    The Marvel Family

    The Big Red Cheese, the original Captain Marvel. Mattel retro head repianted to have a classic Mego skin tone. Costume is made basically like the previous Lt. Marvel. The black dashes down the front of the boots is printed out from Photoshop and cut into a narrow strip, then glued on.

    Nice figure. Definitely reminds me of the early comics.

    The head really suffers from the anemic skin tone it originally had. The detail is much better and sharper than it appears to be on first sight. It's a solid sculpt.

    I know what you--I used tan dye to tint some of my Mattel heads and it really brought out the detail.

    Ah, good, that tells me the dye works on the Mattel heads. I'd definitely rather dye than paint the heads; keeping the paint smooth is a big challenge.

    Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel, Jr. Mary uses a modified Dorothy head and standard Mego female body. Junior uses an old Mego Lion Rock 6" body and a modded Aqualad head from Classic TV Toys. Almost forgot the decos on his cape when I went to take pics.
