This page will chronicle the making of a custom Banana Man Action Figure.
It all started when I had purchased a few Marvel Legends variants figures that I was going to sell for profit
Don’t worry, no variants were harmed in this production.
We started with a Captain Marvel and Moon Knight from the Marvel Legends MODOK series.
Step 1: The Cape
Tools needed: X-Acto knife, acrylic paint, sponge brush, Super Sculpey, craft glue
I used an X-Acto Knife to cut off the hood, and then I used a sponge brush
A little bit of sculpey to make the cape clips, 15 minutes of baking, yellow
Step 2: The Figure
Tools needed: Sauce pan, stove, Super Sculpey, sculpting tools
I boiled the two figures to soften up the plastic, and I popped the heads off.
Step 3: Bake
Tools needed: Stove or toaster oven
I used a toaster oven to bake the figure at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Paint
Tools needed: Acrylic paint, brushes
I used acrylic paint and painted the sculpey white as a primer.
I used a very small brush to get some details on the eyes.
A large brown dot, a smaller black dot, and then a really small white dot.
I painted the hair brown, and then went back in
with some white paint to add some highlights.
Finally, I painted a fine black line around the banana logo on the chest.
Step 5: Accessories
Tools needed: Acrylic paint, brushes, sculpey iii, oven, glue, scissors
Moon Knight had some nun-chucks, so I decided to make those into nan-chucks
THE FINISHED FIGURE!
Step 6: Packaging
Tools needed: Scanner, color printer, paper, x-axto knife, spray mount
I careful cut the original Moon Knight out of the package
I also decided to keep the MODOK piece in there since I don’t know what else I could have put there.
