Looking nice. But that long neck and low shoulders are throwing it off a bit. I would consider building up the traps a little more.

I wanted a Bagley style Spider-Man on this body so I removed the Cyborg parts and added the arm from Klaw and the head from Lasher.
He should be a relatively straightforward paint job to finish now but I probably won’t get around to that for a year or so. Ideally I’d like to get him some additional alt hands too but they’ll probably have to be from a KO figure when I can be bothered to get hold of one.

Having to wait a year for a great looking Spiderman would drive me insane.
Hope Hasbro takes your hint and releases the very same figure. :o

I realized that I've been back and forth in my Pitt to Hulk conversion for about 13 years... what has hung me up most is the head and the forearms. I need the musculature to be right and fit with the rest of the sculpt. Looking at every other figure I own, there's not a single bit of decent reference. But I'm going to figure it out so I can finally finish and sell this thing and get it out of creativity limbo. Image

Also decided I didn't need an X-men Deadpool and started working on another dupe for Multiple Man since I just have the one. Image

I needed to repaint this figure. I've been working at it all day today and I'm not certain when to call it quits as there are so many small details to catch.

Before:

How he's broken apart:

He comes apart very easily. It's all ball joints. Just be careful popping him apart. (Especially because the points are all sharp) The joint at the crotch slots into the waist piece to hold it in place, also... so make sure it's lined up back inside properly or his hips will be shifted weird and hard to get back into place.

Great repaint. He was already a great figure, but you really brought out all the little details.

That’s a good looking start for kitty.

Been a while since I’ve posted here.

She-hulk that im working on, I really need to take more pictures during the process, I need to touch up on details here and there, but im quite happy with it.

Body is off the gray she hulk, head of silver sable, wristbands of some legends (i dont know, i got them on ebay).

This was a very long project because of sanding down the jeans, but a fun one at the end. I'll submit more pics once am done correcting the little mistakes.
