Seraphim Angel Ha Shomer Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42154

Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:My Heroes

Height:7.00 inches
At the suggestion of firefly, I was able to scrounge a few more sets of wings.
Firefly had suggested that I try the 6 and 4 winged angels known as the Seraphim and Cheribim respectively.
Today I present my take on the Seraphim.
Seraphim means burning ones, so I tried to convey flame through multiple layers of different dry brush colors, after which I gave the wings my traditional gold wash.
The body is a Marvel Select Thor.
The head is a Marvel Legends Colossus.
The top set of wings, (with the bend) comes from an old school X-Men first class Angel figure.
Next set of wings,(pointing up) came from a Marvel Legends Archangel.
Bottom set of wings, (pointing down)comes from a classic X-Men Archagel.
Knee pads are from a Marvel Legends Lord of Asgard Thor.
I through a Masters of the universe sword in there because it looked like he needed one.

The Seraphim are the angels that are the caretakers of God's throne room.

As of yet, I have no name for this angel, so I am hoping for some GOOD suggestions from my fellow realmers.

I have enough wings to do one of the Cherubim, and then maybe a female, then I'm out of wings again.
This has been by far my most expensive angel to date, but worth every penny.

Thanks to everyone for looking, and thanks again to firefly for the suggestion.
Blessings to you all!

P.S. After speaking with a Hebrew Professor, I decided to go with Ha-Shomer which is Hebrew for The Guardian.

I think this' your best one yet! I didn't know you were still building your army. I got one question if you don't mind. How did you do the six wings because I plan on one day (hopefully) to do a SF3 Gill custom? Thanks and nice work bro.
Emmett - Monday, August 27, 2012
It depends on how heavy the wings are.
Sometimes I can get away with just Hot glue.
Otherwise I will trow a couple of screws in with the glue for strength.

Hey brother! It's so good to see a new angel custom from you! I was really hoping you would create some new ones soon.
Well, it was worth the wait!!!
This is one gorgeous work-of-art, brother!!!
How about the name:
Metatron (or Mattatron)?
I dig some digging and found this name from an archangel in Judaism. He's Enoch, ancestor of Noah. Pretty cool!
Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
I like it! Let me look into it a bit, but we may have a winner!
NeCrollector - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Love the name Ha-Shomer! I think it's perfect for this awesome Seraphim.
Bakegirl - Sunday, August 26, 2012
What a beautiful work of art to wake up to! Greatness exemplified!!
Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Thank you so much for the compliment.
Automatauntaun - Sunday, August 26, 2012

Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
I is painted similar to the front, but you can see the screws that I used to hold the wings on with. LOL!
Holy_Ghostbuster - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Thats pretty darn impressive man, nice work.
Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Thank you! I was very nervous in making this one.

Hexprus/Hexpris. I started thinking of hex, as in six and then thought of comething that sounded pretty cool with that. It's not too deep, but I think it sounds pretty good.
Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Very cool suggestion.

Did a bit of research to come up with my suggestion...you say the Seraphims are caretakers of God's throne room...in my mind that would make this guy a guardian...and according to the info I found the Hebrew word for guardian is "Magen". Seems like a good name.
Emmett - Sunday, August 26, 2012
Thanks for the suggestion, but Magen is feminine Hebrew for guardian.
