The Prowler Custom Action Figure
The Prowler is a cool character that's never been given a chance to reach his full potential. Created by Stan Lee as a "human" Spider-Man, Hobie Brown didn't have powers but instead relied on his wits, courage and the ability to work with what was around him. He made his window-washing rig into a suit that enabled him to go toe-to-toe with Spidey - that's one heck of a first chapter! Sadly, the character has been pretty underdeveloped since. Like many great customs of this character, my Prowler is based on a Marvel Legends Black Panther body. I go off-script with some crazy '90's style fingerblades courtesy of a DC Direct AzBat. Not much good in real life but we sure loved 'em, didn't we, kids? His wrist-blasters are a random strap of machine-gun bullets turned backwards so the round ends are showing. The gloves are made with GreenStuff. Instead of doing something sensible and using a Spawn head, I attempted an Eric Larson-esque sculpt. He ended up looking more like Platypus Man but I can at least say he's unique! Cape from ML Taskmaster. Gloves, boots and mask sculpted with GreenStuff. Painted with Citadel Colors - Liche and Warlock Purples, Orchide Shade, Scorpion Green, Chaos Black and some Model Color Metal Medium for that armored look.
