Marvel Legends Classic Hawkeye custom figure by Jin-Saotome
Marvel Legends Classic Hawkeye custom figure
To kick off a new assortment of Marvel Legends customs I bring you Hawkeye as you've always wanted him, in his classic Avengers outfit! He was fairly simple to make using the Odin wave Hawkeye and replacing the Winter Soldier mech arm with Black Panther's and giving him new hands. Wrist cuffs and arm bands were sculpted on as well as a quiver strap and all joint holes were sculpted over. But the real difference is how I'll be painting my figures in the future. They'll be fully airbrushed. Now all basecoats, shading, and highlights will be done using an Iwata HP-CS Eclipse airbrush to achieve a subtle, cleaner look. It got to the point where I plateaued using brush work and needed to raise the bar. Hawkeye was also given a modified Red Arrow bow that actually fires arrows along with three bolts to use. So here's Hawkeye, the first of a brand new level of paint work!

Custom Eternian Knight He-Man figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom Eternian Knight He-Man figure
He-Man has many armors but one stands alone as the most protective and most powerful of them all, the Eternian Knight Armor! Created by Man-At-Arms and enchanted by the Sorceress herself, He-Man uses this powerful armor to protect himself against the many beasts and magical attacks Skeletor might throw his way. Here I've given He-Man this concept armor design using a Sky-High body, Extendar upper arms, He Man lower arms/head, resculpted Intergalactic Skeletor feet, Sigma 6 armor and various other fodder bits. A Warmachine sword was used for his new weapon and He-Man was given a knightly paint job to finish.

MOTUC style Manglors MANGLORD figure by Jin-Saotome
MOTUC style Manglors MANGLORD figure

When Hordak discovered a race of beings capable of recombining their DNA at will he knew the applications would be endless if he could capture one. But what he didn't know was how hard that would be! Manglord doesn't take kindly to those who trespass upon Manglor Mountain and with his indestructible form easily thwarted Hordak and his minions in battle. Whether he was crushed, pummeled, or even had a limb sliced clean off, Manglord reformed to his original powerful state and continued to fight!

If you remember Manglors they were sticky one-piece figures made from Sorbothane that came in eggs. Supposedly you could rip them apart and stick them back together, unfortunately that didn't work and the toy line disappeared. Well here's the ruler of Manglor Mountain, Manglord himself created in MOTUC 7" scale. He was made from a basic MOTUC body, NECA Prometheus Engineer head, Slushhead lower arms, and sculpted petal detail. He was given an extremely detailed swampy paint job using all sorts of dripping and splatter effects.

Custom MOTUC Skeleton Warrior figure by Jin-Saotome
Custom MOTUC Skeleton Warrior figure
When the reanimated skeletons of warriors fallen in battle arrive at your doorstep you some sort of dark magic has to be at work. Enter everyone's favorite bone-baddie the Skeleton Warrior! Credit to He-Mike Customs for coming up with the vintage Aracula recipe for this figure. I used a MOTUC King Hsss waist so you can pop the Skeleton Warror apart to make it look as if he's coming out of the ground or crawling. Vintage Skeleton Warrior Aracula bones and torso were used and a Castle Grayskull skull was modded for the head. Now it was time to accessorize him with all sorts of armor, helmets, weapons, and cloaks. You can mix and match parts to get an Egyptian, gladiator, or Rogue look. A multi-jointed neck vertebra allows him to get those creepy hunched poses. Watch out He-Man, the undead approach!

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..
