Hello all, It's been a minute since I've completed anything remotely "Custom"... Not that I've been totally absent, I notice a lot of new talent that wasn't here a few years ago?!? Growth, that's what I view it as, onward and upwards!

Anywhoo... I started a Custom a week project before I got so frustrated with Hasbro, Those last couple of waves were good for heads/accessories/placeholders, I had no use for them in my collection. Then, then... We got the Marvel Two-in-One (it's in continuity, and it's a way better title for that line!) I hated the new Deadpool, but I swear Black Widow & Winter Soldier renewed my faith in ML!

Blah, blah, blah, yakkity-smakkity, wanna see some pics?

Sersi- I had the idea to sublty alter the shapes of the female bodies by swapping out their appendages, add length here, remove length there... Storms legs just looked so sexy on the Betsy body? So I played with her dimensions until she had that George Perez look (post 90's!)

*EDIT* Sorry, I had to go be a defendant right quick...

This here is Magneto, he just needs a hug... So far, I've seen a bunch of people use this head and some ridiculously muscled base?! Why not pour gas on the fire? I modded his original figs arms and legs to receive Luke's joints. I plan to steal Lestat's(???) idea with the copy of the same head, embelished with the permanent helmet as the alt head.

Wait, is that a Marrow custom?! Wasn't she one of the three mutants that killed the X-men franchise? Oh, I get it... You just want to do one of Joe Mad's designs as an homage to being an X-Men creator? I can't hate on that, whose hands are those? Boxset Rogue's!?! You're cool ARES, but you're crazy man...

Red Skull, in what appears to be dressed in a variation of his appearance early in Brubaker's run... Before he even killed Luskin. I wanna sculpt a WWII appropriate sweater/shirt for him to finish him up.

See... My problems with every factory Spiderman is of course a scale issue. Articulation factors in heavily as well, but, I like the fact that Daredevil and Iron Fist have the same build as Spidey and Vise-versa.I just lowered his overall height with a "hip pop" & Quad switch.

Here's another batch...

Here we have Havok & Polaris, together again... for the first time?!

Everyone needs a big killer robot in their toy collection, am I right?! So, considering how they haven't given us any... per se! I made this here ultron, He's almost 7 inches?!

Not that I had a problem with "The Bro's" Doc... I just wanted one to resemble Flash Gordon from the 80's movie

I want an Executioner that dwarfs Thor Odinson, So when the meet in the field of battle those in attendance will tremble at every clash of their weapons! (Now if only I could wrap my head around his skirt thingy?!)

Speaking of... Here's Thor, I was in the process of givin him a major bump in scale when the SDCC one was revealed. I still need a massive, classic costume Thor for ish & giggles?

Hey, thanks for all the comments/views... I was trying to finish some pieces for my first ever CustomCon, but tomorrow never comes?! My birthday was the day after the deadline, so all weekend I was fielding calls and PMs. Full of excuses, aren't we all?! Hey look at this plastic;

Severely lacking in updates is one of my faves, Ms. Marvel! I just wanted to craft a more majestic body for her, something to look shiny and fresh with the 2 Pack Widow, I'll shape her calves and forearms, I'm sure...

As you can see, my Grim Reaper is a fairly easy transition... Iron Fist was overscaled, Who needs Ripclaw (...Sorry Silvestri?!) and AoA Wolverine will be in surplus until 2113.

In my opinion, Psylocke has been used and abused, her body and head have played out for so many customs, I wanted to TRULY hit her off proper... (It's supposed to sound suggestive)

The main thing I'm looking forward to is fabricating his massive sword, this is Heimdall... He's huge!

Look at the height advantage Omega Red has over Wolverine?! I need to find a suitable tentacle for Red, but his arms, legs head on AoA Sabes is brilliant!!! (Excuse my ego, bonus shot of Omega Red?)

Don't be afraid to comment... Thanks in advance

Wowee! I've barely scratched the surface?! I'm gonna make this batch my last, for today at least... I'm not gonna be uploading for the next 6 hours! Basically, I've been asembling bodies, but not sculpting and painting them, I'm trying to develop a system (BS) I have no excuse, I lack motivation to finish, I'm such a quitter?

I'm really happy with Rahne's hair sculpt. I wanted that look from the new X Factor w/Stroman on art. Damn the 90's made us hate everything, huh?

I really dug the pink haired cargo pants look she had recently... Quick; which version will my custom Dazzler be?!

I guess the son of Avalance has his work cut out for him? By that I mean Rictor...

"So slick they need to call me grease" I had to crank out a banshee... My X-men display must own all!

For some reason, this dude generates a lot of hate? Don't care... his mardi gras themed suit is cool with me?!

I'm just gonna staple these up here till you guys motivate me to finish em'? I should slap some paint on a wave for Custom Con? (Six days, Is that do-able? Who cares?! Finish something!) I got into a serious thing with needing to customize Marvel women, a bunch of them! Let's just say I was sick of getting no acknowledgement from a couple of customizers who kept stealing recipes. Then hasbro stole my Crossbones, rendering my argument redundant.

Nate has "Wildcat" Chris Harris' Quads, and coat. I did a "Hip & Body Pop" to negate his Gorilla arms. Oh and his boots are so bomb, I think I'll puff up his knee pads tho?

Siren is a long time favorite for one reason alone, she was crazy enough to fall in love with the next figure?!

I read someplace that you can't consider yourself a customizer until you made a Deadpool?! Get a good look, this is the most you'll see of him. I like the length of the original figs limbs, matched with FO Punisher's bulk... EMC would be proud?!

I loved her when I was a kid, imagine Wanda with no control of her powers, but a fraction of the strength... Ta-Daa! You got Domino! I hated the lack of mobility in the original fig, now if I could find a head?

This was my first completed custom (in ML scale that is) I hated the original head, he looked rather simian? So new shins and a new head. he get's redemption
