Hello dear Realmers,

this dude here is an original custom made after the real life superhero concept of a good friend of mine! He is german and lives in Hamburg, which might be the explanation why he call himself after a flat fish :-D !
(They just love fish there in Hamburg ... some people even call them fish-heads ... but don´t tell anybody)!

It´s a hero that don´t use any weapons, but has a maglite flashlight and an utility belt. The skateboard was an adding from my side for some cool poses and for a "hidden" advertisement so everybody can see who was the custom creator ;-)!

Well now for the work that was put into this one:

The body is from a ML Longshot, head & lower legs with boots are from a ML Wonder Man, lower arms with gloves and elbows are from a ML Ghost Rider.
The motorbike hood was from a Batman movie figure and cut out in a way that the face was free and can be put throu.
It´s removable as are the glasses that were repainted googles from a stealth Beast figure and modded to fit to the smaller head.
The Belt was taken from a Cyclops figure and added with extra pockets and holder made out of a piece of headphone cable for holding the flashlight.

There was plenty of sculpting included in this figure as well. The whole structure of the mototbike suite was sculpted with apoxit, his bely was sculpted over to loose the sixpack but keep the articulation.
Buckels on boots were sculpted and the head of Wonder Man was shaved and sanded and the hair was sculpted new.
The head was modded in a way to have some similarities with the real life person and the whole figure can now be masked and unmasked ... which is kind of cool (pheew I was happy that it worked out in the end)!

His chest symbol was copied on transparent foil cut out and glued to the sculpted cirle on his chest!

Got a complete repaint from head to toe and so did the skateboard from downside .... done!

It will be shipped to him as a present! It´s for a funny and faboulos guy and a great figure collector and trader :-D !

Hope You like this new superhero, feel free to give comments!

I hope this guy likes this because you did a great job! You got a good likeness, and the suit came out great! Nice work!

Thanks for the kind words pulpyfiction! You´re simply amazing!
He better likes this, it wasn´t as easy as it looks, because You can´t see the backside of the suite that was even more complicated than the front LOL! To much details and all I got was a bunch of reference fotos! The cut and structure of that suite was so "not synchronized", it really could drive You crazy! Had to choose from a small amount of possible heads and decided to transform Wonder Man. And my friend really has to thank me for make him look more slim than he is in real life ... LOL !

the figure is awsome, and the resemblance is uncanny! I´m sure he´s gonna love it! Nice work, mate!

Olá my spanish friend!!!! I´m happy to know such a nice guy like ringomendoza and it´s awesome that he comments on my work as he is doing such a great job himself.
My Hamburg friend was shocked by my facebook fotos allready. To sad I can only post three pictures here.
I kind of tricked that by connecting pictures, but who dosen´t?

I love original creations, and this is an amazing one, love it!! You've made an excellent custom figure!
Wallcrawler Customs - Sunday, October 14, 2012
Hi xGARRIKx, it was more or less accidentally that my friend from Hamburg told me about his project. He´s a comic crazy collector like me and he´s also an actor at the theatre and on TV.
So he had this funny idea to create a Hamburg superhero on his own: Die Flunder! And after I saw a picture I was making jokes about doing a custom on this one and he was laughing. He couldn´t imagine it, but I got directly ideas popping up in my mind!
It was this great chance for me to do something really unique and for him to remember.
