This particular custom was really a “side” project, meaning it was made while other figures sat curing or drying. It was really more of an after thought. I never liked Hasbro’s attempt at the character, but I never liked the character enough to actually do anything about it. However, one (read more...)
Jack Napier
Granted, I’m partial to the idea that Joker was an out-of-work comedian rather than a gangster before his acid swim (as in “The Killing Joke”), but I really enjoy the few images we’ve scene of Joker as Jack in the animated style. Obviously, the base is a modified Machine Gun (read more...)
Paul Dini
One of the driving reasons behind the Arkham Asylum project was the excuse to make some of Batman’s rogues gallery in prison attire. (Like I really needed an excuse.) Astute viewers know that much of the creative staff often makes cameos in their animated programs. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm (read more...)
Like so many other characters, Parasite long eluded me in my effort to get him “just right.” And like other recent efforts, I’m glad I waited. Two of my favorite versions of this custom are Mike Danza’s and Doubledealer’s. I started in on both their recipes, but for various reasons (read more...)
Parademon is a project that goes way back. I’ve had plans of some sort since the airing of Superman: the Animated Series. At the time, I had planned on using Hasbro’s bent-knee Batman figure as a base. Some time ago, extraordinary customizer Airmax created a great Parademon, upping the ante (read more...)
Mxyzptlk! (Pronounced “Mix-Yes-Spit-Lick.”) Long have you eluded me! At long last, you exist in three dimensional form on my shelf. And the world was happy. Mxy is my first concentrated foray into original sculpts. Except for his hat that he stole from a Riddler figure, he is 100% Super Sculpey. (read more...)
Yet another obscure villain I can barely name, much less describe his MO. Stew crafted the head, torso and arms. I added the legs and cape. A little paint and clean up and the Legion of Losers Doom is expanded! If you’re looking for him in an episode of JLU, (read more...)
Inque (Human Form)
This Inque custom was part of Scott Rogers’ Hawkgirl Challenge in CustomCon 14. Multiple participants submitted figures made from Hawkgirl bases, showing what a wonderfully versatile base Hawkgirl is. Sculpting-wise, I started by removing and smoothing over the details on Hawkgirl. Inque’s head is a Justice Lord Wonder Woman, with (read more...)
Mr. Freeze’s Ice Maidens
I’ve seen a number of Ice Maidens made before, but none ever looked quite right to me. I wanted to make every effort to get all the details right on my set. The base figure is a Hasbro Supergirl. As I have done numerous times before, I removed her legs (read more...)
Hellhound is another Stew kit, consisting of the head, arms, and legs. I provided the standard medium male torso, the jacket, and the collar. A little clean up, some paint, and BAM he’s on the shelf. Created October 2012 (read more...)
