This is Nova Omega, the Xandarian Centurion who was given all the power of the Xandarian Corps, in his modern suit. I used a Batista WWE figure (sorry for exterminating so many wrestling figures, but they fit so well.... :) ) with sanded down veins, enlarged feet, and sculpted and modified all the face. Hope you like him.
Here is Thena, the daughter of Zuras that become the leader of the Eternals after the death of his father. Another nice Kirby creation, which I have updated with using the Steel DC Direct base figure that has a magnific armour and a very good quantity of points of articulation for being a DC Direct. The sword is from LOTR and the hair of Witchblade, with some Saint Seiya parts for the extra armour. I tried a new kind of glossy varnish on her that is amazingly strong and smooth.

Here is my custom of an AT-AT specially camouflaged and modified for warfare against the rebels in Tatooine. Made with a vintage AT AT, repainted with sprays, with GI Joe and MOTU lasers, GI Joe crane, and a metallic net from an old tv.

Here is Jango, a character from the anime Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac. He was an enemy that shortly appeared and was defeated by Ikki. I used a Ichi Hydra figure, sculpted the central armour, belt, leg plates and knee pads, used hair of Jabu Unicorn, and shoulder pads from Shura.
Here is the Time Bot, a robot created by Dr. Doom in order to steal Mjolnir and retake control of Latveria. The robot curiously succeeded, but the robot was in the end destroyed. Anyway, if you have an Iron Man Mk1 you are quite limited, and this was the cooler "classic" robot I could find. Just epoxied the head and torso and a complete repaint.

Here is Intello, a robot created by the Mad Thinker to defeat Spiderman (how original!). With this custom I tried to represent his gold colour with a series of yellow and orange variatons to get a cartoony effect.
Base figure; Batista and skirt of some LOTR figure.
Here is Crypto Man, a character created by the great Stan Lee and Jack Kirby as an enemy of Thor -and later- the Hulk. I thought he fitted quite well with the Cyborg DCUC figure. In the comic he had a strange yellow highlights (even if he was blue), so I decided to paint some yellow parts in the arms and legs.
Base figure Cyborg with Dr. Midnite left hand.
I was quite astonished when I saw, looking for new customs this character, Agent Brand, which I never heard about, that she appeared in 158 issues and was an important character in the Marvel Universe! I checked if somebody had done her before but no at least in the Realm, so I concluded that I had a good use for that Witchblade figure.
Recipe; Witchblade body, Myth Cloth hands, casted weapon, Gambits' legs, Beast belt, Angel glasses.
Get her on eBay!

Here is Pagan, a late 90s enemy of the Avengers which was powerful enough to battle them all at once. A really cool character in design and name, which I decided to bring him into plastic life using;
Hydra Myth Cloth mask
Ann O'Brien hair
Chain from naval modelism
Cutted out ping pong balls for the shoulder pads
He is now on eBay.

Here is a custom of Count Dooku before he fell to the dark side of the Force, as well documented in various comics. Curiously, the only thing Star Wars I used for this custom was the lightsaber and the skirt;
Base figure; Indiana Jones son head, Snake Eyes body, Destro boots, and hands from some random 25th or Indy figure.

Here is Graviton, a character it never took my attention until I saw the first episode of the new Avengers animated series. I like everything of the new rendition; the look, the argument, the personality, and his insane level of power. I adapted it to a Mongul body and used a Gandalf head that I thought I would never be using.
Base figure; Mongul, Gandalf head, a modified Wrestling hand, foam and sculpting here and there.
Now on Ebay.
