Hi, Realmer,

It’s been awhile since I posted my last custom figure.
Today, I present you with a Green Beetle from Young Justice TV animated series.
I believe this Green Beetle is the first of its kind for a figure and I’m delighted to share with you. I have been working on this one for over two and a half months from time to time and just completed last weekend.

Green Beetle (real name B'arzz O'oomm) is a Green Martian, and displays the distinct physical traits common to his species through his armor, including an extremely narrow waist, wide pelvic bones, taloned feet, elongated arms that hang below his knees and three-fingered hands with tapering digits.

Taking these facts into consideration, I used Mattel Avatar, Jake Sully action figure as a base which seemed to meet the description of narrow waist with slender body. Since Jake’s arms were not long enough, I had to extend them with Toybiz X-Men series, Ultimate Night Crawler’s forearms, hands, and feet that perfectly satisfy Green Beetle’s physical features. Hope you guys like the result. Any comments and criticisms are welcome.

Check out the formula/recipe below:

Head: DC Universe Classics Blue Beetle
Body: Avatar Jake Sully with sculpted armor parts
Lower arms: Toybiz X-Men series, Ultimate Night Crawler
Lower legs: DC Universe Classics Blue Beetle
Hands & Feets: Toybiz X-Men series, Ultimate Night Crawler
Scarab’s horns: Stag beetle toy found in fodder box

Everything else is sculpted with Apoxie Sculpt.
