Grundy's WIP customs

Posted in Custom Workstation

Here are my thundercats custom I've been working on. They are not finished I think Lion-o needs some teeth, some paint touch-ups, and of course his sword of omens needs paint. Panthera has just been sculpted and needs some nunchucks. Would love to hear you guys comments and suggestions on theses. The base figure for lion-o was a Batman I had lying around. Panthera was some DC cyborg I didn't regonize, he required a lot of sculpty. I would like to get some ML figures but as I'm just starting out with customizing I thought I'd practice with what I had.

Yeah Grundy, your sculpting is top notch buddy! Keep it up! Also sculpy will take testors paint A-OK so no sweat there buddy. Oh and Daffy Rules! the God of Frustration!

Thanks, I've been practicing my sculpting a lot but it's getting frustrating not being able to complete a custom.

Here's another WIP for you guys. This time it is roger from American Dad as requested by a co-worker. He stands about 3 1/4 inches tall. There is no base figure here he is pure sculpey. I have no updates on any of my other customs, reason being I have very little paint. Found a few bottles of testors acrylic at the local walmart but that's it. I may need to order some paints online, anyway here's roger let me know what you think. Criticism is welcome, let me know what I can do to improve my sculpting.

I was baking the sculpty on my latest creation, Mum-ra, and when it was done he looked like a dwarf. The plastic had shrunk. The head survived though because it was entirely encased in sculpty. I think this is going to turn out to be a happy mistake though because it has given me the idea of putting this severed head in the left hand of my lion-o custom, and calling it the death of Mum-ra. I had never had a problem with figures shrinking like this before but this figure came from the dollar store and I'm sure it was made from a cheaper plastic.

Daffy Duck articulation is easy - just use Wire to make him bendy and coat the wire in bendy sculpy - that lets you make shapes like his wings but still gives you pretty good flexibility

or use a 3.75 gi joe knock off limbs - as they are very slender and fit the fig perfectly



and for the record I love that ep of Duck Dodgers - I wish they made a Green Lantern animated show

articulation is always a good thing in a way, but at 3 inches, would it be worth it? too much articulation can ruin the fig...?

Ever since I first saw this episode of Duck Dodgers I've wanted to make a figure of him, so when I saw this Daffy Duck figure at a flea market I knew it was time to make him. My question is to you guys is do you think I should try to add some articulation to him or leave him static. He is 3 inches tall. The episode is on youtube it is called the green loontern.
