Phalanx Manga style Marvel Legends X-Men custom

I return to the customizing world with this rather unusual custom, a new style of Phalanx with japanese styling, Anime/Manga sort of. It is a mixture of a bootleg Digimon figure, + legs of the 200x MOTU flying eagle vehicle, hair of Blackheart, and the rest is sculpting.

Hagen of Merak Beta Repaint improve Myth Cloth custom Saint Seiya ベータ星メラクのハーゲン EX


When I had in hand the Myth Cloth Hagen Merak figure, I saw it wasn't what I was expecting. Normally the Myth are either flawless or very good, except the first figures they made. But this figure, although it was made after many great figures, had some important defects, defects that weren't permissible in a figure that has this value and with the quality of this line.

So, with some tweaks I tried to lift it up to standard.

This is how it was;




AND HERE WITH THE MODIFICATIONS;









I repainted his face, giving him the correct tone of flesh, before it was too pale. I repainted the eyes, and I repainted the armour to make it red instead of pink. And I repainted the eyes of the mask. And I took the small wings of the feet and glued them directly to the leg protection to prevent the tube effect of the original figure that spoils it.

Abel アベル Apolo Saint Seiya Custom by Argenta 2008 customs







This is a old custom I didnt post before due to lack of time. Here is Abel, the main villain in one of Saint Seiya Knights of the Zodiac OVAS. He more or less should be Apolo, but due to the author not authorizing Toei to use the character, they invented a different god, with very similar powers and name. 

In the OVA, he doesn't wear armour, but I've followed a fanart to make him more interesting. 

Recipe;

Gemini body
Geki hair
Shun Hades shoulder pads

Melf Peralay Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Masters of the Universe Classics MOTUC custom figure










Here is Melf (Peralay was his original name, it was changed for the toy) in MOTUC Style. Made over a Demo Man MOTUC (the only MOTUC I know without high boots). Although he was a skinny character, there isn't a skinny MOTUC yet, so let's say he has done a bit of weight-lifting. 

Head - Deluxe Aggression
Body - Demo Man
Deadman cowl
Dr Midnite cloak
LOTR bow, arrow and arrow-case
Batman pre DCUC shield modified

Elkhorn Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Masters of the Universe Classics MOTUC custom figure











Here is Elkhorn, another of my line of customs based on the vintage line of Dungeons and Dragons in MOTUC Style. This time, although he is a dwarf, the friend for I made it wanted specifically a MOTUC, so he has grown up to be a proud viking :) . 

Mer-Man two pack body
Deluxe Aggression head
Demo Man hands
Myth Cloth stand for shield modified
Ares sword




Saturn Knight Flashback Universe Marvel Legends DC Classics Nova custom











Here is Saturn Knight, a character neither Marvel, nor DC, and no, Image neither :) . It is from the Flashback Universe, I recently discovered surfing through the net. They have all the comics in cbr format only, you can learn more about them here; http://www.flashbackuniverse.com/

The stories are quite good, and more especially, their designs are top notch. I couldn't resist transforming one of them into an action figure. Saturn Knight is the sort of Nova of their universe. Made over a DCUC samurai with Hal Jordan head.

Athena Marvel Custom Myth Cloth Legends Universe figure












Here is Athena, greek goddes of Wisdom and Justice. This custom was made in a moment of inspiration, as the body was perfect, and I had all the right parts. The only sculpted thing was the skirt and some very minor details.

This is the Marvel version of Athena, although it could pass by a lot of Athena's of other universes. It also looks like a DC Themyscira amazon, or a Myth Cloth Mythologic era Athena.

Recipe;

Omac hair
Shion helmet
Dohko spear
Cygnus and Camus stands for shield
Dr Midnite cloak
