Red Skull (Classic Costume) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:38254  
Name:Red Skull (Classic Costume)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Whiskeytango  
Date Added:April 10, 2012
Base Figure:WW2 Cap
Height:6.00 inches
Up next is one that i think has been done before, and i know a lot of people have said Hasbro should do. I definitely agree, cause they'd probably use a better head than i did. I saw BA had this abin sur head available in his one offs, and since i had a WW2 Cap just sitting around, i thought i'd give it a shot. I re-sculpted the brow and cheek bones to protrude more, but in the end, it still looks a little too thin and just not much like old Johann. Turns out just painting a skull red does not a Red Skull make. Oh well, i like him fine. Got to take some fun pics with Bucky. I painted his head white then covered it in red ink to make it seem kind of like there's some goo or blood or something still on it. Mixed some red ink with the blood red to paint his arm band too, but i think i didn't let it cure long enough before playing with it, because in the last pic you can see where its rubbed off a little on the band and his face. Oh well.

On a side note... i never get any more comfortable painting swastikas

I was going to post a Red Skull yesterday, until I saw this and thought how awesome it was! That Abin Sur head was a great idea. I have one that I either want to use for a mummy figure, or a zombie. Either way the work you put into it has that classic skull look to go with the old school suit! Nice work.
I also had issue with painting the Nazi symbol on my figure so I skipped it altogether, maybe I'll drop a Hydra one on it later.
It's funny how well a classic Cap works for a Red Skull. I guess they both are super soldiers after all.
Whiskeytango - Wednesday, April 11, 2012
haha, yeah, it probably would have been in better taste to just do a hydra symbol. Doesn't it seem sacrilegious to use a Cap to make a Red Skull? I don't feel good about that either.
pulpyfiction - Wednesday, April 11, 2012
LoL! Yeah, it is a strange thought to think that a cap went into making a Red Skull! Strangely enough though, tons of heroes are at fault for making their villains in the comic scene. Bats is to blame for the joker, Supes caused Lex to loose his hair and frustrate him into an evil genius, and Hulk is to blame for the whole damn gamma universe!
On the other hand, I saw somebody do a 3.75" Cap with Indiana Jones Nazi parts. You should of seen how many posts attacked the guy about using Nazi parts! I guess there's a double standard with the opposite situation, because I have seen Red Skull's done with Cap in all sorts of scales, and nobody ever says anything about that... weird!
I forgot to mention, for a troubled hand (by the subject matter previously discussed), the symbol is still nice and clean!

thanks J!

Cool, I like it, but if you made him more nose-less (donno how it's right in eng.) it would look more skullish and it would be perfect than. But I don't have those skills you have, so big respect, like it a lot. ;-)
Bartowski - Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Aha! Maybe it's classic costume w/ ultimate head?
Whiskeytango - Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Thanks. I think he's about as nose-less as you can get actually. I think its the lips and ears that are throwing the look off. As it stands, I think he kind of looks like if the artists start to base the Red Skull face off of how Hugo Weaving looked in the movie.

Great work
Whiskeytango - Wednesday, April 11, 2012
thanks shin! Have I ever mentioned how much I like your avatar? Raziel should have traded in the soul reaver for caps shield in the game.
