    Captain Bucky O'Hare Custom Figure

    I wanted to go away from my usual style and try something else. So I went for a cartoon style. It was quite nerve racking adding the black lines after doing all the layers of paint he needed. There are a few lines that went wrong but overall i'm pretty pleased with him. Here's the recipe.

    RECIPE:
    Base = DCUC Negative man, torso, arms and legs re-sculpted for that spacesuit look.

    Head = Vintage Bucky O'Hare, ears shaved down and foam for the ear cuffs. It just sits over the head of a DCUC Dr.Midnite.

    Collar = sculpted, stars are the mives old earrings.

    Stars on epalletes = cut out from a fancy watch strap.

    Epalettes and cloak = vintage Bucky, sculpt to blend.

    Upper gloves = Vintage Bucky, sculpt to blend.

    lower gloves = Sculpted.

    Hands = ML Beta ray Bill.

    Belt = Sculpted some random tube for the raised bits.

    Lower legs = DCUC Firestorm, sculpted boots.

    Feet = DCUC Firestorm, sculpted over with foam for the treads.

    Gun = Unsure, maybe transformers.

    Painted with the usual Games workshop paints, diluted and multiple coats. Sealed with superglue and Satin sealer.

    Had a blast trying this new style and I do have plans to do a few more at some point. Thanks for looking and hope you like

    Where are they? Where are your friends now? Tell me about the loneliess of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

    That is one funky fresh rabbit who can take care of it! Well done. Well done indeed. He looks incredible. He looks like he can croak some Toads.

    Cheers people, I was real happy with the results of this experiment and i'll probably use the same paint technique for at least a couple more. Yo definitely gotta love that head sculpt, the 90s may not have been great for articulation but some of the sculpts from that era are amazing!!
