Torpedo Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:57665  
Name:Torpedo
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel
Creator:customapprentice  
Date Added:January 24, 2014
Base Figure:DCUC Sharkman
Height:6.00 inches
Hello. This is my Torpedo custom action figure. He was made using a DCUC sharkman base figure. The head and fins were removed using a dremmel tool and xacto knife. The new head was an interesting problem as the facial features needed to be altered. I accomplished this using a hot xacto knife. I do not recommend this method. The helmet,visor and hair were all sculpted using magic-sculpt. The turbines on the arms and legs were made using random fodder,sculpt, and styrene sheet. The entire figure was then hand painted using metallic blue,sliver,red,yellow and flat flesh tone. I worked really really hard on this one. I hope you like the figure as much as I do. Thank you for looking and please feel free to comment.

A fantastic custom of the one of the most tragicly murdered heroes!

It's always tragic to have your brains sucked out of the back of your head but at least he went down rocket punching!

Wow, another great custom, the hardest things to do, specially the head is perfectly done, the same, the gloves and boots too and finally the same colors he wears. Aaah yeah, you made him a great rendition. Despite I never liked this character I love you custom. And he was a great Rom's ally but I always thought this guy didn't fit with Rom (even when he's on Earth) I always liked the Spaceknights team (fighting the wraiths through the galaxy, as Rom thought he condemned other planets by exiling the wraiths from his planet). Excellent custom, you're a true artist!

I don't know this character, but the way you painted and put this together looks really good, unique design!

Thank you so much Banner/HULK! ..Torpedo was a football player turned super-hero during the Dire Wraith invasion of the 80's. He was introduced in the pages of ROM and went on to have his own book for a short while. He got his brain sucked out of the back of his head by a dire wraith. I believe the new character named Turbo,a woman, now wears the torpedo suit. I hope that gives you a little background to go on, and thank you again for the comment!
