MU Customs

Recommended Posts

Greetings.

 

Well, just wrapped up my latest commission and I thought I'd share it with ya, the current-look cat-face version of Hank McCoy, The ever lovin' Beast!

 

Details after yon gallery:

When my loyal customer requested this figure, it really threw me. I literally had no clue how to go about it. The SS version wouldnt work as a base for this look, so I was clueless.

 

I thought about buying a plastic cat toy and cutting off the head, I thought about trying to remold the animated figure (BAD idea, that figure has TERRIBLE articulation) and who knows WHAT else.

 

After brainstorming for a couple of days, I stumbled across what would become the body: A Mark Henry WWE figure. It had the right body type, big, not fat, strong yet not chisled.

 

I cut off his toes and fingers. I sanded his poor wittle face right down. He got a bit of a shave and hair cut, then I went to work with Apoxie Sculpt, forming new feet, fingers, face, ears, hair and fur all over his body. A few coats of paint later and x-symbols later and voila.

 

It's pretty much a cross between his last two costumes. The current one was way too complicated for me to invest that kind of time into, and the last one always looked kinda creepy to me, so here's a good blend of the two.

 

He has removable goggles, a high tech med-pistol of some sort, a wrist package complete with retractable saw and the techy backpack.

 

Please do let me know any critisicms or critiques you may have.

 

Thanks!

I decided Steve needed his friend and started brain storming figures. There aren't allot of bald figures, and there aren't allot of Asian figures then you try combining the list, and well that pretty much comes up zero. So I went and bought the most availlable Asian figure RoC Stormshadow and shaved his head.

Can anyone tell me how to take apart a MU action figure without damaging it. I would like to make some customs, but I don't want to break the figure in the process. I also would like to know which heads go with MU figures. For instance star wars 2 pack heads go with MU but not Origins. So any custom knowledge would be great.

Any 3.75" head can work you just need to fill the ball joint or dremel it out. As for taking them apart I've heard they come apart easily if you soak them in boiling water.

MU Dormammu

Ok this is a really simple custom Take an SW Human Torch and slap some purple on him. I used a metallic purple for magical effect, and left some orange show through for the flamed look. I based him off of the ToyBiz Marvel History The Dark Side Dormammu figure

I have a question to ask you guys. I'm taking a small break from marvel customs at the moment and I'm working on a Kakashi Sensei from Naruto figure. It's in the MU scale so I was wondering if anyone would mind if I posted it here when I'm done?

I got the new comic pack Hulk in a trade. I like this head, although, I found it to be a tad too thin. So i am in the process of making it look more like the comic versions I remember. When done, I will put it on the modified Hulk body I made.

Hey I had this really good idea for a nick fury custom, I am using a shield agent and mace windu's head which is Sam Jackson. It should look pretty cool when I am done. My question is. When u fill the ball joint, what do you fill it with & do I simply put the substance in the head & put the ball neck joint into the filled head... I dunno.. So a little help would be cool

What did you fill the ball joint with? I ussually use cyano-acrylate/ super glue to tighten it and thentake them apart to let the glue dry so it doesn't glue it to the body.

There's lots of ways to do this. You can put Vaseline on the ball and fill the neck socket with hot glue, then trim the excess after it hardens. Vaseline is kinda messy though as well as hot glue. What I usually do is take a little ball of green stuff or whatever sculpt material I am using. I place the ball f sculpt in the socket then I wet the neck ball with either water or brush a little Pam cooking spray on it. Then I mash it into the socket while twisting slightly. Then I just leave it to cure. Much easier, less time consuming, and less messy than the hot glue technique. I also find it makes a more snug fit.

After buying the Secret Wars 2 pack i had another classic armor ironman. So i gave him to my friend to customize and 2 days later he bought the Silver Centurion over. I really like it especially the repulsor chest area. He molded new shoulder pads, groin area and leg armor. He also smoothed out the glove area. tell me what you think guys.

The photo quality isnt too good though, im pretty crap at taking photos.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
