As far as I can tell this is a figure realm debut for this character, I have searched the tcat section and performed a search of the whole site to check and I'm amazed no one has attempted such a big character. I was quite ambitious on this one but think it turned out great, well anyway, onto the recipe:

1. Took a deluxe aggression figure and cut of the top of his abdomen and neck. 2. Did the same to a dr. Who werewolf figure then glued onto the wrestler
3. Cut legs off wrestler and werewolf then attached wolf legs to wrestler thighs
4. Used some foam to fill the gaps between wolf and wrestlers necks then sculpted over
5. Sculpted over the gaps between the two different figures legs
6. Glued various bits of hair from other wrestlers onto the neck and shoulders
7. Sculpted over the glued on hair to blend out the joins
8. Made the shoulder pad and straps from a leather dog collar and an old rhino shoulder
9. Glued a jewel onto the mddle and surrounded with a twistie tie
10. Made the belt from the same dog collar
11. Glued some bits of cut up pillow case to the belt in layers
12. Made wrist guard out of a knee pad of the wrestler
13. Club made from a foam ball cut up and painted (not keen on club and might make new one)
14. Dremmeled down some of the joints to stop paint rub
15. Painted with gw paints and glue shielded some of the joints

I know it's in fifteen steps but it was much more difficult than that and took about three to four weeks to complete. I think the effort was well worthwhile and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. More starwars customs coming soon!!!

Cheers bud, it's great to get comments on an old one. He actually suffers pretty bad paint rub on his shoulders nowadays, he was done before I knew how to stop it and I keep meaning to fix it up but there's just so many more projects to be done.
