Thanks for all the compliments, guys! I'm glad you like them. I'm particularly proud of that batch, so, means a lot.

I've been trying to focus on exclusively clearing off my work bench with all the W-I-P's I keep pushing to the side. In the meantime, I thought I'd post some stuff I've had done for a while, but haven't had a chance to share :


Rachel Grey...


current Storm utilizing Liney's AWESOME decal...


a Rogue for my Uncanny Avengers lineup...


and a really simple, quick BeastNOW from spare parts I had lying around.

A few more touch ups on some of these, but pretty happy with how everything turned out.

Been so busy, haven't been able to hop onto the boards in a while-- but here's a shot of a group I finished a while ago:


Morrison's 90's JLA lineup!

(Excuse the dust)

Basically, I did not have ONE member of the Justice League in official 'mate form before I started this project. Looking up the cost of a lot of those figures, too, I just couldn't start delving into collecting DC 'mates the way I'd like to. I got a cheap BD Wonder Woman/Cheetah at Comicon this past October and in a random parts/partial fig lot I got off eBay a few months ago, I also got the parts for Batman you see up there. Besides those two figures, everything else is completely from my spare parts/extra 'mates bin (plus decals/paint/apoxie here and there)! Pretty proud I was able to scrounge up my favorite JLA lineup, finally! May go back over the detail on Wonder Woman so it's gold rather than yellow.

I really like your Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.

I have all DC minimates except Flash, Manhunter and a few of the non-main characters.

I wish I could afford C3 Manhunter and Flash on eBay but my dreams will come true someday.

Thank you for sharing your custom JLA mates. Made my day.

Liking the X-Ladies, especially Rachel, that looks like quite an involved costume design. Rogue looks really good, simpler but really slick looking.

Did I make a decal for that Storm costume? I don't remember posting one wacko.png

Well, technically it's your control art I converted into a decal:

Which is beautiful

Why thank you. I had forgotten entirely that I had done that Storm, but I'm glad you made use of it!

It's been a loooong while since I've posted anything, but the Customs forum has been so dead lately... inspired me to come out of retirement. I started taking pics of stuff I've done since I stopped posting to try and kickstart some life back into this place.

I wasn't too happy the with civilian look the first Spider-Gwen came from (as it looked too much like 616 Gwen), so I customized my own.

Just finished AoA Nightcrawler and threw together an impromptu AoA Colossus. Eventually going to swap the face out for Storm and finish the chest straps on Colossus, but all-in-all very happy with how Nightcrawler turned out.

These all look amazing, especially Kurt (but maybe I'm biased).

For a second I thought Colossus used a repainted Iron Fist mask, and I was wondering how you captured the official style so well. The Daredevil mask was a clever choice.

Thanks! Yeah, Daredevil mask was a godsend-- very simple sanding and paint touch up. Red paint can be rough for me, at times, in terms of coverage. dunno why.



Just adding my custom Rachel Grey-Summers collection to this thread. I have to clean it up-- I lost web hosting services a year back so all my old customs are just broken links :wacko:

Your modern and 80's Rachel Greys are very impressive.

What's the recipe for for that DoFP Rachel (besides Pryde's jumpsuit)? She'd be a good inclusion for my pre-Secret Wars X-Men display.

DoFP Rachel is a First Class Emma head and I thiiiink the hair is from a Daredevil.

Oh wow - The X-love is strong with this one!
I love all of these Rachel customs and updates. I agree that Modern and Red & Yellow 80's Rachel are particularly good.
