Connor O'Bain's customs
 
Hola Chaps and Chappettes!
Its Been a while but I am kickstarting my creative side in the hopes that I can finish off some of the many (many) customs TMNT customs i have on the go.

and this time instead of spamming up the forum with multiple threads I am just going to have one thread of which i will be updating with new customs and new photos of old customs as i have a new photo set up.

Most of these customs will be for sale unless otherwise stated so if you are interested shoot me a PM.

Anyway! First up is my latest custom Krang in his android body!

Krang is made from a Hero Mashers Juggernaught body/Colossus head with sculpted details. Krang himself is full sculpted but non removable. He stands 7.5 inches tall and has 10 points of articulation.

As always comments/thoughts/criticisms welcome.

Nice Work! Great to see you back too. Since you used a mashers are you going to have any alternate arms/hands?

Cheers, It's good to be back.

I actually have plans to make a version two very soon with alternative hands and a light up feature but i need to finish a some of my back catalog first

You need a piece of cellophane to complete it.

I'm just getting started custom painting figures, what type of paint do you use? I got acrylic matte and it came out horribly...so I need to get the right kind.

Optimus Primer 08-25-2017 06:11 PM

EPIC Krang, Connor! Unique base, too! :tgrin:

I use Citadels and Vallejos. I get them at my comic shop, but they're available online, too.

That Krang looks really good. I'm surprised at how well the Hero Mashers base works for him.

As always seeing pics of that Bludgeon blow me away with the quality and amount of dedication you must've put into making it. Makes me wish that we'd get official figures that look that good.

You sir, make great customs! :)

Up next, karai.
Made from the sentinel wave x-23 figure with sculpted details.
Stands 6 inches tall.
17 points of articulation.

This was my last custom before taking a break and looking at it after that break there are a few things i would like to change but in the mean time here she is.

Not so interesting fact the claws from x-23's feet became the front most blades on her shredder gauntlet

as always comments/thoughts/criticisms welcome

Hello Technodromers!

Latest custom from me, Mutagen man version 2. used the nick turtles Mutagen man main body but completely scratch built the limbs and interior from polymer clay and hot glue. The limbs are jointed using magnets which lets them be interchanged and like the last one has a light up feature (which doesn't show up too well in these photos)

Not 100% happy with him but i recon by the next one (and there will be) I might be close to it but as always comment/thoughts/criticisms welcom

DarkFell 04-27-2018 01:02 PM

You got Cryin' Houn down pat, that's for certain.

Your take on Karai is also neat.

GReat!!
 
Your customs are incredibles.

connor_obain 02-20-2019 03:06 AM

Its getting to the point that I only seem to be posting annually but i hope to remedy that with a good few customs. In the meantime a wee peek of whats coming next

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7825/...e9df6cfb_n.jpg

Leo656 02-20-2019 04:08 AM

Very cool stuff.

I've recently started dabbling in Customs but haven't completed any projects yet. I like to take a look at what people are doing, and it's very inspiring.

Your ideas are outside the box and you execute them well. Nice work.

I’m looking forward to seeing this one. Vid vicious to my knowledge has never had a custom made of him.

oldmanwinters 02-20-2019 07:38 AM

Yeah, Vid Vicious!

rinascimento 02-20-2019 01:29 PM

krang really have a look that flows with the concept of the character.

As far as I can tell it might be the first buuuut I pretty much got him "finished" and then wasnt happy with a few bits soooo i've taken him apart to re do some stuff. so he might be a while longer.

For some reason he is one of the TMNT Villains that really stuck with me and I have been wanting to do a custom of him for a while

Thanks, just picked up another figure that i think will make a pretty cool base for another Krang.

VaughnMichael 02-23-2019 08:12 AM

Cryin' Hound looks fantastic! I've been wanting to do one myself but I was waiting for a larger 4 armed figure.
This works so great with the Playmates line though!

TurtleManiac 02-26-2019 03:49 PM

They all look awesome! Vid Vicious looking good so far!

connor_obain 03-14-2019 10:20 AM

Meet my take on the Shredder

Pretty simple recipe, sculpted the armour from polymer clay and milliput and kept most of the original paint Couldn't decide if I liked the shoulder paladins or not so I made them detachable with magnets.

As always, thoughts, comments and criticisms are welcome

Monte Williams 08-25-2019 02:46 PM

Your one-of-a-kind customs are incredible, man. Truly stellar work.

And some deep-cut character choices, too!

Thank you,I really like the style proportions of the disney toybox figures and think they lend themselves well to the TMNT style. Already got several more in the works

I'm afraid he was on ebay but got sold. I would consider doing another as a commission though.

Hope y'all are well : )
