|It's time to go
back, way back, back to the day's of Chris Galdieri's Scratchbuilder's Toolbox
column. That's where I first saw this custom, and in the days of the
limited TJ figures, it was inspired.
He was one of the first customs Chip and I ever tried, and we were pretty pleased with how he was turning out, but unfortunately, before I ever got his cape to work, Hasbro released their own Martian Manhunter figure, making ours feel moot.
Doing some clean-up of custom central recently, I found several unfinished customs, this one among them. He looked so sad, laying there 90% finished, but still not among his peers on this website. So I decided to go ahead and polish him up, finish the cape, and get him on the web. If I remember who did what correctly, Chip cut off Hawkman's wings and hair, sculpted a brow, and trimmed down the circular chest symbol and boots, while I did the painting and building the cape collar.
