I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to come up with the idea of painting a character black.

Just saw your custom too... well, there's another difference: my Kevin is not barefooted. I used the legs of a Sentry.

For reference, the cloth jacket is the cloak of an Emperor Palpatine (cut to look like a jacket). The white lines were made with white tape.

Looking forward to see the customs based on Obi-Wan

The peg for the head in the Tron figures is smaller than the one used in the Star Wars figures, so I used modeling putty to fill the space. I put a bit of baby's oil on the peg so that the putty doesn't get stuck. That allows the head to turn.

Come on now guys, this thread was started as a reference for making custom figures, not to argue about who did what first. We'll all make figures as we see fit. Everyone's customs look good.

I heard Tamiya acryllic paints do well on these toys.
Any advice?

If you happen to live in an area where there is a store called "Fred's", I know they have some "Terminator: Salvation" toys (I don't know if they've got any of the action figures, but I remember spotting some toys from when I first entered the store). I think "Big Lots" may have some too, but I can't be sure.

Nope, no Fred's I'm afraid

OH! And while I'm at it someone here asked about Tamaya Colors paint. I've usd some of their paint here and there and for a flesh tone base they have some great paint however some of the primary colors have a hard time hardening enough to be durable like the Testors paints. For this reason I try to use Testors paints more often as I fond them to be more durable.

Thanks for the tip on testors acryllics.

I use the "Games Workshop" acrylic paints for all my custom figures. The local comic book shops in my area carry them. Plenty of colors and they work great!

For those interested in what they look like, the GW paints can be found on their website here: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?prodId=prod1095435&_requestid=9111
The paints are mainly used for Warhammer 40k, and other games of that sort, but they work great for figures. Here's a couple of examples of customs i've done with the paint:


And here's a preview of a couple of programs i'm working on...



Hey those look really nice! I like the new Programs there. Is that second one a custom Kevin with a sculpted hood? They look amazing so far!

Thanks! The program on the left is planned to be a virus, and the one on the right will be a hooded sentry (kind of a "Gibson" style character).

for those really looking for a mess of options for custom legacy figures:

http://www.brokenarrowtoys.com/cart/
unless you're handy with a dremel what you're looking for is the 25th anniversary style joe heads. those are the kind that pop onto the ball of the spinmaster bodies.

i've been highly tempted to make a few likeness sculpts in zbrush, send em off to get 3d printed, then mold em up. problem is i know i'd want to make them availible to you guys, and how fast would spinmaster/disney come down on me? would they be as cool/tolerable with custom figure parts as marvel and dc has been?

Excellent work so far!

The use of the Kenobi head is inspiring!

Looking forward to your finished figures.

Kuzeh,
I really like the lights/bases that you used to display your figures; How did you do it?
