make me happy. thanks guys!

darn, so beautiful work, shuld be higher. problem with exotic character is that people often think: "cool! but who the hell is that!?" ..
loosecollector - Monday, August 9, 2010
Hah! Bui! I liked this guy back then. But.... I like this custom more

thanks for all your comments guys! I know bui is not a well known character from yu yu hakusho as he's only a supporting role on the villains team on one of the chapters in the series and the anime series itself is only popular on some countries that's why I'm really happy that you guys liked him too, especially those of you who knows the character. thanks!
I'll be doing more yu yu hakusho characters. karasu (another member of the toguro team) is on the table right now, as well as the green suit wearing yusuke and the devil yusuke. I just have to finish sculpting devil yusuke's hair. thanks again guys!

t's really great! I loved this series, too. Keep doing Yu Yu Hakusho's Customs

One of my favorite characters from one of my favorite shows!
Excellent version of the character, and bonus points for going more obscure!
Love it!

Awesome custom! I'm not familiar with the character or show, but my girlfriend is and she absolutely loves it. For that, as well as great execution and creative use of household objects, I award you a 5.
