Red Hood V1 - New 52 Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:44241  
Name:Red Hood V1 - New 52
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:1987olds442  
Date Added:November 12, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC Samurai, Starman, Sportsmaster, and ML X3 Beast
Height:6.50 inches
This is the first custom that I've ever made for someone other than myself. A fellow collector over at the fwoosh asked if I could make him a new 52 Red Hood.

The base body was a DCUC Samurai, Starman's arms with Aquaman's hands, a modified ML X3 Beast jacket, MM Batman belt with ML Fantomex holsters, and finally a re-sculpted Sportsmaster head. To create the embossed bat logo I printed it on label paper then layer several sheets together, and I carefully cut out the logo then glued the logo to the chest. After that I primed and painted everything. Let me know what you all think.

Hi, your custom red hood figure looks amazing. Would it be possible to place an order for one?

This is a really awesome figure. It's pretty cool to see a non-Mr. T recipe too! Love the way you did the logo, I think I'll be trying that in the future.

Thank you very much There does seem to be a lot of Mr. Terrific based Red Hoods. I have a second version on my work bench that also isn't Mr. Terrific based as well.

Hey bro, thats an awesome custom of Red Hood you got there. If I may make a suggestion, you should black wash his mask to give him that dark shadowy look.
1987olds442 - Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Thank you very much Hmm... I might have to try that dark wash on my next one. I'm already getting parts together for my personal Red Hood.

Awesome bro. I know it'll look just as awesome and gnarly as this one. keep up the great work

Darn it, how'd you get the sculpting and paints so incredibly sharp and smooth?! An incredible Red Hood for sure!
1987olds442 - Tuesday, November 13, 2012
Lots of grinding with a dremel and hand sanding I also use an automotive top coat to seal the paint then a dullcoat on the parts that need to matte finish. And thank you

Best one I've seen thus far, I have to try this in my scale. Nice work!
1987olds442 - Monday, November 12, 2012
Thank you very much The only thing I don't like about this one is that it wasn't for me. Now I'll have to make a second one for myself

1987olds442 - Monday, November 12, 2012
Thank you very much I really wish this was the Red Hood they would have picked for the DCIE sub. Now I'll have to make another for myself
