TMNT Chrome Dome by Jin-Saotome TMNT Chrome Dome by Jin-Saotome
Here's a full shot of my 6" custom Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Chrome Dome. His design was a mix of the original toy (of which I'm a fan of the colors) and his SNES Tournament Fighters game sprite where he had different designs and extending limbs/fist spikes. Though the TMNT Tournament Fighters one was copper and gold instead of silver and gunmetal.

Chrome Dome's head and chestplate came from the original TMNT Playmates figure! Those sculpts were excellent for the era as evidenced by being able to use the head without any actual sculpting modification, all I did was added a ball joint to the neck. His body came from a ML House of M Iron Man, lower arms from a Mark VI Iron Man, hands from the Mark V, and feet from Deathlok. All the other details on him came from various fodder parts and I'll soon put up the full set of pics which show his extending limbs.

I would like to say Chrome Dome is the original Cyber Shredder.

Superb. I love Metalhead too. I thought, time ago, in the posibility of making a hi-articulated upgrade to him. Seeing this, I now think thatīs very possible.

This is awsome! Chrome Dome was my favorite in Tournament Fighters! I always loved the figure since it came out. I was looking for a way to make a Chrome Dome that would look great with the figures of today and you gave me some ideas. I agree with you about the sculpts since I have been looking for the right pieces to make my other favorite Wingnut.

Weird, I was only just thinking about how cool Chrome Dome was the other day! I loved the TMNT toys as a kid. The huge variety of characters etc.


Which begs the question....you gonna do a robotic Rocksteady? :D

there is something vaguely Egyptian about his head sculpt, or is that supposed to be a samurai helmet? I'm afraid I don't remember this character.

I dunno...I'd say samurai, but I keep seeing Egyptian too because the figure had those wings on the back

From the moment I saw that thumbnail I knew you used the original headpiece. There truly was no need to modify it whatsoever.
