There are many many other customizers out there. The users on this board who create works like this are merely a fraction of those who enhance TMNT figures. If the creator of that custom were a member here, surely they would have shown it by now. It is indeed a rad work of art, though!

that custom is a copy of one that sold on ebay for over $600. the original custom was by a customizer known as jin
http://www.angelfire.com/mech/jinsaotome/JinsDangerousToys/Slash.html

while they did an ok job relplicating his custom, they will fail and fail hard to replicate his price. jin has his own fans dedicated to his auctions, just to win a "jin origianl".

I think this custom itself shouldn't be considered a clone of Jin's - Turtles in to Slash is not really an original idea for anyone to do. There are similarities between the two, sure, but that's going to happen when using the same base and converting to the same character. I happen to like this one better than Jin's - I love the yellow eye on this and I think the paint job is much better.

I'm surprised no one has done a Slash accurate to his toy though - the correct teal color and adding in a hunch. I might have to try it.

Not to mention all the shill bidding he (allegedly) does...

that's an amazing custom, but why do you automatically assume that it was made by someone on here? :tconfuse:

I like this guys' custom better than the Jin one linked. The yellow eye and the bandanna are much better IMO, not to mention about a million other reasons. I think this one is just overall better in every area.

I assumed it was by someone here mainly because we have so many amazing Turtle customizers here, and honestly I was just hoping it was someone here. Whoever it was deserves credit for this.

i considered that he may have done that at some point in the past to create that, "OMG look how much this dudes customs go for! they must be amazing, i gotta have one!!!" mentality his customs seem to create. who knows, maybe he does it now or maybe not. interesting thought though. i will say that he does make some high quality customs though.



ok, so COPY may have been a little strong of a word to use. but this figure was most definitely inspired by jin's. btw, i'm not dumping on this custom as i think its a good custom. in my mind i was just comparing the two.

This is an awesome custom and I'm glad he got some amazing money for it. But has anyone noticed how much "dirty" turtles are going for on ebay lately? Im considering buying a set and dry brushing them to death and seeing what people will pay for it haha
