Thanks guys for the compliments! Here we have a couple of things i did years ago for a contest that was held, and I never posted them in my thread (as far as I can tell) I had been experimenting a lot with a bag of warhammer/40K bitz that i got from ebay. I always liked this guy, and his walker (made from Prof. X's hoverchair) but I always felt it was too red. I would like to go back at some point and add some splashes of another color or two, to break up all the red.

Anyway, here he is...

I call this whole setup, the Snake Walker.


Thanks for looking!

very nice. if you don't mind me asking, where did you get that snake head?

Thanks guys! If I had one guess, it was from a 25th Anniversary Serpentor figure. I will try to locate one to make sure. but i was able to slip a regular minimate head, as well as an old venom tongue head underneath with no problems.

Thanks again! Nerv!

So awesome man!

Yikes...... looks like i lost quite a few pages in my customs thread....

I'll have to repost a bunch of stuff .... but for now, a work in progress. I always felt weird about wip shots, but this is at a stage where it looks pretty cool as is. I plan on repainting the legs, and adding a chest cap (hoping to mimic the original with a see thru panel. I started this a few months back, but couldn't quite finish it before i had to pack everything up for a move, I took this pic before i packed him up, not even sure what box he's in..I don't know when i'll get to finish it, as I haven't even opened any of my stuff since we moved in. ok, enough yapping, here is my WIP of a petty cool bad guy,

Zartan, from GI Joe

Would you cast it in clear? Not sure I've seen any of your clear-casts, but I love your chromes!

Oooh, camouflage Zartan. Or bluish-green Zartan in homage to his color-changing roots. Hurry up and finish Zartan so you can get started on Zartan variants. 

Have fun at Disney!

This is amazing! What legs did you use? And is that a Grim Reaper torso?



The legs are from the new plants vs. zombies pirate captain. as soon as i saw them, i knew what i was using them for, lol

yes, its grim reaper torso and arms.


ps. i originally had the kidpool scarf on him and it looked great, but the hair/hat wouldn't fit right. when i get another one of those headpieces i am gonna trim it down, and paint all the red parts to match.

Hey guys and gals, just wanted to load a bunch of the stuff that got lost when the big forum update happened. Lookin g forward to working on and finishing some projects here in the next few months. 99% of my stuff is still in boxes from when i moved (back in May, Sheesh)

I am crossing my fingers and hoping I see something from Toyfair (should be seeing stuff , right? ) that get my minimate juices flowing again ... I want to be excited again about minimates because lately its been "meh" for me.
