Custom #:52838  
Name:Taarna the Tarakian
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe

Base Figure:Masters Of The Universe Classics Catra
Height:6.00 inches
I'm a huge fan of the 1981 cult classic film, "Heavy Metal" (Metal Hurlant), and I've always wanted to make a custom version of Taarna, however, I never could figure out what figure base I wanted to use. When Masters of The Universe Classics came out, I thought one of the female figures would make a great base, but at the time they were a bit too cost prohibitive for custom fodder purposes. Fast forward and recently Big Lots has been selling the MOTUC line at a heavily discounted price, and that is how I found the base figure (Catra) for this project. The figure is heavily modded, with a great deal of custom sculpting. In fact, this is my first time sculpting female hair from scratch...gotta love the 80's hair! Taarna's sword is a heavily modded Witchblade figure sword. The bases she's on represents the evil Loc-Nar crystal. Coming from an adult animation, hopefully, the figure isn't too racy ...hey, I didn't design her costume!:)

Great! Are you going to do the winged beast she rides on ??
GDX - Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Thanks! Ha! Maybe the nest time around...I don't even know where I'd begin on creating her flying dragon creature...what IS that thing!?

Great idea and great execution. Love that you did the Loc Nar too.

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't think she would complete without it. And how many heroes have a glowing ball as an archnemesis? Easiest custom villain ever

The Taarna segment is probably the best of the film and even though the movie on a whole isn't quite my thing, this is a really beautiful, sexy-lookin' custom you've put together!

Yeah, Taarna's bit to me is the best in the film, IMO, other than the Taxi driver story and the WWII Zombies, the rest is kinda forgettable. Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks a lot! It's cool to hear that. This was my first figure where I did a drastic amount of sculpting. Glad it works!
