Green is the New Black

I make custom HeroClix (mostly of Green Lanterns and related characters) and take posed photos of my action figures. I tend to make customs in bursts, so this page may go un-updated for some time only to have a half dozen figures go up in one day.

Wirecutters are the most useful tool ever

Lessons I have learned while making HeroClix into minis for use in a Mutants and Masterminds game:


  • Wire cutters are an excellent way to remove pesky superhero limbs.
  • When snipping off limbs, hold on to the body, or else the little thing will go flying. (Somewhere in my apartment, there is a limbless torso of poor Jack Knight.)
  • Never ever throw leftover body parts away. An unneeded head from projects past may be just the thing you need to finish a character later.
  • making a small pool of Superglue in a sacrificial tin and dipping a figure's surfaces into it is a lot easier than trying to put glue on the figure directly from the tube, no matter how small the nib is.
  • You will, eventually, get used to the pain of Supergluing your fingertips together.
  • Well, sort of.


The fact that I may have to return my borrowed digital camera may logjam entries here for a while. However, this also means there will be an explosion of entries once I get my hands on a new camera. Stay tuned.

    Hi, my name is Andrew. I'm a big, gay, Green Lantern fan myself (and X-Men lol)... Anyway, I just recently discovered your blog. I think it's great, and your HeroClix's too.

    Keep it up. :)
