I just finished watching Seasons 1 and 2 of the Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles. Excellent series that was cut way too short by a cancellation but Ashkanls has something that any Terminator fan would love with his Custom Terminator T800 vs Robocop Maquette. What would exactly happen if a T800 met up with Robocop? From Ashkan's portrayal, it looks like the T800 had its way with Robocop. Ashkanls is a very talented metal worker and it just goes to show you that you don't have to a large company to produce the quality of a custom. I love the lights and the craftsmanship:
Frenzy.Rumble, who is best known for his Custom Transformers, has given the Avatar movie some attention with his Custom AMP Mech Suit with Colonel Miles Quaritch. I had the opportunity to see the movie in IMAX 3D and I must say it was well worth it. I am usually not into 3D movies but the effects were very well done (and not overdone). One of the vehicles in the movie allowed the soldiers to venture out on the planet Pandora to do some major damage. Let's read more about how Frenzy.Rumble was inspired to do this vehicle:
"What an amazing film! On my way home from seeing this awesome movie, I decided to make a quick stop at a toy store and pick up some of the movie's toys. I started the customization process by fixing some of the weaker articulation. I proceeded to add some battle damage, and created/added a strap for the gun. I used a durable special chrome lacquer paint for the AMP's joints and gun parts."

jef_nkf pays a great homage to the now Governator of California with his Custom Terminator T800 figure. Since Terminator Salvation came out, I have been watching the older Terminator movies and I must say that jef_nkf does an excellent job of capturing the look and feel of the machine. I love the fine detailing in the face and it looks like he pay extra attention to the aspects that make this figure great. For example, the bullet holes in the sweater add to the realism and the blood stains around them give the illusion that the figure is bleeding through the holes. The boots and pants are custom made and he even added a custom shotgun. To see more photos of this great figure, head over to eBay and check out jef_nkf's Custom Terminator T800 figure.
ContradictionWear Customz has outdone himself with his latest District 9 Scratch Built Prawn Bust. This bust is highly detailed and is very well executed. The facial features are well in proportion and the way the bust was sculpted, the figure has much depth. It is very hard to get eyes right but this is not issue for ContradictionWear as the way the eyes are shaded, the figure looks very life like and realistic. He has posted a video that does more just than the photo above so please check it out:embedded by Embedded Video

I just saw District 9 last night and first of all, it was an amazing movie with a great story that was fast paced. Hot on the heels of his last Mech, Jiveking7 has created another Custom Disctrict 9Prawn Mech figure that stands a towering 9" tall. For being a scratch built figure, this Mech is very well done and looks like the alien machine from the movie. The Mech was an interesting twist to the movie but you will have to see District 9 to find out more. To own a piece of the movie, head over to eBay and check out Jiveking's Custom Disctrict 9Prawn Mech figure.
I have not seen the District 9 movie yet but I can't wait to see it. Jiveking7 has created this Custom Alien Mech Figure in honor of the movie. This one is scratch built and fully poseable so head over to eBay and check out more photos of this great movie custom.
"One two, Freddy's coming for you..." NTT has captured one of the silver screen's most horrific icons with his Custom Marvel Legends Freddy Krueger figure. I remember watching a Nightmare on Elm Street and being thoroughly scared. This figure has so much gorey detail and effects and truly looks like the murderous villain with the blades for fingers. My favorite part of this custom is revealed under the classic green and red shirt:
This was the coolest effect when I saw this in the movies. This figure is sculpted with care and is one of the best movie customs I have seen thus far. To bid on this great figure, head over to eBay and check out Custom Marvel Legends Freddy Krueger figure.
"Being the adventures of aTT young man ... who couldn't resist pretty girls ... or a bit of the old ultra-violence ... went to jail, was re-conditioned ... and came out a different young man ... or was he ?"
NTT has given fans of the movie, A Clockwork Orange, something to salivate over with his Custom Alexfigure. Having 2 older brothers, I got exposed to many things I should not have seen and this movie was one of them. When it came out on VHS tape, my brother got a hold of a copy and being 7 years old at the time, I had no idea what was going on in that movie. I have never seen it since but seeing NTT's Alex figure makes me want to revisit the movie. He captures the essence of a crazy person with this custom and he is decked out in his Clockwork Orange garb. Head over to eBay to view more photos and place a bid for this cult classic Custom Alex figure.
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."

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."
