Anyone done or tried to make a JLU Amazo figure more to show "scale" using a bootleg JLU figure as a donor? The bootlegs are just shy of being 2 JLUs high...I saw one done on AFHub.com but the activity on that site is zero so I couldnt pose the question to any customizer there. There are quite a number of kick arse customizers here so I figured Id ask :mrgreen: Can and will someone make on of these, as kind of a mercenary custom job as it were?

Thanks in advance,

B

Casimir did one - it can be found on his website at www.pilliod.net.

Here's a sample pic for reference.

He also did a similar one of Luthoriac.

Now that's the size Amazo should be! Casmir did a great job with both Amazo and Brainthor (although he does a fantastic job with every custom he does. :) )

Yes he does. I've never seen him do a bad one. And he's very helpful. I've even had the pleasure of meeting him in real life lol. His Bane is just as good as far as oversized figures go.

Tex, do you know if Casimir has done a Black Manta? And Id assume hes done a Hal Jordan...I ask because I only have a short list of "missing" characters Id like to see done and purchase in customs. Need a Manta for my "legion of doom" display and cant have super friends without Hal of course

It seems that the "bootleg" buck would make for a nice Atom Smasher as well ... (hint hint :wink: ) ...

As far as Black Manta, several of us have made him. I made him as part of our Super Powers challenge last year. Mine should be in my custom thread. Stew has a cast head available in his store.

Nice! Thanks man. I knew hed be a figure a handful of you guys would do. I need to get the hang of this customizing thing, that or just keep some of you great guys on retainer!

And I wonder if those bootlegs would make a good Atom Smasher? Naaaah probably not ;)

You should check out Stews castings. You can order a ful size casting of Casimirs bane:

http://stewscustoms.dchallofjustice.com ... -cast-bane

And i'm pretty sure he offers Amazo with the Bootleg body every now and then!
