here he is, finally!! I've been wanting to make the duo since their appearance in the new comic, but I was pretty weary of it actually happening. I knew I had to find the perfect base figures which was the issue plaguing me until Santolouco added boot to Bebop. When I saw the new design I knew it was on like Donkey Kong!

Rocksteady is a beast! At 9.5 inches tall, this is my largest custom figure to date. He's a hefty sucker too! 95% of the base figure was resculpted and the head is completely sculpted from scratch.

enjoy the pics and I wish you all a merry Christmas!

Do you sell these? Because I really would love an Old Hob or TMNT 2012 Rahzar done by you.

This is awesome man, I always enjoy seeing your customs.
Merry Christmas!

i'll sell the ones that i make, but i usually dont take commissions. i might make a Hob at some point, but i have so many other characters on my list i'm not sure when i'd get to him. thanks for taking interest in my work, i really appreciate it :)

thank you and yes he is. i still have not weighed him but he's gotta be between 1.5-3 lbs.

Incredible. It's a great stand-alone piece, but paired with Bebop they're a truly imposing sight.

I think this might be your greatest sculpt yet.

thanks DG! i agree, together, these two are my best work to date. my other favorites are the Jim Lawson turtle, Ross Campbell Leo, Dan Duncan turtle, and Andy Kuhn turtle.

i never before imagined that i would be sculpting animal heads and doing so decently! both of their heads where "first timers" for me. i've really learned a lot over the years of doing this hobby. as a fellow customizer, you know the most common form of customizing action figures is either repaints or part swapping (aka frankensteining). personally, frankensteining has always been too expensive for me. instead of spending an extra $20 or $40 for additional figures to canibalized, i (being the cheap ass that i am) decided to just try and make my own by sculpting. now when selecting a base figure, i am only really concerned with the body frame, vice all the other details.

i cringe when i see customizers using parts from 3-5 different figures. at nearly $20 a pop these days, you're looking at $80 on parts alone...YIKES!!!!!

That is AMAZING!!!! Do you have a gallery of all your work?

I second the need for an Old Hob! And add Herman the Hermit Crab to that, too!

Have you ever considered doing a Pimiko figure?
