custom customs

Over the past few months Ive been in a creative slump. Nothing has really motivated me to work on a custom piece, and Ive only cranked out a few since I moved to Virginia last summer. Its kind of sucked really. That being said I believe the dust has beeen knocked off because I really felt motivated to do this custom!

Any how, I had the epiphany to use the ROC Rex torso to make a Gambit custom; Gambit being one of my FAVORITE X-Men characters ever. After this I found that I had a Gambit head in my fodder, and then it was just a matter of finding suitably armored legs to really hammer it home. The rest of the work came from some light green stuff sculpting on the lower legs to hide the factory pants sculpting, and using that same green stuff to make his trade mark cards and smokes. The energy effects were done with hot glue.

I hope you dig it!

Recipe:

Head – AVACS Lab Cast
Torso – ROC Rex
Arms – ” ”
Hands – ” ”
Upper Legs – ” ”
Lower Legs – 50th Rock Viper
Feet – DG Snake Eyes

Accessories:
Coat – ROC Rex
Staff – Random Fodder
Cards and cigarette – Green stuff
Energy effect – Hot glue w/ green stuff card inside

Looks like we are going to see some new Joes and Cobras at JoeCon this year!

Just announced on Hasbro’s Pulse;

Fans Challenged With Hintless Crossword Puzzle

Hasbro is gearing up for the 2016 G.I. Joe series, and Hasbro Pulse is excited to host an intriguing peek at the first brand-endorsed look at the entire line. 2016 will kick off with an exclusive set (available at San Diego Comic Con) and then a series available exclusively at Toys R Us and Entertainment Earth. The eighteen figures slated for 2016 are all arranged in the crossword puzzle below, including the Kindle Worlds Fan Choice figure Stiletto – the only character previously announced in this year’s lineup. The rest of the puzzle is up to the fans to fill in, and NONE of the names have been given any clues or hints.

We realize that offering up a crossword puzzle with zero name hints is pretty rough, but we’re certain that even obscure hints would get sniffed out quickly by our diehard Joe collectors. Instead, fans have a chance to collaborate and discuss before the correct puzzle is revealed this year at the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention in Loveland, Colorado. Come to the Hasbro Brand Panel on Saturday, June 18th to see the puzzle revealed and also get your first peek at the G.I. Joe prototype figures for 2016!

custom customs spotlight

It seems that often times as a customizer, that my roots are often times forgotten in lieu of a fancy new gimmick or some such. However, for a few of our OGer brothers this is not the case! For a select few, the torch that started the customizing fire still burns brightly! For these individuals O-ring customs are not dead, they are alive and well…and totally exclusive!

With that I would like to request that you take a look a the work being done by the likes of Rambo and Jogunwarrior, and look at what the past still brings to the future!
