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.
