Storm (Marvel NOW!) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:61746  
Name:Storm (Marvel NOW!)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:MikeMarvel  
Date Added:May 21, 2014
Base Figure:Blackcat
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:24.00 hours
I've been wanting to do this one for so long but I was waiting for the right parts to come along. The Blackcat base is just so perfect for Storm though some substantial modding was necessary. The head I believe is a Moonstone head from castingcave. The other obstacle to tackle was the mohawk. I don't know how others do theirs and it seems like alot of people like to keep their techniques to themselves which is cool, but the way I see it, the techniques don't mean jack if your talent can't back it up!

I used a piece of cardboard and drew the head's profile. Then I drew a general shape and size to the mohawk that I wanted. Once I was satisfied with that I used ProCreate (the stuff chaz_xxi uses for all his killer works)and sculpted the hawk right on the cardboard. Once that side cured, I cut out the shape from the cardboard, flipped it over and sculpted the other side. Simple as that. Much easier than I thought it would be. Maybe I'll do a tutorial if anyone's interested...

Love this - the detail on the hair and eyes is beautiful!

Thanks dude. Not to toot my own horn but the eyes on this one are the best I've ever done! I tried something new and used an extra small artists pen to do the black line work.

I had just started a Storm in this look when Hasbro announced theirs, so I scrapped it; but this thing is AWESOME. That paint job on the costume is just perfect.

I'm glad I finished mine before I saw the Hasbro fig. BUT I'm sure yours would have been awesome. Love your work dude.

MikeMarvel - Monday, May 26, 2014

I have to admit I am just a sucker for a mohawk sporting Storm. This is a cool version of her done very well.

Hey,hey enough of that talk Mike! They rest of us still want the new releases. But yours does look better. Excellent work on the Mohawk.

Great work. Storm looks great! Hasbro is releasing Storm in this outfit next month in the Jubilee wave.
MikeMarvel - Thursday, May 22, 2014
Yeah funnily enough I saw that just a few days ago as I was wrapping this one up! But I think mine looks better anyway, tho unfortunately I may have to pick her up for the Jubilee parts! And who knows maybe Hasbro will cancel theirs...they have a habit of doing that...
