I've been working on several projects that are a little bit challenging, so for a little break, I did this Aquaman head swap...

So I bought the DCUC series 2 Aquaman (modern version)...I really wanted the classic version, but have yet to find one at stores. Is it just me, or was the DCUC series 2 harder than heck to find?...Oh, well. Anyways, I thought the head on the original figure was just too...how should I say this?...Fey?!!!!...

Really, I thought he looked like Prince Charming from the "Shreck" movies, and what is with that stupid grin?...

My original intent was to totally rip off Buzzy Fret's Aquaman custom (Classic Aquaman without the black trunks), but after getting tired of waiting for a DCUC Classic Aquaman to surface, I looked back at previous Aquaman entries here on the realm. I really liked the one done by Arez. So I decided to give Aquaman a testosterone charged makeover. A set of whiskers could really go far at making Aquaman look manly, so (just like the one done by Arez) I used a Marvel Legends Sentry variant head (which fit surprisingly well on the Aquaman head peg). Then I sculpted just a little bit of extra hair in the back and painted it blonde.

I wanted an Aquaman that looks like he does more than just talk to fish...I know it's just a simple headswap, but I'm really happy with the way this turned out.

He looks like a dashing swashbuckler and would make a good companion to my mermaid figure.

I wanted to do the Total Justice version of him, but I think this is a great substitute, only thing I'd add is some black on the pants.
