This is brilliant!!!


Yeah this is great! So do you paint the outside then? In the photos, how do you have them held up to the figures...like how they are shooting from Supermans eyes and GLs hand?

Yeah, the stirrers are painted once the glue is in place. As far as placement goes for the pics, it's just careful balancing.

Hey Magog nice pictures and custom Superman, did you have to re-paint the neck of that DCUC Superman for it to match the DC Direct Head? thanks :)

Thanks ;)

No need to paint it. The colors match almost exactly.

The batsignal is fromthe European-only release of the Attack Armor Batman, also listed as Batsignal batman. It was a deluxe carded Batman from the 6" Mattel Batman line, which preceded DCSH. It's my favorite accessory of all time, and I did a little feature on it on the DCUC. info Facebook page. It's been asked of Toy Guru several times, and he is aware of the demand for this piece.

Who is this Toy Guru you speak of? I would love to have one of these. I'll have to keep an eye out for one and also keep an eye out for any potential way to make one.
