Ah, 8-Ball... What can you say about this guy that hasn't already been said? He's got an 8-ball for a head! Who can't love this character?!?!
Anyway, I made this figure from a DCUC Riddler (Series 16) with the hands from a HML Punisher attached and blended into the forearms. I tore out the belt and filled in the stomach with epoxie putty. The head is just a ping-pong ball with a hole cut in it to accommodate the neck. After that, the whole thing was painted by hand (including the "face.") I used Testor's Dullcoat to seal the body and Testor's Glosscoat to seal the head. I love the results-- the varnish on the head is beautiful!
I'd been working on 8-Ball's pool cue rifle with a removable blast but it just wasn't happening. I'm still happy with him, though. He looks about as nice as I could have imagined. What I really wish now is that he'd be the villain in a movie so Hasbro could make life-sized, talking replicas of his helmet I could wear around the house! Oh yeah!
Once again, sorry about the single picture. The "new" Showcase format will never let me submit more than one. Anyone else have this problem? Advice?
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think,
