The Red Skull Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:30798  
Name:The Red Skull
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Shinobitron  
Date Added:July 5, 2011
Base Figure:DCD Superman
Height:6.50 inches
I originally bought this DCD Superman figure just for the Christopher Reeve head so I could do a quick headswap on a DCU Supes body for my own collection. Then I had this body left over with not really too many ideas. I was going through my extra heads on it and Red Skull was the winner! I've been wanting to make one for awhile and with the Cap movie coming soon, I figured there is no better time.

Base-DCD Superman
Head-Redskull
Hands-Boromir, DCD Riddler
Everything else was either sculpt or random fodder.
Completely new paint job (believe it or not,lol) except the boots. I really liked the original colors of the figure, so I kept close to those as I thought it fit ol' skull head.

Fixed the head, cause I didn't like the gaping mouth. Heated it up then glued top and bottom teeth. Cosmic cube was dremmeled down from a IM blast and the long cigarette is a piece of styrene. And my favorite part of all was a Hydra symbol decal I got from a Cap Megabloks kit. It saved so much time, lol.

Thanks for looking!

From the many reeves customs out there there are so many of these lying around waiting for a good idea for them to be used! Good use of a figure base nobody has really used yet so many have! This fits great and looks wicked. Sharp work!

Looks great! That base figure is such a great sculpt wish the legs had a little more articulation
evanjones1 - Tuesday, July 5, 2011
Wow, this is great! I think the articulation is fine. I've never seen Red Skull as a guy who would be doing backflips. Really solid work.
Bob-A-Ferret - Tuesday, July 5, 2011
I second the last comment that is one wonderful RedSkull shy of perfection in articulation only
