Customizing Tony Stark and Nick Fury Minifigs

I wanted to make Tony Start and Nick Fury minifigs. I did some research and could not find any minifig head in brown/reddish brown so not sure he will be possible.

For Tony Stark I will obviously be using his head from the Iron Man Minifigs. I am going to be using this hair in black:

But I am not yet set on the torso. I like the Torso from the Collectible Minifig Gangster:

Or this torso, however, I want to add black arms and flesh color hands:

I do think that the Alien Conquest Business Man is a good minifig for Tony Stark, however, from the movies I do not remember him wearing navy blue suits quite often, but I could be wrong:

What does everyone think?

    Some of the pirates of the carrabian sets have minifigures with brown skin tones

    For the movies, Tony Stark is usually in a dark charcoal gray suit with fine pinstripes or a standard black tuxedo. So the black gangster suit with pinstripes will work well. If you don't want the stripes, try this torso in black with gray silhouette:

    There will be a nick fury figure at some point as there is one on the avengers Lego promo poster.

    Maybe you could use Mace windu head and hands from star wars sets as it is the same actor who plays Nick fury (Sam L jackson). As Teamladd says though there should be an actual figure soon.

    Yea Nick Fury will be hard because I don't think they have a African American minifigure head with an eye patch. Maybe go the comic route and use something like this

    with this hair

    and for the body, use an agents body

    (Pretend the "A" stands for Avengers)

    I think that makes a pretty good Nick Fury, matter o fact, think I might make one myself


    Well Just double checked the picks of the old school nick fury, I forgot he doesn't really have a beard (just stubble) and his hair is only gray on the sides, with the top black. So this set up might take some imagination, or painting..

    Wow, that "A" on the Agents figures does look like the "A" for the Avengers. Has the slant and everything. Those guys could be extra SHIELD agents.

    Was just playing around wih this idea and ordered some parts to do a custom Tony Stark (will load up the pic when he is built, should be by the end of the week, but quite a simple figure, Also designed a small scale Lab for him, but probably won't build it as i can't be bothered to source the parts (PAB is rubbish for its range of bricks)... anyway here is the LDD image of the LAb and i will post a picture of the Tony fig and parts list later this week.

    OK - here is my Tony Stark custom figure:
    I used the regular Tony head (from the Iron Man Figure next to him), a set of clear flesh hands to match up and the suit is from the standard Lego Mayor figure, I added one laptop for effect.

    For Nick Fury you can use Seso from 'Battle of Alamut'
    That minifig has got a good head, and brown hands, and arms.

    Mmm, everything looks lovely except the hair. Tony didn't have/doesn't have the slicked back look.

    @scruffy193 I think it depends on what version of the character you go for. The graphic novels vary artist to artist, the new mightiest heroes incarnation is a bit of a flick/mop thing, but the movie version is pretty close to a slicked back look, the fig wig isn't perfect but not a million miles off, just google some images of Robert Downey Jr, I would call it a volumised slick back, if such a thing exists.

    I'm with @monkey_roo on this one. I think the hairpiece he used is a solid LEGO representation of Downey Jr's style in the films.
