When you and I hear that there’s going to be a Star Wars Black 6″ exclusive Boba Fett as this year’s San Diego Comic Con, we think, “Damn. I’ll never own that.” But when Joe Amaro hears it, he thinks, “I’m going to sculpt a gigantic 6″ scale Jabba the Hutt!” And that’s what he [...]
I knew someone had to have made a custom of a vintage Castle Grayskullman (aside from the creator of CGM himself), and a cursory search brought up this one by Hunter Knight Customs. I think CGM is the 30th Anniversary figure that most seems like it would have existed in the 1980s – yes, even more [...]
A new TMNT toy line, a new slew of Slash customs. Slash, the evil Turtle, remains one of the franchise’s most popular designs (despite never having gotten another toy after the original), so it didn’t take long to start seeing customs of him from the new toys.

Poester Finkrod put up pics of his custom 200X-style Trap Jaw in the Poester Gallery a few weeks back, and I thought it was so damned cool it was worth posting here. Check out Finkrod’s post in the Poester Gallery for more info on how he made it.
Waaaaaay back in early February I teased you with this photo, which then went long unexplained. Well, the time has come to reveal just what that was! Meet Poe the Minimate! Forged in the fires of Minimatefactory.com, this incredibly handsome action figure is the work of toysmith Luke Porter. Here’s what Luke had to say [...]
