Zombie: The Businessman Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:14702  
Name:Zombie: The Businessman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Walking Dead
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:May 15, 2009
Base Figure:ML Simon Gareth Zombie From The Monsters Box Set
Height:6.00 inches
After reading 5+ trade paperback volumes of Robert Kirkman's Zombie epic, "The Walking Dead" I decided to create a few reanimated dead myself. I was also inspired by the Zombie-army scene in the Ghost Rider comic where part of the Devil possess the corpse of (the recently deceased) "Mad Jack".

-Using a Simon Gareth Zombie figure, I dremmeled out both eyes for a dried, sunken look.
-Removed the existing hair, and attached LotR Aragorn hair
-Used an extra MM Joker Goon suit Jacket, suitably 'ripped' up using my hobby knife
-Lower arms from a ML Professor X
-Shoes from a ML Movie Logan/Wolverine figure
-Cut the tie pieces from a fodder cape (a BAF Ronin cloak I wasn't needing)
-Cellphone accessory came from a McFarlane X-Files Movie Dana Scully

I repainted the zombie's skin tone to be gray, and dry brushed on various layers of grey-blue, grey-green, and three different shades of dirt on the hands, knees, and upper chest.

-The figure's base-stand was originally a standard ML base. I added a layer of hobby plaster, sanded it down, and painted it black. Three layers of Grey-Blue dry brushing later, I sealed it with a coat of Krazyglue-superglue, and x2 coats of Vallejo Matte finish varnish to prevent wear. :)

I have plans for about 2 more - a Jackson 'Thriller' zombie (with the sunken eyes), and another, more decayed looking one. Once my workbench is cleared, I'll be working on those next.

Thanks TNC. The world needs more zombie toys.

Thanks Renmauzo, on both accounts. I don't know how anyone can spend hours making a custom, only to post a poor picture of it. I made a custom light box from a cardboard box, bristol board, and 3 sheets of tracing paper to diffuse lamp light. Works like a charm. ^_^

The zombie duo that you've done here are great, and the pictures that you've taken are fantastic. Keep up the great work!
