More Pictures of Green Lantern Barbie

Previous Posts about this project: The reveal, How she was made

With a DC Direct Black Canary. Yeah, there's a reason I don't collect their female figures.
With another Barbie-brand Heroine

With DC Direct Hal Jordan. I'm not sure he knows what to make of her.

And here's my most recent custom 12" superhero hanging out with my very first custom 12" superhero, made way back in 2005. 

More Comic Character Customs:
4" Animated Gotham Girls: Calendar Girl, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Talia, Harley
4" Starcrossed JLU Figures: Bruce, Diana, Wally, John, Shayera 
(I should get better pictures of those one of these days...)

Mutant Toy: Pirana Man


Another Mutant Toy. Pirana Man isn't especially friendly, though he's more likely to claw than bite.

Pirana Man's base is a loose Batman figure, origin unknown. He has hands from two different Witchblade figures, and his head crest came from an armor piece from the spare parts bin.

I removed much of the original paint first, and cut off Batman's ears. Then I used Kneadatite to fully re-sculpt the head, add the panel over the torso, attach the new hands, and sculpt the fin on the right arm. 

In Progress

After Painting
The tube on his back is a piece cut off of an X-Men Movie Toad. The holes in his back that the tube is glued into were drilled with a Dremel. All non-green parts of the figure were hand-painted and sealed.

Pirana Man retains the articulation of the original figure: Shoulders, hips and neck. Completed 2011
