First attempt at a custom

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello everyone --I am brand new to this, after getting the bright idea that I could create my own "Daniel Craig as James Bond" action figure by popping the head off of a Daniel Craig Golden Compass figure and attaching it to another random figure's body that happens to be wearing a tux/suit/etc. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, so far I have been completely unable to find a figure to use as the body. So either I just need to search harder.....or I'm going to have to get creative here.

So my question for everyone here is this: Does anyone know of an existing 3.75 - 4" action figure that has a James Bond-ish body that I could easily attach my Daniel Craig head to? If not, does anyone have any suggestions for what direction I should go next in creating one? Thanks for any suggestions or advice anyone may be able to offer!

Heh......naked torture Bond.....I can only imagine the look on people's faces when they saw that!

Thanks for all the suggestions. It's time to do a little shopping around this weekend to see what I can find!

Takara just put out Lupin III Micromen, but they can be a bit pricey. You could feasibly use an Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull "Mutt" and modify his outfit to look like a tux. Or...if you're kinda twisted, you could use a SHS Silver Surfer and make "Naked Torture Bond" lol...

That varies, nothing is ever definite when customizing, there are 6.5-inch DC Direct figures whose heads are perfect for 6-inch figures, and 6-inch heads that look just fine on 7-inch customs, you have to see them first-hand to tell for sure.

Thanks -- I hadn't even thought of those! After doing a little research, it looks like the Doctor Who figures are around 5", while the Golden Compass figures are closer to 4". So would the head from the 4" figure look really odd on a 5" figure's body?
