Backyard Legends is a project by sculptor and designer Tony Fowler which celebrates some of the “also ran” action figure properties of the 80′s that, although they never achieved the dizzy heights of Transformers, GI Joe, TMNT or MOTU, were awesome in their own right.  The project seeks to celebrate those nearly forgotten characters by […]

MOTUC-Style Vultureman by Claw Guy 3

December 7, 2010

Comments Off

Wow! How awesome is this MOTUC-style Vultureman custom by Claw Guy 3 from the He-Man.org forums? The body utilized pre-existing parts from throughout the MOTUC line, including a brilliant reuse of the fur from the top of the King Grayskull cape.  What really impresses me the most, though, is the head which is a 100% […]

I know.  I know.  I’ve been writing about Motorbot a lot, lately. But this recent custom from him for the Mr. Power show (at Toy Qube in New York May 21st – June 1st) is far too freaking awesome to ignore.  Based upon the Mr. Power platform figure by Phalanx Studio, this piece takes a […]

One of the cool things that comes out of Royalt1us’s Annual fan character contest (besides his awesome statues) is the way that people share their original ideas with others who might feel inspired to bring them to life.

Saturday-Man Custom Figure by Bruno Orbit

February 17, 2010

Comments Off

Sometimes, re-imagining an 80′s figure in a way that is completely over the top and comedically pop art actually brings you much closer to something you would have seen on the shelves back in those days than a straight forward custom.  Such is the case with Saturday-Man, by the insanely talented Bruno Orbit.  This figure […]

I don’t understand the German language.  Like, at all.  I do, however, like to occasionally frequent the custom figure section on the great German MOTU fan site, PlanetEternia.de.  One of the customizers who always seems to have cool stuff posted goes by the name “Brachy”.  This particular creation of his, “Brachypelma” (maybe the name would […]
