to get as close to the animated style

part kit, part my own.
The arms, helmet, abdomen, belt,
holsters, mantle, kama and pistols

The helmet started life as a Hasbro
kid's toy, but was extensively
resculpted to match the toon,
including a custom made range

The pistols are an original sculpt,
molded and cast in resin.
The holsters are also original, cast
in fiberglass, with grooves on the
insides to allow the pistols to seat
securely. Also note that the holster
straps run under the kama, to
match the look of the animation.
The kama is black faux-leather,
based on the mention of the
