All was resculpted and re-cast, so looking back I could really have used anything. Parts was so taken apart by the end, that it made no difference.

But basebody (torso, feet, head, tail) was 2004 Animated Splinter. Heavily altered.
Sleeves was LOTR Gandalf, hollowed out and fitted with NECA turtle shoulders inside.
All joints were from NBA Hero figure, but any ML would do I guess. Did not know I was recasting it so I went for joints that were cast brown, hence the NBA-dude.
Hands from WWF-fgure - only used 3 fingers, scaled pretty well with the proportions.
Torso was hollowed out and fitting on top of a NECA Turle waist and butt. Also used his thighs, sculpted over.

Lower skirt was also from Gandalf - cut to 4 pieces and sculpted together in different configuration.

Great stuff man!! I wanted to make a custom Mirage Splinter for a while and you kickstarted my project. I can only hope it will be half as great as your Splinter! Simply amazing dude!

Colored Splinter ready!

Hi y'all! Finally got this bad boy done - pretty much a repeat of the B/w ones, but this one is now in full color. Dyed the resin and painted his fur, also molded and cast one of the original dioparts to go along. Finished him off with a little rat to truly match the clamshell release. Up on Ebay now!

Wo-aahhh!!
This is not only the best Splinter I have ever seen as a figure - this is actually such a beautiful act of art. I'd love to see WIP pics. Also a big up for the comic pictures - they come out so great making me at first suspect real comic strips in the preview pictures

Thanks a lot, really appreciate it. Also love that comic, had a blast making it. Was just goofing around with the photosetup and realized it could be turned into a mini comic afterwards. And when putting it together I kind of just put the captions in as I went along. When I reached the last page it actually was kind of cool, lol.

If you use Facebook, check out my page there - tons of wips on this entire process. Either check timeline or go to albums.

Packaging B/W Splinter

Just notriced I never posted the finished package for B/W Splinter. Used the bootleg ones as a template and created my own artwok on top, using the original comics and artwork. I work as an illustrator, so this was right up my alley. Finished it off with some of my own illustrations on the front and back. A nice little extra touch. Hope you like it!
