Welp this is my first custom progress thread so here we go:
This is one guy that I've been wanting to do for a while but never found the right parts. I was browsing around on the internet and stubbled upon the "Marvel The Avengers Repulsor Strike Iron Man Mark VII Action Figure."
Here's a link so you can see an assembelled one :http://www.walmart.com/ip/Marvel-The...em+Description
I thought he was perfect once i saw him. So I instantly ran to my closest Wal-Mart, and bought him. I quickly tore into him, and after 3 hours of solid work, this is how he came out so far.
And remember, everything snaps together so its pretty solid, so EVERYTHING requires ALOT of dremeling.
Below are an already cut arm, and a "still in one piece arm." I cut the arm into "Mego Size" and i shaped accordingly.
Here's the arm by it's self
Now the legs were more of a challenge. Here's a pic of a dremeled leg piece and a non-dremeled
This picture shows how much cutting I had to do.
The calf pieces are the same way as the others, but heres a semi completed leg.
When I first saw the figure in person, I was a little worried. The head looked too small. But when i compared it to other Mego heads, it was a little smaller, but it was bigger then the Zombie heads from the BYOZ kits so it wasn't too bad.
Welp I'll try to get you guys updated, there's still ALOT of work to be done. And I apologize for the crapy pictures.
