THE PUNISHER! As He appears on the Cover of his First Appearance Issue in The Amazing Spider-Man #129 (1974). This is a Custom is one that I have been planning to make for awhile. The Moment Came, and Frank Castle, here, decided it was time to be made and who am I to argue with a figure that is ready to exist.

Firstly, I wanted to do a Frank Castle that didn't just look bad ass, which he always does, but also looked like someone carrying alot of pain in the face, and one that bore a resemblance to how he appeared in the comic.

He comes complete with his "Concussion Sniper Rifle" (which, those of you who own or have seen this comic know is a very unusual gun), a non-removable side-arm at the waist, and a removable pistol in a Holster attached to his boot which he hold in place of his Rifle. The Rifle was scratch made. This weapon has three distinctly different looks throughout The comic, so I have chosen to combine all three.

The Punishers hair, parts of the head and face and costume details are sculpted, though to be true to the original comic, the skull on his chest is not raised, only the "teeth", wich blend into his armored jumpsuit as they did in the comic. He also required a new right hand sculpted to shape to hold the Rifle and an almost fully re sculpted right arm.

There are many more pictures on the eBay listing and on my website DaveyBlazeCustoms [dot]com. I hope you guys like him as much as I do!

Thank you very much, man! This was one I had always planned to make and really enjoyed making. I may do other takes on first appearance Punisher's, perhaps with different joints, slightly different heights, etc. There will definitely be more variations on The Punisher to come, that's for sure!

Congratulations! You've taken a sub-standard figure and turned it into a statue-quality artwork.
Very nice brother. I like it a lot! Amazing execution.

Add edit: He sorta looks a little like a young Clint Eastwood on some angles. Which is ALWAYS a good thing for extra badass points!

Thank you very, very much LC! That's a big compliment and I'm really glad you think that, and the Clint Eastwood thing, also a huge compliment, because even in his old age Clint is such a living embodiment.of bad-assedness!

Interesting base figure, a Starman, it turned out great! I like how he's able to hold the rifle well. Nice classic look for Frank Castle.

Thanks a lot, man! I forgot to mention it in the recipe, but one of the hands required a radical hand transplant and re shaping his right arm was also almost completely re sculpted, which I added to the recipe. Itook a little tweaking, but that's why he can hold the Rifle so well!
