I'm not a big fan of the Marvel Select Hulk, particularly for the atrocious head sculpt, the brutal paints, and the ridiculous articulation. Sorry if you love the factory release on this one, but I'm not. I did get my hands on one several months back for pretty cheap, and I had a couple of ideas for it. After seeing some customs using the select hulk, Raybot's specifically (if you haven't seen it check it out, his original head sculpt is crazy good!), I saw how there was some really good sculpting to the figure, and I wanted to take a crack at one.

So I took the solomon grundy head I had (I think it looks more like the 2008 movie hulk than the poor head sculpt put out by hasbro for the legends line), and I dremilled it to fit the massive select neck. I then went to town painting the whole thing anew! I used lots of dry brushed layers for the skin tones, and especially the jeans. I topped them off with a light white dry brushed layer to mimic denim. I also tipped the frayed areas in white to get that torn denim look seen in cutoffs.

Thanks for the views!

Thanks, and I know I've been really bad about those two spartacus customs!!! They are so close to being done, but I am really guilty of having waaaaay to much on the go at the workbench.

Thanks for taking the time to post realmers!
advocatepinoy - Thanks, I like looking at him on my shelf.
Galactape - Hey thanks, you know your Hulk so that means a lot!
AREZ - Thanks again my BAD AZZ brother from a custom mother!
Stevid - Thanks, with the large sized customs you've been working on, your nice comments are coming from an authority!
mbosky - I appreciate the sentiment, and I'm trying to kick my own butt into getting some posts on the go.
RedRebel - Thanks, I'm a big fan of the headsculpt, and I'm glad it fit in scale with this figure. I also was trying to have a green skin tone to be a little more in line with the 2008 incredible hulk film's version.
supersizeme - Thanks I don't know how that Select Hulk was released, it's so different stylistically than all other select releases, the paint being too glossy and splotchy was ridiculous, and I would like better articulation still! Thanks for the props, but I think you have a great customizing skill set as well! I'm still a huge fan of your Ragnaark the Plunderer custom!
Again as I stated in my comment in my fury custom, I have started a blog for my customs, if you are interested in checking that out, here's a link:

Wow, now that is a Hulk, perfect head for him. Way to cool

This how the MS Hulk should have looked. Grundy's head works really well for the Hulk and the paints are amazing. I wish I had half of your artistic abilities.
