I am really trying my best to post more on a regular basis. It's working right? Right? This is just a brief update on the minor custom projects I have started on some Marvel Legends styled figures. The toy story stuff is still in the process of being finished. Those toy pictures really take up a lot of time.
My plans to start on my own custom Polaris Marvel Legends figure have gone bust. At least in terms of what I originally wanted to do. There's a wealth of Polaris customs out there that are just spot on to her various looks. I began to notice that my talents were more on the lazy side so my plans for Polaris now include making my own interpretation of the figure on a Scarlet Witch ML figure. They are sisters and in the great tradition of total shared repainted parts like Toybiz was famous for back in the day, it just seems like the right thing to do with sharing those parts. The mistress of magnetism is going to take a bit longer to actually complete.
With Polaris a bit on the back-burner, I also decided to take on the task of painting another figure, one who has been a part of All My Toys before: Gwen Stacy! A couple months ago the local Walmart had the new Spider Gwen Marvel Legends figure and that extra Gwen Stacy head sculpt was just begging me to find a new body for it. I don't like having extra heads rolling around the Archival Room. This is not Death Becomes Her. This is real life. Heads belong on bodies! Unless it's a brutal toy death scene. That changes everything.
So after a decent hunt through my local comic store I was finally able to grab an extra Rachel Summer ML figure which has the perfect design elements for Gwen Stacy. Here's a picture of my progress.
Anyways, I wanted to share this because I really love being able to do this from time to time. I find it therapeutic and with work and life just being busy and messy all the time it is nice to zone out painting toys. While chewing bubblegum.
Hope you guys are all doing well! I hope these figures will turn out super fun. Talk to y'all later!
