(Lee Romao Inspired) Popeye the Sailor Man Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:49429  
Name:(Lee Romao Inspired) Popeye the Sailor Man
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Creator:RedRebelCustoms  
Date Added:May 3, 2013
Base Figure:WWE Elite Rick Rude
Height:6.50 inches
Since I haven't posted in a while, mostly due to lack of photo taking, and I am trying to help promote the fundraiser you guys may have seen on the showcase home...thought I'd post one. This is one not too old and I already had pics of him. I will be posting more coming soon in hopes of helping out the breast cancer fundraiser.

This Popeye was made for a contest on another site a couple months ago. He is based roughly on Lee Romao's popular CG artwork that has been floating around the internet. Romao did a beautiful job of capturing the work of E.C. Segar's inspirations for the character. A wonderfully imagined tribute to one of my favorite cartoon tough guys!

He is mostly a WWE Elite base sanded down and re-sculpted. The head is a custom sculpt as was the pipe and hat. I hope you enjoy. Thank you and as always comments are always welcome!

Holy crap that is beyond COOL! Popeye was one of my childhood favorites! You've got awesome skills!
RedRebelCustoms - Thursday, May 9, 2013
LOL! One of mine too! You know he was based on Frank Fiegel? A small and wiry old tough guy with one eye who smoked a pipe! He was a local legends who was said to have incredible strength ended up in a lot of fights. He lived in Segar's home town!

Amazing attention to detail. Except for a few missing tattoos, it looks really spot on!

Thank you! ! The tattoos were a pain. This was for a contest on the WGC Facebook page and I ran short of time.
