Happy Holidays figure-lovers.
I never got a chance to buy the mattycollector set of Romat-Ru and Karu-Sil. Not to mention how expensive it is to get them on the secondary market.
Not to worry.
I took a DC Direct Tomar-Re figure (the one that came out in the early 2000's) and removed its head. I then had to 'exacto-knife' the neck off. Then dremel and sand the underside of the head so that it would sit perfectly on the DCUC Sinestro Corps neck. Once the hard part was over, I painted both the Tomar-Re head and the Maash hands. I tried to somewhat match the paint scheme of the mattycollector Romat-Ru, but then went crazy and added some reds to give him a bit of an exotic effect.
I love the way he came out. I'll take a crack at Karu-Sil one of these days.
Completed July 2011.
Thanks for looking, folks.
:)

This looks like a lot of fun building a Green Lantern Army.

Definitely is, my friend! One of the main reasons I initially got into customizing was to grow my Lantern armies.

I finally got mine on the secondary market instead of making a custom. I managed to get him at a good price. Just took a look at mine and compared him to yours. You did a great job. I mean yours looks like it could have been made by DC also.

Thanks brother. I eventually want to make a Karu-sil...need to find the right base body though.

Thanks aussiedcfan.
It's actually a really good sculpt that with some love, attention and paint can come out really nice.

Those Yellow Eyes are amazing. Best Romat Ru because of how detailed that face looks.

Thanks toxinvenom.
I actually made the eyes smaller than how it's painted from factory to give him more of an evil look...

I agree. Far better than the one we got from the manufacturers.
