I’m just starting a thread on it because I’ve ordered it, and won’t be unboxing, posing, and photographing it until Christmas Day, but I know I’m going to dote on it until then.

As we know, Keanu Reeves has signed to make a sequel to the 2005 Constantine film. Personally I’m delighted at that because I really like the 2005 movie despite some of it’s weaknesses. It’s surprisingly rich lore-wise. I appreciate that it just jumps into the world and shows you the character doing his thing. You have to make inferences about what’s going on at times regarding heave and hell, but it all seems to work. I liked that. The performances are good.

I know some would prefer the comic book version of the character, a Brit who‘s inspired by Sting. But I‘ve never read a single Constantine comic. Although I have watched the animated JL Dark movie. But anyway, I have no such bias. And I’m a big Keanu Reeves fan.

Keanu has said he‘s really hyped to return to playing the character again. I‘m crossing my fingers that this has the potential to be a big hit for the DCU.

I have plans to mod this figure. I’m going to replace the body with a worldbox body that has continuous hands on the forearms. The stock forearms are just cylinders. I want to be able to pose him thusly:

Which will require painting the tattoos on his forearms.

Here’s what the stock forearms look like:

And what the worldbox forearms look like:

You’ll want that WB AT020 with the ridiculous butterfly joints that give a huge range of motion. I doubt any other body would be able to connect the forearms in that way.

Thanks! Good to know about the range of motion for the shoulders! Because that pose will be tough to pull off I’ll bet.

This I guess is the symbol used for his forearm tattoos? Same on both forearms and when he brings them together they form two halves of the same symbol?

Well, I pulled the trigger on the Worldbox AT020S body with seamless forearms/hands.

And I also decided to get this custom head sculpt as well:


It’s most likely a recast of the excellent AKS head sculpt which is shown in these photos. But from what I’m hearing sometimes it works out really well depending on the paint job. Here's hoping that the paint job is as good as the prototype!
