Like a couple other customs I’ve done, Deadman is a character I unfortunately know little about. Since he’s visually so striking a character I had no choice but to make a custom version of him. Well, there’s that. And also I happened to have some spare parts I needed to use up.

For Deadman I used the Metal Gear Psycho Mantis figure as a base. The head is reworked with Kneadatite to give him a more defined skull. The clear vinyl collar finishes off a relatively simple custom.

The Deadman custom is loosely based on the Alex Ross Kingdom Come Deadman. Though it’s not 100% accurate, I’m still mostly pleased with the results. If anything, the posturing on the custom is way too stiff to convey the acrobatic nature of the character.
