Vultureman Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:27791  
Name:Vultureman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Thundercats
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:February 25, 2011
Base Figure:Jakks Deluxe WWE
Height:8.50 inches
Finally rescued Vultureman from the WIPs box, Started way back in September last year. Been meaning to get on with him for a while now but every time I looked it just seemed like too much work. I’m real happy I did and am well pleased with the results.

Recipe
Base= Jakks WWE Deluxe

Head = Vintage LJN Vultureman with a Beta Ray Bill head shaved down and sculpted inside. The whole bottom half of the head is sculpted.

Forearms and hands = ML Blackheart held on with screws

Lower legs and feet = ML Blackheart held on with screws

Feathers = LJN Vultureman, sanded down and sculpted feather at the front and top of back

Skirt = Foamy with twistie ties inside and wire for the trims

Big gun = One of Vultureman’s bird brained inventions made from a ridiculously oversized GI Joe accessory with an action man barrel and some tubes slapped on there. (I Based it on a picture I saw somewhere not sure if it was a fan pic or what)

Small Gun = Think it might be MOTU

Skin = Sculpted head to toe for a bird like skin texture

Hopefully I’ll have more MOTU to show soon

Like I said really happy I got motivated on this one and he looks great with the others, check out the group shot and others inside the thread

Cheers 3b and even though it took me 5 months to do,it's probably still quicker than a toy company

WOW That is one incredible figure, I honestly don't think any factory produced figure would compare to this the rest of them are BADA$$ as well

Cheers dudes
Z4H - my god demands more than just goats
bjpalm - I gotta agree although I always thought the head sculpt was excellent and that's why I decided to use the top half.

WOW!! If only the new figures looked like that!! Great job on the sculpting and paint! I never had Vultureman when I was little but I know he didn't look this cool! Great job on him and all of the mutants!
