There's also a link on the bottom of the page that says order a custom figure.

It is way down here at the bottom of the page. You and Cookie might need to zoom out on the page to see the whole thing.

Um there is no scroll bar or zoom option when I go to this page. Could some just click on the order a custom link and then copy and paste here.

Same problem I was having. I knew I couldn't see the whole page and tried what I could to fix it but couldn't get any scroll bar.

Maybe it's a screen resolution thing or something. I've never had that problem with his site.

It doesn't really matter anyway guys. I was just showing you that as an FYI. It's kind of a waste anyhow. You will pretty much get the same results if you just follow the link Tex posted.

But as another FYI if you really want to see the bottom of the page try going to the upper left corner of the FireFox browser where it says "View" and scroll down to the "Zoom" option there. For Internet Explorer try using the "Page" option which should probably be right across the screen from the tab in the browser that says "Glassman's Customs" and scroll down to the "Zoom" option there and try setting it to maybe 75%. Both direction are for the most recent versions of each browser. Just for future use :wink:

there needs to be a custom data base with pictures and recipes. I made two customs with apple barrel paints and they aren't good but they are good enough to display. I'm not a good customizer but I enjoy repainting figures.

Strange. I don't have that problem when I try to go there. It shouldn't be blocked for any members over there.

You mean your logged in here or on the Custom Justice site? You realize the link takes you off the AFI boards and into Custom Justice right?

Thanks Stew, I did not get a chance to post there yet! Better go introduce myself!

Also, I received my Volcano head cast and she looks excellent! Is there any particular product you recommend for filling in bubble holes? Also, any particular sand paper you recommend using? I can't wait to start putting her together!

Thanks!

This probably should be split off and put in the customizing forum but it's already so far off topic, what the heck. :D

LINK

I use Kneadatite (home page above), which is a relatively affordable two part putty. It's what Casimir and lots of others use, so who am I to argue lol? No heating or boiling required, although you do have a limited amount of time before it sets. And Heaven help you if you don't keep your fingers wet lol - it's notorious for catching fingerprints. You can find it at most hobby stores.

As an alternative, Super Sculpy will work and is usually cheaper and more readily available. But it's also more brittle and requires boiling to set. Hope that helps!

Is there anything that I should look out for in the process (like boiling) that might damage the figure?

LOL, well... you don't boil the water with the figure in it! :P

In this case, you boil water and after the water is hot, you submerge the figure "chest high". The buck and the legs are of 2 different types of plastic, so one gets hot and the other rubbery. The legs are the rubbery ones, and they become easy to mold, reset and/or pop. You can pop them by hand or with a "dull" screwdriver. (That is 'cause you don't want to risk damage with a sharp one).

vicodinac wrote:
Is it easy to put back the original legs once you've taken them out?

Nope. Once you do it, you are pretty much "committed". Plus, once you separate the under seam, it stays like that. Here are some pics to help you along. As you can see by looking at the Superman leg, the diameter is pretty small. Nightwing's is pretty big. As a result, Nightwing's leg would not fit on a "normal" JLU buck. Well, not as it is. But Mattel could easily correct this by "filling in" the inside of the mold/tool the same way they did it in order to give "Hooker Black Canary" her fishnet stockings. Anyways, as you can see from my Kilowog you have two possible options...

1. Use the leg as is, in which case, the under seam will remain separated.
2. Use a sanding tool in order to match the diameter of Kilowog's peg hole to Nightwing's. If done correctly, the under seam will look "closed" even when the figure is placed in a sitting position.

Skinny thighs don't bother me nearly as much as the height of Bane. He can go in one of the backrows, problem solved!

I actually want Bane to have skinny legs!!! All my reference material shows him having skinny legs. He has them in the Batwoman DVD, Knight Time and Gotham Adventures. Casimir also went out of his way to give him skinny legs when he made his custom; and if you look at Cory Smith's Bane Maquette (pictured below), you'll also notice skinny legs. For me, it makes him different than KGBeast, as well as more show accurate. So I wouldn't change a thing. He is in fact, front and center in my collection.


OMG, I am so glad you told me about the boiling. I was completely read to plop my nightwing in a pot and watch him boil to death.

I think reading through your post a few times I'll try this on some of the extra BTNA batmans I have first then. Again, thank you so much for going over step by step with me and for the helpful pictures.

And you're right, Bane makes more sense with skinny legs.
