Custom Made Monday: Home of the Evil

Jul 01 // Brian Szabelski
Geese Howard custom 12-inch figure from by ZombieKev So we start things off with the usual spotlight figures, and if you're a King of Fighters fan, then this one we found on FigureRealm might just blow your mind. It's a 12-inch custom figure of the boss himself, Geese Howard, complete in his gi and hakama, with an evil smirk sculpted on his face. For the body, Kev used a DC Direct Deluxe 13-inch body, and a head from a Medicom figure with new sculptwork to make it look like Geese. Add in handsewn clothing and hands recast from various figures, and it's super-impressive. Custom Shredder concept by customfig Speaking of awesome finds on FigureRealm, how about this interesting take on Shredder? Using a wrestling figure for a base with a ton of unique sculpting (the cape is from another figure and that's all that's not sculpted), customfig has created an imposing Shredder, who comes with a sword and a throne base to sit upon. Maybe it's not the most canon-friendly figure, but it's hard to deny that this doesn't look impressive.  Iron Man and Iron Patriot Minicels by Fuller Designs Fuller has put his stylings to two of Kuso Vinyl's Minicel figures, turning them to Iron Man and Iron Patriot from Iron Man 3. The designs don't have much in the way of sculpting, but Fuller tends to layer details on with his painting skill, and they show off here. Plenty of shading to go with some of the wear and tear. These will be available in the Kuso Vinyl booth (#5642) at SDCC. Sergeant Bearbosa by Reet Neet Reet is back with another 3.5-inch Teddy Trooper custom, done in the same style as his previous General Bearends custom. I do like how the body this time around has a wooden finish to it instead of riveted copper, along with the gears protruding through the torn-open helmet. Like General Bearends, this is a commissioned piece, but Reet Neet is open for commissions, if you're interested. Fhtagndroids and custom Trikky by Infinite Rabbits Some new customs from Infinite Rabbits have appeared. First, there's the custom 7-inch Trikky, made for a trade with another artist. Nothing much seems out of the ordinary with it ... you know, except the dozens of eyes sculpted and painted onto the surface of the Trikky's face.  And speaking of eyeballs, Infinite Rabbits put together a trio of custom Androids he's called the Fhtagndroids, a little bit of Cthulhu-inspired vinyl madness. Sadly, all three variants have sold, but I'm sure he's got more creations in store; we'll let you know about any others that pop up in his shop! Jabba the Beett by Nathan Hamill The Deadbeet Custom Show is currently ongoing at Toy Art Gallery, and here's Nathan Hamill's piece for the show. Yes, it's a Jabba the Hutt inspired Deadbeet figure, and it works incredibly well. I love the sculptwork on the face to make it look just like Jabba, completely down to the eyes. Even Jabba's hookah is here as an accessory. I just hope Nathan's dad didn't accidentally blow up the stand it was sitting on ... Bjorn the Big Battle Star Astronaut and Johnny Tattoo by Bash Projects Two new customs to share with you from Bash Projects. First, there's Bjorn the Big Battle Star Astronaut, a secret weapon the Battle Star Astronauts who makes all hell break loose when he arrives on the scene. The Dunny is available for €230 in Bash's shop. The second is a commissioned Fatcap called Johnny Tattoo, a poor fellow who fell asleep in Bash's tattoo chair when he went for some ink. Bash doesn't appreciate that, so he gave him more than he bargained for ... and apparently took his clothes, too. Simon Belmont by KirkyMonster The third custom in this week's feature from FigureRealm, KirkyMonster has put together a spin on Simon Belmont, making him look more like his appearance in Ayami Kojima's original artwork. The body is a NECA Simon Belmont figure, the head a Resaurus Street Fighter Remy head, and the paintwork done in a brown and red style. Keeper of the Beach and Morrow Treehouse by Taylored Curiosities The latest from Taylored Curiosities are two customs featuring her Morrow creations. One is a Dudebox figure she's turned into a Morrow Treehouse, which was in the Dudebox shop but has sold. The feathers and fleecy floor kind of give it a nest-like feel. The other is Keeper of the Beach, a 4-inch Munny that serves as a swimming pool for a little Morrow fellow. This one has sculpting, painting, stitching, and needle-felting done into it, and it's based on memories of growing up in a seaside town. If you like it, it's £80 in the Taylored Curiosities shop. MF Doom Munnys and custom Hello Kitty toys by Kokeshi Clan Kokeshi Clan has put together some customs he wanted to show off. First, he's done a series of custom Munnys of MF Doom, complete with his trademark mask. It's a set of five, each in a different colorway with mics as accessories. He's also done a series of Hello Kitty customs, turning them into little ninjas. If you want either, they're in his shop. The MF Doom Munnys are US$65 and the Hello Kitty customs are US$45. Fly Girls by Jenn and Tony Bot and melodreama  Ending this week's round-up are a series of collaborative Dunnys from The Bots and melodreama. Inspired by World War II's female pilots, these five blind-boxed Dunnys are sculpted by The Bots and painted by melodreama, and each has a unique design all its own. You can pick one up for US$80 in The Bots' shop. [That wraps up this week's installment of Custom Made Monday! If you have any customs you'd like to see featured, or just spot something that's eye-catching and fits the feature, be sure to e-mail us and let us know!]
