I finally finished a custom figure I was working on.
His name is Barnacle Bastard - The Great White Assassin.
This figure was a lot of fun to create. I used a doll body, the front half of an Imaginext skeleton shark, a handle pull shark toy, a gun from the MOTU vehicle Land Shark and a couple random pieces I found while taking the dog for a walk.
Watch the video to show concept art and figure review for close up details and such.
Below I added some process pictures and a drawing I did of the character.
Rough first draft of his back story:
Barnacle Bastard is an old and very dangerous assassin. At a young age he was captured by the government for a tag and release, but instead they decided to experiment on him. They cut off his fins and attached arms of mass destruction. One arm a powerful laser gun and the other a radioactive shark skeleton that shoots plasma energy ghost sharks. (what's left behind from these is not a pretty sight). He was given a human brain with very high IQ and trained in all manner of martial arts and fighting techniques by Navy seals and a very secretive and deadly group of Buddhist monks. His body is covered in barnacles and other ocean vegetation. He is very patient and has been known to lay on the ocean floor for months at a time in wait of the perfect opportunity to strike his victim. No one knows for sure if he is immortal but nothing has been able to kill him yet.
