Earthworm Jim by Jin-Saotome Earthworm Jim by Jin-Saotome
Get ready for a blast from the past, it's everyone's favorite annelid Earthworm Jim! I loved this game and the characters even more so I'm hoping I did Jim justice here. His upper torso is a DCU Bizarro with LCBH Savage Dragon arms, waist, and legs. His hands came from a DCU Mongul for the 3-fingers look and his head/gun was from an original Earthworm Jim toy by Playmates. Aves Apoxie Sculpt was used to create the upper collar, gloves, repair the chest, and sculpt the exaggerated toes. I used strips of plastic to make the belt and bandoleer straps. His head is on a full double-ball joint and can be attached to a bendy worm-body for his suit to whip around just like he did in the game! Earthworm Jim was a long time coming and I think I nailed his look.

Wow, this blew my mind. Have Doug seen this yet? :O Jin, it's been long since checked out your stuff and even talked to you, and I can't even remember how I did it, but I never actually found you on deviantART, so here I am, Watching you now :D You deserve it with all that creativity.

And also, here's some big news. For all fans of Earthworm Jim, The Neverhood, Skullmonkeys and TenNapel in general, I think you would be interested in this [link]

He can even come out of his suit, and have the suit use him as a whip...

My worm... This is incredible work! This is exactly how an Earthworm Jim action figure should work! Not only does he come with his trusty blaster, but you've gone ahead and added the joy off pulling him out of the suit and using him as a whip!

Genius. Absolute genius and an incredible feat of three-dimensional, physical art!

This is so well done. Nice attention to detail. The whip feature is an excellent throw back and this figure looks like something I could purchase straight from the manufacturer. If I hadn't seen it in a "modded action figures" page, i wouldn't have knon the difference.

Awesome job.

Amazing! Ah, I've already forgotten about those games. talk about nostalgia. Now I gotta check the Wii Store for them... or hit up eBay.
It looks a whole lot better than the original toys.

Amazing work. Would love to see other EWJ charcters like this. :)

On a side note: I dunno why, but I would love to see your take on classic Doom characters. I just feel they'd look great in action figure form.
