My 2nd X-Men Movie style Minimate, I had to create the infamous MAGNETO! Like Nightcrawler, he was pieced together from a bunch of other characters.

The body is mostly from a comic style Nick Fury minimate. The head was probably the most difficult task. I REALLY wanted to use a LOTR Gandalf minimate head for this one, but I didn't realize until I saw one at the comic shop that they were out of normal scale with other minimates. So...I just tried my best to mock up the Gandalf face on to a GB Peter Venkman head (This was dremeled of all facial features, save for the eyes). The cape and half-skirt thingy were made from epoxy, and are removable. The hairpiece is from a comic-style minimate Magneto as is the helmet. This was the fun part! The little horn things on Magneto's helmet were dremeled off and this part of the helmet was smoothed down. I then used epoxy to create the "winged" details on the front of the helmet. The entire thing was sanded smooth and was painted a gloss burgundy.

The final photo is my Magneto with other members of the minimate Brotherhood (which will be growing soon with more customs ;c) ).

That is basically it. Comments are welcome! Thanks for looking!
