Site Update: July 25, The Return of Hollywood Objects
The custom figure train of 2022 keeps chugging along. This time it’s all about live-action characters. Alfred Pennyworth (2005) Alfred Pennyworth (2021) Aquaman (2018) Batman (2022) Bruce Wayne (2012) Bruce Wayne (2022) Catwoman (2022) Clark Kent (1978) Edward Nygma (1995) Harvey Dent (2008) James Gordon (2005) James Gordon (2022) John (read more...)
Alfred Pennyworth (2005)
Finding one of Michael Caine’s Alfred costumes in 1:10 scale is harder than it sounds. I never did find any of his exact suits (much less sweater ensembles). I ultimately settled on this TV Gotham Alfred body from Diamond Select. I don’t think I even repainted anything. It’s not exact, (read more...)
Alfred Pennyworth (Snyderverse)
I don’t think there’s ever been a poor choice in Alfred casting, on camera or voice actor. But amongst an elite group, Jeremy Iron’s Alfred stands out. Just the perfect blend of fatherly affection and snark.  As of this writing, he’s also the only on-camera Alfred whose costume color pallet (read more...)
Aquaman (2018)
Mattel’s Aquaman movie figures were not as bad as their usual standard. Sadly, I prefer the 1:10th scale, so those options are too small for my shelf. When I stumbled across this 1:10 Jason Momoa Aquaman head on eBay, I decided I could use it to make a passable placeholder (read more...)
Batman (2022)
McFarlane’s 2022 movie Batman figure is Pretty Darned Good, and yet there are still enough details that are slightly off or missing altogether that a small cottage industry has sprung up. Crafty customizers and 3D designers offer all kinds of “fixes” for sale online. I’m still waiting on some to (read more...)
Bruce Wayne (2012)
Can’t have an Alfred without a Bruce, right? This was another project that came about because of an eBay purchase, specifically the head. All I needed was a 1:10th scale body, which I found in Diamond Select’s TV Gotham Jim Gordon figure. The rest is paint. Created May 2022 (read more...)
Clark Kent (1978)
This piece features a Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent sculpt by Donmanart. I was able to purchase the file and print as needed. I attached the head to a Mcfarlane Fortnite Wildcard body. From there it was just paint. Now I need to figure out how to make a Margot (read more...)
Catwoman (2022)
We all know that the time necessary to develop and ultimately release action figures is lengthy, usually from 9 month to a year or more. And sometimes the figures that are released don’t quite match the movie, because the source material changed in that time. Happens all the time. It (read more...)
Bruce Wayne (2022)
This custom features another fine head sculpt and 3D print by One12Custom. All I had to do was paint it and find a body. Mcfarlane’s figures tend to be slightly larger than actual 1:10, and the 2022 movie stuff is a solid example of that. I had to find a (read more...)
Edward Nygma (1995)
I debated whether or not to share these photos, because the result is less than stellar. Ultimately, I decided this was a cautionary tale that ought to be told. I bought a 3D-printed head of mid-90s Jim Carrey, intended to use it for a Batman Forever Eddie Nygma. What I (read more...)
