Winter Soldier Custom Action Figure

Custom #:3143  
Name:Winter Soldier
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Dr Nightmare  
Date Added:July 3, 2007
Base Figure:Lots o' Parts
Height:6.20 inches
Never being satisfied with a character's design, itching to get rid of old fodder to make room for the new, and coming up in War Journal to tear Punisher a new one, here's my mandatory customizer's right-of-passage custom (someone has to come-up with a cool acronym for that), Winter Soldier with HoM Wolverine body.

Lots of body-swapping on this one and I like the result:
-Airstrike Wolverine base body
-Nightwing's head
-Captain Marvel's right bicep
-Stealth Cyclops's left arm
-Captain Marvel's lower knee area
-Boromir boots
-Random weapons, holster from Lara Croft

I left the hair short because it's hot (darn summer), I'm lazy, and it's a good idea for soldiers to have short hair. I painted the little buttons and buckles silver, I hope they're visible in the pics to you folks. I don't like the ribbed/hosed arm he has in the comics so I used Cyclops's more modern-looking arm. It's now even stronger, indestructable, contains a high-capacity diamond-enhanced hard-drive, interfaces with almost any computer system, projects holographic images to view stored data, and has speakers with headjacks to play MP3 or WMA files so he can listen to loud heavy metal music while he preps for an assignment, like every guy dressed in black leathers likes to do. And yeah, I missed a few a spots, the paint always looks done until I shoot a flash at it and all the thin spots stare back, sneering, mocking, plotting my demise...

Oh yeah, and I left-off the red star on the shoulder, I didn't like that thing either :P

It's the Mattel Nightwing, DCD figs are too expensive for me to buy just for a head
Yup, I liked it because it looks young but can pass as a 20-25 year-old

very, very nice. nightwing's head is a great choice that never would have occurred to me.

This is a fabulous custom Doc! Nice use of a whole bunch of parts. I'm tempted to use this recipe myself Is that the Mattel Nightwing head or the DC Direct one?

aaaaaaaay! it's about time we see something from the good Doctor! that is a great adaption and conversion and use of nightwing's head. this makes me really want to do one also...but who has the time??? this custom really looks like something that you could buy off the shelf.

VERY nice work, Doc
And you say you want a new cam? your pics and your figs are always very well executed
Dr Nightmare - Wednesday, July 4, 2007
Exactly I mean... I humbly accept all the comments... I'll try not to have Sonja take too long to make, I have to finish her iron bikini and she'll be all ready for paint.
Oh noes, GJ is going to upstage us all! xP I'll be on another hour or so, I'll keep a look-out for it.

agreed! awesome work doc! I made mine a little different, it should be up in a little bit...! ^_^

Doc, when you do eventually submit a figure, it's always awesome.

As I said last night in YIM awesome work bro I really like how you did the arm and yes I think you got all the red spots. I still like the blue idea though.
Dr Nightmare - Tuesday, July 3, 2007
Oh yeah...forgot the fingers xD!! I've been staring at the sun for too long, I'm all colorblind Maybe I'll make them clawed fingers...I'll paint them silver and make removable claws for it :P
Go for the copy, the parts are all easy to get at KB, 5 dollars per figure! (well, not the boots, you could use FO Red Skull's boots though)
AREZ - Tuesday, July 3, 2007
WOW Dr.N! That Winter Soldier is AWESOME, he looks better than mine. I have a suggestion, You should paint the fingers on the left arm silver, too. So they can combine with the arm. I might have to copy your version, hope you don't mind.
