Nemesis Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:31783  
Name:Nemesis
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Select
Creator:The 4th Man  
Date Added:August 10, 2011
Base Figure:The Atom - based on the Ed McGuinness designed JLA
Height:6.00 inches
-This is the Mark Millar and Steve McNiven Nemesis - from their Icon book.
-The design and execution was pretty simple. I saw the Ed McGuinness designed Atom figure at a Convention - and nabbed it, thinking it would be a perfect base for this custom. It was then a simple matter of finding the right kind of white, and applying multiple, consistent layers to the body.
-The mask I did some detail work on. I intentionally left the mask the way the Atom figure had it - even though Nemesis' face was slightly more covered. I did this because ultimately the identity of the Nemesis is about the man in the suit himself - not the face of the man under it. I thought the look he had here - was perfect, and there was no need to alter that by altering the way the existing mask sat on the face.
-The gun was from a G.I. Joe: Extreme Deluxe Iron Klaw. I liked the way it contrasted with the white costume. I drilled a whole in Nemesis' hand, inserted the gun, and actually painted it a shade darker.
-I'm happy with the figure and how it came out. It wasn't very challenging, but I like the character and the book it's based on. It adds to my growing collection of customs, very nicely.

Hey - thanks. The cape is from a Marvel Legends: Sentry figure. The beardless version. The Sentry will actually turn up as another custom here in the VERY near future .

The white paint I used is "Americana: Acrylic Paint - Snow (Titanium) White."
