Minimate Multiverse Best Customs of 2012 contest, in fact. Other then the decal, there's not much to him, just a dark blue Minimate.
'90s Professor X hoverchair painted lime green. It's actually pretty on-model, which is nice. He's also my submission for the Best Vehicle, Playset, or Accessory category, for which he has no shot. But it's just an honor to be nominated!
Mike Hagger, his head from Old Man Logan, and his hair from an Atlantean Soldier. I think the crotch cap came from the Blob, and the big hands and feet are most likely from X-Factor Beast. I may yet tweak him, since I now have some extra thigh and upper arm covers, but I'm pretty happy with him as is.
I'm going to blow through these guys pretty quickly, since this there's still five to go (sigh). Lightray here has an Angel hairpiece, painted gold, and some spiffy gold wristbands and boots courtesy of AvX Cyclops.
Bride of Frankenstein's robe and the Spectre's hood painted magenta. Next!
Rolento in the otherwise unuseful Street Fighter vs Tekken line, and the inclusion of the holy grail of Minimate hairpieces: the beret. Believe me, I'll be snapping those up like crazy once they hit clearance prices!
Cosmic Odyssey... before dying a heroes death. Bummer. Maybe I'll make a second custom of that outfit someday. Anyway, this one's mostly decals and paint.
Not gonna lie, Lashina here's pretty weak. The picture I took isn't even in focus, and I didn't bother to take another one, that's how little I think of her. This is an older custom, back before I was doing decals, and it shows. Her chest was drawn with a silver paint marker, and is just another shining example of how I can't paint details to save my life. I should really fix her. Everything else comes from Black Bolt, if memory serves.
Stilt-Man, and his chest from AoA Magneto. He's actually one of the few customs I've made where I've really bothered to think about his unmasked version, but I didn't snap a picture of that. You'll just have to use your imagination.
So there you go. The New Gods. Here's another group shot, including the officially released Darkseid, and a couple customs I commishioned from my buddy Luke Porter, Mister Miracle and Big Barda. The former I commishioned before I really knew what I was doing, and I now think I could pull off myself; the latter I knew I had no shot at, and I'm glad I got a master like Luke to do her right. Oh, and all my decals are after the photo. Enjoy!
