This month saw the release of ThreeZero's Tyrion Lannister, which is based on the image of Peter Dinklage in the HBO series Game of Thrones. When it comes to figures based on real people, it's usually a hit-or-miss deal. The ...

MaloApril shows off a pretty zombie and a rocker chick

MaloApril recently finished up two custom Dunnys as a commission and, as always, I find myself super jealous of anyone owning her pieces. The first is a zombie with fantastic eyes (I love the lashes) and decked out with a sku...

X-Plus' Battle-damaged Erza is aptly named

Just had a look at Akiba Hobby's photos of X-Plus' Erza Scarlet: Battle ver. and... yeah. As far as designs go, you can't go wrong with most of Erza's wardrobe; that isn't in question, here. It's the execution: hideous seam l...

Fuller working on a mean little Groot custom

Fuller showed off a work-in-progress image of a Mighty Mugg custom he's working on, destined to become Groot. So far, he's got some sculpting done for the head, and opted for a fierce expression for the little guy. I generall...
