CUSTOM ZARTAN COBRA G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Something new for 2018!
This Zartan custom was sitting on the bench for a while; but I honestly had fun working on it.
The base figure was Marvel Legends Wonderman. The hood and belt came from Taskmaster. The bow came from Hawkeye, and I had to sculpt everything else [boots, gauntlets, body armor, gun holsters, looping sword holsters, long quiver and long arrows etc]. His three arrows were made long on purpose [via the interior ink barrels of clicky pens], so that he could hold them in a dynamic pose. The bow was heavily customized as well.

After sculpting, Zartan was hand-painted with Tamiya acrylics and I  painted his eyes white in their cores [thus getting rid of the former red], before adding the classic black face paint to him.

He carries about 5 guns and two swords, along with his customized bow and 3 heat-seeking arrows. The large "WTF JUDGE Dredd HandGun" held in his right hand is the only weapon that can't be stored on his body via a magnet or holster.
The last three pics show his back without the custom rectangular quiver, so that you can see the large machine gun being vertically stored via a magnet, as well as a hidden handgun behind his belt. Stay tuned for more!

CUSTOM ELENA EDEN V3 TOY BY DSNG! [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE]

Another one from 2017. This is one of my Original Characters, Elena Eden. I’ve posted about 2 other toy versions of her in the past.

Elena is one of the main characters from the DSNG Sci Fi Series, currently a set of mature ebooks available at Amazon.com. She is a supermodel / entrepreneur and the girlfriend of General Obed Primon [one of my super soldiers]. And Obed is a friend of Prince Azzar, the main character in DSNG.

The recipe was quite simple; the base body was Marvel Legends Captain Marvel and the upper body was Thundra. Her arms were from Lady Thor and the gripping hands were Thundra. Sculpted her feminine features, and also sculpted the rest of her costume, including her hair, boots, gun holsters, thigh straps etc. Her belt was from Thundra, while the pouches were sculpted from Milliput putty.

Tamiya paints were used to hand-paint her. And she has four guns and one sword, held to her back via a magnet. Her ponytail is held by a magnet as well. The original DSNG blog article on Elena is over Here. Enjoy!

CUSTOM HARLEY QUINN TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new custom for 2017! Presenting my hybrid version of Harley Quinn!
I have just between 5 – 7 favorite DC Comics characters and Harley is one of them. This one took a few months, since I finished her and then still had a feeling that something was missing. Eventually I pulled her out a few days ago and added the silver pocket chain and an extra gun.

The mixed base model for this Harley Quinn custom was obtained from: Marvel Legends Spider-Woman [Thanos Wave] for the torso and legs, while the top/bust was Marvel Legends Thundra. Plus one arm came from Thundra and the other arm came from Lady Thor. The head came from Black Cat. And I had to sculpt the “dangling jingles” and the balls for her head, from green stuff putty.

Her boots, her chest, and other features of her costume were fully sculpted. I made her voluptuous; my custom, my choice... And then I used Tamiya paints for coloring her. Gloss Red was used to highlight certain features on her body.

 Her clown hammer is very heavy. It was created from a slim base sledge hammer that comes from one of the WWE HHH toys. And I sculpted the enhanced center piece, along with the heavy round mallets fixed on either end [from soda bottle lids] and I added all of the blingy gems, and colored the gems gloss red. She can hold it, but it weighs her hand down.

For her weapons, my Harley Quinn has three guns and one dagger [down at her right boot], plus the heavy hammer. And there is a custom holster placed upon her back, created from cardboard, for storing one of the guns.

Lastly, I added a few pics of the DC Icons Harley Quinn, for size and design comparisons. Stay tuned for more...
