Lieutenant John Cooper Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:50887  
Name:Lieutenant John Cooper
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Walking Dead
Creator:AMCTWD13  
Date Added:June 19, 2013
Base Figure:Series 3 Autopsy Zombie
Height:5.00 inches
Using a Series 3 Autopsy Zombie, I have constructed a very interesting military custom zombie by the name of Lieutenant John M. Cooper.
This custom was fairly easy to make an involved very little sculpting. What I did was paint his overcoat, undershirt, and pants olive green. After that I added a bunch of different colored paint blotches to make the walker's pants look woodland camouflage. This took time. After I let the figure dry, I paintbrush splattered blood-colored acrylic paint all over his pants and overcoat. After that I dry-brushed the figure with black paint to give him a sweaty and unclean approach (as seen in the last picture). After that I added a couple visible gunshot wounds with blood running down towards his lower body. This was fun and only took a couple of minute. Then, I moved on to the stomach where you can clearly see that this zombie had been disemboweled as a human. To do this, I squirted a line of pink acrylic paint on a non-stick object such as a glass plate, metal pan, or even a paint palette. Let your line of wet paint air dry for 2-3 days. After that remove the paint and mold it into slimy-looking intestines. The longer you squirt the paint onto the non-stick object, the longer the figure's insides will be. You can have them hanging to his feet! That is the cheapest way to make appropriate scale bowels. There are many other methods you can use. You can use apoxie/epoxy sculpt, sculpey, liquid plastic, instamorph, and much more. After I made my short, curly intestine, I glued it into the crease with crafts glue. Then, I poured bright red paint inside the "Autopsy Zombie's" autopsy hole. I let that dry for about 2-3 days. Then I painted dark blood over that but left some pink/red areas exposed to look like inner-organs and tissue. Other than that, I removed a couple fingers on its left hand, but that is completely optional. You can remove anything you want as long as you own a sharp knife/blade or X-acto knife. Go ahead an make your own if you want to, but if you show him off, please give me credit as this was 100% MY idea.

John Cooper was leading officer stationed at Fort Benning during the early days of the apocalypse. For months, the fort was fully operational and housed over 200 able-bodied survivors. When a soldier outside the walls was bitten and decided to conceal his bite, all hell broke loose just days later. Soldiers and civilians began to unexpectedly turn and continued to infect more and more survivors. General Gros quarantined half the fort and locked down the command center and barracks. Without Gros in action, many soldiers gathered as much supplies as they could gather and abandoned their post. Only about two dozen or so stayed to fight. One of those men was Lieutenant John M. Cooper. Later that day, Cooper and his squad were brought down by a pack of walkers while trying to escape the fort. However, Cooper escaped after watching his entire squadron being torn apart by walkers. Shortly after, a patrol found Cooper disemboweled in the infirmary. As a zombie, Cooper left Fort Benning and wound up in Atlanta. There, he joined a large herd and was killed by Hershel Greene when walkers attacked his farm.

Haha thanks dude. Means a lot

I sure will,I'll probably have one of The Governors uploaded first out of the bunch,Im not sure Vinnies head'll look right unless I make the neck a lot shorter which will be hard for me to do,I had to put my aves sculpt in the ball joint hole in the neck & just glue The Governors head to it because the head looked planted on his neck in an awkward way,lost the head articulation but it looks right,might have to do something like that with the Negan

k man thanks for the tip,only thing I saw of Will was his wrists,Hmm I'd say Daryls either late-mid 20's or early 30's,& I'd guess since Jess seems late 40's mid-early 50's & I THINK Wills supposed to be a but younger,maybe early-mid 40's,if hes supposed to be older than Jess maybe late 50's -early 60's,honestly Im not sure,hope this helps
AMCTWD13 - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Hmm. Thanks I think I'm gonna go with 55-60 because his voice was up there haha. And good luck on your diorama! If you wan't, I'll have more figures up tomorrow you can take a look
JayBlazeXGen - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Well good luck,how are you gonna do Will though since he doesn't visually appear?Its a good game.I've been working on The Governor TV version,The Governor Comic version,Daryl,Rick,Negan that will fit in both comic & TV versions (TV version as I'd depict,same outfit,realistic head,think Marvel Legends X3 Juggernaut head will work on a Jakks WWE base?I think Vinnie Jones'd be a great Negan,)& I'll also make other characters like Glenn Merle & of course zombies all in 6 inch scale,Oh & along with the Governors is his room,Any tips since its a Walking Dead diorama?I already got the heads in fishtanks down & the base,

Well I'm taking a couple things out of the game that you as a player see when playing as Will Dixon. He's going to have that red and black stripe button-down shirt with the wrist not buttoned, grey/brown pants, and construction boots. The face is basically all up to me so I made a very realistic fishing hat out of real leather and am gonna start sculpting grey hair and a beard. Daryls what 30? So how old should I make the father? You'd seem to know haha that's a lot of stuff your working on! Real cool. Any a diorama tip I guess is to make things look realistic and stuff, that gets fans going crazy
JayBlazeXGen - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Again Great job & backstory,
AMCTWD13 - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Thanks! I gotta couple more zombie soldiers to go along with this Fort Benning gig I got going on. Apparently, you can only upload two a day so I chose these lol. I'm going to get started on my custom Hershel Greene this weekend. Making him out of the Comic Governor I picked up. Then after that, I'm working on a Will Dixon and Jess Collins from the game, Survival Instinct. Should be cool and thanks for the quick support haha
