Custom Marvel Universe Ares 3.75" - 4"

Postby krenger99 » Fri Jan 24, 2014 11:12 pm

Hi people. I took a MU Colossus and filled his ringed body in with super glue, constantly sanding each layer till I got him smooth. It worked to help bulk him up even further to his godly status. I used Gameworks Green Stuff and white styrene to mold his armor. I implanted Neo magnets in his back and his left hand for weapons gripping and storage. All of his weapons are embedded with metal so that no matter how he is posed, they won't be dropped. He was then sanded and primed and painted with multiple thin coats of quality acrylic paint. I finished him off with several coats of Testors Dullcote to help preserve the durability of his paint. This isn't my first custom but it is my first time posting one here. Let me know what you think, and thanks for looking! :D

Looks amazing bro! This is the first time I have seen the work in progress pics. Still amazes me that Colossus was the base figure! The metal and magnets were a great idea too! Fantastic work ;)^
