    MOTUC Spider-Man Crossover

    Wanted to make a figure for my 4yr old son who is just starting to get into superheroes and is still a little young for MOTU Classics, but I thought this might be a cool intro for him. He likes Spider-Man so even though I have already bought official Marvel versions, he gets his own custom version first. Used MOTUC The Mighty Spector as a base, added Demo-Man shins/lower legs, and Stratos sock feet. Painted Spidey in classic red and blue colors with black outline minus the black webs on the classic suit.....because I'm not that good at fine details, but you get the idea. I like how he turned out and he's easy to repaint should my son really trash him up because this is meant to be played with and not displayed. Pictured with Marvel Legends Spiderman Classics Series II Rhino to show that Spidey isn't a skinny teenager anymore. Any suggestions/critiques would be welcomed because I'm still learning so I can use all the help you can give me!

    Its a pretty good paint job. The webs are tough to do but i think he looks like a nice addition to the motuc universe. There's always the inter-dimensional portal to tie the two worlds together.
    Check out my customs. Go on, treat yerself!
    New life into old playsets!

    Best use of a Spector yet! Nice pain job but I'd hit him with a matte sealant or dull-coat to take away a little of that shine.

    I love crossover figures. It'd be cool if you did Ironman or wolverine. I always thought it would be funny to make buzz lightyear from Optikk.

    Thanks! Yeh, I tried painting a couple of thin straight lines and I failed miserably. I can see Spidey vs any MOTUC version of the Sinister Six!

    Yeh, I wasn't a fan of Spector, but he did remind me of GI JOE Snake Eyes. I was thinking a Deadpool custom at first, but my kid only knows Spidey, Batman, Ironman, and Superman at this point. So Spidey it was! I'm gonna go get some matte sealant, think your right that it would look better with less shine.

    So far, and the more he sees Spiderman clothing, backpacks, cups, toys, he knows I made him one! He says he has Spiderman every time he sees him at the stores!

    Ironman would be sweet, but I especially like that Wolverine idea. I think I will start looking for some spare parts to come up with a MOTUC Wolverine. Head: modified Tri-Klops or Trap Jaw (Kronis). Torso: Zodac. Arms: Zodac or Tri-Klops. Legs: not quite sure....gotta look at them. Claws....similar to Draego-Man's Horns.
