Fresh off the shelves and into Billmeister's talented hands come his rendition of the Fall of Cybertron Grimlock figure. Taking the spirit of the FOC game into account, he tried to make the figure as accurate as possible. Being a sword and shield brawler in the game, the figure captures this feeling with the additions of a highly detailed flaming orange blade and shield. The colors on the blade and shield almost look like embers glowing from a crackling fire, a feature that blends in with the rest of the figures motif. The overall image of the figure looks like Grimlock has been to hell and back, with detailed weathering, scoring, and metallic coloring. This figure looks even more impressive in robot mode so to view more photos of Billmeister's Custom Transformers Fall of Cybertron figure, head over to eBay! One last thing...when you look at the photos, check out the killer Autobot symbol on his chest as it is a twist on this iconic symbol from 1980's.
Mirko is a painter, sculpter and model film-faithful re-creator who specializes in creating film-inspired pieces. This week, Mirko has taken a very cool vehicle from the Star Wars universe and made it a thousand times better with his Custom MTT Droid Carrier and STAP. The Trade Federation Multi Troop Transport is actually a very cool vehicle but one of the aspects that is usually missing from off the shelf toys is that weathered and battle damaged look, which Mirko has added to this great vehicle. Taking a page out of the Sculpting the Galaxy book, Mirko has applied his skill and made a killer looking MTT that is sure to enhance your Star Wars collection. Not only did he do an amazing job weathering the scoring the outside of the vehicle but as much attention to detail has been paid to the inside of the vehicle. To see what I am talking about, head over to eBay and check out Mirko's Custom MTT Droid Carrier and STAP.
In classic X-Force style comes Jin Saotome's Custom Marvel Legends Havok figure. In styling circa 1990's, Jin has brought out the comic likeness with removable shockwave blasts accessories, which adds to figures display and character. The blasts that have the swirling debris is a very cool effect! Along with adding some one of a kind additions to the figure, the sculpting the paint app is flawless. I would expect nothing less from Jin as he is one of the best customers in the biz. To view more photos of Jin's Custom Marvel Legends Havok figure, head over to eBay!
Grant it, I am a sucker for ginormous Transformers and Colosal Customs' Fortress Maximus fit the bill! Standing at a towering 2 feet tall, this figure is definitely worthy of the Fortress Maximus title. Colosal Customs makes some amazing figures and he has outdone himself with this one. The figure is painted to the nines and resembles comic art for the Transformers artist Dan Khanna. This figure is fully transformable with some great additions, including plethora of articulation and joints to make this figure more poseable. Looking just as good in fortress mode, Colosal's Custom Transformers Fortress Maximus figure is definitely one to add to the collection!
