Marvel Legends Doombot Guard custom figure by Jin-Saotome
Marvel Legends Doombot Guard custom figure

They protect, defend, and impersonate the most powerful tyrant in all the world, they're Dr Doom's Doombots! This particular Doombot Guard is one of many and performs its duties with deadly, unwavering loyalty. This custom Marvel Legends Doombot was created from a BAF movie Ultron base, modded Select Dr Doom head, various fodder armor/hands/hose parts as well as rivets and plating. He was given a metallic airbrushed paint job and is now ready to defend Castle Doom for his master.

Custom Agent Smith action figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom Agent Smith action figure
He's back and more powerful than every, the Matrix's Agent Smith has downloaded himself into the Marvel Universe! This custom Marvel Legends Agent Smith was created from an Agent Coulson base body and McFarlane Agent Smith head and hands. The coat had to be split and plastic added to the back for it to clasp in the front and his head heavily modded underneath to fit on the ball joint. Different wrist pegs were used and made removable, a 'Smith-Copy' hand created, joint holes filled in, and finally a smoother paint job applied for maximum effect. I also modded a Bandai Tamashii Impact Effect base with a roadway look by repainting and adding underground pipes and wires.

Custom Bowen style Deadpool figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom Bowen style Deadpool figure
Deadpool is back once more, this time using the new Grim Reaper body mold. With one of his arms a sickle I had to find replacements and DCU Green Lantern forearms fit the bill with a bit of modding. Deadpool's black suit sections were sculpted on, a Casting Cave cast head used, Fantomex belt pieces, AIM Soldier bandoleer, and TMNT movie Leonardo swords attached for a clean, classic look. Airbrushed shading and highlights rounded out this custom Deadpool for a classic take on the character once again.

Custom Marvel Legends Riot Symbiote action figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom Marvel Legends Riot Symbiote action figure
Here we have yet another of the Life Foundation's symbiotes, a custom Marvel Legends scale Riot. The powerhouse of the group, Riot was created from an Anti-Venom body, modded head, claw-sculpted tigershark hands, and a GI Joe tendril plug-in. Looking almost like Venom but without the symbols Riot was given an airbrushed paint job with covered joint holes for a smooth appearance. Next up, the rest of the team!

Toybiz style Marvel legends custom Iceman figure by Jin-Saotome
Toybiz style Marvel legends custom Iceman figure
He's one cool character and part of the original X-men team, it's Iceman! This custom Marvel Legends 6" Iceman was created from the Target exclusive 3-pack Vision that has been making his rounds in many a custom Iceman/Human Torch. The first step was carefully removing all the white overspray using acetone and lots of Q-tips for those hard to reach crevices. The original Vision head was used, his bare feet and joint holes were resculpted using clear epoxy, and a belt sculpted. Thinned down Tamiya clear blue was airbrushed on and Iceman took on the homage of the vintage toybiz 5" Iceman you owned as a kid!

Another Journal Entry Update

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!
