Custom MOTUC character King Multarmo by Jin-Saotome
Custom MOTUC character King Multarmo

The powerful King Multarmo rules the Root Jungle deep below the forests of Eternia. There he swings from dangling roots and keeps watch high above the surface skirmishes until his aid is needed. Multarmo was created using two MOTUC Stratos body and arms, Moss Man head, hands, feet, and Mer-Man armor. The extra arms are fully functional and hinged at the ab-joint allowing for complete range of motion. King Mulatarmo can wield his powerful club or bone dagger as he swings into battle against whatever foe threatens Subternia!

[Creating a four-armed MOTUC is fairly easy using this design. First crack open the lower ab crunch, then the upper chest so you can remove the plastic bar that runs through them. Without any extra modification glue the lower abs together around the shoulder pegs. Carefully carve holes into the upper chest and snap that over the abs. The shoulder peg of the extra arms is now your ab crunch hinge and the arms retail their full articulation!]

Custom MOTUC Terra-Bull action figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom MOTUC Terra-Bull action figure
Eternia has seen its share of tyrants but deep below dwells a being so dangerous, so ruthless, he can only be called...Terra-Bull! Twisted brother of Terra-Starr, this villain has plans for Subternia's Crystal Core and only the combined might of the heroes above and below can stop him! Terra-Bull was created using a Hydron Body, Space Skeletor legs, Crysis figure hooves, King Grayskull cape, FFVII Guardian Force Odin hands, 4H Timekeeper head, and various other fodder parts for armor and details. He features metallic red sections and comes with a Drill Staff he can use to tunnel his way through his foes. Watch out Eternia, Skeletor has competition!

Custom MOTUC Ty-Daal-Ray figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom MOTUC Ty-Daal-Ray figure
Deep beneath Eternia lies a vast expanse of subterranean rivers and oceans protected by the heroic Ty-Daal-Ray. Nicknamed 'Tidal Rave' by his allies because of his wild colored fins This aquatic warrior knows every delta and shore of Subternia's waterways and is ready to defend them against any foe. Ty-Daal-Ray was created using a stock MOTUC body, modded halo 4 Grunt head, Ben 10 Highbreed vinyl figure upper wing set, Hydron lower legs, Man-E-Faces codpiece/chest hose, toybiz Venom Phage hands, and Prometheus Trilobite tentacle tail. Getting the parts to fit together was challenging as was blending the sculpt together but I'm thrilled with the finished product. One sea-inspired paint job later, sealing and detailing, Ty-Daal-Ray is ready to battle evil wherever the tides take him!

Tentakill Masters of the Universe custom figure by Jin-Saotome
Tentakill Masters of the Universe custom figure
Continuing in the Masters of the Universe Classics 'Subternia' theme comes the psionic warrior and master of battle tactics, Tentakill! With no mouth present he communicates telepathically and draws the life force from his prey using his tentacles while aiding Terra-Bull in the quest to dominate both below and above. Tentakill was created using a stock Skeletor body, Flogg legs, 200x Triclops armor, and a head sculpt mash of the Faceless one and the brain accessory to a comic Hellboy figure. Tentakill's lower arms were replaced with Spawn bendy demon tails and he was given a Mind-Blaster weapon as well as psionic weapon constructs that fit over them. Now Tentakill is armed for battle against Terra-Starr and the rest of Eternia!

Custom MOTUC figure Terra-Starr original character
Deep beneath the surface of Eternia lies a secret world where powerful warriors mine mystical ores and crystals that allow them to harness the elemental powers of the realm. Enter Subternia: The World Below! Terra-Starr is one of those warriors that specializes in drilling through solid rock with his power armor and laser claws. He was created using a Sy-Klone body, Manga Spawn hands, Icarius helmeted head, and various parts of Revoltech/Marvel Legends/DC Universe figures for the rest of his outfit. Metal bolts were added as well as clear laser claws and a assortment of drills to help him tunnel through any villain who might threaten the peace of Subternia!

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!

So Jin any thoughts on custom Amiibos? XD
Jin-Saotome Featured By Owner 9 hours ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I could articulate some easily I'm betting,.
Jakearmitage01 Featured By Owner 7 hours ago
Yeah they are even more detailed than Skylanders. Although with some I wish Nintendo hadn't gone with the actual Smash 4 poses which caused them to use colored plastic posts to rest the character on (Not all of them have this but the ones with their legs in different positions like Zelda, Link, and Fox, they did).

I of course got Fox (bug Star Fox fan growing up), but hope to see Mega Man, Pac-Man, and Duck Hunt Dog especially.
