Tiger-Man By NiteOwl
Independent: Jay Cochran - 2011.06.26
This week's TNI Cool Custom, is of a figure based on Atlas Comics' Tiger-Man by NiteOwl. Here is how NiteOwl describes the making of this figures:

"My entry is from the short lived revival of Atlas Comics in the mid 70's. I went searching far and wide for a custom to complete and surprisingly found that most I had an interest in had already been completed.

Then I came across this guy, Tiger-Man!!!

His first appearance had a cover date of April 1975. Gerry Conway is credited for writing two of the issues and Steve Ditko is credited as the cover artist for the above seen image. Unfortunately Tiger-man only lasted three issues then Atlas ceased to exist altogether.

Tiger-Mans alter ego is Dr. Lancaster Hill, a scientist who has isolated the chromosomes that give the tiger its strength and agility. He injects himself, fights and kills a real tiger that has been released to kill the good doctor by a jealous African Witch Doctor and wears the slain animals hide to increase his cunning, phew!
he then returns Stateside and after an attack on his sister he fights evil.

The recipe is DCUC Wildcat for the body, legs and arms.
The hands are from a spare Hal Green Lantern.
I sculpted the head over the original Wildcat.
The hair is from a LOTR Aragon figure.

I had all sorts of drama when the first front of the face collapsed and I had to perform emergency surgery.
I also forgot to take w.i.p. shot."
