Custom Vintage style She-Ra and Adora (from doll to action figure)

A typical case of doll vs action figure! My customer wanted more of an action figure than a doll (I'm not a doll specialist, I don't do rooted hair or fabric dresses) so the rooted hair was replaced with a sculpted version (Adora) or the hair of the MOTUC figure (She-Ra)  which surprisingly, fits quite well with some minor mods. After the fabric clothing was replaced with sculpted cartoon costumes, Adora and her alter ego were ready to join their fellow rebels! Check the video at: http://bit.ly/2ruRsr9

Custom Kittrina Masters of the Universe classics figure from "The cat and the spider"

Kittrina! After a customer commissioned me a regular version, I kinda wanted to do a battle armored take on the wild feline. In the video you can see the sculpt stages of the head which was the most difficult part of the character. This wouldn't  have been possible without the help from the fountain of MOTU knowledge that is James Eatock. Thank you James!  Check the video at: http://bit.ly/2m8BUW9

Custom New 52 style Hawkman (Dc Multivers 3.75 inch scale)

He was a commission I took that had to be made in less than a month for a birthday. Based off his looks in The New 52, the choice was made of using the Hercules base body for a bulkier look. The armor was painstakingly sculpted out of apoxie, the wings on his head donated by the dismal Mattel infinite Hawkman and the wings from an Angel figure. After a paint job that included hours of shading and highlights, Hawkman joined her collection in time. You can see his video with extra WIP shots here: http://bit.ly/2m3AKII

Quick Marvel Select Gambit makeover

I wanted a more Jim Lee look for him so I painted the eyes (they were reversed) gave him a blue collar, then added a more vibrant metallic red in his torso with subtle muscle definition and then darker metallic blue for the belt and boots and voila! Jean St Jean did a magnificent job on the sculpt of this figure and thus remains untouched (it would be sacrilege!)

Nothing can be left implied: social media bashing

When you make a mistake, is always better to own it. When you try to shift the blame on circumstances or persons, people can perceive you as flaky or non trustworthy. When you have a distaste for something or someone is always manly to look at that person and say it openly without wearing a social mask. That is the mark of a man and a quality to be respected. We all make mistakes, whether certain comments were aimed at me or someone else, is always better to say it directly,... kindly, and with truth from your heart or people will interpret it the way they feel. In social media nothing can be left "implied" -People are Waaay to clever for that- They always know who you are talking about. Others will speculate the hell out of it and the only one affected will be you and your reputation.

I hold no ill will to anyone who participated in that podcast  bashing, specially in these moments when I'm mourning the loss of a dear relative but I had to pause my usual toy related posts to address this issue. Be kind to each other! We don't know how long we have in this earth. life is too short to waste it in petty arguments. Love my MOTU community now and always. Now let's leave this behind and go create something and make the night bright!

Custom Dc Universe classics Andrea Beaumont PHANTASM from Batman Mask of the Phantasm

Where to begin with this one...The Phantasm has always been my fave , plus the story with Andrea and Bruce really broke my teenager heart back in 1995. I had to make a figure worthy of Andy with the modern figures of today. Since the DCUC female base body is too scrawny, I waited patiently and when Marvel Legends started releasing their uber articulated females, I knew this was my chance!

The Marvel Legends female base figures are buff enough without looking too manly. The cowl  was sculpted from scratch using flexible apoxie for the lower parts, The mask was also sculpted from scratch.  I did used the scythe of the old Kenner figure, however the gap on the side was filled up, straps resculpted, and the entire blade painted.

In addition I gave her a swappable head sculpted with Andrea's hair and interchangeable hand. I love how this one turned out and will stand proudly next to  the one from Dc Collectibles!

This figure was made back in 2014 with the video being published on February 2015. You can watch the video  here
