Hal Jordan: Last of the Green Lantern Corp. Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:28339  
Name:Hal Jordan: Last of the Green Lantern Corp.
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Green Lantern
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:March 25, 2011
Base Figure:DCUC Kyle Rayner
Height:6.00 inches
His battles hard fought, his victories many: Hal Jordan was the last of the Lanterns to fall. Now, the children of many sectors learn of Earth's mightiest human hero only in stories considered legend.

Recipe:
DCUC Kyle Rayner
DCUC Batman (Boots and resculpted forearms/right hand)
DCUC Walmart 5-pack Hal Jordan (head)
Acetone (any type from the hardware store - mine of "Home" brand)

While disassembling a DC Universe Kyle for this project (to make a black lower hands/feet GL) - I noticed something interesting: The Forearms and hands of the DCUC Kyle figure were cast at the factory in the same plastic as his sword construct accessory.

Using acetone and napkins (they have a finer grain to them, and leave less drag marks than paper towel or linen) - I wiped the factory paint off of left hand. (If you're using Acetone in a garage like I was, *use a good filter mask*: That stuff is so very toxic!)

To infer that and elderly Hal lost his hand in a battle long ago - I attached a stack of magnets to Hal's left construct-hand, and x2 within the hollowed out/resculpted Batman forearm, allowing for hand-less display, or different constructs later on. I also transplanted a GL ring on to the black right hand.

After sculpting over all the peg holes on this figure, I painted the black suit with Tamiya flat black, and his hair with various shades of white/gray - actually using the Alex Ross Superman as a visual reference. I sealed all the joints with liquid type Krazy glue (particularly the area that the sword-construct attaches to) the whole figure with Vallejo matte Varnish. The boots and gloves recieved an additional coat of Vallejo Glossy varnish.

If you turn the hand sideways, the sword accessory slots over top of any standard DCUC fist/arm.

this is a flawless execution and makes this awesome. have to ask since I have never seen the kyle fig is the hand accessory a slip over the hand/arm or is it open ended on the underneath? I just have to say again this is truly an awesome fig, great job.
