MOTU m.u.s.c.l.e Heros

m.u.s.c.l.e was a super fun toy line back in the 80's. they were pink monochromatic toys that stood about 2 inches tall and consisted of 233 zany characters. I coupled them with another 80's favorite, Masters of the Universe, to come up with these little guys.

These are amazing. Mashing up two of my favorite toy lines from my childhood is an instant fave for me. Well done sir!

Fantastic! I love these! Did you mold them?
plasticplayhouse's avatar
no. i was big into m.u.s.c.l.e. toys back in the day, aswell as motu, so i mashed the two up for fun and now one guy owns them all :) about half were just me painting over the existing figure, the other half involved adding some sculpted details to enhance the motu in them.

thanks for the kind words :)

Ah, I see. I like them. You did a great job!
Barnlord's avatar
I meant to say, did you do any custom molding for them?

I had litterally just retrieved some storage from a frineds basement and shit load of these were one box. And I was thinking how cool it would be to paint them. And here these are all bad ass looking.
Awesome job! Any tips?

yes, scrub them with a toothbrush in warm water with dish soap. it removes any dirt/oil so the paint will adhere better. other than that...have a steady hand :)
