Texas Twister Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:44392  
Name:Texas Twister
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:tommyx  
Date Added:November 16, 2012
Base Figure:Mr. Fantastic
Height:6.50 inches
After Drew Daniels gained his tornado-like power, he tried out for the Frightful Four. He turned them down when they wouldn't pay him! After joining a short-lived SHIELD super-team, he then formed the Southwestern-based team the Rangers.
Once I got a spare Dum Dum Dugan, I knew I wanted to use the face for TT. The lower body and gloves are from Mr. Fantastic, and Luke Cage provided the arms and torso. I had a couple of ideas for the Stetson, but when I stumbled across this one on a mini-manga bust, I knew I had the right one. Costume details made from rubber and craft store beads. Making the chin cord was a major pain! The tornado effect was from an Invisible Woman accessory.
Thanks for looking, and comments are always welcome.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. I forgot to mention how hard it was creating the front hairline. Crappy glue wouldn't stick and the hair kept slipping down! Eventually it worked. Also, originally I had dry-brushed the blue parts of the costume, but it ended up looking dirty, so I put a stronger coat of paint on. Really brightened the figure up.
