Another one of my COTU favorites in MOTUC style! As far as I know, COTU came up with character design, name, and background and Chrisbryan has also done a great vintage custom of him. I got a lot of reference from his figure. COTU has many custom characters, and among my many favorites is Cact-Eye, evil enemy of Rio Blast. So in my mind he is able to shoot his quills out of his body, making a great arch-enemy for our favorite Eternian gunslinger.
Kobra Khan base with Spikor armor and head, random loincloth and Whiplash feet. Finish him off with a dab of Demo Man's mace. The only sculpting I had to do was on his eye. I just Dremeled a small about away from Spikors eyes to make room for the cycloptic eyeball. A fairly simple custom, this one only took me about a week to complete. Granted I was really driven to finish him in time for Power Con. So anyway, here he is. I've got a few more new customs to show, but trying not to clog up the boards too much with all my stuff.
That is so amazing!!!! Just beautiful! Keep posting you can never clog up the boards!!
Is not not licking toads
as always your stuff is amazing ME!
I love the fact that he actually looks like he could be a cactus! Brilliant!
I am looking forward to see your Blizzlor figure posted!
This figure was amazing to see at power con and one of my favorites. He really fits in with the motu universe and would be a great henchman for Evil Seed and nemesis to Moss-Man or Rio Blast I'm definitely going to be hunting down another Spikor to copy that recipe.
At this time, I'm not taking commissions or selling any of my customs. Sorry everyone, I'm just a tease.
that is real brilliance.
a cyclops with a great reuse of parts. sweet!

A truly great translation into MOTUC. Loving the chozen paint colours (the brown/green in his face) you did on him.
Nope.... nothing here! Just a link to my site http://motumulder.webklik.nl/page/fotoalbum with customs!
Fun concept and excellent execution as usual!

Thanks for the comments guys, glad you all seem to like him as much as I do. He is front and center in my collection, I like him a lot.
This is utterly brilliant. Love me some Cyclops.
Always in the market for Painted Backgrounds from the Filmation MOTU + She-Ra Toons, Bravestar, Blackstarr.
Aw, man is this guy brilliant.
Name based on a pun? CHECK!
Figure depicts the pun completely? CHECK!
You sculpted a big eye onto an existing head. You did it very well, but that sort of thing shouldn't work this well and it DOES!
I love how you highlighted the boot scales and arm fins to look like cactus parts. It's so very very clever and it makes the whole concept really tight.
Another lovely piece by you John. Great use of parts, great color scheme and good name. I always look forward to your customs.
My only critique is the mouth. As he is a 'plant' man, removing the mouth would really help the head stand apart from the original Spikor head. A cool hand swap could really help him pop. Perhaps a knobby cactus weapon on the opposite arm of Spikor. Also a red belt would really pop and match his eye. Just my opinion.
Otherwise, as with all your customs, he looks wonderful!

This guy is awesome, another favorite of mine that I saw at Power-Con. I wish Cact-Eye, Blizzlor, and O-Beast were actual characters in MOTUC.
