MU Customs

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Clam! That's good to know. Did you use any tool or anything to get the arms off? I feel this serious resistance. Maybe I need to let the figure soak a little longer so that the plastic is seriously spongy...

I usually do most of my customizing on my days off, and after my kids have gone to bed. So I just soak the fig in a cup of straight hot water for about a minute, and then grab onto the arm wrapping it in my underwear w/ my left hand, and then pull the body w/ my right hand. It just pops right out usually. The only figs that really gave me trouble were the Iron Man figs. I had to soak those for about 2 minutes, but the cap figs are usually ready to pop after about a minute.

Tooooo big... but track down the 90 Hulk line Wendigo and he's perfect.

 

There is a 6-inch Sasquatch in the Toy Biz: Alpha Flight sub-line from around 1999/2000!

nice dr.fate rod, that mold is so awesome, was thinking of making that custom using the old cyclops fig from the secret wars 2 pack with hulk, decided against it since it looks a bit stumpy

lol @ the stretch strike venom comment. That's Man-Thing right? He looks pretty good.

 

@ Onyx. I think you accomplished what you were going for. You gave magneto a nice spin.

 

Thanks bro. I think I'll change the head after my sarcastic GF said it looked like George Washington...LOL... Now , every time I look at it, all I is see George Washington.

Yeah the head was my least favorite part of it, It definitely worked but I just kept seeing loki with white hair... But George Washington would be worse.. unless you planned a comic - George Washington: King of England ;p

 

I'd be curious to see what he looked like with his Secret Wars head.

Yeah, I have to go dig that one up I suppose. I found everything but the head so... got to go hunting.

What about the Eric head you have on OPP, and the helmet you had?

I picked up the green suited white gloved Red Skull the other day, and had been thinking about making Von Strucker for a while. So I grabbed the first Red Skull I picked up, and got to work.

 

I dug through my fodder box, and found an old Destro (the one w/ the cape on one shoulder, and spikes on the other), and then I kept looking until I found the spare DCUIH Lex Luthor head I had in there. I swapped out the right lower arm of the Destro w/ the Red Skull right lower arm, and then I switched out the left hands, and head. Then I cut a small piece of figure bubble plastic for his monacle (had to trace it so that it'd show up), and painted.

Thanks, I'm happy with how he's turned out so far. Hoping my touch-ups won't be too bad and I can find a gunbelt, so I can throw him up with my avengers.

That is fantastic!!! That makes me want to actualy buy that Magneto now! How do you attach the XMO:W Iceman hands though, since they're attached the the forearm directly? I'm assuming this is a more involved process than a simple kitbash - any tips? THANKS!

Dani seems like you could use an x-23 head if her mask isn't sculpted on.

I've seen a good custom of sunspot that used the johnny storm body.

Magma seems like you could just get a phoenix.

Or you could use Firestar and swap the head.

I don't suppose you have an extra LL head. I've been wanting to stick that head on my SDCC Destro so I can have a finished Professor X.
