Wade Cole (Reaver) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:47580  
Name:Wade Cole (Reaver)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel
Creator:Gridagent  
Date Added:March 1, 2013
Base Figure:Lanard- "The Corps"
Height:3.75 inches
Inspired by Uncanny X-Men #281, I've always wanted to make this villainous band of cyborgs. As my first attempt at customizing I probably shouldn't have tackled the whole group at the same time, but I have enjoyed it.

I chose to go with Lanard's "The Corps" action figures for the base (Available at any WalMart/DollarGeneral). Sculpey for the helmet and forearms, using a small flat head screwdriver for details. I carved and added some wiring to the forearms to make him more "robotic" looking.

To give this guy his respirator, I knew I had to make the helmet smaller than in my first character. I was so happy with my scuplt, I cured it right away... later realizing his helmet was MUCH smaller then I intended. To "bulk" him up I sculpted the backpack, which the group often carries anyway. ;-)

Complete repaint and dry brush technique using Hobby Lobby water-based paints. Then clear coat Matte-finish spray paint to protect and give it a more "new figure look". Wiring from the inside of a phone cord to finish.

I hope you enjoy! Thank you!

nice job on all 3 of these. you were able to make great customs out of nothing. allot of people on here take already gorgeous 6 inch figures and put some different eyes on em and think they've accomplished something. great work.

that's awesome, you actually managed to make a corps figure look cool enough to go into an MU display, and it's with a team of villains(always need more villains, they are under-represented in figures compared to heroes)that is a must for any neo-classic x-men fans, great job!
