  1. Very Nice!!! Not a character I would have thought to make.
  2. Not sure if these really count, but I repainted and re-caped a Keaton Batman into the version "I" like. Nightwing is Cloak's body, combined with an ultimate Storm Shadow's head. Also had to change his hand to another Joe's so that he could hold the stick. As I have a better Nightwing... Injustice Nightwing is in the process of becoming Robin. Haven't decided yet if I'll go Tim Drake or Young Justice Grayson... probably Drake ;)
  3. Gotten behind in posting myself. Here's a few fun ones I've been working on? Darkhawk got a little sanding and painting, nothing too crazy there. Still, while I love the idea that they MADE a Darkhawk at all... THIS is the version I know and love. And a good old fashioned Johnny Blaze. Ghost Rider body, Nick Fury coat. Can't remember where the gun came from... one of the random GI JOes I think. The head and bike were from the 90's Ghost Rider line, these came from the Blaze 'stunt rider' ones.
  4. Very cool! I wish they went with something like this for the movie. I really the hate the 'not a costume' philosophy so many comic movies go with.
  5. I've had amazing luck with the acetone nail polish remover. I tried a couple things that just I worked and worked and got no results... I tried that stuff and a simple swipe smeared it right off. blew my mind. Too much can have negative results with the plastic, but in moderation I haven't seen anything that compared.
  6. Love the idea. I actually have all my armors lined up just like that right now :) However... my current display is about 18-22 armors strong and that's just cost prohibitive ;)
  7. Here's a couple of long works in progress finally finished :) Thunderstrike Recipe, Classic Thor body, Thor 2: DW head (sleevless version) Nick Fury coat (had to boil and pop a bicep to get it on... but seems to work once its there.) Carved up mjolnir that didn't turn out as good in my head as I'd hoped... but still better than I had ;) cut the hair a bit to accentuate the ponytail... but doesn't show well on the picture... GOT to get a better camera one of these days.... and a functional Doc Ock :D Pretty easy here. Doc ock with stupid backpack arms... and secret wars arms. dremel. glue. SUCCESS!!! A doc who's arms will ACTUALLY reach farther then his NORMAL arms... O.o
  8. Yep! Protector's the one I was thinking of. Never heard of him before, and what they did with the package was no way to drum up interest :-/ Personally I prefer SOME kind of bio or interesting tidbit of knowledge about who I'm buying... I think the first time I heard Daredevil was blind was way back on the original Secret Wars figure. Loved him ever since! Legends kind of got into the rut of "Buy this... because your looking for leg piece #3 to go with the other 5 pieces you have... so who cares who this character is... " and less about the individual characters in their own right :-/ Oh, I agree with what your saying. I'll go a step farther... I think it's a stupid name... since few people even REMEMBER it. It was a failed comic 13 years ago. Vol one went 15 issues and then petered out... vol 2 lasted 6 issues. Worst of all, While I had them all because I was a HUGE Daredevil fanatic at the time... Even I barely remember it. I know the idea was 'catch the punisher'.... DD and Black widow started it... moonknight joined in and financed it... Shangchi was around... and MK paid Luke Cage to be some muscle... mostly because it brought back the yellow collar shirt Iook I loved so much for him... But cloak and dagger?? I vaguely remember dagger in some background shots... but really, don't remember much else about her in it. The book wasn't about them, and they didn't do a whole lot in it... Dragging up a 13 year old name of a failed comic concept just to name these two is a WEIRD decision... O.o
  9. Didn't they though? we already HAVE Punisher, daredevil, moon knight, black widow and Power Man... Multiple costumes of each too.... Shang chi's the only one missing. Which is better than MOST teams out there :P We also had an X-men pack with only wolvie, rogue, and longshot of all people... /shrug As a rule, I like to see the actual NAMES of the people on the box... but at least they tell us something about the characters this time. There was a dude in all white in a recent marvel Legends line that I STILL have no idea who or what he was supposed to be...
  10. Don't know if this will work but when i'm using testors and mess up I throw the piece into some lighter fluid and it comes off pretty good. Just wash it off with water afterwards lol Hmmm... Thanks for the suggestion. Have to see what I can find... This isn't so much a custom... as it is a metal miniature, but I use pretty much the same process. At the end, I usually hit it with a coat or two of shiny clear gloss for a nice hard shell... then hit with some matte clear to knock the shine down. The matte clear went on like crap... I'm REALLY hoping I can find a way to just lose the first layer or two before ruining the paint on this guy... Feels like I've been working on him forever... and frankly I'm a little bored with him. BUt he's for a friend, so it's gotta get done. The idea of starting from scratch just nauseates me a bit... I've had the clear coat wear off after time and use.... but I've neverreally TRIED to take it off... I'm wondering if thinner or acetone would even work on that stuff O.o I put it on there to NOT come off >.< Sounds a BIT encouraging on that part though! :)
  11. SOooooooo.... I had an 'incident' yesterday applying some spray matte clear on a custom. I'm not sure if I didn't shake it well enough or WHAT. but the figure ended up with a white frosting kind of 'slimed' look. Basically looks like crap, and now I need it off. Anyone know a good way to get that stuff OFF a figure? soap? Acetone? REALLY don't wnat to start from scratch on this thing... but gotta do SOMEthing....
  12. Whoa..... Gotta say, NOT a fan of 'agent Venom'.... but even I'll admit THAT's awesome!!!! :)
  13. Love it! He's on my list too... I mean, we are SOOOOo close to a perfect cast of Secret Wars... Sooooo close.....
  14. MISTER FANTASTIC!!!!! Anyone ever done anything with him to make him look cool? I keep looking at him, and hes'... BORING. just 'a dude' standing there... I open up any random book and just standing around he's still stretched in out flat or longer arms or oversized hands or something... Anyone seen some good mods or customs or Molded parts that will help spice him up a bit? Maybe like Sizemore's sandman up above? I'd love a Mr.Fantastic that's ready for an 'action shot'.
