Hey everyone!

My TMNT Classics turtles felt a little lonely, so I wanted to give them some company. Enter: Casey Jones!

Posted Image

I had the idea when I got the new NECA Rambo figure, who's build and clothes reminded me of Casey. Combining parts from Rambo, some other figures and the vintage Playmates Casey Jones, and sculpting all the added details (like his hood, ripped sections on the shirt and pants). I found the accessories in various places - McFarlane Sports figures and Fisher Price doll house sets. I gave him his broken bat, golf club and golf bag...and I added a few accessories as well to bulk up his arsenal.

Recipe:
Head & Shoulder pad - Playmates Casey Jones
Upper Torso - NECA Rambo
Lower Torso - NECA Rocky
Arms - Expendables 2 Gunnar Hansen
Legs - NECA Rambo
Feet - NECA Sin City Kevin

Now, on to the pics!

Thank you all! He was a lot of fun to put together. I'm going to add some new studio shots soon -- I hit him with another coat of matte finish to cut down the little bit of glare -- and some WIPs.

Fugayzie - Thank you! I've been a fan of your work for a long time. It means a lot that you like it!

Bond - Thanks, dude! Where you been?!

Lady Jaye - I said the same thing when I put the vintage head on the body. I was amazed how well it fit proportionally and how well it matched aesthetically.

Hauke, JoeRhyno, gruntcast and spidersam - Thanks!
