Phoenix / Jean Grey Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:20249  
Name:Phoenix / Jean Grey
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Baiji  
Date Added:March 2, 2010
Base Figure:ML Ffbox Invisible Woman
Height:5.90 inches
Another old custom that I've fiddled with again more recently.

The body is a modified ML Invisible Woman from the FF boxset, I shaved it down a lot to get a slimmer look, especially around the thighs and waist, I also shortened the arms and legs to reduce its height (I find I do this a lot with female toy figures), reduced the shoulders and feet and finally added in a spread hand from someone in my bits box.

The head used to be from a wetsuit Lara Croft (3rd pic) with the original Phoenix hair, but after reading the beautifully drawn X-Men Origins Jean Grey comic I decided I wanted her to look less 'homely' and so aimed for something more similar to Mike Mayhew's representation of her. She now uses the ML Scarlet Mitch head (which when repainted and the forehead reduced is actually very nice) and the hair is from HML movie Jean grey.

Thanks for the thumbs up. Yeah that Scarlet Witch head is nice when dealt with properly.
massprime - I thought that might happen too, but as I found with this one, you can go down pretty far and really give them a good nip/tuck before you see too much guts.... I did keep dremmeling this one though and did end up with gaps, but they just fill up with milliput easily.

Looks very nice. I've seen the scarlet witch head used a lot lately, it really is a diamond in the rough.

Truly nice work. I trim the limbs on a lot of my female customs also but I've never tried trimming hips and thighs. I'd think it would expose the inside if I timmed too far. After seeing what you've done though, I might try it at some point. The new head does look better.
