After a few months break I'm back with a new customs project. I finally watched the entirety of the TV series Lost over the summer and it immediately became my favorite TV show of all time. Being a fanboy I immediately looked for the merchandising surrounding this series and I was quite disappointed to find out that Lost has been completely shafted in the action figure department. First up was McFarlane's 2005 series of boring states which go for way too much on Ebay, and now Bif Bang Pow is using their acquisition of the license to make awkward looking Mego style figures of the Lost cast. Anyway, like a true customizer I decided that I'd channel my disappointment into making my own Lost figures. I'm going to be using the modern G.I. Joe figures as a base for this project, because that is the toyline which has the most figures in clothing appropriate for making these characters.



First up is the southerner armed with a full arsenal of nicknames- James "Sawyer" Ford.



RECIPE:

Head: G.I. Joe 25th Sgt. Airborne

I've never seen the show, but he certainly looks like your reference pic. Maybe give hime the 5 O'Clock shadow and it will propel him to the next level?

Thanks. I don't know why I completely overlooked the beard. Maybe if I ever touch up this figure or make a different figure of Sawyer I'll include the 5'oclock shadow.

After being interrupted by life for a while I finally got to get back to work on a few Lost figures I started a while back.



One of the more mysterious figures from the early years of Lost, viewers only knew this character as the guy who showed up on all of those weird videos the Oceanic 815 crew kept finding down in the hatch. As the seasons progressed, we learned that his name was Dr. Chang, that he was an astrophysicist for the Dharma Initiative living on the Island during the 70s, and that he was the father of future player Miles Straume.











RECIPE:
Head: Storm Shadow Paris Pursuit
Torso and Arms: XMO Wolverine Movie Sabertooth
Hands: Thor Movie Odin
Legs: POC Movie Cobra Commander
Lab Coat: ROC The Doctor

Undoubtedly the most enigmatic of the Oceanic 815 tail section survivors, Mr. Eko is a soft-spoken yet powerful figure. Driven by a religious conviction that was spurred on by his checkered past, Eko walks around the Island with his “Jesus Stick,” a walking staff onto which he carved Bible verses. Despite his spiritual inclinations, Eko is not unwilling to kill in order to protect his fellow survivors and make decisions which have the potential of either saving or destroying everyone on the Island.



RECIPE:
Head and Hands: ROC Heavy Duty
Torso, Legs, and Jesus Stick: ROC Storm Shadow Arctic Assault
Arms: ROC Sgt. Stone
Shirt: Indiana Jones Cemetery Warrior

Wait, Crystal Skull figures have uses besides riding on fire crackers? dry.gif

It's a good use of a part here.

^Thanks cool.gif




Okay, grumble all you want about me making such a minor character like Caesar before making a Locke or a Kate, but as the only Lost actor besides Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje/Eko who was in Rise of Cobra, I absolutely had to make him.

One of the Ajira Flight 316 survivors, Caesar took initiative on the shores of Hydra Island by assuming a leadership role and debating with Frank about what they should do following the crash. Ceasar’s days as leader were short-lived, however, as he soon found himself on the wrong end of a conflict with Benjamin Linus.



RECIPE:
Head: ROC Breaker
Torso, Legs, and Shirt: XMO Wolverine Movie Wolverine
Arms: 25th Comic Pack Red Star
