Custom 12" Cobra Commander in Sideshow / Dragon Style by ms_kittka


Cobra Commander is at the helm of his massive Cobra army, amassing soldiers, elite forces, and guards. Absolute power! Total control of the world . . . its people, wealth, and resources–that's the objective of Cobra Commander. This fanatical leader rules with an iron fist. He demands total loyalty and allegiance. His main battle plan for world control relies on revolution and chaos. He personally led uprisings in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and other trouble spots. Responsible for kidnapping scientists, businessmen, and military leaders, then forcing them to reveal their top level secrets. Cobra Commander is hatred and evil personified. Corrupt. A man without scruples. Probably the most dangerous man alive!

This week, ms_kittka brings us a highly detailed custom in the style of Sideshow and Dragon figures. This customizer describes how this Cobra Commander was made:

"This is a custom made Cobra Commander. The head is a made of a two part plastic compound. Casted from a silicon mold of a head sculpted especially for this project. The head is mounted onto a 1/6 scale Dragon body (neo 2 I think) with a two-part epoxy, then painted. The head is totally poseable. It can look up and down and spin all the way around 360 degree’s. The clothes are made from some heavily modified Kriegsmarine Dragon clothes."
There has been a resurgence of GI Joes as the 25th Anniversary is upon Joe fans across the world. This is a great time for Joe fans and each and every one of them should not miss out on ms_kittka's Custom 12" Cobra Commander!

Custom Star Wars / Sideshow Aurra Sing Bounty Hunter by customikey

Pain, death and vengeance have been constants in Aurra Sing's life. Had she benefited from a better upbringing, perhaps she may have grown to be one of the greatest of the Jedi order. Instead, she became one its deadliest scourges.

cutomikey brings to life this Expanded Universe Bounty Hunter with life-like detail! As one of his prize custom pieces, he goes on to explain in more detail about how he brought Aurra to life:

"Aurra Sing, the first bounty hunter seen in the chronological Star Wars, from Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Seen briefly during the podrace, she has since developed into one of the most interesting characters in the Star Wars universe, developing a feared reputation as a devoted Jedi Killer. One might suppose that General Grievous's propensity for collecting the lightsabers of fallen Jedi was inspired by Aurra's example.

I made her from parts using the Hasbro Masterpiece figure and also a Sideshow figure chosen for it's excellent resemblance to the actress who portrayed Aurra in the film. She is painted in acrylics, with an eye for realism and detail. Her eyes look alive! Her costume and weapons were all weathered in acrylics for realism. Her antenna and the D-rings that hold the strap to her rifle are real metal. The barrels of her pistols have been drilled and her fingers have been seperated so she can slip them into the triggers. She has no problems holding any of her weapons. Thanks to the well-designed Sideshow body,she also has no trouble holding a variety of poses."

The weapon details initially caught my attention. The rifle and guns look like they have been through hell and back and the scale compliments the figure nicely. As you look closer, the way that her eyes have been detailed really make this custom come alive. Eyes are one of those details that if you get wrong, can throw off the entire look you were going for. The eyes, in this case, draw you in, which I am sure Aurra wants you to do so she can lay a world of Bounty Hunter hurt on you.

Compared to the Aurra Sing image from the Star Wars databank (shown above), customikey has truly done justice to her representation in the Star Wars Universe.
