Just somewhere I can post pictures and such, without necessarily having specific points per post...

http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l118/Jarred706/ScaleTail.jpg

Raphael and Shadow descent into the sewer have led them to something dark...

I chose the movie turtles, mostly because after a basic repaint, they aesthetically blend with McFarlane figures.

Turtle Tracker seems appropriate for a vehicle for these guys, I use Michonne here to represent a more human version of Venus.

Savanti Romero.

I think I've seen your stuff over on Figure Realm and they are awesome man. That Savanti Romero is ****in' ace! It looks like Ultimate Green Goblin's arms but what did you use for the legs and feet? Is the head your orginal sculpt? Also Is the Lionheart a Motu classics figure and if so how does he fit in scale wise with the tmnt classics?

Huzzah
01-18-2015, 11:05 PM
Yeah, I am Jarred706 on the Realm, but thanks.

The arms are Ultimate Green Goblin, the head is a sculpted over Darkseid head, the legs came from a Narnia Minotaur. Yeah, it's MotU Carnivous, and I don't have any of the TMNT Classics to compare with, but the Mona figure is 6-inch scale, so size wise I don't see why they would have any problems matching up with the TMNT Classics.

Interesting! I thought the head and torso on that Savanti were Terrax... but live and learn. Anyway, I really like your stuff, and the idea of using the movie TMNT with the Walking Dead figs rules! I feel like I finally have a proper place for those hideous things now, lol.

Huzzah
01-19-2015, 01:28 AM
You're right, the head was Terrax, my bad. The torso is Ultimate Green Goblin, with parts of the Terrax shoulder pad things.

Metalhead repaint, despite it's not necessarily ideal articulation, this little guy packs a lot of personality, I honestly think it may be one of my favorite figures in the Nick line.

75% of the van was missing, but at 2 bucks I didn't mind, it had enough pieces to serve its purpose. I know I need to keep an eye out for some more of those, even missing pieces, because there are a couple other purposes I could find for them.

Well my custom Rocksteady here needed a spruced up ride. So, the Movie figure sacrificed his bike. I was glad to see he actually fit on there decently, despite being a monster of a figure, though he needs a fresh repaint to match up with a lot of my recent figures.

Great stuff! Really liking your movie inspired figures, I'd like to see a group shot of everything you've done in that style. Didn't you use the Out of the Shadows Shredder figure as the base for another character? I've got a vague recollection of seeing it, but I can't seem to find it now!

Huzzah
07-15-2016, 09:05 PM
I did use that body for another figure, but I need to give it a thorough repaint. It currently possesses a quick-y paint job, when I get around to getting it redone, I'll post it up.

Anyway, I was not happy with either Movie Donnie, so I had to come up with an updated one, I also pieced together a new April with a slightly more traditional look.

Because I don't really support factory model toys, because God forbid a toy looks like a toy. Anyway, I got the 2014 Assault Van almost fully complete minus the wench for ridiculously low price, and instead of just using it as is, I decided to strip it down, disassemble it and repaint completely. Eventually I add a few things to the interior (because I tore out most of the action-y feature parts), and I'm thinking about adding some bullet holes and such.

Massive improvement!

I got the 2015 Nick Party Wagon in a trade, never opened it, and finally retuned it to a store 'cause I never know how to go about utilizing vehicles in photos.

...then last night I started looking at some random gear and accessories that might look cool inside the van.

...and I went back to the store today and got it. :roll:

I'll keep you posted if I get anything useful out of it. Not that it isn't a pretty great vehicle as-is.

Huzzah
08-09-2016, 02:33 PM
I've always wanted to have a little gear inside the vans instead of the empty space there, it's kind of hard though to work on the interior and still leave some viable space, I'm hoping I can figure something out. Another key reason I'm trying to get it situated and get some kind of process is that when I get the Figuarts Turtles coming out, I'm going to have to convert a Cowabunga Carl van into a Party Wagon, the exterior I can do, the interior will be a bit trickier. I figure though, since I am drastically decreasing toy purchases, limiting figures to more Collector oriented stuff, the Figuarts and hopefully First Gokin Krang will all be had this year since it's my final semester of Nursing School I should be employed by November, I'll have to really key in to vehicle and display customizing.

Anyway, I actually like the design of the Nick Van, I hope you figure something out, then again you typically do accessorizing well.

Monte Williams
08-09-2016, 02:38 PM
The Cowabunga Carl van is by far the best of the bunch. If memory serves it already has some cool gear in the back, too.

Yeah, the back of them all is pretty cramped, especially the Party Wagon. I've resigned myself to tackling this one for fun, not for photos. We'll see.

Looking forward to seeing those higher-end figures in your photos!

Huzzah
08-09-2016, 03:03 PM
I'm mostly hoping that the newer figures will scale well with my current lair, I think they will with a lot of it, though not necessarily all the furniture, but we'll see.

I've always wanted to have a little gear inside the vans instead of the empty space there, it's kind of hard though to work on the interior and still leave some viable space, I'm hoping I can figure something out. Another key reason I'm trying to get it situated and get some kind of process is that when I get the Figuarts Turtles coming out, I'm going to have to convert a Cowabunga Carl van into a Party Wagon, the exterior I can do, the interior will be a bit trickier. I figure though, since I am drastically decreasing toy purchases, limiting figures to more Collector oriented stuff, the Figuarts and hopefully First Gokin Krang will all be had this year since it's my final semester of Nursing School I should be employed by November, I'll have to really key in to vehicle and display customizing.

Anyway, I actually like the design of the Nick Van, I hope you figure something out, then again you typically do accessorizing well.

Classictvtoys.com has a new van all cast in one solid color aside from the roof which is cast in a seperate color for 40 bucks. It's for 8 inch figures and it's pretty basic but it could make for a nice base for a turtle van. I'm seriously considering buying one but the 40 dollar price point is a bit off putting plus I have some other projects left to finish.

That's pretty cool. Though I've actually gotten pretty far with the Cowabunga Carl Van, it's scaled well for 6 inch figures. I've got some odds and end pieces still in the mail, but I'm about 80% done with it.

I'll say! Thing's looking tough as hell!

Found these little Barbie accessory packs and one of them had sushi and chopsticks. So I had to check how it scaled.

High Three on the almost completion of Party Wagon 1.0, one of these days I plan to revisit this vehicle with a bit higher caliber work.

B&W...because there is much to be repainted, but I won't have the time until this semester ends.

Oddly enough I've never had Flickr faves near the number of this picture, I guess it was put up in a explore group on there and people saw it...

I still the scale is too staggering that these probably won't be my defacto Bebop and Rocksteady (who is actually a WiP), but for now they'll work. At least until I scale them down a bit.

I wanted an Usagi to go with the NECA figures, so I decided to do my own take. Basically merging the idea of samurai/cowboy analogy, and a little bit of a demon-fighting warrior. Will probably get paired with my Savanti Romero, that has been a WiP for a couple years now...

Playmates is making a new Usagi, but I doubt it'll be as good as yours; it certainly won't be as articulated.

From the low res image floating around the Playmates version is all kinds of weak sauce. One of the many reasons I'm done with Playmates. I'm going to repaint the Wagon you sent me eventually, and I'll likely hold on to that and the props as well as the four Turtles, I'm getting rid of the rest of my Playmates scale stuff however.

Also appreciate the words.

Likewise, I'm down to the four basic Nick Turtles (repainted), your kickass Future Don, and the repainted OOTS Bebop and Rocksteady and vintage Rat King I just got, and the Nick April kitbash and human Karai, both of whom I'll probably eventually part with. A couple other figures I can't think of at the moment, but probably no more than a dozen figures total.

I do however have a small box filled with random accessories and props and things I collected over the years for the sewer. I was thinking I'd send 'em your way; is your antipathy for Playmates such that I shouldn't bother, or would you like me to send it all along just in case you can make some of it work for your big sewer setup?

I gladly accept things like that, they're typically scaled for 6 inch stuff, ala NECA Turtles and the figures I've customized thus far to pair with that line.

Mentioning future characters, I recently got another NECA Bootleg Mikey, I'm pretty sure he'll be getting his arm amputated in the near future and decked out as Future-Mikey, because I don't think my Turtles toys are complete without me making a maimed Michelangelo.

The Playmates stuff I do have I'm hoping to pass on to someone who still appreciated and utilizes that line. Basically however I'm thinning out the bulk of my various toylines due to lack of space for some of the newer lines I'm acquiring. I've sold off the bulk of my Joes stuff apart from a few of those I got from you that I dig and the figures I use in my Lost World-esque setups because I do occasionally like adding stuff to that. I'll be bidding adieu to my Playmates stuff soon hopefully, I'm streamlining Marvel Legends to basically Spider-man and foes or street level heroes/anti-heroes, and some customs I'm working on. I just don't have the space or want to maintain so much if there are other people out there who can appreciate it. In an ideal world I'd have more display space because I really want to get into more diorama building...but that'll have to wait.

I have streamlined my collection to an alarming degree, both in general in recent years and more recently to pay for those Trek figures.

I hope to do so further.

I've said before: if shipping were cheaper or I had a local friend, I'd get rid of stuff all the time!

I'd ask which Playmates figures you're getting rid of, but new Playmates figures are like vintage Playmates figures: once in a while I decide I want some, and then I get them and have no idea what to do with them and want to get rid of them. This time I'll just cut out the middle man, ha ha ha.

I'll ship all that random fodder sometime soon.

Whoa, did you get Cerebral? I've been recently regretting not having done so. Funny how the Figuarts turtles can derail everything in the best way.

I never got him. Mostly because I got into Marvel Legends again. Mostly just the MCU and Spiderman figures.
