I, like many I am sure, repainted the hair and stache. I did not think about the eyes until I saw yours. Back to the workbench! Very nicely done, looks 100% legit.

One part I really like is that it looks like it popped right out of the animated series but it was still done in a way that it doesn't look animated like the Public Enemies figures. You can see the Neal Adams influence also. Really great job!

Wow, that looks so much better. Didn't expect Matty to make a BTAS version, but I also didn't expect them to phone it in so bad. Way to polish that turd, man.

Sooooo, I gotta ask, why have you not posted more of your customs? You are obviously skilled. I am very curious to see more of your work.

Very nice job and improving that brutally sculpted Ra's...if the 4H aren't going to do a solid job and fight over who gets what character, they may as well send those to you, for you'll do a much better job than they will.

Love this upgrade. The new head sculpt makes this very bland figure into one that I would proudly display on my shelf. Well done!

Wow, thanks everybody! I'm elated that you guys like my custom!

Thanks, man. I'm honoured that you think so highly of my work! To be honest, I don't have tons of customs and the ones I have made, I usually just store away in tubs. Most of the figures I put on the shelf are as the manufacturer intended it but I thought I'd share Ra's since nobody had done one yet with the new figure and also, I ended up putting him on my Bat Villains shelf. To this date, he's the only custom I've put on my display shelf but I'll try to put some more up as I hopefully get time to do more of them!!

Wow Acid, that looks just fantastic! You've inspired me to believe I can make something out of that turd. The work around the eyes is the critical stuff - I think if Huntress's eyes had been done better, more people would love her.
