  1. Demmon w/ MS9 - original charactersI designed. I really like the style of the MTF legs, and Cyborg Star Wars characters. I thinned down the nub of the waist peg and drilled a hole in the SBD and sculpted them both in place. Head is a Durge cast, fitted the same way. The gun is from Morrof, with a gundam part glued to the end for better detail. The mouse droid has been filled with putty to add weight and help it roll better. Gun is from the bits box.
  2. I always loved the character, but his only released figure was absolute garbage. I was lucky enough to get one with an arm missing for $5. The listing didn't include the light sabre, but when it arrived, it was in the package, which was great. The parts popped off pretty easily. I cut down the Sith Trooper's neck and used the barbell. The head didn't need modification, so just a hole dremelled in the ST's neck got the head to fit perfectly. The loincloth was a bit more tricky. I hade to dremel out the inside of the waist section until a tiny lip remained, then used the disc attachment to grind a channel around the waist. I popped the upped torso off, heated the belt and prised it into place. Lastly, I swapped out the hands for some MTF versions. Very happy with the result. It's totally updated, without losing the vibe of the original.
  3. So the new one doesn't have translucent plastic?
  4. My latest custom. Faker is my favourite character, and this is the 15th Faker custom I have made. I added a metal rod into the sword to stop warping. The concept is by my good friend Brad Beck, with parts commissioned from Barbarossa customs. Painted with Citadel paints.
  5. Made from scratch. Took me three months, but it was fun to make. I split it into three sections - vintage style, Filmation style throne room, and Slime pit box art. Also made a few customs to tie in with it, with more to follow.

  6. Termineyetor - I wanted to make a robot guy, but ended up with this. He's a mech suit to transport the eyeball, much like Optikk. Head and armour are from Optikk, torso and arms from Blast attak, Legs from Multi bot, claw from the weapons pak, scissors from Cy-Chop. Really pleased with the final result here, he's fully playable.
  7. Thanks for the front page! More pics on my FB page - IDH custom toys ;-)
  8. Emperor Jitsu This was one intesive build! I harvested parts from the staction and grafted them onto an MotUC buck. I retained all but the ankle articulation. The armour is free sculpted over some palace guard armor. Very happy with this one!
  9. Power of Grayskull He-Man. When all hope seems lost, even for He-Man, he calls upon the very spirit of his ancestors combining the power of every He-Man throughout the centuries! Made with a cast Hellboy fist and scratchbuilt shield from MasterEnglish customs, and cast boots, left hand, sword and armour from karakNul's customs.
  10. Emerald Tiger I made this guy as part of my Ninja wars MotUC saga. The head is from Count Marzo with the hair sculpted on, body is Daw-o-tor with parts from a PotC figure, legs from Zodac, boots from Snakeface, a cast Fisto hand, left hand from Bow, a test shot Ninjor sword, and a repainted Horde imp.
  11. I always loved the game Silent Hill, and thought this would be a great crossover custom. The head is scratchbuild from ABS plastic, painted and weathered. It's mounted on a regular MotUC head so pops on and off like regular heads. The Great knife was made in the same way as the head, with some extra parts sculpted on. The leg extensions have a metal bar drilled into the calves for stability and durability, then sculpted over. The overall height is 9" Red Pyramid
  12. I made the guy using two Zodac bodies drilled and bolted together with an inch long screw. The ab section of the top torso was sculpted, as was the face section. The armour is cut and glued to a leather section and is removable. The gun is cast so no paint chips. The head has matt and gloss clearcoat to emphasise the metal and glass parts. The figure is 100% play ready and factory durable.
