Tennessee Titans Ken Amato #58 Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:35580  
Name:Tennessee Titans Ken Amato #58
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:NFL
Creator:NeCrollector  
Date Added:January 1, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC Lex Luthor
Height:6.50 inches
Thanks to Mattel's TRU Skeletor/Lex Luthor 2-pack, I'm sure I'm not the only one with extra Lex Luthors lying around.
:)
My good buddy Paul's brother plays for the Tennessee Titans. He's Ken Amato (#58) and is a really good guy all around. I thought what better Christmas gift than a customized futuristic/alternate universe version of a Tennessee Titans Ken Amato. Especially after looking at the Lex Luthor figure and thinking how perfect this base figure would be for a futuristic football player.
I carefully 'exacto-knifed' the chest logo that the original figure comes with and sanded it down. I gave the entire figure a coat of gray, then blues and blacks, then went crazy with dry-brushing. I detailed the figure with lots of water-slide decals of Tennessee Titans logos and NFL logos. The helmet is from a Hasbro Iron Man figure. The underside of the helmet was made for a bigger peg, so I filled it up with Aves Apoxie (My first time using it. Thanks Jin Saotome for your awesome tutorial on your website on how to use Apoxie . You rock, man!). Once it dried up, I "dremelled" a smaller hole so that it fits snugly on the Luthor figure.
Completed December 31st, 2011.
Thanks for looking, folks.
Happy New Year!
:)

Absolutely fantastic! This concept and execution is amazing- your paint work and excellent custom decals set this apart.
Damn, you could- and should!- make more of these for other teams. I'm not a football fan, but I think the Steelers color scheme would rock with this concept.
Great job, man!

Thanks, again, brother. It's great to hear from you.
I may revisit this concept in the future. It was really fun to work on.
I really appreciate your feedback.

It's a real treat to read feedback from you.
Thank you for your humbling words.

Thanks RRC,
I admire your work a lot and it's a real treat to get feedback from you.

Lots of hours and TLC went into this guy, but it sure was a lot of fun.

I really like this one a lot! Check out my SENTINEL of STEEL custom on here and tell me what you think. I had this idea of turning all the NFL teams into heroes, but only made it to the STEELERS and Cardinals so far. I like your TITAN concept figure...looks great man! We should get a few guys interested in finishing the rest of the teams. I have a good idea for a few of them.

Thanks fastfreddie,
Coming from you means a lot to me as I've admired your work throughout 2011.
I did see your Sentinel of Steel and thought it was an incredible custom.
Perhaps FigureRealm could make an NFL Heroes Custom Contest. We could really finish the rest of the teams that way.

By the way, I love the way you paint your customs dude. You're a true artist.

Thank you so much G Brand.

Coming from you it's a great compliment.
Congratulations on winning the Thundercats Ho! custom contest.
Your Lion-O was out of this world!
I've been eyeing your customs, dude, and you're definitely one to watch...truly inspiring work.

Yeah, I thought the same thing as I was working on it. It does have a bit of that football robot feel to it.
