    Sideshow Freddy Krueger SilentSufer style.

    I don't come to this site much anymore, but I got such a great response over at the Freaks forum, that I thought I'd post this here too.

    I loved the SDCC Exclusive Dream Master Freddy. So much better than the original Freddy, and I even like that one pretty well, but this one just looked like more love was put into the sculpt, even without a great paint job.




    However, as much as I loved the body of souls they added to the Dream Master, I felt the sculpt of it was not detailed enough to match the face, but it did look right on the older Freddy. I painstakingly swapped the rubber body sleeve from new to old, tore the old version's shirt to get full use of the nicely done piece, and repainted the rubber sleeve a bit to make it match the head better. That's good enough...


    ...but good enough never is, and I wanted the ultimate Freddy to go with my Michael Myers.

    I really love the head sculpt on the DM Freddy, but the body was the old (not at all Freddy) Buck body. I pulled Fred's head, hands, boots, and clothes off and put them on a Slim Truetype. Perfect body for this wussy looking killer. Took some modding to get the head on the plug-style neck connector, the pants were too long, and the sweater was way too baggy, but the hands worked on the Truetype pegs just fine, especially the gloved hand, I was able to cut the bottoms of the pants to the right length because I was shredding the bottoms anyway, and it just so happened that Mezco's piece of crap 12" deluxe was just being released with the perfect, tighter, shorter sweater with movie accurate striping, unlike Sideshow's with too many stripes and weird spacing.


    After retouching the face, and redirecting the eyes, the only thing I felt the need to do now was to give him actual steele blades, so I cut some from a thin sheet of very rigid steele with a Dremel and shaped them to combine hints of both classic and FvJ style blades.

    Now I think I have the Ultimate Freddy to display next to Myers.

    One other thing I did was straighted his whole index finger to properly achieve this pose.




    I love how well the Slim TT body captures a Freddy pose. And these pictures seem to capture an unusually large headed Freddy, but it isn't.






    But before he meets Mike, he poses for pics with an old frienemy.


    I liked this Jason best cause he's the one that fought Freddy, he's the biggest version of him, and he basically has the original mask on (different straps). However, I can't accept that mask unless it also has the ax cut in the forehead because he got the ax in his head the same night he got that mask. So I added one with the appropriate positioning between holes just like the actual mask.


    And it would be silly to have the ax cut in the mask without having the ax wound in the head. I made it look old and dead, yet slightly healed looking.

    Thanks to Sideshow, and a little guts, I couldn't be much happier with this portrayel of my childhood boogeymen. Although I can still futz with the edges of Freddy's sweater, the brass on his glove needs to be brighter, and he still needs the perfect hat.

    Awesome! My only comment would be to weather his clothes a little more, make them more dirty.

    Love the pose you got Freddy in, really amazing work touching some of that stuff up the way you have. Especially on Freddy, I thought all the ones I've seen made have been missing something and you got the character spot on with your changes especially with that pose.

    Thanks! I did weather the pants some more. And here he is with the old Furnace Environment Sideshow put out for him ages ago.










    I plan to hollow out the bottom of the Furnace, make a bit of an interior with burning coals, and light it up. That will take a while though. Here's a quick Photoshop job.
