    Thanks so much!

    With all of the amazing in-progress photos of MEGO customizations that have been published on this message board over the years, a picture book is definitely something that should / could happen!

    She worked out really well! Thanks for asking! "She" (Batgirl, Barbara Gordon, Harley Quinn, and Catwoman) is still sitting around nude since I have been un-able to get her clothing finished yet. But I'm, gettin' there.

    Like a lot of folks, I took a MAJOR hit last year in terms of income, and it really slowed down my customizing. But I'm trying to ramp things back up.

    This is actually a pretty old custom figure (created back in 2003).

    What this thread covers is the RE-VISIT of this custom action figure when I decided to build him this more poseable body (back in 2009).

    When he's dressed he looks exactly like this:

    Very well done! I immediately recognized the use of the Jakks wrestling figures parts as I have a ton myself, left over from my wrestling figure customizing days. I can't wait to see the finished product!
