Anti-FA Mutant action figure

"Since the dystopian days of 2017 one man clad in golden armor wields a mighty sword against those who would do our nation harm. He puts America First and stands like a mighty wall between all those who would invade and plunder its riches. Relentlessly attacked by enemies foreign and domestic, Emperor Donald Trump quashes the globalist forces by laying down law and order throughout the land. With the power of the American voice flowing through his veins and the whispers of Conservative values in his ears Emperor Trump battles the Anti-First-Amendment-Mutants that plague the land. The choice was made to Make America Great Again and with his supporters rallying to defeat the Anti-FA, mighty Emperor brought about change and prosperity to the USA, ALL HAIL EMPEROR TRUMP!"

My God Emperor Trump needed a nemesis to battle and I wanted to make a 2-pack so The fearsome Anti-FA Mutant was born! The mute Anti-Fa Mutant was created by H.E.R. think tank and programmed to destroy life and liberty using its hammer and sickle weapons! It uses a Classics Beast body, Thundercats animated Tigra lower body, mini Blizzard Protoss head, a modded Thor Hammer, Jack-O-Lantern's sickle, and Black Series Kylo Ren's cloth body cloak. Watch out citizens, don't let the Anti-FA catch you on the streets at night unarmed!

Space Force Adventure Donald Trump Action Figure
Are you ready to go where no President has gone before? Then check out Timothy Lim's Trump's Space Force book! This Indiegogo crowdfunded venture was pretty awesome and I helped contribute to its creation by constructing a special Space Force Adventure Trump action figure that was offered as a backer kit! The only one ever created, Space Force Trump was made using a Marvel Legends Starlord upper body, Blade lower legs, fodder hands, Moon base Dr Evil helmet, and a Trump headcast by Mos Eisley Castings. I was given promo art to work with and copied it as closely as I could using parts and pieces from my bins along with Apoxie Sculpt to tie it all together. One 'Starburst' rifle made from a Terminator gun later and he was finished! The base came from a Matrix real world Neo and the creepy alien tentacle in the back was an X-men brood tail and some Rathnar tentacles. One lucky Trump supporter owns this figure, so thank you for helping MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

God Emperor Trump action figure

Ok, maybe Donald Trump doesn't go around wearing power armor and smiting enemies with a giant sword but the 'God Emperor Trump' meme was pretty cool, superimposing Trump's head on the Warhammer 40K character. You may have seen it on facebook and image boards, and I decided to create a 6" Marvel Legends scale figure of him. I used a NECA Heroes of the Storm Tyrael body, cast Donald Trump head, DCD Aquaman hands, Digimon armor, and different fodder parts including metal eagles/wing symbols to create him. His standard was made using a Marvel Select Doctor Doom throne banner, Namor trident, and American flag ribbon. A very extensive weathered gold metallic paint job was airbrushed on to complete his glorious look. Love him or hate him if you're an American citizen then Donald Trump is your president as of this writing (02/02/18)!

MCUPunisher 001
Criminal scum is back on the menu boys and the Punisher is serving up a hot meal of lead and explosions! You've seen the Netflix Punisher series...well what if he was part of the Movie MCU? That's right, this week I'm brining you Shan...er, Frank Castle's comic style into the gritty limelight! Frank was created by combining the upper half of the Netflix Punisher with the lower half of Captain America, Wolverine arms, Mezco Deadpool webgear, and other fodder parts. He has a removable headband and comes with an arsenal he can wield against his foes.

Custom Guts the Black Swordsman action figure
An unstoppable mercenary from a dark era, Guts stands alone atop the bodies of his fallen enemies. If you've ever watched the anime or read the manga he doesn't need any more of an introduction than that, this is the Black Swordsman himself! Here I've created Guts for you in a movie-realistic look that will fit in with your 6-7" scale figures. He was created from a ML Ragnarok 2-pack Thor body, NECA Chris Redfield modded head, star wars arm fodder, Front Mission mech hand, BvS Armored Batman cape/Kylo Ren cowl, and a scratch built sword. That's right, the entire sword aside from the handle was made from cut styrene and plastic sections, you can see WIP shots on my instagram JinSaotome. Tons of muddy, blood spalttered, rusty detail was added and Guts was sealed up with Liquitex archival matte/satin varnish.

Hey, hello there! It's been a while since I've used DeviantArt. Almost two years have passed and I have...um....24k notifications sitting in my inbox. There wasn't one specific reason I stopped using DA to be truthful, just a lot of little things that caused me to be disinterested in the overall experience here. One was the constant "you can't do that without a premium membership" and another was the constant complaining by artists here. Yeah, the artists, not the critiquers. I also decided I didn't want to be known as "That guy with a DeviantArt page" as it was beginning to be a stigmata with that kind of attention foisted upon users. There's a lot of...eh, "questionable" art that gets uploaded here and being associated with DA was almost as bad as being associated with Tumblr.

However I'm told that many people find my work exclusively through google searches which links them here, then they ask me why I only update my site and post to forums or Instagram. Well, ok, I'll try DA again for a while and see how that goes. It's update time!
  • Listening to: loud music damages eardrums

  • Playing: with fire will get your burned
  • Eating: away inside you is true talent waiting to surface
  • Drinking: and driving makes you a moron
