Head Options for an Avengers Busiek/Perez Justice Custom?!

Sun Jul 17, 2022 6:29 am

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to make a custom of this costume:

Loved that run, and I already made a Perez Firestar.

I have a GOTG Vance Astro figure for the base and I thought the Quasar cape would work, but I didn't realize how tight it was on the Bucky Cap and Vance is much bigger.

I just ended up with a Mattel 6" Cavill Superman figure in a lot and I think I can rip his cape off to do the cape (or close enough).

But the headsculpt is where I'm stuck - I can't think of any MLs with the headgear aside from Gambit, Cyclops and Havok, and I'm not a huge fan of any of them for Justice, who I would love a smile for.

Can anyone recommend a Mattel DCUC head perhaps? I used DCUC Black Canary for Firestar and it looks so good, so something that looks similar would be great. I didn't follow that line so closely. Or a figure from another line - looking for any suggestions!

Thanks!

Still looking for any suggestions for his head! I deepdived into DCUC and none of them are really a match, except Superman Blue/Red, but they have the gear divided on the forehead.

Toy Biz Captain Marvel? He's not smiling but, if I remember right, has the headgear.
