Custom Action Figures

Post  The Fourth Doctor on Tue 22 Jul 2014, 14:28

Anyone else here make custom figures of more unusual characters from TV and film to add to their collections. I make Doctor Who figure customs. Made some in the past and have posted images in various places before, but haven't made any for a long time. Hope to make a custom of myself in 5 inch scale for a bit of a laugh soon.

Custom Joker repaint 6 inch scale:







I also made a cane for him as I bought the figure loose with no accessories.



This was originally a tuxedo Joker from teh DC Universe Classics line that came with Harley Quinn. I believe from a Harley Quinn story. This is the original:



The colours are based off the single release of the Joker from the same line. I couldn't get that Joker cheaply, so set about customising the tuxedo version. Turned out nicely if a little on the acrylicy/sticky/tacky side.

Thanks. I'd love to see them. What are you thinking of customising? When you have photos, post them here.

Probably a repaint on the Marvel Legends Infinite Series Electro figure or a modification to The Weeping Angel figures.

Any chance of posting a link IRONMAC?

I am considering making a Jamie McCrimmon custom at some point. I have a good base figure and once I have sorted out a few more animations, I'll probably get to work on it.

Well, I've started work on a Jamie McCrimmon figure. Not finished yet as it still needs painting, but I thought I'd share some work in progress pictures. I have since added a little more hair to the sides as it looked a little thin. I've gone for a look from The Mind Robber, but I'll probably end up painting his jumper and shoes navy blue and brown, respectively, as the figure might look a little boring in colour otherwise. I didn't go for the more traditional look as I really don't like the sheepskin coat he wears and it would have involved too much sculpting and the colours of shirt, coat and kilt clash horribly.







I'll post finished product pictures in a few days, if I get the time to paint him.
