Well, its time for an update of a different sort. These are off topic and may be a no no on this board but I felt the need to share them anyway. Ive decided to take a small detour in my customs. Due to very horrible weather, I have been stuck in the house. First it was snow, then it warmed up a little and became miserably cold rain. Needless to say taking my Travelling Obi-Wan pictures have been out of the question, so I started working on a few JLU animated style customs.
First off is Hal Jordan Green Lantern.
This is a figure that should have been done already, but since he seems to always get the snub on the T.V. show its not likely that it will ever happen.
He is made from a John Stewart body with a modified Nightwing head. I decided to go with the outfit that he is currently wearing in the Comic series, which I think is a nice update for a classic look.
Next up is Captain Marvel.
Many people often refer to The Big Red Cheese as SHAZAM. This is however incorrect, as my roommate will defiantly tell you if asked. This custom was a comissioned project for him, the biggest Captain Marvel fan I think I have ever met.
The body is a stripped and dremmeled Aztek body with a spit-curl free Superman head. The cape is my miserable attempt at cutting fabric, with applied paint and gold cord glued on. My roommate thinks this figure is the greatist thing he's ever seen. Once I get around to making my own I hope to correct the flaws. But as long as he's happy I guess everythings kosher.
And finally we have the dearly departed Blue Beetle.
The late Ted Kord is made from the body of a Flash, sanded down with Sculpy for eyes. The BB gun is from the Teen Titans Robin clipped and trimmed. Except for the detailing on the costume ( which was a real pain!) this is a fairly easy custom.
The Beetle has always been a favorite of mine, and I think its a damn shame he had to die. But this is D.C. so I have a feeling he wont stay dead forever.
Ive got quite a few more in the works including a Hawkman, Animal Man, Plastic man, and a Deathstroke and Catman thrown in for good measure. Dont laugh, ever since "Villans United", Catman has actually become cool.
Dont worry, I havent given up on Star Wars customs, I've still got a few of them in progress, it's just that the JLU have become a nice little side project.
As always your questions and comments are appreciated.
