Kenner style Panther Alien by Jin-Saotome
Kenner style Panther Alien
The Aliens are back and they're taking over all sorts of life forms. This week I bring you a Panther Alien specially created for your 7" NECA figure collection. Panther was created from the NECA Dog aka Runner Alien body with shortened limbs and sculpted shoulders, hips, crest, and back. Hands and feet from different Aliens Resurrection Aliens were used and given joints. Panther Alien even has his little back parasite! The entire figure was airbrushed from head to toe using gold and copper highlights to mimic the look of the vintage figure while still maintaining a ton of sculptural detail. More Aliens to follow so keep an eye out!

BionicCommando2016 007 by Jin-Saotome
BionicCommando2016 007

Jumping, well rather swinging his way into the Marvel Legends series comes the one and only NES Bionic Commando! Styled directly after the original sprite this grappling hero is packed with all sorts of features. Ladd Spencer features a removable grappler line, claw tip, as well as a magnetic tip that allows him to hang from metal surfaces. He was created from a Star Wars Black 6" Resistance Trooper, Walgreens Daredevil alt head, Nick Fury boots, and various fodder parts as well as sculpted detail. He can swing from the tower on the custom made Bionic Comamndo level base! A custom made blaster/backpack round out his weaponry and he even comes with a radio. Now Ladd is ready to grapple anywhere and accomplish his missions.

Custom Boba Fett 6 inch Black Series Figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom Boba Fett 6 inch Black Series Figure

Your favorite Mandalorian bounty hunter returns, it's Boba Fett customized as he was seen in the Return of the Jedi Star Wars movie. Here I took a basic 6" Boba Fett and gave him a complete repaint job down to the tiny scuffs and scratches on his armor. A new belt, gear, and braided wookie scalps were added to up the detail along with a flamethrower blast that can be attached to his gauntlet. The placement of his pouches fixes the range of leg motion and now Fett can hunt down any figure in your collection and look amazing doing so.

Custom vintage Toybiz style Batman figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom vintage Toybiz style Batman figure
A blast from the past, the 1989 Batman movie figures from Toybiz were top notch back then. Here I've brought you an updated version of the classic zip-line-belt figure you owned as a child. This custom Toybiz Vintage style 6" scale Batman figure was created from the head/cowl/feet/armor/hands of a NES Batman, DC Collectibles Nightwing body, and DCU cape. A grappling belt was created from Dr Octopus claws and made so it can attach to the front of the larger zip-gun that the old figure had. The head was separated from the cowl and resculpted with a dual ball joint so Batman can look in any direction. One matte/gloss paint job later and you have an updated figure from your childhood! Now to get on making a new Bob the Goon...

Facebook l Toy Review Blog l Twitter l Website l Customs for sale l Guides l Gallery

Hey, woah, I should probably update my journal more often! Just got back from
the Nashville Comic-Con and had a blast! I'm hoping to get a booth there next
year. If that works out you all can drop by and watch me work, I'll have tables
set up where myself and others will be customizing on-site. There's not a ton
more I have to update in the Journal here other than asking you to check out
my most recent deviations to see the newest customs I've created and head
on over to my website www.jinsaotomesdangeroustoys.c… for other
goodies like guides, tutorials, and product links!

Some of your figures are inspiring based on how they are built, others are inspiring based on what is being displayed, and others are inspiring based on the visual means of conveyance(in other words the "how this person did it" of the art, instead of the "what this person is conveying to you" or "how the figure is engineered and laid out" if that makes sense).

Thank you very much for sharing your creations with us.

Hello love your work. I especially love your original Lantern characters. I'd love to see you make more for some of the other lantern corps, like a human Orange Lantern, or something of the like. :D
