Phoenix, Age of Apocalypse Style – Created May 28, 2011

<< Back to Custom Figure Archive

*** Head on over to my Ebay Auctions to see what’s available this week, or commission me if you’d like your very own custom action figure like this one. ***

This is the fourth piece for my customer wanting to complete his Toybiz X-Men Age of Apocalypse collection. I made AoA Phoenix using the body from the Battle Blasters Jean Grey and the head from the old Toybiz Elektra.

I painted her up matching Phoenix’s outfit in the Age of Apocalypse storyline and even included a backdrop. I cut out the shape from an action figure blister pack and painted the flaming phoenix with several layers of clear red and yellow, and insignia red, orange, and insignia yellow. All paints were Testors Model Masters. This is actually my favorite custom I’ve done in this lineup yet and it really shows how much you can get out of the old Toybiz figures.

  1. Hi. I’ve been looking for someone to do 2 custom figures for me and I came across your site. I’m interested in having the Phoenix Marvel Legends figure done as a repainted Dark Phoenix and a White Phoenix custom. I was wondering if this would be possible to do? I’d like them to be different from the Green Phoenix figure so besides repainting them, can you also do different head pieces for them? Maybe change their eyes to make Dark Phoenix have evil looking white eyes and White Phoenix with fiery, orange eyes? Even the hair on them could be different if it was possible for you to do. Also, how do u do the figures? Do I send the 2 figures I have to you and you customize them for me? I’m very open to ideas for the figures I’d like done that you may have. Also, what is your price for doing the two figures for me? Thank you for your time and for reading this.
