Custom Toys Roundup (Dec 7)
AVATAR666 has been extremely prolific of late, with two customs to show this round - the above being VEGETITA (from Dragonball) made from a Foomi Micro Munny (see WIPs here) and shown below, is a swell TEQUILLA MICTLANTECUHTLI - made from a Tequila vinyl from Muttpop (see WIPs here). Sculpting and painting = powerful combo!
Ian Ziobrowski shares with us his newest Commission "Old Dirty Bastard" aka Baby Jesus from Wu Tang Clan, in his Killa Beez outfit. Check out the relaunch of his website www.ianziobrowski.com at 12noon Eastern today.
"The platform used was a 8" dunny, at first I thought it was gonna be tough cause the face structure of a dunny is wide and not tall. So designing ODB was hard at first. But after a few drawings and getting some paint down things moved a lot quicker and easier. This was one of my favorite customs of the year and can't wait to start creating the rest of the crew for 2013! Shimmy shimmy ya, shimmy yam, shimmy yay!"
I first posted the work-in-progess of CAPTAIN AMERI-CAT King Negora from Mark Nagata of Max Toy Co HERE - Now witness the result of the cat-hero-homage! This custom will be heading for the Negora show at the One-Store in Tokyo (Jan-Feb 2013), alongside Mecha Virus. Now he needs to do the rest of the Negora Avengers! (Heh)
INFILTRATOR is a custom 4" Munny by Sam De Jesus (who has a penchant for "frogs", check out his earlier work with Battletoads!), and was done for TOYSREVIL 'Black Friday' event. Note that 20% of sales proceeds of this item will go towards the American Red Cross for 'Disaster Relief' (to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy). The reminder of the sales proceeds will go towards Sam himself. TOYSREVIL does not take a cut from this item.
This item is valid for purchase HERE, with sales ending January 23rd, 2013. This item will be shipped to you direct from artist!
