    Custom MOTUC: NINJOR

    After much waiting I finally got my Ram man... so... I had to make a Ninjor.

    It was a hard build for me personally as Ram Man and Ninjor are my favorite two MOTU characters ever for a few reasons. But mostly I would say due to them both being the last two vintage figures my grandfather got for me when I was little... before his Alzheimer's took him from the world.

    Ninjor was [always] his personal choice. I can remember many times when I was young and I would play beside his recliner and I would ask him if he would want to play He-Man with me... he would always want to be the Ninjor figure.

    So now that he is done.... I have my Ram Man... an my grandpa's favorite, Ninjor...

    Well without any further waiting, here is the images of my build of Ninjor.

    Miss you very much Grandpa.

    He turned out great Rep! It might work to use the vintage bow with him. If not I'm sure there are plenty of other options out there.

    OH! He already has a bow! I used one from this figure. Its this one...



    Its something called a "Hunter Dan" action figure I found at my local hobby shop when I was in there looking for R/C parts, and I found him in a bargain bin for $5. Its a 8inch scale figure line but it was close enough that I decided it was worth $5 on.
    So I bought it, took it home an trimmed the bow down a lil to remove some extra bits here an there and then just added a lil chrome spray all over it to paint it liek the vintage one an thats it.

    ... the scale of the bow was very close to Bow's 6in bow his figure had. this one is... eh.. about 6 1/2 inchs in size.

    So it worked pretty well for the Figure.

    Wow! He came out fantastic. Beautifully drawn symbol on his chest too! And I like that you gave him his boots/feet from The Search for Keldor mini comic.

    The Preternia He-Man "Armor" suits him Pretty well! I love the idea of the Hood over the ninja mask. Reminds me of Storm Shadow! It looks like an actual Mattel made figure. Some may not like the feet used, but I do cause they look more Ninja-like.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Thanks Joe, I am glad someone spotted that about his feet. I gave him those because as like DO4M said, it helps make him look more like an actual ninja.

    Cool custom with a great story.
    Where are they? Where are your friends now? Tell me about the loneliess of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments about the backstory for making the figure everyone.
    It means alot to me; as this was a very special custom figure for me to try and make; and I am very happy that everyone enjoyed seeing it.

    Its stories like this that make us hold on to He-Man after all these years. The figure is awesome, and the story you painted is so vivid, its like I was there. Awesome stuff man!
    Nice touch with the Ninja boot, and are those his vintage nunchucks?

    Nope, those are 100% homemade chucks I made for him!

    The sticks for the chucks come from a bent palace guard staff that I had laying around and was cut into parts an measured upwards to scale up from the vitnage ones scale vs character and I added on a old watch chain I had.
    To make it work, I sliced a small bit off the tops on each side leaving that lil bit in the middle, then I took the exacto knife an spun on the point with it in the middle in the leftover flat bit to drill a hole in it very very slowly.

    Overall, I think it turned out pretty well!
