MOTUC Snake He-Man custom action figure by Jin-Saotome
MOTUC Snake He-Man custom action figure

Oh no what's this, has King Hsss turned He-Man into one of Hordak's Snakemen or is it just a twisted clone He-Man from the Fright Zone? Either way Snake He-Man has all the power and skills of the real He-Man making him a danger to all of Eternia. Wielding a Venomous Power Sword the scaly Snake He-Man will not rest until his coils are wrapped around Grayskull's throne.

Snake He-Man was made using a Calwful upper body, King Hsss head, He-Man hair/forearms, Skeletor hands, and the lower body of a Spawn Sansker. Weights were added to the hollow lower body section to maintain a better center of gravity for posing. A Horde symbol from Karak Nul's casting was added to the original He-Man chest vest and a 2-pack Skeletor power sword was given a clear green paint on the blade. If you look very close the 200X waist armor has the original yin-yangish symbols on it repainted into tiny snake heads! Hissss..

custom MOTUC Mandible Man concept action figure by Jin-Saotome
custom MOTUC Mandible Man concept action figure

With Buzz-Off patrolling the skies there's always trouble on the ground and that's precisely where Mandible Man comes in. Aiding his Andreenid friend in battle with his incredible strength, Mandible man can also chew through even the toughest of armor using his mandibles. His glossy armored carapace is naturally resistant to attacks making him the perfect warrior to charge through a squadron of Horde Troopers or even chew at Snake Mountain's front door!

Mandible Man is based on a concept art sketch from the Power and Honor Foundation Catalog #1, appearing as some sort of beetle character. Here he was created in Classics form using a Tung-Lashor body, Buzz-off lower arms/upper legs, TMNT Cockroach Terminator modded back shell, and a custom sculpted head. The base of the head is actually Tung-Lashor's with the horns coming out of his eye sockets. Posable mandibles came from a McFarlane flood Stalker. He was given a glossy coat for his beetle shell and features dark red highlights to it.

Ermac Mortal Kombat 6 inch custom figure by Jin-Saotome
Ermac Mortal Kombat 6 inch custom figure
FINISH HIM! And I did, my very first Mortal Kombat custom is done and it's none other than the telekinetic ninja Ermac. Created for a good friend of mine this Ermac was done in 6" scale using a Marvel Legends Black Panther body, Iron Man arms, Aves Apoxie sculpted armor details, and a foam tunic base that allows him full torso articulation. The eyes actually glow via light-piping that was fairly difficult to do. The eyes themselves are elliptical shaped sections of the double-prong party picks you can get at Walmart and come in clear colors, perfect eye shape. I then drilled out the back of his head, installed a piece of clear acrylic as a focusing lens, and removed half of the ball-post so that the head still moved around on it without coming off. The eye posts were inserted through carefully shaped holes I drilled and locked into the focusing block in the back of his head so that light shines through them from any direction. Two extra fists were added along with green energy effects created using the heat-vision NECA Dutch hands and hot glue. Now Ermac is ready to battle!

MOTUC Horde Trooper 2.0 custom figure by Jin-Saotome
MOTUC Horde Trooper 2.0 custom figure

Horde Troopers are a dime a dozen falling to the swords and blasts of Eternian heroes every day. This needed to change and Hordak knew it. Upgrading the Horde Trooper with augmenting everything he could the Horde Trooper Commander was born. This trooper was taller, stronger, and deadlier than any other on the battlefield. Programmed to feel no remorse or fear and with armor fashioned from magical alloys this 'Horde Trooper 2.0' is just what Hordak needed to turn the tide of battle in his direction!

The Horde Trooper 2.0 was created using a Marvel Legends Mandroid build-a-figure base body, sculpted head, collar, and shoulders, Grizzlor vest symbol, Sigma 6 wrists/feet, Megatron crotch plate, and Major Maxim hands. A stun rod was created using Flogg's weapons and various parts. He stands 1.5" taller than normal MOTUC figures and was painted using Testors Model master Acryl, Formula P3 paints with Liquitex acrylic varnish sealer.

Cosmic Enforcer Carnox by Jin-Saotome
Cosmic Enforcer Carnox

Faced with his most powerful adversary, an unstoppable, destructive force called Carnox all hope seemed lost for Zodac. So he recruited him! Carnox was bored with cutting a swath of destruction across his home planet so he accepted the invitation to join the Cosmic Enforcers and see the galaxy. Always upgrading his armor and creating ridiculously destructive weapons to annihilate enemies with, Carnox is always excited to charge headfirst into battle with anything the moment Strobo gives him the signal.

This custom Masters of the Universe Classics figure was made from an Icarius body/arm guards, Flogg upper legs/armor with modded Zodac sections, Zodack helmet, ML BAF Onslaught face, Xmen animated Colossus hands, and a Zodac style gatling blaster made from various parts and pieces. He was painted with Testors Model Master Acryl and Formula P3 paints then sealed with Liquitex acrylic satin varnish.

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!
