    Another Mossman Custom

    I really liked the Mossman prototype that was first shown. So I am trying to make my Mossman look like it. This is a work in progress. I'll update as I get more done.

    Deflocked and loin cloth switched:



    Basecoat for the Head painted:


    Head Flocked:

    I LIKE! If the rest of the figure carries the same quality, i think i may like this fully flocked mossy better than the other one. No disrespect to the other fellow.

    Thanks for the comments Jii Dee and Sallah. Here is another update. Painting is all finished. I just have to finish the flocking.

    This is an awesome idea. I'm looking forward to the finished product because that's the version I wanted most after they said flocking was to be involved.

    I agree. It does look cool without flock too. It has a neat two-tone plastic going on. And only the head is casted in a different plastic. The hands and feet are actually painted but, underneath the paint is the same plastic as the body. I expect to see some cool non-flocked customs soon too.

    More updates:

    Looking awesome, definitely looks more mossy like the proto. Kinda wishing I had ordered an extra Mossman....and knew how to flock.

    I see you're going prototype all the way, with the lighter nails and stuff, which is awesome! And I really dig that lighter face!!

    Now i'm sure I'm getting a mossman and do the same! This is so much cooler than the regular flock they did.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. It really kept me motivated to get this done. Here is the finished product. Let me know what you'll think. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    Brilliant work!

    I want one

    I know the flock comes off in water but what did you use to get all the glue off?

    And I'm loving the shorter loin cloth too

    I like the Mossman I have a lot better than I thought I would, but the short flocking looks really good and I would buy a re-release done just like this one. Really a nice custom.

    Man that looks great, in fact I like it better than the release, though I would have wanted the official version with the classic flocking material like they did. Would be cool if they did a reissue closer to the prototype just like you have done so we could have both. I'm surprised at how cool he looks without the flocking too.
    How bout a comparison pic next to the Mattel release?
