I'm doing paintless headswaps at the moment since my daughter is still chewing on these figures. A little hot glue tightened the Ray head up until I am completely satisfied that my daughter can play with him.

I'm still collecting the right parts for more radical customs but that won't happen until I can ensure my daughter won't lick off the paint apps.

Those look sweet, Big IV.

Since Action League seems very similar to the WWE Rumblers, I wonder how head-swaps with those would work.

I think I might have to repaint a Star Wars Captain Rex, and slap an Action League Deathstroke head on it... 8)

Just thought I would post and share my latest custom. I decided to do a Batman unmasked for the Batcave. I used the boil and pop method to swap a head from an extra Superman and then I took an extra Batman head and created a mask for him to hold in his hand.

I like your take on the unmasked Batman. I think one of the newer Gotham City set comes with a Batman sans mask. I believe it to be the one that is the downtown buildings with Bane. I still haven't picked up the Gotham City sets yet. I want them, just haven't had the budget it. I will. My heroes need a town.

Thanks Big IV. You are correct, the Gotham City play set does come with a Bruce Wayne figure, however he is dressed in what is to look like a business suit until you put the cowl on which has the Batman logo attached. I was looking more for a suited up Bruce Wayne as a Batman minus the cowl rather than the civilian looking Bruce. :D

I could see why a collection would need both Bruce in a suit waiting for his cowl and Bruce in the suit holding his cowl. Does the cowl from the Gotham City set fit over the Sups head? That might be fun.

I actually tried to see if it would fit but it doesn't. It is made to fit the more generic round head rather than the more custom designed heads in the Imaginext series.

Looks like a Justice League Javelin vehicle is planned for the Imaginext line. Found this on Target's website:

Yay!!!

Been working on some customs. Here's a couple of quickies that I did:

Aquaman was a simple re-paint of his legs (those yellow boots just didn't look right). Black Manta was a generic knight figure but I replaced his legs with some other generic figure. The head and backpack are from one of those mini-league figures (I had to extend his neck a bit). I'm thinking of painting his air tubes red to match the 'brave and bold' black manta figure. I think he needs a little more color.

@The_Joker13 -- Great Bruce Wayne fig! :)

More figs to come!! --Rick

WOW! It looks like it seats 4 figures, has a cargo bay. There is a feature activated on the wing. Looks cool.

Here's another quickie I threw together..... Robin. Basically just a repaint with a 2-sided cape that I made. Real easy to make the cape. Bought the matching fabric at a MICHAEL'S store plus a permanent adhesive made for cloth. Glued the two pieces together and cut it to fit. Voila!! I used the 'heat and pop' method to remove the head and placed the cape under the headpiece.

More to come!! Rick :mrgreen:

That javelin is a tad ugly, but I want it anyway. I want to have a vehicle that will fit more than one or two figures. I hadn't read about that yet until this Target link. Thanks for sharing.


Rick, Thanks for sharing the customs. Nice looking Manta. I agree the tubes need more color. The updates to Robin and his sidekick Batman look good too. :)
