RED HOOD – a - rama
First up, Classic Red Hood:
I got commissioned to redo the Red Hood figure I did in 2011. Here is the figure I did in 2011:
And Here is the Commission figure I just finished for the customer:
Classic Red Hood
Base figure is a DC Universe Mr Terrific. Head is sculpt by me (this time I cast it!), Pant legs Sculpt, Gloves come from a Jonah Hex Quinten figure, boot tread added to the feet as well.
Next, Movie Concept Red Hood:
While doing this figure/ and waiting for epoxy to dry and paint to dry I worked on another Red Hood, but a Movie Concept Red Hood this time. For this figure I started with a DC Universe Superboy, Added a Batman Dark Knight torso, Belt from a DC Direct Long Halloween Batman with Plasticard Belt Buckle, Gloves from DC U. Jonah Hex, Boots from the Batman Dark Knight figure, straps added for glove and boot details, the straps kind of have a Kevlar texture. Holsters are from my fodder bin, and they are attached the the thighs of the figure. I sculpted the belts going up the the waist, so that the holsters don’t hinder any of the figures articulation.
His Head is obviously from Iron Man. I shaved it down, cut the front off and re-sculpting, and then I scribed in the Red Hoods iconic mask lines. I wanted to keep the eyes and the ear sections of the iron man head inplace, because I think they add to the “Movie” concept genre’ I was aiming for!
The Sleeve cuffs come from a Mcfarlane Terminator figure, sculpt to blend them in. The SuperBoy figure has these elastic cuffs and I hated em, so that needed to be fixed!
Now on to the extras:
Red Hood comes with a plethora of accessories including a Bike with mounted Chain fed miniguns! Huzz!
(2) holsterable pistols
(2) sub-machine guns
(2) night stick /tazer combos
The Bike is a 1:12 scale dicast piece, had decals and the words Ninja on the back. I took those off with some nail polish and gave it a black wash over spray to dirty it up a little bit (it was so clean looking) Mini guns are mounted via screws into the side panel/fender of the bike. The mini guns come from Iron Man 2 WarMachine.
Movie Concept Red Hood is UP on the AUCTION BLOCK: Ebay:packratstudios | eBay
