Ubu (TNBA)
Ubu is part of my “lost wave” of figures. Like the others in this wave, he was fully sculpted almost two years before he was painted. New School Ubu is yet another variation on the Bane recipe. His Torso is the Batman beyond Happy figure, while the legs are a (read more...)
Ubu (BTAS)
Ubu is part of my “lost wave” of figures. Like the others in this wave, he was fully sculpted almost two years before he was painted. Old School Ubu is another variation on my Superman recipe. The torso and arms a from a Hasbro Superman, while the legs are Racer (read more...)
Two-Face (Gangster)
This easy figure is a simple repaint of a Bruce Wayne II with a head swap. Originally seen in part II of the “Two-Face” origin episode, I decided he’d look better with an updated design. Created Summer 1999 (read more...)
Two-Face (Comic)
I sat down to repaint the recent Mattel Two-Face figure using his proper colors, and at the last minute decided to add a little variety. Instead of the normal blue-grey skin tone, I chose to paint him the purple color scheme as seen in the most recent run of animated (read more...)
Two-Face (BTAS)
The original Hasbro old school Two-face has always bothered me. As custom fodder he’s one of the most useful pieces made, but never served the intended purpose well. After so many years, it was high time I corrected this problem. I removed the coat and created a new one with (read more...)
Toyman (STAS)
Have you seen Mike Danza’s customs? If not, stop reading this page and click here. The man is one of the very best animated style customizers active today! Plus, he’s a really swell guy. One day Mike happened to mention he had started sculpting a Toyman head from scratch, but (read more...)
Toyman (Legion of Doom)
Mattel finally gets around to designing a decent Toyman and then *poof!* “We were only kidding!” As of this writing, Mattel says Toyman may not get produced unless enough people buy enough JSA three-packs to fund another yacht for their CEO. Prospects for a mass-produced Toyman remain grim. Thanks to (read more...)
Thinker
The Thinker’s noggin was originally crafted by the talented Great White. (I swear the guy has more hours in the day than the rest of us do.) Stew made a few modifications, and then offered it as a casting in his store. I applied the head to a standard JLU (read more...)
Thanagarian Soldiers
Mattel’s recent Thanagarian 6-pack shows what good Mattel can do when it really wants to. It features some nice new parts and characters. However, the set gives us four Thanagarian officers but no soldiers. I chose to enhance my shelves with a few extra hawk grunts to fill out the (read more...)
Talia al Ghul (TNBA)
A new school Talia was a relatively easy project, made from the Hasbro Talia. Most of the details were dremeled away, and the peek-a-boo curl was corrected. The club-hopping boots were replaced with the more subtle heels of the movie Batgirl figure. Kneadatite squared out the shoulders a bit, and (read more...)
