The Hulkster and the NWO (yes...Nash and Hall) caused some major havoc at Wrestlmania 31 this past weekend and Skribbel24 has immortalized the this WWE/WCW icon with this Custom NWO Hollywood Hulk Hogan figure as he was seen in the Halloween Havoc pay per view as he fought against the Ultimate Warrior. Hulk Hogan does like to wear a nice boa so I am happy to see that it is included with the figure as it completes the look. Also, if you don't believe me that Hollywood Hogan, Hall, and Nash caused some trouble for Triple H and Degeneration X, here are the photos to prove it...I was there!
With Wrestlemania 31 right around the corner, the Sting vs. Triple H match might be the most highly anticipated match of the night. Skribbel24, wrestling figure aficionado and craftsman, created this Custom WWE Signed Sting Classic Superstars figure that is a dead ringer for the vigilante. The franchise of the WCW, Sting will step into the ring for the first time under WWE contract to face The Game and this figure captures Sting's transition in style and appearance as he sought to take down the NWO in 1996. Skribbel24 describes himself as "The reigning and defending World heavyweight champion in wrestling figure customs" and I have to agree with him. He is one of the best in the business and he is going strong. It looks like the owner of this custom is selling it his loss is your gain so get your Custom WWE Signed Sting Classic Superstars figure while you still can and own a one of kind custom by the best...and that's best for business!
One of the most talented Custom Wrestling figure makers I know is a guy that goes by the name Skribbel24. As I was looking at the figures he has up for sale this week, I could not pick a favorite so I decided to feature them all! I have been featuring Skribbel's work since 2008 and he keeps getting better and better as the years go by! One of the most notable figure this week is his Chris Benoit Custom Mattel Elite Wrestling figure. Given the tragic ending to his and his family's life back in 2007, no toy company will ever make a figure in his likeness but Skribbel24 has created an eery likeness that you can own. Skribbel24 attention to detail is great as he tries to replicate aspects of the figures to help bring them to life. For example, the detail in the facial expression and tights are the most noteworthy aspects of these figure.
He also has more amazing figures this week, which include:

When I think of wrestling customs, I think of Skribbel24 and his ability to create very accurate representations of the icons we grew up (or are growing up) with. With his latest Custom Hulk Hogan as he appeared at the 1989 Minnesota State Fair, this is his first ever head sculpt that he made from scratch. He did an excellent job sculpting the likeness of the Hulkster and he even gave the figure some personality with the expression that was sculpted on the face. I had the great opportunity to see Hulk Hogan in action at Wrestlemania 7 and I remember seeing that stare that Skribbel24 has created on his face as be battled Sgt. Slaughter! Not only did he create a figure, he also replicated the "I survived an atomic leg drop from Hulk Hogan" t-shirt.

Skribbel24 continues to pay homage to the classic wrestling stars of the 80's that I new and loved. Take his latest Custom WWF Classic Superstar Ricky the Dragon Steamboat figure. Skribbel24 has the unique ability to capture the wrestlers as they appeared so long ago. I only know Ricky Steamboat from his WWF days and he was a powerhouse and a force to be reckoned with. If you don't know the back history behind this legend, here is it from wwe.com:
After ending a long and bitter rivalry with George “The Animal” Steele, Randy Savage focused his attention on Ricky Steamboat. After some back and forth action, Savage got frustrated and lost control. He took the timekeeper’s bell, climbed the ropes and came crashing down on Steamboat’s throat, crushing his larynx. Horrified fans looked on as Steamboat was taken out on a stretcher. Steamboat miraculously returned a few weeks later, taking on Savage at WrestleMania III. With revenge on his mind, Steamboat defeated Savage for the Intercontinental Championship in what some consider one of the best match in WWE history.

I have to agree with Skribbel24 when he says that "Hulk Hogan is arguably the most famous WWE Superstar of all time." I was fortunate enough to attend Wrestlemania 7 as he battled Sgt. Slaughter at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. As a kid, I grew up watching this icon level anyone and everyone in his path and Skribbel24 has epitomized the Hulkster in a very different phase of his life with his Custom NWO Hollywood Hulk Hogan figure. What I love about Skribbel's customs is that he does not cut any corners and makes his customs come to life with his abilities. I have seen photos of the Hulkster in the NWO years and this custom does a great job of capturing that moment in his life. Specifically, he did a great job bringing to life his dyed black beard alongside his famous mustache. Also, with the addition of a removable shirt, this adds to the display of the figure.

Growing up in the 1980's, I had the opportunity to witness firsthand the introduction of Ravishing Rick Rude to the WWF and Skribbel24 has payed a very nice homage to this fallen warrior of the WWF. His Custom Ravashing Rick Rude figure brings back so many great memories of watching the WWF on Saturdays and waiting, in anticipation, for the weekly matches where Rick Rude was pitted against the unsuspecting generic wrestlers and also the famous feuds he was involved. Most notably, the feud with Jake the Snake Roberts took center stage but he was able to get under the skin of one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, The Ultimate Warrior. Wrestlemania V and Summer Slam 1989 were classic match ups where the Intercontinental Title was lost by the Ultimate then regained in the Summer Slam.
Some notable aspects of this figure include Rick Rude's famous flaming tights, where he had embroidered his face in the most private of areas. The head sculpt does an excellent job portraying Rude's likeness with short hair. If you are looking to add this awesome figure to your WWF collection, look no further and head over to eBay and bid on Skribbel24's Custom Ravashing Rick Rude figure.
This week, skribbel24 brings one of the most recognized and talented WWE wrestlers to life with his Custom WWE Macho Man Randy Savage figure. With his signature bandana and sunglasses, this figure really captures the essence of the Macho Man. One of my favorite aspects of skribbel24's customs is the versitilty he gives you with displaying the figure. He could have painted a shirt on this figure but he chose to create it with soft goods, which gives you the ability to remove the clothing and change up the way the figure looks in your collection. Another aspect I like about this custom is the attention to detail. If you look closely, you can see the words 'Madness' which definately characterizes Randy Savage's personality through the years of his wrestling career.

skribbel24 possesses the unique ability to capture the likeness of people. As a customizer, that is a very important trait. He has demonstrated this over and over again and this week he brings us his Custom WWE The Rock figure. Capturing human expression and emotion in a piece of plastic is very difficult to do (so difficult the major toy companies often have issues recreating the likeness of people accurately). For example, skribbel24 has captured the quirky facial expression of The Rock and has crafted the face so well that it is almost a dead on representation of him. The tattoos also add that extra touch and very well executed. This is a 2 in 1 figure, meaning that you can change the look from wrestler in the ring to the more casual 'Just Bring It' outfit. This is a great feature in this custom as you can change the look depending on your mood and it adds some versatility to your custom display. Overall, this is one of the best versions of The Rock I have seen to date.

Helping me ring in AFC's 200th blog, skribbel24 has created a blast from the past with his Custom Mr. America Hulk Hogan figure. I had several opportunities to see the Hulkster in action as my Dad would take me to see the WWF when they came to San Francisco and Oakland, California. I was lucky enough to go to Wrestlemania 7 where Hulk Hogan defeated a GI Joe icon Sgt. Slaughter via his patented leg drop to win the WWF Championship. skribbel24's custom Hulk Hogan bears an uncanny resemblence to the living and breathing wrestling icon and that is why people are in awe of his customs. topping it off with a custom box, he delivers the total package (not to be confused with Lex Luger...ok...not funny). Let's learn more about skribbel24's latest custom:
Hulk Hogan had a run as the mask-wearing spoof superhero Mr. America in 2003. The persona was supposed to be Hulk Hogan in disguise, wearing a mask. He used Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme music and used all of Hogan's signature gestures, moves, and phrases. He was the subject of a storyline that took place after Hollywood Hulk Hogan was forced by Vince McMahon to sit out the rest of his contract. After Hogan won at WrestleMania XIX, McMahon was kayfabe frustrated with him and wanted Hulkamania to die. A WWE pre-debut push took place with mysterious Mr. America promos airing for weeks during SmackDown!. There was also on-screen discussion on SmackDown! between then General Manager Stephanie McMahon and other players concerning her hiring Mr. America "sight unseen." On May 1, Mr. America debuted on SmackDown! on Piper's Pit segment. McMahon appeared and claimed that Mr. America was Hulk Hogan in disguise, and Mr. America shot back by saying, "I am not Hulk Hogan, brother!" (lampooning Hogan's use of "brother" in his promos). The feud continued through the month of May, with a singles match between Mr. America and Hogan's old rival Roddy Piper at Judgment Day. McMahon tried desperately to prove that Mr. America was indeed Hulk Hogan but failed at all attempts. Mr. America even passed a lie detector test. Mr. America's last WWE appearance was on the June 26 edition of SmackDown!.

Over the last week, I had the great opportunity to get to know a very talented Wrestling figure customizer who goes by the name skribbel24. His Custom Brock Lesnar is not only customized from head to toe, he also comes with custom Classic Superstars packaging, which makes a mean looking figure for display. The likeness to Brock is spot on and he even added some height to the figure. One of the coolest parts of the figure are his tattoos, especially the one on his back! I asked skribbel24 how he made this figure and he kindly shared his hard work and what went into this aweseome custom:
"Brock Lesnar is one of the most wanted characters for wrestling action figure collectors. I wanted to take this Brock to the next level by making it completely different from the previous Ruthless Aggression-style Brocks released in the past. Most note-worthy is the headscan, which looks more like Brock than the old scan they used, not to mention he looks meaner and hungrier. Next would be his torso. I used the ripped super heavyweight torso. Brock is a huge guy with massive shoulders, and this torso is perfect for him. I used the new boot mould for him to make him taller, since he is a lot bigger than most wrestlers. I also did away with the conventional knee pads and gave him custom ones. To put the final touches, I painted his famous back tattoo and logo on his tights. I was careful to be accurate with the details since this is a big part of Brock's look. I finished off "The Next Big Thing" by completing his shoulder tattoos and placing him in a custom Classic Superstars packaging."
