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!

From the workbench of Miles Mayhem

Here comes the big surprise project of 2016!!!! Very proud to reveal my Sky Falcon VTOL. Based off of a Cobra Hurricane, I hacked off the weird spoiler & replaced the boosters with shaved Swampmasher wheels. I feel these two small tweaks set it apart instantly. This one also sports a custom chrome finish done by Concepts In Chrome, and paint done by myself. Stickers are from Toyhax & are from various kits. I always liked the Hurricane, but felt the colors were odd and it needed to be Sky Patrolled!!

From the desk of Dravenheart:

If Spawn was the single most difficult figure I’ve ever made, this is definitely the most agonizing set I’ve ever fixed up. So much trial and error. And white. Didn’t help that these guys have looked different in just about every appearance they’ve ever had. So, it took some discussing to work out exactly which designs were desired in the request. And then we had bonus stuff.

For Jack, Queen and King, the arms and torsos were all sculpted. Added hair and the crown to the King head, and just the crown to Jack. Added some sculpt to an alternate Ace head to give him the battle damaged look to show part of the cybernetic head underneath. Added some sculpt to King’s belt to give it a smoother look, and then sculpted the crown onto Queen’s hair. From there, everything was just parts swaps and then some really tedious repainting. And then the cards. Card stands were requested, so I custom made Ace’s out of those washable tattoo sleeves. Glued two together to make them sturdier. For the other cards I glued them three thick. Added a magnet in each figure’s foot, and then a metal piece to each card. After all that, I cut out some throwing cards for Jack, throwing spades for 10, modified a Cable gun for 10, modified the Halo grenade for Queen, and gave King a sword. Whew. And…done!
