Hey everyone. So I'm back with another Mortal Kombat character, this time it's the one and only Goro!!!

Had alot of fun making this guy and cannot wait until my buddy see's what I have in store for him. Personally I think this might be my finest custom yet! I have been inspired by so many Customizers on here (Loose collector, Fast Freddie, Ring of Mendoza...too name a few) that keep me trying to better myself, so I say thanks to them and to one other person. The guy (forgot his name) but the guy who made the Skin painting technique tutorial. It's fantastic!

Anyways so here goes the Recipe. I started off with a Validus BAF, he's got the size and the correct fingers and toes to start off with so thought it was a smart choice. Replace the head with a Marvel Legends Hulk (earlier Series). Extra arms are from a World War Hulk. Pony tail is from an AOA Sabertooth. Sculpt work, well had to resculpt the face and the head, resculpted the hands on the extra arms. Resculpted the the feat. Sculpted the belt and the "buckle" as well. I also had to sculpt the wraps around the feet. So to attach the extra arms was actually easier than I imagined. Just drill some holes on the sides where I wanted the arms. Modified the pegs that were attached to the arms, heated them up to soften them up a bit and just inserted them. They are a perfect fit, not loose or tight. They move perfect! Added a Goro paint job and there you have it. Like I said I had alot of fun making this guy and look foward to you comments. Thanks for looking and thanks for any comments!

Looks sick man, paint apps are amazing

Really great, and love the paintwork. Great use of the Hulk head. that looks awesome. Really sweet fig. May have liked to see the lower arms have the shoulder balls sunken into the body a bit more, they look a little tacked on, but overall the look of the figure is really great. nice job.

Wow, great job. First, assembling him, then sculpting, and lastly, great painting on the skin tones. A fine job overall. Oh, Btw, thanks for mentioninig me-well I think you meant me- cheers, buddy!

Thanks much Mendoza and yes I did mean you! Sorry about misspelling your name.

THIS IS BEYOND SPECTACULAR! I really love this base body you used(I haven't saw that one before!) This is a magnificent custom creation and anytime someone can craft a figure with the additional extremities it's a real feat of custom engineering which goes way beyond mere repaints and catapults the custom creator into the stratosphere of the upper echelon of figure customizers who clearly put a lot of love and devotion into the hobby. thanks for the shout out too!
