JTobin's Custom - Updated 11 October 2014


Hey all,

I wanted to share some of my recent customs. I've been working on them on and off since I was a kid in the mid 90's (of course those early ones are pretty rough). I've recently started getting back into the hobby after a break of about five years or so, mostly making commissions and items for sale, and few for myself to fill some holes in my collection.

First up: Deathstroke - made from Aquaman torso and arms, Martian Manhunter legs, and a Toy-Biz Spider-Man head. Sword is from a Marvel Legends Elektra, and the bandoleer is from a G.I. Joe figure whose name I can't remember, along with other bits and pieces.

Captain Cold (commission for pastadude) - Flash torso, arms, and legs, with Desadd heads and Bruce Wayne face. Recipe provided by pastadude.

More to come. Thanks for looking!

Re: JTobin's Custom


Hey all,

Some new customs I've recently finished, this time two versions of the Atom. It always stood out to me that Atom, being a member of the Justice League, was left out of the line in favor of Cyclotron and the like. I started on a new version, and decided to rehab one i made about five years ago. Both are shown below.

Image

This is the new version, constructed from a Flash torso, head, and legs, with Green Lantern arms. This recipe was slightly modified from the one created by Iron Cow, so props to him.

Image

Image

This is the rehabed version constructed completely from a Flash figure. I recently added the ears and belt buckle and repainted him to fit in with the line a bit better. This figure is now up for sale on Ebay here:

Thanks for looking. More to come.

Re: JTobin's Custom - Updated April 17 with The Atom


Hey everyone...new customs!

Hawkgirl

Image

I've been working on Hawkgirl since last November. This seemed like the custom where nothing would go right. Parts broke after I sculpted them. I could never sand enough.I primed and I resanded. Primed and resanded. Primed and resanded. Then the yellow I used was crappy so I had to go find new yellow. It was a bit of a nightmare. But I think, after all that, it came out okay. I'm planning on making another version and hope some of what I learned will make that a better figure.

Hawkgirl is made from a Toy Biz Invisible Woman with JLU Hawkgirl head and hands.

Image


Starman

Image

I finished this a few years ago right before I took a break from customizing but never got around to taking pictures of it. From what I remember this was a pretty straight forward custom. This is the version from the Legion of Superheroes but he was also being used in the Justice Society of America comics a few years before the New 52.

He's made from a Superman torso and legs, Dr.Fate arms, and a Red Tornado head. Star field was done with a toothbrush dipped in watery white paint.

I think I'd like to make more Legion of Superheroes characters but that seems like a deep rabbit hole to venture down. And I've already got a list of characters that I'll never finish. Ah well.

Image

Thanks for looking.
