A couple of years ago I made a movie Nick Fury custom around the time the first Iron Man movie came out. I never was fully happy with it though, and that was long before I had time to really grow as a customizer. I've since gone back and made another movie Nick Fury, because why not? He's awesome. I used the head from a McFarlane Shaft figure, and the body is the Ultimate Nick Fury from the 2 pack a couple of years ago. The cigar came from the NECA Duke Nukem figure. All paints used were Testors Model Masters and all sculpting was done with Aves Apoxie Sculpt.

The head was dremeled out to fit onto the ball peg on the neck of the Nick Fury body, and the eyepatch was sculpted on (thought about engraving "BMF" on the eyepatch, haha). The cord of the patch was made from black sewing thread that I glued on and sealed over it. This is the same technique I used before and that one has held up perfectly all these years.

Next I reworked his web gear. I wanted it to match the kind he wore in the movie. He just had a holster that strapped under his arm, so I cut up the webgear and glued the straps back in a different way to make it fit back to match the movie. It's still removable so long as you can get the coat off.

Then I sculpted the turtleneck, one of my favorite parts of Nick Fury's outfit in the movies. Sam Jackson definitely knows how to make anything look cool.

Next, I painted the legs with flat black, and dry-brushed a bluish gray over the shirt to help it stand out from the rest of his outfit. That can be a hard thing to accomplish with a character who wears all black, but you just have to add different shades of gray to help not make the character look boring.

The last thing I did was paint the tops of his two pistols silver and gave him a cigar and Nick Fury is ready to fight alongside Iron Man and Captain America and rest of the Avengers!

Nice. It looks like you got an early copy of the 6" movie Nick Fury that's coming out from Hasbro this year. SWEET!

Nope, this one is 100% custom. Sculpted turtleneck, painted legs, and the head is from McFarlane Shaft.

I saw it over at TNI. Hasbro's doing a 6" Cap and Nick Fury this August I think. It reminds me a lot of the 6" Iron Man and War Machine they did last year. I'm sure there'll be another two characters that come out with the DVD as well. You should check 'em out. They look nice, although Sam Jackson's got all his guns by the stocks in the pic Yeah, I knew it was a custom, it just looks super factory made
