It's been 3 years since my last custom figure. I had run out of ideas and inspiration and so I've lain dormant in the action figure custom world since 2009...until I saw Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch! Despite the bad reviews from critics, I absolutely LOVED this movie on several different levels. Visuals, Symbolism, Story etc....and I haven't been this inspired to do a custom figure since the first time I saw the Lord of the Rings! I know Hot Toys has the license for this line, but I really can't wait for them and I needed to channel this new obsession somewhere....
