Hi,
While i am waiting for some stuff to come in to finish my mutagen man i started work on my next custom Man Ray. did a rough with Plasticine because in my haste to make him i managed to superglue his elbow joints rendering the base figure (Aqua man) pretty useless, so while i wait for the funds to buy another base fig here is my mock up.

as always comments/thoughts criticisms welcome

I like his fins; I think it'll come out looking really good when you do it for real. :)

I would love for you to create a master thread of all your stuff, but not because you're spamming, simply because it's great stuff and I prefer that everyone have a lone thread for their customs.

This is some ambitious work, man. I can't wait to see it unfold.

If you boil & pop the arms off, then submerge them in boiling water for a few minutes, you should be able to get a thin, flat screwdriver (or similar implement) and prise the elbows apart without tearing the joint (although you'll probably lose the peg). Might save you buying a new figure...

ah, too late im afraid tried to "gently" prise it and tore the joint already. might see if i can boil them and fix it. cheers.

Off to a pretty good start! I feel like his arms might be misproportionately long, though...

Cheers, they probably wont be as long in the mock up but they will be longer, wanted him to look they "peeled off " his pectoral fins*


*i had to look up what they were called. Customizing: educational and fun
