Orphan Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:25392  
Name:Orphan
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:tommyx  
Date Added:November 7, 2010
Base Figure:Moon Knight
Height:6.00 inches
Guy Smith went by the code-names Mr. Sensitive and the Orphan during his time as a member of X-Force/X-Statix. On what was to be the team's final mission, the Orphan and the rest of the team were killed by assassins.
For this figure, the body is Moon Knight, and the unmasked head is Clint Barton/Ronin. The helmet was made by combining War Machine's face plate with a SHIELD Agent's helmet. The circlets on the costume are from the craft store. And now comes your question...How did I get the big head inside the small helmet? Answer: I didn't! I created an alternate head from a SHIELD Agent that slips inside the helmet, and made extra removable antennae.
Making this figure's head was a major pain! I started out by lightly adding grey and purple to the Ronin head. I didn't like it, so I tried pink. I hated this, so I stripped off all paint, including the original, then painted purple and touched up with grey.
Thanks for looking, feel free to leave a word or two, and as always, Make Mine Marvel (Legends)!

take care,
Chris

redmist, Tystarr, chaosemperor, and Therapist: Thanks for the kind words. I've got a couple more X-Statix members up my sleeve. And Tystarr, I look forward to seeing yours.
cheers,
Chris

I was so going to make this! I'm still going to do it though. I'm going to use this DC Direct fig and attempt to make a removable mask. Might have to find a different head sculpt.

I agree with Therapist about the black dry brush, but it really gives this custom a type of cool gritty realism, I also dig the removable helmet...BRAVO!!!

Dude I love the Xstatix. Normally I'm not a fan of that heavy of a black dry brush but it works with the look of some of there comics. Great work
