News – DC Universe Classics Doomsday Unleashed Will Be…You Get the Idea

For those who haven’t heard by now, Mattel announced on their Facebook page the other day that the once thought dead DC Universe Classics Doomsday Unleashed figure in fact being released towards the end of this year. This came on the heels of some leaked packaged photos of the Doomsday Unleashed figure that Mattel wrote off as old packaged samples that the fans were never supposed to see. Apparently this was some misdirection until the official announcement, which is stirring some controversy amongst collectors. Many are feeling cheated for “having to buy” the Containment Suit Doomsday figure, thinking it would be the only one ever made. Me personally, I would have bought that version regardless, because when it comes to DC (especially DC Universe Classics), I’m all in, and I couldn’t be more excited about Doomsday Unleashed.

Tutorial – Shoulder Fix for TMNT Classics 1990 Movie Figures

I’ve been hearing a lot of people complain about the ridiculously tight shoulders on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics 1990 movie figures. And they are too tight. The TMNT Classics 1990 figures’ shoulder joints are so tight that trying to move them stresses the peg in the bicep, which could lead to tearing. So I made a video guide that will show you how to loosen up the shoulder joints to a proper resistance on your TMNT Classics 1990 Movie figures. To view the full guide, just CLICK HERE or the picture to the left. I hope this guide helps loosen some frustration for collectors.

New Custom Figures – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014 Movie Accurate)

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!

New Custom Figures – Kenner Style Aliens Drake, SNES AVP Bat Alien

Hey everyone. I’m back with more new customizing goodness for you. I bring two new customs from one of my favorite franchises ever, Aliens. I have a custom Bat Alien designed after the character from the SNES Alien Vs. Predator game from the early 90′s, repainted with a more traditional Xenomorph color scheme (props to Jin Saotome for the recipe). I also have a custom of the Colonial Marine Smart Gun operator Drake! He’s based off of the look of the old 90′s Kenner action figure. You might remember a while back when I did a custom updating the design of the Kenner Sgt. Apone figure. Well, Drake is a continuation of that series. And yes, I definitely plan to update more. Just click on the pictures below to lead you to the corresponding page, where you can read the full descriptions for how I made the Bat Alien and Drake customs, as well as view the entire gallery of pictures. Until next time!
