Thanks a lot guys! I'm really glad you like him!

Just in case anyone is going to make his own Bradley custom, here's my design for his shield. Print it out on clear decal paper and place it on the repainted shield.

I've got so many Captain Americas at this point that I thought about doing him; your version turned out rather nicely. If I ever do get to him, I'll use that decal too. Nice work; nothing better then a simple custom that looks great. :thumbsup:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: HELLPOP GETS IT.

Great. there will be no living with him now.rolleyes.gif

Thanks hellpop. Actualy I thought you already made him weeks ago but haven't had the time to take a pic of him yet. :whistling:
(Sorry man, but I still like to tease you with that. And feel free to do the same. If you feel offended in anyway, just let me know and I will stop it. (Maybe.) :tongue: )
Anyway, I'd be glad if you use that decal. You're very welcome.

Nah, I don't mind at all. It's a good running joke, even if no one else has no idea what we're talking about. :thumbsup:

Now that I'm a member of the forum I can finally post and tell you what an amazing customizer you are! That Hellboy is EPIC. They all look great, but that HB really stands out for me. (Not to derail the thread...) Ever thought about making Abe Sapien?

Nate, thank you very much! (I missed your comment here for some reason.)
I was thinking about customizing Abe, but back then I had no idea how to do his gills and I haven't thought about him since then. Now we got the Creature From The Black Lagoon and there might be some new possibilities.

Right now anything Hellboy is on my to do list, but I'll look into him later.

You already saw them at CustomCon 30 but as I said, after submitting the pics I went back and tweaked every single one of them. More or less. So let me re-introduce them to you again one by one:

Posted Image

I wanted to do some Arkham Asylum inspired Minimates for quite a while now and I can even imagine working on another set. (And since Shamrock is going for Arkham City I might've found my niche here.) They are based on the game, but I changed some things here and there. Therefore I went with an own logo. But for now, let's start with the J-Man:

Arkham Joker
"Being an unrepentant homicidal maniac, extremely manipulative and antisocial, he is one of the most challenging patients at Arkham."

Besides Ledger's inspiring performance as the Joker in Nolan's second Batman movie, the Arkham Asylum one is the best take on the Joker I've seen. Mark Hamill did a great job and Joker's visual appereance in the video game is just amazing. Although he actaully never wore a straight jacket in the game, I thought it would work very, very well with him. And since the Minimates are only inspired by the game and I added my own details and ideas to them, this is the way I imagine him entering the Asylum. And when he steps off of that hand cart, he already looks insanely dangerous, don't you think?

The tweak I did here was very subtile: I painted his ears white, since I totally forgot that the fisrt time. I guess you don't see it on the original CustomCon submission, though.

Recipe: I painted a generic head white and added a clear decal for his face based on some of Luke's original designs adding some details to the mix. I tried several hair pieces (Movie Gambit thanks to eclipse and Man in Black's) and fianlly went with George Mason's hair because of the receding hairline. I really like it although it's not a typical Joker hairstyle. Other than that I used that incredible SotL straight jacket and painted his pants in Arkham Orange™. Click on any of these pics to see more of him on my flickr page.

Here's the scond inmate of my version of the famous psychiatric hospital located on the outskirts of Gotham City:

Killer Croc
"Born with a series of physical disfigurements, Waylon Jones is a misanthrope increasingly embracing an animalist, subhuman self-conception, viewing himself as a dangerous beast."

He's the first bad guy - besides the Joker - you meet in the game and he looks impressive. And huge. Really huge. For my design I basicly went with this concept art and I wanted him to be big, but not as huge as in the game. Bane should dominate the scene. So while looking through my parts bin I came across that completely useless piece from Movie Abomination / GB Butt Ugly Monster and I loved it!

The tweak I did here was a new color scheme. I wasn't that satisfied with the original design so I added a darker green tone and those darker spots on his skin. I think it works way better than his original look. And I bulked that stone on the chain up a little. He has that thing on the control art and I really liked it being his accessory.

Recipe: A completely repainted Movie Abomination with pants in Arkham Orange™. The bonds (? handcuffs?) on his arms are from Movie Mk1 Iron Man and I added that ripped of chain on one of them. The bonds on his legs and his stone accessory are Apoxie sculpt. His face is a decal. His feet are modified from 90s Beast. Click on any of these pics to see more of him on my flickr page.

Next one from my Arkham Asylum series is

Mr. Zsasz
"A low-minded sociopath and asocial serial killer, carving a mark for each of his victims into his own body."

Zsaz was a late addition to my set. The fourth spot was vacant and while browsing through the really cool concept arts I saw him and immediately had the idea how to customize him. Besides his scars, those security arm sleeves - in lack of a proper name for it - really give him this scary and crazy look. When I finished him, I realized that guy's a real sleeper. He might be my favorite custom in the whole set.

The tweak I did here were the scars. In the first version I thought about painting all those scars on his body, but it looked terrible. So I went with Kraven's chest piece which already has some scars on it. But it wasn't what I was looking for. Then I had this idea I really, really like: I gave him actual scars. I cut little slahes all over his torso, arms and legs and it immediately looks (and feels!) like real scars. I like that look a lot!

Recipe: Invader Narmor's body (or any other nude body) with one of those ugly diaper parts from the older bulked up figures. On him it looks good, since it should be recognized as this thick safety pants. His sleeves consist of two GB elbow pads and a Firefighter sleeve. I painted his pants and sleeves in Arkham Orange™ and added a weathered metallic look at the end of the sleeve. His face (I modified Luke's Voldemord design) and head tattoo are decals. The little thingy on his nec is the little thingy that came with Frankenstein. Click on any of these pics to see more of him on my flickr page.

Really nailed the likeness on this one, and great use of parts.

I gotta know though, can his elbows still bend?

Joker wore a straight jacket in the opening sequence of Arkham Asylum.

Can't wait for Harley! Gona use Little Red's hair?

Also, stupid question, but how do you get your photos to have curved corners like that?

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

Nice work on all the Arkham mates Bob. I'm really glad you ended up carving tallies into him, looks much better than before. And ingenious reuse of the Ghostbusters shoulder-pads

Thanks guys!

Yes, that's possible. You have to adjust the elbow pads a little, then you can bend them and set him up in different poses. Not completely, but I guess that's the idea of those things, right?

Joker wore a straight jacket in the opening sequence of Arkham Asylum.

Can't wait for Harley! Gona use Little Red's hair?

Also, stupid question, but how do you get your photos to have curved corners like that?

You mean the scene in Bat's car? You might be right. Cool. ;)
Harley's on the list and I have several pieces collected for her. I'm not sure if I can wait for Little Red, but it's a good idea.
And for the curved corners, it's photoshopped/gimped. Just put a layer with a small white frame above the actual image.

Bane's up next and I really like the late addtions to him. I think I'll find the time to present him tomorrow.
