That's Drax's belt, from the Zola wave. It unfastens easily, fits perfectly on Cap since they're the same mold.

Yes, the hands are swappable on IF, that's why I used the forearms from the new figure. Couldn't let that go to waste.

GRIFTER 5.0
Image
This is the fifth custom (at least) that I’ve made of Cole Cash from the Wildstorm Universe. Parts are as follows, no paint whatsoever:

Head: Playmates WildCATs Grifter
Hair: ML Boom Boom
Body: ML Old Man Hawkeye
Hands: ML Gamerverse Captain America
Bandoliers: ML 2pk AIM Troops
Belt: ML 2pk Ult Captain America
Guns: ML Silver Sable?
Jacket: GPSLot

I picked up that jacket a while ago, intended for an Orson Randall custom that never came to fruition. Then I saw someone on Instagram, maybe newcollector, post a very similar recipe. So I found whatever parts I could scrounge up. The work only came in when hollowing out that Playmates head and fitting Boom Boom’s hair on.

Here he is with three previous Grifter customs:

And here he is with my recent Zealot part swap from last year:

Its neat to see the evolution of those mods and customs you've done. The commitment to use as minimal paints and well thought out part swapping is a joy to look at and dissect. Virtual fist bump Norm!

That's a nice quick and easy Grifter. I knew that Old Man Hawkeye would have it's uses and you definitely capitalized on it.

Iron Fist

Haven’t read the book this look is based on (Power Man and Iron Fist) but I loved the Bruce Lee style tracksuit with sneakers. Had an extra Johnny Storm figure, so I put this together. No paint rub, but painting the yellow lines was a task. The collar is a piece of Moon Knight’s cape that I trimmed off. Had such a hard time matching skin tones to white Iron Fist’s hands. But I’m generally happy with how this came out. My eyes ain’t what they used to be, my hands aren’t as steady. So all that physical deterioration considered, I’m feeling pretty good about this one.

Norm, glad to see your back at it. That would be my next want from Hasbro for Iron Fist. I really like the track suit look for Iron Fist and yours is beautifully executed.

All made using spare parts from X-Factor Cyke. Cockrum design is an AoA Morph body, Lee and Cassaday designs use the Deadpool body from the Strong Guy wave. Lee uses harness from Love Triangle, Cassaday uses AoA Weapon X belt.
