Re: Custom display case


Thanks so much for the tip! I'm going to try that now.

I boiled them and split them using an exacto knife and box cutter. Once you get one of those to pierce the seam, gently apply up an down pressure. Eventually the whole figure will snap apart. If you think it is too difficult, let the figure boil some more. I typically start at the side of the rib cage and work my way up to the shoulder. On my figures there is a slight bit of damage where the blade initially went in. But after priming and painting it isn't that noticeable.

That worked out pretty good! Now I just have to let him sit on his vinyl cape for awhile before I put him on display. Thanks again for the suggestion!--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Re: Custom display case


Nice! I plan on making a Rayo some day... I would have simply done a yellow circle (with a template because circles are difficult to do by hand) and then put the red lightning over it. I imagine the red over that dark background might not be visible.
Great pictures! What photo service are you using to post them?

Re: Custom display case


I use [sign in to see URL] Before I upload an image, I use the software GIMP to size the photo so it isn't too large. After the photo is uploaded to [sign in to see URL], I open the image in a new tab so I can copy the direct url to the photo. Finally, I copy the direct link to the prompt box of the "insert image" button on a new post.

Having a master's in computer science helps when posting images to this site... emoticon

Re: Custom display case


So my series 2 case is nearly finished! Just looking to complete some of Desaad's accessories.

I also tried my hand at a custom carded 33 back Batman figure which I think turned out pretty nice.

Still on the hunt for a loose Cyborg to complete series 3 if anyone is looking to part with one emoticon

Re: Custom display case


Are you modifying/photoshopping the Estrela mini comics for your wave 3 figures? Plastic Man looks correct... I guess you simply have to make-up some of them. I'm eager to see your Golden Pharaoh!

Re: Custom display case


Glad you are interested. Making the custom comic covers takes a long time!

Yea I used the Estrela comic covers for Shazam, Cyborg and Plastic Man. The others I'm making from scratch / layering Internet images, vectorizing, etc.

The covers I posted earlier were a bit too low res for me so I've been redoing and color correcting them when I have a bit of extra time. I just have Mr Miracle and Samurai left to do.

I'll post some pics soon... Maybe by the end of the week. I really wanted to hold out posting pics of series 3 until I found a loose Cyborg but that seems like it will be awhile.

To hold you over until Mr. Miracle and Samuari are done... Here is my custom Captain Ray and mini comic. I figured Captain Ray should be battling the Abominable Snowman.
