I have finally finished my big commission, Hungry Hungry Koopas II. I was trying to figure out a way to make another one without repeating what I did with the first. Here is what I came up with. I decided to make it with the remaining Koopa Kids to make it different and I painted the marbles to look like fireballs.
Since I don’t have anymore Koopa Kids to use, this will be the last Hungry Hungry Koopas game I will be making. If someone has a good idea for another version of Hungry Hungry Hippos, I will be willing to try, but I think I am done with Koopas for now.

A Princess needs time to unwind and relax, and what better way than to take a dip in a lake. Unfortunately, she has some unwanted on-lookers. Is this another reason they are called Shy-guys?
For this piece, I used a Princess Peach head, an anime figure body, Lego bushes, and a couple different Shy-Guys. I have actually had this on my cutting board for quite a while, but I finally got around to finishing it. If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page. I will be selling this at Albuquerque Comic Expo, and anything that does not sell at the con will be available on my website and on etsy.

I love going to Goodwill. I find all kinds of toys that I would not normally get to make customs out of. This is an example of that. Now, before anyone gets mad that I cut up an N64 Mario Kart Bowser figure, I need to tell you his story. I found this guy in a bag of mixed figures. I saw the shell and knew that it was a great find, but I didn’t realize that it did not have arms, or looked like it had been chewed by a dog. When I got him home, I took pity on him and decided to build him a working body.
I used an Iron Monger as the base, and I added a bunch of things to give it a mech flare. My favorite part of this is the little Bowser Jr. companion that flies around his head. The shell on his head was from some Japanese Koopa shell, and the feet are from a different Iron Man figure. I was trying to incorporate as much Bowser as I could in this figure, so I took some little shells from the Furuta Choco Egg figures and made them into knee and elbow pads. The rest are just left-over parts I had.

Here is my latest custom gun. This is a Zombie hunters dream, with a chainsaw for up-close attacks, and a sniper rifle for long range attacks. This is a fully functional NERF gun with a modified clip. The clip can hold 12 shots. I had to cut the clip down to make if fit with the form of the gun.
If you would like to see more pictures, please go to My Flickr Page I will have this for sale next month when I go to ACE (Albuquerque Comic Expo) and if it doesn’t sell there, it will be posted here.
I found this gun at my local Goodwill, and I thought it would look great repainted. It was really scuffed up, but I only got if for a couple of bucks, so it was worth it. I used a Tiger Electronics Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX. This is still a fully functional gun with all the lights and sounds, the only thing is that the front no longer comes off.

I love Duck Tales, and my favorite character of all time from the series is Gizmo Duck. Gizmo Duck also made an appearance in Darkwing Duck. I have always loved the idea of having a suit that had all kinds of cool gadgets and gizmos at your disposal. This was a commissioned piece that I just finished. I was really excited to do this one, and I love the way it came out.
I used a DC universe Toyman figure, a Maisto Motorcycle, and the head of a Donald Duck Happy Meal Toy. The armor was sculpted and I put magnets in the body so that the extra arms could attack to the figure. The hands are Drossel figma hands that I put on the end of some LEGO pieces. I believe the guns are from a transformer that I had in my parts box.

Here is something that I thought would be a cute idea. I took the Angry Bird Star Wars figures and put them on the corresponding bodies. I originally just did it with the Darth Vader Pig, but it looked so funny, I thought I would do it with them all

[In] the great fief of Belfalas, dwelt Prince Imrahil in his castle of Dol Amroth by the sea, and he was of high blood, and his folk also, tall men and proud with sea-grey eyes. –The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 1, Minas Tirith
Here is a commission piece that I did that is a bit of a change from my usual. I love the LOTR series, so I thought that this would be a great way to show my love. I used Boromir’s legs, a Gondorian Soldier’s torso and arms, and an Eomer head. The symbol on the armor was carved out of Apoxie Sculpt. All figures are from the LOTR figure line. I made the base from scratch using LEGO bricks, rocks, and model train trees.

After making the original Zombie Gameboy, I thought it would be interesting to make a gameboy color version. This was a commission that I completed a couple of weeks ago, and I thing this came out a lot better than the original. I used hands from a Cletus robot, and I used feet from a Minion from Megamind. This one is a lot more sturdy, and stands so much better. After doing this, I got some good ideas for some other non-zombie transformations for a gameboy.

I have been really busy with commissions lately, but I actually have a few ideas that I have also been working on, so hopefully I will get some time to complete these. If you would like to see what I am working on, please like me on Facebook.
I have marked down most of my higher priced items by 20%. I need to make more room for more customs, so I have decided to sell them at a cheaper price. Please check out My Store. Thanks.
