View Full Version : A proud father: my son's Hawkman
Jun 10, '09, 9:58 PM
Well this is a proud day for me . . . .
My son finished his first (real) custom figure. Yes dad did help but he painted the head, I touched it up. He cut out the wings, I drew them. At any rate not too bad . . . . I picked up the parts at megomeet from Doc Mego and Bliet. We altered the outfit a little and added the stripes to the boots. Not a hard figure to make at all.

congrats bro,he looks awesome :2thumbsup:
Jun 10, '09, 10:18 PM
Sweet!!! You guys make a formidable customizing team...congrats on a super nice figure.
Jun 10, '09, 10:19 PM
Jim, that's way beyond cool. He's already got the skills and and eye for this stuff. It's even better knowing he can actually play with it if he'd like. Most customizers make show pieces, but this is a functional custom and a great looking one at that.
Jun 10, '09, 10:21 PM
That's what it's all about! The picture with your son speaks volumes.....:yes:
Jun 10, '09, 10:39 PM
Looks like you have some competition Jim. Nice custom of one of my all time favorite characters.
Jun 10, '09, 10:43 PM
That is simply marvelous. Cool custom, cool Dad!

A fantastic intro into the customizing world!!!
I'll bet he gets hooked now...muwahahahahaha.

Great job. Hawky looks awesome.
Jun 10, '09, 11:28 PM
Jim, your son did an awesome job!!! The head paint is better than most of mine. KUDOS!
Jun 11, '09, 12:53 AM
Wow! Nice work.
I like the wings too...I have no doubt thats how Mego would have made them.
Jun 11, '09, 4:00 AM
Nice. love the wing solution, looks Mego-y.

Excellent figure! If I made a Hawkman I would want mine to look exactly like that. Fantastic execution throughout (especially on the paints). I can see Mego making one just like yours. Your son should be very proud! :yes:

Very Megolike!!!!! And Very Cool!!!!:smile:
Jun 11, '09, 7:35 AM
Well done. Great job.
Jun 11, '09, 8:26 AM
Awwwww. That's so neat. My kids just shake their heads while giving me the "crazy old man" look.
I think it's time to apprentice the young man. Get him sweeping the shop floor, threading the sewing machine, and prepping the molds.
That's really cool. Thanks for sharing.

Start them young! That is fantastic. Bravo!!
Jun 11, '09, 2:52 PM
I thank you and Nathan thanks you . . . not a hard figure to do when you have a great suit and head from brian and cool accessories from doc mego. I think that is why he liked it so much as we knocked it out in an evening. These kids today and thier instant gratification needs.

:applause: Very cool Hawkman indeed, congrats to Nathan
Jun 11, '09, 3:25 PM
His Hawkman looks better than mine!

best looking hawkman i've seen in a while
Jun 11, '09, 8:13 PM
Very impressive and just plain cool to see.
Jun 12, '09, 12:19 AM
Thats so Awesome! He looks amazing. What a Fantastic Job. Very Cool :beaming1:
Jun 12, '09, 6:30 AM
That's so awesome to see. He (and you) did a fantastic job together! You both should be proud. Thanks very much for sharing.
Now that he has a taste for it, I hope that your son will want more! It's like a drug, but a drug that's acceptable... well, my ex-wife would disagree with that, but what does she know?! :smiley1:
My son thinks I'm crazy and a dork or whatever for being into this stuff too. I always wished I could have gotten him interested, but no luck. I also wish I had had a cool dad like you. Your son's a very lucky little man. You guys are a great team. Keep up the great work you guys! :2thumbsup:

It's so great to spend time with your kids, and it's down right freaky fun when they take an interest in something you do. And when it's as "geeky" as making dolls and they still want to do it with you, you know you are lucky. Then to top it all off the custom came out sweet!
Jun 14, '09, 12:22 AM
ok, I have to add one more. He put this together yesterday. These were the cast off pieces from my Megomeet Dr. Doom and he added a "practice" cape from last year's sherrif. Not a lot to it but he's on a roll.
thanks for all the great replies . . . he's enjoyed reading them!
Jun 14, '09, 3:46 AM
very cool,and a terrific job!
Jun 14, '09, 8:05 AM
Jun 15, '09, 6:04 PM
OK, I've got to get my kids into this. It's brilliant.
Jun 19, '09, 12:13 PM
Customizing The Next Generation... How cool is that?
Jun 19, '09, 3:42 PM
Wow that is absolutely awesome. He did a great job. I can see there is seriously something to be proud of there. Congrats ! :)
Jun 19, '09, 6:43 PM
I hope you'll let him know how many nice comments he's received so far!! It's really impressive!
