HipsterDufus created these updated versions of Captain Power and I’m super pumped. Hopefully Mattel or Hasbro will pick this line up and include the rad TV (or maybe even internet) powered action features.
I really wish there was a group shot form Sillof‘s Gaslight Legion of Doom figures along with their JLA counterparts. Check out all of them here. I really appreciate his ingenuity and imagination, taking these well-known characters and putting a different spin in them. Seriously, how can you not like that adorably dandy Sinestro?
It’s like Mini-Myte designed this set to appeal specifically to me. I love me some Jason and of course, I’m a big MiniMate fan, so this is right up my alley. Get on these Diamond! I need some slashers in my Christmas Village next year.
Again, I can’t resist awesome MiniMates and these black and white Beatles from their movie A Hard Days Night are indeed awesome. Luke Porter has done some stuff for ToyFare if I remember correctly and he always does a great job.
This is but one of the many fantastic Green Lanterns created by The Knights Round Table. Do yourself a favor and click this link to give them all a look. There’s even a Black Lantern in there!
Ending with these Contest of Champions International Heroes figures is kind of funny because I’m honestly not familiar with many of these characters. But, Ibentmyman-thing’s Marvel Legends-style figures are not only really well done, but the painting is spot on and not too shiny. I’ve looked through hundreds of custom figures in the past week and that’s the one big thing that seems to set the great apart from the pretty good.
So, after being steeped in so many customs lately, I’m going to do a couple of my own. One’s a secret because I’m surprised that no one has ever done it, but the other will be a Guy Gardner Warrior figure from when he had the tattoos and could morph and whatnot (hey, that was my jam back then). Hopefully you’ve seen some rad figures and will maybe be giving the whole customizing thing a shot yourself.
