Community Series: He-Man (The New Adventures)

This is my 50th custom so I decided to go all out on it to celebrate. His tally chart on the blackboard totals 50 as a little tribute to my customizing milestone. I also added the slime on the base as a nod to some of the old 80s toys that were obsessed with slime. After I'd finished it I found some LEDs and thought, why not?, you're only 50 once. Anyhoo, here's my recipe:

Base= DCUC Vigilante
Head=200x trapjaw, used hot glue to fill it in and create a peg hole.
Right arm and lower left and hand=200x trapjaw.
Right torso=200x trapjaw, dremmel to fit and sculpt in the gaps.
Crotch piece= 200x trapjaw, dremmel to fit
Upper legs=200x trapjaw green things, foamy, sculpt and wire.
Kneepads=200x trapjaw
Lower legs= sculpt and wire
Feet and ankle joint= DCUC Black suit supes, to eliminate paint rub.
Belt=WCW Championship belt, face off a hero quest skeleton, sculpt and wire.

Weapons= Easily but firmly slot into gun arm
Claw hand= Bionicle lego
Gun hand = some random cheap gun
Crossbow hand= think it's GI Joe
Wrecking ball hand= Knockoff Joe Bazooka, piece of chain, piece of some sunglasses to attach chain and a foam ball
Sword hand= Dunno
Saw hand= Bionicle lego
Flamethrower effect= ghostrider projectile

Base was inspired by Bobtheodd's excellent Trapjaw's arsenal, cheers bob. I left a few spaces for extra weapons I'll probably make in the future.
