Master Chief Mark V Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:26591  
Name:Master Chief Mark V
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Halo
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:January 6, 2011
Base Figure:Mark V Spartan
Height:5.00 inches
Here's Master Chief in mark V armor, Halo Reach style! The body is from a regular Noble Six, head from the Mongoose Mark V 2pack and was easily attached by replacing the ball post with a yellowsub double-joint ball post. I didn't want to cheap out and have the limbs look the same as every other Reach spartan so I reworked the knees, added the knee pads, toe plates, and hands from a Series 8 Halo 2 MC, as well as giving the X-bolt hole designs on the arch plates.

The backpack over-shoulder ports were changed as well as the shoulder pauldrons coming from the series 8 Master Chief. The Reach figures' range of movement wasn't that great so I modded MC at the elbows, hips, knees, and the head which now sits on a double ball-joint so he can look in any direction. Finally to set him apart from the rest I painted him head to toe in golden-tinted olive-green and gave him the 117 designation. Master Chief is ready to take on the Covenant for the first time!

hey question or two, how did you get the knee pads and feet to change, I'm working on kinda the same thing just a different spartan, and your work is the best I have seen. any help or advice would be vary much appreciated. Oh! and where and how did you get a neck joint like that?

Eh, the fingers are still hard plastic and a pain to get to hold stuff. Wrists move a lot better tho! Nope, so far the legs are the same. However the heel is the cause of my leg problems. Usually the foot is rounded and I have to heat/flatten it or really ratchet the foot down.

Awesome Job!
I have 2 questions:
Do those hands do a better job of holding the weapons?
And
Have you had any problem with the Halo: Reach Spartans having one leg longer than the other?
