Jack Ryan - President of the United States

Customizing is addictive to me, after a project, or series of projects, if I have to much "down time" without working on something, it really starts to bug me. So I come up with "filler projects" to keep me occupied. A lot of them never get finished, but this was one I started to tide me over after finishing a particularly fulfilling batch of customs and I really liked how he came out.

It was originally just the Indy head on the Henry Jones body with age lines and weathering on the face and a simple paint job, but I eventually went back and modified the torso to find on some GI Joe style legs so he's fit in better and get some height.

Originally, I thought perhaps President Ryan was the one who put together my Sally Squad team... but I've since decided it was President Steve Rogers, aka Captain America.

While I envision him to be based on Harrison Ford's portrayal of Jack Ryan from the "Clancy-verse", my brother insists he's the President from "Air Force One."

Parts Recipe:
Indiana Jones Indy - Head
Indiana Jones Henry Jones Sr. - Torso, Arms, Coat
ROC Cobra Commander - Lower Torso, Legs
Misc Star Wars - Hands

  1. Whether he's Jack Ryan from the "Clancy-verse", or he's the President from "Air Force One." He's one cool custom. Love the amount of work you posted today.

  2. Thanks. Decided to go ahead and pull together all my backlog as I'd like to get my "portfolio" pulled together in a presentable fashion. It's a bit tedious doing all the posts, but it's rewarding to go through and see these all again and get them up on display here. Probably going to finish all the GI Joe style ones, and then start working on posting Star Wars figures again!
