Captain Bucky O'hare Custom Action Figure

Custom #:38778  
Name:Captain Bucky O'hare
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Bucky O'Hare
Date Added:April 30, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC Negative man
Height:7.50 inches
Completion Time:28.00 hours
Articulation:26 points
So like i said in the workstation, i've been wanting to give this guy a crack since i first joined the realm and noticed there was only 3 entries into the Bucky O'Hare category. I wanted to go away from my usual style and try something else. So I went for a cartoon style. It was quite nerve racking adding the black lines after doing all the layers of paint he needed. There are a few lines that went wrong but overall i'm pretty pleased with him. Here's the recipe.

Base = DCUC Negative man, torso, arms and legs re-sculpted for that spacesuit look.

Head = Vintage Bucky O'Hare, ears shaved down and foam for the ear cuffs. It just sits over the head of a DCUC Dr.Midnite.

Collar = sculpted, stars are the mives old earrings.

Stars on epalletes = cut out from a fancy watch strap.

Epalettes and cloak = vintage Bucky, sculpt to blend.

Upper gloves = Vintage Bucky, sculpt to blend.

lower gloves = Sculpted.

Hands = ML Beta ray Bill.

Belt = Sculpted some random tube for the raised bits.

Lower legs = DCUC Firestorm, sculpted boots.

Feet = DCUC Firestorm, sculpted over with foam for the treads.

Gun = Unsure, maybe transformers.

Painted with the usual Games workshop paints, diluted and multiple coats. Sealed with superglue and Satin sealer.

Had a blast trying this new style and I do have plans to do a few more at some point. Thanks for looking and hope you like.

This is awesome! Way better than the original figure of the 90's! I loved this show!

There really aren't enough Bucky O'Hare customs. This looks like it jumped right out from a comic panel. I really like the paint style you went with on him and nice use of the TF gun too!

I couldn't agree more, I'd love to see others take him on and the rest of the crew. I thought this paint style would be easier than my usual style..........I was wrong

Holy crap this is great, I actually have the same thing on my table...not finished!
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Yours will be E.P.I.C, I'm hoping you'll get him finished, cheers for the comment, and I know you're not a dude so dudette

Love it!

Thankyou mate, appreciate it

Look at his little fluffy bunny-tail! Awesome job buddy! I think his cape could be a bit long so you can see it from the front, but thats a minor, minor nitpick.. Fantastic looking figure!!!
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Cheers bud, I did try a longer cloak on him but it just didn't look right, I kinda like the tiny cape, like it's purely for decorative purposes.

Mutants and Aliens and Toads beware. This is one Funky Fresh Rabbit! You knocked this one into S.P.A.C.E..How do I even begin to express my affinity for this character? You sir have created yet another magnum opus for a character line. A customizing pièce de résistance! There is certainly no righteous indignation here but may result in a komplex for us less talented customizers!

This comment made me chuckle so much I nearly entered another dimension in another time and space. I just hope that my proton accelerator doesn't break a bit whilst the parallel dimension falls on it's face. at least the animal adventurer from S.P.A.C.E will emerge from the chaos . OK not as good as your efforts but I tried.

darth this is museum quality work. I have to say this is just so epic and spot on awesome. you just keep raising the bar with this spectacular work.
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Dunno if he's old enough to go in a museum just yet but maybe 1000 years in the future when someone digs him up, maybe they'll think we all used to be giant green rabbits

Nahice!! Really sharp work man! The whole thing really pops!
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Cheers bud, I love the way he looks on display but I need to make some others just so they can stand out more.

Thank you! GEEZE! I can't sum up how wonderful this is. Thank you for the nostalgic eye candy! Now the theme song is stuck in my head, I just streamed the first episode the other day!
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Haha, me too, I haven't watched half of it yet but I will, I beleive there's a DVD boxset available too. The tunes well and truly lodged in my bonce too, been singing it for the past two weeks

Superb job man! I love the "cell-shaded" cartoon look. Make Toadborg and I can quit this hobby, a happy, happy man. Awesome custom, my friend.
Darththomas - Sunday, May 6, 2012
Cheers dude, maybe someday I will tackle toad borg but I don't wanna make you quit . I'm thinking ML Buzzing beetle would make a great base.
