Panthro - Walking Weapon Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:35030  
Name:Panthro - Walking Weapon
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Thundercats
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:December 13, 2011
Base Figure:Savage Grey Hulk
Height:7.50 inches
Well I've been wanting to try out the new Thundercats design for quite a while now and this competition gave me the perfect motivation to get at least one done. I decided to start with my favourite cat, Panthro. I love the new design for him (wasn't too sure about the hair at first but it's grown on me) but I knew parts would be challenging. I decided to not go for a straight up accurate representation, so this is the new Panthro with a couple of my own ideas added in there. Most noticeable is probably the blue pants, two reasons for that. One, I think it ties him in with the classic cats better and two, less work which was a massive bonus because I didn't start this one till two weeks ago. Anyhow, that's enough of my rambling, here's the recipe.

Recipe:
Head = TBML Rhino, tons of sanding and re-sculpting. Sanded down mask and massive nostrils then completely sculpted the face except for the eyes. Dremmelled head to fit neck joint.

Torso = HML Savage grey Hulk, Sculpted Scar and vest, the spikes are screws, screwed into the body the sculpted over.

Arms = HML Savage grey Hulk, Sculpted gloves, armour, fingernails and scars on shoulders. Spikes are screws again very securely fitted and sculpted over. Foam for the straps.

Lower torso and crotch = HML Savage grey Hulk, sculpted top of his trousers.

Belt = Foam sheet, earphone wire and some random jewels. His symbol is reversible and is made from a random piece of jewellery. It is held on by a magnet behind the earpiece of an earphone.

Legs = TBML 1st Appearance Hulk grey, completely sculpted pants down to top of boots. Sculpted bottom of legs, armour and toenails. Screws sculpted over for the spikes again. Foam for the straps.

Painted with Games Workshop paints and sealed with superglue and Games workshop satin purity seal.

I Know he doesn't have his chucks and I did plan on doing some but as he was coming together I kinda decided this guy don't need no weapon.....he IS the weapon hence the name Panthro The Walking Weapon!!

Thanks for taking the time to have a glance and for voting, hope you all enjoy the contest and good luck everyone.

HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

loved it you did such a fantastic job, I never watched the original cartoon and my basis is the new version and you captured him perfectly. All I have to say is this was one of my favs, I could have seen this contest having ties for medals. one of the best contests in the last bit.

Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Cheers Boskoes, look forward to the rest of your new cats!!

Interesting custom, I saw all the entries and there isn't any classic Panthro bald style.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
True, I've already done 2 classic Panthros but he is my fave so I had to do the new one.
PAINTcustoms - Saturday, December 17, 2011
its a great figure! but what I like most about this is how you used a hasbro hulk and a toybiz 1st app hulk. did you just glue/epoxy the upper hasbro half to the boybiz bottom? the hasbro legs were terrible, this looks nice.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Thanks man and it's really quite a simple swap, the Toybiz pegs fit perfectly in the Hasbro crotch holes. I had to grind down the sockets on the Hasbro part but it was pretty easy really.
Patraw - Saturday, December 17, 2011
Excellent work, particularly on the greaves/gauntlets, that's one impressive and intimidating Panthro. I feel not including his trademark weapon was a mistake though, as that's a big part of the character in my opinion.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Yeah, time constraints once again halted the weapons, that and the fact they would have had to be massive to not look like chop sticks in his hands. After watching more of the new series though I gotta say, Panthro really doesn't use his chucks all that often, it seems he only uses them in dire situations. Thanks for being honest in you crits as always buddy.
Bob-A-Ferret - Saturday, December 17, 2011
This is not my Panthro aka classic Panthro but he is certainly a perfect representation of the current Panthro 5 stars bro great work there is a lot of stiff competition this contest. glad I was too busy to enter.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Yeah mine neither but I really wanted to give the new cats a crack, I kinda like the designs but the classic cats will always be number 1 in my eyes too. As for the competition.........daaaayuum you're dead right, so many great entries!!
NeCrollector - Friday, December 16, 2011
Excellent Panthro!
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Thankyou muchly!!
ZoltanMotherwell - Friday, December 16, 2011
Like it a lot, but I think you should have gone with black legs/pants.. blue reminds me to much of jeans...
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Yeah I do agree, but like I said I started this with only two weeks to go so I decided leaving them blue would be easier and quicker. It meant I didn't have to sand down the discs in the legs, saving vital time. Thanks for the honest criticism mate.
massprime - Friday, December 16, 2011
You've really captured that animated feel!
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Thanks man, mission accomplished
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, December 16, 2011
Great sculpts. The reversible buckle is ingenius.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Cheers bud, the buckle was a last minute addition, I just had to have the "power up" feature
Bushinryus40th - Friday, December 16, 2011
