Continuing to use some cast pieces from my exoskeleton set (legs, feet, and arms). Boba Fett gets a power up!
Made this for Lou Pimentel's When Hell Freezes Over 2 Show at myplasticheart. Lou designed the Cranston Jr figure that I'm using as the base platform. Robotech still gives me warm fuzzies after all these years. Happy to say that it sold and I'm giving all the money away to a fellow artist named RSIN.

Another variation using cast pieces from my exoskeleton set (mask, legs, and arms). The dunny ears are swept back and the chest armor is all new. The leg attachments add three inches to the height.

Thundercats was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Here's my rendition of the show's famous lead character, Lion-O, consisting of a 13" PAW custom + 14" scratch-built Sword of Omens. I started this further back than I care to remember and I'm grateful to the commissioner for being so patient. I added additional musculature and joints plus the belt, arm and shoulder armor. My favorite part is the Claw Shield which lifted the figure an inch higher than the original12-inch height.And the other side:

This classic Iron Man is based off the Billy character from Blamo Toys. The Billy has a rather soporofic energy about it. I wanted to see what would happen by going the other direction and turning Billy into an action figure. The original Billy figure is carved from wood. This sculpt is made using Smooth-On's Free Form Epoxy Putty and Magic Sculpt and carved to mimic a wood effect. Here's a pic with the original.

Dang, this took a long time! Almost a full year. I have wanted to make a Voltron for the past five years; he's my favorite super robot. For this project, I molded and cast all the major parts, over a dozen different molds (each arm and foot, horns, wings, nose, teeth, sword, and so on). It's been a great learning experience.

For the Art Without Borders Charity Show at Art Whino. This show will benefit Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières). It's an excellent organization " work[ing] in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation." I was very pleased to be invited and wanted to make something that very directly related to their organization's work.
