Gaiking Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:40820  
Name:Gaiking
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Soul of Chogokin
Creator:fastfreddie  
Date Added:July 13, 2012
Base Figure:scraps
Height:16.00 inches
Completion Time:6.00 hours
I got up one morning and had the idea(thank you Lord) to make a huge battle damaged trophy for my Great Mazinga. I figured Gaiking would work good, since when I was a kid, my Mazinga was a sparring partner to my friends' GAIKING's (3 of my friends had Gaikings!)and they all 3 insisted Gaiking was the more powerful Shogun Warrior!

Recipe: balled up newspaper wrapped in duck tape
cardboard
wire mesh
aluminum tape
some lego parts
craft foam heated up and burnt to look like damage
primed in a high gloss back
painted and sealed

stands 16 inches tall and 20 inches wide

Glory to GOD!
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom

Great work, this is a great base or diorama piece any fan of the show or just figure buff's alike can enjoy for how cool it is! Great battle damage, and wicked paints. You really know this stuff well, and you make it look easy because of your consistency, as we all know it's not! Cool work!

Fantastic work FF, tho I'm not familiar with the back storys of the characters I do remember them when I was a kid and always thought they were cool looking, love how you put this together

That's an awesome way to show Mazinga's superiority bro .
I never liked Gaiking. So, from a fellow fan... Mazinger-Z rules !!!

That makes 2 of us! My only problem was when I was a kid they translated Mazinger-Z in a U.S. series called Tranzor-Z... I hated the name change...stupid

psychokillah1777 - They are I think but this was based off a childhood fantasy as I said, my friends all had Gaikings and I had the Great Mazinga and they would gang up on my Shogun Warrior

Hammer of the Gods - I DO TOO! I LOVE SHOGUNS! 11 is a mighty big collection of them!!! I just have my one repainted Great Mazinga and the Uni-five reissue from '98 that had the big red wings and a Uni-five Gaiking also

TheRealSupaMan - well part of a Gaiking anyways!

NeCrollector - yessir!

Countpichula - thank you!

lanshark1 - he's a Shogun Warrior from the American late 70's but even more history in Japan before that

This is awesome! I wish I could post pics in the thread to show off my Shogun collection. I have 11 of the 24 inchers on display in my toy room.

I didn't even understand half the words in the description. (is that another language?!?) But nobody can debate how cool this looks.
