Raiden Custom Action Figure

Custom #:64279  
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Mortal Kombat
Date Added:August 3, 2014
Base Figure:WWE John Cena (torso arms & head) and Arkham Ra's Al Ghul legs
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:20.00 hours
Articulation:11 points
Took the Arkham Ra's Al Ghul and separated the legs and attached the John Cena upper half. Used Fixit sculpt for the collar, tie, arm and tunic patches and shin and forearm guards. Used colored foam sheet for the tunic and loincloth, then painted the trim with Tamiya black. Painted the figure with Tamiya white for the clothes, flat aluminum and gold leaf and semi gloss black for the shin and forearm guards. The headgear was made with foam sheet glued together and then I applied strips of paper to give it a bamboo look. Not my best effort but I had fun making him. Wifey really liked it, which came as a shock because she is not at all familiar with the character.

Raiden looks FLAWLESS! The caption with Thor is hilarious!

I was shocked when I saw this custom. 'Shocked', get it, funny , yeah, no, hmmm. Great effort using the worlds finest bases. Welcome to the brotherhood of sweaty, muscular, speedo wearing customizing . I must ask you, what crazy, out of this world, futuristic technology did you employ to levitate your creation. Also, did the lightning strikes ruin the paintwork? It must have nearly destroyed you when the storm came over and chose to unleash its' fury directly at your creation. My condolences. May I suggest limiting your photo shoots to indoor locations during the storm season. Your friend , nino.

First off, thank you for the accolades, they are quite electric. I agree that WWF/WWE figures are among the best for our craft, no doubt. However, this is not my first venture into wrestling action figure customs, see my Conan and Belit, as well as my Thorunn customs. As for the the technology, well lets just say I strung the Victim up for a bit (you can't see the strings, serious?), Do you mean Raiden? I just held him with my hand out of camera range while my son snapped the picture. Pretty high tech stuff for a humble young man like myself. Anyhoo, the storm blew over quickly and recovery efforts are in full force. Hope to hear from you again real soon.

Your Compadre in Customization,

Thanks. It's called Photo Editor by Aviary. You can find it in the App Store on your Apple device.

Lol. Lmao. Mano, this is an awesome custom of another God of Thunder. Raiden. Im sure him and Thor are gonna be homies from here on out. Great pics, that last one really made me laugh, you have no idea. The people here at the restaraunt are probably thinking, pues que tiene este vato. Great work carnal, se mira chido.

Thanks bro, you know I have to get my Thunder God Locos to represent. Glad you liked my little humor shot. Laughter is what keeps us young and happy and I'm glad I was able to impart some of that in your day.
