Custom #:48901  
Name:Aquaman (Classics in Jlu Style)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:hunterknightcustoms  
Date Added:April 15, 2013
Base Figure:Amazo head, major force upper torso, Jemm upper legs and aquaman lower legs
Height:6.00 inches
This week I went for a smaller project (unlike last week’s Doomsday!) So it was the turn of the king of the seas: Aquaman in Jlu style.

I aimed for a realistic look on his hair adding depth and multiple highlights to the sculpt. The base figure was made of an Amazo head cast, Major force base body with Aquaman legs. His left hook was created out of a combination of Styrene and apoxie carefully laid out on each side to reinforce the Styrene (see a ton of pics in the video) This time, the figure was completely disassembled to better work on the paint and tooling. (it’s much easier this way!) The head gives the impression of movement however it’s firmly attached to the body (the hair sculpt prevented it) All in all, it was a great project to work on....Namor is sorry now!

I keep looking at this and thinking how much I wish Mattel would release a 90's Hookquaman. I hope there's looks as good as yours.

The paints on this blow my mind. Especially the flesh tone, it is just so smooth and so nice. I'm way impressed.

Really great translation of the JLU look into a DCUC custom! And that last picture is hilarious.

My favorite look for Aquaman. Not too many made. I made a couple myself, although more comic-based. I love seeing this one, within your JLU to DCUC transition series. Awesome.
