    Some Legionnaires -- Updated

    I don't know if we will ever see any (FTC) Legion of Super-Heroes, so when I see a possibility, I try and go for it.

    Here are the first two I am working on, plus Superboy:

    Suits by megowgsh and bleit1701, plus parts, probably from CTVT.

    I had the Ultra Boy suit for a while and a decent head, but as a non-customizer, or a super simple one, I never got around to trying to paint it. When I saw the Chachi, I thought he made a good Jo Nah. I just need to add the red to his boot tops.

    When I first saw the new Mego Kris Munroe, I thought Supergirl, but changed my mind. Then I thought... Saturn Girl! I still need to make/get a costume logo and I wish someone made taller white boots for females, but I am pretty happy with how this came out.

    Superboy, I just added red shorts because I could not rip the belt seams off the suit, so I just covered them up.

    I think Mego Kelly Bundy would make a good Dream Girl, so she may be next.

    Thanks for looking!

    There are so many figures I wish FTC would do. From 1938 to now.

    I doubt I'll see even a fraction of them.

    That said, your customs are outstanding.

    Very nice versions of Imra and Jo. FTC should definitely take note.

    Those really came out nice, and I agree with the above, FTC should give this some thought.

    Ultra Boy is one of my favorites, and you did him justice. Great job!

    I contacted FTC and suggested they carry a LSH Line using the Teen Bodies for the SA version of the characters and the 8 inch bodies for the BA versions. No response.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate the teen bodies on the old teen titans, they look more like 10 year olds than teens, don't send the legion down that wrong route. If they don't make a larger teen body just make everyone 8".

    They are getting harder to find but the Original FTC stooge body , made before the CTVT debut, is right in between the 8 inch male body and the Titan body.

    My Legion of Super-Heroes are slowly building. Here is the latest group shot:

    Custom Legion of Super-Heroes.jpg

    Still a lot of work to do...

    Superboy: FTC Superboy with red shorts over top of the suit.

    Dream Girl: Just got this suit custom made from bleit1701. NuMego Kelly Bundy is the base body here with NuMego white boots. My idea for her arm bands didn't work, so I have to figure that out. Maybe white vinyl to match the suit.

    Lightning Lad: bleit1701 suit again, this time from eBay. I put this on a Type S body. The head is a Zica head that I got from either CTVT or 8 Inch SuperStore. I might replace it with a more 70's long hair head one day. I also added CTVT white gauntlets, with white hands, of course. Basically, Garth is done.

    Saturn Girl: Yet ANOTHER bleit1701 suit, this one was custom made. She still needs her chest logo, but I added longer boots, which look way better. This is a NuMego Kris Munroe. Her hair is a mess, so I might swap to a better, cleaner version of Kris I have carded.

    Ultra Boy: No updates from the last picture. this is a MegoWGSH suit on a NuMego Chachi figure. I still need to add the red top to the Castaway boots.

    I have a bleit1701 Mon-El suit too and a great head for it, but the head needs to be painted. I will probably reach out to someone here eventually to see if I can get it painted.

    It's been a fun day, finally finding time to work on some customs.
