Super Amateur Basic Customs!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I've been lurking around the 'verse for quite a while now, so I thought it was time that I shared my super simple customs (mainly just part swaps)

Now I know these aren't the best of customs, but I'm just getting started and hopefully in time they'll become more elaborate.

... and since this is also an Artwork forum here are some pictures!

I think many of these are superb ....whilst I'm often in awe at some of the more elaborate customs shown on this forum, many

of the simplest of part swaps turn 'mundane' into 'magnificent' .....notably your Colossus & Punisher . :thumbsup:

Some nice stuff here Tinny! esp digging that Cap and Beast!

As the others have said, sometimes less is more - there's something very satisfying in just using existing parts to improve or create a character.

Really like the Captain America, he looks great.

Edit: what legs did you use?

Thank you so much! And minimadman was correct the legs came from the S.H.I.E.L.D Agent from Wave 27. Thanks again for the compliment!

And thank you to everyone for your kind compliments. I was worried I might get bashed on for my customs for being too simplistic or uncreative, but I am so glad to see that everyone here has welcomed me with open arms. I definitely take your compliments to heart and I'll try to create more customs if possible. @Squall thanks for the compliment on my shots I was experimenting with a homemade light box :) Once again thank you everybody!

I dig the use of Tony Stark's bearded head for The Punisher, and is that Jigsaw's hair? These look purdy epic.

Thanks I was inspired by the current look of Punisher in the comics and that hair is from Jigsaw, nice catch.

I think a lot of people have the mentality that a custom needs to have sculpting and a new paint job. This just proves them wrong. As the other members have said simple customs are sometimes the best. With all the minimates that have been produced, everyone can make their own version of the characters as they interpret it. Your customs are great representations and have me thinking about doing these changes to my figures. Keep up the good work, I'll be keeping my eye on this thread for sure.

This quarantine has provided me the ample time needed to finally get back in touch with my mates. Here a few basic customs that I’ve been working on. Enjoy!

Those are truly "super-amateur, basic" and very effective customs! I LOVE that Longbow Hunter Green Arrow!

I'm lamenting the absence of a continuing line of DC Minimates but stuff like this gives me hope that some fun customs are within reach.

real nice. The Robin looks like he'd rip your arms off an stuff em down your neck then leave you to good officers of GCPD

Yeah I figured why not make Robin a little more intimidating. Always found him to be unevenly prepared and under-equipped when compared to Batman.

Thank you so much! And yeah I’m proud of that one too definitely amplifies the regular Green Arrow mate for me. 
 

Yes! I wish they produced more DC characters. There are so many on my wish list that I still hope to be made.

Really like your Hawkman and the updated images of the DC heroes.

Robin is a nice update and the Aquaman and Wonder Woman look nice.

Thank you for sharing them.
