Mitsurugi Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:30037  
Name:Mitsurugi
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Soul Calibur
Creator:VariablePenguin  
Date Added:June 6, 2011
Base Figure:DCUC Hawkman upper, UFC Wrestler lower, LCBH Ripclaw head
Height:6.10 inches
This is Mitsurugi from Soul Caliber IV. He was made using the upper body of Hawkman (with the hole from where I ripped his wings off sculpted over), the modified legs of a UFC wrestling figure, and the head of Ripclaw (with the ponytail moved higher and face features sculpted on. His armor is sculpted or made from bits of fodder and foam. His sword is from a Sin City Miho figure. His skirt is made of fabric that is coated in glue to be rigged, but still mildly flexible. I bought the game and spent a lot of time analyzing his costume in game, from reference pictures, and from the character creator mode in game.

This is honest probably one of the best figures I've ever done. He was made for the custom swap at Toy Soup.

This is really well done. How did you sculpt the pants without sacrificing the articulation?

I wrapped the knees in plastic wrap to make sure the sculpt wouldn't bond to the actual joint and just kept moving the knee to make sure it was free.

This is outstanding! He is my favorite character from that game as well, so I may be biased, but this really is an excellent figure of him!
