What Toys Are Up To: Combat-San's glorious rebirth

6:00 PM on 06.22.2011 // Colette Bennett

One of the most wonderful things about keeping up with the world of toy customs is that it never fails to amaze or inspire. Tale for instance, Japanese customizer Tomogomafu (site requires registration), who transformed Kotobukiya's Combat-san kit into a beautiful new colorway thanks to some green, brown, and white paint. The photos are stunning, and I encourage you to check them all out in our gallery.

Any toy collector also knows that sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own hands when it comes to finding collectibles of your favorite secondary characters in a game, anime, or film. For instance, Resident Evil 5's frightful executioner, who has been recreated to perfection by modeler Yasha, including his tremendous axe.

Hit up the gallery for even more customs and original creations. There's a gorgeous repaint of the HMO Miku Nendoroid from customizer Ruuka89 (Thanks for the tip, Tea&Cookies!), some hilarious selections from the Hobby Search blog, and much more. Remember, you can send your own submissions of your toys in action to us at colette@tomopop.com. We promise to feature them!
