1st appearance episode "Michelangelo Meets Mondo Gecko"

Customized the original 1990 Mondo Gecko figure to more closely match his '87 toon appearance. A lot of sculpting involved, then repainted the figure. Customized some accessories as well.

From what I've seen so far, your re-sculpts (or 'toonification of the former Playmates toys) is really good. You definitely got the FW OT vibe.

Keep up the good work.

I don't need 6 inch ultra articulated collectors figures. If playmates did a line of toon accurate 4 inch figures as a collectible for us out there who grew up with the toon I think they'd make bank.

Is is great and I always love seeing when you do something new.

Hey thanks! I also prefer smaller scale figures, I feel the larger super articulated figures have too many unsightly joint lines. I'll be working on more customs to show here.

That's quite toon accurate!

Thanks, yeah I tried my best to get it toon accurate!

That looks really good! Never knew Mondo had a gun in the OT!

Thank you! Yup, he used a blaster gun when he was a villain in Mr. X's gang, so I gave him General Traag figure's blaster gun because it look kinda similar.

Yes, I will post some additional pics of the accessories in the cartoon.
