Base Figure:DCD Killer Croc
Height:9.00 inches

"How many times do I have to tell you, white boy? Gotham's sewers belong to Killer Croc."
Waylon Jones was born with a mutation giving him reptile skin, sharp claws and teeth. He was a champion wrestler who soon retired and then became one of Batman's most dangerous rogues.

With so many Arkham Crocs, I wanted to make Killer Croc in his more crocodile like form like when he got kicked around by Osiris. In fact, I almost made a Sobek. Anyone who has searched the internet for custom figures has probably seen this recipe used for a different character. I added more articulation, used different parts from my fodder, and sculpted/modded a ton of him.
The base used was a DCD Rogues Gallery Killer Croc. Luckily I had bought him for a few bucks back before the price blew up. I cut the torso just below the waist and used plastic epoxy to attach a broken Sota SF Blanka lower torso and legs I had lying around.. Then cut Blanka and Crocs legs mid thigh. I cut off and dremeled an early ML Thing figures hip joint and pinned then epoxy glued that to Blankas thigh. A peg hole was dremed in Crocs thigh to fit the peg for a mid thigh swivel and modded the knees to stand straighter. I removed Things ankle rocker and heated then cut off Crocs feet. The feet and ankles were dremeled to accept the new ankle rocker. Then I removed Crocs hands cut off the pegs and dremeled them out at the wrists on both ends. I used a shaved down UFC figures shoulder for a double ball jointed wrist. The head and tail I was lucky to find at Hobby Lobby. It's a Papo Spinosaurus. I chopped off the head and tail. Hollowed out the neck and inserted a ball jointed shoulder from some random figure. The biceps, forearms, neck, lower torso, thighs, ankles, wrists, and hands are re-sculpted either to fit in, cover, or bulk up. He can now do some very dynamic posing.

U'VE GOT ALL MY THUMBS UP BROTHER!
this is sickkkk
RedRebelCustoms - Thursday, June 28, 2012
devildice- Thanks bro! I'm totally digg'n your unique style! Good to hear from you again. I don't know if you ever figured out that FB but hit me up!
RedRebelCustoms - Monday, June 11, 2012
Hey anyone happen to know why my figure no longer shows up in the contest entries or why my trophy is absent from my account????
cuztomiza - Monday, June 11, 2012
Yeah.. I noticed it too brother..it only happens if there are reported violations .. but anyways.. it still known you got 2nd place.. and we are your witness. You may report this to he Moderators.
RedRebelCustoms - Monday, June 11, 2012
Woah, no violations here! I reported it. I thought it was a glitch because I updated my figure. If someone foumd something wrong with my entry, I'd sure like to know! I play by the rules. Plain and simple! I may not be the best customizer but I hold my own. I have no reason to do anything auspicious. Now I'm annoyed! That had better be a glitch. I work hard to get these figures entered on time. If I'm being accused of something, I have a right to know. If that is the case... I deserve to be informed before they remove my entry.
davejuicebox - Monday, June 11, 2012
Hopefully it's just a clerical error or something, 'cause your Croc looks great! You did some fantastic work.
RedRebelCustoms - Monday, June 11, 2012
davejuicebox- Thank you for the awesome compliment and the concern. I too hope it was a clerical error. I have retraced the steps I took when posting and the other sites I posted to the day after voting had ended. I can't find a basis for the removal of my entry. It has to be a glitch. I've been pm'ing to try to get my entry back up. Waiting to hear back. Thanks again bro!
NeCrollector - Monday, June 11, 2012
I was wondering the same thing myself
I hope the admins figure it out, brother...
RedRebelCustoms - Monday, June 11, 2012
Thanks NeCrollector! Much appreciated bro! I have mods looking into it. I have a funny feeling that if I was reported for something, I know whi would be behind it. Still thinking it was a glitch though.
RedRebelCustoms - Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Never heard anything back. Guess it was a glitch!
Wallcrawler Customs - Sunday, June 10, 2012
Congratulations on the second place! If You have an other of those heads left over I would still love to see it on a bigger body because I think it will be awesome! But don´t get me wrong this one is frightening awesome and boss wicked and unbelievable cool!

Thank you all for voting and the wonderful comments. For those who haven't seen this guy before, didn't google it after reading the description or didn't read the description- this is based on a work by GrownNerd! I didn't put his name in my post because I have stated how much of a fan I am and didn't want to give away my identity!

REBNOR- Thanks bro! Means a lot when you had an influence on the winning figure!
Bushinryus40th - Saturday, June 2, 2012
This is just sick bro! So what the noggin may be a little to big! Screw it, I can live with that because this' just so well done!
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
Bushinryus40th- Great comment bro! Very much appreciated! His head really doesn't look that big. LOL. Thank you!
rexticon - Saturday, June 2, 2012
OMG
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
rexticon- a simple comment but it made my day! Thanks bro!
Janalexander - Saturday, June 2, 2012
All the details are so amazing! I very like its head. Well done.
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
Jan14- Thank you! Removing the head was a lot of work with the huge odd jaw joint. Plus I had to hollow out a place for a joint as the dino was solid rubber like plastic. Fittimg it all in place and sculpting, etc. I like it though.
Wallcrawler Customs - Saturday, June 2, 2012
It´s insane ... ok the head is just a little to big for the body, but the look of this thing is amazing! Would love to see this head on ... let´s say a ML Icon Venom body ... just for size comparison !
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
wallcrawler31- Thanks bro! I made the head removable and put it on an Icons Venom. I could try fitting a picture in but I can tell you it looks 2 sizes too small! LOL. A lot of it may have been the camera angles!
G_Rantula - Friday, June 1, 2012
I believe that you can add another 1st place notch to your belt man. EXCELLENT WORK!!!
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
G_Rantula- This may have secured my placement with all the great entries. Hope all is going well with BZ! I haven't answered the pm yet! Had a biopsy the other day and waiting for the results. Thanks again bro!
Gunsmoke - Friday, June 1, 2012
This is crazy . Croc is just jaw dropping good ! The colors look so real . Your sculpted pieces are epic man ! This should place for sure .
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
Gunsmoke- Thanks bro! Awesome comment! Matching the scales was a pain when sculpting. I like how he turned out!
G Brand - Friday, June 1, 2012
Fantastic paint job.
RedRebelCustoms - Friday, June 8, 2012
G Brand- Thanks bro! Lots of custom mixed colors! At one point he looked grayscale and I almost left it but I just love making green!
NeCrollector - Friday, June 1, 2012
