Wesley Gibson from Wanted

Fresh out of uni and looking for work, I had a wonderful email asking to commission me to make a custom figure of Wesley Gibson from the graphic novel Wanted. I love that comic - the film doesn't exist in my eyes - and Wesley is a great character with an awesome look. I was commissioned because of an older figure I'd made in my second year at uni of him... I'm not even going to post the side by side shot, he's so bad. It was so damn hard letting this guy go - he has an interchangeable head, his pistols can be stored in his holsters, and the knives in his backpack are removable so you could even replicate his fantastic finishing move from the book. If you haven't read it, I'm not going to spoil it for you. But trust me, this guy is badass.

I converted a Marvel Legends New Goblin figure, used a Captain America head, and swapped the hands from a Nick Fury figure. The rest of the detail is all hand sculpted, as were the knives. Aside from the four clip pouches on his front, all the pouches and pockets are removeable and can be placed in any of the holes across his webbing, to mimic the various ways he's kitted out through the book. I supplied him with a veritable arsenal of weapons and waved farewell as he departed.


  1. Amazing blog Sam, keep up the good work!

    I never knew you were into the Warhammer universe, I am huge fan!!!
    Please PLEASE don't stop doing Warhammer figures, Striking Scorpion was pure eye candy.
    And if you have time, it would be awesome to see other characters from Wanted.

    Good luck with your journey into the toy industry, I vouch for your success.
