Solomon Grundy Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42924  
Name:Solomon Grundy
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:September 21, 2012
Base Figure:Marvel Select Hulk
Height:8.00 inches
"Tell me... when were you brought into this world? On what day did Slaughter Swamp expel your gruesome form into this plane of existence? TELL ME WHAT DAY YOU WERE BORN, SO THAT YOUR NAME MAY FIND ITS WAY INTO MANKIND'S NIGHTMARES!"

Solomon Grundy is one of the most powerful characters in all of DC with a might that has rivaled Superman's at times and a physique on par with Marvel's Hulk. That's probably why I chose the Marvel Select Hulk as the body base. Grundy's head came from a Gamma Strike Hulk with Aves Fixit Sculpted hair and chin, and the jacket from a 12" RoC Cobra Commander tailored to fit then tattered. Grundy's boots were sculpted over the feet using Aves Apoxie sculpt with real laces and he was given a rope belt. Various shades of grey were used for his flesh and a mucky wash detailing covers makes it appear he has just walked from the swamp. He follows the same BAF style as my Clayface for a larger DC Universe figure.

I have been loving the influx of Grundy customs lately here on the Realm and this is among the best. Great job Jin and it's great to see you leaving comments, it means a lot us.

Hmmm, has he shown up in comics/shows recently? I have him and a few other 'large scale' type DC characters in the works. Well, was going to do a Killer Croc until the Arkham one came out.

Jin Saotome - Sunday, September 23, 2012

Jin Saotome - Friday, September 21, 2012
All week actually, heh

WOW, Jin! Are you kidding me?!?! Just the sculpted boots alone have me speechless, dude! They look like real leather!!!
A....MA....ZING!!!
Head to boots perfection! Love the mixed media! Love the paints!
Another Jin Masterpiece!
Jin Saotome - Friday, September 21, 2012
Thanks! The trick to the boots is using a sponge to make impressions on the surface while the sculpt is still raw.
NeCrollector - Friday, September 21, 2012
Pure, unfiltered genius, brother! Thanks for the tip! I've gotta give it a try.

epic job as always jin, love right down to the laces. love to see FF take on him and may even make me try one. loved the battle in the JLU cartoon. keep up the inspirational work.
Jin Saotome - Saturday, September 22, 2012
Is that the one where he fights Superman to a standstill?
Cosmic Fantasy Customs - Monday, September 24, 2012
yep and the rest of the justice league and it comes down to hawkgirl. don't want to reveal too much. such an awesome cartoon, thanks for the reply.
fastfreddie - Friday, September 21, 2012
OH MY MY MY! I may have to try this recipe for sure! I been planning a Grundy forever it seems like and this really gets the creative juices flowing! Great custom! A shining example of your ingenuity!
Jin Saotome - Friday, September 21, 2012
Heya FF! Definitely man, go for it! See if you can find an open hand that's MS Hulk sized so he can hold a log.
Banner/HULK Inc. - Friday, September 21, 2012
That's a strong looking Grundy, powerful looking!!!
Jin Saotome - Saturday, September 22, 2012
Coming from the Hulk himself I take that as the ultimate compliment
JonMichael - Friday, September 21, 2012
PERFECT!

"Solomon Grundy wants pants, too!"
Jin Saotome - Friday, September 21, 2012
LOL, what's that from? Other people have said that.
Comicustoms - Friday, September 21, 2012
Adult SWim commercials. I have to say, this is an excellent Grundy!
JonMichael - Saturday, September 22, 2012
Yup, from an old commercial using Legion of Doom clips from Super Friends. Everyone is whining for toys like Batman and the rest have, but Brainiac just wants a decent pair of pants...as does Grundy!
JayBlazeXGen - Friday, September 21, 2012
Ooooooooooooh Great Job here,
Jin Saotome - Sunday, September 23, 2012
