Heavy Mech Panda: 10" dunny

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.

Lion-O HO!: 13" PAW

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:

Iron Blam cosplay: 11" original sculpt

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.

Go-Lion Voltron! 12" Teddy Troop

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.

Mecha Dunny!

Love the dunny Mecha-version. Just a minor repaint with new hands and backpack.

Medic!: 9" munny

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.

Iron Beaver: 7' Dunny

I like to think of this as an old school John Byrne Alpha Flight Vindicator-kind of beaver.

03 February 2013

BambaBull: 14" 3A Bambaboss

This took some work! From the waist up, it's all original sculpting with the exception of the nose. Legs built using parts from a WWRP Large Martin adding 3 more inches in height.
More pics on my flickr.

Iron Bat: 7" Fonzo

This is a really great new platform. Fonzo is a 6" vinyl toy made by Freak Store. Mine is now an extra inch taller on account of those extra big ears.

Samurai

Samurai! 5" Minimunny head on a munnyworld Bub figure-the one that sorta looks like a hippo. It's got the best proportioned arms of all of them. I added legs too so this figure is now an inch taller than the original 4" figure.
