Another Shredder... I have a habit of making these things. This one was part of a set with the Foot ninja, and uses much of the same parts.

TNA Sonjay Dutt base, ML Super-Skrull shins & feet, TNA figure's arms and DCUC Doc Midnite hands. The unmasked Oroku Saki head is a resculpted ML Forge.

The armour was a pain to make, as usual. I first put a base layer of Green Stuff down, which was then cut & sanded to shape. Then I put a layer of Apoxie over that, into which the styrene blades were inset. The helmet is a styrene base sculpted over in a blend of GS/Apoxie. The armour restricts the shoulder articulation somewhat, but on this figure aesthetics were more important that keeping it fully-posable.

Would you consider selling the shredder and foot soldiers? Very impressive
Highmore Studios - Monday, March 24, 2014
Thanks, but I'm afraid I no longer have them - they were commissioned by a big TMNT fan.

That looks awesome! A perfect fit for the NECA TMNT.

Wait, so all of that is just sculpted on? Wow. Do you have a pic of it unpainted?
Highmore Studios - Sunday, July 29, 2012
Yeah, the only parts that weren't sculpted were the upper thighs & biceps. I've got a few WIP photos, but I can only post 3 pictures here - you can see some other pics at my facebook page (just search for Highmore Sutdios)...

You caught a look in the unmasked head that really makes me think of the first issue!
Between the mask and clothes, I again have to say the sculpt work looks amazing! Great job, you couldn't want better TMNT figures!
Highmore Studios - Friday, July 27, 2012
Thanks! The head's based on TMNT #1, specifically the panel where Leo hands Shredder his sword so he can commit seppuku - I've been wanting to use that Forge head for Saki for some time.
