Samurai Wolverine Custom Action Figure

Custom #:54700  
Name:Samurai Wolverine
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Heroes Assembled Customs  
Date Added:October 15, 2013
Base Figure:Star Wars Black Darth Maul
Height:6.00 inches
Made from a SWB Darth Maul, with REAL METAL CLAWS and 100% FULLY SCULPTED Samurai Armor, here is Samurai Wolverine!

Logan San comes with 2 pairs of hands, one with extended claws, and one pair to hold his Katana and Wakizashi.

Head is a cast from the Casting Cave, and feet are from a ROML Black Panther. Tassels & Swords are from McFarlane Samurai Wars/Manga Spawn figures, and the dog tags are from a Sota Guile.

The sheaths are made from straws; sanded and painted black, and his belt is cloth; painted and glued in place. His Daisho ('the long and short') are placed in the belt/sash according to how Samurai actually wore their swords, with the large sword's (Katana) curve facing the ground.

I wanted to keep the colors of the armor 'traditional' to the usual earth tones of Samurai armor, while using colors that are also associated with Wolverine.

Each tile/scale was fully sculpted, stitched, and then placed on the figure, as well as the hand/forearm guards (Kote), shoulder plates (Sode), and shin guards (Sune-ate).

The hip guards (Kusazari) that hang from the belt were attached by gluing a piece of ribbon up inside the upper torso of the figure, and then glued onto the ribbon itself. This gives the Kusazari free range of motion, so you can pose Logan-San without fear of the armor breaking off.

The thigh armor (Haidate) were sculpted right onto Darth Maul's robes, also allowing for good posability. The shoulder armor (Sode) were also sculpted plate by plate and glued in place.

Each stitch was rolled out of apoxie and then applied to pre made holes in the tiles.

This was a TON of fun to build, and I'm considering maybe making a Silver Samurai in the same fashion.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy!! Check out the link below for more of my customs on Facebook, and check out the listing on eBay for more pics and purchase info!!

Darn typo or's "giro" NOT "giro"...*sigh*

I know my reply, much like my embracing my inner child, is so long overdue! Having accomplished 5 BS degrees and 2 MS degrees ALL in the sciences with one having a minor in Asian Studies, the "giro" or "honor" you brought to the design and articulate accuracy along with the proper Japanese terms for the armor humbles me! I am just starting out as a customizer and to see someone's caliber of work as yours makes me wish you had apprenticeships! Is it possible if you did your Silver Samurai you could videotape the process? I wanted to do a Silver Samurai and use Polystyrene as parts of its armor. I hope you didn't sell this custom but saved it for your collection as it is the worthiest piece I've ever seen! A devoted fan and eternal student! Love to stay in touch, cbclark at outlook dot com.

Unfortunately, I did sell this figure, but I'm fine with that. The figure itself isn't the end goal for me, it's the journey in creating it. The process is the reward, and having photos of the figure is enough for me. As far as the money I receive when I sell my work, it allows me to continue making more figures, and continuing my journey as an artist. Also, knowing that someone owns my work, and it brings them happiness is it's own reward.

As far as Silver Samurai, I have not started him yet, as I am inundated with commissions at the moment, and I'm still putting together the formula for making him. I will probably not use styrene or any prefab material for his armor, however. I will probably sculpt it piece by piece as I did with Logan here, to keep a continuity of design between the two figures.

Thanks for looking, and I really appreciate the compliments and feedback!

Fantastic, great sculpt work!
Heroes Assembled Customs - Thursday, October 24, 2013
I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words, and all the votes! I know some people are upset that a 'non ninja' won the contest, but the rules clearly stated that Samurai were allowed as well, and I was already working on a Samurai Wolverine figure idea, so I went full steam ahead. I thought that even if he didn't win, I'd still have a blast making his armor as close as possible to traditional Samurai armor as I could, so even if it didn't place, I'd be happy.

I also knew there would be a lot of ninja entered, and I didn't want to run the risk of doing something someone else was doing, so I took a chance and tried to go a little outside the box. Sometimes, skirting the edge of what people expect of you is the best approach, and that's what I tried to do here.

And CLEARLY a bunch of you liked it enough to vote, so thank you again to everyone!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for my first FIGURE REALM CONTEST WIN!! WOOHOO!!
