New Custom Tuesday – 4/26/2011

Black Widow - Strange Planet

New Custom Tuesday is a weekly, creator submitted list of the latest custom action figures. This list provides a convenient way to check out all the latest custom creations posted in the galleries without having to search each individual thread. For this week’s customs, read on!

This week’s featured custom is StrangePlanet’s Black Widow!

Black Widow - Strange Planet


I love to see customizers take a figure that I was perfectly pleased with and transform it into something even better.  I’m the kind of collector who will leave a figure be if it gets pretty close to the mark, but I have great respect for people who want to tweak already good figures like the Hasbro Marvel Legends Black Widow.

Black Widow - StrangePlanet

StrangePlanet swapped a lot of parts between a revoltech Yoko figure and the Hasbro Widow.  The swap gives her a more hourglass figure and thicker thighs that fits more of my perception of the character informed by reading old avengers comics.  He’s added swappable heads and hands as well for a wide variety of looks and poses.  All of these mods look pretty seamless and factory fresh.  Check out a bunch more pics including WIP shots on StrangePlanet’s thread by clicking one of the above pictures.
