Welcome to the Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide Action Figure Blog! This is an exciting series by Zenescope Entertainment that has led to what I hope you agree is a very cool action figure line co-produced by The CS Moore Studio and Zenescope.
Here’s the Monster Hunter Story:
“The Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide is the comprehensive guide every Monster Hunter must have! The guide covers the strengths and weakness of every known and unknown monster on earth or otherwise. Monster hunters will find it packed with tips on how to take down these creatures, or if they should steer clear of the beasts. Whether they are a weekend Bigfoot hunter or a hardcore Vampire slayer, this guide will help keep even a novice hunter alive.”
In choosing a sculptor for this project, I wanted someone who can sculpt the human figure well and who is also very accomplished with weapons and accessories. He also needed to know the tech behind toy articulation. Mat Brouillard was the perfect choice as he’s an experienced professional who delivers excellent work every time and on schedule.
In the first stage you see the simple figure being blocked out. In the second stage, Mat has started to add the articulation points and clothing details like finished wrinkles and gear straps. Next, we see MH coming along well, but we wanted a more covert look, so we dropped the military shirt and Mat gave him a pullover type garment. In the last set of pics, you see fully realized gear details and plus MH’s shoulder armor.
Stay tuned for next time when you’ll see some awesome weapons detail and the finished and painted figure!
