Clark Kent
Many moons ago I created a Clark custom. It was pretty weak, even for the time, and it sat on a dark corner of my shelf ever since. However, as I’ve recently made several citizens of Metropolis, I realized that old Clark would never do when standing next to his (read more...)
Mattel gave us 4 out of 5 members of the Justice Guild. Yeah, that’s just the class act that Mattel is. So, as usual, the customizers have to fill in the gaps. I used what has become the standard recipe for Catman. It’s a BTAS Batman with the glove scallops (read more...)
Captain Atom
Captain Atom was my first use of the fantastic AMAZO/Starman base that Mattel has provided for us. The project is a relatively simple one. For once, there were no sculptural details to remove or add to the body. For Cap’s head, I chose Waverider. Once the translucent hair is yanked (read more...)
Bruce Wayne (TNBA)
Bruce is the common recipe of the Hasbro new school Bruce Wayne head on a Hasbro new school Two-Face body. I used Kneadatite to even out the neckline, and smoothed the roughness of Two-Face’s left hand. Frankly, I usually find secret identity customs rather dull. This isn’t an exception. But (read more...)
Bruce Wayne (BTAS)
Bruce here was the first Bat-custom I ever made. Well, not this version, but repainting an old school Two-Face and slapping on a Bruce Wayne head. Back then, that was good enough. Not anymore. I took that old custom and put it under the Dremel, removing the coat and creating (read more...)
Blue Beetle
Sadly, Blue Beetle will never appear on Justice League Unlimited, or appear as a figure in the current line by Mattel due to rights issues. He can, however, appear in the JLU comic book. Go figure. Since that became public knowledge, a lot of excellent Blue Beetle customs have popped (read more...)
Black Condor
Black Condor is part of the Freedom Fighters, the Golden Age team I submitted as an entry to CustomCon 14. This interpretation of the team is based on Carlo Barberi’s and Larry Stucker’s art from the comic Justice League Unlimited #17. BC’s base body is Orion. The main portion of (read more...)
Black Canary
I am so very pleased that Mattel has seen fit to release a Black Canary figure. This is something we would have never seen under Hasbro’s rule. So first off, thank you Mattel. Thank you for making the fans happy. That being said, there is room for improvement. Poor Dinah’s (read more...)
Batwoman is one of those projects I’d been meaning to get to for a long time, but other things always took priority. After seeing Tyke’s Batwoman show up as his icon time and again, I finally took action. The body is a Mattel Hawkgirl. The lower arms were swapped with (read more...)
Batman (Holiday Knights)
This pair of figures had been on my to-do list for a long time. “Holiday Knights” was the first New School style episode to air back in 1997, and it made a big impression on me. This short but poignant scene was not something usually witnessed in a 22 minute (read more...)
