This was inspired by the classic manga, Lone Wolf and Cub. I was reading that series around the time I made this custom and it really shows in the design of this ronin.
This custom ronin uses a head that was given to me by my good friend Dennis Derby. He repainted the Attlus to include two good eyes and then I repainted the hair and beard for my custom. The body is a mashup of parts, including a skirt piece from an old LOTR figure and some lower legs from a NECA Perseus that I modified to fit here. His belt is from an old Spawn figure, making a nice transition between the ML torso and the lower piece.
