  1. Sometimes people need a little push in the right direction. The irony is, that Bishop is more or less my first custom, which I only did based on the strength of the wip pic of that head Onyx posted. I knew immediately that thing was a slam dunk. So in a way I owe the whole deal to Onyx. Thanks yo!

     

    Now I've had a couple people ask about commissions and even more people tell me about they're own customs they're doing, so I gotta believe that thing would get some play.

     

    I've also been hounding Onyx forever about a Forge head for that "Xavier School" body. I always assumed everyone would get on that as well. Speaking of which, nice job Diabolical.

     

    A 616 Nick Fury to go on the SHIELD agent body, I always assumed would be a slam dunk also.

     

    I say SDCC should be indicative of what would sell. If by July we haven't seen pictures of Bishop, Forge, or Fantomex it'll be a safe bet those head casts would sell. They seem to me to be the among the most popular customs.

     

     

  2. Onyx asked me to re-post this so he could gauge reaction regarding this head. This is his awesome head sculpt so holla if you wanna see this bad boy make a return to his opp store.

    And Dinamite, if you would please, post another pic of your Psylocke custom so Onyx can see the female head sculpt I'm talking about.

  3. Alright Onyx, I have 3 questions for you regarding this head shrink magic...

     

    1. How do you do this head shrink voodoo?

     

    2. Will it damage the original head?

     

    3. How much will it cost?

     

    Assuming that the answers to those questions are good I'm in. I do think though, that we should conduct some sort of poll to determine what heads would be most desirable. Of course I want the Forge, but if no one else wants one, it doesn't make sense for you to do it. Economically speaking. However, if everyone can get behind it...

  4. The Forge head is a stand in until someone casts a good one. It isn't too bad though for a gutted 90's Toybiz Forge 5''...

     

    Your Toybiz figures are not dead ladies and gentlemen!

     

    Onyx, c'mon bro! If you do a head without the moustache, which can be painted on, we can use the same head for all our sweet Fabian Cortez customs!

  5. Boil water, then use the boiling water to take the figure apart as much as you can.

    Put all your figure pieces into cheese cloth or something so you don't lose anything and add the dye to the boiling water.

    Put the figure in and let it do it's thing.

    After about 30 minutes take it out and check your progress. This is a good opportunity to rotate shoulder joints and such that you didn't take apart so you get 100% coverage.

    Put him back in and in another 30 minutes or so, you should be good.

     

    It's pretty much a trial and error deal, some plastics take longer than others and some colors won't work at all. As long as you're going darker though, it shouldn't be a problem.

     

    I know from experience the Archangel works perfectly. The whole figure black except the pink painted parts and the head which I didn't dye. Then, just go in and paint the pink parts, which turn into a dark magenta, and you're tits.

  6. Custom Commission Request:

     

    I have a loose MU Archangel that I want to give the X-Force treatment to. If any of you talented fellows is interested, please PM me with a quote for your artwork.

     

    Reasonable quotes will be highly appreciated.

     

     

    You should just do it yourself. You aren't going to come across many easier customs. I dyed mine with rit dye. whole figure turned black except the painted parts. So not only do you not have to worry about paint rub, but you have a dark magenta guide for your silver areas.
