Other Custom Figures (non Star Wars) / Wet Suit V1

This I cast for myself, but I'll be handing it over to my business partner as a belated Christmas gift.  Something about this design is very profound in hand, but the photos don't really do it justice.

Here's pics of the painted Space Cowboy/Payload figure.  Just finished the clearcoat for this one, and fixed the paint discrepancies. Emjoy!

Here's the final painted version of the Gunfighter figure that was sent in by our bud Airmax.  He did all the mods and sculpting, and I just prepped it for molds and did the casting.  Really nice work on his part.  This figure comes with removable pistols (3) and will be cast in the base colors shown here (tan/black/flesh/yellow).  Enjoy!

Finally got a copy of ROM painted and just put it up on the 'bay.  I'm prepping the second set of molds so that I can cast two at a time.  As you can see, simple paint job to go with the molded metallic silver base.  Also a bonus, since it's all one color theres no need for clearcoat.  Anyway, enjoy!

This is the first painted cast of the Samurai Warrior (Budo) for my business partner.  It features a removable helmet and both swords and is cast in the base colors of OD Green/Gray/Flesh/Red/Silver.  For some reason the green photographs a lot darker than it actually is.  Wierd. 

A little pose-off pic:

This is the first painted cast of the Dragon Lady figure.  She features a removable scabbard, sword and Uzi, and is cast in Flesh/Red/Black/Silver.  She has had all the articulation in the lower body reworked to allow for a complete range of posability with double jointed knees/ball jointed hips/ball jointed feet to allow for all the ninja poses you could want.

Here are pics of the customs that I did for the FrankenJoe contest this year.  Interrogator won third place.

This is something I made using the molds that my buddy RaginSpoon put together for his Frag Viper.  This was a one off piece using a new fluorescent dye that I just tried to make the color as intense and with as much depth as possible.  On top of that, if you put it under a blacklight, it fluoresces.

Anyway, I thought you guys might like to have a look.  Enjoy this Brazilian flavored custom cast figure, Letal.

Here is a little something I picked up from the guys at and finally got something done with it.  Pretty cool stuff, even though I'm usually not a brick guy.

As you can see, this is the Daniel Craig Bond that has been so popular as of late.  He features a torso generously donated by my good buddy Dave at Tri-Gate Creations and a UMP.45 from Marauder "Gun-Runners" Home Page .

Here is the latest custom cast figure I've got done.  I'm calling this one Codename:Raven.  He features a headsculpt from my good buddy Dave over at Tri-Gate Creations and weapons from Marauder "Gun-Runners" Home Page

He is fully posable, and quite nicely captures the look of the old Galoob figures.  Enjoy!

Joe Defender / POC Desert Rockslide *IN HAND PICS/REVEIW*

Got a chance to pick up one of these a little while back, and thought I'd throw some pics up here for you guys.

Usually, I'm dead set against repaints for the sake of repaints, but occasionally Hasbro does such a fine job that it's easy to overlook my general objections.  That's the case with the Desert Rockslide.

While the logistics of driving this vehicle over anything other than sand would be frightening in real life, in a fantasy military world it seems a bit more appealing.  The repaint of the vehicle itself is fantastic.  The three color desert camo work nicely at giving this vehicle a slightly real world look while maintaining the fantastic elements that we've all come to appreciate in Joe.

The vehicle has a new sticker set, including some very cool shark teeth (always a bonus) and kill marks.  Evidently, Dusty is quite the marksman.  As you can see from the pics, I added a small hole in the back of the vehicle to have a stowage area for Dusty's backpack when he's in the cockpit.  It's a little thing, but I dig it.

As for Dusty himself, the figure is much improved in my opinion.  His color palette is a bit darker and warmer and his digi's feature the camo pattern present on many of the other movie style figures.  The contrast of the colored hands and lack of a havelock help to differentiate this version from the previous DVD pack version nicely.  Unfortunately, there is no battle stand.

Overall, I reccomend adding this vehicle and figure to your collection when these show up at retail.  You won't be disappointed.

*MODS* Wasn't really certain where this should go, so if it needs moving please do so.

Got some "in progress" headers for the upcoming new forum.  These are all still WIP (missing highlights, chrome effect, some colors and other things), but you can get an idea....maybe.

Some other big news.  SDCC Slaughter Pics are up (both versions) at this site:

Dig it! (and here's why)....

The Sarge was always a big guy, with a bit of a belly (and more so later in his career), but he was never that muscularly defined and this figure depicts that pretty well. I prefer the wrestling version over the one with the ROC movie legs, but both are pretty nice. Smooth sculpt, crisp details (boots and belts especially) and specific/correct accessories for each version. Really nice work H-bro.
