Spiffy-a-dee-doo-dah! Magnificent work there, as always. Ye've reminded me that I need to touch up my own MMSS.

I too, have major trouble with eye painting. I can never get the coronas in so it looks weird with all white and just a dot.

These look great, Sarah! I especially like the Shredder (natch) and Donnie.

Terminator Don might be the greatest thing I've ever seen. Please tell me in detail how you did it or sell it to me. My life won't be complete. Now you need to make Rambo Raph, Lethal Weapon Leo, and Robo Michelangelo (Robocop).

no, the legs are from another unknown junker. the fig was already missing the head, which is probably why I don't know what it is.

yeah, that's always the hardest part of a custom for me. the other day I was working on a new Shredder custom and I tried to paint his eyes but I kept messing up. I had to paint/repaint the same spot 6 times before I got tired of it and went to work on another custom.

this was probably the fastest custom that Ive ever done. most of them take a minimum of at least a few hrs, and some of them can take up to a few weeks depending on the work involved. I think this was a fast custom cause I didn't plan it, I just grabbed 2 junkers and went to work.

well, basically I just cut the limbs from both Punker Don and Metalhead, switched them and glued them on. I used a dremel to cut the limbs, but since they're PVC/hard rubber you might be able to use a sharp knife to do it. after I drilled the hole in the chest, I used some engine parts for the guts from a old car model kit. I also got the eye piece from the same kit, it was just a small piece of extra plastic so I had to sand and shape it to look like a eye. I recommend you use a dremel cause it only took 1 min to reshape it. then I added some red paint for the blood around the eye and the hole in the chest, and painted the limbs and body. simple and fun.

'Tis indeed what I meant. It was late and I was tired (although I did not get to sleep until much, much later than that).

Also - as I am not familiar with most alcohol, I did not make the connection there.

Well, here are my entries for the contest.

Tournament Fighters Cyber Shredder - though I guess he can also be a regular Shredder too. most of the work I had to do was on his head, I had to drill a hole to give him a ball jointed neck so now his head can rotate better. I also did a few small adjustments on his helmet. I wanted to paint his eyes but every time I tried I couldnt get it right so I decided to leave them unpainted. I think it looks better this way cause he looks more sinister. I also had to use different arms for him cause the base fig I used originally had sleeves. I wanted him to have more articulation so he could do more of the moves from the game, but Im happy with the way it came out.





Topless April - this is what happens when you're up at 2 in the morning with nothing to do. this was a fun custom to do but it actually took alot longer than I thought it would, the hardest part was sanding down the sleeves on her arms cause they are made with PVC so it took a while to get it smooth, and I had to resculpt the whole chest area to give her breasts. it's hard to tell from the pic cause she's pale and cause of the flash, but if you look closely you can see the curves. and for those of you that are wondering, yes, she has nipples, I decided to paint them pink cause most natural redheads have pink nipples.





Terror Bear - I based him on the Terror Bears characters from the TMNT RPG. this is basically my own updated version of the characters, so I wrote a small bio to explain the concept behind it...

After the original Terror Bears were severely injured in a explosion, the four bears had to have their personalities transferred into a single, massive new body in order to survive. in addition to retaining their original abilities, this upgraded body gives them increased strength and technological capabilities that as individuals they didn't have before. the only flaw is that the minds of the 4 bears are constantly arguing with eachother for control, but regardless of their differences, they share the same goal. and with their relentless rage and this new advanced body, the Terror Bear is a unstoppable monster that is hellbent on unleashing destruction on the world.

btw, the Mikey is just in the pic to show the size difference.

Topless April. How are you going to explain that display to your kids?

Cyber Shredder! Awesome!

Terror Bear is scary. I like your bio with the multiple personalities. Schizo bear.

Great work! (now sell me april....)


PS Did I have enough smilies in this post, or should I add more?

Nice work, Sarah! They're all pretty wicked -- especially that Terror Bear amalgam! Well, I guess April isn't so much wicked, as, um, soft and inviting? We need an uncensored pic for the 18+ crowd.

Also, I wish I had a finished Cyber Shredder.
