I've decided recently to sell off nearly all of my Marvel Legends, Marvel Select, X-Men Classics, Fantastic Four Classics, Hasbro Hulk line, and pretty much all of the rest.
In addition to the normal retail figures, I'm selling off a lot of my custom pieces too. In fact I took the opportunity to finish up or flat-out make some customs to sell along with all the other figures. I started off with about 300+ figures to sell and so far I've sold 100 or so.
Following are a few of the customs I've sold that I hadn't previously posted - I don't think all these have been posted. Apologies if there are some duplicates.
Alpha Flight Puck:
I'm actually very happy with how this Puck custom turned out. He's made from a Super-Hero Showdown Juggernaut body and a Marvel Legends X-Men Boxset Wolverine head. I gave him a haircut, then cover the head with some scuplting material and added paint. The parts went together with a little bit of trimming and there you have it!
I would have pictured him with my Guardian, Sasquatch or even my US Agent custom but they all sold already!
Basically I used the Hasbro Marvel Legends Build-a-Figure Red Hulk head on a Marvel Legends grey Hulk body. I really didn't want to buy all the figures to assemble the actual Red Hulk figure so I made my own! Originally the red paint on the figure was intended to be a rough coat for subsequent coats of paint. I liked the un-even look enough I left it as is.
He sold pretty quickly too, so fortunately I'm not the only one that likes it.
Bobby Drake Ice Man:
Basically I did a thorough dry-brushing on him to make him more "frosty."
Isaiah Bradley from Truth:
This was criminally easy - I basically painted a classic Captain America in black face. I did feel conflicted about that when I was doing it - but the end result was a new character so I got over it. Again this guy sold quickly so I guess he was well-received.
I'll post more soon! If you're interested in my auctions, you should be able to follow this link to check them out:
