Have you tried the old SMC venom feet or lower legs on your customs?

I have tried them, the legs themselves that is. If I switched to them, it takes some of the height away. I haven't tried the feet alone, but originally I was going to use SMC Mac Gargan Venom feet. The Gargan feet just never sat right for me. I may look into just trying the older feet out. I know the ML Venom and Sabretooth feet are small for this body. They are sort of depicted that way in the Capcom games, so I don't mind it too muchImageImage

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.

I've said it before, but I loved that show as a kid. It was so wacky it was just right. And such great smooth paint work.
But the sculpt on that IM is just blowing my mind.

Got gamerverse cap from dorkside on sale to complete my joe fixit and have zero need for cap so time to make something.

I like the tactical look of the figure and wanted to make something for the joe shelf but not a popular character that hasbro will make and waste my work so I picked someone I think won't be made soon but we will see.

I'll let you all guess who its gonna be, may be really obvious, I dont how popular he really is, but I didn't remember him so its fresh for me and worked with stuff I had.

Soon as I get another gung ho hat from tfitz (just borrowed my gung hos hat for pics) ill get to painting. Probably not going to do the exact colors of the old toy and instead go for more realistic muted colors.

So when I saw Robo’s Play Day where he talked about the Rita blank (which turns out is just a female Ranger without a belt, hands, or feet) I thought “That would make for an amazing low effort Kim Possible as an adult custom!” And so far so good!

I have absolutely no idea how to handle her lower legs though. Not a big fan of the Ranger Boot (but may end up putting them back on and just finding a pair of feet for her, covering them with some baggy khakis from GPS Lot, but then I feel I’d need to go full One:12 and get a shirt too and then it’s not really low effort anymore is it...) anyone have any suggestions for a Marvel Legend shins donner?

Retro Black Widow. Or ML Domino/Mockingbird. The later have an armored shin guard, but I love the look.

Here's an update on Punk-Rock Rictor

Still need to add some washes to match the buck's skin-tone.

Hellion Jestream

Ended up using starlord head and may replace later. Need to sand neck and dremel head joint to lower the head a tad and then touch up the paint.

New Mutants Powered up Sunspot

Was able to grab a couple of venomized miles morales' on the cheap. Hands and feet are from female leftovers. Plastic is different from other figures and doesn't sand well. Not my first choice, but Nightcrawler's head is close enough for now. Also working on non-screaming head. :o :P
