Welcome to the home of pulpy fiction productions corner for customs.

So here it is, I'm a graphic artist and illustrator located in Canada. I love animation, comics, sci fi, fantasy, movies, and music. On my spare time I customize action figures for the fun of it. My customs mainly focus on comic and movie characters, but that's not all I do. I'm an articulation nut, so the more the better, one of the reasons I love working with Marvel Legends and DC Universe figures.

On this blog, I'll be giving the lowdown of what I'm working on, what I'm thinking about doing, and how I plan to take over the world (all super heroes and would be vigilantes, please disregard this site).

If you have any questions, comments, or inquiries please feel free to email me at: pulpyfiction@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!

The Dark Knight Dynamic Duo - Batman & Carrie Kelley Robin

The Dark Knight Dynamic Duo - Batman & Carrie Kelley Robin

Custom Type: Action Figure
Toy SeriesBatman
Base Figure:  DCD TDKR Batman/Piledriver -DCD TDKR Robin/X23
Height:  6.5 inches - 5 inches
Articulation:  25 points/23 points

One of the most quintessential Batman Books of all time, Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns is perhaps my personal favourite. I liked the DCD versions, they look great, but I needed better articulation. So this is what I came up with.

Batman- I took the DCD torso and fit the ML Piledriver arms and fit them in, and put the batman gloves on piledriver's forearms. Then I fit the crotch and legs into the Batman torso. I also added the tops of the batman boots to the piledriver boots and sculpted them to flush them together. I also added a balljoint to the neck for extra range of movement. Then I tied it together with a repaint.

Robin- Almost the same process as batman. I added a balljoint to the neck. Popped in the arms from x23 to the robin torso. However I added the robin sleves dremeled out over the x23 biceps. Then I added put the x23 crotch and legs to the Robin torso. I used DCU cheetah lower legs, and used DCU deadman feet for the elvan/pixie type shoes. Then I gave her a repaint.

Thanks for checking these guys out!
