What is Articulated Comic Book Art?
I dub this Batman Week here at Mint Condition Customs, and to celebrate it I bring you not, not two, but three new customs! This week I have a new custom Deadshot figure, based on his appearance in the Gotham Knight animated feature, a custom Arkham Asylum Joker figure that I added lots of new articulation too, and an Arkham Origins style Deathstroke, complete with unmasked Slade Wilson head! Be sure to click the links to see the full photo sets and descriptions for how each custom was made. Thanks for looking!
And these are also currently for auction on eBay. Just click each photo below to go to the corresponding page on eBay. If you’re interested, feel free to bid. If you know someone who might be, please pass the link along. Thanks for looking!
I’ve always loved the design of the Arkham Asylum Joker figure, but being a DC Direct figure it was severely lacking in the articulation. I aimed to change that, so I took the existing figure and made him really poseable. I shaved away some plastic inside the shoulders and hips and greatly improved their range of motion. I also sliced the arms and legs and made some bicep and thigh swivels, and I popped apart the torso from the legs and made a waist rotator joint (that’s right, the original figure couldn’t even turn at the waist!). So now that the Joker can actually move, he’s ready take on the Batman as the Clown Prince of Crime!
Hot Toys posted a teaser on their Facebook page of an upcoming figure, but it’s cloaked in mystery. They haven’t revealed what the figure is, but most fans seem to be speculating that it’s a figure of The Crow, as portrayed by the late Brandon Lee from the 1994 movie of the same name. I certainly hope so, because that would be amazing!
