Richard Mark's Customs

 

Richard can be contacted at [email protected]

 

 
The custom Batman is a Marvel Legends Ultimate Captain America. I used a dremel on the stars and ears. I used Liquitex acrylic modeling paste for the bat ears, nose area and talons. This stuff dries very hard and can be carved and sanded. I use Tamiya acrylic paints. The cape is from some obscure Batman figure and the emblem is made from electrical tape for texture.
 


The Alan Scott Green Lantern is a repaint of a 9" Hasbro DC Super Heroes Hal Jordan Green Lantern. The pants and belt are from a 9" Hasbro DC Super Heroes Green Arrow, the cape is from a Toy Biz Famous Covers 9" Magneto and the shirt is custom made by an ebay guy named Tim. I used Tamiya acrylic paints.


The first custom Hal Jordan Green Lantern is a repaint of a Hasbro JLA Impulse figure with a Parallax head. I used Tamiya acrylic paints.


The next Hal Jordan Green Lantern is a repaint of a Marvel Legends Mr. Fantastic. I used Tamiya acrylic paints.


The first custom Joker is a repaint of a Clive Barker Tom Requiem figure from McFarlane toys. The figure was originally bald and had rings pierced on his torso. I plucked out the rings so it looks like bullet holes now. The hair I made using Liquitex acrylic modeling paste. I did not carve or sand the hair, I just shaped it. This stuff dries very hard and can be carved and sanded. I use Tamiya acrylic paints.


The 12" Joker figure is made from a GI Joe body and a head from a figure I found at a thrift store. I don't know what it is. The body was useless but the head looked just like Joker when I painted it. The clothes was the biggest pain. They are not a perfect fit. Barbie pants are slit in the behind but it is covered with the jacket. The shirt is also Barbie from a bowling outfit which is slit in the back and has no sleeves. The Jacket is from a Spy Fox stuffed toy. I used spray purple dye which I can't find anymore. The big gun is from a Legends of the Dark Knight Joker and the poison vile is from a 9" Star Trek Bele figure (Frank Gorshin half black half white figure).


The custom Riddler is made from a 9" Star Trek Bele figure (Frank Gorshin half black half white figure). He is painted with Tamiya acrylic paint. The outfit is the figure original light gray outfit dyed green with a spray dye I can't find anymore. The question mark is made from self adhesive felt. The little question mark card is of unknown origin.

This is Sheriff Woody from Pixar's Toy Story. It is made from a vintage MARX Johnny West body and a MARX Mike Hazard head. I used Mike Hazard because he is smiling unlike the Johnny West head. The vest and empty gun belt is vintage Johnny West. The bandanna is GI Joe and the hat is from a McDonald's or Burger King Sheriff Woody toy. The hands are from some GI Joe look-alike company (you see this at KB toys all the time). I used Tamiya acrylic paints.
