Smythe is a character I like a whole lot. It started when I was a kid and watched the Spider-Man cartoon, where he appeared in very many episodes.
So when I read through all Spider-Man comics I was greatly anticipating the entrance of Alistair Smythe, and was surprised and dissapointed that he was so different. He was a fat disgusting computer geek! Then he lost some weight, but he was still disgusting. I would asume it was because of his popularity on the cartoon that they revamped him, making him into the Ultimate Spider-Slayer, which is the version this custom is based on.

I used a ML Angel as base and added ball joints on top of the shoulders for those weird things he's got there.
I used an Vision head, glued on a pair of ears and sculpted hair. The ponytail took a really long time to make, because I could only do a little at a time. It wasn't very fun.
I for his toes, I gave him some claws from an ugly plastic dinosaur, and the blade-things on his legs and arms, I cut out pieces of plastic.
Oh and I almost forgot the tentacle-blade-things on his shoulders. I used plastic pieces, trimmed them down, dremeled a hole in each and then sculpted the rest of them, so they are now poseable.

When I painted the figure, I used a Metallic Aliminium paint as a base for the legs and then put on a blue wash, and I was very happy at the result, it looks great in my opinion!

I think this figure came out beautiful, because of the colors and all the weird things coming out of his body.
It took a whole lot of work, so I hope you guys think it's cool too!

Well I don't have much myself... just happened to have that skateboard from a pack of random toys I got for my daughter at Goodwill. I feel for your predicament, for I am in the same boat.
Unknown User - Friday, August 24, 2007
Really Nice!! I That must been hard to sculpt the hair!!! Truly a great custom looks just like he step out of a comic book!!
evanjones1 - Friday, August 24, 2007
Yes, I do need parts!
Punstarr - Friday, August 24, 2007
I've not heard you say you needed parts until today, evan.
evanjones1 - Friday, August 24, 2007
Why does no-one send me parts!?
I've got nothing to work with!
Unknown User - Friday, August 24, 2007
really cool work again Wes
but I always wished that smythe was all in black so those things on his shoulders looked more "spidery" - rather than the broken dildos they look like
but your spidey villain customs are really great

Yes you are correct. So if it does look like Rocket Racer's board, we'll make a deal!
Punstarr - Friday, August 24, 2007
Nope, his board has wheels. Check it.
LWes - Friday, August 24, 2007
I would take you up on that, however I think his board is some kind of hover board, which I don't think would be too hard to make, as it probably doesn't have any wheels. I'll have to check some pictures some day.
Punstarr - Friday, August 24, 2007
Ironically I have a skateboard that looks perfect for ML scale if you want it for the RR custom.
LWes - Friday, August 24, 2007
Yeah, sorry I never answered that huh? I do have Rocket Racer on my radar absolutly. I want to make Spidey's allies too, and yes Rocket Racer did start out as a thief. I just haven't come up with any parts to use yet.
I'm still working on several figures - I'll write 'em down in my WIP thread. I have almost 40 Spider-Man characters on my list, whichof 14 I have the recipies worked out.
Punstarr - Friday, August 24, 2007
Hey, Wes I was serious about that Rocket Racer fig.
Does he count as a villain? I'm thinking he was a villain at some point?
guido_vcgga - Friday, August 24, 2007
*jaw drops* ... I've got nothing to say. I'm speechless.
LWes - Friday, August 24, 2007
Yeah I''m working on Kaine and I have Scrier planned out too! Traveller is also coming along fine
guido_vcgga - Friday, August 24, 2007
Cool! Man, are we doing the same reading list? It seems like everytime I see one of your Spidey customs, I just finished reading the same ish you show pics of. If I see a Scrier or a Kaine pop up, then I`ll know something`s up!

Oh you've done it again Magoo! Excellent work buddy!
LWes - Thursday, August 23, 2007
Sounds like a cool plan evan!
DDA, I love mullets on Marvel characters, but it's harder to sculpt. I'd love to make a Venom with the head of Eddie Brock, complete with his awesome '90s mullet, at some point.
evanjones1 - Wednesday, August 22, 2007
This is BEAUTIFUL!
I've been planning one with a removeable wheelchair.
P.S The Tombstone was NOT the hard project.
DDA - Wednesday, August 22, 2007
I want one!! and I'm glad you didn't give him his mullet the tied back hair looks great, as does the whole figure *two thumbs up*
