Dolphin v2 Saint Seiya Myth Cloth Custom Figure ドルフィン

This is my second version of the Dolphin Saint, one of the Ghost Saints. I made him over a Hyoga Cygnus body, using some parts of his armour and resculpting the rest. This must be one of the few depictions of a Dolphin in an evil way :) . 





Turytt Green Lantern DC Custom Action figure

This is Turytt, the Doomsdayesque Green Lantern of sector 786. A curious character to make. At the start I thought about doing him over a MOTUC body, but in the end I thought it would look too short and shabby, so I went for a wrestling deluxe body with Mongul's head. Sculpted bone protuberances, logo and hair, and energy construct out of molten plastic. Sorry for the pictures, I took them with my mobile phone messing around with the settings and I am afraid they are rather too bright.





April O'Neill Classic TMNT Vintage Cartoon custom figure Neca

I've just finished this custom figure of April O Neill, as she appeared in the original TMNT cartoon. One of those characters I could do nearly with my eyes closed, having seen her so many times. A iconic character from the 80s. Made over a Neca April O Neill figure, head of Wasp ML.

Jean Grey X-Men:Red (Marvel Legends) Custom Action Figure

Here is Jean Grey in his modern X-Men red suit. A cool upgrade of the character, one of the few important characters that have been bold enough to change colour and suit. It varies awfully from one issue to another, so it was quite difficult to stick with one depiction. Used a Marvel Legends woman, I think another kind of Jean Grey, head and hair from fodder parts. This is my 599th custom, get ready for my 600th one!

Sunspot Marvel Legends custom figure

Here it is Sunspot, a custom I made in late december for a fellow collector. I was asked for a Sunspot, and the client chose the kind of painting along with the uniform. I happened to have a very good base figure to start with (an apparently failed custom of Ghost Rider I bought headless) and a head of a Human Torch riding a bike, which although the figure was just for little kids and had no value whatsoever, the head was very well done, and suited the character perfectly. After careful sanding, sculpting of the extra parts, and removable flames, here it is, Sunspot.



Batgirloid DC Direct Custom Figure

This is my first custom of 2019. Sort of a kitbash, really. I got this Batgirl without leg nor hair, and it struc me I could make a cool cyborg version of her.

History; After being gravely injured, Batman activates his "android" plan to save Batgirl. Having learned from the process that transformed Vic into Cyborg from the Justice League, so is born Batgirloid, half machine, half avenging superhero!

Hope you like it. I used a Jade leg, and she features a removable extra robotic hair. God knows where the batarang came, it was just there at the right moment.

The name is not very definitive, I was doubting between IABat, Robobatress, and many more.

Filmation Two Bad (Masters of the Universe) custom figure


This is Two Bad Filmation style. I always thought it was very weird how he had his arms in the original figure. I cut out the arms, put them in normal "human" way, sculpted the armour a bit more, and repainted completely the whole thing. I am sure the original figure would have been much more popular if made like this!





Cable Classic Marvel Legends X-Force custom figure


2018 have been a very busy year for me, and I still have tons of customs to show! this is a Classic Cable, as in his many 90s appearances (curiously, my first one). The regular figures seem to never fulfill the character. He-Ro's head, LOTR cloak, random fodder weapon, sculpted poaches, random gear and hair and voilà, hardcore rugged classic Cable ready for action.
