I was thinking that we could take things into our own hands. Let's make a list of characters that could be made with existing parts that could be cast by willing customizers to make new characters.

Here are the rules:
1. Be very descriptive with you "recipe".
2. They must be out of existing parts. No "Lets have so and so re-sculpt a head "(unless someone offers to)
3. WE Already Know. Firefly, Dr. Destiny, Volcana, so don't ask. Be creative and think of something new.


Oh also if you are looking for a character or pics of one check these out

and yes I am including these as well.

So I was watching The episode "Alive!" the other day and thought that Major Disaster might be kinda cool.

1. Hourman's head, torso, legs and hooded cape
2. Tom Turbines Arms
3. Shinning Knight's Tunic (idea by An-Gel Sakura)

How about Halo as a straight up repaint of the Justice Lords Wonder Woman?

Some of the ones I plan on:

1) replacing Scarecrow's legs with TNBA Nightwing's. They are the same color, black, but nightwing's are much longer. This way Scarecrow will not be soooo short next to my other TNBA Hasbro figures. His arms are really long, so it shouldn't look too off. And as a added bonus, Nightwing's Hasbro legs are much sturdier and the chances of Scarecrow's top-heavy body making the legs bend and sag over time will be reduced. Drawbcks: if his legs are longer, his staff won't reach the ground. :(

Now if someone would kindly point me in the direction of a tutorial for taking off/putting on these legs, I'd be much obliged.

2) Toyman's buck to make Dr. Hugo strange, and Lex luthor for the head?

Don't forget Shining Knight's tunic.

How about Professor Zoom, aka (Reverse Flash) out of J.Lord Flash.

What Joker was to Batman, Professor Zoom to me, is the ultimate iconic Flash villain in my opinion. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Some time last week when i picked my TOP 10 "Post" Toy Fair 2011 wish-list I wrote this under my Top 10 choices.

Hourman = MAJOR DIASTER,
Livewire = Queen Bee,
Weather Wizard = Dr. SPECTRO (Weather Wizard head on Standard Buck)
Bizarro = BLOCKBUSTER (i've seen this custom repaint -would rather have him this way than NOT @ all)!
Galatea = BLUE LAMA (take bald female head + blank buck + Dr. Light's cape + paint = Blue Lama)
STAS Aquamna = The TOP (maybe one of the other JLU heads would work better, 1 wud work tho!)
STAS Aquaman = TATOOED MAN =(repaint + Mr. Miracle cape & thrown in clear blue Copperhead's snake)
STAS Aquaman = JAVELIN
Amazo = PUZZLER? (sanded down head + paint apps puzzle pieces)
***************************************************************************
Now I didn't specify everything as these ideas were just GUESSES at what could be done:

ex. Livewire would need something for her yellow "panels" on her face armor.
ex. I know they wouldn't be perfect, but a real customizer (I'm NOT one unfortunately) could probably do something w/ my above list!

I do understand when I made this list last week I didn't have exact recipes, my listing these not so perfect ideas we soley for: MATTEL to consider a 7-pack of SECRET SOCIETY members that would use almost all EXISTING JLU MOLDS & PARTS to "Beef Up" the SECRET SOCIETY by offering a Villains 6-7 pack to go with our "Remaining LEAGUERS" 7-pk. on Matty.com.

Also: on another thread last week I had this idead when proposing possible "LOW COST" villains for a JLU SUBSCRIPTION "Test" year. Here was one from my Apokolips themed 6-pack:

Dr. IMPOSSIBLE - Straight RE-Paint of Mister Miracle!

I was thinking about most of these last night as well but Never even thought about Blue Lama or that recipe for Blockbuster.

Roulette= Talia body, Ice's head sculpt a bun in the back.
Sonar= fancy repainting of Superman.
Faust= Wizard body, and purchase the head from that cool customizer you guys rave about.
Granny Goodness=Etrigan w the Granny Head that customizer did.
Circe=Fire's head, w/Mary Marvel or Supergirls body repainted. You need the skirt for the iconic look. Or lounge dress Fire's head on Talia's body.

It's all I got for now.

Sorry Rumble, but that Wizard body would not work for Faust or Desaad. It was a one time use sculpt like Cyborg.

Mostly because I don't care. Just thought I'd point out that the Wizard body would be way off model for Faust. Mattel wasn't thinking ahead when they did that one.

Try Abra Kadabra w/Red Hood and a Dr.Fate cape. Add a Shade cane and Wallah, Presto changeo!

I really like this custom.

I would really like to make Ubu but I can't figure which head I would use. I would make the body with Atom Smasher arms and torso and Green Arrow legs
