Nick from '4 Color 8 Bit Comics' (Real Person Custom Figure) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:29367  
Name:Nick from '4 Color 8 Bit Comics' (Real Person Custom Figure)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:May 7, 2011
Base Figure:BTVS Spike
Height:6.00 inches
In between slaying popular characters from every genre, Nick co-manages '4 Color 8 Bit Comics & Games" in Kingston, Ontario. A friend of his commissioned this figure of him as a present over a year ago, and includes a variety of magnetic accessories and a custom made papercraft/magnetic display stand.

Recipe:
BTVS Deluxe Spike (Body/legs - resculpted)
ML Professor X Arms (upper + elbow)
MM Joker Goon (Lower forearms)
Unknown hands - possibly from 2 Heroes figures
Heroes Hiro (head, resculpted to look like Nick)
Ninja Sword (metal, made by FlawPunk)
Various neonium magnets from Gaussboys: two in his feet, two in the pelvis/sculpted over, and one in the left hand.
Magnetically-attaching Cigarette pack and iPhone made from Apoxie sculpt, paint and decals.
The shirt's chest logo was also made with a white-background Testor decal set.

I used the same template I made for my Obama figure, but changed the colors/look in Photoshop. I printed it on cardstock, and scored/folded/glued it, while reinforcing it with large pieces of styrofoam - cut to size.
I added 2 steel bolts fixed into some foam as an insert/support for the figure's papercraft base as well. The magnets in the figure's feet attract to the base, but aren't so strong as to damage it (as it would be if both sides were full magnets).

Mini-Nick is still on display at 4 Color 8 Bit Comics in Kingston, Ontario next to my Obama custom. :)
