Hey everyone. Now that Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice is here, I wanted to celebrate with some customs! I bring you two this week. The first is a repainted DC Comics Multiverse Batman v Superman Batman. He’s been repainted head to toe to be more realistic and movie accurate, had the weird cowl texture sanded down, given a new fabric cape, and I’ve given him a grapnel gun, and a movie accurate batarang I made out of styrene. The second is Armored Batman with light up eyes!. With some customizing magic, I added an LED inside the figure so Armored Batman’s eyes light up in that awesome intimidating way like in the movie. Not only that, but this one has also been fully repainted to look more realistic, and he’s got a fabric cape, and I even made him a Kryptonite spear, like the one he uses in the film. I’m really proud of how I was able to fit the wiring, switch, and battery compartment in the figure.
Be sure to check out the pages for each custom to see lots more pics, and read up on how they were made. Also, the Youtube videos for my Batman and Armored Batman custom figures have exclusive WIP photos! The Batman and Armored Batman customs are also up for auction on eBay this week.

Hey everyone! My latest custom action figure is up, Batman 1989 movie style! I took the recent NECA Batman Classic Video Game Appearance action figure and completely repainted it. It involved me taking apart the entire figure, including removing the head from the cowl (yeah there’s a Michael Keaton face under there!). I even detailed the face, including the black makeup around the eyes. I also gave my custom Batman 1989 movie figure two capes! One hangs naturally, the other has wires in the top for placing in his hands outstretched like when you first see him in the Batman 1989 movie. Pretty cool, huh? Just click the picture below to take you to the full page with the entire photo set, including a detailed description on the process of making it. And also, if you want to see some exclusive WIP photos and more, be sure to check out the Youtube video for it.

Here is my latest custom, Ra’s Al Ghul in his League of Shadows ninja gear from Batman Begins! I always wanted Mattel to make this version, but since they never did I just had to do it myself. Ra’s Al Ghul has been rendered in complete movie accurate detail, down to the plating on the back of his gloves and even his belt. I even sculpted in and removed the weird open mouth gap the Ra’s head had before. Click on the photo below to see the full photo set and detailed description on how it was made.

Hey everyone! Had to take a break from updating the customs for a couple of weeks in order to get some commissions done. I’m back with a new one, just in time for Halloween! This week I bring you a movie concept of Dutch Schaefer in Predator armor! I always thought it would be awesome to see Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character of Dutch back in another Predator movie, decked out in his old enemy’s armor, maybe hunting down other Predators for the U.S. government. How awesome would that have been? So I took a NECA Predator, stripped all the armor and weapons off, and put them on Dutch. I even included a severed Predator head as a trophy! Sick, right? For the full photo set, and detailed description on how Predator Armor Dutch was made, just click the photo below. And for those interested, Predator Armor Dutch is currently for auction on eBay.

Hey everyone. I know, I know, it’s definitely different from my usual custom action figure subject matter. However, when I was contacted by a groom to be, wanting his friends’ likenesses put on Avengers bodies as a gift for being in his wedding, I couldn’t resist. I loved the sentimentality, and it was nice doing something different. Not only that, but some time after, I was contacted by one of the former groomsmen who wanted to get the groom his own Avengers custom action figure, with him as Nick Fury! Again, I couldn’t resist. It made sense to complete the set, as it were. If nothing else, this project certainly helped me hone my hair sculpting skills.

And be sure to check out the Youtube video I made for these, which has exclusive WIP (work in progress) photos!

Hey everyone. Back again with some new custom action figures. This week I bring you some DC Comics goodness. First up, I have a movie concept Justice Lords Batman figure, complete with a Nolan inspired fabric cape! And I also have one that many of you may not even know about, Doomstroke! Doomstroke is an amalgam of Doomsday and Deathstroke that appeared briefly in the Superman/Batman story “Night and Day”, which largely took place in a universe where a bunch of DC characters were amalgamated into one another. I love mashups like that, so I couldn’t resist. Just click on each photo below to take you to the fully custom gallery. Also be sure to check out the videos I made for my custom Justice Lords Batman and custom Doomstroke to see some exclusive WIP (work in progress) photos! Thanks for looking.
Hey everyone! For this week’s new custom action figure, I have two for you: Dean Winchester, and Castiel the Fallen Angel from the television show Supernatural. Castiel is a custom I meant to post a while back, but completely forgot about it! So I decided to go ahead and post him with Dean. Both were made made to be completely accurate to the show. With Dean Winchester, the head actually came from a shrunken down mold of a custom sculpted 1/6 scale Dean head. I also made both of the Colt pistols from the show for Dean. Click each picture below to go to the full photo set for each custom. Also, don’t forget to check out the short Youtube vidoes I made for Dean Winchester and Castiel. It’s something I plan to do more of, showcasing my work on Youtube as well. Thanks for taking a look!
I managed to get these finished just in time for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out this week. After being underwhelmed by the official Playmates figures, I decided to take them and fully repaint them, including adding every little character detail to them that I could. I even repainted their weapons, adding chains to Mikey’s. I had to go through a ton of movie images and trailer stills, but I’m pretty confident I got them to be fully movie accurate. This set is also currently for auction on eBay for anyone who might be interested in owning them. Click the picture below to check out the full gallery (there are a ton of photos) and detailed description on how I made the Ninja Turtles fully movie accurate. COWABUNGA!
And check out the short video I made, showcasing my custom 2014 movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures!
