greeeeeeetings realmlings, hope all is well with my fellow nerds! this guy was made for my buddy brian to go with his savage dragon figure, and i can now say thanks to brian for i am now a very informed new fan of the dragon and his friends and enemies!anyways this guy took a lot of time to make but i had a blast every minute working on them,i started with a planet hulk, dremeled off his sides and re-sculpted to try and get the "larsen" art style of tiny waists and huge everything else,which i like(he is a great artist imo) used a things hands and filled in all the cracks and smoothed it out.i tried something different with the ball joints on his legs,i curved them so they would look more natural and match the waist style more.for the legs i used first app hulk (galactus wave) and totally re-sculpted them.the head is also 100 percent sculpted,the fire blasts on his boots are hot glue and can be taken off easily,i made a couple bases that are not pictured and a big gun(not done with it yet) too.i feel like i'm forgetting to mention something even though i just typed a freaking novel,you cant see in the photos too well but he has bullet holes and machete cuts on his body and mostly on his gloves and boots,like he has been blocking dragons blows while whooping that a$$....i hope you guys like it and i really hope brian does!thanks for looking to all you cool cats and GLORY TO THE MOST HIGH!im outty 5000......oh yeah and man you guys have been pumping out some awesome AWESOME customs lately, man i love this site...and i want tacos....and hair growth serum but that's off topic...more pics on my facey book page!(UPDATED WITH PICS OF HIS WEAPONS)

Great day in the morning! I remember this guy from the 90's! It is perfect and definitely a gold standard custom! The head sculpt is amazing! Those ears and antennae! WOW! I love the battle damage and the vibrant colors. The boot jets, that is some sick hot glue work! I can't ever get mine to look like that! looks just like little flames! Way to go, man! You really aced this big boy!
dbocustoms - Saturday, March 3, 2012
thanks brother! if you got yours to look like that(hot glue...or anything for that matter!) it would be a huge downgrade for you,I seriously dream of one day being half as good as you,your work is incredible,and thats an understatement

Bro I thank you for hooking me up with such a sweet custom of this guy. I'm a huge vanguard and dragon fan. Your making my collection look awsome remind me to put u on my Christmas list I may be able to send you the hair growing spray I use. I think it's made of shoe polish and rogaine. Thanks again dbo can't wait to see the next one were doing but well keep it under wraps bro god bless
