Total Rejects…it came down to only TWO entries this time around. Perhaps it was too ironic for our talented customers to work on a project destined to fail, lol. Please take a look and enjoy!

[CUSTOMS] Gambit by Ska Lives

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

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!!

[CUSTOMS] Dravenheart’s Royal Flush Gang

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!
