Batman Beyond custom action figure by Jedd-the-Jedi
Batman Beyond custom action figure
I've always thought the Injustice Green Lantern figure would make a great base figure, initially for Nightwing, but looking at it closely, I thought it would fit Batman Beyond even better. It's got a great techno-organic aesthetic going which would be a cool material for a future Batsuit. I removed torso armour and took the head from a DC Superheroes-era Batman. The hands were from Movie Electro with the gauntlet spikes from Arkham Origins Batman. Sculpted over the neck and then sculpted-on Bat symbol and belt. Used Glossy red for the symbol, gunmetal paint for the gauntlets and boots. Thanks for looking!

Mr. Freeze Custom Action Figure before and after by Jedd-the-Jedi
Mr. Freeze Custom Action Figure before and after
Like many, many DC fans, I bemoned the loss of DCUC and was disappointed by its ostensible replacement in the 6 inch scale, Mattel's DC Total Heroes. They're supposed to cater to both the kid market and the collector market at the same time, but that's really not how it works. The one that hit the hardest was seeing the amazing Batman Beyond set with all the accessories, including The Atom and an old Bruce Wayne head. How wonderful it would've been if that were DCUC! 

Anyway, I digress. The one Total Heroes figure I really like is the Mr. Freeze. The cartoony proportions are there, but not as evident as with the other figures because he is clad in his armoured containment suit. When I found one at a decent price, I immediately set about modding it. I couldn't do anything about the giant forearms and lower legs, but decided there was enough I liked about them to keep and that a repaint would suffice. In addition to a repaint, I sculpted on an "arc reactor"-type feature on the chest and also swapped the head for that from a Marvel Legends Infinite movie series Electro. I sculpted on the goggles, modified the fit of the head and repainted it. It's a mite too small but I think it works better than the cartoony original head. It was the head that was the thing that made the figure so stylised to begin with. Swapped the hands for those from a bootleg Batman. Thought it was odd that in the original figure, he came with an open left hand and a closed fist. Mr. Freeze is right-handed. 

I absolutely love the design of the Freeze Gun accessory that came with this figure so I gave it a repaint. I added on a removable "freeze blast" effect, made from a straw, epoxy putty and stirring sticks that I cut up and arranged to look like ice shards. 

Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone, Jedd from Singapore here! I'm a die-hard Batman and Star Wars fan, and am currently working as a contributor/writer to Singapore's F*** Movie Magazine (the three asterisks stand for 'film', 'fame' and 'fact') I really enjoy writing and have been writing movie reviews for fun since I was 12, and am grateful to be doing so semi-professionally now. I'm not a born, gifted artist - I'm terrible at drawing, but I have an interest in it and have tried to do what I can with pencils and pieces of paper, as well as digital tablets and monitors a little while after that. I've been told many times that I'm terrible at it, but it is just for fun. More recently, I've taken an interest in action figure customization, a hobby that was born out of a desire to create. Action figures are not meant to be taken apart or modified and thus it takes more skill and tools to customize an action figure compared to say, creating a custom LEGO creation, but I've been learning the tricks of the trade and am slowly getting the hang of it. I've been on DeviantArt since 2007 and am grateful to anyone who drops by, and even more grateful to the few who comment/fave my pieces! God bless and have yourself a good one.
