From a Raven to a Manta

First up is my latest DC to Marvel makeover figurine. This time it was the turn of DC's Raven. As soon as I saw this figurine I thought of only one Marvel character and that was the Imperial Guards Manta!

She was mainly a clip and file job. But I did do a little sculpting on her cloak, mainly around the neck. The photo though dosen't show how striking the inside of her cloak really is though! Doh!

Raven to Manta

Right as for my scratch build he is all sculpted and molded to the final shape but... I brought a new batch of clay and this one (although in the same packaging) has a higher baking level and it's because of this it's taking an age to dry! But do not fear I will have photos up soon of this beast!

Thanks to Marvelhero for sharing his photos of his Red Hulk with everyone. Marvelhero said: "Absolutley stunning mate im well chuffed with it even the mrs said it was mint and thats summat!!" Cheers bud!

Also people who follow this blog and would like a place to talk about the Marvel/DC Eaglemoss collection should check out this forum: http://thefigurineforum.forumotion.net/forum.htm. It's a cool, chilled place and I have to say one of the better forums out there for discussions on these topics. I'm there too so please pop over and say hello.

Next time for the Marvel makeover it's the turn of Donna Troy and Anti-Monitor again X-People are in the pipeline. Also soon I will post some long awaited photos of my customs and EM figurine collection!

Seeing Red in 3-D!?!

Thanks for the massive feedback on my Rogue custom. My next one is back to what sets me apart from other customisers. The DC to marvel makeover and this time it's the turn of Booster Gold. For his makeover I went for the modern version of 3-DMan!

3-D ManLooking cool!

Next up! I got a figurine request I've been wanting to try for along time. Marvelhero asked me to sort him out with a 'Red Hulk' custom re-paint. So I gladly accepted. I'm really happy with how he turned out.

Red Hulk Smash!!

Next time it's Raven from DC who has to face my paintbrush! Also another scratch build and some more requests are all upcoming... Keep an eye open!

A Rogue Tale

I was asked to do this custom for a guy about 5 months ago when the first photos were shown of DC's Starfire. But I've not heard a peep so I went ahead and made her anyway. It's Rogue! The 90's Rogue!

But now she has a new owner and that's my sister. She as well as me grew up with the 90's X-Men Cartoon and with my fave always being Cyclops hers was Rogue. The photo below is my sister in her Rogue costume for my 26th birthday in March. Where the theme was X-Men vs. Street fighter! Her boyfriend is in the photo too: Gambit!

Rogue & Gambit

I saw that in a recent competition a Rogue custom was made and won one of the catagories. Nice one bud! My version of Rogue is not a copy as I styled her in my own way. I hope everyone like her.

Expect another update real soon for the fate of Booster Gold and a Special sized commission!
