Armored

Just bought 2 Ironman figures of E-bay to use the bodies for 2 customs I'm gonna make.
I always had the principle of using Joe-parts only,but with prices going thru the roof I've changed that principle.
Here's 2 ideas I have,I'm still thinking 'bout the colors.
Ideas are welcome,maybe I can get inspired

Btw,does anyone know if the head attachment of Joe figures is compatible with Marvel ?
I still have to wait a couple of weeks for these to arrive,shipping from Hong Kong...

man, those are both awesome concepts. the transparent red on the iron man figure is too cool to paint over, i would try to preserve that. for the war machine/CC maybe a metallic grey or gun metal with a clear blue on select areas, with a 3rd color for detailing?
whatever you decide on, these are gonna be winners !
you will probably have to hone out the head hole to fit the marvel neck posts.

Thx man
I do want too keep the transparant red areas,was thinking on doing a partial phasing figure.
What colors are concerned,for the warmachine I'm going with metallic blue and light metal grey.
As for the wraith,I'm still thinking...

I dig the idea a lot.
Here's a look at the Wraith I did (May or may not help with ideas.)

I really like that Wraith version. I might need to copy that.
Keenan's is awesome as well.

Finally received the figures from China on friday,and got to work almost immediately.
This is the what I made of the mercenary wraith using the Iron Man body.
I went with silver and brass colors,wich I think really work on him.
I kept some transparant parts to give the ilusion that he's partially fazing.
First I'd like to hear some comments on him before posting this on the finished board....
