General 'Thunderbolt' Ross Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:32600  
Name:General 'Thunderbolt' Ross
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Green Skin  
Date Added:September 8, 2011
Base Figure:Off Duty Apollo
Height:6.00 inches
I thought it was such a great idea to turn an off duty Apollo into a General Ross, and then I found out halfway into it that it's basically the only character an off duty Apollo gets turned into. Still makes me giggle a little thinking about it.

To start I sanded the from pockets down a bit and resurfaced them with some Aves. Then I sculpted on his medals and name tag, also using Aves. I used some cord from the craft store to expand his belt into a full harness and added some pouches to finish it off. The stars on his collar and hat are actually pins that I inserted after drilling small holes for them.

The head is from a Kraven with the mouth area tweaked a bit. Originally he had a removeable hat, but it looked too clunky so I opted to sculpt on directly onto the head. Then I thickened his mustache to proper old man levels.

I thought he could use a gun that looked like it might actually hurt the Hulk, so I made him a big energy cannon using a Bazooka from a ROC Baroness and a rifle from a SAW Viper. The pistol is a cast, and the assault rifle is a cast with a strap added.

Straight up awesome! I think you got a good look to your version, and the face hits on Romita jr's world war hulk version of ross! The face sculpt and uniform modifications are wicked! Great stuff!

It's funny you mention that, Romita's WWH Ross is what I used for reference. Glad you noticed!
