CUSTOM FIGURES BY MERCURY ART STUDIOS (SITH & MORE)
« on: December 6, 2009, 10:11 PM »
Hey guys!!

My name is Mike M. i am 25 yrs old and have been a huge action figure fan for as long as i can remember.

also! i'm a huge fan of different art mediums, have been for years checking out several customizers, painters sculptors and of course anything related to the above!

I have been a star wars fan since my mother put a YODA mask on my face when i was like 1 years old hehe...Over the years learning about collecting, trading and selling action figures i decided to customize my own! this started around or just before the release of attack of the clones, not only customizing star wars figures but also marvel and gi joes too name a few.

I later discovered it was a popular underground-art form which i could not get enough of...later i would sell alot of these figures on ebay to make enough dough to continue my personal collection of ongoing action figures, replicas comic books and maybe one day leave my kids a good inheretance lol!! (granted if dont decide to be buried with all of it so kids be good to your parents)

so without further boring stories here it is my very first post on here!!! several of my star wars customs of the past few months will be added i will continue to add more as i can.

to JEDIDEFENDER i am not advertising or spamming!! But to everyone in staff and forum members please check out my myspace page add me as a friend!! feel free to comment!! if you dont have myspace no worries i am building a facebook page as well and website that should be launched early next year! So in the time being, follow the link below and check out my work.
