I wanted a whistler figure that better matched the detail of my other blade figures. The torso and legs were ok, but the sculpt on everything else was just so... Blah. I'd seen a few people on here use a ml bearded sentry head, but, even with gray hair, he still looked too young and stoic. I wanted to find a head that captured that grizzled old man appearance. I picked out a balrog battle gandolf and dremmeled the beard way down. The neck and arms came from a tna sharkboy. The hands didn't hold the shotgun too well, so I put one tiny magnet in his hand and another in the stock of the gun. He still just has old school basic articulation in the hips and knees, but I cut off the old boots and, using screws for pegs, gave him some more articulated boots from a tna christian. I did salvage the old whistler's boot knife and sheathe and painted them to match the new boots. And just for fun, I also made him a serum injector from a star trek phaser and the end of an x2 cyclops' clear nightstick painted with clear red. Cute, huh? Hope you all like it.

Yeah. I was really proud of that pose. I've got all these extra props in attempt to recreate Whistler's workshop. But the photo composition really goes to Crimson Vampire. He held the camera and it's his mini studio.

I love this, he looks great, maybe a darker wash on the skin to make him look a little dirtier would look good,but I think he looks great as is
