    Black Adam and Uncle Dudley. Adam uses the recent Mego head with the hair built up; he has often been portrayed with a long head, so this bulking up worked and made the new noggin scalable with the classic stuff (tried the same with the Big Red Cheese, but the new figure's face is just too small). The rest of his costume is made the same as the Marvels. Uncle Dudley uses the Wizard of Oz' head with re-sculpted hair. I was trying to give the feel that this isn't a "real" Marvel family costume conjured by the magic word. Dudley's usually portrayed with his cape just having a rope tie in the front, and some early appearances had the costume rather ill fitting, which conveys what I wanted. He uses a standard Mego fat body.

    Nicely done. There are those who say Mary was modeled on Judy Garland (which definitely works but isn't as clearly confirmed as the Fred MacMurray story), so I've always thought a Dorothy would work well. For that matter, the Wizard for Uncle Dudley works well, as you show.

    Almost forgot Shazam himself! The old wizard is made from Capt. Picard on a classic Mego body with Picard arms. He swiped Friar Tuck's shoes (I have another pair in a parts bag somewhere). His beard is just white fur cut and glued into place.
