Good afternoon, Realmers. Today I present my latest custom, Falcon. A few weeks back I saw one done by another customizer I enjoy watching. His rendition was fantastic and inspired me to do one since I had most of the fodder in my bins. I did alter up the recipe slightly in order to suit what I wanted to see on the custom.
The base body is primarily a DCUC Red Tornado. The head and forearms came from a GL 5 pack John Stewart, the lower legs from SC Batman and the feet from Hawkman. The feathers on his ankles were sculpted. I plucked the wings from the ML Falcon as well as the headpiece on his forehead. I embedded the wings into the DC arms by dremeling out a channel in the biceps and forearms, while leaving "tabs" on the wings in order to insert and secure them to the arms. That was the most complicated part in that, anytime I'm using a dremel on my figures and doing something I haven't tried before, I always get a little nervous. Anyways, once the wings were in place the rest was paintwork. I gave him Redwing as well, which was the bird accessory that came with Beast Boy.
I hope you enjoy him and as always thanks for stopping by! See you next time.
