Triffid Plant Monster Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:47008  
Name:Triffid Plant Monster
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman
Creator:jmao  
Date Added:February 10, 2013
Base Figure:SMC Mac Gargan Venom Stinger
Height:7.25 inches
Was planning on doing this for a while, then came the contest and it became the perfect excuse to get it done.
I used a Spider-Man Classics Mac Gargan Venom Stinger/Tail for the main body. I made the head completely out of apoxie sculpt except for the hinge (so it can open and close) which is the knee from a DC Universe figure. The teeth are made from tooth picks.
The dirt base is from a WWE figure base, which i drilled through to plug the stinger into then used apoxie to sculpt the texture. All the leaves and flowers I got from Michaels as well as the detachable tongue, which is held on via magnet.
For the paint I used Tamiya and Testors acrylics.

Hope you guys like it.

Congratulations brother! Indeed a top-tier piece and deserving to rank even higher.
Great job!

Soooo innovative! I'd have given you 4 stars on concept alone, but you really went the extra mile with the toothpick teeth and all.

Never has a voting been more difficult. So many outstanding customs this time and there are at least 5 Top favourites for my taste. This one here is also something that I would like to have in an Poison Ivy diorama. I like what relatively easy basic parts You turned in something so familliar looking and yet so absolutely well done in style and articulation. Pretty genius and that´s why You deserve the 5 points.

That's by far the best custom I've ever seen of a Venus Flytrap style monster; very impressive! This would make a great accessory/pack-in for a DC Poison Ivy figure as well.
