Here is my latest custom, MOTU Classics Warduke. Dungeons & Dragons is a line with lots of potential that hasn't received modern figure treatment. Possibly the best of the line, this is Warduke, in full MOTUC style.
I did another version of him a few years ago, but now I have much improved, using a flesh tone body, and my increased skills in all aspects of customizing since then. Hope you like him.
Here is Queen Teela. I wanted to make a MOTUC custom to use some of the spare packaging I had lying around, and thought that it would be a good idea, knowing there are so many "King He-Mans", I thought it was about time of a Queen Teela. A bit of a cross between Marlena, Sorceress and Teela herself.
This is the bio I have come up with;
After the death of King Randor in order to stop Horde Prime from entering Eternia and conquering the whole Eternian dimension, Queen Marlena stepped down and gave the crown to Prince Adam, which, after having defeated Skeletor, declared himself to Teela and revealed his secret identity. After the disappearance of the Sorceress, Teela became the new Sorceress, and so, both king and queen fight against evil in their secret identities.
Let me know any comments and impressions you might have, I'd love to read them.
Here I present you my latest custom, Compactor. Always thought he was the second best in the Create a character contest that Fearless Photog won. Decided to make him in his modern mini-comic looks, with an heroic face. Been thinking about making him since I found some suction cups that came free in a cereal pack ages ago. Finally got round to do it.
Made also a custom packaging box to reuse some of the ones I kept around but never used.
Hello everybody again, after a loong time without making nor posting customs here I go with a small batch of some customs I made early this year.
This year my brother gave me as a gift the Manga Dead Spawn, which is a quite impressive figure, but I really don't dig all the sort of rotten flesh he had all over. Plus, the skull head didn't convince me either, and the visor didn't fit ok. So, and with all respect to the loving gift of my brother, I did him a nice revamp, which although easy to do, achieved quite the result I wanted. I epoxied and covered all the flesh and head, resculpted the head visor and mouth piece, and painted a intrincate techno pattern.
In my multiverse, he is a Techno God called "Interkhan" which is embroiled in a endless war between other robot gods. Hope you like it.

I return to the customizing world with this rather unusual custom, a new style of Phalanx with japanese styling, Anime/Manga sort of. It is a mixture of a bootleg Digimon figure, + legs of the 200x MOTU flying eagle vehicle, hair of Blackheart, and the rest is sculpting.
When I had in hand the Myth Cloth Hagen Merak figure, I saw it wasn't what I was expecting. Normally the Myth are either flawless or very good, except the first figures they made. But this figure, although it was made after many great figures, had some important defects, defects that weren't permissible in a figure that has this value and with the quality of this line.
So, with some tweaks I tried to lift it up to standard.
This is how it was;
AND HERE WITH THE MODIFICATIONS;
I repainted his face, giving him the correct tone of flesh, before it was too pale. I repainted the eyes, and I repainted the armour to make it red instead of pink. And I repainted the eyes of the mask. And I took the small wings of the feet and glued them directly to the leg protection to prevent the tube effect of the original figure that spoils it.
This is a old custom I didnt post before due to lack of time. Here is Abel, the main villain in one of Saint Seiya Knights of the Zodiac OVAS. He more or less should be Apolo, but due to the author not authorizing Toei to use the character, they invented a different god, with very similar powers and name.
In the OVA, he doesn't wear armour, but I've followed a fanart to make him more interesting.
