Tabascustoms strikes back with this Strong Guy Custom based on his 90's appearance.
This is what I used:
Maestro Hulk as main base
B.A.Customs Juggernaut head
Legs from FF Movie Thing.

I decided to retool the neck as I've always said it looks too funny. I broke the neck and filled it up with epoxy, tilting it down a little bit so that it would look as hunched. Then the leg ball joints were reduced in size because the peg was too large for the Thing legs to fit in. The head was sanded out to make it look bald, then I drilled a hole in the forehead and added some epoxy for the hair. I mixed acryllic white + red to get some pink and painted the mounth in-between the teeth, then I passed a small piece of paper to clear the teeth white again. The glasses are epoxy as well, red in the center and blue around, but I painted the red are first, so that the blue looks really bad. So I will repaint the glasses later, first the blue, then the red in the center will cover mistakes. All painted in oil-based paint with a mate sealer to kill the gloss. The arms are acryllic as well and sealed to avoid the joints from wearing out. Some joints still wear out, but as I'm quite lazy, I'm not sure when I will get those fixed, so I better submit this figure before I sell it or takes a high dive from the shelf and suffers a heart attack due to the massive kinetic energy received. Gracias por visitar!!!

It is not backnee, it´s gotta be fleas or something for hanging out with feral or wolfsbane...Seriously, It was extremely boring removing the blisters from the chest, I decided I would not do that for the back. Thanks for your comments to y'all.
