Incredible Hercules Comic Book Bind

Here we have my second comic book bind which is a collection of Incredible Hercules.  I was intrigued by the character of Amadeus Cho and then later really started digging the story and all the characters.  I'm slightly disappointed that the bind didn't turn out as well as X-men: Second Coming, but still pretty awesome to have it all in one book.  This was my first bind made from trade paperbacks and I wasn't as careful in separating the pages.  The bindery was probably a little scared to trim the pages since they seemed to be all different sizes.  I love the clean look on the spine though.  So without further ado.  Here's my Incredible Hercules bind.

This collection has Incredible Hercules #112-141 and Hercules: Fall of an Avenger #1 and 2.

My first comic book bind. X-men Second Coming

Ok so I know this isn't a custom action figure, but I've recently started getting into the world of comic book binding. Basically I got a collection of comic books that I collected over the last year or so and took it to a book bindery to get bound. Why get them bound you ask? For me there are three reasons.

  1. It's a nice way of displaying your comic book collections on a bookshelf.
  2. Getting all the issues bound into one book takes up less space than to have it in a box with bags and boards.
  3. I can have the collection in the order I want it and throw in any extra issues I want.
So here it is. X-men: Second Coming...

And here's a list of all the issues in the collection and the order I have it in...

X-men: Second Coming #1
Uncanny X-men #523
New Mutants #12
X-men Legacy #235
X-Force #26
Uncanny X-men #524
X-men: Second Coming Prepare #1 (The part where they are interviewing people)
X-men: Hellbound #1
New Mutants #13
X-men: Second Coming Revelations Blind Science #1
X-men Legacy #236
X-Force #27
X-men: Hellbound #2
X-men: Hellbound #3
Uncanny X-men #525
New Mutants #14
X-men Legacy #237
X-Force #28
X-men: Second Coming #2
Uncanny X-men: The Heroic Age #1
Wolverine Weapon X #16
X-men: Second Coming Prepare (portion where they talk about the Phoenix in general)
X-men: Phoenix Force Handbook (2 pages about Hope)

Mighty Bluebeam Action Figure

This commission job kind of came on a whim. Basically I was on the website of a particular PDF editing software that I use at work called Bluebeam. To make a long story short I saw on their website that they had a mascot super hero on their twitter backround so I just contacted them to see if they were interested in me making an action figure of their character.

Mighty Bluebeam was created from a Marvel Legends Yellowjacket action figure. I sculpted all the parts of the head and the rest was pretty much a repaint.



They were pretty happy with the results. They even blogged about here!

Warpath X-Force Action Figure (black and gray costume)

Ever since Messiah War I've been a big fan of the new X-Force team. So I'm going to work my way into making the entire team. The first one to be made is Warpath. Warpath was made from a Marvel Legends Doc Samson with a Marvel Legends Hulkling legs. The knives are modified Legendary Heroes Clownface knives.

Jake and Lynne Action Figures

This next commission job was a wedding gift for one of my best friends Lynne and her now husband Jake.

Basically I decided to put the lovely couple in super hero form, so I got my friend from Havana Designs to draw me a super hero caricatures of them and I'd make the action figures of that picture. I gave her the color scheme they wanted, the weapons used, and the general costume design. Lynne wanted a skirt and cape, and Jake wanted a cape and battleaxe. From there Havana created this...

I had to use a mix of parts and due to being a bit rushed to get this done before their wedding I completely forgot to take prelim pictures.

So for my friend Lynne I used a Marvel Legends 2-pack Elektra for the body followed by the head of an ML X-23. The hair, nose, and gold amulet were sculpted. The cape, sword, and shield came from a ML Taskmaster and were modified to look more like the picture. The skirt came from an ML Dr. Doom.



For Jake I used a ML Antman for the base and an Aquaman head. The green sashes, gold amulet, knee pads, and pointy things on the gloves were all sculpted. I took the cape from a ML Black Panther and the battleaxe from an ML Thor.



There you have it. Lynne and Jake back to back ready to take on whatever life throws at them with their weapons of mass destruction. Congratulations you two!!!
