Frankencastle "What's in a Name?" Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:25884  
Name:Frankencastle "What's in a Name?"
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:December 2, 2010
Base Figure:See Recipe
Height:6.00 inches
So as some of you may know, I issued a challenge on the forums, the Fantastic Fodder Faceoff. Sadly no one took the challenge so I went ahead and did it anyway. The FFF challenge was to make a figure entirely out of fodder, I had so many great looking pieces and just wanted to use them.

So what's with the "what's in a name" title? I hear you ask, well let me explain. I have little to no knowledge whatsoever on Frankencastle apart from the fact he likes guns so I made my own interpretation based on his name and thought guns??, nah swords are much cooler. My only visual reference was the amazing Frankencastle Asch gave us not long ago so thanks Asch!!. Now after the challenge got no takers I decided to break the rules and pull a moonknight apart for bits, it just looks better. He now has alteranate arms held on by magnets (my first time using magnets).

Recipe:
Head - Deathstroke variant cut off beard and sculpted new hair. Added an LED off an old Xbox wire for the eye and sculpted the
metal plate.
Upper Torso - ML Punisher
Lower Torso - ML Ult. wolverine Sculpt to blend the two torso pieces together at the Ab joint
Right Arm - Ultima Online Baron Driller
Left Arm - ML Moonknight
Alt. Left arm - upper potion is a ML falcon arm then Lady Deathstrike 2000x Trapjaw gun at the end
Upper legs - ML Ult. Wolverine
Lower legs and boots - Moonknight
Belt - LCBH Anne O'Brien
Scarf - LOTR Elf skirty thing
Sword - kill bill Uma (that's Hatori Hanzo steel)

Like I said I know he looks nothing like he's supposed to but I like the way he turned out, hope you enjoy it too. Pictures of his alternate arm can be seen inside the thread.

I'm a little confused by your comment Scorpsting

very fine (robot arm!) I guess the people got confused, cause some customizers actually use this"fodder" in everyday customs.

Asch - cheers mate, it seems a lot of people don't know about the challenges. We're currently working on getting the realm challenges there own Area in the forums in the hope it will become popular. Oh and cheers for the visual reference again.

well, I didn`t heard about challenge.. anyway, sweet custom, love mechanics
Darththomas - Monday, December 6, 2010
Cheers Tinks, maybe we'll see one from you soon??
PJ- I was pretty lucky to find parts that match so well really the hardest part was matching up the two torso pieces
Redmist - cheers bud, My next project seems to be mostly fodder too, though it wasn't my intention.

this is amazing !! espically as it's just fodder I couldn't make this if I had all the right pieces !! well done
Redmist - Friday, December 3, 2010
Dynamic use of fodder! Dayum! This really came 2gether nicely, dude!
Darththomas - Friday, December 3, 2010
Thanks guys,
TRQ- best ever?, cheers man not bad for fodder head, funny thing is the torso seems to be from the very same series 4 Pun you like the head of.
G-Brand - great to hear from you mate, the challenges are a new feature we're trying to get established but not many people are taking them up, I suspect it's because people just don't know about it, check it out here viewtopic.php?f=15&t=34319. Unfortunately this was going to be my entry and I'm hoping on taking up another challenge so I can't participate at the mo, maybe we'll rumble later
bjpalm- Thanks mate, I'm particularly happy with the bionic eye.
Merge sentinal- Yeah I remember your fodderbots I think maybe they were the subconcius inspiration for me issuing the challenge, pretty sure I commented on at least one of them?, you should check out the challenge thread too, I really want it to work and become permanent so make some challenges and I would say accept some but I don't think there are any active at the mo
Merge Sentinel - Friday, December 3, 2010
Veeeeery nice! The head is spot on and the claw arm is really something amazing. Ironically, I actually took up your challenge without knowing it... check out my Fodderbots. There are I think 4 or 5 of them up now, all made 100% of fodder, posted pretty close to the time you issued your contest. Take a look, consider it a disqualified but still interesting contest entry. Sorry I didn't see it proper. ^_^;;

G Brand - Thursday, December 2, 2010
