ONE MORE CUSTOM UP MY SLEEVE BEFORE 2012 ENDS...

PLANETSTATEN CUSTOMS presents ...
DC 52 Red Hood

If you know me you know im a big Jason Todd fan. I enjoy his character & journey as a outlaw. He is determined to prove he is a better "batman" then his former mentor.
I took me a while to plan out how I was going to make this custom come to life. Picking which pieces would work best, starting with the base body. Ive seen a lot of great versions but I wanted mine to fall in line with DC 52 line up so I used DC Collectibles Batman (the irony uh) I then thought about accessories & thought of using Marvel legends Xorn jacket & arms but the sizing was off so I improvised & sanded the arms a bit & molded the sleeves using the same original base body arms. I used DC Universe Superboy jacket as I wanted the batman symbol to show & stand out. He wants to prove he's the better bat right? The belt I used from Batman Begins & leg straps I used from Young Justice Red Arrow. As for the helmet I used a bullseye head & molded it flat around. I doubt DC Collectibles will be releasing one this year so I thought I'd speed up the process and add one myself..

Let me know what you think? NUFF SAID!

Nice job. It's got a great unique look to it and the bodytype turned our not too bulky - great for the character.

nice I love the base you used, and the sculpting is awsome, but might I suggest that next time to use a more glossyer red, or to clear coat the red, but thats just a suggestion, and good work!
