  1. Seems like a no brainer for a deluxe release, and they could add some alternate fist for it as well.
  2. I wanted a bigger comic style Abomination I was never happy with the size of the comic Abomination BAF. So I decided to use my extra Gamerverse Abomination BAF as the base for a better comic style version. I bought a casting of the comic Abomination BAF head and fitted it to the Gamerverse body, and then painted up both the head and body. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. And now I have a bigger and badder looking Abomination.
  3. Thanks πŸ™‚ I thought about going the Gundam marker route as well, I even bought the marker. But I just wasn't feeling it, so I decided to go with washes instead. I'm glad that I did it does have a more natural feel to it. I ended up putting a couple of coats extra with a fine tip brush into the quilted line areas after the first wash for a darker tone, but if you prefer a lighter color you don't have to put that many on it.
  4. After getting the retro carded Shocker I wasn't happy with the paint or lack thereof. The pale mustard yellow wasn't to my liking either. For a solution I applied a Testors mahogany wash to the yellow areas which I used to fill in the quilted lines, and it had the added benefit of tinting the yellow to a more pleasing color. I also applied a black wash to the brown areas of the costume, and I touched up the brown areas that had missing paint.
  5. I just finished up my latest custom of the character Sludge from the Ultraverse. Sludge is one of my favorite characters from the Ultraverse. The base figure is a Marvel Legends Deluxe Toxin with some Hulk hands and feet. I sculpted all of the dripping slime on the the body with epoxy, and sculpted the head for Sludge. The sculpting was a ton of work on this one especially having to do in stages. The paint job was actually pretty fun with all the washes and dry brushing. Overall I'm really happy with how this one turned out.
  6. I only have five there was a limit of only five, and that is what I bought. Each Skrull comes with two heads, so I bought ML Paladin figures to double the amount of Skrulls. πŸ˜‰
  7. The head started out a an enlarged casting of the toybiz Smart Hulk head from Glassman Customs that I got years ago. I ended up resculpting the hair and the back of the head.
  8. Thank you very much. I was definitely going for the look of Gary Franks artwork.
  9. I started with the knock off 80th Anniversary Hulk, and used the KO Juggernaut belt, waist, upper legs, and knees. The head is a slightly resculpted enlarged casting of the toybiz Smart Hulk head. I modified the diaphragm ball joint socket to make the torso a little taller and add some clearance to the joint. Then a full paint job.
  10. Thanks πŸ˜ƒ With his exaggerated proportions I can see what you mean with the manga feel to it.
  11. This is my newest Ultraverse Prime custom. I gave the first one to a friend as a birthday present, so I had to make a replacement for my collection. πŸ™‚ The base body is the Caliban BAF which is the best base for Prime IMO. The neutral head is an enlarged Hyperion casting. For the smiling head I spliced the Hyperion casting with and All Might head casting, and the angry face I spliced it with a Toybiz Omega Red head casting. The hands are from 1/6th scale Deadpool. The feet are from a Marvel Legends Warpath. To make the smaller feet look right I had to Dremel down and re-sculpt the lower legs. I used styrene and epoxy to sculpt the boots and chest armor. I also sculpted over all of the pins for a seamless look. For the gauntlets I made molds from my first custom Prime. I ordered the cape off of eBay it was listed to be for the Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Shao Kahn. I attached the cape by I embedding magnets into the shoulders, and gluing some magnets to the cape. This way the cape can be removable. For the Prime logo on the cape I recreated the logo in illustrator, and I sent the cape to a friend that does vinyl signs, graphics, and shirts. He was able to cut and press it onto the cape.
  12. I decided to redo all of my previous Ultraverse customs after making my Ultraverse Prime custom. First up to get the 2.0 treatment is Atom Bob. Recipe: Marvel Legends Spider-Man UK base body; Bullseye biceps, knees, and upper part of the lower legs; Moon Knight forearms, boots, and feet; White suit Ironfist hands; ML Havok and DCUC Superman red heads. The power effect pieces are from Can of Beams.
  13. This is my second custom of favorite Ultraverse character Prime, but this time in his final form. The base body is the Caliban BAF. The head is a Hyperion casting that I got glassman customs to enlarge good while back. I did have to re-sculpt the back of the head/hair a little, and fit it to the body using my Dremel and o-rings. I also added some epoxy behind the ears until it was enlarged I never noticed how thin the Hyperion ears were. The hands are from 1/6th scale Deadpool that I bought off eBay which worked out great, but I did have to thicken the peg with superglue and baking soda. The feet are from a Marvel Select Colossus. To make the smaller feet look right I had to Dremel down the lower legs. I used styrene and epoxy to sculpt the armor, gauntlets, and boots. I used Caliban's wristbands as a base for the gauntlets, so they are still removable. I ordered the cape off of eBay it was listed to be for the Storm Mortal Kombat Shao Kahn. I attached the cape by I embedding magnets into the shoulders, and gluing some magnets to the cape. This way the cape can be removable. For the tattoo and arm hair created the graphics in photoshop and printed them on clear backed waterslide paper. To get the waterslide decals to conform to the arm used micro set and micro sol. I really took my time with this second Prime. It's Prime Time!
  14. Here is a custom of my favorite Ultraverse character Prime. This is a custom that I have wanted to make for a longtime, but I could never find the right base body to start with until the Caliban BAF was released. The head is a Hyperion casting that I got glassman customs to enlarge, but I did have to resculpt the back of the head/hair a little and fit it to the body using o-rings. I also added some epoxy behind the ears until it was enlarged I never noticed how thin the Hyperion ears were. The hands are from 1/6th scale Deadpool that I bought off ebay which worked out great, but I did have to thicken the peg with superglue and baking soda. The feet are from a Marvel Select Colossus. To make the smaller feet look right I had to dremel down the lower legs. I used styrene and epoxy to sculpt the armor, gauntlets, and boots. I used Caliban's wristbands as a base for the gauntlets, so they are still removable. I ordered the cape from gpslot on ebay. I attached the cape by I embedding magnets into the shoulders, and glueing some magnets to the cape. This way the cape can be removable. Overall I am really happy with how it has turned out. It's Prime Time!
  15. Next is a bunch of movie-verse heads that he bought from Glassman Customs. I'll take some individual pictures of each of the characters a little later. http://home.comcast.net/~sjrife/sjrife/customs/Tony-Stark-Head-01.jpg http://home.comcast.net/~sjrife/sjrife/customs/Agent-Coulson-V2-01.jpg
  16. Hey everyone I just finished painting up a bunch of heads for "The Amazing Spidey-Fan" over on the Fwoosh forums. First up is a Iceman head cast from Casting Cave that I painted up as an alternate unmasked Peter Parker head for the new Spider-Man figure.
