Hello, I'm new to the community and do not have even the first clue as to begin to build a figure. I'm not really into building my own but these custom figures are where it is at. With that being said, do people sell figures here? Thanks...[See More]

New here with a question on mixing Marvel/DC figures in Action Figure Chatter by KabutoRyder   
Thursday, December 20, 2018
   [Edit]
New to the site and forum, seeing so many great customs, its making me want to try lots more. But I have to not put that cart before the horse and finish my current one, Warpath, my first one. Well I started working on a Deathstroke last night.

But I digress.

My question is on mixing Marvel and DC figures. I just like Legends better for bodies, articulation, but there are some pieces, heads mostly, some hands and boots on DC figures I fancy and my question was if they mix very well. I have tried to google and youtube things to see if people had answered that question, but had not found a concrete answer.

Can it be done on a straight one to one swap or will work need to be done, not sure of the innards of a DC figure and how much they r...[See More]

Most of the time the heads need to bored out a bit with a drill or a dremel. Or the marvel neck " ball " piece needs to be cut down to fit inside the smaller. ( if that makes sense )

That's been my experience as well, heads from DC figures have smaller holes which won't fit the ML necks without modification. As for hands, it's probably hit or miss as far as a straight swap, you'd probably have to either file down or build up the peg on the DC hands to fit the particular Legends arms you're using if it doesn't work.

If you want to try a different approach..... I buy a two part silicon molding kit at the art supply store. Mixing part "a" with part "b" it makes a putty that I then spread over the figures head wait for it to cure and now have a molding of what ever head then fill it with sculpting clay then put the neck joint from the new figures body in to the clay . takes little practice but can be very cost effetive down the road.
Best of luck !!!!! and Happy Holidays !!!!

Dissembling Female Marvel Legends in Action Figure Chatter by Thigrslayer   
Friday, August 24, 2018
   [Edit]
Hey everyone, I'm working on a body swap between the female beetle and mockingbird. Just trying to exchange the upper body from each but keep their respective arms. Can I crack the upper torsos like the male bodies? Also are the arms ratchet joints or simple interchangeable joints (by simple I mean pull as hard as you can to pop them out lol). Any tips would be great. Thanks - Thigr...[See More]

Both Mockingbird and Beetle have soft plastic upper torsos, so it's just a matter of heat and pop, either dunk them in boiling water or heat them up with a hair dryer and pull them apart. If you've never done this before, just remember it will take a few minutes of heating to get the plastic soft enough to pop off of the larger torso peg, if it doesn't come off with a moderate amount of force keep heating it until it does. The arms, which have smaller pegs will pop off before the torso will, but the same applies, if they aren't coming out relatively easily, continue heating, otherwise you can rip the upper arms off the shoulder pegs if you use too much force. Anyway, I've found that sometimes there are subtle differences between parts on the Marvel Legends figures, especially with upper t ...

You're welcome, glad I could be of assistance and it worked out. I have disassembled both figures, but never combined any of their parts.

need some help with marvel select and legends trench coat. in Action Figure Chatter by Devil of Hells Kitchen   
Wednesday, August 1, 2018
   [Edit]
I recently got the older Marvel select Gambit but I really wasn't liking the trench coat piece it came with so I removed it. I Don't need to make sleeves cause they're molded onto gambits arms. I'm not to sure how to execute this so any help will be appreciated. Also if anyone knows how tom make a trench coat for a legends punisher it'd be appreciated if you could give me a quick tutorial on how to make one....[See More]

It helps to look up free patterns for clothes, then resize them as needed. Recently I had to make a big cloak and did it this way.

Sometimes you can even simplify the process since you can glue instead of sew, you don't have to hem everything, etc.

For example, trenchcoats are usually two halves stitched together, with the lower halves stitched on too, but I'm sure you can make the trenchcoat with one piece of fabric. You'll just have to measure for the arm holes, cut it out and slip it on. ...
