Mr. Sinister is another piece in a long line of customs for a client of mine trying to complete his Toybiz Age of Apocalypse collection. Mr. Sinister was made using oddly enough, a Toybiz AoA Magneto figure with the arms from a Toybiz Kane action figure.
I sanded down the big rivets on Magneto’s collar and replaced his arms with the arms from the Kane figure. For his legs, I took my engraving bit and made the segments in his legs myself to match Sinister’s appearance. The shoulder pads were made with a combination of foam and strips of styrene. The cape was made with thick strips of styrene inserted into his back and strips of clear vinyl glued on top to get the appearance of his cape going up and then falling down his back.
The figure was completely painted with Testors Model Masters paints, matching the detailing and design of Mr. Sinister’s appearance in the Age of Apocalypse storyline. This is easily my favorite one out of all the Age of Apocalypse customs that I’ve done so far.
