This was a commissioned piece for someone who wanted a 6″ scaled F-Zero Captain Falcon action figure, based on his alternate black outfit from the Nintendo game Super Smash Bros. Melee. For the base, I used a DC Universe Classics Batman, with the boots from an Arkham City Batman, the head of a DC Universe Classics Flash, and the belt/gun from a DCUC Starman. The head, boots, torso, and arms were sculpted onto with meticulous detail using Aves Apoxie Sculpt, with his visor being made of sheet polystyrene. Then the figure was painted with the colors matching the video game reference.
I wanted to give this piece something extra, so I decided to make a Falcon Punch accessory effect. It was sculpted using hot glue, over his arm so it would perfectly fit. I had to cover the arm with cling wrap first so the glue wouldn’t stick to it, and I used some clear packing tape as the guides for the wings and tail. This was a long and delicate process that I feel really paid off. Then I painted it using clear yellow, orange, and red for the fiery effect. And now Captain Falcon is ready to take on any challenger!
