    Scarlet Witch

    Ok guys…here I have….the Witch!!!!….Scarlett that is….lol…I must say after receiving this chick...i wasn’t too impressed with her…BUT….i still kept her….i have a rule and that rule is to never make any customs of figures that have already been released….but lately I have found myself making more and more customs of characters that have already been released….and since I noticed this I have decided to throw that rule out the window…lol…which brings me to this custom….i was a huge fan of the prototype that I couldn’t wait until we got a figure that actually looked this awesome!!!! But as we all know what happened with series 10 and 11….well….lets just say that they were somewhat a disappointment to us collectors….whether it was the height on some figures to the down right quality of others…they just didn’t cut it…yeah we bought them but that’s because we wanted the characters soOOOO bad….and a lot of people were disappointed when they found out that the Scarlett witch had been canceled from the wave…including myself…so when I found this out I quickly jumped on ebay and bid and won one of the prototype figures that were being sold….this was my commencement into building my ideal scarlet witch….which in all actuality was the one we had been shown the year before…. Once I received this figure….i wasn’t surprised as to why it was cancelled but lets just say that it was a good choice….once I got her I quickly took her apart and wanted to see what pieces I would need to make this “ideal “ figure that I thought should be the Scarlett Witch….after all was said and done the only parts I could see being used where the hands….the boots….the hair…and the cape….everything else was BLAHHH!!!!…. Seeing what I had to work with I devised a plan that would somehow use these parts correctly….I know…I used the word “devised� like this was some sort of a world changing plan of some sorts…LMAO….well in the end I had figured out what I would use to make her….and here is the recipe…. SCARLETT WITCH RECIPE Head- Shi figure( not actually SHI but the other one….i believe her name Tamoe) Torso- Mystique Upper arms-Mystique Lower arms- Scarlett witch (prototype) Waist- Movie F4 Invisible woman Leg(upper)- Movie F4 Invisible woman Legs (lower)- Scarlett Witch (prototype) Cape- Scarlett Witch (prototype) Hair- Scarlett Witch (prototype) Once all the pieces where in place I then had to sand down some pieces so that they could fit a lil better….i first had to sand down Mystique’s waist b/c it was just a bit too think to fit with the Invisible woman waist…be careful though don’t trim too much down because you will be left with an anorexic looking customs…once that was sanded down I then sanded away Invisible woman’s pant trims she has on her legs….once that was smoothed out it went pretty much easy then…all I had to do was put all the pieces together and VOILA!!! She was done….the colors themselves where a lil harder to establish b/c pink can be a hard color to get….what I did for this was mix some flat white with some neon pink for the base color….it actually came out good as a base color…once this was done and dried…I applied a dry brush of the same mixture but with more white instead….and TADA!!! I now have two tones of pink that look a lot like the colors I saw the year before….the red parts where easy….base black…hard dry brush of some British Crimson to make sure it covers all the areas and the a light dry bruch of Testors Blood Red….the skin color was pretty much that a skin color…any will do…hair was black base with brown dry brush….and that’s it!!! Please guys if there are any questions please let me know…I would love to hear your comments regarding this figure…thanks again guys!!!!!
  2. but sometimes they are.... @littleangel@
  3. Ok guys…some of you guys might have seen this custom on ebay for about one week already….well here is the write up…..lol….it was actually an easy figure to put together because it mostly was an Omega Red….with some grappler baki arms……and a wolverine from series 3…the box set one……well here is the recipe…and I hope you guys like… Head- Wolverine (ML 3 Box set) Body- ML Omega Red Arms- Grappler Baki Figure( don’t know which one) Legs(lower)- ML Sabretooth And that’s it…you might think well that should be too hard….MAN O MAN….when I first took on this custom I had an idea of what I wanted to do but had no idea how I was going to approach this….but as I kept looking at the ref pic I knew I had to implement the Levels Technique…..this means I had to wait for certain parts to dry before I could build more detailed stuff to it…… And this is how it started….once I found the head it definitely seemed a lot smaller then anything I had originally planned….but in the pic it looks like he has a bit of a smaller head…but not that noticeable due to the scruffy hair and all….rather then giving him that calm look of “I’m going to kick your ass� look…..i went for “I’m showing you how I’m going to to kick your arse “…look…… OK what you just looked at was the different stages of the sculpting….i got those two horn things from some figure…don’t know what or who….but they worked well….i sculpted the whole helmet and the minute detail into this because I thought it would look awesome…. Moving to the body and the hardest part…..well I knew that I had to sculpt the Huge Metallic buttons so I made them first…I know I know “how I’m I going to sculpt the clothing around them�…well I saw that in the pics it showed indentations around the buttons….so that’s what I tried to mimic… ok once they were done I then painted the legs and the arms….WHY…well I noticed that the dress thingy had a belt around it..which I intended in sculpting…..in order for me to do this I would have to have the dress thingy on him…if I did that then I would have to paint under that and that would have been sooOOOOOO much trouble…so I went ahead and painted the flesh tones once that was done I could then put on the skirt thingy which came from a LOTR figure as did the ringmail….once those where applied I could then sculpt the belt…why did this affect the torso?….well the belt goes up into the stomach…I wanted to give it depth so I had to sculpt the belt first….I used the Juggernauts bolts….the thing around his armor…as the bolts around Thor’s Belt…look closely and you will see them….once that was done I could then proceed with the sculpting of the cloth part in his upper body….looking at the pic I tried sooOOO hard to match the cloth folds…but in the end I had to add a couple of my own…I think they came out good…..ok…. now that the hardest part was done I then extended the calve portion of the legs…he was simply too short….so once I lengthened the calves I sculpted the armor around them to mask the epoxy putty put in place to hold the two pieces together….. the last thing that I worked on was the arms….this might have seemed to be the easiest thing but I guess they where hard b/c I got reallLLLLLLLY lazy at about this point….well I had to shorten the arms cause they were a bit too long….so I cut right below the articulation point…that way I could keep their articulation while I sculpted over the cut joint….and that what I did to cover the cut I made….take a look Alright guys more pics…. The accessories where quite easy to make…Thors Hammer is basically two Mjolnir’s glued together and then a lil kneadatite to cover the cracks and added lil detail ….. The cape was from an old toy line…I think it was judge dredd….not him but a character that had that fur cape…I got it from him with additional sculpting to the middle of the back to cover the huge hole it had…. well guys that’s about it….let me know what you think…as always I look forward to your critique’s…thanks a million!!!!
  4. it might be the most expensive wave but there have been cancelled products that may have allowed the budget to grow in other areas such as....MARVEL LEGENDS.....plus the demand for this product is there....they just have to keep quality up b/c 10-11 might have almost done them in....its almost logical as to why you are seeing 12 pop up already and 11 is still "delayed"...they know that it is a "lackluster"wave without the Witch....sales would definately slump a lil....but now that 12 is popping up....it makes 11 more desireable to get and creates a stronger demand for this wave....which will sale now because customers will want to get 12 aswell as 11....but thats just my 2 cents...
  5. don't get it twisted now...you are getting new characters that are going to blow everyone away....we might get a briatain.....a sentry...and i believe it was a hulk......all new characters....well at least two of them....i forgot were i read it though....so no more questions...lol.....wink wink
  6. Hey guys thanks once again for coming into my thread…up for show and on EBAY…is Battle Armor Thor… I KNOW….I KNOW….some of you know how much I could care less for any of the Avenger type characters but I saw this Bust about two weeks ago and totally fell in love with it….once I saw it its like I had to make him….it wasn’t till I was done that I decided to sell him since he didn’t fit into my collection….but I was amazed out how clear he came out…(I know I can’t take pics but soon I will have a couple of these customs I made and send them to ActorJez hopefully he will present them better then I can)….but anyways….i used my only Omega red to make this custom….well atleast his hands and his head….the rest is pretty much ML 5 Colossus…but here is the Recipe…. Head- ML Omega Red Torso- ML Colossus Arms- ML Colossus ( left one was shaved down) Legs- ML Colossus Knee Pads- ML Thor Cape- LOTR Elrond OK…here is how this one went down….I first started with the head….I removed OR’s hair and shaved down the thing that held his pony tail up….once it was smooth i sculpted the beard … Mind you, this is one of those jobs where you have to wait for this stuff to dry before you can go anywhere with this….so I added the beard and then waited it for it to dry…Once that was done, I added the chain mail thing around his head from a LOTR figure….it was heated and molded to fit the head….as I finished that… I proceeded to sculpt the helmet….i only sculpted the helmet part...not including the pointy thing on top of the helmet or the thing over his eyes….those where actually the last things to be added on since they looked like they went over the helmet and they came out more….when all this was done I added the wings last…. I hope that by seeing these pics (even though they are horribly taken) will show atleast some of the work…I need to take some picture taking lessons from Double Dealer….ActorJez….Jin Saotome…..Glorbes…SHYT..pretty much everyone….lol….but that’s how the breakdown of the head took place…. When making some of these customs….i have actually learned that keeping or adding more articulation is not always the best thing to do….so in this case I actually got rid of the mid torso articulation to colossus…first I glued to the posture I wanted it to be at and then I sculpted the armor scales in…..NOW these weren’t done by hand at all… I would go crazy!!!! Nope no surry….i used my own patented “stamp�….really all it was was a LOTR figure that had the scale armor….i think it was Eowyn’s brother….i forgot his name…but yeah his armor was used as the “scale Stamp� for this….this was also done in layer but I’m sure it could have been done all at once…I just wanted to make sure it came out decent looking…..so I first did the cheast and the top part of the back….once this was done I did the abs and the sides…sculpting over the ab joint…..take a look… Now moving to the arms…this you might think would be the easiest but these suckers took most of my time on this project…the reason was that I had to wait for the shoulder to dry…. and then I had to sculpt over the scales….and once that was done I had to make sure that I had enough room to fit the arms back into the arm sockets…which at first I couldn’t…. so yeah pretty much after this was done it was just getting the bottom part done and then the cape….so what I did for the bottom part of the armor….i cut and added the foam paper thing around his waist….i didn’t like the surface and had now remembered why I had stopped using this material…but that’s when it struck me….why not use vinyl tape to smooth out the surface….WOW…this was definitely an ACTOR JEZ idea that kicked me in the arse at this point…so once I added it…crazy glued it and then sculpted the outer layer it was a really nice looking thing….i was sooOOO excited that it had worked that I used the vinyl idea again on his legs….his lower legs….as you can see his legs have lines…this was used wrapping vinyl tape tight around his legs…which created line folds….and since it was straight edges….it looked like armor…..BRILLIANT AJ….thanks for that one…..so one all that was done I moved to his cape….which was rather easy….glued it on….sculpted the front part of the cape aswell as the pins…and voila!!!….instant BATTLE ARMOR THOR!!! Ok guys Please let me know if this is comic accurate…I couldn’t find any good reference pics except some pic of him raising his hammer…which I think is the same pic that Bowen used to ref their Bust….but please do not crucify me if there is something missing as I said before I don’t know this Thor in this costume….i just love the design and I tried to emulate it….i especially love the Worn battle armor look….but that’s just my taste….let me know what you guys think and maybe give me some more hints as to where I can improve on…love to take critiques….so let me have it!! Thanks again guys!!!!

  12. Ok….I got a question…what’s the deal with all this thread??? The bickering the fighting… do these toys (and yes they are toys) Run our life?…have they replaced the significant other in our life….? Why do people hate on other people’s opinion??? And they do hate….they don’t disagree they do not even bother to see anybody else’s POV…… These are all questions that I sat here and wondered….I know what it is to have a strong opinion about things worth having a strong opinion about but lets place it in a point of view maybe a lot of us could relate….is this something that in anyway, shape or form benefiting us in any way besides knowing the fact that we got a brand new shiny toy??? I mean does it some how fulfill this desire in you to know that you got a brand new shiny toy or to be the first one in the block with it…I mean c’mon…we are not children here….*well some of us are* but most of us are grown ups….BUT anyways…if this shiny toy gets taken away from you by the big bad company you get mad @ people….Now from reading this long as thread…it seems to me that people at first where mad again b/c of all this lil joe vs big joe crap…and just to let you know…the big joes are crap….That’s my opinion….but I won’t go waving it around as a flag to start an argument and start name calling…I’m too grown for that… someone doesn’t like it…OH WELL OH WELL….my feelings aren’t hurt….i guess I’m just venting b/c I’M tired of seeing this stuff come up….people’s ego has got to come down…especially over insignificant stuff as plastic toys!!!….Lev out!!! #joecool#
  13. WOW...Technokyo!!!! Its been like two years since i saw any of your work!!!! and man O man....this is some awesome stuff here...I'm glad you came back and BETTER then EVER!!!! real nice sculpting, very detailed!!!!
  14. @rambo@ @peace@ ....Oh no ....you read it wrong and I realized that you don't understand my sarcastic tone...he-he....it was just meant to whom ever through any kind of pointless threats about this and about that...not necessarily any violence....I was just poking phone at the name calling actually...he-he.....to lighten the mood up...tooo serious over customs....and yes i was looking for reasons to use slang..... @rambo@ ...gangzta gangzta!!!!!...lol....youknow what...i went to the convention last year but I decided not to go this year....b/c I'm going to SDCC...so ifigures I'd do that instead of the two...plus i gotta save dough and I gotta see about my freaking vacation days...he-he....I hate working...oh and just to let YOU know....if you do go to SDCC....i want to meet YO HO'ss....LOL... no really i do.....wnat to meet your whores...maybe have alil fun......in some san diego ....shyt I'm really looking forward to this trip!!!!! get at me....Lev...OUT!!!!

Humada humada humada!!!! #WTF# @cry@ HOLY SHYT!!!!!......ok....taking lessons right now on how to sculpt.....wink....Chaz....you got here a prime collection.....Damn....I sure would like some of those customs....but i know myself...i would want the whole collection....Bekker knows why I won't keep any of my own customs.....i 'm a Freaking Completist!!!! but damn...those are awesome!!!! maybe...just maybe....
  16. AWW man...i tell u that that Scarlett is the worse....Sorry to say it but I NOW see that I shoudl have used a different head....she looks SOOO cartoonish...Man D...let me fix her up...I don't want to be embarrased....
  17. MAN...I don't want to be embarrassed!!! stop that...and yes Lev gets at the HOOOOOOO's...D...you know how i get down...LOL......
  18. I concur ….have ya’ll seen Family Guy lately…man I can never get enough of that Freaking show….(as levit sat there and wondered if now would be a good time to post something he said “ F**K it, its been awhile since I’ve been here in this board�….my my my how the drama is high around here….going back to my marvel forum…he-he) get at them Ho’s…GET AT THEM HOOOOO’S But for real....this is a trully talented pair of individuals that are cranking out THE best JOe customs out there....no one can take that from them....the detail and the precision...MAN....the patience is there...as far as people's manhood getting tried on a board...c'mon...C'MON...let's sit back down and analyze this...."key board Gangztaz"...I've come accross them but what is really gonna happen...NOTHING!!!! its true that you want to get your point accross and defend your honor....but my whole opinion is...if it aint happening in front of you or around your neighborhood(so that everyone understands) then its like what that pimp said...."brush dat dirt off yo shoulder"....those are Levit words of wisdom....until he gets silly again.... OH and CHAZZ........ GET AT THEM HO'S..............GET AT THEM HO'S!!!!!!!!!!!!! @loll@
  19. sorry.....i forget that this is not a marvel thread...sometimes i forget...but its automatic....i don't ever look at any of the other sujects here except for customs.....customs and marvel is all i do...lol...adn being that I saw the movie last night...i forgot that there are other threads...sorry!!!
  20. Ok Dialogue...it was a comic.....so it was what it was.... Acting.....again.....it was a comic...but....they certainly brought some of these characters alive....Look at Marv.....best character in the film IMO Visually...the best DAMN film in a long time...not since LOTR have I been really amazed at how visiually stunning a film could be. NOW.....in true Robert Rodriguez/Terentino fashion....i was expecting a tie in all the stories that where told....not a simple cameo from each character....but I guess thats what happened....and it left alot of questions at the end....the most important one being....does anybody else know if there is going to be a sequel??? I've never read the graphic novel but I liked the dark dingy feel to it...enough that i might start reading this comic....but... I mean the movie was awesome but in my mind (and I'm sure in others)...it left a sense of well....now what???? for example....who was manute(Michael clark duncan's character) working for??? O'rourke??? was senator O'rourke the Mob head???? or was it his brother??? or was it someone else that was not even mentioned??? maybe some of you frank Miller fans can answer this newbie's questions....Thanks Guys
