Has anyone looked into putting together a Green Arrow from the Arrow Tv show? I'm thinking about it but not sure if the pieces to kitbash even exist.

I'd be interested to see one and have done a little looking for a kitbash but I'm not the best with 1/6 customs and have dropped it. I'd say the best bet is to get one of the awesome sculptors to do a headsculpt/weapons set in the Interest thread.

With the TV series going strong, i bet there will be a figure or at least artwork for Arrow somewhere on SS drawing board

I'm a fan of the show and made a figure based on the main character...

Looks great. I'm not a fan of the makeup 'mask' look, especially since Huntress gets a proper domino mask in the show. Awesome figure though, love most of your work, it's always very unique.

after that season finale, I am craving an official version of this!

That was an epic finale. Hope someone produces a figure. Would fit in well with Bale Bata and MoS Supes on the shelf

Awesome finale, didn't see that coming with Tommy.

Awesome finale, didn't see that coming with Tommy.

Yes, they did a good job with the series. Hopefully it keeps getting better next season.

That custom is great, however I don't see a mass produced one getting made anytime soon.

I had an arrow itch going on after that finale, decided to simply bash a red arrow, in case he shows up in season two or something. Just a stripped down zartan with a TTM19 head, kinda want to find a quiver for him though, zartan didn't come with one :(

I will quote myself now, 7 months on because at the midpoint of season 2 Arrow now has a proper mask. I would be seriously interested in a decent custom version now.

Ive been getting really into this show lately and have decided to make the arrow my next custom figure. I think I worked out a pretty good recipe for him and have all the parts on order.

Jacket: DID Fringe Peter Bishop (Dyed)
Pants: DAM Toys Machete (Dyed)
Hood: ACI White Men's Hoodie
Boots: Dragon Soldat Gordan
Hands: 1966 Batman
Belt/Quiver Strap: Various leather belts from Toy Anxiety
Head: Headplay Oliver Queen
Body: WorldBox Muscle Body

Ironically the only thing I don't have yet is a 1/6 bow and arrows. If anyone could give me a lead on cheap 1/6 arrows id appreciate it.

Thanks!

Pictures to come next week!

It isn't much to look at now I know, but soon this thing is going to be looking pretty cool. Now the biggest thing is waiting for my leather dye to arrive. Can't wait!

Wasn't there a custom that was a complete figure that was sold a while back. I have decided I need Ollie.

I'd say im about 80% done. Unfortunately everything that is left (the quiver, arrows, little details on the suit) is going to take the longest.

That's awesome! Try using arrows from Double Play's Zombie Hunter (TWD Darryl Dixon) Below are some suggestions:

- Double Play 1 6 Zombie Warrior Crossbow Man Walking Dead Crossbow Arrows Set | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Double-Play-1-6-Zombie-Warrior-Crossbow-Man-Walking-Dead-Crossbow-Arrows-Set-/281519051747?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item418bd7d3e3)

- You can use the DC Direct "Comedian" domino mask for the S2-S3 look ---> DCD Watchmen: Comedian - Mask (http://www.toyanxiety.com/dcdwatchmencomedian-mask.aspx)

Thanks guys!

I think im going to go with Shapeways for the arrows. I need 10-15 of them and the Rambo set only has 4.

I saw those, I think you should go with that. What're you gonna use for the bow? Are you gonna go for the masked or paint look?

ShadowX81
12-10-2014, 09:37 AM
Honestly I don't know where I'm going to get the bow from. I'd prefer the season 1 bow as I feel its more distinctive, but finding something similar has been hard.

As for the mask, I'd like to get a mask but have no clue what would be a good match. All I know is I'd like it to be removeable so I can take the hood down.

I finished the quiver last night, all I have do track down now (besides the above) is the hip holster. Finding a match has been harder than I thought.

Headplay Oliver Queen. $30 on eBay.

hows the resemblance?

ShadowX81
12-11-2014, 05:00 PM
Pretty good. Its a bit "Tonner-esqe" in its slightly feminine features and its a smidge too small for the body, but overall a great buy for the price and by far the best option for Oliver Queen.

What pants did you use?

ShadowX81
12-29-2014, 06:54 PM
Since ive been getting a few PMs about the recipe:

Jacket: DID Fringe Peter Bishop (Painted)
Pants: DAM Toys Machete (Painted)
Hood: ACI White Men's Hoodie (Dyed)
Suit details: Leather belts cut up to the right shape and super-glued on.
Boots: Dragon Soldat Gordan
Hands: 1966 Batman
Belt/Quiver Strap: Various leather belts from Toy Anxiety
Head: Headplay Oliver Queen
Body: TTM-19
Quiver: Custom made. Basically just bent some metal to the right shape, glued some sandpaper on for texture and painted it black.
Hood details: 1/8 elastic cord colored green with a sharpie.

If anyone has any other questions feel free to ask. Overall cost me about $150 to put together, with a good chunk of that being the body.

Thanks for the recipe. I've gotten most of the list except the boots and bow. What one did you use?

ShadowX81
12-30-2014, 10:05 AM
For the bow, im going to use the Rambo bow from ebay and paint it black. Its not a perfect match, but the closest one available.

There really aren't any great source's for the arrows. Your options are essentially Shapeways or wait for the new Hot Toys Hawkeye to come out.

Hey. Nice custom. What kind of paint did you use to paint the jacket and pants?

ShadowX81
02-09-2015, 05:53 PM
Thanks man. Honestly it was just dark green spray paint right off the shelf at Michaels. Coat lightly and give it a generous amount of time to dry and it looks great.
