The top 5 most original Captain Britain custom action figures

There’s a lot of very talented people out there making custom action figures of Captain Britain, and today we’re going to highlight five of these creators and their work. People who were not content to make standard Cap figures, but went that one step further to produce some great original action figures.

Let’s start with a great take on Cap, one that shows him without his mask.

Designed and built by Mat’s Customs, I love the perfect capture of Brian Braddock with his marvelous coiffure.

Next is a figure I’ve featured before but which always impresses me with its level of detail, zombie Captain Britain.

He really looks fierce, and is that the remnants of Nightcrawler he’s holding ?

Next up is a great retro figure.

From Troy Younger comes a Mego Cap which imagines how he might have looked had he been released as an action figure in the Seventies.

I’m not sure what this figure represents so I’ve called it medieval Cap.

From toycutter I love Cap’s shield and sword plus the figure seems bulkier almost as if that’s armour Cap is wearing.

The last figure now and I believe I’ve saved the best til last.

From Jodi Moisan via the John Byrne forum comes this fantastic My Little Pony Captain Britain which I think is marvelous.

  1. I wish i still had some pictures, but back when HeroClix was only on its third or fourth expansion i made myself a pair of Captain Britains. I used a Nightwing with the fighting sticks for Cap’s original outfit and Hawk (with the shoulder banners cut off) for Cap’s Earth-1193 Excalibur outfit. They weren’t that great, because getting detail that small is far beyond my basic painting skill, but they were a lot of fun to make and play with.
