    Some New Vintage Creations....

    Hi All,

    Just finished a new batch of customs. I'm a big time filmation fan so that is where I think most of my future customs are going to come from. I've had a lot of great advice on this round of figures from the veteran customizers on the board so thanks all. The Demo Man uses the Hordak head like E-Man's, the Snake Teela is like Tyke's paint job and the accessory snake is like the toyboys version as is the Octavia. Gotta give credit to the guys I'm copying off of.)

    Cheers all and enjoy!

    PS i'll post some photos of my custom collection this weekend, I've put together a good handful of customs from all over so I think its time to share.)

    Definitions: you are one of the best vintage customizers that I ever seen. Your figures are awesome. I really want to see your work with classics figures.

    They all look very nice. Specially Snake Teela. She looks AWESOME! Her hair makes her look like Medusa!

    Holy HECK....with some customs, you have taken what's been done before made 110% improvement! With others, you've tackled characters many vintage customizers have avoided to make due to the complexity of the figure! I am so loving this batch of customs it hurts!

    You're one of my TRUE favorite vintage customizers! So awesome.

    *cracks whip* now go make some more!

    These are awesome. My Snake Teela has been thrown back into the fodder box out of frustration that I could not get those lines to look right. You did a good job!!
    My favorites by far are Kor and (especially) Kothos. Not only have I never seen 'em made before, you made them look like they stepped right out of the Filmation cartoon.
    And your Demo-Man... puts mine to shame! Awesome!

    Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the feedback Lord of Caos - im afraid of MOTUC lol so not quite yet but glad you like my vintages.) E-man, you are nuts to think your Demo Man isn't as good mine, yours is deadly and i basically copied it to the letter so you the "e-man"!

    I like the Teela too, the hair was pretty fun to make and E I have to agree with the filmation characters in that I think the colors of the cartoon transfer nicely to the figures. Now that Tyke is on my back to make more I guess I will have to keep going.) My goal... and its lofty, is to make/collect all the characters in the filmation series... I have a bunch of customs that I had commissioned from the pro's (Tyke, Mulder, Toyboys, Josephus and Artiste) but am going to try to make some myself. I think this is fun stuff and it's nice to have a group of people to share it with...so thanks everyone, glad to be part of the org forsure. For some reason my wife isn't as in to it as me?!? couldn't imagine why... lol

    Yeah I don't get that! My wife, too, think it's just silliness: It's a bunch of muscular men running around in their underwear, lol! OH, well, maybe that says more about us? joking!

    I love the fact that one of Octavia's tentacles is holding a (pretty screen-accurate) sword! That just made my day. She's one of my favs.

    Hopefully without sounding too critical, I'm not sure about Snake Teela's cane. The upper portion brings to mind some experiences I've had when over-squishing a tube of toothpaste But overall, I love the details, and that you've given credit to the people that inspired you!

    Good call on the cane... i agree as well. I had a bit of extra apoxie sculpt so i just rolled it up and made a snake. Easy fix to shift back and i agree it may be a little much. Thanks for the feedback, all advice is good advice and thats why i posted them.

    The octavia sword is from a fisher price viking set... i used the helmet for my vikor so i thought i would throw the sword in the tentacle. Glad you like it!
