Resurrecting this thread as I have gotten back into customs in a big way. I just don't have too many done completely yet. Here's some WIP stuff, including one that I am sure Capcom fans will dig. Mostly I'm just trying to perfect these designs to fit my Joeverse.
Helix, Duke, Roadblock, Red Star, and Mouse
Some notes on these: I was never really happy with the head Helix came with, so this in me trying to fix that. The others are my version of these characters, which generally is me taking multiple looks and mashing them together to create a sort of definitive look. I still need a hat for Red Star. Also, Mouse isn't the Retaliation character but is rather the one from Sgt. Savage and His Screaming Eagles. I plan to do all of the Screaming Eagles eventually.
Rain, Gurkha, and Ra's Al Ghul
Rain is a conversion from a Corps figure I kinda liked. He's their team leader and I wanted to fold him into the command structure of the Joe team. Duke, Colton, and Hawk can't be everywhere so there needs to be officers ready to pick up the slack. Gurkha is based on the second version of Mercer, treating him basically as a completely different character. Ra's Al Ghul is the major draw here though, I will admit. I'm basing him mainly on both his BTAS appearance and his Arkham City look. I even have a Demon's Head masked head.
Torch, Dr. Evazan, and Rotiron
These are some of my Dreadnoks and I have been working on the gang for a while. They're a long term project, as I am trying to give them the full biker/mercenary look with tattoos, patches, and pins. Torch is based mainly on his JvC figure as I felt it was a stronger look. Evazan is my first Star Wars character to get a Earth-bound adaption and I like the idea of him and Ponda Baba being Dreadnoks. He definitely looks like he's been in a lot of brawls. Rotiron is my idea for a former Iron Grenadier who defected, choosing the life of a 'Nok over honourably serving his laird.
Here's a look at the patches I've got on Evazan's vest. Still plenty of work to be done though.
Cover Girl and Shocker
Nothing too much to say, they are what they are. CG is based primarily on her Resolute look with a zipped jacket and Shocker is a member of the Thunderbolts/Suicide Squad-like black ops division of G.I. Joe where criminals are offered a chance to earn a place on the proper team or to simply get a clean record and walk away from the life altogether.
Steve Rogers, Joseph Colton, and General Hawk
These men are the primary commanders of the entire team. They keep everything running and select candidates to join the ranks. I also intend on including some other old soldiers in this group like Sgt. Rock and Nick Fury Sr., but over all these are the big boys. Steve and Colton aren't far from being done but I still need a few things for Hawk. He's being based heavily off of the Sideshow figure of him.
Finally, here's the one I advertised at the beginning. Dutch from Predator/Alien's vs. Predator, in 1/18 scale waiting to be painted up. I have planned to do him for a while now but a recent challenge was issued to make figures that are robots/androids/cyborgs and it was just the kick in the ass I needed. I don't know if I'll win but just showing him off when he's done will be a joy in itself.
I'll be posting finished customs up here soon. I hope someone notices and can dig it all. I miss posting work over here.
