    VOLKAN - magmatic warrior of great link - MotUC

    Hi motu friends.

    This is my new (exc not last ) masters of the universe custom; his name is Volkan.






    Volkan is one of the last man of his species.

    He's a surly inhabitant of the hottest gorges of mountain Olympus, the largest volcano of Eternia ( ... ).

    Volkan is one of the last of his people that comes in humanoid form. A long time ago in , magmatic people made ​​a choice: to feed the underground life of the planet becoming magma, merging their minds in a single vast sentient body: the Great Link

    But a terrible conflict broke out just before the "big melt" a few individuals led by the mighty Calix, decided that the "the Great Link" was not the right choice for them and rebelled violently.

    These individuals preferred to abandon their magma form, to assume an humanoid form.

    Volkan is one of the few faithful guardians of the Great Link, chosen to protect the sea of ​​magma into the largest cave into the Olympus.



    Volkan is a good friend of He-Man and Man-at-Arms and willingly helps the heroic warriors in their adventures against the evil lords of Eternie and beyond ...



    I used:
    Castle Grayskull Man body
    Skeletor loincloth
    Draego man sword

    head and part of armor are entirely sculpted.

    GREAT WORK!!! This was exactly what I was planning for a custom giant commission I am working on right now!

    My only comment; other than how OUTSTANDING this custom is; would be this.
    When Snake Face comes out, I would recommend getting one extra just for a set of biceps to extend that magma look down the arm just a tiny bit further, to help give that look of the transitioning body as you did on the legs.

    Otherwise, AMAZING work! You attention to detail is mind blowing! I am now looking forward to seeing more of your work!

    Yeah! I love your custom, but caught that too: maybe you meant "latest custom"? I hope so

    Fantastic! Love the head sculpt and paint job! The sword is perfect for this character, better than for Draego Man because it looks like lava splashing rather than like fire.

    Thank you!
    About sword, I don't think Draego Man will agree with you!

    Not only do I dig the custom figure, but the BIO is freaking awesome. This seems like some forgotten write up from the 80's.

    I hope someone can put this into MOTUC bio form with maybe a little Fan-art.

    That is a great idea for a character and a great custom too!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!
