Hugo Strange Custom Action Figure

Custom #:43664  
Name:Hugo Strange
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Date Added:October 18, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC John Constantine, DC Direct Justice Lex Luthor
Height:6.50 inches
I count myself among the many who are hankering for a proper Hugo Strange figure from either Mattel or DC Collectibles, especially since the character figured so prominently in the Arkham City storyline. He's also a major Batman villain I don't have a figure/custom of, and have been hoping to make for some time. The base body was a DCUC John Constantine (from the Club IE subscription, I think) that I was fortunate enough to find loose. He's a useful base figure. The lab coat was from an Alias figure, and painted white. I modified the tie, because Constantine wears it loose but I don't think Hugo Strange would. The head was the hard part, I didn't have a bald figure head with the right neck attachment, but I eventually decided to go with a Justice Lex Luthor head from DC Direct. I had to modify the base of the head to fit on the neck, so lots of dremeling. It still doesn't fit properly on the head, but it will do. The beard and eyebrows were sculpted on and painted, and the glasses are from a DC Direct 90s-style Superboy. The Batman mask accessory in the first pic is from the DCUC Black Mask figure.

Updated with new paints.

p.s that john constantien is a custom itself
its a movie masters body or dcuc sandman body with a sculpted captain boomerang head and legacy joker or dcuc quetsion jacket
so you customized a custom

Hi Chester - that John Constantine wasn't a custom. If I'm not wrong, the figure is meant to be part of the DC Club Infinite Earths subscription line, and it is an official Mattel figure. Some collectors have been able to buy it off eBay. I just bought it loose; sometimes I'm able to find loose DCUC figures that somehow found their way from the factory to the flea market. Mattel definitely reused parts from the Question and/or other figures, but they did sculpt a new head and tie.

Also, the Sandman body is completely different from the movie masters body. Taller by almost 3/4 of an inch.
