Huck Gee has released images of a new custom he's done, entitled "The Jungle Poacher." Based largely on his previously made piece "The Rhino Poacher" for the Huck Gee Project, this revision seems every bit as impressive.

The rider will be familiar to Gee fans, the character known as Hicks who has gone through various incarnations over the years. Traditionally he's built off of a 7" Bub Munny figure and that certainly appears to be the case here. His accessories are stellar, from the spear he's holding and the wicker helmet on his head to his cloth suit and pelt cape. The rhino is an original sculpt by Gee, which is just as flawless as a production model.

The traditional bird that rides upon Hicks's head now resides ontop of the steed, a rhino that looks none-too-happy. Probably because his horn has been cut off by his rider, a true poacher that will do anything for a simple dollar. Some have remarked that this is the first piece of social commentary by Gee in his works and — while they might be right — it is still a brilliantly twisted concept that anyone can appreciated.

  

That's a bundle of rhino horns you can see strapped behind the saddle, as well as a banner flag and sword. My favorite element, though, are the knuckle tattoos which read "Horn Core." This roughly 20" tall custom was a commissioned one-off, so — alas — we will just have to make do with looking at the pictures.

    "Get in the damn robot, Shinji." Rotobox are some of the most talented customizers around. And given that they pull their influces from cult classics and pop culture favorites, it's no wonder why their work is such a crow-pleaser. This newest custom Celsius is no exception.

    Jon-Paul Kaiser follows up his ship in a bottle themed 3" Sketchup Dunny (originally by SketOne) with this new custom. This one is specifically influenced by Moby Dick, replacing the previous version's skull / octopus with the book's whale.
