Base Figure:X-Men FC Azazel minimate and other random Minimate parts
Height:2.00 inches
Probably the longest amount of time I've spent customizing a minimate, the task of creating an X-men: United Nightcrawler was a project I was really looking forward to. I always thought they should've created more X-Men movie based minimates, and since the release of the X-Men: First Class figures, I've been busy with a few custom characters. Nightcrawler was the first completed.

My obvious choice for a base figure was the XM:FC Azazel (basically because anywhere you find a comic style Nightcrawler minimate, they are outrageously OVERPRICED!) I used Azazel's tail and hands, but then decided that a light colored minimate body would be better to use to avoid paint removal and the blue would show up better. I used some random minimate parts for the rest of the body. The hair is from a Battlestar Galactica minimate. I used epoxy to sculpt the ears on the hairpiece. The feet were custom made from some random minimate feet that I dremeled and sculpted, again with epoxy. The entire upper body and feet were painted a Oxford Blue and detailed by hand (eyes, mouth, tattoos, vest and cross, finger and toe nails) and the pants were hand-painted as well (couldn't get the detail on those too good :c[ ) The final detail was a X-Men Origins Gambit figures coat.

The final photo is Nightcrawler with the movie style X-Men (some store-bought, some custom)

Comments are welcome! Thanks for looking!

Very nice! If you want the comic Kurt, you can grab the Excalibur box set or the new TRU 2-pack with Kurt and Betsy Braddock!
