Earthworm Jim By Jin Saotome

General: Jay Cochran - 2011.05.01
This week's TNI Cool Custom, is of a 6" Earthworm Jim figure by Jin Saotome. Here is how Jin describes the making of this figure:

"Get ready for a blast from the past, it's everyone's favorite annelid Earthworm Jim! I loved this game and the characters even more so I'm hoping I did Jim justice here. His upper torso is a DCU Bizarro with LCBH Savage Dragon arms, waist, and legs. His hands came from a DCU Mongul for the 3-fingers look and his head/gun was from an original Earthworm Jim toy by Playmates. Aves Apoxie Sculpt was used to create the upper collar, gloves, repair the chest, and sculpt the exaggerated toes. I used strips of plastic to make the belt and bandoleer straps. His head is on a full double-ball joint and can be attached to a bendy worm-body for his suit to whip around just like he did in the game! Earthworm Jim was a long time coming and I think I nailed his look. "

Yeah, definitely awesome John. I might have to use that recipe that seems like the best Earthworm Jim custom I've ever seen. I'll be greatly offended and surprised if this doesn't get Custom of the Week.
