View Full Version : Dark Leo Custom in progress

I love Mateus' design for Dark Leo on City Fall. And as I'm a fan of Leonardo and collecting only its stuff, I was kinda frustrated that I couldn't put a toy of that character on my shelves, besides the twenties others Leo. So I decided to go back fifteen years in the past when I was used to do roleplaying and figurines games, and painting.
The turtle is still in process. I've started on the base of a 2003 Leo, as it was the only one I have in spare at that moment.

I tried to kep a Playmate spirit, and not to much details, not to much colours. To be honest, It would have taken more time to go further in the details, much more skill also, but I think easier than trying to keep the "toy" aspect of Playmates.
It was also my first time using FIMO, so first time modeling and scuplting. I have to admit I'm enjoying this exercice a lot, even if I don't have the necessary stuff to be as precised as it needed.

I still have to finish some accessories, the scarf, figure out if I do a full bandana or I just paint the existing band, and finish the assembling.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this come along. I too also really like the Dark Leo character and wish they had released a figure of him. This is def looking good so far.

Looking good. Interesting that you only collect Leonardo. I wonder how many fans limit themselves to just their favorite Turtle. I've always thought that if Hot Toys produced TMNT figures it'd be a tough sell 'cause you'd have to automatically buy all four, but maybe there are more people collecting your way than I think?

Looking good so far! I would love it if a dark Leo figure was released.
