    2011 Mumm-Ra

    Thought I'd already posted this guy over here but it seems i haven't so here's my new Mumm-Ra, currently adding some wings to him, updates when it's done

    Well,quite surprised to get this one finished today but got a real rush of motivation so here he is, Mumm-Ra the everliving from the new Warner Brothers cartoon.

    Now some of you may know I had issues with Bandai's Lion-O figure, well the issues were ten time worse with Mumm-Ra, he was just so weak looking to me, short stumpy legs and a barrel chest, lack of articulation and the usual black joints. What's worse is Bandai actually call this the "Collectors line". Anyhoo, that's enough of that, i needed a big bad and imposing Mumm-Ra so I set to work. Here's the recipe:

    Recipe:
    Helmet and head = Bandai Mumm-Ra - dremmel to fit neck joint.

    Bandages on head = white - LOTR lady elf skirt, sanded down, dipped in boiling water bent to shape then straight in cold.
    Red - DCSH Supergirl cloak strips, sanded down.

    Torso = ML Beta Ray Bill - sanded down discs, completely resculpted to include the chest symbol of Bandai Mumm-ra. Neck bandages sculpted. Magnet embedded in abs to attach to the lower half.

    Shoulder sockets = Sinister 6 Venom - securely attached to torso with quick steel and sculpted over.

    Shoulder balls and upper arms = sinister 6 Venom.

    Lower arms = Sinister 6 Venom with Bandai Mumm-ra pegs attached and sculpted over, sculpted bandages.

    Wrist guards and hands = Bandai Mumm-ra.

    Skirt armour = Bandai Mumm-Ra.

    Crotch, upper legs and knees = Sinister 6 Venom - Magnets embedded to attach to the top half.

    Shin armour and feet = Bandai Mumm-ra.

    Claw Shield = Bandai Mumm-ra - ripped off spider leg things and attach magnets so it's removable.

    Swords = Bandai Mumm-ra.

    Painted with Citadel and sealed with superglue, citadel satin purity seal and Vallejo satin varnish.


    Tons of fun with this guy and only a few headaches. Think that's definitely it for the cats now ( at least till Tygra and Cheetarah hit over here) got to get back to the many MOTU sitting in my WIP graveyard. Hope you all enjoy and thanks for taking a glance. Bye for now.....
