...is made from a
Toy Biz Silver Surfer. Trunks were made from cut vinyl. Magic Sculp was
used to make toes, ears, nipples, and to make the face look more like Dr.
Manhattan. Surgery was done to the shoulders to make the arms facing to the
front instead of to the side. Also, leg surgery was performed so that he
does not stand with his legs ridiculously wide apart.
...was a DCD Crime Syndicate Owl Man in a previous life. After cutting down
the original figure's headpiece, I used Magic Sculp to alter it into what
you see here. Nite Owl's left fist comes from the original DCD Aquaman,
because I wanted him to have one closed fist instead of two open hands in
weird positions. Magic Sculp was also used for the goggles, belt pockets, and
to make the boot and glove cuffs. Vinyl was used to provide the belt
buckle, collar, cape and the head's back piece. This was done after a few
attempts and much logistical work. The details on the cape and head were
done with a fine-tipped permanent marker and a paint pen.
...uses a DC Direct
Phantom Stranger base. The head came from the Shocker on Peter Parker
Spider-Man's base. It was then cut down and had the Phantom Stranger's hat
added. A new neck had to be sculpted from Magic Sculp to retain
articulation. The scarf was made from Magic Sculp. The trench coat was
made from a combination of cut vinyl and Magic Sculp.
...used to be a DC Direct Vandal Savage. MagicSculp was added
to bulk up and alter wherever was needed. The red and white sleeve is vinyl, the
shoulder pad was Pippin's hood, cut and adorned with lots of Magic Sculp. The
cigar came from the end of a toothpick. The pistols were Punisher's (and yes,
they do come out of the holsters). The machine gun is Tulip (from Preacher)'s
uzi with a silencer from a GIJoe weapon added. The grenades came from an old
TMNT Ace Duck. The billy club was once Judge Dredd's. The knife and knife
holster came from a Playmates Savage Dragon.
...was once a DC Direct Phantom Lady. I re-sculpted her hair
some. The outer garment is transparent yellow vinyl (the same vinyl that I've
been using on all these, oddly enough). The earrings, choker, and waist and arm
bands are all MagicSculp. Her ears were donated by a Marvel Legends Punisher,
and then touched up with MagicSculp. The skull on her choker came from an
accessory to a Primal Rage figure I had from an old abandoned custom.
...His head and cape came from the same DCD Phantom Stranger
that I used for Rorschach's body. Adrians' body came from a DCD The Shade figure
that I didn't want anymore. I had to, once again, shape and bulk up the arms a
bit. The tunic, belt, and neck piece are vinyl. Also, the top of his head had to
be filled in (where the attachment for the hat used to be) with MagicSculp.
...was a non-poseable tiger I got at the local "educational"
toy store. I added the long ears (made from Magic Sculp and pieces of the "metal
bar" that the original 1991 Toy Biz Hulk came with), the tufts of hair on the
side of her head (MagicSculp), and the whiskers (fishing line).
