So my kids always see me trying (you see I said "trying") to make customs..... And every time I make a new figure, I have to make them a promise. That one day I will make superhero team of customs based on the family.
So .. Here is that promise made good.....

The first step was to let the girls brainstorm what kind of powers they would have. And of course what would a 5 and 6 year old girl think are the the coolest powers..... that's right fairy powers, so naturally ML Wasp was the easiest and safe choice to use as a base. Now here comes the hard part..... I asked them what colors should their uniforms be... of course pink and purple... easy enough.. right.....

As for the custom of my lovely wife. I chose to use ML X-Men: united Jean Grey and ML SpiderWoman for her base. I wanted to to have the sleek look.

As for me.. well poppa is the big man around the house (or so I would like to believe) I decided my powers would be size changing or growth related, so I used a figure that was a bit bigger that the normal ML figure ( think it is a a SIGMA 6 GI Joe).. Thanks for taking the time to drop by and take a look at PROJECT: CASTLE... the super power family!!!! yeah I know corny but hey it was fun making them for the girls:


I made these figures for the purpose of the girls playing with them.. I think I will make other set.. for display...

Alma:
ML WASP with some hair modernizations
Amora:
ML WASP with some hair modernizations
Lifeforce:
Head & Legs: ML X-Men:United Jean Grey
Redwood

Some time the simple ones are the best!!!!

I think that's neat. Closest to getting my family to help is buying parts/supplies or when my dad makes a big honking letter opener/sword for a figure lol. They turned out really good.

Corny? Are you kidding? What everyone else here is saying. They're awesome and you should be proud. My family just looks at my customs and say nice. Probably because they know it keeps me from doing other things when they get on my nerves. lol. Seriously take pride you have done a great job.

That is the best use of customizing man. Immortalizing someone you love in plastic. I still have to make my fiance to accompany my own. Great job.

I think it's nice that your family gets involved in your hobby. They and you should be happy because they came out great.

This is not a corny Idea at all. I recently made a figure of dedeased father and was just talking to wife about do ones of her girls as well.
