  1. I clicked on the link on the Marvelous News facebook page and thought: " Sweet, Hasbro finally did a good job on wonderman!" Then I realized it was done on a wrestler body and thought: "They're incorporating bodies from other lines now too?" Then I realized it was a custom...

    LMAO. Great Job!

    The plastic bag idea is awesome. I like it! I am often looking for appropriately colored pilates bands to eventually turn into capes and such. Awesome idea with the bag. i'm sure it doesn't hamper arm movement and posability the way a thicker substance would? I wonder how baloon material would compare?

  3. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

     

    This is the first run of my up coming "Fur Ball KIT"

     

    001-191.jpg

     

    I'm not quite ready to put this out yet due to problems I had w/ the torso. If the next run is perfect first try (since I think I fixed the problem I had w/ the mold) then I'll put it in the store the next day.

     

    Look for this around Jan 7th at the latest.

    I like your kit ideas!

     

    Thanks, I already have ideas, and requests for a couple of modifications/ upgrade kits. Oh, and if I remember right you're the one who asked for these:

    I'll add them this evening.

    AWESOME!!

  5. since i busted up a hulk for strong guy's arms I used hulks legs and head on a grey hulk I had, because I hated the original head and legs. 8251976144_2eda3d0556.jpg

    Love it. Perfect proportions.

    If those arms were 'standard' mu articulation(Bicep swivel), I would copy this exactly. well done.

  6. yeah I agree it's the right choice. The only thing I don't like about it is it makes the waist look even smaller but I don't think I can do anything about it without fusing the waist. I'm also going to keep an eye out for a jacket in the 6 inch scale that might fit him. I don't think that belt will be accurate either but I'm not about to cover up such a good x-belt

    You could modify the Movie beast Jacket

     

    And you think his waist is too small you could build up his obliques with some green stuff. you wouldn't have to build them up too much, even a milimeter at their peak would change the look.

  7. thanks guys, here's what my choices look like

    Steve Rogers is obviously too scrawny, but was thinking it could look good with bulked up upper thighs. I tried mixing different thighs with the lower legs but nothing matched up.

     

    I felt like the cable legs looked great but almost too proportional, but the more strong guy pictures i see the more I think they would be fine.

     

    Gladiators legs I felt worked ok

     

    Those pant legs look cool too

     

    Edit.

    after doing lots of picture browsing I'm leaning towards cable's legs. Doesn't look like he's drawn so out of proportion as he was in the 90's.

    Definitely go with the Cable/Tigershark? legs. they look perfect from here.

  8. Resculpted the torso and am satisfied with it. It's not perfect (the back and abs were done with a complete lack of enthusiasm) but overall it's pretty gnarly in hand and I'm proud of it. Debating which legs to use: Gladiator vs Steve Rogers and then look to go with. I'm leaning towards a more current look. I may have to edit the head but I think what I've come up with is more modern looking sculpt. At any rate he's going to be collecting dust until i decide to finish him.

    Really liking your approach! :)

     

  9. ...as much as I hate fanservice of this type.. good job on the fleshtone.

    lol. If it was wrong it wouldn't be called "Fan Service" it would be called 'unpopular perversion'.

    And I think we should all fix the mistakes that hasbro is making by not properly portraying how low cut and skimpy these comic book superheroines actually dress. (are drawn)

    and don't get me started on 'unrealistic'. I know plenty of women who show 'it' off when they have 'it'. ...and some who show it off regardless...

    well finally got my hands at Avengers "Scarlet" Widow.. and since I dont care for her.. guess I would finally try to make a better Black Cat than just a baroness with white hair.. and Im pretty happy with the result (the paint isnt great I might need to buy a better one and re-do some parts) but still over all Im pretty happy with it.

     

    got her a bit of smile in her mouth corners. just a bit,, all hand painted.. the brush didnt help but in the end the mask turned out ok..

     

    well thats it!

    beautiful paint job. especially the smile/smirk. good steady hand.

  11. I noticed there is a sudden influx of Scarlet Spider customs. Does this mean you guys known how awsome Kaine is? Hasbro, take note!

    I thought Kaine was the coolest from the get go. I remember a comic where he showed a different way of using the 'stick to things' ability combined with his strength. He opened a giant metal 'box' without any handles by sticking his hand to it and pulling the door open.

     

    @DecepticonMark. Awesome! I love Titania.

  12. added angel to the lineup

    man, they all look great!!!!

     

    thanks. Looking at the pics I'm kinda debating sculpting tunics rather than leave em with the skin tight look but It's also more work *eye twitches* then maybe new hair for jean cause imo it looks like playdo hair. Iceman I like but I wished he was smaller, the putty I used didn't spread well.

    looks good to me. i've seen iceman looking somewhat bulky when he looked like that in the comics.

  13. Finally completed my Outback-era X-men team.

    I really like this. and that psylocke looks great. I'd love to see a bigger pic of just her.

     

    Also how'd ya do the colossus?

    bits and pieces: marvel legends showdown colossus, destroyer, xow colossus.

    I could be wrong...

  14. toothpicks are more expendable. spread with tothpick. just don't still be spreading while its drying. very thin layers of glue...or you may have to sand.

     

    really? you have good luck? I think mine probably wouldn't come out very smooth.

    to be quite honest, i haven't done it in a long time and didn't do it often. i found that trick on jin saotome's site though.

  15. anyone use dullcoat or clearcoat to seal figures? does it better help to prevent scratching?

     

     

    i wish i could customize, all my gear is in another state.

     

    That would make it more difficult to make customs. Lol. I've clearcoated my figures. I've had mix experiences with it honestly (my own fault tbs). Sometimes, I've oversprayed them, and they get sticky. No es bueno! Also, the stuff I've used would make some parts paler (also when over applied). Most of the time, the overspraying would happen because I either (a) stood too close while spraying, or (b) I misjudged how evenly I was spraying. You don't want the stuff getting runny, especially not in the joints. It takes some trial and error.

     

    As for the prevention of scratches... one or two figs with the coat have still scratched from light roughing up. If there's a better method, I'd love to hear it.

     

    What do the rest of you think? What do you use? Any tips?

    Model/maxicure/hobbycraft/superglue -light layer on joints, make sure it is smooth and tapered. be very careful not to put it 'in' the joints. use it sparingly and put it on the figure before you put it back together when possible.

     

    Did you use paintbrush to the glue on or you used something else?
