OT: A couple of Marvel Legends customs (4/1)
« on: January 15, 2006, 11:36 AM »
Wanted to show you guys a couple of ML figures I customized.  I started these because I had a couple extras from the Sentinel wave that I bought just to get the piece of the larger robot.  I couldn't sell the figures off for 3 or 4 bucks either.  So, I made the Colossus out of a Mr. Sinister and the Union Jack out of the 1st Appearance Spidey, and let me just say that there is a healthy custom ML business on eBay!  Hope you like 'em!

Those are both totaly bitchin'! I'm especially fond of your Union Jack figure you made from Spidey. I also like what you did to Mr. Sinister.  :)

Very sweet work!

I'm not much of a Marvel fan anymore, but you've truly captured these characters very well. I especially appreciate this version of Colossus as I always felt that this costume was much more practical (and cool looking) than the older, more traditional costume he usually wears.

Nice job!

I'm not a marvel legends guy, but from a strictly customs point of view, those are amazingly good paint jobs!!   Keep up the good work.

The Colossus is excellent...now I know what to do with the extra Mr. Sinisters I have from my building three Sentinels.

I love the paintjob on the Union Jack, but the spidet pattern kind of mars this one a bit...still, it's a great job and you should be very proud of your work.

Now let's see some Star Wars customs!   :D

You seem to be into these larger scales figures lately, is it the larger scale you like, or the Marvel theme?  If it's the Marvel theme I bet you could make some really cool 3-3/4" customs from the Superhero Showdown line.

I love those SHS figs Chewie. I've made a few customs with them.
Daigo, That is an amazing Hawkeye. Simply stunning!
I like peter too, but moreso casue i like the character, but the hawkeye takes the cake.
Union JAck is almost as stunning.

Great work.

Thanks guys.  I just finished a Captain Britain- this is his 3rd costume, seen in the later Excalibur days.  I made him from a worthless Omega Red :-*

Nice work again Daigo-Bah  :)
I'm not familiar with that character, but the design is cool and he looks just like your reference image.  Are you using the Marvel Dead Deluxe comics for your reference pics?  I always liked those dead deluxe editions... ;)

and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Great Work!

Captian Britain & Union Jack are 2 of my favorites and you did the justice here.

Keep up the Great Work.
