View Full Version : The Emerald Archer of Star City
Apr 20, '08, 4:38 PM
OK, after backing off the JLA custom line I've been working on, I got back into it with Ollie Queen. I basically ripped off the Errol Flynn costume design from Robin Hood and combined it with the color scheme of the original costume giving him the reddish gloves and boots. I also had to go with the gimmick arrows, I always loved the boxing glove one. He's a Hasbro Ollie with all new costuming and a bow and arrow from Hawkeye. I rigged up an interchangable arrowhead gimmick using snaps glued to the heads and the arrow shaft.
Here he is getting ready to use the Atom bomb arrow
And proving he's got one up on the DCDirect 12 or 13 incher, a full head of hair.

Very cool, very fresh take on an old standard. Absolutely sweet looking figure and an impressive addition to your collection of customs. My personal goal with GA is sometime this year to make one based on the Longbow Hunters saga. Nobody knew the character like Mike Grell.

That's the most threatening expression I've ever seen on a GA
He's like: "Yeah----I'll kill ya"

He looks great Joe, and I love that he has his own action figure!

He is one of the coolest customs you've made (and I don't say that often about DC characters). Super job!
