Earth-2 Eradicator Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:30177  
Name:Earth-2 Eradicator
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Direct
Creator:manomight1974  
Date Added:June 11, 2011
Base Figure:DC Direct Return of Superman Series Eradicator
Height:6.25 inches
This is number 19 in my series of Earth-2 Superman fan fiction. This character is the Earth-2 Eradicator, essentially the same character as the one that appeared in the comics, but with an Earth-2 flair to him.

Again, this figure was a pretty straight forward custom. I took the Eradicator figure and replaced the chest and cape symbols with ones designed to look like the Earth-2 symbol (these were designed big like the John Byrne era Superman symbol of the 1980's...however, the chest symbol was trimmed slightly to fit the existing chest symbol/shield). Next, I used Milliput to create the boots. Once the Milliput had dried, I used my Dremel to sand the new boots smooth, then repainted them in black, and TA-DA...the Earth-2 Eradicator!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. Was a bit of work, but definitely worth it.

Dude, he looks way more bad a$$ w/ the boots and the symbol looks a lot cleaner than the original. Well played sir!

Thanks. I thought for the Earth-2 version, he needed to look tougher, and trust me, the symbol was not as easy to create as it looks, but it came out absolutely great.

I know the frustration that it takes to make something look that clean. You can tell that you put a lot of painstaking time into outlining the symbol. You should be very proud!

It wasn't so much the outlining of the symbol that was the painstaking part, as I have SEVERAL templates that I use for symbols...the painstaking part here was trimming the symbol properly to fit in the area of the existing chest shield. I am proud of the work I put in, and I'm glad that someone else noticed it. Thanks.
