Banshee Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42890  
Name:Banshee
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Universe
Creator:Underground Customs  
Date Added:September 20, 2012
Base Figure:MU Iron Fist
Height:3.75 inches
In order to avoid paint rub I used a green MU Iron Fist body. The collar is epoxy sculpt, and the head is from a SW Anikin figure. The cape was the hard part. I cut the fabric, and ran the hot glue gun along the edge to avoid fraying. Banshee's cape is mounted along his costume from just above his knee, all the way to his wrist. Luckily my first plan worked, and I used the hot glue gun to adhere fabric tabs, I had added to my cape pattern, to the figure. Although the lines on the cape aren't as clean as they could have been on foam, the cape moves brilliantly, and this figure is actually a lot of fun to pose. Feedback on the design would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know how much you have worked with fabric since this custom, but you should check out Fraycheck...its a solution that prevents fraying and it works really good.

That is fantastic work, great choice of head. The only thing that could make it better is to find an Anakin with an open mouth...

Thanks for all the comments. I should mention, and I totally forgot, that I can't take credit for the head choice as I saw another customizer use it first. The rest of the recipe is original though. Got to give credit where credit is due, although I can't remember the name of the customizer now. Sorry.
