Beast, Classic Avengers/ 90s X-Men Custom Action Figure

Custom #:33132  
Name:Beast, Classic Avengers/ 90s X-Men
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Date Added:September 27, 2011
Base Figure:XMC Cat Face Beast
Height:6.00 inches
A LOT of sanding and clipping off of extraneous parts and pieces went in to this guy. Then came the weeks of layers of sculpting being added to try to capture a semi realistic fur look, all done between working on other projects. I finished him off with a series of paint applications from the deepest dark blue to bright electric blue all from Vallejo Paints, finishing with an air brushing of final highlights over a light ink wash. Clear coated with a light Gloss varnish, Beast retains all of his original articulation and for one of the few times in my customizing life, captured the look I wanted ALMOST perfectly. I would like to revisit customizing him in the coming year to go for a more accurate 70s/ 80s Beast look, but after the work that this one was, honestly, I'm not sure that would ever happen.

really impressive, not one of my favorite characters, but you made an excellent custom, spot on.

Thanks! I really am happy with the way he turned out. I wish I'd made a mold of that head sculpt before I shipped him off, but oh well. Makes him even more of a one of a kind, right?

totally agreed and if you ever make another you will have better understanding to do it again.

I've honestly spent the last day or two plotting my way around fixing that head sculpt up even better next time to make it MORE accurate to the older look, rounding that hair out more, etc.

can't wait to see it, if I find my extra head of that beast would you be interested? I will try looking for it, I am 75% I have it, but will let you know.

it looks like a lot of work and it looks very very cool,perfect porportions for his avengers era and the face captures his jokster side that he had back then, great custom man!

I worked from 3 early 80s Avengers books to get the look and still I managed to make him look too much like the Jim Lee version, but I still liked him a lot.
