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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Thanks for the comments, Vid is on his way but in the meantime here's my take on the Origami Ninja





He's made from a Disney toybox Miles Morales Spiderman figure and there are more photos of him over at my Flickr page

Up next...... The foot Lieutenant

Please excuse the poor photos, didn't have my usual set up (and the difference is sooooo noticeable [/sarcasm])

But as i said earlier, here is my take on the rise of the turtles Foot Lieutenant





He is made from a Disney toybox Kylo Ren figure, the head and sword are completly scratch sculpted and he has a removable magnetic flame. there are more photos of him over on my flicker page if your interested

as always, thoughts comments and criticisms are welcome : )

next up Foot Brute (or vid vicious. both are near completion)
