Looks great, but one suggestion Bob, use the clunkier boots fro deadpool. After that, it'll be perfect. Don't hate me for my criticism. :(

Very nice, Bob. Like you said, the costume has been portrayed wildly inconsistently, and it doesn't help when Flash keeps losing control of the symboite and it keeps morphing into classic Venom, either. So really, any interpretation would work. :)

Nice work, but now he needs a Lee Burns Minimate to go with him.

And I can't believe you let Lee talk you into thinking Flash Venom is a good read.

That is VERY nice looking.
I think i would have gone with the boots with the grip along the bottom (as suggested by MINI_MYTE) too! But aside from that, he's pretty darn perfect!

Can you PLEASE post it on DST's facebook? I'm dying to see Lee Burns go mad!

Thanks a lot guys!

Now I hate you for your criticism! Kidding, that's a pretty good idea I haven't thought about! I don't want to recolor Deadpool's boots for Venom, but I'M think I have another pair of those boots in my parts bin.

Nice work, but now he needs a Lee Burns Minimate to go with him.

And I can't believe you let Lee talk you into thinking Flash Venom is a good read.

Best suggestion for a minimate ever. ;) (I feel like Lee Burns is becoming a somewhat dull (duller?) version of Leroy Jenkins.

Can you PLEASE post it on DST's facebook? I'm dying to see Lee Burns go mad!

Done. ;)

Hey Bob just checked out your Bamf page and noticed my Cyber there, glad you think " Mattallica did a pretty good job on this Cyber Minimate" but FYI those arms are not 2.5s they are standard 2" mate arms that i sculpted over with apoxie sculpt.

Doing a custom of this guy was a very quick desission I made and I really like his simple but very iconic look. Here is

Isaiah Bradley - The Black Captain America

Back when I was living in New York I picked up a used TPB of "Truth - Red, White & Black" basicly because I liked the cover a lot and I liked the idea of the story. Together with a lot of other books and comics I did send it to my German address and it was very cool to get all that stuff to look through later on. Somehow, I totally forgot about Truth and it was this summer when I read it for the first time and I liked it a lot, both its story and the look! For those of you who aren't familiar with it: it takes place in 1942 and deals with a group of African American soldiers on which Dr. Reinstein's Super Soldier Serum is tested and it tells their story up to the present day - becoming more or less a part of Marvel continuity (see Young Avengers for instance or ask Miry).
Spoiler
I especially liked that ending of the story. Some great pictures there. Truth has a critical perspective on those days and a bittersweet tone. Don't get me wrong, this is Marvel, but still.

So I did this custom of Bradley as Black Cap the way he's pictured in Young Avengers falshbacks. It's a rather easy custom, but I really like that look. I especially like his shield on which he drew the "Double V for Victory" sign. To get that look, I drew that double V crest with a graphic tablet by hand and made a clear decal out of it. I then gave one of those WW2 Cap shields a wheathered metallic look and applied the decal. And I'm very satisfied with how it looks.

The recipe: Iron Fist's bandana with the hair cut off, painted blue, David Palmer's head, WW2 Cap's shoulder piece, gloves, belt and repainted shield with a decal, a repainted torso and some pants and boots from my parts bin. You can view more pics on my flickr page.

Thanks a lot guys!

Bravo Bob.

Thanks. I think this guy is a great charatcer and Marvel did a pretty sensitive job creating him and that story arch. I think stuff like this doesn't happen very often in mainstream comics. And while I guess no toy company picked him up yet, I'm glad you find a lot of really nice customs of him.

Now that is a good custom! Isaiah has been on my "should-do" list for a while, but you actually made him, and made him much better than my original plans. Well done!

I"m also impressed that you drew the "Double V" sign. I could never find a clear picture of them to make a decal from.
