This is a small picture series I'm starting, as un-original and un-imaginative i am, i decided to remake a certain G-King Contact from the Criminal faction.

I will be doing other contacts in the future (Probably Open Beta or Full Game). Keep in mind this is for entertainment purposes, please do NOT troll and give complete un-constructive criticism to this work. Constructive criticism is always welcome, though.

That's some good work there.

And it's a good thing you kept those screenshots from the old game, because as you know it would be against the CBT NDA agreement you signed if these were recent screenshots from the current beta. But you know that, right? :) *HINTHINT*

But yeh, seriously like it mate, can't wait to see how accurate you can get some of the others... after the NDA is lifted for OBT / Live launch, of course :P

I hope those aren't screen shots from the current beta which is forbidden by the NDA...

While a couple of hours ago i did finish making Javez in CB, these screenshots however are NOT from Closed Beta of APB: Reloaded.

These screenshots were taken from the original game.

Hehe, I was thinking about recreating Grissom a few weeks before the game shut down.
He'd be a lot easier to create than Javez, though. Good job!

Getting Javez's Checker tattoo on his right hand (Thanks to Lulu in game for helping with the tattoo) is a HUGE pain, adding on how much complexity his clothes take up. I actually couldn't use the Zoosh T-Shirt so i just had to make a yellow shirt with black stitches.

For me, Grissom and Javez are honestly the most bada$$ looking contacts in the game. They both look like their own faction.

There's a lot of people saying it's un-original and stupid to re-create characters. But, at the end of the day it's fun and most people will be amazed by how you pulled it off (If you pull it off near-perfect the better).

I've just made an Enforcer so i might Re-create Grissom or LaRocha during this week, got a lot of work to do for the preset clothes, though.

I appreciate all the feedback. Feel free to request contacts for me to make, i will do my best to re-create them identically.

As for the 100 pages APB story thing I've read in the past, i really hope G1 gives the contacts some great back story, if they ever decide to pull that off.

LaRocha is basicly impossible, because his headwear/hair combination can not be reproduced.

Mhm, you're right there. I don't get why they did that, same with Javez. Javez's Mohawk has actual hair under it, where as in the persona editor you just have a big bald spot there.

Don't give up on LaRocha just because of the hat! Just use hairstyle 2. (At least it's 2 in open beta). I'm trying as we speak, but it's been really hard to find the Iron Cannon Skull that's on his shirt. I'd like to see what people come up with, knowing up front it's impossible to be identical.

Whoa Man AWSOME!!!!!!! dude iv been planning to make this guy too, so it was cool when i saw someone else had! 1 question did you have to be premium to make him? oh yeah and can you release the formula on youtube or something. (the formula being how to make him) oh yeah, and about la Rocha... well the thing is: 1 he has a gun on his back, 2 he has different hair (as mentioned above) 3 he has tons of custimisation on his trousers, (e.g a brazil sticker, handcuffs, etc) and he also has a unique beanie (but thats only really noticeable if you look for it). but i mean feel free to try and make him. (no sarcasm)
in my opinion, Seung Bloodrose looks BAD@$$!!! i don't know whether you've see hom or not, but if you havn't check him out!
So anyway awsome job, keep up the great work, and i hope to see a fromula on youtube!! :D
