JJJ makes a pretty good civilian Johnny Storm.

I love this. I had no desire to complete my Joe Fixit until now.

I recognize the bodies Johnny (JJJ) and Sue (Moira) are using, but what body is that for Reed?

Movie Prof X?

Im still deciding which head to use for my retro Sue. I was really digging the Gwen face/Sue hair combo but would like to stick to a short hair version.
This is a Gwen face/Wasp hair combo swap. I dont have paints for a blonde yet.

Here's a few more that i've tried..
Warning! FRAT! :
With a DC Direct Flamebird head.

I forgot I tried to make a Blue/White F4 team ages ago. Here's the DCUC Katma Tui on the retro
Image
And a good ol TB Legends 'Ringo head :shock:
Image
If I could find a DCUC Saturn Girl head on the cheap, I think that would fit a mostly Byrne-esque Invisible Woman

Another option for Sue. This is Dagger’s head, with the crescent removed and Sue’s hair swapped on.

And that’s one of the new Thing heads on the old Ronan wave Thing body. Had to Dremel the old face off, but I retained the neck and enough of a stub to plug the new head onto, which also had to hollowed somewhat. I’ve always loved that sculpt, and felt it just needed a bigger head.

Not sure if this counts as swap or 3rd party items, but I painted a cast head from Metaversecustoms on eBay to spice up the House of X Jean and I like it way more now.

I used a Moira head, not super "suelike" but looks good nevertheless.

That's the movie Charles Xavier that came in the two pack with move Magneto.

I snoozed on those figures too and now I kinda wish I hadn't.

Sue Storm & Sharon Carter.

Retro Sue gets the modern Sue head...which used to belong to Sharon Carter (on the Target Black Widow body)...who now gets the retro Black Widow head (yes the eyes are green & the skin tones are not a perfect match, I do not care)...

That's the face the figure should have always come with. Good work, looks pro!

Note that Ben's head and hands don't fit Fixit without modification. The Fixit hand peg holes are tiny, which is odd since most bigger characters have bigger pegs.

Ben’s head seems to fit fine on mine. Did you paint the neck?

Is anyone else seeing Molly Hayes when they look at the Fortnite figure with the pufferfish?

100%. I bought the figure thinking she could be a stand in, but she's way too tall. The only thing that can really be used without modification is the head. I'm brainstorming bodies... And parts really. It'll be a full on Frankenstein kit bash.

What about shortening the limbs and then reconnecting? Or is the torso way too long? I'm looking at the article on the homepage and thinking that you could take some height out of the thigh, shin, bicep, and forearm and at least the shin and forearm could be hidden by the sculpt. It's a lot of work, but the runaways haven't garnered a lot of Legends attention.

I'm sure it could be done. And yes, it would be a ton of work. But I'm not entirely sure how it would mess with proportions. I do think the torso would be too long unmodified, and I'm not sure how much modification that torso can manage. Shortening limbs is doable though. The goal would be to get her shorter than Nico Minoru, or the typical female teen body. That's a lot of height to eliminate.
