Transformers War for Cybertron Corrupted Optimus Prime Custom by Speedlees

War for Cybertron Corrupt Optimus Prime

Deviating from the classic G1 paint scheme, Speedlees ventures into the realm of the 'what if' with his Custom War for Cybertron Corrupted Optimus Prime figure.  Imagine if Nemesis Prime got a hold of Optimus, but not fully, and was able to turn him into a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type character where one half of of the figure is Optimus and the other half his Nemesis Prime.  Portrayed by one half of the figure taking on a red/blue color scheme and the other half taking on a green/purple scheme, Speedlees has achieved what nobody ever imagined...a corrupted Optimus Prime.  Who knows what is in store for the Autobots...only time will tell!

Black Knight Spawn Marvel Legends Custom Figure by Speedlees

I don't if I should call this a figure or a work of art but Speedlees has definitely achieved something monumental with his Black Knight Spawn Marvel Legends Custom figure.  I had to do a double take when I read that this figure is 100% hand sculpted because the figure is so intricately detailed.  The shoulder and leg armor are my favorite parts of this figure as the skulls look they are screaming out of the figure.  There is so much dimension to this figure that it would need to studied up close to really see all of the detail but from a far, you can really see Speedlees artistic prowess and technique shine through.

Speedlees has made a video and you get to see this Black Knight Spawn Marvel Legends Custom figure in some of the early stages of development:

Wolverine X-Force Marvel Legends Custom by Speedlees

On November 21st, I came across a killer Custom Marvel Legends X-Force set by Speedlees so I decided to feature each figure individually.  Today, the focus turns to the Custom Marvel Legends X-Force Wolverine in the set.  I have seen other X-Force Wolverine figures and there is one from Sideshow that I am comparing this one to.  I think Speedlees figure is so much better than what any "professional" toy company can produce.  The figure from Sideshow looks to hulky and muscular for my tastes but Speedlees Custom Marvel Legends X-Force Wolverine is very proportionate to his body and the muscles are just the right size.  The coloring and styling of the X-Force costume is right on.  I like the dark blades on the figure as well as the mask.  Overall, a great piece of work!  Here is a close up of the figure:

Transformers War for Cybertron is a third person shooter that was released this year and Speedlees Customs has translated the leader of the Decepticons from the video game into this killer Custom War for Cybertr on Megatron figure.  What is great about this figure is that the paint aps look like metal and the colors look like the video game version.  Along with the paint aps looking very realistic, the colors have a weathered, battled look to them.  Here is a close up shot:
