I missed a commercial
figure like that, showin´ Wolverine as
a cool guy who has seen too much stuff through
the centuries, laconic and without any weakness
for yellow latex. An optical cross between Hugh
Jackman and the drawings of Dan Fraga would
do it, I thought. The body is poor old GI Joe.
I repainted it, gave it `hair´ of painted
hemp and claws of a…no, not that, but of aluminium.
The leather jacket is made of leather, the belt
also, like it should be. The tank top is made
of an old one of mine. Except of the dogtag
the rest is off the peg of other action figures,
sorry. I like this guy and if I find an old
Harry Potter-sword on a flea market someday,
I´ll maybe transplant the sound chip (`Snikt´).
- Season 3
Jacks body, complete with the head, is taken
from a cheap 12” mountainbiker from Asia. I
cut away all that won´t look like Jack
with the Dremel and gave the hair a first finish.
The clothes are hand-tailored by me; Jack Bauer
has a kind of pragmatic style so it was fun
to spent some time on a natural suede jacket
and some socks that suit the colour of his sweatshirt.
The shoes and accessories (walkie-talkie, wrist
watch, gun)are second hand.
Days Of Future Past-Logan
What is it about Logan? For me it´s less
claws, more personality. For a long time I´ve
cultivated the wish for an 12”-figure that shows
the distinguished character of Logan in the
Days Of Future Past-Saga in a grown-up way.
I liked the mimic of Marvel Studios´ Punisher,
seemed to me more interesting than the Punisher
itself. So I bought one at eBay for nine dollars.
After cutting away his multiple broken nose
and some hair-extensions with natural hemp (`this
is biodynamical customizing, man´ ;) I
liked what I saw. Up to this moment I left him
Punisher´s pants. Showed me, that this
kind of Logan is grown out of the old green
pants. I mixed in a little Earth X-inspiration.
That also gave me some extra time for tailoring
a detailed sheepskin jacket (suede and soapwashed
fleece) and a nice holster and belt. Here it
is, my personal DaysOfFuturePastEarthX-Logan
for twelve dollars.
