Well, ol' Cable here started out life as the Punisher. I switched out the arm and body armor with Maverick. The yellow was painted brown, then dry brushed with 2 kinds of yellow. The body is Model Master Acryl Insignia Blue, with cobalt highlights. I used an xacto to actually cut the scars into his face, then let Scab Red drip into the cuts. Then, I painted his face with Tamiya flat flesh, then dry brushed two lighter shades over that. The cyborg eye is painted yellow as well. The X Symbol is hand crafted. The guns are from various GI Joe figures, and painted as well to bring out the highlights. The hair is neutral gray with white drybrushing.

 

He retains all articulation, and all armor is removable.

IM Movie Tony Stark in black, and gray jump suit.

 

I picked up the Duke, Snakeeyes, and 2 Neo Viper pack at Target tonight for $5 and I noticed that Duke's suit resembled Tony's jump suit he wore under the MKIII armor. So I used my sharpies (man I love these things) to dye the pants black, draw his goatee, color his hair, and draw the arc reactor on his chest.

Do you have an XML Colossus arm to try? Might look ridiculous but Cable's arm is usually drawn huge. Your custom looks top notch, though.

XMO Sabretooth with interchangeable heads:

 

As you all know, Hasbro gave us two versions of Sabretooth. In my opinion, neither looked good enough. So I basically took the things I liked from both and combined them. I hated the white mane on the Blob 2-pack version but liked the head and costume color. I also liked the head on the Wolverine 2-pack version but hated the shiny brown and hair color. So, using the heat and pop technique and my teeth to pry, I switched the manes and repainted the Short haired version to match. So now I have a long and short haired version that I think looks better. Here is the result. If anyone wants to try this and needs to know the color combination I used to match the brown, send me a PM.

It's PERFECT!!!

 

I've been meaning to do the same, but the color match was a problem. Thought about exchanging the tops of the head, but if you know the color combination, then... PERFECT!!!

 

Well done!!!

Nice job! I was wondering if people posted non-Marvel characters made from Marvel figures.

 

You really did a good job of capturing the feel of the character... Where is his romance novel?

thanks, I'm still working on making his little "make out tactics" books, so for now let's just pretend it's still tucked away in one of his pockets.

This is my own little version of ice man. He was pretty simple to make but a must have for me as I didn't like the XMOW version and couldn't find the MU 3 pack version. I took a Silver surfer base and added a Johnny Storm head. I based the whole thing a dark blue and dry brushed layers of ice blue, white, and just a little silver to add a "frosted" look. I did the same thing to the board so he could have a little ice to "ride". The pictures don't quite show off all the layers of color and how they play off of each other, but I'm sure everyone will get the idea. Comments, questions, and critiques are always welcome.

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
