    What "different" customs are you currently working on?

    I'm not talking just different characters from the comic or cartoon. or updates of the old characters, I'm talking about stuff that's a bit out there. Everyone knows about my little obsession with rescue Heroes style figures, and that I've made Battle Cat, Orko, and Snout Spout. I'm also working on He-Man in Rescue Heroes style. I've also made an Orko in the style of Fisher Price Little People. Currently, other than my RH He-Man, the "different" custom I'm working on is a He-Man classic 80's Cabbage Patch Kid. Not a classic He-Man, it's an original 80's Kid. I'm also thinking of taking a couple of the 80's Cabbage patch Koosas (basically Cabbage patch Kids that resembled animals, mainly sold for boys who were embarrassed to be carrying "dollies") and making one into a Battle Cat/Cringer, and another into a Loo-Kee doll.

    ZvedaFire had a graet idea with the Alternate Realities Fan Art thread. Is anyone attempting custom figures of famous people as they would appear on Eternia?

    These ideas seem to me to all be "different." Does anyone else have anything even more out there going on in their customs toolbox?

    I started sculpting some MOTU minis to kind of finish up the mini line with the rest of the characters. I started with Count Marzo first. Other than that, I also started on a 1:1 scale Fisto fist, with future plans to make Ram Man's helmet, Mekaneck's helmet,and maybe some other things.

    I've started on a project that's going to take a long time but will be fun and worth it.

    "He-Frog and the Muppets of the Universe"

    Muppet figures done up as Masters of the universe characters.

    It's mostly in the planning stages right now as I'm having a hard time gathering base figures.

    Probably the wierdest thing I'm working (and he's admittedly not THAT wierd) is an update of Comic Cat. Based on the Assault on the Hive episode, I'm making him as a mount for my NA He-Man custom. Base is a ZOIDS Zaber Fang, making him posable, and transformable (into a meteor )

    Not THAT out there, but not too many ZOIDS/MOTU kitbashes pop up ;-)

    I think my Battle Zaber is the only one I've seen...

    Well, I did a Lego Castle Greyskull last sunday. I love how it came out (I had to fudge some colors- but I am very happy with the design). I also did some characters with the minifigs I had available (I especially like Hordak).

    Aside from that, I recently finished a Havok (from X-Men) custom with a 200X He-Man.

    I don't know what I'll do next. I'm always open to ideas.

    HA! Yeah, I forgot about him! I enjoyed your groupshots you posted at some point of your BC collection, Zaber being one of the treats for me (I love ZOIDS) I was also glad to see DeathLiger in there, as I'm working on turning him into a mount for my Felinor custom (Mind you my roomate has designed a different mount for him that she's been using in her comics..)

    Hi.... uhm, I'm new here

    I am about 2 hours worth of work away from finishing She-Ra as a custom My Little Pony - yeah, I know, sounds weird. I wanted to combine two of my favourite toy lines from the 80's. I've also turned a baby pony into kowl, but he is about 8 hours away from completion I think.

    I am going to finish She-Ra once I finish perusing the boards here this morning, save for anything going wrong (knock on wood)

    oh and I'm new to this customizing jazz, so don't expect a masterpiece

    Cynthia
