Venom Custom Action Figure

Custom #:2738  
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Knights
Creator:Dr Nightmare  
Date Added:May 23, 2007
Base Figure:DCSH Doomsday, XMC Sabretooth, SMC Toxin
Height:7.00 inches
In a last-ditch effort to save the woman he lov- he doesn't mind to have hanging around, Frank Castle made a deal with the symbiote known as Venom: Let the girl go safely and Frank would become the symbiote's new host, complete with all his combat knowledge and fierce intelligence, an engine of destruction which the alien-being could use for whatever purpose it desired. How could it say no?

"'re an idiot"

"And you're the idiot in love with the idiot. Now run."

"Always the romantic..."

He thought he could control it, but we've all heard that one before...


Fine, thin story, border-line believable, but it works 8) I was going to make a cool Punisher out of the XMC Sabretooth, but then I saw the ugly Toxin and spare Doomsday body lying around and figured, why not?

-Upper body and head is from DCSH Doomsday, ground-off the chest's bone detail and sculpted a new head/face with some "hair detail", I left the bony plates on the forehead visible. Sculpted the claw-like things on the shoulders too. Attached to Toxin's crotch with a screw.

-Crotch and arms are from Toxin (Sabretooth's crotch/waist didn't look right with Doomsday's body). Arms were painted black then attached to the shoulders with screws.

-Legs are from Sabretooth, painted black, also attached to the hips with screws.

-Belt is from Captain America.

-Painted it all black, then painted the face white and gave it a light black wash. I free-handed the skull and it turned out better than expected (although maybe too neat?). The eyes are just pieces of black tape, so I can change their style anytime I want!

-Figure kept all poseability.

There's a picture of how he looked in the Marvel Civil War comic, I tried to give him that hooded appearance but that meant eliminating head movement! So I got as close as possible. He wasn't really Venom in the comic, it was just Spidey seeing Punisher in the sewers and hallucinating after being beaten to a pulp by some bad guys.

Oh, LOL. Well, what's great about partial pictures is you get free creative licence :P
cowboyink - Monday, June 11, 2007
I meant from the comic, you only had one picture from the comic to work from
Dr Nightmare - Monday, June 11, 2007
Heh, I was going to take more pictures (like side and back-views) but he's pretty much black everywhere, no other significant detail to be shown, so I'd rather use-up the pics this way.
cowboyink - Sunday, June 10, 2007
:APPLAUSE: while most of us use several pictures for reference you had one panel and well as you know thats a tuff thing to do. so :APPLAUSE:

Lol, you don't have to add captions, why would you add a caption anyway? What kind of crazy person adds captions to pictures!? Madness!
18thstreet-Geppetto - Friday, June 1, 2007
eh the figure is raw who cares about the caption, rather a good custom with captions than a janky one I say
