To the customizers out there, who is on you TMNT customization list?

I'm really curious as to how others go about this? do you make a list or do you see a base figure/figure and decide from there? or do you do it another way

I kind of have a list of characters i want to customize but every now and again i see a figure and think they would make a great base for a certain character.

my current list is
Mutagen man
Man Ray
Wingnut & Screwloose
Leatherhead
Pizzaface
Scumbug
Dogpound

and i would love to do a megamutant Killer Bee

What about you guys?

I'm actually going to repaint a 5" from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I have all of the S.H. Figuarts rangers and want a baddie to go with them. So I'll repaint goldar and maybe pudgy pig or something.

I don't really have a list of things I want to paint but mores just think up a project and do it when I get time.

My number one project right now is going to be repainting the eyes on the 1990 Jim Henson Classics. They need green around their eyes in the worst way.

At some point, I want to make new versions of my Mirage Shredder & Casey. I've never been 100% happy with any of my previous customs, and I think I've improved my skills to the point where I can really nail them.

After that, I wanna scratchbuild 1990 movie Turtles, Casey, Shredder, Splinter, Tatsu and some Foot ninja. They'll be 6" scaled, fully sculpted which will then be moulded & cast in plastic, with plenty of articulation (think NECA's movie figures for the kind of joints I'm planning). It'll be a hell of a project, one I've been planning for 5+ years, but I'm getting closer to starting...

Having done 2 Splinters, Casey Jones, and Karai, I think I'd like to do the following next :

- a better Baxter Stockman - my first attempt was mediocre at best
- April O'Neil (bi-racial)
- a Fugitoid repaint
- Slash (big and bad)

Some of these sound pretty cool, I would love to see them come to fruition!

As for me, I have two ideas I'd like to try out (if I can get my hands on the parts);

-secret of the ooze shredder (or I suppose this could be called movie star shredder
- Mutatin' Slash

I'm currently working on a Nick Leatherhead. I'm just about done and will (I hope) post pics of it real soon.

Eventually, I'd like to repaint the entire '88 line. One of each character, not one of each figure.

Like, I don't need to repaint every single Leonardo. Just the ones I really like. Just one Bebop, one Rocksteady, etc.

If i had the time, money and space to display them i would love to have a original, custom painted and custom of each character *buys lottery ticket*

Yes! I'm really enjoying a lot of the repaints and how they bring out the sculpt details. Grape Soda's Leatherhead, BellyBoy's Doc EL, Huzzah's Napoleon, Psychoandy's Nick repaints... just to name a few.

I'm currently repainting the 11" movie figures and next I plan to repaint each of the new LARP figures. I also want to create my own dark Leo. Never done any sculpting before but eager to give it a bash.

I'm working on Krang's body right now using an old power ranger as a base. After seeing Discogod's I was inspired to make my own. I just hope mine turns out half as good as his.

also on the to do list
Dredmon
Rat King
Ray Fillet
Foot Soldier
Cryin' Hound (never able to find a good base)
I also need to invest in a good camera so I can start posting pics.

i haven't done any custom work yet but my GF has an art degree so when i do i'll have some help. the 2 big items i want to make a custom of is 1) repaint my extra shredder cruiser to the neutrino red for display. 2)the other and harder to do one is a Granitor. always felt it a shame he wasn't made and i really want one to display.

i geuss i do plan on building a huge custom diorama when i have the space and funds to do so as well but nothing drawn or figured out on that yet

I just finished all the sculpting for a hokum hare using the 2012 Michaelangelo as a base. I'm going to hold of on painting him just yet as I might end up changing his hands as I'm not to happy with my choice atm.
