    Supermanlogo Me Am Not Copying Other Custom Idea!

    So I tried something a bit different this time. Rather than a straight up custom, I decided to mash together different versions into my ideal version.

    I loved the FTC Bizarro but the Super Friends head was better and he needed white hands, not grey. Mashed these two versions together into what I now consider the Bizarro i dreamt about as a boy.

    As for Brianiac, FTC’s Martian-sized head bugged me, so I repainted my old custom Brainiac I did years ago, swapped him on a vintage body and stole Mattel’s Martian Manhunter bodysuit so he wouldn’t have bare legs. Credit for this idea goes to the other awesome Brainac posted earlier this week who pulled off a great version I wanted to mimic.

    I’m happy with how they both turned out.

    Now, I’m looking at some other possible mash ups. Maybe Green Lantern or Aquaman??

    I did a mash-up using a Mego and a mattel and got this. Looks better than the original IMO

    EMCE/DST Steve Rogers's head also makes a good Aquaman.

    I used the Matty Aquaman head for FF's Johnny Storm alter-ego.
