Been wanting to do X-men for years, since my first custom attempts in fact. Never got around to it. Then I saw what Brian Leitner was doing with his stuff, and it was so near to what I had in my head, I just bought a couple of his complete customs. Cyclops, Phoenix, Storm and Colosuss are all Brian. Jim Hampton did his Nightcrawler kit and it was another one that hit the mark for me, but being too busy to sew, I asked Brian if he had a Nightcrawler suit in the works. He did. All I had to do was paint the head. Finally the one I finished tonight and actually had to do something on... Wolverine. I wanted the brown version, that's the way I remember him and that's how he was on the X-team I'm most fond of. Brian was up to the challenge of the suit and I actually had to adapt boots, claws AND paint the head. Jeez, it's getting so a guy actually has to do something himself around here to make a custom!
I think the head for Wolverine came from Reproheads. Not quite sure. Someone sent me a few heads to paint a couple years ago then disappeared without paying, so I ended up with this one and liked it.
So here are the X-men I've always wanted. I didn't do much, but that doesn't make displaying them any less enjoyable!
