Orko Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:32539  
Name:Orko
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:September 6, 2011
Base Figure:Orko
Height:4.50 inches
Another pretty easy one here. I did have a plan for a different Orko kind of a concept one but I realised Madtinker and Pulpyfiction had already smashed that one. Also I got a buffy figure in a trade and the arms were the perfect colour for this little guy, so the original was scrapped and this one began. I had a hard time trying to make this guy more articulated but I still managed to cram 8 more points of articulation onto him. The magnets are inspired by cosmicfantasycustom's excellent magnet work. Anyhoo onto the recipe.

Recipe:
Base figure = 200x Orko.

Arms = Buffy the vampire slayer with sculpted wizard sleeves.

Cuffs = 200x Orko.

Hands = 200x Orko.

Neck joint = Starwars ep3 Senator Palpatine knee joint.

Bases = 200x Orko and Orko repaint, these attach via a metal ball glued into the skirt and magnets on the ends. The torso is also held together by the same ball and a magnet.

Hat and Scarf = 200x Orko repaint, the pink scarf was a much more accurate colour than the green one.

Staff = 200x Orko

Effects:
Fire ball = Ghostrider's head flame.
Long fire effect = some 3.75" ironmman movie figure.
Staff Flame = Sota Ken with a bit of hotglue to hold it on the staff.

Painted with Games workshop paints and sealed with GW Satin sealant.

I did plan on doing a few more bases but I realised my time could be better spent elsewhere. I know I said Beastman would be next but I'm unsure which one to focus on, Prince Adam, Battlecat or Beastman?
