very cool wolverine capt mego!! i love the way he looks!
Mar 12, '08, 11:56 PM
Wow, incredible job on Logan! :drool_y: Great dimensionality on the head scupt. Almost expected to see a reflection on the side of the claws. Had to be tough to do them. The costume sewing looks like you did a super-tight job. Do you do the kind of hidden seams that BK does on his figures?
Mar 13, '08, 12:15 AM
No sorry ,but it was Machine sewn .
The seems are very tight and very thin.
So they look pretty sleek.
I like to machine all my suits.
To each his own I supose.
I do have a examples of a hidden seemed suit I made.
example: The green Goblin.
He has no seems down the out sides of legs or down his back.
The green scaled fabric was printed here at my shop on spandex.
The head is a head shrink I did from a Moldel kit with hydro span.
The body is a modified mego. Thought it would be better if he was thinner.
I like to make them close to what the body type is in the comic.
The punmkin bombs came form russ at the customlab
I made them magnetic and the hand magnetic to hold bombs with out droping them.
The glider is hand crafted here at my shop out of real steel.
I engraved the air cfaft line in wings as well. The gun is steel and rotates.
Anthony at http://www.geocities.com/thetoyroom/
made the cool boxes that go with them.
thanks dude your the best

Best custom Wolverine I've seen ever.

I've been lurking here for awhile, and I gotta say your customs are amazing Captain Mego!
There are so many people with a lot of talent here. I'm really happy I joined!
Now I have to ask: how do you sew a seemless costume for your customs?
Mar 13, '08, 2:44 AM
He is absolutely awesome. I especially love the head sculpt, and the real steel claws. Bravo.

Congrats Chris, that's definitely the best Wolverine I've ever seen.
In that second pic he looks so alive :applause:
Mar 13, '08, 3:32 AM
Nice work, Chris. Really impressed with the one foot stance.
Mar 13, '08, 5:03 AM
Another Home Run!
Mar 13, '08, 5:32 AM
WOW Cap....that's FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mar 13, '08, 5:49 AM
Holy crap! That IS the best Wolverine I've ever seen! I love how you were able to pose him to mimic the box art! I'd be intimidated to have him on the shelf with the other Megos...looks like he'd kill 'em all!
Wow Chris. Another home run!
Mar 13, '08, 8:46 AM
Cap you are incredible! That has to be the best Wolverine ever! The head sculpt, body, costume, top notch as always! I love how the light gleams off the real metal blades. Truly AWESOME JOB!!!
Mar 13, '08, 8:49 AM
Another stellar job Cap - Wolvie is sweet for sure - but I'm partial to that Goblin :wink_y:
Mar 13, '08, 10:25 AM
Fantastic Figure Cap !
Love the Head... it gives the character more so a realistic look rather than a comicbook one. You Suit is very nice as well. Congrats.
Mar 13, '08, 10:55 AM
I always like the work you do with real steel.
How tough would it be to cast Iron Man with Real Steel pieces? I bet it'd be a bugger with all those different curves.
Mar 13, '08, 11:38 AM
Dang! That looks like it was factory manufactured right off the line. Friggin' good! Amazing that you did all that. Super Green Gobby too!
Mar 13, '08, 11:47 AM
Man I love it. That head sculpt is great. A+++ green goblin is particularly cool too. You're work makes me want to quit attempting customs. Just when I thought I was getting better. Very impressive work.
Mar 13, '08, 1:28 PM
Simply STUNNING! Awesome job!
Mar 13, '08, 2:27 PM
he looks ok, i may have to see him closer for an accurate opinion..why dont you send him to me, and i will let ya know how cool he fits in with my other stuff...errr..i mean, how well he looks in person.....
Lordy...that's just perfection.
Mar 13, '08, 5:38 PM
THAT is a auwsome custom from the master his self!!
Mar 13, '08, 7:11 PM
Top notch . . . do we expect less from the master . . . nope!!
Superb job Chris
Mar 13, '08, 7:25 PM

Mar 13, '08, 7:32 PM
Damn!!!! That's FIERCE!!!! why are you not in the Toy Biz we need your skills!!!
Mar 13, '08, 8:25 PM
Top notch Cap !!!
Mar 13, '08, 8:36 PM
This makes my Wolverine look like a mentally handicapped person did it. Wow. I have no words. Simply stunning.
Mar 13, '08, 8:59 PM
The hands feature real steel blades hand crafted and shaped to look like the ones in the comic books.
Caution they are really sharp.
Are you sure that box will be strong enough to hold him :grin:
Why not real adamantium :grin:
Your work is just fantastic.
Mar 14, '08, 4:33 PM
That Wolverine is friggin' awesome!!! I love the real metal claws, and that pose is deadly.
Having said that however...I love your Gobby even more!!!
That glider with box is freaky awesome!!!
You are the new Charlie Flatt for sure.
Mar 15, '08, 7:30 AM
Indeed. It doesn't get any better than these figures.
As a fellow customizer, I know how much work goes into making a figure like this, so my hat's off to you!
Where do I order?:yes:
Mar 15, '08, 8:31 AM
Wow! That's about all I got. Looks store bought/factory made.
Mar 15, '08, 12:38 PM
Excellent job! That is one cool Wolverine.
Just out of curiosity (for someone who is just getting into Mego) how much time did you spent on the custom job ?
Mar 15, '08, 1:14 PM
Great work, once again. What can I say that hasn't already been expressed by others?
With your attention to detail and creative approach to making all of your figures I'm curious if you considered making ol' Wolvie "hairy"? That's the only other touch that would make this figure more perfect. I'm at a loss to even guessing at how hairy arms would be done(painting hair on doesn't seem like the answer on a figure of this quality).
Nice work on the head sculpt by the way.
Mar 15, '08, 11:04 PM
AMAZING Wolverine! (and pretty awesome Goblin as well)
Just incredible and puts one in mind of what all X-Men mego line could've looked like...I can see a derivation of the Batcave/POTA Village turned into the Danger Room.
Any chance we might see some of Wolvie's 1970s buddies...e.g., a Nightcrawler? Just wishin...
Again, an amazing job!

Your work rocks! Thanks for showing us your work. It's great to see you continuing your craft.
Aug 19, '08, 7:10 AM
FANTASTIC Wolvey!!! Love the Goblin as well...great work!! Welcome back Chris!:yes:
Aug 19, '08, 9:00 AM
Those Wolverines are just sick. How did you do those things on his shoulders? That's whats stopping me from finishing mine. Great work.
Aug 19, '08, 8:35 PM
Awesome job Cap! I always look forward to seeing your work. I think it is more fine art then action figure customizing though:grin: Glad to see your back and I am happy your concrete biz is doing well, especially in these rough economic times.

Aug 22, '08, 5:07 PM
Wow, Logan never looked better. Really like the mouth & the claws - real blades Awesome! I did mine with carpet sewing needles back in the 90's because they had the"curve" already built into the needles, but yours are great.
Aug 24, '08, 8:43 PM
That's totally wicked.
Aug 26, '08, 9:05 PM
Hey guys thanks for all the kind words on my work. Its much apreceated.
