Man of Steel Superman Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:51167  
Name:Man of Steel Superman
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Superman
Creator:BobaFett77  
Date Added:June 27, 2013
Base Figure:Man of Steel Superman with moto
Height:3.75 inches
Completion Time:3.00 hours
Articulation:11 points
I bought this figure tomorrow, and started working on him as soon as I get home. Repainted face, added a fully cloth cape, repainted the logo, and my major improvement : for the first time ever I added a ball-joint articulation somewhere there was no articulation at all! So I made ball-jointed knees, because that was the only huge articulation that was missing! And I think it works pretty well! And I made swivel wrist too, thanks to some tutorials on this site.
Hope you guys enjoy!

Great job dude especially on this scale

Thank you! Yeah it's more difficult to work on 3.75" figures, but I really don't know why but I love this scale better than the 6". But I also have some 6" figures, details on these are great most of time!

Where did you get the ball joint? Looks nice.

General Grievous from Stars Wars The Clone Wars action figures line.
Thanks!!

Really good work, how did you add the ball joints? However, I think you bought the figure "yesterday" and not "tomorrow" - unless you're a time-travelling customizer! I kid; excellent stuff.

Oh sorry, lol. I'm french, sometimes I mix up words^^. Yeah I meant yesterday.
For the articulation, I cut the figure exactly at the knees. Then I just hollow holes, and put the elbow articulations of a Star Wars Clone Wars General Grievous. Once you do that you just need to sculpt over the articulation to match the shin (it's just about millimeters), paint it and that's all.
Actually some better Sup' can be done here using this technique : something I couldn't do because I don't have the appropriate tools, is to hollow a big hole under the thighs just before making holes to put the articulation peg. So the articulation can be more hidden.
Oh and by the way, thanks to the articulation, the figure is completely in scale with MU line! (Mattel's DC 3.75" figures are always smaller than Marvel figures, I don't know why, even if they pretend together to be 3.75" figure).
Thanks for the feedback!!

No worries mon ami, the spliced-in joints look very good! You're very welcome for the feedback and look forward to seeing more of your custom action figure work!

The BEST 3.75 inch Cavill figure I've seen yet! The custom articulation did a lot for this figure!
