I haven’t had a lot of time for customizing lately, but one of the figures on my workbench is an Age of Apocalypse Colossus. I have wanted to have this Minimate for a long time, and luckily someone commissioned one from me, so I can make a duplicate for myself. 🙂
I am using a Marvel Series 47 Colossus base, with bulked up parts from the TRU Kingpin (since AoA Colossus is usually drawn pretty massive). I gave him a new angry mouth, and his bandanna is cut from a Spider-Man slip-on mask with a vinyl sticker for the eyes. The back of his bandanna is cut from the red sheet plastic in our store. I cut the knee pads from the Series 47 Colossus and glued them on to the Kingpin legs. I still need to sculpt his bandoleer, and do quite a bit of painting.
Also, I promised I would update this blog when Solomon Grundy was finished – well here you go!
I am very happy with how he turned out, and I will have an extra one for sale on eBay soon. 🙂
