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!

Have no idea who some of these are, but they all look good. Your Punisher and Guardsman are incredible!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Let's take a trip into the Star Wars universe and envision what if Luke Skywalker appeared in an episode of the Mandalorian during season 2? Well here's my take on Luke as he continues his training as a Jedi and finds himself investigating the appearance of what he believes is an old armored foe... Luke was created using an old Luke body, parts of ML Karl Mordo, and a Trash Compactor Luke head. He was primered using Bulldog Adhesion promoter, painted with Testors acryl and airbrush paint, and sealed with Mr Hobby Premium Flat spray sealer for a factor finished look. Luke comes with three hands, black gloved, robotic, and metal fist. He has a unique Jedi garb and removable cloak, blaster that magnetically attaches to his belt, lightsaber and X-wing helmet.

This week I've created Skywarp in Bumblebee-movie-syle similar to the Starscream I made earlier. The body is a Nitro Zeus/KSI Boss mold and a Shapeways shop Ariel's Customs Seeker faceplate on a Titans Return headmaster. I shortened the kneeplates, added toes, and swapped out the neck gatling guns/wrist cannon for different blaster tips to differentiate him from Starscream. Skywarp was primered with Bulldog (or Duplicolor) Automotive Adhesion Promoter, painted with Testors Metalizer and Aztek Airbrush paints, and sealed with Mr Hobby Premium flat/gloss spray sealer for a factory finished look. He transforms the same and the headmaster can fly in the cockpit!
