Base Figure:Xpac Body with Rene Dupree Head
Height:6.00 inches
Here is my Challenge Custom for an original Tygra concept. I issued the challenge and Darthomas accepted and those the subject. I took a military take on the Tygra character as he is an architech and scientist. I sculpted the hair/mane over a
WWE RA Rene Dupree head and attached to an Xpac body that already had the zip up jacket and camo pants with the military boots. I used the bare arms of another wrestling figure so they didn't have the jacket sleeves on them. I sculpted the feet on top of the boots to make them look like they were coming out of the boot. I liked this part of the original Tygra and wanted to keep it as well as the little piece of armor on his shoulder. The figure was painted head to toe, I painted the new camo colors on top of the original green/tan/brown camo. I make his whip from a piece of plastic used to make bracelets. I used beads for the end pieces and made a handle from epoxy then repainted the beads and epoxy.

I really enjoyed making this custom and was really pleased to see it finished. Comments plz and questions welcomed.

Thanks guys, This was a challenging custom in that I'm not really fond of Tcats. I stuck to the classic look of Tygra with a few tweaks after researching old Tygra figures.

Your competitor had a better idea of base body, quite brilliant... but he didn't pull off the classic look! I like yours cuz it's the classic look! Good Job! Nice whip, as well as the jacket and head which are the best parts!! 1
