Superman Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42061  
Name:Superman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:D.C. Universe
Creator:1987olds442  
Date Added:August 22, 2012
Base Figure:DCUC Superman & Aquaman
Height:6.50 inches
Here is another quick custom. I never really liked the head on the DCUC Superman something just seemed off about it.

The head is from blue camo suit Aquaman with the hair and eyebrows painted black with some light blue highlights. I also wanted bigger fist for Superman, so swapped the hands from a DCSH Superman. I also cut down the ankles some to allow enough room for the foot rocker to actually work.

It's amazing how much difference that head makes. I have always thought that the Aquaman head was one of the best sculpts to come out of DCUC. Anyhoo, the head and hand swap make it look much better! Great job!!

Sometimes it just the little things that can make a figure. I agree the Aquaman head-sculpt is one of the best from the DCUC line. Plus it can be used for a lot of different characters. I just wish it could have been just a little bit bigger.

Much better. Makes a huge difference, but I always think the head and hands give a figure its personality.
I love the blue highlights in the hair too, which for some reason I always associate with Superman.
I often have to cut away big sections of the feet to allow the rocker ankles to move, even on many MLs they are locked in place. Cheers on putting in the effort.

Thank you very much I'm the same way in associating the blue highlights with Superman.

I really enjoyed that show. I would love to see NECA or some other company make a line of figures for that series

I agree with HisDevineShadow--that head swap changes this figure for the better!

Actually with the lighter skin tone and darker hair than the regular version of Aquaman they work well together in a JLA display
