Working out the final sculpted details on my King Arthur from the cartoon show King Arthur and the Knights of Justice. Still have some refinement on the mask that needs to be done but I was able to get it to flip up and down over his face using magnets.

I also am plugging along nicely on my Ultimate Iron Man figure im working on too. Resilient Customs was kind enough to send me the Select Ultimate Iron Man and I’ve been retrofitting the parts from that over to an Endgame War Machine. Moving along slowly but I’m digging it thus far Image

I took this idea from a guy called Ruel of the toys from instagram, so props to him for the method, and check out his page as well.

Its 4 USB light cables with a ton of cable ties with the ends cut off. They were then painted matt black, drybrushed with citadel silver and then bronze. I glued them into the holes in the back after using a dremel to make them larger for a snug fit.

It was very time-consuming but I think really worth it. I am also going to paint doc ock, but Im more than happy with it now and its super poseable on my spiderman shelf.

Thanks for looking

That King Arthur looks awesome!

Put in many hours for Hades and I decided to go ahead and make a Zagreus custom with Shang Chi.

To be honest, I haven't exactly planned how I will go about the Cerberus skull shoulder ornament thingie. Probably just three revoltech double joints taking some liberty.

Slowly but surely, seamed up his toga. Painted his laurel wreath, his feet, eyes, hair, and greaves. Still a long long way to go.

That is a thing of beauty. Octo-Spidey is my #1 most wanted Spidey Variant right now! I loved that figure as a kid.

Dude, that looks amazing! Haven't been in this thread in awhile. Great work everybody!

I'm hoping to have these commissioned, but I started the prep work for them. Comic Venom, Sabretooth and Blackheart. All on the Movie Venom body. I'll probably use the Marvel Select mane for Sabretooth. x1 for the main Marvel section, x1 for my MvC stuff.ImageImageImageImage

That’s gonna look dope royal collector. I love that look for her.

I just finished this King Arthur (based loosely off of King Arthur and the knights of justice) for one of my good friends who commissioned me (and a bunch of other local customizers and Stranded customs) to make him a team of knights of justice. Should be cool to see them all together.

I’m also working on an Ultimate Iron Man for a repeat customer. Not my fav armor but I can’t deny it’s been a fun build so far. Built on top of an endgame war machine with transplanted marvel select legs. First pic shows the whole figure assembled from last week but the second pics are from last nights session.
