Welcome to the thread for my personal and commissioned custom work.

I am accepting commissions, but in an effort to not get overwhelmed I will take on 4 commissions at a time with the expectation that w/in 30 days of the receiving the head it will be completed, hopefully approved and sent back.

I'm also open to resculpting work, different scales and full customs; but these would be on a case by case basis and time permitting.

Current Commissions
Group 1:Closed
1)


Group 2: Closed
1)

Group 3: Closed
1)

The price will be $75 plus shipping ($6.80 US, $15 Int.) per head, I can dremmel necks if needed.


Here are some recent examples of my work:

and After



Resculpt and paint


Painted, customized body, suit, accessories leg wraps

Re: Galactiboy's Customs and Kitbashes of Terror!!!

A couple days ago I completd an upgrade of the Sideshow Evil Ash figure. For a figure that's over 10 years old the base components were pretty impressive, he just needed a bit of paint and work. I ported him over to a Pro 1.1 body and then repainted and weathered everything.
















And, in case you were unfamiliar with the stock figure:

And one final figure for tonight... before Evil Ash I finished a Possessed Ash from Evil Dead II.

The head is from Betomatalia and was painted by him. I ended up removing he neck and putting him on a TTL body with a fixed neck. The rest was kitbashed and altered/weathered. I also added a bit of gloss to the head and neck to give him that wet look he had on screen.

Damn man you got some skills!! I love the Evil Ash and the Chewbacca is the best I've seen. If there was a better head option out there that looked more like him I'd say it is as good as any Chewbacca could ever be in this scale

Nice work mate keep them coming :rock

What do you have planned next?
Thanks man, I'm not sure... I need to finish a Walrus Man I started a month or so ago. I basically need to figure out how to make webbed boots. I've got a few figures I made a couple years ago I want to take a 2nd attempt at.

I want your Mumm-Ra. Sell it to me.


Glad you're back into customs.
Great work.
Thanks man :duff

I appreciate it... it's hard to make a Chewbacca that doesn't look completely ridiculous. I still think mine has a bit of a silly expression; but you're really limited when there is a lot of fur involved :lol

Re: Galactiboy's Customs and Kitbashes of Terror!!!

Here's a couple more recent projects.

First up is a set of Ghostbuster figures. Peteskywalker provided the paint for these, I just did the assembly and weathering. The heads are of course from Spenser and the rest is mostly the Mattel figures with a few upgraded pieces.

I also completed a couple of Star Wars customs within the last year or so... some of these I did share in the Star Wars subforum.

Walrus Man:
I sculpted the head and painted it, the outfit was made by D-Art Studios and they did a kickass job for me. And the rest was kitbashed pieces. Last bit left is to make the webbed boots, hope to get that done this week.​







With a Blue Snaggletooth custom


Upgraded Phase 1 Clone:
Just added the better ribbed bodysuit and repainted the armor:​



Tauntaun Wall Hanging:

A modified and repainted Hasbro Tauntaun head.​





Pruneface:
This is one that I left unfinished for over a year. The head and paint are mine, the vest and poncho was made by Vivisect. The rest was kitbashed mainly from the Endor Troopers.​

Re: Galactiboy's Customs and Kitbashes of Terror!!!

I did a bit more work to Chewie yesterday and today, sadly I just had time to take a quick cell phone pic. But i was able to slim down the shape of his head and give a bit more definition to his face with some thin washes of glue and black paint.






And for fun, this was him about 1/2 through the furrying process :lol​

Thanks Ski, it's funny I recall giving you sculpting tips :lol Wish I'd kept up with it more, but hard to find time with a little one. But I'm trying to use the time I'd just be watching TV to do a bit of painting or sculpting.

:clap Nice to see everything all in one spot, GB! :clap Love it all. :D
Thanks Flosi :duff

Re: Galactiboy's Customs and Kitbashes of Terror!!! Deckard!!!

Thanks Fangs, he's a figure that you can pretty much adjust endlessly. And everytime you touch him you need to reposition the fur :lol Making this figure actually helps me understand why Sideshow might be reluctant to tackle Chewbacca.

Here's a Rick Deckard I worked on yesterday, I still have some futzing to do but I'm pretty happy with the result.

The outfit and gun are from the original "Android Hunter" figure. The head is from the Sidshow Indy and I (like others) choppped of his hair and resculpted new Deckardish hair and painted him up.









And for fun 2 WIP photos:
It's funny how much the Sideshow paint threw off the likeness... just a solid basecoat and Ford comes through so much more:​
