Hi There, first let me introduce myself! I'm Alvin from the Netherlands and I started customizing a month ago. I'm an artist and graphic designer so painting on a figure was working on "Just another surface". I love the NECA TMNT Mirage line so when I got a vintage Casey Jones in a lot, I immediately grabbed an 6 inch batman from my son's rarely played with action figures pile! Pulled his head off and started customising a NECA style Casey Jones!

Would you want to sell this Casey Jones? I want it and would love to add it to my full set of NECAs. If anything, go build me one if you don't want to sell this one!

That's a great compliment! thanks!

Those custom boxes are sweet! Great job!

I am a designer so this is actually my speciality. Costomizing figures is just a hobby.

Tonight is the big night! I'm curious if this goes for more or less than a real actual NECA figure, lol

Either way, I'm going to win it.

Wow $90! Congrats! You made as much as a regular NECA brand toy. that's amazing

I can't wait to get it! How are you going to keep the figure in place during shipping/transport? Are you using twisties or some sort of tie downs like the regular NECAs? Very curious. The packing looks stellar.

Thank's and congrats on the auction win. The figure is loose right now and the box is to display the figure but the figure is not connecten to the box so you can get him out (the box had an opening back cover). If you want to keep him in the box I can use some twist ties if you'd like.

Sure, gotta keep him nailed down lol

I will most likely get some sort of custom acrylic case made to keep it all in together as a display so he can reside in storage with the full NECA set.

But, I'd like the shredder too.... so let's see and wait if I win that one could you combine shipping since they are all the way from across the pond

Sure! I'll combine shipping!

Thank's for winning both figures! I refunded 13,10 US Dollars for combined shipping. Will probably ship out tomorrow.

Enjoy the figures man!

I'm sure I will. Thank you. Would love to see more work in the future... I'd like to see a NECA version done of METALHEAD and BEBOP and ROCKSTEADY. Those seem like quite the challenge!

Have you considered this place for the clamshells? http://www.collectingwarehouse.com/Product-Home-Page/Plastic-Clamshell-Storage-Display-Cases/

I received both the custom Casey Jones and Shredder yesterday in the mail from the Netherlands to the United States.

I would recommend his quality and highly detailed craftsmanship to anyone I know. I am proud to add both figures to my legendary TMNT Collection. Thank you, Alvin! I have already ordered 2 custom slide boxed acrylic cases to protect your awesome packaging.

Thanks again

Looking forward to a KRANG. HINT HINT HINT :D

You should totally just sell it to me this time instead of wasting your ebay and paypal listing fees. You and I both should know I'm going to win it anyway.
