I've wanted to make a figure of Ubu, Ra's al Ghul's faithful servant for a very long time. I even had a wrestler figure I got some years ago for that purpose but that I've never been able to customize. Tonight I was looking at some of the stuff in the fodder box that was leftover after my Bane figure and I got an idea:

head, biceps, lower arms: wrestler figure (dunno his name)
torso and shoulders: Expendables 2 Gunner Jensen
legs: NECO Duke Nuke 'Em
gun: Expendables Gunner Jensen
wristband: first aid tape

I boiled and popped the Gunner Jensen head and replace it with the wrestler's bald head. However, this made the figure's arms out of proportion to the head so I boiled and popped then off at the biceps and replaced them with the wrestler's arms. The peg on the groin of the Duke Nuke Em figure was a little large for the hole on the Jensen figure so I used an exacto blade to widen the latter and in it popped.

I wanted a distinctive looking figure and debated on how to make him stand out. I finally got the idea of giving him an arm tattoo. I gave him a green flame design (green being Ra's color) that ended with a devil face on his shoulder to mark him out as a devoted servant of the Demon's Head.

Though Ubu usually relies on his strength in the comics, as Ra's #1 henchman I figured that he would "realistically" have a firearm handy to fend off any threats.

So there you go. He's different from the comic book interpretation of the character--no tights, muscle shirts, etc but I like this more up-to-date militaristic look.

I used a movie Juggernaut head for a very similar Ubu. Nice job.

thanks! I'm not entirely happy with it but my painting with a toothpick skills are not the best I'm afraid!
