I wanted a Night Girl to go with my subs. and I had a bunch of Fire figures that I picked up cheap on cyber Monday.
Dremeled the body down to get rid of the bodice and the boots, sculpted the belt and boots and added a cape made from denim.
Now for Stone Boy and I can call the group complete for now (not sure about infectous lass, porcupine pete, or double header)

Let me know what you think

Looking good, and I like Color Kid the best of the bunch - you off to a good start and keep it up and add when you can!

Nice job with it Hector!

I'll keep trying Doc. So many teams and eras I want to complete. Never seem to find enough time.
I hope to have a couple Golden Age classics within the next couple days.

Thanks for checking her out and leaving me some feedback, always appreciated. :D

I'll admit I had to google her since I've never been much into the Legion. I know the main members but when you start branching out I'm at a loss. She cam out good based on the images I saw, lol.

I promise the next few to be a little less obscure, but you know that's where I like to set up camp :D

Browsing through the loose figures at the ComicCon I found a Green Steppenwolf for $10 and knew he had to good for something, right? Then it hit me, Kanto the Assasin. One of Darkseid's elite, he had a thing for aping the look popular in the European courts of the Renaissance. I got home and discovered that a customizer on the Realm had done the same recipe! So I followed in his footsteps and took a whack at it.
The head is from a DCUC Samurai and the cape is from a Jemm Son of Saturn. The hat is Milliput.

Kirby Sandman....a lot of us hoped in vain, (seemed easy to pull off), but we never saw him. I started with the Black Vulcan and added a random belt/holster from the fodder bin. The gun is a modified, (and by that I mean that I cut off the tip), Captain Cold pistol. I had to sculpt the ears, gloves and boots. The yellow part of his costume is a golden harvest with gold lightly drybrushed over it.

Let me know what you think

I could not bear the thought of Sandman in his purple and gold without his sidekick Sandy the Golden Boy!
I started with a Freddie Freeman figure (God I loved the $6 cyber sale at Matty) and sculpt the gloves, collar, and a new mussy haired do. I used a brighter yellow on his costume and drybrushed a little bit of Incan gold over that, to set it off from Wes's outfit.

As always....Let me know what y'all think :D

Hector both Sandman and Sandy looks excellent and I may say this that you've did a good job putting it altogether and I just loved the paint job that you did with those two figures.

Looks like you did a great job putting it altogether! ... It's even match with the photograph that I found in the internet.
