Off the Workbench: Funko Pop! Juggernaut Custom

I was recently contacted by a friend/client. He wanted me to customize a blank Funko Pop! figure into mega-popular X-Men foe Juggernaut.

Perhaps I should consider changing the name of this site to “Mikael Sculpts and Paints” or something.

Between this and a couple of Mighty Muggs commissions, it looks like the ol’ figure-making business is officially up and running again.

Juggernaut started life as a blank Funko Pop! figure.

This chap, right here.

The details were sculpted on the figure using WaterStop epoxy putty. It’s not just for your roof, kids! The figure also received a brand-new paint job. I used Vallejo acrylic paints.

If you look real closely, you’ll see… my microwave.

I really enjoyed making this one. I used the Marvel Legends Series VI Juggernaut (this guy right here) as my reference. As you can see, I did my best to ensure it would fit in with regular Funko Pops! just fine. The client was really happy with it. Yay me!
