I am looking for some ideas for some faceplates i want to make, along with this i want action figures to go with them ( space if you mad i adding figures i wont just thought its an extremely good idea) so any 1 if they can comment on some good ideas, i was thinking transformers as 1 but if you guys think of something else please let me know, if you find a good figure (in the UK preferably) its even better.

Thanks a bunch

Attaching action figures to plates is my idea, so you can't do it.





:D




Silly.





There are some Transformers keychains that are small and would work well on a plate. I've got two in the works but I'm taking a different approach with them.

I want THE ULTIMATE Halo faceplate, it has to be attached to the giant HAlo Clix Scarab that's like 2ft tall... haha

2ft?... So... Would the 360 be hanging off of the figure then?

This is the Scarab I have:

Put that on a faceplate and make it functional and I'll be impressed ;)

I did a Wonder Woman plate that was okay, with the intention of doing three simple superhero plates. I never did get to Supes or Bats. I have figures and logos for both, I just haven't done them. I have a Batplate that's been in the works forever. You should give one a shot and see what you can do with it.

One thing about Batman is that there's a zillion figures to choose from. I"m trying to find a Speedball figure, or even one to use as a custom. Yeah, right.

its just coming up with inspiration really, like i was thinking wolverine would be a good 1 and i think i am going to do that, its just going to be hard to find the right figure, if any of you guys come up with a cool figure or something that would make a great plate please post here, space maybe you can make it into a pin up thread like the other 1 you just made... can help all designers with inspiration and it will show what some collectors like as well.

This would be tricky, but paint the back of his closed fist on the USB area, and take three pieces of styrene plastic cut to look like blades and attach them lengthwise up the plate.

i just got a "the thing" figure to day as i thought it would make a good faceplate that no 1 has done. I have a few ideas but i wanna hear what other people think as well. Give me your ideas, never know it might actually turn into a proper plate? haha

Look at chezymonkey's customs. His rocky surface would make a good Thing plate.

i did think of that but not sure, i also thought of this snapping the arms of the poor toy and make it look like he is breaking though the 360 with his arms.

what you guys think?

Have to ask him. I don't know. Breaking through would be a good plate.
