Yeah haven't posted customs for a while but I decided to start them up a few months back. I'm sure some of you may remember my Tatsu and Traag custom, and I decided to do more Traag figures to make myself a little stone warrior army.
I gave each of them a few tweaks here and there with all distinct colors and faces
After finishing my Tatsu I wanted to make a Shredder, but I was too lazy to make one from a generic figure so I just used an old Wacky action Shredder. He's supposed to have a similar color scheme and mask from movie one, but with no sleeves.
Anyways what do you guys think? I know some of the lines are kinda sloppy and uneven but I'm fairly happy with the result.

Cool stuff man. I really like Tattoo as the Ancient one.

Thanks. That's probably my favorite as well. Although some of the red paint stuck to his arms. Since there was never a toy made of Ancient one I wanted to make my own. So I thought to myself "where can I get a toy with a base that says fat Asian guy? so there you have it, Tattoo as Ancient One.
And here's a work in Progress aptly titled "work in Progress".

And I can certainly see where it's going! :D
I really like these! Tattoo makes an excellent Ancient One, and I'm truly impressed by how good you made the Slice 'n' Dice Shredder look. :) How'd you achieve that effect on the faceplate, and how'd you get the armor to look so shiny?

I actually just used this high adhesive duct tape that's used to blend in with Air ducts. I took off the original armor and Made the gauntles out of the tape. To keep it sturdy i put a layer of bristal to let is keep it's shape. Then I folded the edges to make blades. As for thelonger claws on his left hand, they used to be the ends on a plastic fork. The faceplate also has the tape, I just used a sharpie to make it black in those areas and cut into it gently with a box cutter.
I'm assuming work in progress is gonna be krangs android body. I like what i see so far, crious to see where it goes, the base figure works pretty well.

^^ You are correct sir. I always thought that the 1994 one was too small, while the 89' one was just too damn big. I barely finished painting him all white and trimming down some of the details ( fingertoes, leg braces wrist gaurds. It's gonna take a while, but hopefully i finish before thanksgiving.

Damn, you stole my idea for The Ancient One (not that I ever told anyone). Well, now I know it'll look good!

Ha! Yeah I'm a sadistic bastard gutting him and cutting off a chunk of his face.I plan on cutting off his fingertoes as well. That Way I could add as much as I need to his "Krang Foot" without it being too big and out of proportion.
Yeah I like how it looks, but a little bit of advice, Chin reduction surgery is necessary since Tatto's chin puts Leno to shame.

nice work! i want to see a Ancient One to match the 2k3 scale, but Tatoo makes a good one too!:tgrin:

Considering how short Ancient One was on the show he fits pretty well. As for the fingertoes comments I realized that it was a bit repetetive:lol: toes is what i meant.

I like this alot !!!
Gives me some ideas for Ancient one.. though I might just make him a complete sculpt so I could make him very pint-sized.

He works fine for the 2k3 TMNT, but he is a bit tall, especially with the sandals I made him. I guess he works in scale for the Neca figures.
