DSB's custom figures

Postby dropshipbob » Thu Jun 28, 2012 12:02 pm

I thought I'd post some of my work. Since my forced exile, I have bussied myself making various custom figures in the 3.75"/1:18th range. It started when I found a 25th anniversary GI Joe figure that I thought with a little work would look like Kurt Russel from the movie "The Thing" (one of my favorites).
It snowballed from there.

I have almost the complete cast from that movie done with a few extra "accessories".

I'll begin posting shortly.

Some really questionable formatting in there!

These look nice. I don't have any customizing skills.

Thank you! :)

Yeah, I don't know what happened with the pics, I was cutting and pasting my little heart out...must have picked up some unnecessary script.

K, funny thing about those "The Thing" customs. I posted them on a Thing fan site and supposedly the owner of the site had the email address for the actor who played Windows. He liked it and asked if he could email the picture to the actor to which I said "sure". The next day he PM's me saying that he sent the actor the picture and he really liked it.

So if it happened, and I'll just go along with that, it's pretty cool. :)

I wasn't expecting the Thing figures to be so recognizable (for no particular reason). Great work!

I wanted them to be as accurate as possible, maybe the hard work paid off!
