I don't know much about this character. I know he was one of the first to break the fourth wall inside of continuity, but I've always liked the way he looked. I think you've really done him...(wait for it) justice.

Finally finished my Sgt. Rock custom (actually, he's been done for about a month, but I've been too busy to take any photos)! I'm pretty proud of how this one turned out. Any feedback is appreciated!

Feedback, huh?!?!? How about... Freackin' Awesome!!!

By the way, what did you use for the Helmet and do they come in fighter Pilot style?
It would make my day if I could give my Secret Origin Hal Jordan his own Fighter Pilot Helmet!

Whoa!!! That is fantastic. I was just talking with my buddy this weekend about how that's my #1 choice for a JLU custom. Just a great job, man. Any interest in making another? :D

Ed that is one heck of a great job. You really should stop by and share that one with the gang over at Custom Justice. That is one well done custom!

Thanks, he was my #1 choice, too! Ambush Bug was really just a warm-up. I might be convinced to make more of these for people, but between the cost of materials, and the number of hours I invested in this guy, I think it would either be a losing proposition on my end, or the price tag would end up unreasonable for most people. All the big-boy customizers must be lightning fast to make it worth their while! Maybe after I get a little quicker with this, we can talk!

How about... Thanks! A lot!
Funny you should ask about the helmet. I'm about to drop a bomb on you (although I suspect some people must already know this): The G.I. Joe Sgt. Savage line is a G**D*** goldmine for customizing JLU! I was all set to sculpt a helmet (and I was dreading it) when I remembered I had a box of Savage guys laying around, and decided to test it just for the heck of it. I didn't think they'd work, but the scale is perfect! Some slight modifications later, and Sgt Rock not only has a sweet helmet, but his exact right weapon besides! There's even a helmet that already has the stripes (but the colors didn't match, so I painted my own)! There IS a fighter pilot helmet (although it came with the plane, so it could get pricey)! There are M1s, Lugers, and 9mm pistols, too! A GOLDMINE, I tell ya!

And Tex, I'm totally going to get signed up over at CJ. I think I'm ready now. :D

An-Gel, loving the Swamp Thing!

Thanks Ed! Good to know that the Joes have the same size noggin as JLU. And as far as mass producing the figures... I think Stew and company do it by making a casting of the original and then a couple of castings of the first casting. That way, one begets three and three beget more. The painting on the other hand, takes time. That's the real downside.

Batman with painted inner cape and belt
Another JLU Bane with TNBA Nightwing legs.
Poison Ivy with original Hawkgirl body w/ BatStew head cast of a Casmire custom.

This Poison Ivy with scalloped boots, was made by grtwhitecustoms, using my body recipe.
I like her with straight arms.

You can't really see it in this photo, but the detail on his face is sculpted on as well. I'll put up some better pics when I get around to signing up at Custom Justice.
