Lady Blackhawk (Bombshell)
Of all the DC characters that should have been part of the Bombshells designs, Lady Blackhawk is at the top of the list. Why wasn’t she? No idea. I guess DC figured that might have been a little too on the nose. Still, she should have been a member. My (read more...)
Poison Ivy (Bombshell)
The DC Bombshells comic had a unique problem. All of Ant Lucia’s wonderful designs gave the Bombshells fun new costumes to populate this alternate history world. But Poison Ivy’s design effectively featured her in her unmentionables. Obviously, that was a spot-on tribute to pin-up girls of the era. But for (read more...)
Supergirl (Bombshell)
Supergirl was one of the six Bombshells figures solicited by DC Collectibles and then cancelled. I was not prepared to take no for an answer. So I took matters into my own hands. I started with the torso and arms of Bombshells Batgirl. I did so because the bustier was (read more...)
Harley Quinn (Bombshell Circus)
Ant Lucia is the genius designer behind DC’s Bombshells. Without him, they wouldn’t exist. It’s a blending of two of my favorite things: retro pin-up art and DC! He designed some covers for the comic, including one in which Harley is in her traditional jester outfit, and Ivy is wearing (read more...)

Batgirl (Bombshell Vampire)
As far as customizing some Bombshell figures goes, Vampire Batgirl is one of the easier options. 90% of her is a repaint of the existing Batgirl figure. The head is where things get interesting. In an effort to really send a clear signal that this was indeed a vampire, I (read more...)
Catwoman (Bombshell)
What to do with a spare Bombshell Poison Ivy figure? Turn her into Catwoman, of course. The first challenge was the skirt. After several attempts, I found the best solution was a JLU Darkseid skirt. It was almost a perfect fit. It didn’t quite meet up in the back, so (read more...)
Rocketeer (Betty)
Cliff’s girlfriend Betty suited up as the Rocketeer may have been what started this current Bombshell batch of customs. I’ve seen lots of great fan art and cosplay of Betty in the jacket, but never a custom figure. When I realized that Bombshell Poison Ivy would make a great base (read more...)
Roxy Rocket (Bombshell)
Of the many Bombshell customizing possibilities, Roxy Rocket is probably the lowest hanging fruit. She’s essentially a head swap and a repaint. It doesn’t get much easier. Roxy is made using a Harley Quinn Bombshell body. The only physical change I effected was the removal of the cuffs on the (read more...)
Zatanna (Bombshell)
Oh, what might have been! Bombshell Zatanna was meant to be part of the third wave of Bombshell figures by DC Collectibles. Sadly, like so many other products solicited by the company in recent months, the whole wave was cancelled without explanation. So I took it upon myself to partially (read more...)
