I have also seen customizer's use large latex party balloons.

Okay, I need to see an example of that!

Ask and you shall recieve, this was a custom i did ages ago. I only used store bought balloons, but a couple of years on and it's still cool.
Capt. Underpants, in case you don't know. Cool

I'm with you all the way there.I didn't know they were even released until i walked into a Shop one day and saw them on the wall.I immediately got excited about Serenity figs until i got up close,then it was BLECH!!!What a disappointment.

Actually there's an English girl who Customises Buffy stuff and also has done some amazing Serenity figs as well.I'll see if i can track her Site down again.

You're lucky you only got that far. I bought a couple Jaynes to make the Challengers of the Unknown and if you move his arms they snap off. All four of them did it. Real pieces of shit I must say.

Thanks for the link. Those are pretty cool. Though I want mine posable. (In case I ever get around to making that ship of theres...  Wink)

Captain Underpants rocks!

Those Buffy customs are pretty amazing too. We should invite her here.

Yeah Jack,she tends to turn all her figs into Statues but she does some very nice and detailed sculpt work that's for sure.

That sucks on those Jaynes,glad i couldn't get over the ugliness of those figs to buy any.Dodged a bullet there obviously.


Are you sure that Adam Warlock wouldn't work for Dozy's custom Andy?It just seems absolutely perfect as a likeness?Anyone got both the MS Ghost Rider and the Warlock fig so we could get a comparison?

Hey all, since the death of the 6" Marvel Legends is upon us, I've decided it's time to start making my own.

Can anyone tell who a good base figure would be to make larger framed male figs? I'm talking characters who are 6'6" or more.
The main figure that comes to mind for that is ML5 Sabretooth but he's impossible to find and expensive. Just as an aside, I noticed he's just a repaint of the 2004 Spider-Man "Venom" figure.

Other series suggestions are welcome.

You'll have to excuse my lack of name knowledge in the Marvel Universe character names apart from the obvious major characters.Saying that Toybiz made a large dude,he was blue and red with a pasty sort of complexion[i think his skin was blue]which might be up your alley.Sorry i can't be more specific.Good luck with you plans though,be glad to help wherever i can.

While we're at it, can anyone show me how Street Fighter heads connect?

Never played with those figs myself Dozy,i've seen them used on ML bases many times though so they might be good old boil and pop.Can't be certain though.

I'm sorry Mate,i know i can't be much more vague than that. Undecided

His Cape was Red and hung in strips rather than a solid piece if that helps. Roll Eyes

Oh and i think he was a bad guy.Helpful aren't i?
