I gotta admit, I've loved this character since I was a kid and first read the mini-series. Yeah, he's a bit goofy looking and a rip-off of the Punisher (including his origin). But there was always something about his look (the mask, the camo, the colors, the laughing dog) that I found appealing. I've always wanted a figure of Wild Dog since I was a kid but was a bit intimidated by all the work a custom would involve. But when I saw the Young Justice Sportsmaster figure I knew it was time to try him.

So this one was a true labor of love, and took probably the most time of any custom I've ever attempted. The logo alone took over three hours and I had to stop for the night when I started getting cross-eyed from staring at it (while he looked back laughing at me!). Add my first attempt at camouflage, sculpting a mask on top of Sportsmasters to look more like a old-school goalie mask, the sleeves, etc, and this took a lot of work. But I love him! The legs and head are from the YJ Sportsmaster, the chest and shoulders are from a DCUC Alan Scott, while the arms are just your standard DCUC arms. Hope you guys like him, I know he may not be high on a lot of lists, but that's why I chose him, lol.

I don't know the character but it looks exactly as the comic. The logo is insane and I love the camo look. Great job!!!

Yeah, I thought there might be folks who never heard of him and thought the comic would make a great backdrop. Thanks!

One of my all time favorites! Old School. How did you do the symbol on his chest? I'm going to put him as my figure of the week on my site, ACCustomFigures dot com. Good stuff!

Thanks, guys. The logo is all hand painetd, which is why it took me forever to do. I painted in the red first, then outlined it with black. After a few tries, I was happy with how it looked and painted in the details and sharpened up the edges with the blue. Took a whole night of work, about 2 to 3 hours.
