From the New Batman/Superman Adventures!
I took two Batman figures and re-posed the limbs and painted.
(and added the Superman head)

I'm guilty of using the Testors model paint.
I hate that it makes a shine, and it does stay sticky to the touch but I'm a cheapskate!
I admire you all that do it right with the proper tools, but I prefer to McGyver my stuff.

Another re-pose and paint.
I love that they made the figure with the jet pack, but the figure itself stood upright and I HAD TO change it.
I used a long wire coat hanger to suspend it from a shelf and it looked great!
I also did a Robin with jet pack, but no pics yet.

Jodi, great Ventriloquist btw.
I like how you used the diorama. I had my figures displayed with a poster-thingee from a sticker book.


The custom villains include:
Red Claw, Clock King, Kyodai Ken, Commissioner Gordon, Grey Ghost, Talia, Grant Walker.

The chi effect is from a Psylocke figure, and it's simply taped onto the wrist. Cheesy, but it looks okay high up on the shelf.

No I found it on google to show what we could do with a blank My Pretty Pony, which are only 3.99 , so I ordered 2 and I'll post pictures when I get them done.

I'm guilty of using the Testors model paint.
I hate that it makes a shine, and it does stay sticky to the touch but I'm a cheapskate!

The paint I use, only cost about 49 cents to 79 cents a bottle and it lasts forever. Once you have it, you will never want to use anything else, I didn't think it would be as good but it is amazing for being so cheap.

Lars  I saw the Robin and fell in love with the whole line of action figures, I really like how you have them displayed. Your Batman re-pose and paint is excellent.

 

Edited to add: Man Lars, those are so nice!!!!

I'm another big fan of those paints.  I've used the Citadel brand and another called Polly S since I gave up on Testors about 20 years ago, and never looked back.  It's just in the last year or so, after clearing out a ton of dried up 'pots' and replacing them, that I decided to try out the Delta Creamcoat and Americana brands. 

Wow.  Similar quality to Games Workshop, a much bigger selection of shades, and they cost less than a dollar for 2oz.  Compare that to $3+ for one paint a fifth of the size and you're paying 1/15 the price.  Gotta like that!
