Post your recent non-TMNT customs

Seeing as how we post TMNT customs in the TMNT toys & collectibles section, I think it's appropriate to post non-TMNT customs here. I'll start it off with my most recent works:

Flowering Cactoid (PS2: Final Fantasy 12)



More photos/information.



Chocobot (Gameboy: Final Fantasy Adventure/Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden)



More photos/information.



NapalmMan.EXE (Gameboy Advance: Mega Man Battle Network 2/5)



More photos/information.



Launch Octopus (SNES: Mega Man X)



More photos/information.


Sargasso, The Queen of Kelp (Original)



More photos/information.

I was just thinking about a thread like this since I'm actually working on some non-TMNT customs for once.

Great stuff. The Chocobot is from the GameBoy FFs, you say? I thought they were a joint venture between Mattel and the Mars company! But seriously, I've never seen one before. That's probably my favorite of 'em all... a MechaWark!

Chocobot is from the Gameboy Final Fantasy Adventure game (also remade recently as Sword of Mana for the GBA), which is actually the first installment in the Mana (Seiken Densetsu) series of games. Chocobot, NapalmMan.EXE, and Launch Octopus were my three entries for the recent robot/cyborg contest at Figure Realm.com. Sargasso was my entry for the previous contest at the same site (original characters theme), and Flowering Cactoid I made just for the heck of it.

I need to get better pics, 'cause I snapped these off in the wee mornin' hours before I dashed off to work, and they didn't come out as expected - even with compared to other pics I've done with this phone.


Godfather William

William is a character from a story I once did. He's a yakuza boss in the Northwestern U.S. He prefers to be called 'godfather' rather than the traditional 'oyabun' for some reason.



Parts used:
Foot Soldier (2003, Playmates) Body
Casey Jones (2003, Playmates) Head
Leonardo (2003, Playmates) Swords
Karai (2007, Playmates) Loincloth
Longer hair, boots, and wrist guards sculpted with Mighty Putty

EDIT: BETTER PICTURES!

William is a pretty cool looking character--is he finished? If so, the paintwork is pretty basic; again, I'd suggest some washes or dry brushing to kick things up a notch. The white areas would probably look neat with some kind of pattern on them too (dragons, or whatever). The Yakuza are well known for their elaborate tattoos as well (although they generally cover them in public), that might be another idea for spicing up the appearance on the arms.


Here's another quick one I recently finished, a 'Mammon' from Final Fantasy IV.



More photos/information.

Those look great, Patraw! I'm still waiting for some kind of a tutorial from you regarding the creation of these things.

Ninjinister: I like your interesting custom as well! He kinda reminds me of a Mortal Kombat character.

Yeah, he's finished. I've got a bit of light gray accented areas that's hard to tell from the pics, but I didn't want to do a wash or drybrush. I'm trying my first wash job on the figure I'm doing now.

His tattoo is... well... telling would be a spoiler XD

Mammon and Chuck are cool. Decap Attack kind of miffed me since it was basically Sega ripping off their own awesome game (Psycho Fox on the Master System), but it wasn't overall terrible. I always thought the face-on-the gut that shot out was creepy as Hell. I like how your figure's more stylized after the in-game sprite than the cover.
