Fin Fang Foom Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:46670  
Name:Fin Fang Foom
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Heroes Assembled Customs  
Date Added:January 30, 2013
Base Figure:Spawn Movie 12" Malebolgia
Height:16.00 inches
FIN FANG FOOM!!

Yet another entry for the infamous 'Giusti Collection' :)

This baby clocks in around 16-17" when fully extended, sports a completely 'from scratch' head sculpt, and fully sculpted body.
Recipe is as follows:

Base: Spawn Movie Malebolgia body
Head: Sculpt
Scales: Sculpt
Wings: Hasbro Annihilus BAF
Tail: Hasbro FFF BAF
Fins: Dc Direct JUSTICE Martian Manhunter clear variant cape
Purple Trunks: Sculpt

**EDIT** Also, the Neck is the piece I'm proudest of. Neck/shoulder joint, and joint at base of the ehad, provided by the Mattel Parallax BAF, and the middle part, sculpted from scratch. Has roughly 180 degrees of rotation on each joint, giving the neck a TON of articulation!

I started this thing back at the end of October, and have been whittling away at it piece by piece between other figures. Almost 4 months, 2.5 lbs of Apoxie sculpt, a whole lot of Citadel paint later, and the long haul is worth it!

**Added in ball joints on the wings to improve posability!**

Enjoy, and please check out my other creations on my Facebook Page:

Outstanding! Digg'n that green! The real prize here is the articulation achieved with the massive amount of sculpting! I absolutely love how the sculpt came out as well! FAN-FOOM'N-TASTIC!

WOW!! Now that is a work of art!! Your sculpting is crazy good! I picked up a few these and the movie Violator myself for some random monsters in my displays. Never would have thought to use Malebolgia for a FFF. Great Job!! Did the knees on yours break? A couple of mine had really weak knees
Heroes Assembled Customs - Thursday, January 31, 2013
The knees have been fine on both my Malebolgia bases, BUT on my Cthulhu figure, one of the elbows popped off. I was able to fix it with a plastic screw (the kind that comes with eyes for plush animals) at the Jo Anne fabric's right next door, and re-paint the head and it was good as new!

If you're interested, check out my Cthulhu figure under my profile here for another Malebolgia base figure. I was thinking of using that base again, but not sure for what....

Sick, very sick work here. Bet you got frustrated at some point with that much sculpting.
Heroes Assembled Customs - Thursday, January 31, 2013
Actually, no! The sculpting wasn't as 'difficult' as it was time consuming, lol...but I have all my DC Universe animated blu rays playing on my mac while I sculpt, so it's perfect for mood setting

the bar is being raised month to month this is the greatest hobby on the planet. one of a kind pieces created out of the imagination of an artist and put into a hand held articulated statue of the heroes and villains we read and watched as kids. this kills model planes and cars welcome to the collectors of the 21 century. sickkkkkkkkkkkk much respect to all the artists. the infamous collection is almost completed lol god bless
NeCrollector - Thursday, January 31, 2013

Wow! This turned out amazing, your hard work really paid off.

Nice Triple F man! I would have driven myself crazy trying to sculpt all those scales in a uniform fashion. Beautiful enduring project my friend!
Heroes Assembled Customs - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
It's actually not as hard as it looks. I made each section as a 'tube' of sorts, tapered at both ends. I placed it where I wanted it to go, and then simply used a flat ended sculpting tool and imprinted the lines, making separate 'cells'. I then used a brush and alcohol to smooth out the lines, and voila. Done.
giusti - Thursday, January 31, 2013
im lost on all that horton but ya what he said is rite flatten it and spread each cell lolllll crazy bro
fitzjedi - Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Lol..thanks
JonMichael - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I would have wrote more, but I don't have the words to describe this masterpiece. Laying eyes upon it reduced me to a drooling, stuttering fool. Only now am I able to correctly form words and sentences, again.
toxinvenom - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Never cared for old Fing Fang Foom, or his name...but your creation here, the sculpt, and painting make this thing come Alive!
Heroes Assembled Customs - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Thanks man!
shapp - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Dude I have been watching the wips of this on the Worlds Greatest Customizers FB page and the title of that group is surely fitting when you see this custom. This is hands down one of my all time favorite and will almost def get my vote of customer of the year for 2013 =p. Wish you could have shown some more pics of the neck, was most excited for that. Please post a crap ton of pics on FB or message me (Wesley Shapp) on FB and send me some pictures of this masterpiece.
Heroes Assembled Customs - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Hey Shapp! There's a TON of pics on my FB page, follow the link above to check them out. There are at least two WIP photo albums!!
