GI Joe Ryu Hayabusa by Jin-Saotome GI Joe Ryu Hayabusa by Jin-Saotome
Here's Ryu Hayabusa in 3 3/4 inch form! He was styled like the new 25th Anniversary GI Joe action figures and was made from a Stormshadow body, Xamot upper arms, and Riplcaw's arm bands for the sash tails. His wrist wraps, belt, and neck sash were sculpted with Fixit Sculpt. I gave him a factory paint job because I was going to enter him into Broken Arrow Toy's custom contest until I read 'Only GI Joe characters'. Do'h! Since Ryu is from Ninja Gaiden he'll have to sit this one out.

It is a great paint job.
I never did like Hayabusa's original costume but in this case I'll make an exception.

Even if it wasn't Hyabusa I'd say it's a great custom anyway.

Awesome, totally awesome. I like that it's Classic Ryu Hayabusa not Itagaki's Ryu Hayabusa.

The clean factory-style paint job helps it blend in with the other figures and that always looks cool in dios. It also gives it basic feel of an old-school sprite. Great work as always, Jin.

That first pic on the third row looks a bit like his old NES pose.

Thanks PrimeOp. Usually I do shading and a wash for definition but you're dead on, factory style for sprite-look!

Ryu Hayabusa... the name sound familiar but unless that's Ryu from SF in a ninja getup I don't know who it is.

He's the main character for the Ninja Gaiden Series.

He's also in the Dead or Alive Series.

Ah... that's why he sounds familiar. unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on your opinions of the games) I've never played either of the series he's in except for DOA:XBVB.

You own a bike, cool! Really watch out on those things, especially the crotch-rockets. I use to ride on my dad's and brother's bike. My bro had a Honda Hurricane 1000 and man it was hard on the back. I ended up preferring the touring Goldwing styles.
