My latest custom Eaglemoss figurine...

Doctor Octopus



I used Mole Man as the base, but used the tentacles from the original eaglemoss Doctor Octopus figure.

I did this custom of DC's Fire awhile ago, but only just figured out a neat way to photograph her.



Basically, I made a mold of the Starfire figure, then filled it with a translucent jade resin. When you shine a light from behind, you get the "green fire" effect.
But the jade resin was very messy to work with, and it took a few days to cure in the mold, instead of the normal couple of minutes for normal resin.

Mr. Sandmark, could you please tell me how did you re-posed Batman's limbs? I have an extra detective Batman and i think it would look so much better (and accurate) with his arms and legs more closer.

Hello Diego! (from Canada to Chile!)

I used a razor and an exacto knife to cut off the arms and legs and then I carefully sliced away the plastic at the joints a fraction at a time to get the correct angle. Peeling away slices. When the arms and legs looked right I simply glued them into position.


It's been a long time since I posted the pictures of my customs and a much longer time since I actually customized them. I love the animated series and the action figures that came out back then.

Superman needed some extra clay to fill in the joints at his armpits and crotch, with paint to cover that up.

I did the same for a few other figures. Just cut the joints and shave off at an angle and re-glue.







Thanks for asking Diego. I'm rather proud of these figures and they were fun to do.

Thank you so much for responding! you have truly inspired me to customize some of my Timmverse figures, and i think Batman it's a good start. (By the way that nightwing cycle blew me away! awesome customs, you are very talented ;))

Thanks for the compliment, it's very kind of you and I'm glad you like them!

Your enthusiasm makes me happy and I hope you post some pictures of your figures here when you complete your work.
