    The Inhumanoids television show and Hasbro toyline is perhaps a bit less well known today, but was a very important part of my childhood. What’s not to like about 10 story tall monsters from the center of the Earth voiced by Chris Latta?

    The vintage D-Compose toy was completely dismantled and rebuilt to be 2-inches taller, include room inside for an inner pretender robot, and a removable magnetic back hatch to allow access. The improved D-compose has new hands, a pelvis and hip bones, a neck, and a scratch built alternate cartoon accurate head. Parts from a MOTU Battle Bones 200X, Fantastic Four Moleman monster, Spawn Violator figures, and the Violator Chopper were used to update D-Compose. The Battle Bones head had to be cut in half, trimmed down considerable, and put back together and scuplted to make a smaller head. A missile firing bone club weapon accessory was kitbashed from leftover parts. He was given the most detailed and disgusting paint job I could muster with lots of sores and oozing puss and blood for good measure. Almost all of the gory detail was on the original D-Compose toy, it needed some extra paint to bring it out.

    D Compose is part of an ongoing project to upgrade the Inhumanoids figure line. Here are my other entries so far:
    Earth Corps
    Blackthorn Shore
    Metlar

    D Compose can also serve as a Pretender Shell for MP Starscream. More on that here.

    Here is the only other D Compose custom I've been able to find on the world wide web.

    A cool catalog showing pre-production versions of the toy lines (definitely better than what was produced!)

    Woah, Inhumanoids! I thought they were consigned to the dustbin of history already.

    Good job! Really rotten-looking.

    This is amazing man, your work on these figures is top notch. I love what you did with the Earth Core updates. I also think D Compose needs some zombie minions like he did on the show :)

    Awesome work! :D 

    Inhumanoids is still an awesome series to this day, I wonder why hasbro hasn't thought to bring it back yet.

    Oh man I used to love this show back in the day. The 80's had the best cartoon hands down and I love seeing you upgrade these guys. I've looked at all of your Inhumanoid customs and they are all AWESOME!!!!!
    I think I'm going to buy the complete series on dvd and relive some of the best times in my childhood!!!!

    I would love to see what you could do with Spiral Zone!!!!
