Age of Apocalypse; Apocalypse

Made using a Dark Alliance Lucifer figure. The horns were removed and filled in with plumber's epoxy.
The hands came from the Resaurus Blanka figure, and the legs from the knee down to the ankle are from a Fist of the North Star figure. The rest is plumber's epoxy and the main armor is made from various
parts from Gundam kits with some plumber's epoxy thrown in, and the cape
was made by my wonderful girlfriend. the rest is paint and patience.

Carnage

Made from a Spiderman classics symbiote spidey figure with a head from the animated Doppleganger figure. I added various tubes and wires for some extra symbiote effect. The axe arm is just cardboard and plastic glued together in layers painted.

 

 

Juggernaut

Made from a dark alliance Creamator figure I removed the excess armor and straps
and filled in various holed with sculpey. I sanded down the etched in scars and
tattoos. The helmet is made from a little plastic vending machine capsule.

 

 

Mr. Sinister

I used a Colosus from the X-men boxed set with him nightcrawler and others. I got this from a friend for custom fodder so the knee and shoulder pads were already torn off when I got him so I needed to make new knee pads. I replaced his right hand so he could have an open hand. The cape is wings from a Future Bishop figure that had a weird wing pack with him. and then some paint. The glue on the knee pads wore off a bit as you can see in the pic but I have not had time to go back and fix it.

Human Torch

Just a quick head hands and feet switch between Human Torch and parachute Spidey with some small gaps filled in on the legs. I slaped on a new coat of
paint and that was it. The black lines never really did it for me, plus this way he looks more like his current comic version like Mr Fantastic.

 

Venom

I started making this a while back but just couldn't get it quite right on the face. I tried lots of versions wiht his tounge but finally decided to use the classic all teeth version. The body is from one of the planet of the symbiote symbiotes. I had this started long before Toybiz re-used it for their venom, but it wasn't till I saw theirs that I decided that I just had to finish.
