Its a Masters of the Universe Most Wanted Collectibles Update!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
I must say I really, really liked MOTU when I was a kid. About the only action figure collection I cared about as much as Star Wars was MOTU. I can remember ole Trap Jaw being one of my favorite villians. This new Masters of the Universe 1/4 Scale Trapjaw Statue looks fantastic!

Most Wanted Collectibles has some other great MOTU Items while you are perusing the Trapjaw Statue too. I could see that He-Man and Beast Man Statue complementing this one nicely. By The Power of Greyskull!



Help us decide the focus for our Birthday Bash Custom Challenge this year!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
It is time to gear up for our annual Birthday Bash as it is time to celebrate one more year on the web and this year we decided to make it special by running a poll of your ideas for the custom challenge. Now this one is gonna run two months so we want it to be more involved than just one custom figure and we want the focus to be wide open so please try not to narrow it to one time frame or skill set (say sculpting for example), but we want to get all the ideas together this week and then vote em next and get started!



ST Juggernaut amazes once again!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
"Jor-El W/ Kelex: This has taken me a few months to make, and several months since its inception. I originally tasked Glassman Customs with shrinking the Mattel movie masters Jor-El head for me, after a month or two, that was done and I started work on my Jor El 2.0. Its been possibly my most complex sculpt next to my Dredd 2012 and Marvel Select Winter Soldier customs. I've really enjoyed making this custom and its kind of strange that he is finally finished after having him production for so long. For those that pay attention to detail, you may notice that Jor-El sports a fully sculpted mole on his left cheek for authenticity purposes haha. The cape is removable and is attached via neodynium magnet, as are the shoulder pads." Talk about some gorgeous sculpt work on this!



Custom Jedi is back!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
"I finally found the time to finish this droid. I'm so glad to get him out of the "to-do" pile and worked in to a diorama." It was good to see how this one turned out. The lines painted on this one seem so precise!



Darth Daddy is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
"The custom action figure for the character of Sergeant Doallyn took less than one minute to make. I just sliced the neck ball joint off of the Bane Malar figure and popped the head of the new Black Series Brock Starsher (Jabba's Skiff Guard #27) onto the Bane Malar body. I bought the Bane Malar as soon as I found out Brock Starsher was being released. It was a great way to add to Jabba's Denizens. Expect this custom to show up heavy in the forums by a variety of customizers. Lot's of people have plans to make this one." I can see why as it looks great!



BL4CK5H33P is back with a JOE/COBRA Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
"COBRA Arctic Ops Snow Serpent Officer/Sniper: BBI Elite Forces torso on modded Star Wars Firespeeder pilot hips/legs, Galactic Marine boots, Joe DG Duke feet, Joe Steel Brigade arms/hands, Joe Alley Viper head with BBI helmet, mixed gear, BBI rifle & fur from Jabba henchman added to wrist cuffs, boot tops, codpiece & shoulders." There is also a pretty nice looking Outback to peruse too.



Mandalore25 is back with some Sith...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, September 17 2014
"This one's interesting, I was working on this Sith Sorcerer for a while now, and saw the other figure at Big Lots and thought "wouldn't that make a cool sithspawn?" I also happened to get my first shipment of clay that same day to start sculpting, I'll show how that is going later, but with it could easily make spines for him. Hope you guys like the idea too!" Matter of fact if you really like these two they can be yours at this link.



MAXX Replicas finishes his Mission Briefing Diorama...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Here my latest Star Wars EP IV Mini-Diorama (weekend project): YAVIN 4 - MISSION BRIEFING. The videoplayer shows the original attack-simulation animation which was used in the movie. A Youtube Video is coming soon." Wow, wow, Wow! While we wait for that video make sure you go in and enjoy his image update at the aforementioned link.



John Caliber shares Chapter 1 of Brain of the Ark...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Hello there. Hope you enjoy this seven-episode story which will be published twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays." Sounds like a plan to me. I am already looking forward to more episodes! Enjoy Chapter 1 of his great graphic fiction.



Mr. Black goes really small on us with this update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Before I forget, I received my teenie weenie tiny magnets and used two of them for Alpha's range finder. Each magnet measures 1 x 0.5mm." Wow, now that is small! Wow do they work great for that range finder though!



Darth Sinister presents a different point of view...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Continuing with the "Old Stuff" series, this next group was an experiment in the 'what if' for the action figure world. What if there was a company out there that gave us a 3-3/4" Retro TV line. This was something I'd love to see hanging on the pegs. So here is my 3-3/4" version of The Six Million Dollar Man. I did several characters and gave them a slight up-date with clothing and gadgets. They also would sport a GI Joe type of articulated body for some great action poses." What a cool idea. I remember that TV Show as a kid!



Wardog introduces Realism meets Plastic...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Over the next few weeks (or how ever long) I plan on doing do some shot my plastic men in my back and front yard. We've had very unseasonal rains here so everything is overgrown (much to my wife's annoyance) and perfect for doing outdoors photography stuff." Enjoy The Solitude of Master Yoda. WD has the perfect environment to do this doesn't he!



Starchaser is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, September 16 2014
"Here's a couple of more involved customs: Krysa “Jack” Besalt – late teens; slicer; her dad and brother are in prison in the Corporate Sector for their slicing work; mother is dead, so effectively she's an orphan; she's quite vengeful toward CorSec. She gets liberated from a Corporate Sector Security detail by Yubookoo (the Wookie) and becomes a part of his team." More await after you click.



Halnarthax87 is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, September 15 2014
"Pardon the title. I cobbled together a more realistic Rex, complete with jet pack. He and Ahsoka will take on the galaxy together after the Clone Wars... after Ahsoka sings her personal rendition of Let it Go. No seriously I think that song is rather befitting her departure from the Order..." LOL! Thanks for giving me my morning chuckle! Great custom.



Mandalore25 is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, September 15 2014
"My Latest Figure is this Sith Assassin I listed today. It's the first time I tried like a mummy wrap around the head and neck. They're wrapped separately of course so no movement is restricted, and I managed to keep the head shape. I like that this is a figure represents how keeping scraps and thinking of how to use pieces for other than what they are can turn out great, like the eye slit is just scrap of plastic from a helmet I cut up, the armor pieces on the boots were holsters I cut off another figures sculpt, and the armor on the arms are pieces of a hat I cut up." Lots of work on this one folks and the soft goods looks great.
