custom cast Remco warrior beasts body

I commissioned this 2 toned body from a custom caster to somewhat match this head. I think it has a nice vintage look.

Comment moderation


Due entirely to one person who has repeatedly made rude comments that Im forced to remove I will now have to turn Comment moderation on. I'm sorry to all those of you out there who are cool and don't feel like belittling other people creations for no reason ,I know the Comment moderation is kind of annoying but I have no other option.It's not like I go on other peoples blogs and say hey why don't you freaking move out of the 1980's already or nobody wants to see your stupid recolored movie scenes or hey you come off as super arrogant and snotty like some kind of stuck up lawyer ..no I have never done that so please keep the comments on my blog respectful.

Red Death

This guy came about from a spare parts pile and a recently beheaded body .It turned out fantastic in my opinion and is now one of my favorites .Also the cape is 100% custom and made from a material that is very close to what remco used back in the day (the cover of an old 3 ring binder )

Admittedly these did not come out anywhere near what I had in mind and I might try again some other time.Today it was just nasty out and the mosquitoes were killing me .

Zorn the barbarian

This Zorn figure has transcended the mediocre television show that spawned it  ,taking on many unique personas in the minds and on the shelves of collectors .Zorn here has moved beyond being a goofy, short  lived character and has now stepped into line with the heroes of yesterday.

Congratulations Zorn , you are now a legend!

Oculus The Beholder (goofy prototype version)

This is not the finished project it is a simple manifestation of my impatient  inability to wait two days for the mail. Its looks kind of cool but his head is comically oversized .Ill post pictures of the actual finished project over the weekend.

Evil kitanalyn

Dragoon?

This is Galaxy heroes Dragoon (or maybe not as there is some debate in the KO community as to if this guy also holds they name Dragoon or if he is just a nameless KO of KO .

Remco, Lost World of The Warlord

I completed the set! I need to reproduce a couple costumes and track down a few weapons still but having all the figures makes me pretty happy.

Underworld Warriors

this is Underworld Warriors Blue demon skeleton guy ( some call him Krampus but its no Krampus because these predate the rebirth of Krampus back when nobody had heard of him). One down five to go and on a completely related note can anybody out there spot me 3k ? just kidding but really this collection is going to be painful .

The top 5.5 I need in my life

To follow up on the theme my best friend Alexis posted *here* Im going to do a top 5 list but its not the  "Top 5 Vintage MOTU figures (IMO) that I do not currently own" my list is The top 5.5 I need in my life .I decided to go this route because the MOTU figures Im still missing Im just missing because I haven't bought them yet not because I can't find / afford them but the things on this list I can either not find or afford.

5: Remco Warrior Beasts Wolf Warrior. He turns up very rarely and when he does turn up you can guarantee that 300 other people want to win him just as bad as you do.

4: Sungold Galaxy Warriors Dragoon .another figure that isn't always around , this guy can quickly rack up the bids to 100$ or more loose.

3: Remco Conan Thoth Amon : This is again a case of supply and demand .Loose examples of him come and go in the blink of an eye and carded examples run between 300$ to 500$.

2: Underworld Warriors : They are rare and expensive and high on most KO collectors want lists.

1:Speclatron Dethlor: The holy grail of 5.5 Ko collectors. This guy will cost you over 1000$ loose ,if you want just an arm that will cost you over 100$ .I had this guy for a long long time and then he broke in half and from there Im clueless where he went. When I went to replace him a few decades later I was shocked to see that the figure I picked up at Toys R Us with leftover pocket change (from playing in the arcade next door) was now ridiculously expensive .



and now as a bonus ,this is a picture of how my first shelf full of non MOTU 5.5 figures looks on the morning of 7/11/2018.

*please forgive the poor lamp placement*
I'm about to expand onto another shelf so I will keep you guys updated!
