Bishop Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:36408  
Name:Bishop
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Shinobitron  
Date Added:January 31, 2012
Base Figure:Grayson Hunt
Height:7.00 inches
This is another character I've been wanting to tackle out of the Grayson Hunt body. Basically I followed the same steps as I did with my recent Cable from this base since these two were both being worked on at the same time. Whatever I didn't use with Cable went to Bishop here. I saw a pic on the internet with Bishop when trying to do a little research on deciding how I wanted him to look. The pic showed him with dreads, mesh under his armor, looked really just PO'ed and had a crapton of weapons on him. So I used that pic as a "guideline" I guess in making this Bishop but I also threw on my spin as well while trying to stay true to the 90's color scheme. I really wanted to make him with dreads so that was a definite, but I also had the ML bald version so I decided to make those interchangeable. Anyways on to the recipe:

Head(s): D Von Dudley (Undertakers hair, Bionic Commando's dreads, & Sculpt for anything else) Alt: ML bald Bishop (repaint)
Body: Grayson Hunt (Changed lower legs from the other Hunt to give the more pants type look)
Shoulder Armor: Gears of War, DCD Armory Bats
Everything else was cobbled together from the fodder bins for accessories

Then another very intricately detailed paint job later, we have ourselves Bishop!

Thanks for Looking!

Also a very special thanks to everyone for all the feedback on any of my recent customs! I've not had a lot of time to respond to much lately, but I really do appreciate all of it! Thanks again everyone & keep up the great work!

With storylines, and concepts so similar, of course this great figure base for cable would be a perfect fit for bishop! Great job the fine detail in the paints is an example of it's amazing quality in the work. Another shin classic!
