  1. Whew! That was alot of painting! I used various enamels/acrylics, keeping it simple for that cartoony look. Norman has a newly sculpted hat, and Mysdeerio is sporting some pretty jewels. Hope ya had fun looking!
  2. Well, it's good to see you! This may not be MU, but I thought you'd enjoy... After a couple of years of accumulating Littlest Pet Shop toys, my darling daughter Emma had some duplicates. So, one rainy day I got the inspiration for some Littlest Super Heroics!
  3. Its a great custom but there is no way in hell its going to be two years or even a year before a figure comes out of this...bleeding edge came out less than a year as did Iron patriot lol. haha two years. Ok...fair point. Thats a bit exaggerated. You make a great point with Bleeding Edge. I was born in '75, so I was a child of the 80s, was there for all the biggies including the inception of the industry-changing Toy Biz era....I guess I'm still in the mindframe that it takes so long for a figure to catch up with it's comic counterpart. Another example would be Bucky Cap, that fig came out pretty fast as well. I guess I was also thinking that since this seems to be a costume for just a couple of issues and not a major change to the character that it may take awhile. Apparently "Big Time" will feature several costumes he designs at Horizon Labs so who knows which will get made. Annnnyway thanks, glad you like him! Fair warning for anyone thinking about trying this custom....it is NOT FUN. I actually hated it halfway through. It was such a chore to get those lines symmetrical and even. Masking tape is useless at that scale so it was a constant back and forth with the green and black to get it to look even. HATED IT = NOT FUN :hulk:
  4. Yes indeed, it is in fact the Sentry 2-pack Spidey, I liked the fact that he had the sculpted eyes but not the sculpted webs. Also, fair warning to those who try this one..... IT IS NOT A FUN CUSTOM. Seriously, about halfway through I hated doing this one. I thought "oh, it won't be bad, some green lines..." Hell. Trying to get those lines so even, straight and symmetrical on such a tiny figure was a nightmare. Constant back and forth with the green/black because at 3.75" masking tape is pretty useless. But, that said, thanks everyone! It'll be a year or two before Marvel rolls this fig out so I thought I'd be timely!
  5. Hi there! Happy 2011 to ya. Thanks for stopping in. I am really enjoying the current Spider Man issues, since the "Big Time" story arc. I mean, REALLY liking them, the most I've liked Spidey comics in a looong time! It feels like they are truly advancing the character in alot of ways and they have actually made me look forward to another issue! Really fun so far. This coming from someone who detests the ideas behind BND. Annnnyway, you'll have to forgive me. I'm happy to be able to enjoy Spidey again in Amazing. So, to celebrate, here's a custom of his first Horizon Labs suit, in the 3.75" scale. It bends both light and sound, and requires lenses to see it. It debuted in #650. continued...
  6. Hi there! It was simply a matter of time before I got around to this obligatory custom: Just a repaint of Archangel, with some clear red blood splatter on the wings. Thanks for your time!
  7. Well, it looks like Second Coming has wrapped up, and what an adventure it has been, especially if you followed all of Cable and Hope's adventures in time as I did. I thought I'd offer up a pair of figures commemorating the event! I have made several Cables to date, but this one focuses a bit more on the recent look rather than the big shoulder pad 90s look. Here we have both Hope and Cable in the 3.75" Marvel Universe scale: Thanks for your time!
  8. Let's see...she began life as Storm. I sculpted her jacket sleeves. The head was from RoC Scarlett, the hair from a DCU figure, but slightly resculpted in spots. The bandana tail was from Capt. Boomerang. The knee pads were also sculpted, and the X Symbol is a metal button painted. The green is Dark green pearl over silver, the yellow was insignia yellow. Two browns were used for the coat. A coat of pledge future was used to give that ultra shine and to really protect any joints. Thanks for your time!
  9. What a GREAT Dr Nemesis and Scarlet Spider! *applause So, I finished up on a few projects this week, one of which is a much-wanted character for the new 3.75" line, Rogue, in her Jim Lee era '90s uniform >>>>> cont...
  10. Yep, that Predator is a cut above. Definitely a great example of what toy customizing can truly be.
  11. They were made using various parts, including RoC Duke's body for Cyclops and Wolverine, Baroness for the ladies. Cyclops' head was also Duke's, but I sculpted the visor and hair using Apoxy Sculpt. His lower legs were from Cobra Commander, with the shoes sculpted over. Wolverine's head was from a Logan figure from the recent movie, and his forearms were Storm Shadows. His lower legs were from the same Logan figure. The wolf is from a Snake Eyes figure. Storm's head was from her two pack version, with hair from Scarlett. Her lightning was from Electro. Jean features the least work, being a Baroness head as well, but I removed her glasses and remolded the hair a little, and she also she gets the firey headpiece to simulate Phoenix powers. The X Logos on the chests were hand sculpted. The belt buckles are metal and painted. Lots o' parts, and lots o' work, but I wanted all four together for the group. This set is available for a couple of days to board members before I put it up for auction, so if it's something you are interested in, just PM for a quote. Thanks for your time!
  12. *waves Hey there! Come on in. Just thought I'd share my latest finished project, 4 of the X Men in the 3.75" Marvel Universe scale. cont...
  13. Well, ol' Doc Ock here started out life as a ROC Cobra Commander. He received a new head, and the Ock arms came from a Spidey figure. The legs are from City Strike Snake Eyes. Painted with a base gray, then Snot Green. The coat was painted white, then given some dirty highlights to resemble a dirty lab coat. I hand mixed the orange in two shades, the base and the highlights. Buckles were light brown, and all silver was painted black then drybrushed. All paints were Testor's Model Master Acryl or Games Workshop. I used Pledge Future to seal and protect any joints, all of which were tested and sanded for wear. Thanks for your time!
  14. Hi there! Good to see ya. Well, I've been trucking along with some commissions, and managed to get in a fun project...3.75" Doc Ock: continued...
  15. Here's a quick shot of an Iron Patriot Armory, a 5-figure set request from a good client and new friend.... Crazy Normie plays dress up: Started with a total base coat of silver, then used clear red and blue, followed by clear smoke to enhance some line detail. The stars came from the wal mart craft dept. Thanks for your time!
  16. Thanks everyone! Thanks! The head is from Star Wars, Grand Admiral Thrawn. I used two different dremel bits to scar it up, applied a solid coat of Scar Red, then drybrushed some flat flesh. My tiniest brush finished off the eyes and I was done.
  17. Any comments, critiques, love or hate are encouraged!
  18. I've been dying to drop with this project, but there were so...many...details! (Hope you like Deadpool) continued...
  19. Continued from previous page.... Mr Wayne was constructed using 4 different figures. The base body and head belong to Guardian. The ears are sculpted. The glove spikes and plastic cape came from DCIC Batman. The boots, gloves, lower arms and legs belonged to Captain America, with the pouches and laces sanded down. The belt also belonged to Cap. The cloth part of the cape came from some random Batman figure from long ago.
  20. Hi there! I had just the right parts for a custom I've been meaning to get around to, 3.75" Batman: cont
  21. En Sabah Nur is really coming along well No kidding! That sculpting looks really amazing! I can't wait to see it finished.
  22. Actually, I was basing it off of some comic art from when I had a big X Men phase around the time of the big re-launch with #1. Here's some examples of what I'm talking about when I say that the costume could either be shiney, or it could just be the inking.
