Custom: Super Hero Squad – Demogoblin

without comments

Sometimes I make custom figures because I find a few pieces that make for an excellent kitbash, other times I make them because I think Hasbro would never release the figure even when it would be a simple repaint. After ending up with an extra Hobgoblin figure, I figured I needed to do something with the figure.

One option was going to be Cyber Hobgoblin, but that was a twisted abomination. So instead I took the easy repaint route and made my own Demogoblin!When doing repaints, I first do a color study which often leads to comic results. But I prefer having a plan on how I’m going to get the figure painted. I will admit that the sculpt on Hobgoblin isn’t perfect for a Demogoblin figure though. The hood and cape isn’t tattered and the the glider looks far too mechanical instead of being made of flames.

While I don’t have much of a connection to Demogoblin himself, I’ve always been a fan of the entire Goblin group of villains that Spider-Man faces. Still, I find the concept of the a demon-infused goblin great. He’s one of the few characters that came out of the 90s that I don’t totally despise (plus he isn’t covered in pouches).
