There the white lego rubber bands from the x wing kit etc. I like how they look like elongated gloves :)
And thank your for the compliment.

I love that Zatanna. :wub: I like that Hush too, since I actually have those parts. (That might be the first time I actually use something in this topic. :grin: )

What's the difference with Black Widow? Does she have Phoenix's hairpiece? :sceptic: If not, I can't tell what the difference(s) is/are, but does look better. I hardly think it's worth it if it is Phoenix's hair though. :grin:

Black Widow looks good, but I would... use a different head! Just any flesh female head without cheekbones! :sick:

It is Phoenix's hairpiece, but I wish I had Phoenix. I actually Bricklinked the piece really cheap. I think it may have been a dud Poison Ivy hairpiece (the leaves weren't printed on) or some one was being really generous.

Thanks for the feedback, I was thinking to use a different headpiece but I wanted to see what you guys thought. I'll try with Elizabeth Swann's headpiece.

EDIT: I made the new Black Widow and some others:

and Ra's al Ghul

and Alfred

(yes, my camera blurred this shot before it ran out of battery :sceptic:)

I find the best head to use is Elizabeth Swan from POTC theme. The face looks a lot like Scarlet Johanson when on the Black Widow torso and with the hair. I will try to post some pics tomorrow.
Edit: looks like WallE2624 had the same idea and beat me to it  :laugh: .

Love the taskmaster but your gambit is a work of art!
What torso and legs did you use? And the clock peices?

Thanks!

I don't remember what some of the pieces are from (like the head), but the torso and the legs are from Alien Conquest aliens (with a plain black crotch), the arms are from CMF Series 6 punk rocker/skater, the brown cloak I think is from a troll warlock, and the red cloak piece is from Palpatine from (I think the Republic Ship) and to top it off, the pink stud is from the Alien Villainess from CMF Series 8.  :)

Thanks, for my gambit i was thinking of using the torso of the toy story villain (forget his name, begins with z).
I really like the red shoulder peice too, very creative, the hair really suits the character.

I made a bricklink purchase the other day and impromptu threw together an ant man that im sure will impress too :) (will post asap)

I’m a fan of purist figures—in part due to my dislike of figures which look covered in paint, and in part because I’m not good enough at painting to make my own!—and so looking for purist designs of my favorite Legion of Doom villains is hard.

I’m trying to create a complete Legion of Doom, preferably with official figures, but as we all know there are just not enough of them! And so I’ve been making a few of my own. Below are purist customs of Black Manta and Gorilla Grodd. Manta is a simple figure with a brick and two dish pieces; and Grodd is a beefed up Gorilla Suit-Guy with the new purple cape from the Series 8 Alien Queen.

Posted Image

Below is a creation (Which I guess you could call a figure—but I want to show him off anyways) of the Brain—whom I’m adding to my personal Legion of Doom.

Posted Image

Anyways Enjoy! And if anyone has any ideas for a purist Sinestro or Cheetah I’d sure like to know about them!

I think every Marvel fan jumped thought Scott Summers when we say the Hawkeye head. I was no different. Cyclops is one of my favorite X-Men, and I needed to have him to antagonize Wolvy.

Tonight I lucked out in finding a way to make him a purist visor. I took the Lego visor which already sorta looks like his visor and clipped it onto a helmet upside down.

Posted Image

This prevents it from closing all the way over his face, leaving his mouth showing, and still lining up the visor opening with his eye line.

It's not perfect, but it's a decent purist solution.

You certainly have a lot of Marvel figures. Very good job ReZourceman.

Has anyone else seen the new LoC sets? The minifigs hold a lot of potential for some purist minifigures. The crocodile, for example, looks like it will make a very good Killer Croc.
