Boomerang Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:44757  
Name:Boomerang
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Green Skin  
Date Added:November 27, 2012
Base Figure:Spider-Man
Height:6.00 inches
I've always had a soft spot for Boomerang and it's been quite a few years since I've made one so I figured I'd give it another go.

I started with this goofy one armed spiderman and found some proper arms from the fodder bin. Then I used strip styrene to add the seams of the uniform and layered out the base coats to each area. Then I decided on a Gambit head, chopped his hair off and sculpted a new dome with Aves.

Then I sculpted the body boomerangs with some aves, and applied the rest of the paint job. After that it was just a matter of attaching the boomerangs and making his arsenal. I decided to make him some unique boomerangs since he's been known to use trick 'rangs before, and just giving him some plain ones seemed pretty boring to me. I ended up making him 9 boomerangs in total. 2 Razored, 1 gas, 1 sonic, 1 cryo, 1 poison, 1 explosive, 1 energy and 1 cutter.

cheers

Thanks man! I've been trying to brush up on my paint skils, one of the main reasons I choose to do this guy.

This is fantastic. I've wanted to make this guy for a while, but I just couldn't fully get behind the having giant boomerangs on his chest, thing. That was just too weird to me. lol But I always kinda liked him myself and enjoyed the Sinister Syndicate. Nice to see a dead-on rendition of him. Love it!

Thanks man!

I agree, his costume is horribly goofy and really dated but I just dig the guy for some reason. I was originally going to make the boomerangs on his body detachable so they made a little more sense, but just wanted to get him done, lol.
