JJ Watt - Houston Texans - Custom McFarlane Sportspicks figures

Being a Wisconsinite, I love my Badgers. So I love any opportunity to make a JJ Watt figure. Luckily, I've recently had three separate requests for different versions of JJ.

First up is JJ Watt from his his college days as a Wisconsin Badger. I work with a good friend of JJ's cousin so he was able to get this signed.





The second order was for JJ Watt in his "battle red" Texans jersey. I went with the same pose as my original Badgers version but added a completely scratch-built arm brace identical to what JJ Watt wore during the 2012 NFL season.


The most recent version is Watt in the "steel blue" jersey doing a "Watt Swat". Given how well this pose fits Watt, I wouldn't be surprised if McFarlane uses this pose for Watt's debut figure. Though if anyone deserves an original sculpt it's Watt.

Jeremy, Like all your Watt figures but of course I like mine the best as the last one shown. Was so pleased with the custom of Cobb as I told you when we e-mail as his figure seems to breathe it's so lifelike and much better than the picture I sent you! As you know, liked it so much I sent you six more for repaints and have three more ready--all Packers. Can't thank you enough for you artistic and realistic works. Regards, Lee Hillman and Go Packers!
