Chrome Dome Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:30120  
Name:Chrome Dome
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:June 8, 2011
Base Figure:House of M Iron Man
Height:6.00 inches
Here's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Chrome Dome ready to put a hurting on some rowdy reptiles! His design was a mix of the original toy (of which I'm a fan of the colors) and his SNES Tournament Fighters game sprite where he had different designs and extending limbs/fist spikes. Though the TMNT Tournament Fighters one was copper and gold instead of silver and gunmetal. This figure turned out to be the most incredibly balanced custom I've ever made too! All the poses you see aren't supported by anything. No base or hidden wires. He can really stand on one foot and stay like that. O.O

Chrome Dome's head and chestplate came from the original TMNT Playmates figure! Those sculpts were excellent for the era as evidenced by being able to use the head without any actual sculpting modification, all I did was added a ball joint to the neck. His body came from a ML House of M Iron Man, lower arms from a Mark VI Iron Man, hands from the Mark V, and feet from Deathlok. All the other details on him came from various fodder parts and his limb extensions came from a Hordak staff handle.

..... Speechless.... Honestly man, I hope to have a small fraction of your talent some day. Incredible work as always my friend.

The coolest TMNT remake I've seen. I remember this guy, you made it improved by 10. Paint job flexibility, and keeping the same scheme. I hope the new tmnt classics redo these supporting characters too...

For sure the most BAMF thing I've seen all day... possibly all week. The execution is right on. Even the poses are reminicent of Tournament Fighters... don't think I didn't notice. Well played, sir.

Excellent work; it looks miles better than the Playmates original. I also like that you incorporated the extending arms from the SNES fighting game. Go-Go-Gadget Chrome Dome!

AWESOME! I still have my orignal Chrom Dome figure (though the vac-metal paint is seriously worn on the head.) He was always one of my favorite Turtle villaians, and villain toys in general despite not having a clue who he was. Anyway this is just jaw-droppingly sweet. If I saw something that cool in stores, I'd snag it in a heartbeat.
