LOL - that's a bit much on the effects, but I love that uni-beam effect. Did you do it yourself?

 

No, thats from Megaman X (fits perfectly there, just clic! didn't have to glue or anything.)

Can someone help me out with the colors of some characters? I need to know what are all of the colors of Gambit and Magneto costumes. What's the color of Magneto's cape, the color of Gambit's torso? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

 

Trying to Make a custom of Mag's with a future foundation Spider-Man buck but I will be using the comic pack Head, lower legs and arms. I don't want to repaint all of these parts so was wondering if and what paint would match the best?

 

Same with Gambit. I'm using same buck but don't really know what color his torso is! I'm color blind. :smile:

I would describe Magneto's uniform as crimson. The 2-pack Daredevil is the right color - you could use that whole body (the "DD" comes off easity with acetone). The Magneto in the 2-pack is a little redder than crimson on the Daredevil I mentioned. To match that I would suggest to mix crimson and red in equal parts.

Gambit is more of a magenta. His figure is metallic magenta. Maybe mix non-metallic magenta in equal parts with this?

Hello guys, I don't know if this topic had already been tackled. After a year or so, it still bothers me that the left leg of the figure that uses the JL Cyke mold is a little longer than the right. Have you all notice that? Is there any fix to that? Like heating and freezing because I'm not a customizer, (I don't how to mold or cast an epoxy if ever I cut or sand em off).

Probably the best thing to do is leave it alone. But if its keeping you up at night, boil and pop the left shin joint out. On the piece with the peg hole in it, you need to do 2 simple things. Smoothe 1/8" off the flat horizontal surface. And deepen the peg hole in that leg surface by the same amount. Then pop the 2 lower leg pieces back together. Voila.

Recipe

-Mysterio body.

-Phasing Visions Head,cape and left hand.

Very nice. If we don't get a "re-Vision" along the lines of this recipe (or fresher) out of the new (MU) Avengers line within the first year, there will be riots.

This is not so much a custom, but more of a repaint. I found this awesomely sculpted Grizzly bear in a second hand store and thought it would make a great stand in for Ursa Major. I have no idea where this bear is from. It is not the same bear that comes with the Chap Mei Grizzly rescue set. It has slightly less articulation than the Chap Mei bear but the sculpt is much nicer.

I have no words how jealous I am of that bear, Fritzkreig. I've been dying to get something just like that for my own Winter Guard.

Fritzkreig, aside from the bear, I just noticed your outstanding useage of multiple Fortress Assault Captains America as Red Army troops. Combined with Russian soldiers from Indiana Jones, this is now officially my favorite picture ever.

 

Two last questions...

 

1) What is that vehicle the Russians are riding on?

 

2) That snow looks really good. Did you set this up outside?

Nice!!! FYI the bear is from Wild Quest 2 Seaplane Rescue Playset! I think it makes a pretty good Ursa.

I don't think it is the same Bear. The Wild Quest bear was rerelease by Chap Mei in the Animal Planet Grizzly Resque set. I've seen that bear up close, it has an action feater and the sculpt is not as realistic. This Bear has a more realistic sculpt and has no action feature.

Regardless, the bear looks cool, but after some research and looking at some of his Hulk and Captain America appearances I have, Ursa Major is 6'2" in human form and 7'5" in bear form. That would make the figure 30%+ too large in 1:18 scale. Depending on which artist is drawing him at any time though, size does change.

 

Also, you need an Abomination in your display!! He's all Russian. That is a damn sweet diorama.

Is there a way to safely remove the middle torso from a figure without damaging it? Could I boil and pop this as I would the legs and arms? I know that with the modern Joes the torsos can be cracked and separated, but I don't think this is the case with the MU figs,

Thanks
