Sabretooth Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:6748  
Name:Sabretooth
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men

Base Figure:Marvel Legends Showdown Venom
Height:4.75 inches
I originally envisioned this custom about 2 years ago. I really liked the Marvel Legends Showdown series of figures (didn't care for the game mind you). In my opinion, some of the MLS series figures were far better than their ML counterparts. Anyways, I had hoped they would release a Sabretooth to go with this line...there were not many villains released and Sabes is probably my favorite villain. Sadly, the series was discontinued and the figures that were released were very hard to find. I knew that I wanted to make a Sabretooth and I thought the Venom figure might be the right base for it, but I had not seen any in stores. So after much waiting in vain for one to show up at retail, I opted to buy one online for an exorbitant price. I went through many trials and errors on this custom, this is my first full paint job on a custom, so I learned a lot on this one. After several near disastrous attempts, I have finally finished this and "ALMOST" couldn't be happier with the results. In a twist of irony, the head is actually Sabe's arch-enemy Logan (Unmasked Wolverine Variant). A little Fixit sculpt was used for the hair and fur mantle, and I used the ends of toothpicks for his claws. Anyways, here it is!


"Happy Birthday Kiddo"

The detail you've put into this is phenominal! I too thought it was the 6 inch scale. Awesome!
