    Thanks.

    Pretty good match, no?

    Glow's feet are a little more blue. Webstor's are the closest I've seen.

    So your average Origins figure can be disassembled like so...

    Known exceptions are the battle armor figures and Mosquitor who do not have removable arms, Fisto who's big hand can come off but maybe shouldn't and is not interchangeable. And of course Ram Man only has swappable head and arms.

    I have to say, I love the idea that Faker probably operates using an 70's-early 80's tape drive. I hope that never changes.

    T-MAN - Master of the Universe

    “T-Man, you sonuva bitch!”

    I’m sure I’m not the first to do this swap but basically I wanted a MOTU Mr. T, minus the WWE-ish bits because I’m not really into wrestling. So I bought a Clamp Champ and made it happen. If I’m feeling bold, I may paint the harness, bracers, and belt gold at some point. Because obviously T looks better in gold.

    Looks great.

    I always thought Mr. T's MOTU name should be "Pitty-D-Fool". Cause hyphens!

    That's pretty good. I can see Clubber Lang being reworked into a MOTU name too.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if there was anything special (like if I should warm up the joint first) I needed to know. Would you happen to know if they got the idea from Zoloworld?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for the picture, and I'm glad I asked before I started pulling things apart - you see I thought the elbows and hips could be pulled out as well. That would have ended poorly.

    Here’s about the best blow apart I’ve seen on the Origins body. Heat via water or hair dryer can get the rest of those pieces separated. The 2nd is a Classics body which gets to be a pain in the ass with all the separate pieces.

    I just love the easy mix and match aspect of the line. Makes me wish they had more compatible lines like still having DC Superheroes.

    You can get the elbows, knees and hips apart with some extra work.

    1. Bring some water to a boil, just enough to submerge the part you want to disassemble.
    2. Remove water from heat, pour into another bowl if possible.
    3. Place parts in water for about 3 minutes.
    4. Pull apart and rearrange as desired.
    5. Let cool or place in freezer

    Ha, thanks. Was hoping that reference wouldn’t fly over everyone’s head.

    And if you like Arnold movies, you may like this next dude:

    Got these custom pieces (2 Conan heads, the necklace, and sword) from an awesome customizer on Instagram. If/when I get the gold paint for T-Man then I’ll also touch up the bracers and belt on this guy.

    If anyone is interested, check out bujubu on Instagram for more custom pieces:

    I would be down for that.
    I've been rewatchung the old series and they do another of "twinkle fingers" also that wouldn't be a bad idea for the accessory packs.

    Love this!
    This reminds me of a monster from an 80s(maybe 90s) movie. Ugh, I can't remember it. Does anybody know what I'm talking about?
