Microman-style Jigen and Goemon from Lupin III Custom Figures By DirkMaximus

Independent: Jay Cochran - 2017.05.28
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a Microman-style Jigen and Goemon from Lupin III. These figures were done by DirkMaximus. Here is how he describes the making of them:

So for those who may not know, Takara Tomy released Lupin and Fujiko Microman figures in 2007. They're super cool, but what collection would be complete without Jigen and Goemon? (Well, Zenigata too, but he's not done yet.)

Luckily, I also found some Banpresto 5 POA action figures to get heads and accessories from for my customs. Here are the breakdowns:

Jigen:
Banpresto figure head (modified to fit a ball-joint)
Repainted Microman Lupin torso, arms, and Jacket
Unmodified Microman Lupin waist, legs, and feet
Gun accessory is from the Kubrick Jigen figure. It's much nicer than the Banpresto accessory.

Goemon:
Banpresto figure head (modified to fit a ball-joint)
Banpresto figure torso with a sculpted neck and added ball-joint, repainted
Arms from a Star Wars Clone Wars Nahdar Vebb figure, repainted
Lower arms and hands are Microman parts, repainted.
Legs and waist are from a Dragonball Evolution Goku figure, repainted
Custom sculpted sash around his waist
Banpresto figure feet
Banpresto figure Zantetsuken and sheath

The Fiat 500 is a Bburago. I think it's 1:24 scale? Slightly too small to actually fit the figures inside, but it still goes nicely.
