Here's an update to punk-rock Rictor:

Used an old Mego Klingon figure as a starting point for the jacket pattern. =D

Also working on Vivisector:

Used twist ties and hot glue for the claws

Just making some mods to Selene. Stripped all the factory face paint and repainted to resemble how she appeared in Necrosha. Also have that nifty little choker she was wearing during that time half finished. For the hair, I'll experiment a bit and try some craft wire, much like I did with my Medusa hair customs, but not nearly that elaborate. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably just finish up the stand in Silver Sable hair she has at the moment.

I have seen a couple people do comic style paint on figures, and I've wanted to try it myself. But that Storm looks incredible and now I have to try it.

Thanks all, thinking how I'll do the cape to match now. Had to pull up so many references to Jim Lee Storm to get some inspiration.

Thanks folks. Not sure if it'll blend into normal displays, may just need to be a stand alone. Unless I do all of the Jim Lee teams to match!

I am sure I’m not the only one to think this, but you should definitely do the whole
90’s X-men team in this style
