New Custom Figure – Aliens Vs. Predator Tequila Colonial Marine!

I know it had mixed reactions, but I love the 2010 Aliens Vs. Predator video game. One of my favorite characters in the game was Corporal Teresa “Tequila” Aquila. She was smart, strong, and wasn’t afraid to tackle with some xenos. I love the character, and I love the idea of expanding the ranks, so I just had to customize her. I pored over several screenshots of the Tequila character from the Aliens Vs. Predator video game to make sure I got this custom down as accurately as possible. Be sure to check out the official page for Tequila to see the full photo set as well as a detailed description of how it was made. Also, this custom is currently for auction on eBay. Feel free to bid if you’re interested in filling out your NECA Colonial Marines. If you know someone who might be, then please pass the link along. Thanks for looking!

 

New Custom – Night Fighter Robocop with Gun Arm for Robocop Week!

Hey everyone. Regardless of what you may think of the Robocop reboot coming out to theaters today, there’s no denying that it’s bringing a lot of deserved attention back to the original film. It’s one of my absolute all time favorite movies, and I wanted to celebrate Robocop Week here on Mint Condition Customs the best way I know how: by making a custom figure of course! So here I present Night Fighter Robocop! I’ve gone through and taken the NECA Night Fighter Robocop, and modified it to look much more like the vintage Night Fighter Robocop from the Robocop and the Ultra Police toy line by Kenner, complete with an interchangeable minigun arm! And just because this is Robocop Week doesn’t mean I won’t do more Robocop customs in the future. Be sure to check out the official page for this custom to see the full photo set and description for how it was made. This custom Night Fighter Robocop is also currently for sale on eBay.

New Custom Figures – Amazing Spider-Man 2 & Arkham Origins Batman

Hey everyone. If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a couple of new customs up this week. First up is an Arkham Origins Batman. I took the Mattel Batman Unlimited figure and gave him lots of extra articulation (including an ab joint!) so now he can be posed much more dynamically. Next, I took the new Marvel Legends Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie figure and gave him a full repaint, gave it some magnetic feet, an alternate Andrew Garfield Peter Parker head, a web line, and a rooftop display base! Both customs are also currently for auction on eBay for those who might be interested. Just click on each photo below to go to the corresponding eBay auction, and be sure to check out the full photo set and descriptions for each custom as well. Thanks for looking!

Check out the official page for this custom to see the full photo set and a detailed description of how it was made. Also, Red Hood is up for auction on eBay right now.

Thanks for taking a look, and stay mint!*

I dub this Batman Week here at Mint Condition Customs, and to celebrate it I bring you not, not two, but three new customs! This week I have a new custom Deadshot figure, based on his appearance in the Gotham Knight animated feature, a custom Arkham Asylum Joker figure that I added lots of new articulation too, and an Arkham Origins style Deathstroke, complete with unmasked Slade Wilson head! Be sure to click the links to see the full photo sets and descriptions for how each custom was made. Thanks for looking!

Custom Figure – It’s 80′s Cartoon Villain Week with The Shredder & Mumm-Ra!

Yep, you read the title right. I’m dubbing this week 80′s Cartoon Villain Week here at Mint Condition Customs, as I’m bringing you all custom figures of The Shredder (the constant thorn in the side of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Mumm-Ra the Ever Living (the evil undead menace to the Thundercats). The Shredder is based on his look in the current Nickelodeon cartoon series. I had to combine the parts from both of the current Shredder figures to make him fully poseable, since neither one has great articulation on its own. He was also given a full repaint to help bring out the details and make his armor shiny!

Mumm-Ra was something I started a long time ago, but only recently finished once the idea of this week’s theme dawned on me. I took the Thundercats Classics Mumm-Ra figure and installed some wiring in his big hollow torso and gave him light up eyes! With just the flip of a switch on his back Mumm-Ra’s eyes glow an eerie red, as if summoning the ANCIENT SPIRITS OF EVIL! He was also given some poseable bandages, handmade cape accurate to the cartoon, and a full repaint to look more realistic. Be sure to click the links below to see the full photo sets and descriptions for how each custom was made.

New Custom Figure – The Flash TV Series Style

The Flash TV series is an underrated gem. Yes, it’s corny in a very early 90′s way, but the writing is solid and the acting is pretty good. The pilot might as well be a made for TV movie about the Flash. So. I wanted to capture the essence of the Flash from the show in action figure form. Hopefully I’ve done John Wesley Shipp’s version of the Flash justice. Make sure to click the picture below to check out the full photo set and a detailed description of how I made this custom of the Flash from the TV series. Thanks for looking!

 

New Custom Figure – Eye-Lash, Evil Mistress of Torture, Original Masters of the Universe Classics Figure

Hey everyone! To continue in the Halloween spirit, for my latest custom I bring you Eye-Lash! The cycloptic femme fatale, the evil mistress of torture for the Evil Horde! This idea was brought to me by Masters of the Universe fan Joe Martin. He had entered this into the 2012 Masters of the Universe Classics Create-A-Character contest. Sadly it didn’t win, so he sought me out to realize his idea in custom figure form. And let me say, I’m glad he did, because this was a fun one. The Evil Horde is easily my favorite faction of MOTU lore, due to the fact that most of the members are based on classic movie and literary monsters. Eye-Lash here is no different. She’s a cyclops for crying out loud! She’s covered in creepy eyes all over her outfit, she’s got a crazy looking “cat eye nine tails” whip, and she’s plenty evil to boot. She definitely fits in with the Evil Horde. Be sure to click the photo below to check out the full photo set and description for my custom Eye-Lash. You can also read a full character bio written up by her creator, Mr. Joe Martin himself.

New Custom Figures – Kenner Inspired Sgt. Apone and Bull Alien!

Hey everyone. I have some new customs for you, just in time for the Halloween season. So, do you remember the old Kenner Aliens toy line from the early 90′s? I know I do. It’s one of my favorite toy lines, although I’m biased since Aliens is one of my favorite movies so of course a toy line based on it will catch my interest. At any rate, I was recently hit with inspiration to recreate the old Kenner Aliens figures, but in a more modern, realistic style that blends in with the new NECA figures. To kick things off, I started with two of my favorite figures from that line, Sgt. Apone and the Bull Alien. I’m thinking of releasing them two at a time, each time being one Colonial Marine and one Xenomorph to go with it. This is the start of what’s going to be a new line of custom figures from me, recreating pretty much the entire Kenner Aliens line. Be sure to click the links below below to view the corresponding page for the entire photo set and a detailed description of the process I went through to make each custom.
