Exiles Holocaust Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:31508  
Name:Exiles Holocaust
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:CaptainRon  
Date Added:August 1, 2011
Base Figure:DCUC Trigon
Height:8.00 inches
This is a slightly different look than the Build-A-Figure Nemesis / Holocaust.

I choose the Trigon base for its size and clean sculpt. It was pretty easy to build up from with Apoxie. I went for the Darkseid Arms for their girth. Joining the two were somewhat of a challenge that almost resulting in me jamming a screw driver through my hand. With a little convincing, the two went together rather nicely.

The skeleton is the most controversial portion of the figure. It ended up a little more Mignola-esque than I was planning. Not horrible for a scratch made head. At least for my skills. The customer requested the floating burning stuff in the helmet, so that helps to cover up some of the sculpting.

The upper body armor was a treat. Trying to build the raisers and have the clear dome fit over it correctly took some seriously trial and error. Once in place though, I think it blended together rather nicely. Lots of layered sculpting all around. There is no removing that puppy now.

I detest painting yellow. White and yellow are the hardest colors, I swear. There are probably 6 rounds of dry brushing and washes on the puppy. The customer also had me paint some of the parts more metallic to more accurately capture the figures style. Check out my Flickr page for those pics.

In general, the figure was a lot of work but pretty fun to boot. Interested in hearing your thoughts.

Thanks guys!

-Ron

Excellent that is an extremely well made figure. If I where to change anything it would be I would have made the cavity with the skeleton watertight and filled the cavity with yellow colored water with a couple og red gelatin beads to make the effect of the cavity. but that is me LOL It looks wonderful and I have to say it is the best holocaust custom I have seen thus far.
