Skullbuster (Reaver) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:47581  
Name:Skullbuster (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). Some sanding and sculpey for the face. Not sure how to "do arm lines" on a character this size, I built up the confidence and got to work on his arm and leg using a dremel tool. Though originally intending to make the lines smaller, I really am pleased with the results.
Dremel... awesome device BTW. Don't know how long it would have taken me to cut these with an exacto knife. :-P

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".

I hope you enjoy! Thank you!

Still working on Pierce... And Deathstrike might be a little tricky, since Lanard didn't make any female figures. (Any ideas would be appreciated)
But I'm seeing this group the whole way through. Thanks for your support!!! :-D
