Custom #:43282  
Name:Dark X-Men Daken
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends

Date Added:October 3, 2012
Base Figure:Red Tornado
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:10.00 hours
Articulation:23 points
This figure was taken from a DCUC Red Tornado base. The unmasked head was created using a Lex Luthor noggin' which had a few slight tweaks to his cheekbones and obvious hair sculpted on top of his head. The mask head was basically a completely new sculpt over the original face which was sanded down to nothing, so yes, even the mouth/jaw area on the masked head is sculpted. The gloves were probably the hardest part of the figure as they required sculpting that needed to sync up with the articulation. Beyond that, the shoulder pads, belt, and calve muscles were sculpted on as well.
The claws were made from a few sewing needles that I heated up and bent a little before covering them up with some Aves Apoxie sculpt which I then painted black to better represent the bone claws that Daken actually showcases in the majority of his appearances. The 3rd claw was made in the same fashion but I made them removable as I drilled small holes in the figures wrists so that I could insert the middle claws without hampering the articulation. Finally the figure was painted head to toe.
