Custom Tron Bonne and Gustaff *UPDATE*

Now, I know some of you are getting a little tired of the Jin Saotome custom figure posts, but this one is just too cool not to show off. Sorry. Without further adieu, I give you Tron Bonne and Gustaff:The figures stand at roughly 3 ¾, complete with fully articulated joints. Best of all, the Gustaff can be deconstructed to reflect battle damage.
"From out of nowhere comes Tron, a feisty little lady with a hand for creating her own bizzare mechanical contraptions such as Ride Armors. Rock and Gung Ho encountered her while searching for a band of Air Pirates just outside of the East borders and were assaulted by her robotic helpers. After some long negotiations Miss Bonne begrudgingly agreed to help the Joes fight Wily and Cobra's forces when she realized some alliances are more dangerous than others. We will have to keep a close eye on her for the time being."
You can find the auction for both figures here. Current bid at $31. Happy bidding!

Thanks, linkfreak131

UPDATE: Oh Look, a spiffy Dr. Wily figure. Looks pretty sweet, it's got the crazy hair and everything.

  1. Mech's pretty badass, but not as much as Vile and Metalman were.

  2. I think it looks good overall, but I'm just not used to seeing a realistic version of Tron Bonne. Great looking Gustaff though, I think that translates well with the realistic style.

  3. Ok, this one I actually like. It looks like the original characters, and not some bizarre alternate universe mashups.

  4. Realistic Tron is creepy looking.
    I don't think Gustaff got as much attention as other figures go, though. I'm a little dissapointed.
    Personally, though, I'd probably prefer an anime styled figure of tron and gustaff.

  5. The Gustaff is badass but Tron Bonne looks really weird.

  6. This makes me wonder if he'll branch into EXE or SF... I'm not sure if I want him to or not. XD

  9. @Anon 7: WHO FRELLING CARES? It's a cool figure that Mr. Saotome put a lot of effort into; isn't that all that matters?

  10. You didn't put Wily up! Btw, he looks pretty badass too.

  11. I think it's pretty neat, especially the Mech, but Tron herself is supposed to be about 14-years-old in the games, and this action figure looks MUCH older than that! Still, I'll cut Jim some slack since he's custom designing these figures with parts from various toys.

  14. Gustaff and Wily looks very cool, but Tron looks like a 40 years old woman with teen clothes and hairstyle... Still good, anyway.
