I was looking at a pile of extra parts and pieces and was struck by the urge to customize out of my comfort zone. I thought I would create my own hero and go from there. The inspiration was the Castaway Toys head sculpted by Corey Wood. From there Ed Nagy hooked me up with some printed fabric for a cape, Brian Leitner took my drawings and created the suit and Anthony (The Toyroom) Durso hooked me up with a box and chest emblem.

Super Spiderman is based on the Amalgam Series that combined DC and Marvel heroes. The other characters pictured on the box are from the actual series.

Here go my attempts at submitting pictures:

Hey, this is really cool. Could you post another pic of the sides of the box, I can't see the other amalgam heroes. This could be a fun series to customize ;)

Excellent!!! I keep forgetting about how cool some of the Amalgam characters were.

Looks AMAZING and SUPER, Ron!

The other side pics are:
Dr. Strangefate (Dr. Strange + Dr. Fate)
Captain Marvel (Shazam version + 60s Marvel Kree version)
Aqua-Mariner (Aquaman + Sub-Mariner)
Iron Lantern (Iron Man + Green Lantern)
Angelhawk (Angel of the X-Men + Hawkman)
Thorion (Thor + Orion of the New Gods)

The cool thing about Amalgam is there are tons more "established" characters or you can go the Ron route and create your own.

Ok, (this is me, the comic book ignorant), this is a cross between Supes and Spidey, right? Interesting. It kinda reminds me of Captain America (perhaps it's the face mold.) Good job. :spidey:

Iron Lantern? That one sounds interesting, for some reason I wanna see him more than the others

Thomas, this is pretty much the same pose I used for the box...

So, basically it's a green Iron Man. I'm a bit disappointed. Not sure what I was expecting, but not just simply IM in another color :please:

^ Yeah but the power battery is built into his chest plate and he utilizes the emerald energy normally found in a GL ring. So it's different that just another colored armor...all of the Amalgam characters take various aspects from Marvel and DC characters, with some working better than others. The Iron Lantern one-shot was a fun read combining the Silver Age aspects of IM and GL. Madame Masque was morphed with Star Sapphire (Madame Sapphire), MODOK with Hector Hammond (H.E.C.T.O.R.), Mandarin with Sinestro (Mandarinestro!).

Here is the box art that I said I was going to put up. I think there are some interesting characters.

At some point I may do the Iron Lantern as well as the Aqua-Mariner.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Thanks for those pics, some really interesting characters there, I especially like Thorion and Dr. Strangefate. Why not do them all? This would certainly make a fun series

Very Nice!! Great job to both yourself and The Toyroom on the figure and the box. How about Plastic Man and Mr. Fantastic which would give us Mr. Plastastic or Mr. Fanplastic...This could go on for a while...LOL!!
