"At long last, my quest has come to an end."

Samurai Jack is still one of my favorite cartoon shows so I decided to make a custom figure of Jack. I know it's kinda hard to see him out of his 2D features but I wanted him to be able to share the realistic look with my other figures.

I had a SOTA Ryu lying around for a while, not knowing what to do with him for months, then it hit me. Why not a Samurai Jack custom? So first, I made the gi(handsewn- which took me hours...) to see if it feels right. It didn't but I continued with sanding the original hair/headband and sculpted the topknot hair. Now, we're getting somewhere. Luckily I still had Roronoa Zoro's swords that included an unsheathed sword and a sheathed one so that solved the unopening fists of the SOTA figures so I glued the unsheathed sword on his right fist and the sheathed one is there if he's not using the sword[see pics]. The sandals were made out of a popsicle stick that was conveniently the right size for Ryu's feet. The sandal straps were made of leatherette. The belt was made out of garter. Finally, i repainted the whole thing and here he is, Samurai Jack!

That's a very cool way to make a Jack.
It's a very cool take on the character.
Nice work. Very cool.

real awesome man. I love the recipe and use of house hold items. custom of the day.

Thank you! Nowadays, we gotta use whatever's in the house to be practical since I've been low on budget for months. Haha, and I'm very humbled by the "custom of the day" comment. Thanks!

Badazzzzz! I love Samurai Jack! A realistic Aku would be the icing on the cake!
Great custom!

Thank you! A realistic Aku is certainly a challenge with the shape-shifting and all but hopefully I get some ideas soon.

One of my favorite show but for some reason it's very underrated. Thanks for bringing some good old memories back & awesome job on this!
