Finished Ajax and wanted to share.  2 down, 7 to go.  Let me know what you think.

The belt buckle turned out well.  Good attention to detail with the ear ring.
I'd be tempted to fill in his torso to make the abbs show less and give it a slight material look to it.

Thanks for noticing the small details.  Believe it or not, the base figure is wearing a form fitting tank top - I just painted it black.  With Swan, I had to sand down the shirt edges and wrinkles to make him look shirtless but this time it was just a repaint from white tank to black.  The pics dont really pop the shirt details the way you can see them in person.  Here is the base figure...

Some great work here Uriah. Like Ninth Delegate said before me, the small things like the belt buckle and the earring make Ajax look really realistic. Good work with both Ajax and Swan, and I look forward to seeing the rest of the gang, and maybe more after that?  8)

Probably Cleon but I really want to do Snow too since he has never been officially immortalized in plastic.  One of those two for sure.

Great work. I didn't realize Hugh Jackman resembled James Remar that much. I think face wise the Ajax is better. I think Cleon is gonna be really tough just because of the head dress.

Ha! Hugh doesn't resemble Remar at all.  I took the original head off and sculpted the Ajax head from scratch.  By the time I'm done, I'll have a drawer full of discarded Wolverine heads and claws.  His likeness did come out better than Swans - but I like Swans hair better.  I doubt I'll be able to nail all the faces to look like the actors - I just want to capture the essence so you know who its supposed to be when you see it.

Cleon's headress will actually be a lot easier to sculpt than 80s hairdos - I'm looking forward to it.

If I get around to doing other gangs I might be able to crank out an extra Electric Eliminator for you but I have to warn you commision custom figure work isn't cheap (good work can run you $50-100 easy - these are one of a kind pieces, almost like buying toy prototypes).  When you have a second, PM me a photo of yourself so I can keep an eye out for figure heads that could be modified to resemble you - just in case.

Finished the head modifications on Cleon, did his headress and got all the paint applications done.  Now I'm just waiting on the base figure to come in the mail so I can get the rest done.
