Stratos Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:28927  
Name:Stratos
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:April 18, 2011
Base Figure:DCUC Dr. Impossible
Height:6.00 inches
Next up in my continuing quest to do all the major MOTU players it Sean Coner......wait, I mean Stratos. This one came together pretty quick over the last week, I didn't even stop to take WIP shots for this one. The Paint job took the longest here, lot's of detail to pick out and far too many S logos, I mean surely you don't need your initials on every piece of technology, or maybe that's jus the way it works in Avion?

Anyhoo, here's the recipe

Base = DCUC Dr. Impossible, any would do but this seemed best as it's mostly black.

Head = 200x Stratos Dremmel to fit DCUC neck and peg.

Lower arms and wings = 200x Stratos grafted onto Dr. Imp upper arms and sculpted fur.

Harness, belt, loin cloth = 200x Stratos.

Backpack = 200x Stratos, dremmel to back of harness to fit, still fires but I might jus glue that up??

Lower legs = 200x Stratos.

Feet = 200x Stratos grafted onto Dr. Imp. Sculpted fur around bottom of thrusters and on top of feet.

Painted with Citadel paints and sealed with satin varnish.


Plenty more MOTU still to come including man-at-arms and standard Skeletor

More pics inside the thread.

@Toxin venom - Thanks man, took a while to get the greay just right, here's a couple more pics I took, not sure if they're actiony enough
@ Pulpy Fiction - a pleasure as always man, gotta keep pushing them paints and maybe next time......maybe
@dbocustoms - Really??, thanks man, hopefully my next one will be just as good.
@mmdiego - that's cool man, it makes a comment so much more sweeter when the person commenting doesn't know the character but can still appreciate it.
@Bobtheodd - got to agree mate they are awesome but the static poses and action features just aren't the way I roll, cheers bud.
@Shinobitron - Thanks man, always great when you stop by.
@RedRebelCustoms - Cheers man, I hope I did your childhood memories Justice
@AREZ - Great to see you here pal and to get a Bad Azz comment, got many more planned.
@bjpalm1994 - I wouldn't have anything to do if they had made them like they did, plus I'd prolly be paying £20+ per fig so I'm kinda glad they didn't
@cosmicfantasycustoms - I won't rule out doing the snakmen and the horde but no plans just now, there are plenty more to be getting on with, thanks again mate.
@GOLIATH_CUSTOMS - Glad you and Tony like man, thanks for trading me the donor body and for your comment.

Have always loved your MOTU customs and this is no exception, I take off my hat to you!

LIKE MY FRIEND TONY THE TIGER WOULD SAY, THIS IS GREEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAATTTTTT!!!!!!
Cosmic Fantasy Customs - Monday, April 18, 2011
Simply breathtaking as always. I love the old motu for what it is but the 200x reinvented just took it to another level as you with these sweet customs. I would love to know some of your future customs since you have been making these works or art and if you are planning on making snakemen and/or the horde? Would love to see that as always great job 10 out of 10.

NIIICE!!! Everytime I see a custom like this it irks me that they didn't do the line with this kind of poseability in the first place! Your Stratos is a thing of beauty! Top-Notch!!
AREZ - Monday, April 18, 2011
WOW JUST WOW!!!
STRATOS NEVER LOOKED THIS BAD AZZ before. Can't wait to see the rest of 200X series made Bro.
RedRebelCustoms - Monday, April 18, 2011
AWESOME! This looks amazing, the sculpting, paints, weapons amazing. Stratos was one of my favorite MOTU characters as a kid!
Shinobitron - Monday, April 18, 2011
Great work as always Darth, Stratos looks superb!
bobtheodd - Monday, April 18, 2011
Fantastic work! I like the sculpt on the 200X figures, by why couldn't they have this kind of articulation. You are making the figures they should have released in the first place. Awesome!
mmdiego - Monday, April 18, 2011

Wow! Still digging your masters stuff, and this is definitely why! The parts look pieced together amazingly, and the paints almost steal the show... almost!
