Well this I suppose will be my page for updating customs, I'm brand new here, tho not to the customizing scene. If you've landed on this page it means you probably want to see what I'm making. Very well, onward!

Here's an update to an old favorite, a custom Marvel Legends Symbiote Spider-Man! I started with the new 'pizza Spidey' and sculpted in the joint holes using Aves Fixit then trimmed the joints for proper clearance. The front and back spider symbols were carefully painted on freehand and I even created a 'transformation Peter Parker' alternate head showing the Symbiote crawling up his face to form the mask just like the old Medicom toy. The blue highlights were airbrushed on (even on his individual fingertips!) as was the lighter blue on his eyes and symbols using Blu-tak (poster putty) to mask off sections I didn't want sprayed. The outcome? My favorite and most detailed black costume Spider-Man custom to date!

Sure deal. Here you are:



Is it Kosher to link a bunch of pics to a post? I usually just post one and then link to the custom's page so the page here loads faster for people.

Oh snap, I figured you just used the head that came with the pizza Spidey!

What head is that?

Hello Jin, I actually follow your work on ebay. Your customs are outstanding! Some of the highest caliber work I have ever seen. Given these things, every time I look at one of your ebay auctions, they are up to $500, $600 and even $900. These are out of my price range, so I just have to admire your work in pictures. Cheesy

It's a Karl Urban Star Trek head with Apoxie Sculpt symbiote sculpt over it. The hair worked so I went with it.

You really follow my customs there? That's all sorts of cool. I get some crazy totals sometimes. My MOTUC stuff has been topping totals. I mean I start everything at a penny and just let the buyers decide what they think my customs are worth.

Yes, there was one in particular about 2-3 months ago, that really stood out. It was a sort of devil and I believe it had horns. It was amazing. Also, I think you had a Manglord one recently. I have the actual Manglord figure from 1982 still in the package. I posted it in the retro toys section on this site if you would like to check it out.

That was probably Terra-Bull, part of my Subternia line. Thanks for being a fan! I'll keep making them as long as you keep liking them.

She's deadly, she's powerful, she's got six arms! It's the X-Men's Spiral and here she's been revamped in Marvel Legends style. I started with the upper half of a Target Exclusive Spiral and mounted it to a Captain Marvel lower body. She sport's Black Widow's head, different dance-pose hands, and Spiral's leg fur was hollowed out and attached to the new legs. Winter Soldier's belt was added along with the original Spiral's helmet. A modded Scarlet Witch hex became her magic effect and she can wield three different swords with the new hands. One airbrushed paint job later and Spiral was ready to capture the X-Men in the name of Mojo!

With the Avengers Age of Ultron movie upon us we're getting to see even more classic characters given the Marvel Cinematic Universe treatment. Here I bring you a concept MCU styled Wolverine Marvel Legends custom figure. Should Fox ever give up the X-men rights could we envision Logan looking something like this? Wolverine was made from the upper body/lower legs of a Marvel Universe Apocalypse, Sabertooth lower body, Hush Batman lower arms, and an X-force Wolvie head. Uniform sections, buckles, straps, and fins were all sculpted using Aves Fixit/Apoxie Sculpt. Claws were crafted from carbon steel tines that came from a spring-loaded meat tenderizer sharpened and angled. Wolvie was wrapped up in an airbrushed paint job and sealed with Liquitex varnish for protection. I also created a claw/battle damaged MCU style Captain America shield so you could create some X-men vs Avengers movie battles!
