Hello Realmors and Realmettes!
I entered this bad boy in the World's Greatest Customizer contest. It was a fun contest with many AMAZING entries from 8 other AWESOME customizers whose work I highly respect and love.
As soon as I ran into the SMC Juggernaut figure in the aisles, all I could see was Captain America screaming to be made. Not to mention that I've been inspired by all the KICKASS pumped-up customs that Bryan Giusti has in his epic collection. Each time I'd see a Giusti, pumped-up custom from one of FigureRealm's customizers, I kept wanting to give it a try.
This was my first time cracking a torso open...quite an interesting learning experience. I did so to remove the Juggernaut arms and replace them with BAF Terrax arms. The stars on his shoulders are made out of thumb tacks. The shield and the belt are from a ROML Steve Rogers. Using Apoxie, I sculpted the gloves' cuffs, star on his chest, the back of the belt and filled in the holes on his torso (from the cracking-open process). I like how Juggie's chest armor translated so well into a chest piece/vest for Captain America (which is why I painted it a darker blue).
I believe he looks perfect next to the ROML Thor. After all, I feel his taller stature and bigger built suit a soldier that was pumped full of Super Soldier Serum. This was quite a challenging custom, but super fun!
Thanks for watching, Realmers! I hope you all like him.
