Well,quite surprised to get this one finished today but got a real rush of motivation so here he is, Mumm-Ra the everliving from the new Warner Brothers cartoon.
Now some of you may know I had issues with Bandai's Lion-O figure, well the issues were ten time worse with Mumm-Ra, he was just so weak looking to me, short stumpy legs and a barrel chest, lack of articulation and the usual black joints. What's worse is Bandai actually call this the "Collectors line". Anyhoo, that's enough of that, i needed a big bad and imposing Mumm-Ra so I set to work. Here's the recipe:
Helmet and head = Bandai Mumm-Ra - dremmel to fit neck joint.
Bandages on head = white - LOTR lady elf skirt, sanded down, dipped in boiling water bent to shape then straight in cold.
Red - DCSH Supergirl cloak strips, sanded down.
Torso = ML Beta Ray Bill - sanded down discs, completely resculpted to include the chest symbol of Bandai Mumm-ra. Neck bandages sculpted. Magnet embedded in abs to attach to the lower half.
Shoulder sockets = Sinister 6 Venom - securely attached to torso with quick steel and sculpted over.
Shoulder balls and upper arms = sinister 6 Venom.
Lower arms = Sinister 6 Venom with Bandai Mumm-ra pegs attached and sculpted over, sculpted bandages.
Wrist guards and hands = Bandai Mumm-ra.
Skirt armour = Bandai Mumm-Ra.
Crotch, upper legs and knees = Sinister 6 Venom - Magnets embedded to attach to the top half.
Shin armour and feet = Bandai Mumm-ra.
Claw Shield = Bandai Mumm-ra - ripped off spider leg things and attach magnets so it's removable.
Swords = Bandai Mumm-ra.
Painted with Citadel and sealed with superglue, citadel satin purity seal and Vallejo satin varnish.
Tons of fun with this guy and only a few headaches. Think that's definitely it for the cats now ( at least till Tygra and Cheetarah hit over here) got to get back to the many MOTU sitting in my WIP graveyard. Hope you all enjoy and thanks for taking a glance. Bye for now.....
Thanks to Goldenwolf got the wings i needed to make Mumm-Ra like I wanted in the first place. They're from a The Legend of Dragon figure, cut off, glued onto Mumm-Ra after a lot of sanding to fit, then sculpt to blend, the usual coat of GW paints and Vallejo satin finished him off.
