Searching for a customizer in Custom Workstation by 2manydvds   
Thursday, May 3, 2018
   [Edit]
Hi. I am very unsavvy when it comes to the world of customs, so I need some help. I need to find someone who takes commissions who is in the same league as LooseCollector. I have been having a series of figures,from the same superhero team, made by him. He is now making my sixth figure. But he has just announced that he will no longer be accepting commissions, so I am stuck in limbo. I can't have half my team looking as incredible as he makes them and then entrust the rest of them to just anyone. Can you recommend someone who is up to his standards who would accept an ongoing series of commissions? Thanks a lot!...[See More]

I haven't found ANYBODY. I've had a couple people show interest but when it came time they just ignored me. I REALLY need somebody.

OK, so let me put it this way since I can't get any suggestions this way. Who are the BEST customizers currently posting to Figure Realm? I'll check them out and test the waters myself.

You can browse the Showcase and message whoever's work you like.

Thanks for the info, I think it's encouraging for new customizers to know that.
VHT paint sticky on figure in Custom Workstation by Thunderstrike14   
Thursday, October 18, 2018
   [Edit]
Some people on here suggested that I should use VHT flat white when painting a figure flat white to prevent the paint from showing brush Strokes but when I tried it on my Dc Universe Manhunter some of the parts came out sticky or tacky so I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong....[See More]

Fodder for 1/18 figures in Custom Workstation by TheRubicon   
Wednesday, October 10, 2018
   [Edit]
Hello People of the Realm!
So, after seeing all the amazing work being done on 1/18 blanks and MU figs, I decided to look into the scale a little deeper and discovered that I can actually afford this hobby if I work at that scale! what a concept! that said, I got some incredible advice from Dravenheart and great direction to a couple resources, such as Boss Fight Studios, Marauders Inc, Raging Spoon, and Avacs. I'm looking for more resources that you all have personal experience with. Specifically, i'm looking for armor bits, hair pieces, random MU fodder parts, vehicles, mechs, and playset/diorama pieces. load me with links, folks!

thanks as always!

I'm guessing this is kinda the same stuff that was being advertised as a miracle super adhesive a couple of years ago. I was thinking then that it might be useful for customizing in some manner.

hey there!
I know it was about fodder parts in general,but if you want a good adress for cheap bases at that scale you can may check this here too: http://gonativetoys.com/store_figure.html
I got some of them,but I'm still a little scared of sculpting such tiny stuff^^ what I can say is that these figs are pretty cool and really 'superarticulated'.each one comes with three pairs of hands and two heads,so a little fodder is included but unfortunately they also need some paintrub-prevention on the joints.best greetings and wishes again!

Danke, she's very flattered that strangers on this board and from around the world are keeping her in their thoughts. as for the translation; I'm proud to say that I got the idea, but I did have to look it up to fill in the blanks.

Also, If anyone has any tips on a sealant or technique that makes the figure durable enough for light play, please toss that in here too! Thanks all!

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
like I said,it's really a little difficult to apply it thin and smooth,but it's strong as hell and could also be smoothed out and polished after curing...I'd really like to do more experiments with this cause it's waaaayyy more durable than every other sealing I tried for now.may perfect for customs that aren't only made to stand on a shelf...

Looking for Exosquad in Trading Post by TheRubicon   
Updated Saturday, October 13, 2018
   [Edit]
Hey Realmers,
I'm trying to fulfill a childhood void and want to collect Exosquad toys. I'm looking for pilot figures, e-frames, and jump troops. I'm not looking for in-the-box/sealed condition. Incomplete is fine as long as it's not too broken, etc. please send pictures of what you've got. I don't have much to trade, but i'm willing to pay money via paypal. please again note that i'm not interested in "new in the box" condition. i'm collecting these for my pleasure and some custom work.

Thanks a bunch!

Also! G.I. Joe Mechs as well or similar stuff I can kit bash with!

****Update: Also looking for discarded bits of sci-fi models and dios. Whatever can be stuffed in a box and mailed that I could use to add texture and complexity. Thanks...[See More]
Delete a custom or get in contact with site moderators in Figure Realm Comments and Questions by Deaditor   
Thursday, November 17, 2016
   [Edit]
Hi I was wondering if I could delete a custome on here as there seems to be no option. I had a custom removed because it wasn't a finished custom but I've posted unfinished stuff in the past and updated later but I think this option of removing it would suit my position at the moment. I want a custom removed as I am so close to finishing it I might as well post it as itself or as version 2 or something which I would rather avoid. Ideally I would like this custom to be not jsut a second version or an unpdate because no one will see it and quite frankly this one has been massively changed in my own view. Any help would be great thanks realm!...[See More]

Removing Testors Acrylic from figures. in Custom Workstation by RadicalJesterXL   
Thursday, October 4, 2018
   [Edit]
Hello all, I've looked through the tutorials ( I'm new at this ) and haven't found anything on what to do when you mess up. I've been doing eyes on a figure and I'm a perfectionist and I haven't been fully happy with the applications. I was using acetone to remove and start over but on the 3rd time it actually seemed to eat away at the plastic and left craters on the face. Is there anything to use that will remove the Acrylic paints, but not compromise the integrity of the figure? Thanks in advance....[See More]

Yes, thank you guys. I ended up using the alcohol inks blending solution. Works like a charm.

what Dave said. also, if it's something that can be thinned with water, try a soft toothbrush (dollar-store type) and warm soapy water. And then you can use alcohol to remove any residue.
ROM - what kind of paint job should he get? in Custom Workstation by riseROBOTrise   
Wednesday, December 16, 2015
   [Edit]
Hey everyone,
I've been working on this ROM SPACEKNIGHT figure for a while now, and I'm just about to put the paint on it. I've seen a few inspirational paint schemes on other ROM figures, and on some general pop art figures that I am considering. I tried him out first with a basic silver coat. Wasn't very impressed with the finish it gave me. This was using Tamaya. Testors is my favorite for looks, but it's always tacky regardless of how long I leave it to dry. I've seen some customizers use something called 'powdered chrome', but I've not been able to track down exactly which product they've used to get the remarkable finish they achieve.

So, yep, my first thought on his finish was silver - ...[See More]
