    Minotaur conversion kit,.....Mino-tor.



    This guy was sculpted on a old motuc headless buck, neck and head together, I then carefully removed the head and moulded it , the neck was then cleaned up and moulded, the wax is then taken out of the mould and liquid plastic is poured in,
    While the plastic is still in it's wet form, a very Vaselined up buck is pressed in to the mould, this gets messy but it gives me the negative side of the sculpt so it fits nice on the neck of most MOTUC's figures , I then remoulded the neck So I have a silicone mould to get more out ,
    Paint and then pop it on,
    I use a bit of blue tac to give it a good fit ( Kevin Kosse, Tin, style),
    Hope you guy like him

    My buddy SpyMagician created a Minotaur character and figure for the 20XX line that he let me incorporate into my Secrets of Grayskull storyline. Torr-O. He even has the shackles and chains on his arms.

    It's GrAyskull. It's posted all over the packaging and this site.
    CANON-the body of rules, principles, or standards accepted as axiomatic and universally binding in a field of study or art, such as a storyline
    CANNON-a mounted gun for firing heavy projectiles; a gun, howitzer, or mortar.

    I will change my avatar as soon as Imp is made in MOTUC

    Thanks guys, yeah I think the idea of a Minotaur in chains is cool, he would probably work well on a beast man body,

    I'd love to do hooves, but the pin and ankle joint would be quite a complicated thing to reproduce as a conversion kit to sell,....maybe a lord Daktus buck would work, hmmmm, might look good

    Zombihamma,

    My thoughts are that you can make some attachments that would cover the human foot with the hoof. My (crude) sketch below shows and idea that just popped into my head in reading about hoofs. With the foot slanted back you have the ability to recreate the slanted front of a hoof. Also, just like with women's heels, this adds a bit of height to the figure that would add some height very similar to Dactus. If the "hoof" extension is treated like a shoe you keep the ankle articulation. They'd have to be somewhat snug so that there aren't issues with balancing but it's definitely doable. (Hoofed figure shown is a Four Horsemen Xetheus)
