Jinx (Midnight Sons & Friends) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:1555
Name:Jinx
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Midnight Sons & Friends
Creator:LWes  
Date Added:January 13, 2007
Base Figure:Legendary Riders Logan
Height:5.50 inches
Jinx was the grandson of Louise Hastings from the Darkhold Redeemers, and when his mother died, he came and joined the group and later became the apprentice of Modred the Mystic.
I used Civilian Logan's body and Prof X's head. I just sculpted the hair and changed his nose a bit so it wouldn't look too much like Professor X.
The paint is kind of sloppy, I know, as I suck at painting.
I would have wanted him to wear a baseball cap, but I didn't know how to make one that would look good.

***UPDATE OCTOBER 2007***
I wasn't completley satisfied with my Jinx custom. I liked the recipe and all, but the execution was pretty bland to say the least.
So I removed most of the original paint, modified his torso some, sculpted a cap and then repainted the figure.
First I didn't know if it was any better than the original version, but when I looked at the old picture of it, I was very satisfied, I think I succeeded with what I tried to do.

Oh yeah, I forgot to write about it in the description, it's a great method I read about online and tried out. What you do is take a piece of plastic (like from a plastic bag or something) and put it over the head (or whatever part) and then you can sculpt over it and then when it's cured, it's removable!
I used Apoxie Sculpt.
And I took a piece of string to tie around the figure's neck, around the plastic, so that the plastic was tight and wouldn't move when I put sculpt on it and smoothed it out.
You should test it, I was really pleased with the outcome.

what really amazes me about this is the flawless cap you made AND you made it removable
Awesome man - did you use a base for the cap? or did you just sculpt it onto the actual head and prise it off once it was almost set?
was it aves sculpt you used for the hat or another medium?

Tony: I was refering to my original version of the figure when I thought it was crappy, I think it's really nice now.

Never saw this one the first time round - but seeing it for the first time I will say
Very nice work - thats a great cap you sculpted mate - lovely sculpting and paintwork on the body - especially the folds in the clothing
Simply great - even for a "bland" figure as you say
