Hey Guys,

Something I had been Working on. I love Stretchey characters,.. Thought it would be neat to take the "look" to the 8inch Mego Format. So I invented something... I took Russ's small buff torso. Added a longer look to it,.. so it would appear to be Stretchey. Put a Ball joint on the end of it too. I boosted a Hand from the Plasticman Justice figure,.. then made the joints for it like Mego. I got the other hand from a Fantastic figure.

& A work inprogress for the Upper Body }

So,.. After all that was done ... :yuk: I picked up a Handsome Gentleman Head from Laurie,.. & added a Small neck to it. To give the Neck a Stretchey look. I didn't want to do anything with the Legs,.. I thought with the whole upper body "stretching.. it would be enough,.. Plus He could Stand Better.

Hand Sewn Suit & Leather Makes up for the clothing,.. Legs & Pelvis from Doc. Box Comming soon..., I jumped the gun. :grin: In theroy this "look" could work well for all the Stretchey Characters out there,.. as well as the 5 Different Mr. Fantastic Suits. :wink: The figure over all,.. stands at just under 10inches tall. Just Enough,.. to fit in with everyone. :yes:

very cool looking stretcho there, looks like a lot of work has gone into it, pity the ML version wasn't as good

Awesome job on the torso and arms. Suit looks awesome too. A perfect fit. He looks too young to have the grey sides. That body would work great for Plastic Man and Elongated Man too. With some arm changes Super Skrull might be possible also. Some really nice stitch work on the suit. It looks great.

Boy oh boy! What a nice piece of work that turned out to be! Looks like a lot of time and thinking went into putting that one together! I'd love to see you turn out Plas, EM and Elastic Lad figures! Too cool!

Man, you sculpting guys kill me every time. Just when I think I have something cool in the works, it gets blown out by somebody elses kickass custom. Nicely done. He really looks sharp.

That just looks so realistic, like he's actually stretching! That's a really fantastic Mr. Fantastic! :applause:

I love the way that torso turned out. Very cool and a great contribution to the Custom Mego world. Any chance of making a body that looks like a spiral? ;)

NICE! Seem a lot of Elasticman figures stretched out, but haven't seen a Mr F like this.

Fabulous, Jason. You come up with some innovations that are so "outside the box" that it is no wonder you are the master of quirky and obscure yet challenging customs!

Awesome! You should make a version of Mr. Fantastic when he isn't stretched out and put them side by side.

That looks great! I would love to see what the card for that would look like.

I always thought it would be neat to have the Mego figure have telescoping arms like a type one would find on a TV antenna, but then the elbows wouldn't be able to move.

Perfect costume. Must've been a be-otch to get that tight a fit on an odd shape.

Really sweet work on this piece, Jason! He looks exactly how I hoped a Mr. Fantastic would look! You always do a killer job on the suits as well. Dunno what kind of fabric you use (unstable molecules, perhaps) but it always brings your pieces a real class and unique look. BTW, loved the first few behind-the-scenes looks, too!
