Help with a Custom WildCATS figure (Lord Emp)

Postby VariablePenguin » Mon Jul 24, 2006 6:29 pm

Hello, I'm new here and I just wanted to ask for some help making a figure.
I'm making Marvel Legends styled WildCATS figures, but I don't have any idea what base figure I should use make the dwarf Lord Imp. I bought a Puck inaction figure, but that's not going to cut it. I was think LotR hobbits as a possiblity, but does anyone else have a suggestion?

Uh, do you have any pictures of the imp? Then we can make some more educated suggestions :mrgreen:

If you're thinking of using hobbits then I'm guessing he's pretty small, so that's a good idea. I haven't seen any other small poseable figures, unless you want to use the Marvel Superhero Showdown figs that are around 4 inches.

I misspelled his name its Lord Emp. Or Jacob Marlowe is his alias.

I was also thinking I might just buy one of the Superhero Showdowns and cut out the joints and embed them in an orginal sculpt.

Oh the guy that looks like Jack Kirby :lol:

Maybe even a LOTR Gimli with some dremeling would work?

Those LotR figures doesn't seem to have very much articulation on closer examination. I think I'm going to see about getting one of the SH Showdown figures and tinker with it. I'm thinking Doc Ock or Punisher.

I'm thinking I might just Apoxie scuplt the Doc heavily for this one.
My other custom WildCATS are going great though.
I finished Grifter a while ago (I'll post him soon)
I've got Spartan, Zealot and Warblade in the works and I'm waiting for base figures for Maul and Voodoo.

I hope Zealot turns out great 8) I hope you made the grifter in his original suit, I've never seen that before in ML style.

Grifter is indeed in his original suit (none of that revamped crud). He's like Jim designed him to be. I just submitted him so he should be appearing as soon as the admins get him up and you can see what he's like.
