A bit of an obscure choice, this version of Amon Sur appeared in the "Tales of the Sinestro Corps" comics. I started with Abin Sur (Amon's father), swapping out his forearms for the recenlty released Low/Maash figure's. I added SC Batman's hands, which required cutting off the peg and replacing it with small screws. The pegs on that Batman's hands were really long. I broke Abin down in order to repaint the inside of all the joints. I used vinyl-covered twist ties that I cut and glued on to his legs for the stripes. The design on the feet was altered because I didn't like the odd design he featured in the comics.

I mixed Silver and Clear Blue paints for the metallic blue on his forearms bracers. I used Cobalt Blue for the design on his torso. This costume features a glossy outline of the blue design. I used Semi-Gloss Black, but it didn't show up to well, so I may look into redoing it when I get some Glossy Black paint. Anyway, enjoy and check out my blog for more action figure fun!

Perhaps you could give me more info on how you fixed the pegs on his hands. It is a problem I am running into for Red Lanterns and Sinestro Corps customs.

$. Wow, how many more of these do you have! Awesome take on the costume, especially the details on the boots and lower legs.
