Luminus Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:40670  
Name:Luminus
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Creator:RMK  
Date Added:July 8, 2012
Base Figure:DC Universe Superman
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:40.00 hours
Made from DCU Superman with forearms and feet from DCU Dr. Midnite and a cape from another DCU figure (dunno the name). I thought this would be a simple custom, but finding the best way to do the cape was a headache, as his cape is supposed to flow from the chest piece contour. I settled with a workable cape and used Apoxie Sculpt to try to make the cape flow into his cowl. (But it broak later on, ugh). Also, I can't believe how many coats of white paint he needed.

A tip for those of you who need a lot of white for a custom: Start with Games Workshop white spraypaint, then use their white scar paint. I started out using Testors flat white but that just took forever and made the figure feel chalky. Any other spraypaint makes all soft plastic sticky!

Luminus is an original character from a story I'm writing entitled "Seraph". I'm doing my entire cast in DCU style.

Great custom, nice work with the white paint. It's a great motivator to see a personal creation in toy form as you write / draw.
