Minimate Custom Monday!

Hi there,

Here are my first official custom painted Minimate creations!
First up is one that took me about 5 or 6 years to finally get to finish.
Dr. Doom 2099! (Good thing it didn't take me "that" long)

I thought I'd make a villain for my lone Spiderman 2099 to fight.
 In the future I'll probably revisit this one to do some touch up work and stuff since it was my first minimate I'd ever painted.
He's pretty much a straight up repaint of the regular Dr. Doom Minimate with Silver Surfer's chest block.

Next up is my latest custom paint that I recently started and finished.
It's Batman's cold hearted (literally) villain: Mr. Freeze
Who freezes anyone who get's in his way!

His look is reminiscent of  his movie appearance from back when I was a kid in the 90's.
When he was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger...
Not why since I haven't seen the movie since it came out long ago when and my friend were kids.
Maybe it's nostalgia?
But regardless, I wanted Mr. Freeze to use the whole clear minimate body yet I wanted him to look like he was icy or something like that with an armored suit. So that's when I decided to go with a "movie inspired" look.
Kinda reminds me of a Mr. Freeze action figure I had.

Anyway, Hope you all like my Minimate custom creations
and be sure to
"Read More" to see how they looked before they were customized and a blogspot exclusive preview to two other custom WIPs (Work In Progress) that are coming soon.

On the left is how Mr. Freeze looked before I repainted him. The others are WIPs.

And for the Blogspot Exclusive:
Sadly it's kinda hard to see the black detailing I painted of the dark green body.
 Looks like the flash was a little too bright there. ^^; 
Well, the color of his left arm is pretty much how the left side of his body is colored

So anyone wanna guess who these will be when they're done?

Anyway, Thanks for reading and be sure to check back soon for more updates and custom creations, and more!
