Well I thought I would take a stab at customizing and post some pics with a nudge from my buddies on the org. Hope you enjoy and please feel free to provide feedback. I have been very lucky to have guidance from Motu Mulder, E-Man, Josephus and Tyke so please feel free to comment. Enjoy

All of them look great!!
You have to post some recipes (part used)
You have been busy!
Nice and clean work, you've got a steady hand (pin striping on Zodak is excellent).
And what did you use for Icer's mittens and feet they look great!
These look super, curious what will be next after you had a rest and a breather after these.
Nope.... nothing here! Just a link to my site http://motumulder.webklik.nl/page/fotoalbum with customs!
If this is your first Attempt at Customizing, I can't wait to see more figures when you get more experience at customizing. lol

I've said it before and I'll say it here again. You are up there with the best vintage customizers out there!
And I'm not considering myself to be 'up there' although I've been customizing for about 6 years now. Your use of parts is great, your painting skills are flawless, your choice of characters is awesome (Lodar!!!, GARN!!!) so if this is just the beginning I can't wait to see how you progress in the years to come. Great!
Those all look fantastic! Very good work my friend. I am looking forward to seeing what you have planned next.
Those look great!
Thanks so much guys, really really appreciate the feedback. I was pretty hesitant to post them because I see so many awesome figures so I'm glad you like em'.
To answer MotuMulder's question on the mits... i used apoxie sculpt on top of the casted arms and legs. I couldn't figure out a way to cast the white plastic and the clear resin without doing two seperate pieces so i just used the 2 part apoxie sculpt mix. i guess i could have just sculpted first then casted and painted but hind site is 20/20 right?
Here are the recipes I used for them:
Teela with lots of apoxie sculpt
Tail is made with "sculpty" and a wire frame so it moves and is posable which i liked
Sculpted head then casted with dyed clear resin
body parts - he-man arms and legs and torso
Triclops - just re-sculpted the head to give him the mo-hawk
Bear Gladiator -
Galaxy warrior Tiger man head - shaved down and sculpted
Beast man body
Cricket Gladiator -
Modulok arms and torso
Multi bot legs - heavily modified
multi bot head shaved down big time and sculpted
head, arms and waist articulate but legs don't .(
molded beastmans shoulder pads added
sculpted everything else
I have a few more I will post this week for critique. Thanks again!
Fun stuff! Nice job.
