This is my second attempt at a fully sculpted figure... Be kind... I started with a ML Grey Hulk as the base and my merry fingers did the rest.. Still learning about facial feature but all in all it was a successful project in my eyes.......The great thing about this figure is that it was a originally a figure that i had messed up( i melted it too much in the oven when i was making it into a Rulk. But I remembered rule number one: NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY>>> YOU CAN USE IT LATER))

Character BIO:

Leonard Williams was the mentor to a young Bruce Banner and they worked on the super soldier formula. As Leonard he relied on crutches to walk but after transforming he became the powerful and violent gangster "Tyrone Cash."
In the Ultimate universe, Leonard Williams was a professor at Cambridge University and a family man with a wife and children but due to disability he relied on the aid of crutches to walk. Cambridge is where he worked with a young Bruce Banner. They worked together in order to create a super soldier formula it is said Williams taught Bruce "everything he knows." During this time, he became Bruce's "mentor" and allegedly taught Banner "everything he knows." In an unexplainable occurrence in Williams several people are killed but Leonard cannot be found, from then on he was considered a missing person.

Leonard Williams became the first Hulk and lives as "Tyrone Cash." Unlike Bruce Banners Hulk, Tyrone Cash still retains his intellect and self control. The years he was "missing" he was actually being monitored by SHIELD, while he was "murdering and pillaging his way through Africa and Asia." Now, 16 years after the accident Leonard Williams "perished" in, Tyrone Cash resides in South America living as a ruthless gang lord. In order to draft Williams/Cash Nick Fury sends War Machine to retrieve him. Tyrone starts whaling on War Machine after he tried being nice and reminding him who he really is. During their fight Tyrone shows how powerful he is and how truly sadistic and ruthless he has become. Tyrone plucks a one man plane from and uses it as a weapon, he has no remorse for killing the pilot or the others on his island. He threatens to quickly rebuild his "crime empire" if War Machine ruins his, he only stops fighting after War Machine says, "We'll tell your wife and kid you're still live."

You can not tell me that is not a cool backstory.. man I love the Ultimate Universe...
added a reference shot.. but the real reason I made this custom was for the ring.. I mean a five finger ring.. please who won't jump at a chance to make that???

As always comments are welcome

LOL.. Thanks for the detailed comment. But that is why I love the Ultimate world. It give us a different perspective on the the Marvel Universe. That is the reason most of us started reading Marvel.. As Stan Lee always said( paraphrasing )" I wanted to create characters with real world problems.. they would be just like us and have the same problems we have..but the only difference is that they had powers".. I mean everyone who gets powers doesn't want to run off and put on a costume.. or take over the world.. Some people would just be opportunists...
But this was my first attempt at a facial sculpture. and thanks making the accessories was the best part.. HulK BLINGBy the way.. just look over your work... great sculpting .. maybe I can hit up your some pointers...

Cool figure here, the accessories help to really sell it! But as for what you said: "You can not tell me that is not a cool back story..." NO SERIOUSLY I CAN... that is lame dude. I agree the Ultimate universe is cool and all, but this is just clusterf#@k of what is wrong with comics, just like Ultimatum where they killed off most of the marvel Ultimate universe.
But don't get me wrong, still cool work here! Nice work on a rare figure, you may even has an internet first here?
