Base Figure:DCUC Batman
Height:7.00 inches
Hey all, back again with yet another He-man. I promise this will be my final standard version of He-man (might do a concept or two down the road, you never know). So I did really like my V2 but the problem was he just wasn't to scale with all my other DCUC / MOTU customs so V3 was necessary. Anyhoo, here's the recipe.

Base = DCUC Batman - cracked torso and upper legs and sanded down to prevent paint rub, painted all these areas then glue shielded them. Also sanded down the shoulder discs, painted and shielded then reassembled. Sculpted in the gap left by removing the cloak.

Head = 200x He-man - dremmel to fit.

Lower Arms and hands = DCUC Killer Moth.

Bracelets = 200x He-man - dremmeled hollow then slid onto killer moth arms.

Loin Cloth = 200x He-man

Lower legs and feet = DCUC Dr.Midnite - sculpted bindings and fur at the tops. Made legs a bit longer using a screw and some milliput.

Weapons = 200x He-man

Painted with Citadel paints and sealed with Loctite brush on superglue and citadel satin Purity seal.

Being as this is another He-man I decided to throw in a group shot of my Masters to date just so you can see how the project is coming along. Hope you enjoy my final He-man offering but fear not still loads more MOTU coming up. Next up is Teela.

Even after extensively studing your tutorials on skin tones I still can't get my figures to look like this. Your skills are amazing and this He-man ROCKS!!!
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011

Amazing! You truely deserve every bit of credit as the standard in MOTU customs. You have set the bar for MOTU customs!
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks very much bud, I hope to continually raise that bar and If my plans come off right I might just manage that
RedRebelCustoms - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Hmm...sounds as though you've got some big plans ahead! Can't wait to see them come to fruition!

I'm sure I've said it before but anywhoo....YOU ARE THE MOTU KING and love seeing your work, also the group shot just proves why you wear the crown
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks mate, I hope I can not only continue to be worthy of the crown but I'll strive to protect that crown from those that wish to take it from me

What can I say, everybody's said it for me.
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks man
bobtheodd - Thursday, November 24, 2011
I'm sure you know what I'll say, but I'll say it anyway.....He's awesome!
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Always a pleasure buddy, cheers Ps. I still prefer the one you have

Looks awesome man. What brand of superglue do you use to brush over the body? Every brand I've tried leave white residue even in very thin layers.
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Cheers bud, the superglue I use is Loctite easy brush. It comes with its own little brush attached to the lid and I have never experienced any of the clouding you're talking about with it. I only brush it on certain areas though, shoulder ball and socket, ab crunch, elbows and knees. Also on the raised parts of his "armour".

WOW. Another DarthThomas81 classic! I have found your recent work to be truly inspiring. Thanks for motivating me to work harder in trying to reach that next level! Also your photography here is beautiful and I'm loving the group shot!
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks mate, you've been pumping out some pretty impressive and diverse stuff yourself, keep striving man, I know I will. As for the photography it's all about the natural light, to me there's just no substitute.

Not a MOTU fan. With that being said, I can only say:
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks man, it always makes it a little better to get a great comment from someone who isn't a massive fan of the genre.
Cosmic Fantasy Customs - Thursday, November 24, 2011
man this is another masterpiece and along with the group, epic beyond belief. you captured them perfectly and are a true MOTU master.
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks good buddy, I can't wait to present the final group shot, probably take at least another year but I know it will be worth it in the end
pulpyfiction - Thursday, November 24, 2011
Wicked group shot DT! As for this He-Man individually, this is some of your best skin tone work for sure, like you've been building up to this. Great work for sure!
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Haha, thanks buddy, I haven't been building up intentionally but I do agree, I think this has come out the best yet. Hope you enjoyed / enjoy / enjoying England.

Just Fantastic!! I agree with rascal, the flesh tone and shading look great.
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
Thanks very much mate
rascal - Thursday, November 24, 2011
Holy cow! Flawless! The skin tone is a beauty.
Darththomas - Saturday, November 26, 2011
