Welcome to the very first Custom Showcase hosted by Action Figure Insider. We have received some fantastic entries and we have waited far too long to show them off to everyone. So here they are for your full viewing pleasure.

We’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to everyone who supported us on this endeavor.

Apache Chief 12″ by Swass!

Apache Chief here uses a 12″ DCSH Superman as a base. Waxed thread makes for the vest and boot stitches and leather cording makes the headband and the moccasin-tops. The rest is just paint and Magic Sculpt.

Aquaman by Lars

Aquaman was was made using a Superman base which was smoothed over with resin. I used cut vinyl decals the belt and leg fins.

Batman (Detective) by Iron-Cow

While I really enjoy the DCUC Crime Stopper Batman, the figure struck me as a tad bulky overall. Growing up on the Neal Adams and Marshall Rogers vision of Batman, I prefer my Bats to be a bit on the leaner side, and to have a little bit of vampire drama mixed in with his cape as well.

Batman by Buzzy Fret

My all time favorite superhero. So I wanted to make one for my shelf that incorporated all that I liked about him. I guess you could say this is a Lee-Wagner-Miller look.

(more…)

Batman by Dr Nightmare

Batman here was a fun break from all the sculpting and grinding I’ve been doing lately. A simple repaint of the DCUC Detective Batman, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mattel released him like this later on, it’s the perfect Animated Series version, even the belt is almost the same as in those cartoons. I loved that show, I just had to quench the nostalgia.

Doomsday by lesternessman

I wanted a Doomsday that was larger. Nothing wrong with the 4H sculpt, just scale-wise he isn’t much bigger than Supes.

(more…)

Golden Age Hourman by Iron-Cow

The Golden Age Hourman custom figure originally began as a DCUC Black Manta. I popped off Manta’s helmet and neckguard, and added in a replacement head from a DCUC Superman Blue. The cape is taken from a DC Direct JSA Modern Hourman figure, along with his hourglass accessory and part of the costume’s hood.

Golden Age Manhunter by TalonSoulbender

Paul Kirk was a fairly easy custom, he was made using a DCUC Red Tornado, I removed the cape, puttied the arrow on his head, and handed him over to my customizing partner ReverseJack, who gave him that snazzy paint job!

(more…)

Green Lantern John Stewart by Grundy

Growing up watching Superfriends, it’s easy for me to initially consider Hal Jordan as THE Green Lantern; so when Cartoon Network opted to use John Stewart in the new show, it was natural for me to have strong opinion against their choice.

(more…)

Hawkman by Lars

This is a DC Superheroes-style HAWKMAN using a DCSH Superman as the base and DC Direct Hawkman wings and mace. I first removed the cape smoothed over Superman’s back with resin and sculpted the mask.

(more…)

Joker (Bank Robbery) by evanjones1

“Bank Robbery” Joker was made from a Gotham City Thug. I sanded down and sculpted the head and hair, removed the tie, and added the gun from a ML4 Punisher. The suit has since been painted a lighter grey and looks MUCH better!

I was going for a cross between Kingdom Come and 52. Starting from the head down, shaved down the Batman head, used Rubber bands for his harness. Cut the pellets off the DCU Batman belt and attached them to the harness.
