Jean Grey X-Men:Red (Marvel Legends) Custom Action Figure

Here is Jean Grey in his modern X-Men red suit. A cool upgrade of the character, one of the few important characters that have been bold enough to change colour and suit. It varies awfully from one issue to another, so it was quite difficult to stick with one depiction. Used a Marvel Legends woman, I think another kind of Jean Grey, head and hair from fodder parts. This is my 599th custom, get ready for my 600th one!

Sunspot Marvel Legends custom figure

Here it is Sunspot, a custom I made in late december for a fellow collector. I was asked for a Sunspot, and the client chose the kind of painting along with the uniform. I happened to have a very good base figure to start with (an apparently failed custom of Ghost Rider I bought headless) and a head of a Human Torch riding a bike, which although the figure was just for little kids and had no value whatsoever, the head was very well done, and suited the character perfectly. After careful sanding, sculpting of the extra parts, and removable flames, here it is, Sunspot.



Batgirloid DC Direct Custom Figure

This is my first custom of 2019. Sort of a kitbash, really. I got this Batgirl without leg nor hair, and it struc me I could make a cool cyborg version of her.

History; After being gravely injured, Batman activates his "android" plan to save Batgirl. Having learned from the process that transformed Vic into Cyborg from the Justice League, so is born Batgirloid, half machine, half avenging superhero!

Hope you like it. I used a Jade leg, and she features a removable extra robotic hair. God knows where the batarang came, it was just there at the right moment.

The name is not very definitive, I was doubting between IABat, Robobatress, and many more.

Filmation Two Bad (Masters of the Universe) custom figure


This is Two Bad Filmation style. I always thought it was very weird how he had his arms in the original figure. I cut out the arms, put them in normal "human" way, sculpted the armour a bit more, and repainted completely the whole thing. I am sure the original figure would have been much more popular if made like this!





Cable Classic Marvel Legends X-Force custom figure


2018 have been a very busy year for me, and I still have tons of customs to show! this is a Classic Cable, as in his many 90s appearances (curiously, my first one). The regular figures seem to never fulfill the character. He-Ro's head, LOTR cloak, random fodder weapon, sculpted poaches, random gear and hair and voilà, hardcore rugged classic Cable ready for action.

Corsair v2 Starjammers Marvel Legends custom figure

This is a special custom for me, I did this for the Secret Santa event at the Fwoosh. I had a list full of classic characters, and Corsair was a natural choice considering the parts I had.

I did him in a rather X-Men cartoon style, as I am fan of the series.

I used a Red Guardian, which minimized a lot the paint rub, and gave him some fodder weapons.
