DC Direct Cyborg Superman: Re-Articulated Version Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:19269  
Name:DC Direct Cyborg Superman: Re-Articulated Version
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:D.C. Universe
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:January 11, 2010
Base Figure:DCD Sinestro Corps. Cyborg Superman / DCUC Cyborg Superman
Height:6.00 inches
Unhappy with the DC DIRECT figures arm articulation/pose, I removed the original arm and spliced the stump on to a modified DC Universe Cyborg Superman arm. Afterward, I individually cut and placed each ring into his hand.

I felt a little bit like a jeweler cutting each ring section from the original hand, then cutting out small indentations for them to fit on the new DCUC figures fist. I also used a modified raised shield-decoration from the DCUC Cyborg Supes' figure. The overall appearance really pops when compared to the original.

After repainting the metallic areas, with Vallejo gunmetal and silver, I sealed the entire figure with Vallejo matte varnish (except for the cape). The right arm (or 'punching arm' as I always thought of toys right appendage) now has a wider range of motion.

-DC Direct Sinestro Corp Cyborg Superman (main figure, right hands Yellow Lantern rings)
-DC Direct Cyborg Superman (Chest-symbol decoration piece, right arm/modified)
[The flight stand came from an an online retailer in China. I've looked, but I can't locate them any longer. It's a shame, as they're great stands.]

Hope you like this modified figure. :)

This is amazing. I really liked that figure to begin with , but you improved it by leaps and bounds. You TOTALLY changed the expression on his face from whatever it was supposed to be, to extremely pissed off. The repaint you did was wonderful. Great job.

SWEET!! I like the look a lot. I envy you (and all the rest of) you who can swap parts without destroying the figure. Nice work! - Fitz -
