Vulture Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:20863  
Name:Vulture
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:CoreyVandal  
Date Added:April 1, 2010
Base Figure:Falcon
Height:6.00 inches
I normaly have a rule when it comes to customising; "I only make what I can't buy".
That means no characters or costumes that have had official 6" scale releases as in the
past I've spent weeks on certain characters only to aquire the official Marvel Legends
version soon after, making my handmade customs look weak in comparason.
But with this figure I had to break my own rule as the ML Vulture was just proving too
expensive for what would be my bazzillionth Spidey villain, especialy when conceptually
he just seemed like such an easy custom.

The entire body belonged to Falcon, and the head is an ML Loki with the helmet removed
and scalp and ears sculpted on with Milliput. The crest was just made with a thick ring
of Milliput that I picked at for about an hour with a pen.

The painting was done entirly with Citadel paint (can't recommend them enough after
having early customs ruined by inferior paints), with a dark green base, lighter green
drybrushing on the body, and a darker, more aqua green wash on the wings.

The wingspan is a little smaller than the official figure, but I love how the face
turned out on this, all grizzled and bitter.

This is really cool looking Vulture. I was reviewing some of your work and I have to say you are getting a lot better. I think changing the paint makes a world of difference. But keep at it. I know my work will never compare to the all the great customizers out there but we can strive to make a better product than whats being mass released I think that is the true reason this hobby came into existence.

this is a great vulture man! I like it! and I say, even if there are already an officially released figure and you can't afford or can't find it, just make one yourself! you got the skills sir! and I don't know why you rate your customs as the "inferior" or "weak" one compared to the factory released ones... you did a great job on this vulture!
