Alright, this may just be the best figure i've ever done. Certainly had some of the most work i've ever done put into it. I was lucky enough to find a DC Unlimited God of War Hades staction figure at FYE on clearance. If that hadn't happened, i never would have tackled this, cause that thing is too expensive to grab online. I also just happened to have some big body parts in my bin, so it all just kind of came together.

Top half is FO Hulk that i extended about 1/3", the crotch, upper legs to knees, and feet are from Maestro, and lower legs are from Abomination, and the head is a stealth venom shoulder joint. The helmet, weapons, hands, toes, and spikes (all 35 of 'em) are from the DC Unlimited figure. Pretty much the entire figure was sculpted over, since he's kind of a portly fellow, his skin has craters all over it, and a lot of open gaping wounds. I put magnets in his weapons so that chains can attach to them, and so the can attach to his chain belt. In the game, it seemed like when he threw them out the chains were attached to the back of his chain belt, so i put magnets close to them under his skirt so the chains on his hooks can pull off the in game look. He stands about 8.5" tall, maybe a little bit more.

This guys head also lights up, which is a first for me. I took apart a key chain flashlight from target and used the components from it. Had to paint over the light to make it yellow (though i also painted the head yellow and orange to help drive the color home. I know nothing about electronics, so working with this was difficult. Had to cut the LED off the circuit board and solder new wires onto it(turns out i'm terrible at soldering cause i had to redo it... a lot). The wires run under the sculpt on his back, and the circuit board/switch/batteries are actually all under his skirt on the back. I hope to work with LEDs more in the future, but i'm having a tough time of it, so we'll see.

he looks awesome, that light coming through that helmet is intense.

thanks dude. It actually has three settings: bright, dim, and blinking. The blinking one is weird. It makes him look like he's a boss from a retro game and he's low on life or something. Kind of like the crystal on megaman Xs head.

stellar stellar work! I always wanted to work with LED lights also and even bought some 2 years ago and still haven't tried anything. I wanted to put some lights in my Cylon Raiders and Vipers but never did. I love this custom, it is evil, mean and nasty...not to mention massive! Killer Custom for sure!
WhiskeytangosCustomShop - Wednesday, May 9, 2012
thanks freddie. You should give the LEDs a shot. They're kind of a pain, but worth it if you can pull it off

da man - Tuesday, May 8, 2012
I would have love to see the DC version done this well. He was HUUUGE In the game and then they decided to make him hunched over and squating making him smaller than Kratos. Well done!

WhiskeytangosCustomShop - Tuesday, May 8, 2012

customfig - Monday, May 7, 2012
Wick as hell , I would like to see a hercules too
WhiskeytangosCustomShop - Monday, May 7, 2012
I'm considering doing him, cause that FYE had one of him too on clearance. He'd be a lot less work than Hades was... I think the same base body would work well for him too.
pulpyfiction - Monday, May 7, 2012
Agreed whiskey, this is some of your best work. this is just one of those straight up perfect customs, head to toe. Great work on the lights too, always cool to see somebody try something new and succeed, and it really adds to what you have here!
WhiskeytangosCustomShop - Monday, May 7, 2012
thanks pulpy. I'm really happy with how the LED turned out. It did mean I couldn't do an unhelmeted head for him, but that didn't really eat me up too much, cause I hated the design of his face in the game. I'm sure its supposed to look menacing, but he just looks like an inbred baby who was dropped on his head.
pulpyfiction - Monday, May 7, 2012
So your saying he suffers from stewie griffin syndrome then.
I'd cover it up with this bada$$ mask too, if I were him.
WhiskeytangosCustomShop - Tuesday, May 8, 2012
haha, its so much worse than that. Seriously, google image it. Just awful.
CAb00se - Monday, May 7, 2012
