1  The Collector's Life / The Originals - The AFB Customs Board / Re: Jin's Customs: TMNT Chrome Dome vintage 6" style, pg.13 on: May 15, 2020, 01:06:04 pm
Here's a nifty custom of Metal gear Solid's Raiden with an armor-upgrade feature. He was created using the hasbro Overwatch Genji body and Revoltech Raiden head (with moving eyeball!), various armor fodder pieces, new sword blade attached to the Genji sword hilt, and a piece together combat rifle. You can customize his armor loadout and even equip him with a riot shield. Raiden was painted using Testors Metalizer Lacquers, primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, and sealed with Mr Hobby Premium spray sealer.

Many years ago I created a Cop-Out custom and after finding another Dirt Boss decided to give it another go! This time I preserved the exhaust-flip feature and used a Combiner Wars Rook head. Cop Out was primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, painted with gloss lacquer, and Testors Metalizer metallics. He comes with a blaster, baton, and yes his lights flash like my original one! You can pop off his chest and switch the lights to on for a nifty red/blue flashing effect just like a real police car.

The Age of Apocalypse Holocaust (Nemesis) Build-A-Figure would have been amazing if Hasbro hadn't painted over its clear plastic with solid yellow paint! It took quire a few hours and a bottle of acetone to carefully remove the opaque paint. Fortunately I was able to restore the clear look to the armor and used Tamiya clear yellow, orange, and red to shade and add bubbles to it. The canopy was given a ball joint hinge in the back so you could spin it around out of the way and the shoulder pads were ball jointed as well for maximum poseability! I also hollowed out the weird vents of his left arm cannon and filled in those for a smoother look.

Chromed for your protection! Here's a TMNT Chrome Dome created to mirror the vintage figure's style that I created using a Spiderman Beetle (or Ultron) body, Iron Man lower arms, Spiderverse Prowler hands, noodle soup Taskmaster feet, and Darkhawk wings. Pieces of the original Chrome Dome were worked into the sculpt like the head, chest, and removable belt. Other details were sculpted using Aves Studio's Apoxie Sculpt grey color. The figure was primed with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, hand painted/airbrushed and then sealed with Mr Hobby Premium sealer.

When an army of unstoppable shiny silver T800 Endoskeletons can't defeat the human resistance there's only one thing for Skynet to do....create a purple one with horns and hip-blasters! Ah yes the golden years of Kenner Toys gave us some amazing designs, some a bit more interesting than others such as the endoskeleton Kromium from their vintage Terminator Future War line. While I wasn't able to incorporate the extending feature the vintage toy had (there's not much plastic to work with using a plain Endo) I tried to get him as close as I could to the original design!

Kromium was made using a classic NECA Endoskeleton, BAF Odin horns, Cylon/Iron Man/Star Wars/Halo/Gundam/Transformers and scratch built sections to complete his armored-up look. I used Testors Aztek Airbrush paints (brushed on) and he was entirely shaded using The Army Painter's Quickshade wash sets and sealed using Mr Hobby Mr Top Coat semigloss Premium sealer.

Straight out of Shonen Jump's manga comes my newest custom, Space Adventure Cobra created in Marvel Legends scale! Classic Cobra was created from a Red Guardian body, Whirlwind lower arms, Ultron forearm, wrestling head with modded Starlord hair, and various fodder parts/belts. He comes with a removable Psychogun arm, Lady Cobra revolver, multiple hands, and cigar!

Ready for some retro Foot-clan action? Here's a 6" scale Foot Soldier that's decked out like the original vintage toy! This Foot Soldier was created using an Neca TMNT cartoon Shredder, vintage transforming Foot Soldier head/arm guards, and Aves Studio's Apoxie Clay to sculpt the vest as well as fill holes and add detail. The tunic was trimmed, new hands added, and the vintage toy's mace and Shell-Biter staff refitted. Foot Soldier even comes with a big ol' commando knife, roof top base, and is painted just like the vintage toy!

"Skeletor's laboratory has produced all sorts of deadly creatures but none so horrific as Planterror! Born from Eternian Flora that was corrupted with dark magic, Planterror can sense his prey through through the roots he sends out underground and even control their minds with his spores. One prick from his Vinelash whip causes paralysis and he can ensnare enemies with powerful vines if that wasn't enough! Man-At-Arms is still working on an antidote but for now only Roboto should be tasked with battle against Planterror."

Crazy characters are what Masters of the Universe is known for so here's one to add to your collection, Planterror! This potted pest was created from an Evil Seed body, Monster High plant collar, Nintendo Piranha plant pipes, Stratos lower legs, and a Demogorgon mouth. Everything came together perfectly to form this flowering foe and I airbrushed all sorts of highlights and shadows on for added detail.

"When it comes to crypts that needs exploring, ancient ruins that need discovering, or tribal warlords that need battling, none are better equipped than Radd-Venture. This mysterious man of action intends to explore every inch of Eternia using his rocket boots to propel him over dangerous chasms and power-whips to disarm traps. What's this? Skeletor is searching for an ancient gem of power? Radd-Venture is already in the tomb and has raided the treasure! For historical purposes of course."

Here's another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection, Radd-Venture, Eternian explorer! Radd was created using a Rio-Blast body, Darius head, Saurod lower legs, Eldor shirt, Playmotion Ultron tendrils, Cad Bane gun parts, and creech wrist blasters for the jet boots. I wanted an Indiana Jones themed character and even gave him a satchel to complete the look. His shirt is removable and you can swap the power whips/pistols out between his wrist ports.

"Savior, conqueror, hero, villain. You are all of these things, Revan..." The Legacy of Darth Revan wasn't always dark, he was once a Jedi knight and here I'm bringing Jedi Revan to you in 6" Star Wars Black series form! This version of Revan was featured in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes mobile game and was created using the Darth Revan figure with modded machine man belt, Old Luke skirt, and various straps/buckles. The hood needed to be removed, the neck reworked, and a complete paint job with metallic armor finished him up.

10  The Collector's Life / The Originals - The AFB Customs Board / Re: Jin's Customs: Armored Punisher, White Tiger pg.12 on: January 12, 2019, 07:24:56 pm
He's short, he's stocky, and he's the best at what he does. It's Wolverine and today I'm bringing his MvC2 sprite to life as a custom Marvel Legends figure! Wolverine was created from a Marvel universe hulk body/fists, sabertooth waist/upper legs, Masters of the Universe forearms, old ML Wolvie head with Apoxie Clay sculpted cowl, and Revoltech Wolverine lower legs/claws. Flexible boot tips were added, lots of shading and detail, along with extra range of movement added so you can pose Wolverine doing all the video game attacks like his Berserker Barrage and Weapon X specials.

11  The Collector's Life / The Originals - The AFB Customs Board / Re: Jin's Customs: MotUC Tem-Plarr, MCU White Tiger pg.12 on: December 31, 2018, 04:20:45 pm
When evil needs to be punished you bring in the man named for the task, the Punisher himself armed to the teeth and armored for war! This week I bring you a special version of Frank ready to take on your Legends collection all by himself. The Punisher was created using the Civil War Crossbones body, Demo man arms, Walgreens Punisher head, and Captain America lower legs. Scarlet Spider pouches were added to bulk up the arms and he was repainted head to toe with subtle shading and weathering. Punisher's arsenal includes a 50 cal, M-16, pistol, rocket launcher, shotgun, and ammo bin. Elastic web gear was added so he could store all the weapons on his body in case he needed more firepower.

Thanks for checking out my works!
13  The Collector's Life / The Originals - The AFB Customs Board / Re: Jin's Customs: MotUC Dyna-Soar, ML Hakaider pg.12 on: December 14, 2018, 05:14:50 pm
"From another world wrought with war and unending darkness comes a warrior that battles with a righteous fury. Tem-Plarr's mission was to seek out evil and destroy it. Once finished he could finally rest...until a mystical Time Portal of Skeletor's design opened up. Reactivated and detecting forces of darkness the valiant knight reached Eternia where a host of corruption was present. Beware the might of this knight Hordak, Skeletor, for stone and steel cannot be reasoned with!"

Here's another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection, Tem-Plarr! Modeled after the Templar Knights of lore this stony stoic statue was created from a Callix body, Mythic Legions knight head, Omega Red ponytail Iron Monger BAF fists and feet, Ceratus waist armor, Dr Strange cape section, Lightseekers shoulderpads, and sculpted detail using Aves Apoxie Clay. His broadsword was made using a ML Ares sword with a new hilt and a Digimon shield was modified into a Templar version that plugs on to his left forearm. Tem-Plarr was given realistic stone effects and weathered metallic detaling on his armor using Testors Metallic Lacquer.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With the King of Wakanda gone, vaporized by the mighty Thanos, a new hero emerges to fill his clawed shoes...the White Tiger! Here I created the Hector Ayala version to fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe style by using a Civil War Black Panther base figure, Ragnarok Loki lower arms and lower legs, Killmonger hands, and a modded Superman spear/sword combo. Careful line work of grey and black was added to his all white basecoat and I created a Jade Tiger Amulet so he could get those nifty mystical powers. While I'd love to see him in Avengers Endgame as a temporary Black Panther replacement he's more likely to have shown up on the Netflix Defenders/Daredevil series....if they hadn't been cancelled. Do'h!

"High above in the skies of Eternia a watchful warrior patrols, Dyna-Soar the Jurassic Aviator. Ever since he was hatched Dyna dreamed of chasing the feathered flying creatures and buzzing insects. But waiting around for his kin to grow feathers would take forever! Dyna began studying methods of flight and with the help of King Randor's mechanics devised a powerful flying apparatus he could pilot. With his mighty Meteor-Mallet Dyna-Soar keeps the skies clear of trouble, and sometimes the ground when he comes in for a landing!"

Here's Dyna-Soar, another original custom creation for your Masters of the Universe Classics collection. Dyna was created using a Ceratus body, King Chooba lower legs, Lightseeker head, Marvel's Vulture Titan wings, GI Joe Sigma 6 web gear, Saurod waistguard, BAF Onslaught hands, and an DC Direct Orion flight vest. Testors Metallic Lacquer was used for his metal effects and he was airbrushed with light blue highlights to complement his look. Two of Strobo's meteor stands were used on a ML Odin spear to create his hammer weapon.

My post-apocalyptic Transformers are back and the "End of the Road" series continues! In the far future humankind has become all but extinct and the war between Autobot and Decepticon has ravaged the planet, each faction doing anything it can to survive. Here I've taken a Titans Return voyager Optimus Prime and given him all the battle damage, weathering, scuffed, dusty, and bullet-ridden detail my other EotR figures have. Prime features metal wheel covers and chains. His plane mode is gone and there's magnetic missile launchers that store in his legs now. His Battle-Tanker alt mode features an anti-aircraft top mounted gun as well. It's the End of the Road for the Transformers...who will be next?

An android without memory, wandering the world, is he friend or foe? This week I bring you Hakaider from the Kikaider anime done in Marvel Legends 6" form. He was created using a Multiverse Parademon body, SIC Hakaider statue head, animated Batman cowl, Hawkman armor, Big Red Predator belt, and Zod shoulder pads. I gave Hakaider a sleek black-gunmetal bodywash with classic anime yellow/red colors to complement him. Hakaider features a magnetic removable cape, pistol, and Professor Gill's flute.
