"Handyman Grant" Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:36628  
Name:"Handyman Grant"
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Hammer of the Gods  
Date Added:February 8, 2012
Base Figure:Various WWE
Height:7.00 inches
My best friend from Jr. High saw my work on the Realm and asked if I'd make him a custom figure of himself. He wanted a superhero version of his day job as a repairman. I had him send some reference pics and got to work. The recipe is a combo of WWE figures and accessories from various figures that were modified. I lucked into a WWE head that I was able to alter to get a pretty close facial match and the tattoo work helps sell it as "Grant". Had fun with the tools and tiny pencil and Sharpie pen in his overall pocket. the female face on the mug is a picture of his wife. I'm really happy with the finished product and more important, Grant absolutely loved it.
