Or should I say Fast "to get injured" Willie. Anyway I'm just getting back into the swing customizing these things. Did a repaint of the Mcfarlane black jersey Parker. Is it just me or is the quality of these figures really diminished? I did not repaint the gloves, arm bands or face. I did add detail into the muscle definition however as well as some light color to the tattoo. Comments welcome

Looks awesome. Hey BTW, could you make changes to the Clinton Portis's figure to Parker? U know, the one with Ray Lewis is falling & Parker's making a jump?

Sure can. I don't have that set in stock but If you want to do it we can make it happen. Tell ya what else would be awesome and I may do this one on my own. James Harrison and Lamar Woodly having a QB sandwich.

:applaudit::tt:VERY nicely done. :tt02: :applaudit:

I just started down this path. Bought a box of McFarlane parts off Ebay and a bunch of enemy players I hope to make custom Steelers. I figure I have my retirement hobby activity mapped out.

Would you mind sharing your paint and decal process for a rookie?

Do you use "stock" McFarlane figures, parts of, or all of the above? I've looked at the McFarlanes to date and I'm trying to visualize how you'd get JH and LW into the "hit" position without some major surgery to existing figures.

Sometimes you need to do some pretty intense sculpting to get what your looking for.

:tt03:Thats REALLY NICE Allstar!!:tt03:

You know whats annoying about the FWP McFarlane? Its scaled too big. I realize they're all scaled to 6", but the FWP figure takes on the dimensions of something (6'5". 315lb) we REALLY need in our backfield compared to other McFarlanes. His legs are proportioned more like JB's than FWP's. But I have one and I like it.

Who would you use as subjects for these? I can possible see DeMarcus Ware as Woodley, but James? He has an unusual build. Reminds me of a heavy set Burt Reynolds - long torso, short legs.

Here's a challenge for the Master - I want to do an Ernie Stautner down the road once I learn a bit about this craft. Right now I think the subject might be the Jim Brown. They were about the same size and build. And the helmet works. The problem is the uni. Those drawers were baggy. Kleenex? Putty? Both?

Man nobody has bid on the fast Willie yet. Hmmm thought with the autograph that it would go but oh well. Anyway to anwer your question about Harrison the ware figure is exactly what I play to use. for a single figure of him since I have one of his autographed inserts left. As for the sack figure I would just mix and match various parts to get what I want. And do alot of sculpting if need be. Now for the older figure I have never done the kleenx trick but I would just sculpt it in with apoxie. If you need any older series McFarlanes let me know I have a ton of them
