Okay--so Stevid prompted this from me-my first attempt at using these wrestler bodies-and I must say I'm impressed!

These were four bucks clearance at the local Target, so I picked a couple up. Don't know who this is 'cause I don't really follow wrestling. Anyway, simple work here-I sculpted his face to 'chisel' out his rounded cheeks. Next I sculpted hair, the chest emblem (which was not easy), collar, boots, and gloves. The belt is a cut piece of rubberized plastic scarf from the NECA Ninja Gaiden I used as a Batman. The cape is cut-and-sealed cloth and holds poses.

He looks like a big A$$ Russian to me--critique away!!

where do you buy fabric sealer??

You can get it at JoAnn's, dude. It's a small clear bottle with a blue cap. Make sure you store it upright, or it can dry in the tube like glue. If it does, use the sharp end of a safety pin to poke through it from the opening.

Very cool figure, love all the sculpting and that you used a wrestling figure to make this. Painting is really clean and smooth and the cape is fantastic too. You are one of my favorite customizers on FR.

Looks freaking awesome bro! BTW how do you get the cloth cape to stick?
fitzjedi - Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Thanks for looking. Cut the cloth to the shape you want. Seal the edges with a fabric sealer-this hardens the edges and helps posing. After the fabric sealer is dry, put the whole cape into a glass of water till it soaks and quickly remove. Place the cape, completely open, onto a hand towel-fold it over the cape and press it down to soak out the water from the cloth. It will be damp. While it's damp, use superglue (I use loc-tite) to attach it to the back near the neck. Try to use tweezers or some other tool-if you touch it with your finger you will glue your finger. Depending on the look, I may fold the outer edges over near the neck line to hold that edge's crease. Because the cape is wet, you won't get the glue turning white as it dries like you will if you just glue it on dry. To add creases/folds to the cape, make the folds and lay the figure down on his back on top of the cape,for a few minutes and then pick him up--the folds will be just enough to stay as the cape air dries. Has worked EVERY single time for me. Hope this helps!

Awesome! the WWE figures are good for a base. They just mostly have stupid lace boots

very cool, almost sinister looking Supes. Don't remember him being QUITE so...hard/cold/evil in the Comics, but impossing none the less.

Bad@ss-especially that last pic!

Awesome to see Red Son using the Wrestler buck. It really suits the figure well Only suggestion I`d give is make sure the eyebrows peak just to the side of the iris - otherwise the arc falls short of the eye, leaving Kal looking like he had an accident with mom's tweezers. ^_0
