My “Hunter’s Guild” series of customs inspired by the Star Wars Bounty Hunters is complete with my version of the reptilian Bossk.
The Bossk costume (which was actually recycled from an old Dr. Who costume – bit of sci-fi trivia there) is basically a yellow flight suit with a white chest piece. I tried to honor that by using the white “cloth” torso from a Sir Gideon with some armor pieces that were painted gold. Rather than use the normal white loin piece from Gideon, I went with a piece from a Veriticus figure from Stan Winston’s Blood Wolves. I liked worn and torn look of that piece and it worked well for this brutal character. I also used some other ML pieces to try to get the look I wanted for Bossk, including a neck collar from Silverhorn Sentry, which I painted with red metallics so it would reflect the red collar that Bossk had. I also used some barbarian forearms painted to match the rest of the characters “skin”, and I painted other pieces black, to once again reflect the design of the original costume. The hands are from a Marvel Legends Sauron BAF and the feet are a custom from Marcus Akin (interestingly, those feet were cast from the Star Wars Black Series Bossk, so they are appropriate here).
I considered a few different options for Bossk’s head, including a Bog Goblin and a Marvel Legends Lizard, but in the end I settled on a custom piece from Kevin Delies. This was actually a piece I got during his “Black Friday” sale, so I had to prep it a bit and paint it, but I think it looks great as a Mythic Legions Bossk.
