Magneto (Jim Lee Style) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:62135  
Name:Magneto (Jim Lee Style)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:MikeMarvel  
Date Added:June 3, 2014
Base Figure:Hyperion
Height:7.00 inches
Completion Time:12.00 hours
So I went with a Hyperion base on this one primarily because I wanted to use the head and the Marvel Select cape, but they are both too big for the smaller figures. Also because I wanted a big imposing bad ass looking Magneto. I did a black base coat and dry brushed on the red so his definition would really stand out. Used ML Magneto forearms and than used rubber band for his boots. I'm more of a fan of a smaller, less ripped version of Mags but this one came out really good anyway.

I also wanted to experiment with ProCreate for his 'mane of manliness', as a fellow customizer would say. This stuff is just great for hair and it cures to a somewhat flexible consistancy with the right mixture of parts. I highly recommend you try it out!

The main focus after that was getting a super detailed paint job on the face. I've been using an artist's pen for the eye outlines and its really made the eyes much easier to do. I feel getting the eyes to look right can really make or break a great custom so I make it a priority and I probably spend the most time on them.

Anyway I hope you guys like it. This guy's been done to death I know but I wanted my own for my Jim Lee style X-Men collection!

BTW, just got a new camera Nikon camera so it was a somewhat long photo shoot but I hope you guys like the shots as well.

This Magneto is sweet! Paint job is great and I'm a fan of steroided action figures so this guy is bad@ss!

Great cape work, it gives it one hell of a sting. Good idea about artist pen for eyes, actually painters paint markers have a new tiny detail paint pen, usually wouldn't use painters aside from quick mockup painting but these new ones are perfect size

Thanks for the compliments and the tip. I'll try that one out next time. The one I'm using sometimes doesn't like to draw on anything but flat surfaces.

Always been a fan of Jim Lee's run on X-men. This is a great custom of his style.

This is awesome on so many levels my brain is having a conniption just trying to process it all. Well done!
P.S.: Magneto can never be done "to death". The more the merrier, I say.

Amazing! Just as he should be! Curious...does his helmet fit well?
MikeMarvel - Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Helmet doesn't fit at all lol. I would have had to make a separate head but my intention with this guy was to just have a killer unhelmeted head anyway. Thanks for the comment!
humanoid - Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Fantastic work nonetheless.
