Firefly (JLU)
Stew worked up most of the head and torso, while I concentrated on the rest. The head and backpack are made from Mattel’s parts, though the backpack was modified to fit the straps, and the head now features the “button” in the left side that Mattel forgot. Stew extended the (read more...)
Fastball’s noggin was originally crafted by the talented 37Customs. I provided the standard JLU medium male body, adding the cuffs, armor, and catching mitt with Magic Sculpt. The belt is vinyl. Another obscure Legion member added to my shelf. Thanks, 37Customs! Created October 2012 (read more...)
Mr. Freeze (Comic)
I recently partook in an online customs exhibition. The inaugural event featured Mr. Freeze, meaning the participants were asked to submit a version of the character. For my submission to the exhibition, I chose Freeze as he appeared in the animated style comics. To my knowledge, he wore two, maybe (read more...)
General Eiling
This project is built entirely around Glassman’s fantastic General Eiling head sculpt. Glass man is just chock full of talent, and I am very pleased he shares his efforts with us mere mortals. While Glassman and Tyke opted for Eiling’s blue uniform, I chose the green. (Don’t ask me the (read more...)
A couple of years ago, a fellow called the Guff entered the customizing scene, and he has done nothing but amazing stuff since! He not only creates great customs, but crafts some fine original and modified sculpts, and then makes them available to others via casting. The Guff has a (read more...)
Desaad is the result of what turned out to be something a joint project between Quartermain and Stew. Quartermain has really been knocking out some great original sculpts recently, and Desaad is among those. Stew has been mastering the arts of molding and casting, and generously providing needed parts to (read more...)
Joker’s Henchmen
Lar and Cur use Happy’s torso and arms. As with all the characters that use this recipe, I had to sand down all the chest details and reconstruct them with plumber’s epoxy and Kneadatite. The legs are from a Detective Bats, using Kneadatite to beef them up a bit. Cur’s (read more...)
Clock King
Mattel recently released the firsst-ever figure of Clock King. While I’m not crazy about the continued use of the inaccurate suit sculpt, I’m pleased to have a Clock King at all. The head sculpt is nice, if a bit small. And despite the hem of the suit jacket, the figure (read more...)
Clayface (TNBA)
For those of us who make animated-style custom figures, Clayface is far and away one of the toughest to pull off. For one thing, there isn’t much in the way of base figures to work from, and starting from scratch is daunting at best. Furthermore, his design is relatively streamlined (read more...)
Clayface (Bat-Escape)
I’d always wanted to make a Clayface that was in some way changing shape. I toyed with this idea for years. Then I saw Charlie Jackam’s great Transforming Clayface. It looked great, and proved the idea could work. One of my favorite images comes from the episode “Mudslide,” where Batman (read more...)
