Panda Khan Custom LEGO Minifigure

My intern has been really into Pandas lately. In addition to a few stuffed Pandas, I had given her the Panda Suit Guy LEGO minifigure when the LEGO movie minfigures were on store shelves, and I also have let her play with my TMNT Panda Khan.

Then it hit me - I could make Panda Suit Guy into a custom Panda Khan minifigure!

I don't seem to have any LEGO Samurai minifigure bits (has a LEGO Samurai minifigure been made yet?) so I did as best I could combining old Knight and Sherwood Forest character bits to get close to the original action figure colors. Which are of course not very accurate to the original Panda Khan comic book look, but whatyagonnado?

I also added a pony-tail rubber band for his head band. Unfortunately I couldn't find red, so pink will have to suffice for now.

After taking the pictures for this blog I also noticed that Panda Khan's eyes are red, so I replaced the head under the Panda 'mask' with one with red eyes. I also found a katana for him to wield.

I'm probably the only guy in the world with a Panda Khan LEGO minifigure!

  3. I built a Metalhead which I will highlight soon, and have a Casey Jones in mind. I saw online that someone used a Rhino head and made Rocksteady, so if I ever find one of those I'm doing that too!

  4. Nice! Great job on this MOC Eric! LEGO has created Samurai figures with a few themes including the original Ninja theme (a Classic Castle subtheme), Adventurers Orient Expedition (kind of), Ninjago, and Minifigures Series 5 included a Samurai minifigure. You might wanna try some of them bootleg Ninjago figures you see on eBay to get some samurai armor and weapons on the cheap.

    1. Good idea. My Stepson has a lot of parts and figures from the Ninjago line too, I'll have to dig through some of his stuff!
