Thanks guys! I'm working on getting a better picture when I hit my local comic book shop this weekend. I having a hard time finding good shots of Cypher & Cannonball in that current x uniform. Dani & Magma are my next project I first want to try my luck with Cypher, Cannoball, Sunspot, & X-Man. Rod I love your recipe on X man he will be my first objective hopefully to start this weekend. Can you guys give me ideas for the face of Cyoher & Cannonball? Thanks again for all the feedback & help.

 

I used a Duke head and sculpted hair for Cypher. I don't really like it but I think it works well enough if ya can't find anything better.

Cypher's in his early 20s.. that head looks way too old. I'd look at some of the softer Luke Skywalker likenesses.

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!

 

Also, now I seem to remember that somebody was casting / selling wrist-pegged versions of the XMO:W Iceman hands - Did that actually happen? If it did, who was making those? Now I think I need to get, like, a half dozen, because they are fantastic. :-)

Yeah i agree actually. reminded more of what you'd see for banshee.

 

I don't think the skywalkers would look good tho, I don't think I'd be able to unsee luke.

 

The Steve Rogers head might work like Rodimus mentioned.

Though he did look more adult like in Necrosha. Maybe if I did the hair abit different mine would have looked better.

Yeah a strict movie likeness Luke wouldn't work.. I think this figure might. It looks kind of like Luke but not totally.

-Lt. Jundland

I have ever seen this guy in stores is it hard to find?

 

Thanks guys I need the help and this is the best feedback I have been able to get from anyone.

No problem BigBoyb, feedback is always good.

 

I'm not really feeling that Luke head but at least it doesn't look like Mark Hammil :)

you have a few options now at any rate.

I think the Luke with the 'tech suit" would be the best bet. minimal customizing...but there are lots of faces to choose from.

the one armed man is actually a jedi custom that i made of myself 10+ years ago. whats left anyway(added vader legs a couple years ago...) lol

 

*edit: where the hell are my pics?

...Yeah...the 'blue armor guy' was supposed to be me. guess i'll destroy it now?

the nose was made by 'building up' small blobs of paint. i had a small upturned nose at the time i made the face.

 

anyway. @diabolical, the luke you are looking for comes in a 2 pack with a female with the same suit.

hahaha ooops! Just swap it out with a thor head and you'll be good.

 

I just saw that luke after spending all day looking at the rebel scum database. I've never really paid much attention to the star wars line, they actually have some really great figures.

lol, naw. Just cuz you made it look more like MJ than yourself? It's still a better custom than I could do. It would look more like Freddy Kruger if I had done it.lol I still say it might work for a future OPP contest. Superheroes as "real life" celebrities or something.... (or some horrendous "casting call" for a superhero movie, ie "what if MJ played 'black' panther?"lmfao!)

 

but seriously, don't take it too personally. It's still a pretty good custom job. Pics from a more level or even slightly top down wouldn't look as much like MJ probably.
