Fan Artist Creates Diabolical Custom ‘The Boys’ 1/6 Scale Figures

HR is back at it again with another incredible project reveal, and this one is particularly diabolical.

Though he’s created fan art for a variety of fandoms, Handsome aka HR is best known for the very impressive collection of Supernatural figures that he’s produced over the years. HR’s careful attention to detail and passion for his craft shines through clearly in his creations, and fans of his work always wait with eager excitement when he teases an upcoming reveal.

Today, HR shared his latest epic creations — a collection of custom 1/6 scale figures for five characters from the hit Amazon Prime Video series The Boys. The figures, which include Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), M.M. (Laz Alonso), Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), and Frenchie (Tomer Capon), all have hand-sculpted heads with an extraordinary likeness to the actors that portray the characters. Each of them also have customized clothing and accessories.

When asked about his latest project, HR told Nerds and Beyond,

“I started watching ‘The Boys’ on Amazon when it released its first season and ever since I’ve been hooked. I couldn’t decide on which character I wanted to make because I love them all for different reasons. I decided to embark on my biggest project yet which is to do five figures in 4 months. ‘The Boys’ fandom is so creative and so much fun that I wanted to create something with my own signature. I’m delighted people like them!”

The Boys is based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Created by Supernatural‘s Eric Kripke, this action-packed satirical superhero series is not for the faint of heart. The show is set in a universe where superheroes exist, reigning like celebrities to the public, but many are deviously corrupt behind closed doors. Arguably the worst of them all can be found amongst The Seven, a group of Supes working under the villainous corporation Vought International. Cue the Boys, a ragtag group of vigilantes risking their lives to bring down Vought and the Supes once and for all.

Season 3 of The Boys is set to begin filming soon in Toronto, Ontario. The premiere date is currently unknown. Fans of Supernatural can look forward to an appearance this upcoming season by Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, the original superhero.

Stream seasons 1 and 2 of The Boys now, only on Amazon Prime.
