"Gimme the pig." It's Barracuda, the best and most fearsome enemy from Garth Ennis' Punisher MAX series. Underneath his jovial exterior, lies a cunning and utterly ruthless intellect shaped by war and a horrific upbringing. He's the only man who could consistently go head-to-head against the Punisher and win (at least temporarily)
This was a figure that I've wanted in my collection for over 3 years (ever since the character appeared in the comics). It took me years to figure out a workable recipe and that would give the exaggerated look like in the comics. His hands and legs are smaller as that's the way Goran Parlov draws him in the comics!
One thing I hate about most 1/6th scale (12") muscle bodies is their limited articulation. So with this figure, I wanted to do extreme muscle but show that articulation could be maintained (ie, double jointed elbows!)
Head: WWE Booker T (recast, removed hair & sculpted new dome)
- Torso is DC Deluxe plus heavy custom sculpting on neck and traps
- Arms are a combo of 2 different Marvel 12" figs, TNA wrestler, and Triad Omega body. The elbows are knees from Spiderman!
- Lower is a BBI G3 body.
