Janine Melnitz as a Ghostbuster

Janine Melnitz as a Ghostbuster custom action figure by Mint Condition Customs:
I've already done Janine in the Ghostbusters uniform, but this time around I made some great changes! In addition to making her more accurate to the comic book appearance, I've made some changes to her Proton Pack, giving her what I like to call Proton Pack 2.0! I know, original right?

This second Janine was actually made for Peter David, the famous comic book writer who wrote the issue of Ghostbusters, "What in Samhain Just Happened?" that my first Janine custom was based on. So of course I was happy to take on the job, and make her better! Everything about Janine is the same as before only this time I used a length of ball chain to make her necklace and painted it with clear blue making it accurate to her comic appearance.

The proton pack was altered this time around making it more durable and easier to take on and off. I used different straps this time, from the backpack of a Spider-Man 1 Movie Peter Parker and attached them to the pack with small screws. I used the heads from nails and attached them to the bottom of the pack on either side, and painted everything. There are holes in the bottom of the straps that attach around the nailheads easily and leave a snug fit and are able to be removed just as easily. It's also much sturdier this time around. A simple enough alteration that I think makes the custom this time around that much better.

Mr. A action figure

Mr. A custom action figure by hussapocalypse on sale at eBay.

Mr. A is a fictional comic book hero created by Steve Ditko. Unlike most of his work, the character of Mr. A and the Mr. A stories remain the property of Ditko, all of which were written and illustrated by himself. The character first appeared in Witzend #3, 1967. Mr. A's name comes from "A is A", a reference to the law of identity in Aristotelian logic. It is also in poetic reference to Ditko's other, similar character, The Question, as in "question and answer"
