Help with a Custom WildCATS figure (Lord Emp)

Posted in Custom Workstation

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?

Finished! I think... Here's Emp/Jacob Marlowe along with my Spartan WIP



I custom scuplted over a Doc Ock Showdown figure all over.

Oh yeah, and welcome to the boards! There are only a few of us running around here so remember to tell your friends

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.

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

I'm thinking I might just Apoxie sculpt 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.

Doc would be good since he's already kind of wide :P

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.

Oh the guy that looks like Jack Kirby

Maybe even a LOTR Gimli with some dremeling would work?

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.

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

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.
