Hi everyone..I wasn't planning on doing another figure from this game,but when great customizer NeCro mentioned that he would like to see me tackle on alien/creatures customs like Geldra leader Maboo,I couldn't resist that the following day I was motivated to start working on this alien looking Leader from the organization whose face pops up on the big computer screen when its "game over". Well I started with Sota Remy base(both Maboo & Agent Albatross have similar lanky build)then removed remy bell bottoms and shoe and put ML Wonderman boots in its place.Next I sculpted hanging sleeves and buttons.For his hands I used DCUC Gemm because they have characteristics of aliens hands.Then I sanded down Remy waist and wrapped around part of ML Dr.Strange Cape to give it a flowing effect.Now for the head I had a ML Wolverine/Logan head in my fodder bin forever.I never used it before because his face just looked creepy weird,but I felt this would be the perfect head for Maboo for its weirdness. Did a sand down on hair,then sculpted a alien shape type head,brow and pointy ears.Finally applied three different layers of green & blue for skintone and robe.Painted boots & pants a metallic red and dark silver patina color & he was done.
Hope you like.Thanks again NeCro for motivation on trying different type of customs and adding another rare character to the vintage games list

WOW!!!! I just knew you would SLAM it brother!!! And SLAMMED it beautifully, you sure did!!! I am honored that you mentioned me in your description, bro...thank you so much! What a treat it is to see this evil alien masterpiece so perfectly executed!
I sincerely hope to see more alien-like/monster-like customs from you in the future, my friend. They're always fun to see (and even funner to customize)

Looks great just like in the NES game when he looked spooky. In the Genesis sequels he looks just like Piccolo from DBZ except with a monocle instead.
VicVeinz - Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Thanks Kirky read my mind..I was going for a anime type look just like DBZ Piccolo& Voltron King Zarkon & his army of creatures.
