Shinigami's WIPalicious figures - Nightwing

Posted in Custom Workstation

First of all, sorry for crappy pics, I shoot my wips with my phone.

Here's an almost finished Kilowog. I tried some costume designs and had spare shoulder pads from the Beetle figure in the background. Though about giving him an armored look, but rest of his outfit is a normal skin tight lantern suit, so it didn't have too much sense. Though I still want to do a strike-force-type looking Kilowog.

Finished figure:

Next up is Iron Fist. I had to cut and trimm all four of his knee and elbow joints, because Gen's were too big for Vega's parts. I also cut some plastic from his feet for them to stand flat, he had a permanent case of raised toes. But I still wasn't quite done with cutting stuff. Vega has a very stylised (read: long) pair of forearms, so they had to be shortened. Cut off were his bracelets, then about half a centimeter (1/5 inch) of the arms AND THEN I've glued the remaining parts of arms to the bracelets with green stuff and super glue. I think that's about it.

Finished figure:

BTW, that mentioned Beetle figure with a Vinnie Jones head? That's a VERY early WIP of Lex Luthor. You can also see a Spider-Man in pieces.

Love that punisher, the fuzzy painted on chest symbol adds to the crazy vigilante vibe, as opposed to a perfectly neatly printed symbol like your average superhero would have.

BAM! Back from the dead. Here's a headless and armless fellow for ya.


Time warp! Here's the same guy with a new paintjob and some doodats.




And now some leg holsters.




What's with those arms? (I had to swtich and mod the shoulder disk joint for this to work)


Oh, they're for a coat!



Now, behold the power of shading!







A head with a stupid painted on beard


The same head with awesome new sculpt work by ẈĀŦƧĦĪƧ₣Ā₵Ė


And a skull!

I mean the strips looked like spawns outfit. I wanted to know how you got them so tiny? Where did you buy them? What's the brand name?

Here you are trying to build the body into a human and I am trying to get the "body" so I can make RAZOR CAT-okay, name sucks, but I can't think of one that better....YET! See, I have the arms with Ripclaw's hands painted like a tiger. I added the ties to the Beast upper arm. The legs are also painted like a tiger. With Bronze Tiger head and the right colors for the body....it would be sweet. Bad thing, I don't have the body!

good luck!

Looks cool man! And is that Thunderball's arm I see in the picture?

He still needs all the shading in the world, that's the base color.

sounds like a plan my friend.
Shinigami -

I'll let the painted parts sit for the night and show you a shot of the assembled figure tomorrow. Without any shading, only the base color.

Or maybe not. Testing a mix that's dark red/brown/purple depending on the light source. Looking good, this reminds me of the greens I used on Iron Fist, they change color too.

That's it for today, I forgot to make the horns earlier and now have to wait for them to harden a bit before I start with color paint.

I love backlash and was thinking of saying that, but never saw him with a jacket. do you have a reference pic. looking great and really impressed.

I admire your persistence, guys, but sadly, none of you guessed right. It was Backlash.

I hope Shapp won't be mad at me for showing him here before he has a chance to play with his new toy
