Ok, so Darth Bane is my all time favorite Sith, and he was actually the first custom I had ever done just about one year ago this month. However, nothing from that previous figure remains here except for the head. I was just beginning my journey as a customizer, and didn't know very much about how to go about putting together parts that would complement each other, as well as be proportionate to each other. The result was a disaster. I used an absorbing man base with a Zartan head, which made him look like a pin-head. The soft goods were horrible and his belt didn't make any sense whatsoever. So, in a sort of way, I pay homage to that first mess of a figure by completely redoing him, the right way, based on the same original concept. Leave your comments and questions, I love hearing from everyone! enjoy!
Cap is the same figure from the last post with a new masked head. I dremmeled out the neck post holes on both heads to make them much wider, and refitted them using hot glue to make head swapping a lot easier. Black widow, a project that seemed to be put on indefinite delay, is finally complete and I am very happy with the way she turned out. I picked up the movie Black Widow figure on a whim, not really sure how I was going to improve her. As I searched photos of Widow customs on the web, I began thinking how Hasbro has never given us a really great, sexy looking Widow figure in this scale. Marvel Legends always puts out dynamite ladies, so I began the task of creating a Marvel Legends style Widow in the 1:18 scale. Lots of sculpting, sanding, painting and waiting for the right head sculpt to finally show up in the mail ensued. When the proper head I had been waiting for finally did show up, she suffered from a serious case of man-jaw, so I sanded down the jawline for a more feminine look. I welcome your comments of props, advice, or criticisms as always, and welcome all questions as well. Enjoy!
