Hi everyone..With this custom im taking it way back when this coin-op was the hottest game at its time.Made by Namco & distributed in the US in local pizza shops,7-Elevens & Game Rooms by Atari.I felt Rolling Thunder Agent Albatross figure needed to be made..As the story goes Albatross partner Leila Blitz gets kidnapped by a secret society organization called Geldra. Its leader, this green alien looking creature name Maboo control a army of masked cobra commander looking soldiers called Maskers.This game had it all...Mutant big bats,Panthers,Lava men and a yellow human/ape looking creatures called Blogas..(I always thought Capcom borrow this creature concept when they created Blanka). One of the most memorable cut- scene in the game is the big computer screen that needed four guys to operate showing Leila being tortured.Well here what I did to make Agent Albatross.The base I use Sota Remy for his lanky build.removed remy bell bottoms & size 14 shoes for ML Baron Zemo shoes,then sculpted the bottom part of his pants.Hands are from Remy & WWE Elite figure.Gun harness & gun accessory came from ML Avengers Movie Nick Fury.Finally the head is from DCUC Aquaman. Painted him up exactly like the colors in the game & he was done.I am happy how he turned out because this classic game was part of my childhood.I hope this custom brings back those good memories as it did for me.

Thanks for watching
Vic

DUDE! You perfectly captured the character's look and feel! I love it! I'd love to see you tackle some of the aliens/monsters (like Maboo) from vintage video games...I'm sure you can make some amazing and interesting customs.
