Hey all
A bit of a change for me here, this guy started as a fodder throw together but soon became an obsession. He's made entirely from fodder pieces I have received from random fodder trades. It's not intended to be accurate, more just my take on wolverine. The base was a bit of a state when I first started and it took a lot to get it cleaned up, soaked in white/mineral spirits for a day then a ton of elbow grease to get the awful paint off. then onto the actual customizing part. I really enjoyed working on Wolvie here and trying out some new methods and techniques. Anyhoo onto the recipe.

Recipe:
Masked Head = ML3 Wolverine - magnet inside.
Unmasked head = AOA Sabertooth - resculpted hair - magnet inside.
Torso = AOA Wolverine - Bolt in neck hole to attract magnets - resculpted neck.
Markings on torso = Foam
Arms = Stealth Wolverine - resculpted lower left and added magnet in left too.
Hands = Stealth Wolverine - magnet in each hand and a screw in the left to attach to the magnet in the arm.
Hand stump = sculpted over a LOTR elf hand with a screw for attaching.
Claws = made from hair pins (bobby pins) with sculpted sheaths.
Upper legs = AOA Wolverine
Lower legs = unknown fodder with extensions made from aves fixit.
Boots = XMC Wolverine, the on that came with a car.
Paints = Games Workshop and Plasticote Projekt paint Chrome for the claws, sealed with Games Workshop Satin Varnish.

As always, thanks to everyone in the custom workstation for their pointers and encouragement. This one has made me want to tackle some other super heroes and it really was a welcome change from MOTU but for now, back to Roboto. Thanks for looking!!

Thanks man, I'll be honest though, the sabes head was pure luck, it was all I had in my fodder box that I thought could work.

Awesome work DT, all the added accessories make it even better
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Thanks mate, I love added extras
Cosmic Fantasy Customs - Sunday, October 9, 2011
really great finish on the fig, love the concepts you put into this. for a fodder custom, epic win. your idea for foam for the details is genius. It does remind me a bit of the ultimate wolverine. so another home run and can't wait for more motu and can't wait to see who else you tackle.
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Cheers Bud, yeah the colour scheme is quite ultimatey?? I use foam all the time, think it was Shinobitron I got the idea from. More work done on Roboto but his legs have been a real pain in the ...
ole jade jaw - Sunday, October 9, 2011
Wow man, This looks great. Nice change (for me anyway). I could never really comment on your stuff before as I can't tell what goes into the motu stuff or what they looked like when you started. (Know the characters but not the toy lines) Anyway, would love to see more that I'm familiar with. (no, not selfish at all)
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 11, 2011
Haha, cheers dude, for now I'm going back to "The Collection" (MOTU) but I do plan on tackling some other Marvel characters along the way, I have all the parts for an Ironman I think will work pretty well, I also wanna tackle the Joker at some point. But like I said for now it's back to my stuff (100% selfish )
Comicustoms - Sunday, October 9, 2011
Nice!
Darththomas - Tuesday, October 11, 2011
