New here with a question on mixing Marvel/DC figures

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

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 resemble or differ from Legends.

Thanks for any help and if this is not the right forum, feel free to direct me that way.

Happy customizing friends!

If you need to put a peg into a hole that's too big, try stuffing the hole or wrapping the peg with some plastic wrap. Quick cheap way to make stuff fit.

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 !!!!
