Ever wonder what happened after Darth Maul fell down the shaft after getting bisecting by Obi Wan? NTT has an theory on this with his latest Custom Marvel Legends Darth Maul figure. Building on the Star Wars Visionaries comic, NTT depicts Darth Maul as a much meatier cyborg than the I have seen in concept art but that is what I like about it. You can imagine Darth Sidious, in his haste, gathering the only parts he could find to quickly resurrect Darth Maul for more Sith missions. This Darth Maul looks like he can do some real damage with those legs. Although the gracefulness of the figure is somewhat overtaken by the large legs, Darth Maul still looks like he is a force to reckon with.
Having just watched 2001: A Space Odyssey and 2010: The Year We Made Contact, I was drawn to NTT figure because of it's cosmic nature and how well NTT translated the concept art into reality. His Custom Marvel Legends Icon Eternity figure is well put together and captures the comic version of the figure very well. I actually like this version much better as the pictures I have seen of the concept art drown out the face and in NTT translation, the face stands out much more, which makes it more interesting. This is a 12" figure and it looks like a piece of cosmic art so head over to eBay and check out more photos of NTT's Custom Marvel Legends Icon Eternity figure.
I love the realism that NTT brings to his customs and his latest Custom Marvel Legends White Phoenix figure is no exception. I love the concept from head to toe! The coupling of metallic gold and soft white accent the right parts of the this figure and the gold sash ties everything together. The hair is a work of art in itself and I have said this several times but nailing the right features of a figure (such as the eyes and hair) can make a break a custom. The hair is very realistic on this figure and the deep shade of red really makes the face pop! NTT is one of the best customizers in this respect and he strives to set a realistic tone with his figures while still staying true to the concepts.

Inspired from the Capcom game, Darkstalkers, NTT has made this unique rocker come to life with his Custom Lord Raptor figure. The flaming blue hair and the way the eyes are done are some of my favorite parts of this custom. He painted the eyes asymmetrically, which gives the figure that rocker attitude, like he is right in the middle of a killer solo. The smallest of details make a big difference to collectors and NTT added gold accents to the belt and it looks like he is using actual steal cable for the strings of the guitar.
"This figure stands 7.5 inches tall and features multiple points of articulation (including head, arms/wrists, torso and legs). Parts of this custom was sculpted with Aves apoxie (very durable) and completely hand painted in acrylics. Inspired by the Capcom video game Darkstalkers, this Lord Raptor figure comes complete with custom made toy electric guitar and a whole lotta attitude! This variant is an original design and was made as fan interest. He can be posed and handled without damage by an adult collector."

I love Halloween as it brings the most humorous and disgusting customs all year. This week, NTT has created a Zombie version of a classic comic character with his Custom Marvel Legends Punisher Zombie figure. The Marvel Zombies concept first appeared in Ultimate Fantastic Four#21-23 (2005) by writer Mark Millar and artist Greg Land. The premise is that almost all superpowered beings on Earth have become flesh-eating zombies after being infected by an alien virus (source:Wikipedia). What I love about this custom is the unadulterated gore on this figure as it looks like the flesh is literally peeling off of his face. To view more photos of this ghoulish custom, head over to eBay and check out NTT's Custom Marvel Legends Punisher Zombie figure.
NTT has done an excellent job bringing to the life the sultry X-MEN character with his Custom Marvel Legends Goblin Queen figure. I have always been a fan of NTT's sculpting ability and he has not let me down so far. Some unique aspects about this custom include the windblown look of the Goblin Queen, as her hair and cape appear to be blowing in the wind. The costume design is excellent and the facial structure of the figure is very lifelike. To view more pictures, head over to eBay and check out this Custom Marvel Legends Goblin Queen figure!
With briefcase and all, NTT has equipped Destro to work at his first desk job...yeah right! What this Custom Marvel Legends Destrois capable of I will leave that to your imagine but NTT has done an awesome job capturing the classic nature of this Cobra favorite. I love the over sized weaponry and vintage Destro'esque suit, he is ready to take on GI Joe. What I love about this figure is the attention to detail surroundigng the forarm weapons. I wish I could go to work sporting a pair of rockets and grenades on my arms. Here is a bit more detail from NTT himself about how this Destro was made:
"This figure stands 8 inches tall and features multiple points of articulation (including head, arms, elbows, wrists, torso, legs, andknees). Parts of this custom was sculpted with Aves apoxie (very durable) and completely hand painted in acrylics. Being a huge fan of the GI Joe series, decided to make a Destro figure in the Marvel Legends scale. He's been made with lots of attention to detail, for example the grenades and missiles on his forearm, his ruby opal necklace, and even added those studs around his neck. Included with this figure you get the bigazz machine gun, the briefcase, and a rapier sword."
NTT has a real treat in store for Batman fans with his Custom Joker in the look of Gary Oldman. This figure is very unique and I really like the creative thinking that made this figure come to light. If you remember characters that Gary Oldman has played (Sirius Black in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban movie), he played a very convincing crazy person, perfect for the role of the Joker. The hair on this figure really captures Gary's look and the detailing on the suit pay a nice homage to the Joker! Here is NTT with more information about this great figure:
"This figure stands 7 inches tall and features multiple points of articulation (including head, arms, wrists, and torso). Parts of this custom was sculpted with Aves apoxie (very durable) and completely hand painted in acrylics. Wanted to make a movie Joker with Gary Oldman's face instead of Heath Ledger's! Fans of Gary Oldman will no doubt remember his roles as psychopaths, and he would surely have done justice to the Joker character! At least it works in figure form! Included with this set is one of Joker's henchmen, Bob the Goon."

Calling all Incredible Hulk fans! NTT has created one of the best Red Hulks I have come across to date with his Custom Marvel Legends Red Hulk figure. The depth afnd design of this figure is what makes this one stand out! The veins appear to be bulging with rage and the shorts take on a very tattered look that have the appearance of soft goods. The blackwashing really brings out the detail in the muscles and I love the hair standing on end! This one is definitely going to give the Marvel Select Red Hulk a run for the money! Let's hear more about this great figure from NTT himself:
"This figure stands 9 inches tall and features multiple points of articulation (including head, arms, elbows, torso, legs and knees). Parts of this custom was sculpted with Aves apoxie (very durable) and completely hand painted in acrylics.

NTT gets back to classic roots with his Custom Classic Iron Man figure. Taking on the look as Iron Man appeared in the comics, NTT does an excellent job with this rendition.

For you fans of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, or more importantly, Jessica Rabbit, NTT has an excellent version of this beauty to share with you all. His Custom Jessica Rabbit Statue is a site to be seen (and owned). I am a big fan of customizers who can sculpt and this figure is beautifully done. NTT has really captured the essence and feeling of Jessica Rabbit and I will let him fill you in on the rest of the details:
"This figure stands 6.5 inches tall and features some points of articulation (including head and arms). Parts of this custom was sculpted with Aves apoxie (very durable) and completely hand painted in acrylics. Have always been a big fan of the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit and always wanted to see Jessica in an action figure form! There's been many beautiful statues made of her, even funny-looking bendies, but not a figure in the 6 inch scale yet. This one-of-a-kind figure has some articulation but is meant more for display."

NTT brings a classic X-Men character to life with his Custom Marvel Legends X-Men Polaris figure. Capturing the essence of the comic version of Polaris, this figure is very well scultped and the costume flows seamlessly into her body. The hair is my favorite part of this custom as she looks like she is taking flight and her hair is flowing in the breeze. The shades of green compliment the figure nicely and really bring out the features of the figure. Let's take a closer look at how NTT created this great figure:
"Remodeled the hair on the Circe to resemble the hairdo Polaris had on the cover of the Xmen comic. In fact, she was completely painted in the same green tone as she appeared on the cover. Man, she just looked galactic, totally absorbed in her magnetic aura and doing her mutant thing! It was this gravity-defying element in her pose that was interesting to behold, and wanted to convey in this custom. This meant sculpting her hair to appear as though it was floating, showing a sense of lightness. Basically started by flipping the hair around to the other side, then sculpted over the seams. Her face-guard was cut from blister package, then glued on. Nip/tucked her boobs and legs also with apoxie - and replaced the feet with ankles from a Spidey figure, (for the ankle articulation) - it complimented her "in-flight" pose. Also adjusted the cape just like the way it's flowing on the comic cover as a way to give tribute to Jim Steranko's style of drawing - very Kirbyesque. The illustration, in all its potent, monochromatic green color, and stylized design is classic comic art at its best - pure enjoyment. Wanted to capture the detail and likeness of this version of Polaris."

Polaris is a mutant with the ability to manipulate magnetism. Although she has the potential to exercise all of the powers that Magneto has, as yet she has only used powers involving the manipulation of magnetic, electrical, and gravitic fields. Moreover, she cannot summon as great an amount of energy as Magneto can. The exact limits on the amount weight that she can magnetically lift at present have not been measured, but they are considerably below those of Magneto. Since she has preferred not to use her powers in combat situations, she has not worked nearly as hard to develop them as Magneto has. As with Magneto, it is unknown whether Polaris's powers are purely psionic or whether they derive from her physically. Polaris has been observed levitating metallic objects and creating force fields in which she can suspend persons or objects in the air and in which she can protect them from attacks from outside the fields. She can also overload or short-circuit electrical systems. By concentrating, Polaris can perceive the world around herself solely as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy. She can perceive the natural magnetic auras surrounding living beings, as well. For a time, Polaris possessed superhuman strength and durability, as well as the ability to temporarily increase her height and mass by drawing on negative energy around her.
