Once Upon a time in China Wong Fei Hung Kit Bash

Wong Fei Hung was a Chinese martial artist, physician, acupuncturist and revolutionary who became a folk hero and the subject of numerous films and television series. He is considered an expert in the Hung Gar style of Chinese martial arts.

Ok...I must admit I am not a history buff or expert.
Why I like Wong Fei Hung was because of the series of Once Upon a Time movies written and directed by Tsui Hark and Wong Fei Hung played by Jet Li.

Once Upon a Time in China is largely credited with starting period martial arts craze of the early to mid 1990s. It is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. Once Upon a Time in China 2 was my favorite out of the whole series.

This is a kit-bash using a modified Enterbay's head of Jet Li for their Fearless figure. The modification was done in a shop where they repainted the skin for better realism.
The body is Enterbay's RM-5 which has the perfect fit for an Asian Kung-Fu Master.
The Chinese suit is your typical suit you can get in most 1/6 figure shop.

I am pleased with the overall figure.
Finally I have Master Wong Fei Hung in my collection!

Kit-bashing Asian characters is tricky as you need to get a good body to properly portray an Asian body.
Using the normal body may make the figure too bulky and may not look realistic for an Asian character.
