    MISTERMIRACLE: nice Toyman. Isn't that head a b*%$# to sculpt, though? I'm still going back to mine later this summer to clean it up. GREAT JOB!

    And that Atomic Skull looks like a recipe good enought for me. Waverider, huh? Awesome idea. Thanks for sharing!

    BLACK STARFIRE LOOKS INCREDIBLE!

    I'm gonna be scrambling like crazy to finish mine up. Way to procrastinate! Hopefully I'll finish most of, if not all of, what I wanted to do. Only one entry from me this year, stupid real job taking up all my time!

    How do I safely combine the parts of a Black Canary with a bad lip and one with a bad leg's parts to come up with a perfect one? I want the final product to be playable still.

    Here's an idea.

    Ok, I didn't really do this for real. It's hard enough for me to come by a red tornado as it is. But I would the second I find another one. hehe

    Ooooo... I like that. But yeah, finding a second one would be tough. Could also be used for Flash's "helicopter arms."

    Well, those ones are the even less accurate Red Tornadoes, if you got the usual pack, with the whole yellow circle for the T symbol, plus, no tornado.

    I saw a picture (might have been yours) of "Bad Lip" Black Canary. The poor woman had a stroke, to be sure. I wish you luck, since I know nothing about customizing, but I'd suggests sparing yourself the time and trouble and just trying to find another one with a better paint job.

    That way, you can use "Bad Lip" BL for spare parts when you're feeling creative, without any pressure.

    Unfortunately the Target Exclusives are hard enough to come by as it is, so me finding a second BC is just lucky. hehe.

    The Target Exclusives are sold in a shop here in the Philippines for around $4 each figure. The catch for these cheap rarities? A little smidge of paint here a little bad leg there. Ocassionally you find an okay one, like my Bizarro whose only issue was that his cape was stuck to his butt and not free like the normal one.

    CUSTOM UPDATE!

    Lexiac/Braniac/GodLuthor

    Lex Luthor in green military uniform (sculpted pockets, too)

    Gorilla Grodd (too tall, but oh well)

    Homer Simpson as Lex Luthor in a Super Powers package

    And a lot of Transformers!

    Enjoy!

    It's all really top-notch stuff, and it's cool to see yet another Grodd based on Casimir's, but the Lexiac custom is what really blows my mind. What is Lex/Brainiac's complete, in-depth recipe? Tell me please!:sweat:

    Ah, when two of my favorite customizers ask for a recipe, I must share ! ;)

    God Lex is made with the following: Green Arrow legs (perfect height), Martian Manhunter arms, Mattel's 1st Lex head (from Lex with the suit), and the chest/torso is from Kenner's STAS Lex Luthor.

    Super Sculpey for the "collar".

    Primed and spray painted yellow.

    Blue ball point pen for "details" (or lack of :p ).

    One of my new favorites!

    OH, and thanks for reminding me (even though Casimir knows), the Grodd comes from his recipe.
