Name:DC Superheroes 6inch Cyborg Superman New costume
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Superheroes
Creator:Michael Condello  
Date Added:July 8, 2007
Base Figure:dcsh superman
Height:6.00 inches
ok so I made the 12 inch new costume, and the 12 old costume, and then I also made the 6 inch old costume cybrog,, so it seemed only natural to make a 6 inch new costume.

This one I took a lot more time on. I feel he turned out ten times better then my other 6 inch cyborg. I really sculpted the face to make it more comic book acurate,, as well as his cyborg arm and chest,, really give it that metal robot look.. Also I did shading on his costume to reflect the feel of the comic book..I was able to maintain just about all of the orginal articulation. All of his stolen power rings glow in the dark... other then that I was really pleased with how he turned out.... I wanted to keep him for myself,, but my wife keeps trying to get me to sell him....

I don't know if you consider me worthy of customizing along side you but if you did I would be glad to help with a toy line.
Just think what we could all do. We could make customizing a HUGE thing. Just imagine all of us on CBS in the morning!
It would be awesome!

Ya know you can totally count me in on that idea!
Unfortunately there is money to definitely be made on that! Insted of worrying about what they think kids want in a toy or how much cheaper or smaller they can make it to save money. The companies should really think about what they can really sell,for how long and to how many different cross category buyers! Not lets case pack 4 Heman, or 4 Skeletos, or 4 Superman or 4 Batmen!
I'm seriously considering when making customs making a mold and then if I need more just cast the pieces & assemble!

actually it was another poster who suggested the rc car glow paint... I actually have been using this glow in the dark sealer... so it seals and glows,, kinda cool,, I picked I up at AC moore.for like 1.45,, it drys pretty clear,, but what I recommend is painting like 3 to 4 light coates,,, but you have to let it dry throughly between each coates as not to get any yellowish tint....thanks so much,,, and go ahead,,, the great thing about this site is the world of inspiration you can draw from seeing the creativity of other customizers.... just imagine if we all got together to make a huge toy series.. that would be sick,,, some guys could do ideas, some could do design,,, some could do sculpting,, then paints,, and so on and so forth,,, I reckon we would produce a line of toys far superior to most major brand ones....

Hi Michael I think this one is much better! Actually if ya hadn't have posted him I would have forgot my question about glow in the dark paint from the other Cyborg Supes. Can ya tell me who makes the RC car brand glow in the dark paint?
Oh and I don't think its a good idea that I see your Dc figures as it gives me sooo many more ideas for the DCSH supes figures. But hey you've provided the inspiration!
Especially since I managed to pick a few of the 2 packs up for around $3.50 on clearance and when I run out then I'll work my way into the $7.00 single cards I intend to get!
So hope you don't mind I may steal your GL!
