Munn-day Morning Recap is back for yet another week, ready to show off the cool Munnys and Dunnys you may or may not have seen in the past few weeks. As always, these are customs that weren't highlighted in individual posts on Tomopop, but were still worth bringing to your attention. And if it's not morning where you are ... change your clocks, because I'm too lazy to change the title of this feature for you.
This week's batch of customs goes back to Munnyworld, specifically to take a look at some of the customs that caught my eye. It's a mix of some familiar names along with a few new artists. Everything comes to us via the Munnyworld website this week as well; be sure to check out all the entries and vote on your favorites. And honestly, I'd say give each of these a little bit of love when you vote, but you don't have to listen to me.
But hey, you want to see the customs, don't you? Hit the jump to check them all out!
Let's start with the custom from the header. Of course, now the subtitle for this week makes sense, and if it doesn't ... shame, shame, shame on you! Go do a barrel roll as repentance. In any case, nikejerk has once again used video games as his customizing muse, this time pulling together Fox in one of his more modern looks. The headset is one of my favorite parts of this custom Trikky, which is one of my favorite nikejerk customs so far. Care to do a Captain Falcon next, Jared?
Minecraft Bub by 8Bit
Yet that's not the only video game-themed custom in the mix. Calgary's 8Bit took a Bub and using paper, it seems, has recreated the pixelated look of Minecraft. I like the steel pickaxe accessory!
From Roeland Park, Kansas, comes this cool piece from csbeltram. His inspiration was to see if he "could create a suspension of action" on such a static figure. Between the explosion in the middle of the Munny's head and the parts flying in every direction, I think he's succeeded.
Capt'n Snips by Kasey Tararuj
All the way from New Jersey comes this custom Bub by Kasey Tararuj. ... Wait, what? You don't see the Bub? Look close: you can see the outline, but Kasey's done a great job of building around this custom and turning it into something fantastic!
From the desert lands of California comes [ prisma ] with an awesome custom Munny inspired by Converse's classic Chuck Taylors! Not only has [ prisma ] gone the extra mile by making a custom shoebox to go with the Munny, but that's an actual shoelace threaded through the Munny itself.
Drummy by Gary Ham
But maybe you'd like the comfort of a familiar name? Gary Ham's put together a custom for the contest, too, of a little fellow called Drummy. Inspired by drumlines and the like, Drummy comes in a little band outfit, complete with his own shako, drum and drumsticks. I love the little toothy grin on his face and the little musical notes on either side of his face.
Foomi Battle Bot by Howie Green
Boston-based artist Howie Green's Foomi Battle Bot caught my eye in part because it reminded me of the kind of plastic toys I remember seeing growing up. You know, the best ones: the ones that you could find on the cheap at K-Mart and the like but were awesome. Man, I miss those kind of toys ...
If you have no idea where this is from ... GET OUT. Seriously, though, how can you not love both the creativity of turning a Munny into Gizmo Duck and the level of detail cipher's put into this? My only concern is that wheel on the bottom ... just how does this custom stay balanced?
Graffy by shez
Taking urban vinyl back to its roots in a way, shez has put together a concrete-patterned Raffy with various graffiti on it. The worn look is patterned very well on the concrete parts of it, and the "No Graffiti" sign on the front of the Raffy is a cute little touch.
Green Life by Mijal Montagner
From Venezuela, we have this delightful little piece from Mijal Montagner that utilizes both a regular Raffy and some of the smaller Munnyworld Raffy charms. I like the birdhouse theme to it, complete with the nest and the little eggs in it. Huh, didn't know Raffys were hatched from eggs ...
Little Tiger by Paulette Arochena
When I saw this custom, I couldn't help but like it. I mean, not only is the face a cute tiger, but Paulette's put little tigers all over this Trikky! See how many you can find. Winner gets a cookie!
Taking inspiration from Warhammer 40K's Plague Marines, British artist Blue Swirl has turned this basiuc Munny into a rather creepy looking creation. The copper face mask elements are a nice touch that make it look that much more creepy. *shiver*
Security Camera Bub by Charles Mooney
Not everyone entering the contest is purely an artist, though. Take, for example, Charles Mooney, an Illinois graduate student in the field of computer science. He's taken the usual Bub and given him a nice rusty robot look, but look closer. See the camera in its head and the sensor in its belly? They actually work.
Spawn by Fuller
Fuller's back up to his usual tricks, creating another awesome comic book custom. This one's none other than the one and only Spawn, complete with his flowing cape. As you can see, there's a little bit of sculpting on the face as well, but a lot of the detailing is from the paint job alone. Looks killer!
Trip to Heaven by Abell Octovan
Finally, we finish this edition off with a cool Munny all the way from Indonesia. It's just so adorable to look at, and there's obviously been some sculptwork put into this as well, because Munnys aren't posed like this normally!
