Custom 3 3/4" FATAL FURY Terry Bogard

U knew it was coming! (If you know me, that is...)

I saw a Marvel Legends scale Terry Bogard a couple of weeks back by Kyle Robinson and realized that I needed to get up off my ass and go ahead and make one in 1:18th scale. Here he is!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine-body, jacket
G.I. Joe:ROC Arctic Attack Storm Shadow- Upper arms
G.I. Joe Diguised Flint- lower arms
G.I. Joe: RESOLUTE Duke- feet, hands (spliced with Marvel Universe Black Spidey)
Revoltech Dante- head
fodder cap

He was pretty simple to make, although getting the cap to fit the head was a bit of a challenge. It's attached by 2 small magnets so it can be removed.

Custom G.I. Joe RESOLUTE Snake Eyes

Here is everybody's favorite silent Ninja from G.I. Joe: RESOLUTE, Snake Eyes! He is actually a commission piece done for someone on Since I had already done Snake Eyes in 5" scale, this one was pretty easy to do since I was already familiar with the elements involved. Now, I can't let ol' Snake Eyes get lonely, can I...

Custom Cammy Action Figure

Here's my latest completed custom figure; Cammy from Street Fighter! There's actually a lot more going on with this figure than it seems. Her boots are from two different figures, her leotard is sculpted, and her head has about 6 different parts. She's 3 3/4 inches tall, 1:18th scale. Hope you like!

So here's the famous Solid Snake! Finally finished this one and learned a LOT of lessons along the way, so there will definitely be another version with a different recipe.

Custom Sniper Wolf Figure

I'm a HUGE Metal Gear Solid fan, so the characters in this series have been calling me to interpret them in action figure form. Since 3 3/4" seems to be the scale of choice for G.I. Joe fans, and it's becoming easier and easier to find figures made in this scale (or thereabouts) I've decided to do my future custom jobs in this size.

Ms. Marvel Head
Lady Jaye torso/arms
Scarlett legs/ Snake Eyes boots
Indiana Jones German Soldier jacket skirt
Elite Force rifle

Some sculpting (Apoxie)

Version 1. I'll be making another version as soon as the parts come in...

Custom G.I. Joe RESOLUTE Figures

As I mentioned earlier, G.I. Joe RESOLUTE got me back into this whole action figure customizing thing. I made Samus about a year ago, and shelved her. I had planned to do a Hanzo and Galford (from Samurai Shodown) FOREVER, but never got around to it. G.I. Joe was my favorite toy line as a kid, and the leaked RESOLUTE trailer got me hyped and in a kid/toy mood. So, I set out to create the "Alpha Squad" of G.I. Joe! In actuality, they're more like the "M.A.S.S. Device infiltration team from the first Sunbow miniseries.

And here is the team all finished!

Custom Action Figures...

OK, this is a hobby that I have actually been doing since I was about 10 years old (thanks to my bro for reminding me of this). Anyways, waiting for G.I. Joe Resolute to premiere (well worth it) I needed something to occupy my time and mind. So now I'm going to start posting my custom action figure works-in-progress and finished pieces here.

This is the first custom figure that I did since laying off the hobby as a kid. Don't ask me why I chose Samus Aran, but I did.

...And of course I had to make a Metroid to bother her...

Aren't they cute?
