MU Customs

Recommended Posts

I bought a Invaders Red Skull and X-Force Archangel on Ebay, but they came without accesories.

Having read about Shapeways on other forums, I decided to give it a try and make some replacement accesories for the figures:

 

Fo

I gave my regular Archangel's wings to the X-Force, and made folded ones for the regular:

With X-Force Archangel:

All can be found on my Shapeways shop: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/scrypt

 

I would definitely be buying a pair of Archangel wings if there wasn't a 20 dollar shipping charge. Any chance of you moving to the states so I can get cheaper shipping?`

Even though she turned out how I planned, I'm not happy with her. I'll trade/ sell her if anyone wants her.

I would trade you something, she is sweet!

Funny story, I accidentally clicked on the Marvel Legends thread without realizing it and started to get pissed even saying out loud ,"where the **** is the customs thread!?" LOL

 

Anyway, I did this LBC. A much needed one IMO. Let's be honest, the one Hasbro gave us sucks monkey nuts! I may redo it though because the paint I used is enamel and I did not notice it until well into the project and it didn't take as smoothly as I would like.

 

Body - MU Cyclops

 

Upper Thighs - O.P.P. cast

 

Head MU Sivler Surfer modded

 

Left hand- O.P.P. cast

love it Onyx! have you tried a 'final layer' of silver acrylic over the enamel? would that work to help seal it/dry it up?

I doubt it WS. The torso was so loose on it that it kept spinning in my hand and a few fingerprints cause the paint wasn't dry when I thought it should be. I think it'd be much more productive and simple just to start over.

I was so impressed with the customs I recieved from Legend I felt I had to go ahead and complete the new team. So here is a New group shot of X-Force and my AoA Nightcrawler as a member of X-Force.

wow, that makes a great warlock.

 

I've thought a few times it would be neat to make a Warlock/Douglock/whatever he went/goes by; but I could never come up with a good idea of what to start with. Well, and I'm not really great with tools in my hands.lol

It's not my shop, they 3D-print the designs you upload.

I don't think they charge 20 on shipping, they just require you to buy for $25 minimum, which is why I waited to order until I had different designs which totaled for more then $25

Onyx, maybe your Surfer looks different in person but I think the paint apps look really smooth. I wouldn't redo it unless there's some serious photo trickery going on.

Nah, I don't alter the figure in the images just add the effects. Anyone who has gotten a figure or part from me can attest to that. If you look at his crotch and chest and lower legs you can see what I mean by the paint apps. Kinda went on thick and was tacky.

looks good, did you paint a grey primer or anything for the "tattoo"? Mine isn't bright enough because I painted right over the blue.

Model Master Neutral Grey right over the blue no primer. I used a X-23 X-logo from her belt and just added a little gray over the red. I was really fun completing him this was my first time using Model Master paint and I have to say I will be buy a whole lot more of this stuff.

What kind of paint do you guys use? I've tried the model kit enamels, and like Onyx they don't seem the best way to go. I like that Silver Surfer, although I still can't stand the head sculpt. I haven't seen a Silver Surfer figure I like yet though. It's too bad Hasbro won't made a body just for Silver Surfer that had a sense of the liquid like quality he has.

I use acrylics from Wal-mart. I've been thinking about trying to track down 2 more Scarlet Spidey figs. One for Silver Surfer, and one for an improved Deadpool (though I might make him from a Cyke, or Comm Rogers), and then spray paint the Surfer silver, and the spray that w/ an acrylic clear coat, or I'll try to find some silver acrylic spray paint.
