ThunderCats Custom Figures By Fluxcapacitortoys

Thundercats: Jay Cochran - 2017.12.03
This week's TNI Cool Custom figure is of some Four Horsemen style ThunderCats figures. These figures were done by Fluxcapacitortoys. Here is how he describes the making of the figures:

"Like many people I was really disappointed by the news that Super7 would not be able to get the Thundercats licence and able to continue the line that Mattel started. All the more because I was just a little too young and missed the original figures in the 80's.

A couple of months ago I decided to start looking for MOTUC figures that would make a good base and landed on Filmation Evil-Lyn for Cheetara and Oo-Lar for Tygra (using the spare head from Bow).

I filed and dry sanded off all the pieces on the figures I didn't need and then followed up with a wet sand. Once that was done, I sculpted the additional pieces with epoxy putty and wet sanded those pieces before spraying the whole figure with a grey undercoat. After that everything is hand painted with acrylic model paint.

It was hard to decide on a color scheme for Tygra as it varied a lot in the Rankin Bass series but landed on this one as it seemed to suit the MOTUC figure better than some of the others."
