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...

Custom BTAS stylwe Clayface action figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom BTAS stylwe Clayface action figure
Clayface is one of Batman's deadliest foes, able to change into anyone or anything along with being nearly indestructible. Here I've created a custom Clayface figure based on his Batman the Animated Series clearance. A DC Select Sculpt Clayface was used for the base and the head resculpted. The body was cracked apart and the rotten bendy arms removed. Marve Legends Rhino BAF shoulder peg inserts were added so the Rhino arms could be attached, then sculpted over. Hands from a Hero Mashers Carnage were used with the removable pegs assisting in making the spiked clay ball and blade removable. A full airbrushed paintjob later and this Clayface looks ready to take on Batman and win!

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.

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!
