mtd20_2000 Posted May 20, 2010 Share Posted May 20, 2010 (edited) If there is already a thread about this subject then I apologize in advance to the moderators and ask that it be moved to where it should go (I have seen threads about customizing and compatibility, but not modifying). I admit that I am not talented enough to customize minimates, but I have found ways around this, mainly by modifying certain figures that I feel are dated by using parts from other minimates. The other day I was thinking that there is not a thread for Marvel minimate collectors to bounce around ideas about how to improve our mates. I figured I would start the ball rolling on this. Since some members have already commented on the modifications I have done to my Fantastic Four minimates, I will begin with them. Invisible Woman: I mainly used a SCE Susan Richards, with the right arm from a wave 8 Invisible Woman variant, and an AFX Defenders box set Valkyrie head, with a SCE Dark Avengers box set Ms. Marvel hairpiece. Mr. Fantastic: I mainly used a SCE Mr. Fantastic without the lab coat (to get the black boots and belt), with a DST Dark Avengers box set Captain Marvel head, and a TRU exclusive stretch attack Mr. Fantastic hairpiece, with Mr. Fantastic wave 8 stretchy arms. Human Torch: The legs and midsection are from a SCE Johnny Storm (mainly to match my Invisible Woman), and the arms, body, neck flame, flame hairpiece, and fireball are from a DST Invaders box set Human Torch, with the head and fire blast from a wave 8 Torch. Thing: The legs and arms are from a SCE Thing, with a powerhouse Thing body and midsection, and a clobberin’ time Thing head (the oversized fists were taken from which ever Thing minimate had the best paint job). I will occasionally post other modifications that I have done to my collection and encourage others to post pictures and give ideas as to how we can improve our minimates. Hopefully, this will be a useful reference tool for all of us. Edited May 20, 2010 by mtd20_2000 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
