Hey Guys,

This One's 2&1/2 Yrs in the Making,.. Anthony Knows. ;) I wasn't able to make him before,.. when I tried too. But all thats Been Fixed Now. ;D

Heads a DC 9" Aquaman Head,.. same One I used for Spartan, But this Time I sculpted over the Ears,.. & added the Visor. BTW,.. I molded the Head, if anyone is interested. There is no NeckPlug though,.. it comes with the Ball joint & string. :) Gonna Make the head into a Cyclops too. :D Custom Body mixed with some Doc Mego Legs. Hand Sewn Suit. Sculpted his Ring. Box From Toyroom. His Blue's a Little Darker,.. than in the Pic. :)

Dude....stop making figures I want! :yes: It's been quite a while that I thought you did tackle this figure already...I forgot about the "stumbling blocks". :smiley1: Well worth the wait though! Are ya gonna re-do your Blue Beetle to go along with the Gold?

One of your stumbling blocks had to be figuring out that suit with the collar. Nice job on the execution Jason -

I am not a big fan of the comic Booster Gold figure, but you did a great job on this custom. You absolutely nailed him. I like everything about it. Nice work.

I never was big into reading comics so I am not familiar with a lot of the characters that I see here. Although a lot of the customs that I do see here from time to time still look great to me even if I do not know who they were. Nice job. Even know I am unfamiliar with the characters role he still looks neat. I am kind of bummed a bit that you "stold" (kidding of course) my bling ring idea. That looks like a big rock on his finger. What is that about a 5 carrat in Mego scale? :grin: Now I am "still" stuck with the question what will my Money Man custom do now for a weapon? :smiley1: Seriously though you did a nice job on your custom.

It's a Legion Flight Ring...Booster lifted it from the Space Museum in the 30th Century where he was a janitor, before he travelled back in time to the 20th Century and became the hero he is today...BWAH HA HA!

top notch sewing,
i'm still trying to figure out how you got the suit on the body.
did you put on the pants then the top and then sew the two together?
looks great

Cool, cool figure.

I'd always liked the character from the Giffen/McGuire Justice League. I tentatively had one planned for me to make in the near future, so thanks Jason. You've set the bar so high I may not attempt my own:wink_y:

Actually I was going to look into getting some clear material or plastic or frisket paper that could be colored yellow to see his eyes. I was thinking perhaps a very clear tupperware container cut into the shape of his visor and then use a yellow marker on the underneath side.

Meanwhile, excellent figure.

If you say so. :smiley1: You could have told me anything I would not have been any wiser to the fact. Thanks for the info though. It is good to know for someone like me who has no idea at all. :smile:

You know, I only recognize about half of the characters you make customs of. But, the are so well done that I would buy each and every one of them if they were on store shelves, even if I did not know the character. Bravo! :clap:

How DID you sew that suit? It defies gravity...

Can't go wrong with blue and yellow. What a pretty figure.

^ Oh yeah, what about Skeets?! :yes: You can swipe one from the DC Direct "52" figure..it should be in scale.

^^^ I do want that figure,.. in December When I tried to get him from my Comicbook Guy,.. He was all sold out. :ugh_y:

It's funny,.. When I finished the figure,.. My son who's 8,.. looked at him as well,.. & said ''where's Skeets.'' ,.. I was like ,.. ''How'ed you Know this Guy ????!'' ... He Smirked at me ,.. & Stated,.. "He was on Justice League Unlimmited Daddy. " I had forgotten. :smiley1:

Big thanks Guys,.. The suit was Minipulated in 2 piece,.. Thats how it got on the figure. :wink_y:
