The most difficult part of this project was actually procuring 3 Ultimate Duke figures as bases for this crew. But I'm glad I spent the time, because I'm super stoked on how they turned out. I really wanted a nice land based SEAL team to add to my Joe ranks, and these fit the bill perfectly. They'll go nice with the Killer Whale vehicle I'm working on right now too. The wall diorama behind the figs in the lower pics was created using Styrofoam and plaster. Enjoy!
Much like any 1:18 scale action figure customizer, I am compelled to do at least one Deadpool figure using the City Strike Snake Eyes body. Nothing fancy here, just a cast head and a bash of different Snake Eyes figs, and a paint job. I went with an "X" belt instead of the Deadpool mask belt, because originally he was supposed to have been an X-men draftee in my A vs. X figure project. I probably change that bit before I retire this figure. Enjoy
I was inspired to create this version of the Red Skull by Jin Saotome's wonderful version of the character. Well, really I just straight up copied him. But that's OK, as long is credit is given where credit is due, and he deserves major props on all of his amazing works. Anyway, this figure is bashed together using the Indiana Jones Colonel Vogel figure, Renegades Cobra Commander legs, lower arms and hands. He now sports (almost) full 30th Gi Joe style articulation. The baton is a short length of aluminum tubing with little gold bits of jewelry fodder on the top and bottom. Hope you enjoy!
About My Custom Action Figure Blog
After being totally wowed by the plethora of Star Wars, GI Joe and Marvel Universe custom figures on the internet I got inspired to bust a couple out myself! The purpose of this blog is just to share my work, get feedback and make connections with other people who love custom action figures and creative expression as much as I do. I love comments, whether you love my stuff or downright hate it, so leave your opinions for me to see! I am always open to ideas and suggestions for new projects as well. Thanks for viewing, and may the Force be with you.
