Custom #:25426  
Name:Barbara Gordon Oracle
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman
Creator:JeddTheJedi  
Date Added:November 9, 2010
Base Figure:Marvel Legends Psylocke
Height:5.40 inches
I've wanted to make a figure of Barbara Gordon as Oracle for a while, and bought a loose Psylocke figure a couple of weeks ago. I've seen at least one custom of Babs here on the realm that uses Psylocke as the base, so I figured I could go for it. Almost every Oracle custom uses the wheelchair from Professor X; I don't have that luxury so the wheelchair was build from scratch out of card and spray-painted with Tamiya grey primer. I also don't have glasses to borrow from any other figure, so I made the glasses out of blister packaging plastic. The glasses were the hardes part of the whole custom because of their tininess. I cut off the sash/belt from Psylocke and then filled the gaps with Bondite two-part epoxy putty. I used the putty to create cuffs at the end of her jeans too. Entire figure was repainted, even the face as the flesh tone was a little too pink. The figure is 5.4 inches tall when seated in the wheelchair, and 6 inches tall when standing.

Updated with a repaint and a laptop accessory.

Thank you so much Diego, that was really encouraging! It's great to know a fellow customizer who feels the wallet pinch of this hobby. If all goes well and I can find more base figures, yes, there is more to come!

the title is wrong but who cares. what I personally like about this figure is that you took a busted bum figure and turned it into something else using materials that you had laying around the house. I too don't have the luxury or the money to buy figures just to use it for an arm or a leg. I'm happy to see something else using there creativity to actually make a custom from scratch keep up the good work and I expect to see a lot more of your stuff.

Sorry, title of the custom should be "Barbara Gordon Oracle".
