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 desk of Mayhem Customs’ Viper6:

“Frank has always been a favorite, anyone who knows me knows I LOVE The Punisher, and that WAR ZONE was probably my favorite comic series being that I like him grim and gritty… anyway, when I heard a 1/6th scale figure was inbound … I set myself to task with my first ever 1/6th scale custom, hope you enjoy this one even half as much as I do, I had a blast pulling him together (would you believe that head was storm shadow unmasked?)”

From the workbench of Dravenheart

“Never really been too much of a fan of Domino, but she is pretty popular. Got a request recently, so she finally made it to my project list. It was inevitable that I would end up making this X-Force member, really.”

Marvel Studios has found its Dr. Strange

According to Deadline Hollywood,

Marvel has finally found its Doctor Strange. I’m hearing Benedict Cumberbatch is the studio’s choice for the superhero pic, and negotiations are about to begin. The news comes after talks with Joaquin Phoenix around the time of Comic-Con went south, and Marvel went back to the drawing board. With names like Jared Leto and Tom Hardy also in the mix, this is obviously a coveted role. I expect this deal to make.
Cumberbatch is in the Oscar hunt this year for The Imitation Game, the Alan Turing biopic that the Weinstein Co is priming for a November 21 release. His hot streak has included winning the Emmy for playing Sherlock Holmes on the BBC/PBS hit Sherlock.

Phoenix never had a deal, and Marvel quickly got into it with other actors to play Doctor Strange in a free-standing film.

frontpage toy news

Thanks to OG13 member Ooyah for the heads up! Larry Hama will be attending the Action Figure Expo next weekend in Toronto.

2014 Guest Information

larry-hamaLARRY HAMA
Larry Hama is best known to fans as writer of the Marvel Comics licensed series G.I. Joe, based on the Hasbro line of military action figures. Hama said in a 2006 interview that he was given the job by then editor-in-chief Jim Shooter after every other writer at Marvel had turned it down. Hama at the time had recently pitched a Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off series, Fury Force, about a special mission force. Hama used this concept as the back-story for G.I. Joe. He included military terms and strategies, Eastern philosophy, martial arts and historical references from his own background. The comic ran 155 issues (February 1982-October 1994).

Hama also wrote the majority of the G.I. Joe action figures’ file cards—short biographical sketches designed to be clipped from the G.I. Joe and Cobra cardboard packaging.[9] In 2007 these filecards were reprinted in the retro packaging for the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero 25th Anniversary line.

At the 11th Annual Action Figure Expo Mr. Hama will be signing and meeting with the attendees as day long.

From the desk of icecreamman:

“This is my second take on Marvel comics’ Spirit of Vengeance. I used a 25th Crimson Guard as base figure for my first version of Ghost Rider. I just wanted to give my Ghost Rider a more “biker”/leather-clad look than a black Crimson Guard-ish look. I initially wanted to use a Retaliation Firefly, the one with the collar. But the collar seems kind of big for Ghost Rider. I thought ROC Thuderblast’s torso with a smaller collar would look better. Hope you like it! “
