I thought your Zsasz was the best of yor Arkham Asylum set, and I really love the new details. I never would have thought about making actual cuts into the Minimates, and I'm impressed that it works so well. And I still love how you did the sleeves.

Here's the last one (so far) from my Arkham Asylum series:

Bane
"One of the worst substance abuse cases, Bane is both physically and mentally addicted to the Venom compound, becoming a physical monstrosity and a highly intelligent and strategic mind."

I bought Juggernaut to use this new bulked up body for customs. I was planing to do a different guy first, but I postponed that idea when I thought about the Arkham set. Bane was the first character I really wanted to do. I knew that he'd need a lot of sculpting and that was a real challenge. I haven't used that much sculpted parts on a custom, ever. I hated it a little, but I'm satisfied with how he turned out. This one here, not the original version. He really needed those bigger tubes on his back and I found them when I was up at my parents' attic where all my old Legos are stored. I really like the weathered metallic look on his arm and leg cuffs and the rusty look on those tubes.

The tweak I did here was some sculpting on his backpack and adding the tubes. He wasn't finished when I submitted the original pics, but I really wanted to participate. A few days after the deadline I went back and started working on the bigger tubes on his back and also added his belt, which I also forgot.

Recipe: I used a bulked up Juggernaut including his face. I used an Ultimate Cap mask modified with Apoxie sculpt and re-painted it. I cut holes in the back of the mask and put the smaller tubes trough it to make it look as if those tubes were really stuck in his head. The gear on his torso is a modiefied backpack from a G.I. Joe figure with some sulpting for the metal collar. His arm and leg cuffs are sculpted and I added a lot of smaller plastic pieces (including a Minimate cell phone, which is kind of funny). His belt is sculpted. I went with sanded down Thing feet, since I wanted him to be barefoot and Hulks feet were way too big. To connect the bigger tubes to his arms I drilled holes in the Juggernaut shoulder pieces and added some Apoxie sculpt. The bigger tubes are Legos. His backpack is a Ghostbusters' proton pack with an Fire Fighter's oxygen tank, a modified Hercules' mace and some Apoxie sculpt. I guess that's it. Click on any of these pics to see more of him on my flickr page.

Thanks guys!

I was talking to my local comic shop guy recently and he suggested to do a little exhibition with my customs. I thought that's a very cool idea and, well, here it is! :biggrin:

Thanks a lot guys! I thought they look pretty nice when displayed in that kind of style, too. And no wine and no cheese, that's too French. We had Sauerkraut and Bier. ;)
Just kidding.

A few months back I was contacted by a Canadian girl via my flickr account telling me that her boyfriend is a huge Dr. McNinja fanboy and asked if she could buy a Dr. McNinja Minimate from me to give it to him on Valentine's Day. I told her I don't want to part with my own custom and since the parts are hard to obtain right now (especially the cool movie Gambit coat) I would do a different Dr. McNinja with the parts I'd get. I used a regular coat for him but it didn't look as cool as he needs to. And while I'm not a fan of the whole Valentine's Day thing, I think if there's a girl who wants to give her boyfriend something as cool as a Dr. McNinja action figure for that special day - Dr. McNinja as the gift of love ladies and gentlemen! - and she tracked one down and asked a completely stranger some thousand miles away to customize one, I needed to support that idea in any possible way. So I did not only part with my original custom but went ahead and made a custom package for him as well.

Bob, that's awesome of you to do. You're a better man than me.
Also, with the MVC3 Wesker coming out you can probably recover the parts pretty easily

Thanks guys. The tube package came with that ninja flash drive and I kept it, because it was the perfect size for a single minimate.

I won't respond to the first sentence, but the second one in mind let me part with my custom a lot easier. ;)
