I'm kind of outside the loop in regards to DC comics, but those all look great and match my expectations of the characters. I agree that the black and gray Batman is the superior. I feel your pain about customs becoming obsolete thanks to official releases. To date, I've had Mysterio, Namor, Modern Iron Man, Gold Armor Iron Man, Civil War Spider-Man, US Agent, Taskmaster, Giant Man, Ice Man, Beast, Apocalypse, War Machine, Cloak, Dagger, Sentry, and zombie versions of Cap, Wolvie, Spidey, Iron Man, Giant Man, Luke Cage, Hulk, Wasp, and Black Panther all rendered useless by official versions. Still, it doesn't sting as much when the official release is done right.

Oh, back to the point, great job!

They look pretty good. One thing stands out though - I don't think Black Adam wears a cape. Other than that, good job!

Black Adam does wear a cape, but not often. He's usually seen wearing it on more formal occasions, like weddings or press conferences. (I've been doing my research for my own custom).

Superb customs there!
The Batman retooling is especially great, a simple change, but very appropriate.

cheers guys for the kind words, means alot having seen some of the stuff some of you have done!

and yeah, i black adam doesn't always/often wear his cape, but he does sometimes so i thought i might as well leave it on... it can always be removed when hes off ripping people in half

righto, it's been a while... I've been very busy with life n' such for quite some time, these three I actually
finished last summer, but haven't got around to sticking them up here for y'all. Fingers crossed i'll have a
bit more free time from now on, so i'll be able to get back into customising on a regular basis.

Ras al Ghul
pretty straight forward, cape (collar cut down) and skirty thing are from dr.strange, re-painted. Hair is
Dr.Strange as well I believe, but I definately altered it... somehow, a bit. Defenders' Namor chest, Valkyrie
sword (yes, I had a spare Defenders box kicking around). The head was a Dr.Fate, blackened eyebrows,
removed the goatee and stuck his tufty bits on.




Superboy
Jeans and head from one of the McFlys, BTTF series 1 I think. Chest (and hair) were BD Supes, obv.




Wonder Girl
Cassie, this is pretty much what she look like when I first really became aware of her, used one of the
pictures on DC wiki as source material. Gwen Stacy head/hair. Altered Wonder Woman torso, and the
trainers were from the same BTTF McFly.




Hope you like, may have a couple more up in the next few days.

oh... and while we're here, some 'control art' for the two-face I keep putting off... really want to save it for
a time I can give it my full attention).

now, all i've got is a pretty average camera phone, so the photo quality is far from great, but its the best I can do! I think the important parts are in focus at least.

Business Suit Lex Luthor
i've not made many customs, but I was far from happy with my original, so decided to re-do this one as i'd always intended, with a proper suit chest piece (President Parmer, 24... I believe!). Twas a toss up between the president and the animated look.




The Super Jew
well, this one I finished some time ago... its me, the Super Jew! A British hero from WWII, who fought alongside Captain America, before joining the modern day Justice League! Completely repainted, C3 Batman belt, the wrist thingys came from Wonder Woman, I think. Head and hair from the SM3 Peters.




Black Canary
This was VERY heavily influenced by Glantern's... although I opted for bare legs, and slightly shorter sleeves on the jacket.




Any comments are more than welcome, hope you guys like 'em

Wow, your Black Canary turned out really nicely. I might alter mine a bit. and thanks for giving me credit. Though, after looking at some of your stuff, I might have to be stealing your recipes, especially that awesome Ras. Keep up the great work

*But really I'm for anything that'll help Chuck see clearer and diversify the line even more, so that everyone will be happy. Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes. Also also also, the Book of Minimates needs to become a real thing. Also also also also, I'm still looking for Femme Fatales Minimates.

thanks for all the kind words guys/gals

Glantern - oh, trust me... a lot of your stuff is on my 'to do' list, with that impressive grid of DC designs n' what not.

Nessex - funny you should say that... I don't want to rush him and i'm very busy at the moment (final few weeks of university), so in the mean time i've been working on Poison Ivy and Scarecrow!


just peered up at my mates' shelf... other WIPs that are visible (not having fallen over!) are Jim Gordon, Animal Man anf a 3" Hulk

here is my entry for the vanilla mate contest...

Metamorpho
he is a basic mate, completely re-painted. As soon as I have some spares I intend to add SM3 Sandman arm pieces. A couple more pictures are in the contest thread.




Oh, while we're here, this a nice quick fix for Doctor Octopus... a nice pair of movie SHS tenticles.



... the movie SHS glider, with a quick paint job, is also v.cool.

I didn't read your first post before and I gotta agree with you on official 'Mates being made after customs.
Honestly, what were the odds that they would make Red Son Superman?

And do Doc Ock's tentacle's bend? Either was, big improvement.

i'm afraid they don't, but I agree... it's a massive improvement!

so, a few more...

Poison Ivy
heavily modified Star Sapphire head, Starfire hair, and gloves from Dr.Fate.

mainly influenced by Jim Lee's Ivy.





Two-Face
finally! suit from BSG's Vice President Baltar, coin cut out form an old cape, and a Brick Arms revolver.
The face (and half the hair) is from BSG's Admiral Adama, with the glasses removed. The rest of the hair is from
Defender's Hulk... both hair pieces were cut slightly over half, and then sanded until they fit together perfectly.

main influences were my own interpretation of Dent, as well as The Long Halloween, and the Animated Series.





The Red Hood
pretty simple, entirely repainted mate, with a Scarlett Witch cape, and a repainted Giant Man slip-over mask.





As always, thanks for looking, hope you enjoy!
