Here's the Vulture! Another addition to the legendary Giusti collection of custom figures, this version of the Vulture was based on his classic look, as well as his look in the Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions video game.
The customer and I decided we wanted the Vulture to look menacing, instead of an old man flying around in his PJ's. The Vulture never really has any weapons either, the 'pick Spidey up and drop him' method of attack was getting really old, so we decided some throwing knives and keeping the 'toe spikes' from the X-23 figure was in order.
The X-23 body was modified to look like a male body. The base was great because there was no real muscle tone, and would work without making Vulture look too bulky. I added the arms from a DCUC Deadman (mostly because liked the hands..), and wings from an XMC Bird of Prey Angel.
I also sculpted the chest area, the feathers around the shoulders, and the feathery 'mane' around Vulture's neck.
Lastly, I installed ball joints in either wrist, drilled holes in the arms so you can interchange the Deadman hands AND the two Lady Deathstrike hands. I added belts to those, to make them blend in with the belts on the arms and hide the ball joints a bit, wrapped it in some traditional Vulture colors, and Adrian Toomes was ready to take on Spider-Man!
Thanks for looking. Make sure you check out my customs page on Facebook at the link below!
