Red Skull and HöLlenhund: World War II Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:53845  
Name:Red Skull and HöLlenhund: World War II
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Captain America
Creator:Davey Blaze Customs  
Date Added:September 20, 2013
Base Figure:Major Maxim
Height:7.50 inches
Articulation:14 points
Here is my Newest Custom Set: WWII Red Skull (Reichsführer-SS Uniform) and Höllenhund, Red Skull's Loyal German Shepherd (Höllenhund is an original Davey Blaze Customs Character) with Battle Supply Pack. This, Like his Captain America Custom Counterpart, was a big Labor of Love for me. I just Love them as adversaries.
For this one I had a few goals. I wanted to create a Red Skull that had the physicality of someone exposed to Super Soldier Serum, and a Red Skull that was physically imposing enough to match up with my Classic Captain America Custom. I wanted to be as accurate as possible with the Historical details of putting him in a Reichsführer-SS Uniform, which would place him as second in Command, and kind of put a "time-stamp" on what point in the Characters Life this figure would represent. I also wanted to match or exceed the articulation of my Captain America, so that these would appear to be made in a Matching toy set and so that my main Captain America Universe characters would match up well as a set.
He comes complete with a Battle-Ready Höllenhund, who has his own FigureRealm page for more details on him.
Almost all of the costume details on the Red Skull were sculpted, including an Axis Rifleman's Medal (Infantry Assault Badge), tucked Blood Order Medal, Eagle and Skull & Bones on his Cap, the Cap itself (which is removable), his belt buckle and parts of his belt, Iron Cross, Chest Eagle Badge, arm Badge, Arm sash and Ribbon Bar and his Head is about 90% original sculpt. The Strap & clasps were added accross his chest & back and Jacket was modified, with sculpted Shoulder straps and Reichsführer rank neck tabs, pockets and buttons, and whenever possible the metal components of his costume (clasps on strap) are real metal.
The base figure did not have much articulation, so I added joints at the elbows, forearms, knees and shins and resculpted the lags and pants. All joints added to this figure were made of black plastic this time, so this is my first custom that can be posed as much as desired with almost no possibility of paint rub :) all my fellow customizers, you know what a pain paint rub can be! Red Skull comes with a Custom Walther P-38 with Miniature Red Skulls Sculpted onto both sides of the Handgrip.
There are alot more pictures on my website. I hope you all like Captain America and the Allies Greatest Nemesis...
..THE RED SKULL!!!!!!!

IMPORTANT: All of the Medals and symbols on this figure are present only for character and Historical accuracy, and are not present for any ideological reasons!!!

I've been staring at this for 20+ minutes trying to figure out something to say that can grasp how I feel, I'm just speechless... the BEST Red Skull action figure I've ever seen! UNREAL.
Davey Blaze Customs - Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Wow, thank you Very, Very much for that! I really appreciate the compliment and so glad that you like my work. A lot of blood, sweat and Love went into making this figure. I'm so glad the vision I had for it worked out in practise. Thanks again, man!
meeko - Monday, February 3, 2014
thats an incredible figure, so much detail, and the whole look looks killer and love the dog too
Davey Blaze Customs - Monday, February 3, 2014
Thank you! This was a real labor of Love. It was a gamble all along to know if the vision I had in my head is how the figure would come out, but worth every risk! I'm sure I spilt a little blood making this fellow, too. I think I remember working with two bandaged fingers on this one at one point, but all worth it because I really like the way he came together.

you have a great style man.. Would you ever do any TMNT stuff? If not you should consider.
Davey Blaze Customs - Saturday, October 19, 2013
Thank you Kevlar! I'm really glad you think so I was a Huge TMNT fan growing up, (There's even a picture of me as a kid meeting a guy in a Raphael costume at the Mall and being super-thrilled) so I think I will do some TMNT stuff at some point. I like to avoid doing the same as what others have done though and was debating how I might do it. Yours are probably the most like what I might have done, like your 'Michaelangelo and Klunk' being so "right out of the comics". Since you specialize in TMNT though, I probably might not rush into that category unless I got a TMNT commission, but honestly now that you've suggested it, it's got the wheels in my head turning with ideas.

THIS IS HOW RED SKULL SHOULDVE LOOKED IN THE MOVIE!!!!!!! Absolutely LOVE ur work, KEEP IT UP CHEERS. P.S. This is better than the marvel select red skull lol
Davey Blaze Customs - Thursday, October 3, 2013
Thanks a ton Asguardian!!! I appreciate that a lot and am glad you think so! That's a big compliment I would have been Happier if he had this kind of look in the movie, too, although I am happy that they still didn't entirely drop the ball with that one as with some older attempts. Even though some people didn't like the double-casting of Chris Evans as Captain America, I thought he was perfect and did a great job, and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull was pretty damn near perfect. The only way I could imagine it being better is if they somehow created a clone-hybrid of Hugo Weaving and Christoph Waltz, haha

TheRealSupaMan - Sunday, September 22, 2013
I officially have never said this......THIS IS MY FAVORITE CUSTOM OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Captian America nd Love his villians even more and especially the Red Skull. This is just off the charts Awesome! As soon as I saw this my eyes just popped open as wide as ever! I absolutely love all the details you put into him, but really love the base figure you chose and the size is just perfect! Great job adding the articulation, but man, the details and the paint and just everything is just Fricken Awesome. I would really really really really love to get me one of these. I have over 350 Figures on my shelves and I honestly think this would be my favorite if I had that up on one of them. Alright I gotta stop gushing before my wife cathces me and makes fun of me. MY FAVORITE CUSTOM OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Davey Blaze Customs - Saturday, September 21, 2013
Wow, that's a huge compliment Emmett! I appreciate that a ton!!! I'm really glad all of you guys like this! It was a gamble because I didn't know if the way I envisioned it in my mind would translate once it was done. A lot of time and a lot of Gambles, but I'm happy with how it came together and really glad you and our fellow realmers dig it!
suprasizeme - Saturday, September 21, 2013

giusti - Friday, September 20, 2013
wow man great work on this and I love the uniform

Thanks a lot, Giusti I appreciate that a lot and it's nice to make your acquaintance! I've seen some very awesome Customs inspired by you here on the Realm It's nice to meet the fellow behind the inspiration!
The Composer - Friday, September 20, 2013
That turned out great! Everything from the paint apps to the sculpt itself is impressive. Great attention to detail by the way!
Bravo!
Davey Blaze Customs - Saturday, September 21, 2013
Thank you very much, man!!! I appreciate that very much
fireflamespit - Friday, September 20, 2013
Great attention to detail and red skull looks happy.
Davey Blaze Customs - Friday, September 20, 2013
Thanks F.F.S! Haha, he does!!! It's funny, my all time favorite Red Skull that I'd seen was the Premium Format Red Skull figure, and I LOVED the way he looked like he was smiling, but with this one I meant to do the opposite and make him look more frowny/grimacing, but it was just impossible! As the Face developed, this was how it wanted to be, frownier didn't look right, So Red Skull's glee at being evil and sinister must just be that unquenchable, haha
JeddTheJedi - Friday, September 20, 2013
Crazy-cool sculpting details and such a mean-looking dog! Really good job using the Major Maxim base, which usually looks monstrously disproportionate.
Davey Blaze Customs - Friday, September 20, 2013
Many Thanks, Jedd!!! I'm glad you like it and dig the Lovable Hound, haha! As a kid we had a Nightmarish German Shepherd that guarded the convent next to my childhood home named Ziggy. He (as well as historical Axis Hounds) served as a big inspiration behind this character.
JeddTheJedi - Saturday, September 21, 2013
Ziggy would be honoured! That's a really cool story behind the inspiration for this!
Bakegirl - Friday, September 20, 2013

Hitler loved dogs, but cats are the superior master race. By the way, it's a great custom
