Modifying Marvel Minimates

Recommended Posts

Nice work Brad. Didn't realise how average Vision looked with fading limbs until i saw him with solid ones. :)

He'd probably look better with the variant Vision's cape since that one is solid.

But there's no way I'm paying $10+ for a cape so this'll due. :lol:

I have. Several times over so my girlfriend and I could both have non-phasing Visions. It's worth it, I promisey promise! ;)

I like the looks of that modified Loki... and it really bugged me that Mole Man and 1st App. Doom have two different colored greens as well.

Ut's a bit annoying from the point of view of a customizer. . . but as a collector, i think it's nice that they went to the trouble of changing colours. It seems a bit less cheap and helps to make Doom & Moley stand apart a bit more on the shelf.

Still . . . i understand where you are coming from.

I was thinking of getting some soldiers to create the Howling Commandos. Is the variant Wolverine from the Hydra 2-pack a good choice?

Got my Vision in today and didn't care for the fading legs and arms. So I used Loki's arms and legs and they match pretty well aside from the fact that Vision's chest has a slightly brighter color.

I gave Loki the leftover FA Doom and Loki Reborn parts. Too bad the cowl isn't yellow but it'll due. :lol:

Add the solid cape from Vision 2.0 to that Vision mod. I did, and it makes a world of difference. Diggin' that Loki!

Sgt.Rock would be an alternative.

As soon as I got Sgt Rock I popped off his head and stuck Nick Fury's head on him. Instant Sgt. Fury. Eye Patch Wolvie works well for that too.

Two I put together recently:

I know, we really need more Wolverine and Spider-Man minimates, but I couldn't help myself with FF Spidey and Wolverine was put together with various extra parts I had.

HA! That Spidey is hilarious! I love it!

I think they missed the mark in capturing the character's personalities in their faces. Rahne looks a bit too made up and sultry. 'Berto looks too deadpan. He should have a charming grin that portrays his flirty nature. Sam also has a very stern look that's not 100% accurate to how he was portrayed.

A really good set that could have been amazing with a little more personality in each face.

I agree Sam should have an awkward unsure expression. Rhane is a little to pretty. 'Berto is the biggest let down of the set. The hair is all wrong. He looks better without it. I tried putting the black hair on him and it blacks out his whole face. Karma is pretty much dead on. Im still glad we got them though.

Here's a quick fix on the Rahne Sinclair face. Just re-color the eyes of a Cally Tyrol minimate and voila! A more innocent / less sultry looking Rahne Sinclair.

Thanks for the inspiration, MINI-MYTE. I tried the same trick with a Nurse Chapel face. Worked pretty well, IMO.

My most recent mods came as a result of scoring a couple of extra hairpieces from Starfire! This is a GREAT hairpiece and I'm truly surprised it hasn't been reused by DST.

I've added it as is to Phoenix from the Secret Invasion set. This was a very nice figure but I wasn't thrilled with the hairpiece or the color selection. Let's be honest, with great cosmic power comes great big cosmic hair! I think this is an easy improvement and more comic accurate.

I also gave this a quick dose of gamma radiation to spice up my She-Hulk figure... another solid 'Mate whose hairpiece and color wasn't quite cutting it IMHO.

Ah, so that's what you've been using all those Starfires for! ;)

You're right, it is a great hairpiece; I can only assume they think it's too distinctly Starfire to reuse. But I think you've shown them otherwise.

Binaryan did you color the hairpiece for Phoenix or is that the normal hair color from Starfire? If so I need to pick up a Starfire.

It's the natural hair color as seen here:

here are a few modifications I've made

Doom's boots copied from SouthFLGuy... Loki update (with Lady Loki waist piece and a little paint update) influenced by Brad Redfield's version on the previous page... Domino got more weapons and a more contemporary hairpiece (repainted Rachel Grey, copied from TENIME's custom)... gave Spider-Woman TrU Namor's 'wing' pieces, and a quick repaint.

I love that Spider Woman addition. I've got an extra set of those wings hanging around, so I think I'll try that out. Great idea!

I've been trying to put together a Toro minimate but just can't seem to find the right head. I'm talkin' about the Golden Age partner to the original Human Torch.

I'm fine with re-using the Torch's body from the Invaders set but don't want to re-use the same head. Also, the new FF Torch doesn't seem to fit either. Does anybody have any ideas?

I had this one in my head from the first day I saw those minimate MAX figures. Say hello to Monstro.

"Who? What?" You say. It's cool, he's fairly unknown. This guy first appeared in Amazing Fantasy 15 (vol 2) as a superpowered firefighter hiding out after he accidentally killed his family. He's super strong, super durable, and super haunted by his past. He's classic Marvel.

Anyway, all I did was take the head from a Wonder Man figure and the hair from an unused Cable figure and presto! Passable Monstro.

If you wanted to get really fancy, you could repaint a Venkman hairpiece to give a more accurate hairline. For me though, this totally works.

I hopes ya digs.
