Minimate Customs: Around the DC Universe

Yeah, another post today, since I'm still trying to get caught up on my backlog of customs.  Plus, I just made someone yesterday that I'm very happy with, and I didn't want to wait to show him off.  So here's a smattering of some of my favorite customs from various DC Universe characters.

Minimate Customs: Preacher, or I've Been Ripped Off

Last week, talented customizer cheap hack Bob Harris showed off his entry in Custom Con 28 (that's an online "convention" of various action figure customizers showing off their work.  Yes... it's as dorky as it sounds.  At least we're not cosplayers!  Well, maybe some are.  I don't know them personally.  Forget that part), this set of Preacher Minimates based on... well, Preacher.  The very bloody (but pretty bloody good, though that's a bone of contention between my lovely wife and myself) comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon published by Vertigo several years ago.  Now, I know what you're thinking..." Hey Ken, didn't you make Preacher customs ages ago?  Weren't you all ready to submit them to Custom Con yourself as part of your big Vertigo Minimates set?  Didn't Bob Harris, despite living in Germany and not know where you live, obviously break into your house and steal your ideas?"

And the answer is: of course that's what happened.
