My friends introduced me to customizing action figure hobby. It was frustating at first until I learned some tips from the internet. This is my first successful custom figure: Deadpool. I always wanted to have his 6" scale figure but can't find one with a reasonable price.
I made it using:
-Toybiz Marvel Legends Captain Marvel(base body)
-Toybiz Marvel Legends Face off Red skull (belt)
-Marvel toy's LCBH STAR (hands)
-Toybiz X-men Stealth Cyclops (accessories)
-Kakugo no Susume trading figure(swords)
- some cheap military toys (g36k rifle)
My second successful custom figure: Hurricane Polymar. For those who's not familiar with polymar he's a character from 70's anime series produced by Tatsunoko Productions the same studio who made Gatchaman (G-Force)& Speed Racer. Polymar also appeared in the Wii video game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars.
I made it from Toybiz Marvel Legends#10: Angel
Helmet created using epoxy putty & clear plastic folder.
A friend who decided to gave up collecting action figures gave me some of his stuffs. Most of them are in very bad condition. One of the worst was a severely damaged ultraman action figure. At first I wanted to restore it to it's normal condition but I just didn't know how to work on the fabric material. So I decided to replace its body with ML Human torch, some putty & citadel color paint
My second Deadpool custom (What can I say? I was obssesed with him) After the first one I want to make another with more muscular & tougher look.
-ToyBiz ML Black Panther (Head & Body)
-ToyBiz ML Face-Off Daredevil (Limbs)
-ToyBiz ML Ultimate Capt. America's belt
-ToyBiz Xmen cyclops & wolverine (weapons & accessories)
-Kakugo no Susume trading figure(sword)
That's some great work you've done! I've seen tons of good Deadpool customs (many by Jin Saotome), and yours look pretty darned decent. That Ultra Seven is just beautifully done, and that Polimar is pretty darned inventive! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!
