Darkseid (Prototype)
Some time ago, the prototype Darkseid figure made its way to eBay. Fortunately for us customizers, this prototype then became a guest of Stew, and now we all have access to its parts. I think its fair to say most of us agree the prototype is far superior to the (read more...)
Lex Luthor (Prototype)
Another fine prototype casting brought to you by Stew! I simply painted him to match his show colors. The jury is still out as to whether or not this version is more screen accurate than the mass produced one. I suspect the true answer lies somewhere in between. Though I (read more...)
Lex Luthor (Presidential Candidate)
Not much to see here. It’s simply a Mattel Lex Luthor repainted in his alternate suit, most often seen in JLU during his presidential campaign. Clean and simple. Created April 2013 (read more...)
By now most collectors of Timm-verse figures know Mattel has produced sculpts and molds for a handful of figures that will likely never see the light of day. Thanks to friendly collectors that paid top dollar for prototypes on eBay, Stew has made many of the parts in question available as (read more...)
Weather Wizard
Weather Wizard is another one of those not-to-difficult customs that I’ve been meaning to make for ages, and am only now getting around to. His base is Mattel’s Two-Face. The slightly smaller scale means he fits in well with his Secret Society cronies. Magic Sculpt was added to fill in (read more...)
Volcana (STAS)
Many long time readers are familiar with my “curse”: I customize a character, and then an official release is announced. A few years ago I made my first JLU Black Canary. A few months later Mattel’s version was in my hands. (Though it needed to be fixed, in and of (read more...)
Volcana (Only a Dream)
Not much to see here, folks. Just a repainted face. Seems Mattel’s cost-cutting efforts include dropping basic features like EYEBROWS. (And properly painted eyes and lips.) I didn’t want to paint the whole figure, so I masked off the body and sprayed the head and hair with Dullcote. This acted (read more...)
Ventriloquist & Scarface (TNBA)
Step by step, figure by figure, I get closer to filling out the ranks of both the old and new school villains. These two were tough ones that eluded me for years. I made several attempts over the years, but I could always tell early in the process the final (read more...)
Ventriloquist & Scarface (BTAS)
With Hasbro in its death throes regarding the Bats license, all kinds of interesting things are making their way into the world. The most recent is the fan favorite Ventriloquist and Scarface. Scarface and Venty’s torso are excellent old school sculpts. The paint scheme’s are random though. The only truly (read more...)
I always thought that Ultra-Humanite was one of the best sculpts Mattel created for the JL line. Except for his height! It’s a terrible shame that a basic characteristic of a figure can be altered to meet the needs of the packaging. I finally got sick of seeing a short (read more...)
