Ronin Lion-O Custom Statue / Bust

 
 
Custom #:35126  
Name:Ronin Lion-O
Custom Type:Statue / Bust
Toy Series:Thundercats
Creator:G Brand  
Date Added:December 15, 2011
Base Figure:Wire Armature/ 95% Sculpted
Height:6.50 inches
Ronin Lion-O. The lone swordsman that wanders the land battling minions, in search of revenge against Lord Mum-Ra for the murder of his father.

That's enough back story, I think. This guy began life as a wire armature and was then completely sculpted using sculpey and aves. Savage Dragon head cast, Bishop left hand and Dollar store ninja right hand were the only pieces added to round out this figure. Thought it would be fitting if the Sword of Omens was a Katana.

Hope you dig, God Bless.

I Love this. Again, your ambition with the level of original sculpting is awesome, and very well done! The anatomy is great and the concept is very, very cool. You, my friend, are an excellent artist and you have a new fan!

looks like I got another favorite customizer! I'd love to make a super-poseable figure based on your design!

Hey go for it! I know it would turn out amazing. I'm an admirer of your work as well.

...Congrats Man !!!... I saw the original concept art yesterday and have to say the match is excellent for this figure!!!... I´m very glad you are now in "the dark side of the force" , with this "staction" figure custom in a world of the "50" articulation points figures ... !!!
G Brand - Tuesday, December 27, 2011
Yes indeed brother! I think this is actually my third static figure but my first with human musculature and such. I plan on making plenty more too. Thanks.

Niiiice! The curved katana of Omens is awesome, the whole design of the figure is great! Wish there was a set of these now...
G Brand - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Hmmmmm....there might be. Thanks man.
Darththomas - Saturday, December 24, 2011
No surprises here then, I knew we had a winner here as soon as it came through. I don't think the lack of articulation is a problem at all. This came from nothing and is a true masterpiece, besides we all know G-brand can do articulation but only if HE wants too.
G Brand - Saturday, December 24, 2011
Ha! Thanks, and don't worry, I plan on doing many more static figures in the future. This is only the beginning.

congrats!

Congratulations man! Awesome high level of work here...
G Brand - Friday, December 23, 2011
Thanks very much for the support everyone. This figure is based off of the concept by Jeffrey Thomas (the same guy that designed the feudal turtles). I made it as a static figure b/c I wanted to keep it true to the original art work. It was also a challenge to myself to build a figure from scratch with this level of detail. I'm glad you guys liked it (except for the lack of articulation ) and we'll see what's next.

I like the statue types and it is a figure in an action pose...so it is an action figure! I love this and for you to sculpt it from scratch shows your true skill levels are beyond the league of mere parts swapping and paint apps. Great job G Brand!

Long-time Lurker to the Realm. Finally had to sign up & vote 5 stars for this awesome Figure! Excellent work!!!

This one puts every factory-made Lion-O figure to shame! Sooo clean!
ZoltanMotherwell - Monday, December 19, 2011
Like this take on Lion-O! An Afro-Samurai/Alex from Madagascar hybrid?! I kid ofcourse.. I would have gone with sideburns instead of a goatee.. Anyhoo, nice work!
toxinvenom - Sunday, December 18, 2011
This looks very good, seriously his claw and face and flesh are superb...my only problem with it is it can't move, I wish it had articulation that would have topped it off, it's like a statue...but it looks great!
NeCrollector - Saturday, December 17, 2011
This is one awesome custom of Lion-O!
firefly - Saturday, December 17, 2011
its amazing!( aerosmith playing in the background)
PANZERVARGAS - Friday, December 16, 2011
...He looks like other character from Thundercats, not Lion-o, but I really like this figure and the work on him!!!...Excellent work!!!
dreamcatcher - Friday, December 16, 2011
This is the best Lion-o because the concept it's very original, I never saw this before, this is amazing and excellent, looks factory made, congrats, kudos.
captainsnikt - Friday, December 16, 2011
Nice use of the savage dragon head
Shinigami - Friday, December 16, 2011
Completely sculpted? So not only the concept is great, your skills are superb.
Patraw - Friday, December 16, 2011
This looks an awful lot like Genjuro Kibagami from SNK's Samurai Shodown/Spirits fighting game series to me.

Anyway, reimaging Lion-O as a Japanese swordsman is a pretty neat and creative idea; good job!
DR.EVIL - Friday, December 16, 2011
Thats what I'm about to comment too.. Lookin for articulations just like ALmost all of the entries..
Darththomas - Friday, December 16, 2011
Amazing man!!, and to say this is sculpted from scratch around a wire armature makes it even more so!!
