Thought i'd try a Tommy Jarvis custom, one of Jason's main arch enemies in the Friday films, i suppose a "Mouth" action figure from "THE GOONIES" could be ideal for a Corey Feldman incarnation of the character but i like the Thom Mathews version the best (a cool actor of the 80's) from my personal best Friday films "JASON LIVES" although the gore factor is tame compared to previous Friday's, i like the Alice Cooper soundtrack, and the ending sequence with Jason and Tommy battling in the lake, but that's just me, anyway modified an action man by cutting the shins and using putty to lengthen the legs and sawed just under the shoulders and wrist taking away the middle section of the arms and replacing with different arms with a bit more articulation and joined together using putty, re-sculpted the head and feet then came the painful part of the process sewing all the clothes together especially the jacket as i had to add another piece of material to the inner part, added the brace using a piece of elastic, painted accordingly and added a piece of aluminum which was then glued on to the top of the jeans as you can just about see in the first pic.

ACCESSORIES

SHOVEL: a pen cut at the top and bottom then added a piece of weapon from a ninja turtle figure as the handle and dremeled some plastic into shape for the other end.

PETROL CAN: piece of a puncture repair case, cut in half then filled in with putty and bits and dabs added to the overall effect, painted red with acrylic and dry brushed with a bit of silver.

CHAIN AND ROCK: using a real stone which was shaped almost like the rock used in the film then secured with a chain using bendy wires to tie the chain together and looped at the other end to fit around Jason's neck.

the Jason mask is only for the picture shot, but i made a base as seen in the last pic using two pieces of flat board cut equally, using one piece i cut into several pieces then glued them all on to the other board and used a marker pen cut into three pieces then glue gunned underneath the flat board then painted brown,
and that's your lot,-- oh and remember ,

"You better do as she say's, cos wherever the red dot goes, your bang".
