Hi all-I've been away from this site for a few months now and indeed the Custom hobby as a whole as I have had some very bad personal problems-my wife passed away Jan 31st 2009 and I am trying to get things back together for myself and my children-
This custom has been sitting part finished on my desk for a while now and I am just starting to get back into the hobby. I have always found this hobby to be rewarding and fulfilling and I thought it was about time to try and tackle a custom again.
Pretty straight forward custom though-The Punisher -need I say more? He is and always has been one of my favourite characters and I wanted to do a figure that captured his rage and anger and also to see him in action. The scene is Frank loaded up for an assault and kicking in some lowlife's door and blasting them as we have seen him do so many times!
the figure is SOTA Street Fighter Guile with hair removed and re-moulded-actually I used this head on a previous Punisher custom figure I had made with alternative heads so no new work done to the face.
the body is just a straight repaint-I put on some kneepads from a wrestling figure,gave him a Punisher paint job and the accessories are as follows:
Assault Rifle, belt and leg pouches/holster and hands: Metal Gear Solid Figure
Surpressed Uzi-McFarlane Sarah Connor Figure
Bag-Jack Bauer 24 figure
Shotgun-????? Knock off
Base- Dusty Trail Swat Figure
Assault Rifle blast-ML War Machine.
Hope you like the figure-it represents a milestone for me and hopefully a return to a hobby I love.
Any comments/feedback ,etc are always appreciated
