    Bat FF Aquaman & E2 Robin

    Here are my FF Aquaman & E2 Robin. I need to redo the mask on the Robin and redo Aquaman's hair. The boxes are done by the Toyroom.

    COOL! Aquaman is tough Jim Aparo style! He is tired of the fish jokes so look out Super Villians! Nice job on costume too.

    Great job. Too bad Mego didn't create a FF Aquaman to get rid of all the extra parts they evidently had left. It would have resulted in another bad guy, most likely someone like Manta, also with FF action. Counting the UK releases he was the only Super Friend that was missed other than Wonder Woman. I still think a FF Flash would be cool. The action could not only be for fighting, but for running. Change the color to yellow and Professor Zoom and he could have fought and raced.
    It's not a doll it's an action figure.

    Thanks, I used the costume from the Retro Aquaman. I had to modify it a little but it fits and works really well. I am thinking of what to do next. Maybe a FF Thor.

    I absolutely LOVE those customs. Very nicely done. I had hoped Mattel would keep the classic Mego Aquaman head for the Retro figure. This is exactly the way he should look. Great job.

    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    I think those are terrific, incl. the boxes.

    Did you have to alter Aquaman's belt much? I think the Palitoy FF Capt. America only had a half-belt, in the front.
    WANTED: RM Robin & P. Parker heads; Batman "waffle" gloves; mint Wolfman tights; Knights', Blackbeard & Conan swords; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; T1 GGoblin body (in good shape but can restring); POTA Soldier Ape minty bandolier; POTA T2 tan & brown bodies; POTA Stallion complete set of tack; Fighting Furies Spanish & Buccaneer outfits & boxed Hook; Bulletman!

    Thank you for your kind appreciation. I thought a fist fighter would be cool for Aquaman.

    I unstitched the back about half way down through the belt. It loosened it up enough to make the way the belt was placed look good. I had to restitch it to make sure it didn't unravel. I also had to unstitch the sleeves to remove the sewn in gloves. I restitched the sleeves and it looks really good with the Mego gloves. It didn't need to have the stitching around the wrists like on the original. I had to mix color to redo his hair. It is a little more yellow now, but looks like the Aquaman on the box. I just have to clear coat the head. I will post more pics in the completed customs once I am done with him.

    I am on a fist fighter craze. I just finished a fist fighter Shazam. I used the head and costume from the Retro Action and just need to paint the face a flesh color to go with the hands. I am also working on the fist fighter Black Adam as well. I will be getting boxes for these soon too. Pics to follow.
