Tenacious Toys Custom Marshall Blind Box Series reveal: LYS0L

LYS0L (aka Brian Ahlbeck) has been very actively customizing and making resin toys up in upstate NY. He posts a lot to the various forums, and you can follow his new work on Flickr here.
You can sometimes find him outside the Manhattan toy events hanging out with miscreants like NEMO and OsirisOrion. I tell ya, he's hanging with the wrong crowd. But he makes some killer customs. I pulled him out of his element for this series, asking him to paint and not sculpt. Took some convincing but of course LYS0L's customs came out looking great- the paint is so cleanly applied, you'd think they were production pieces. There are 3 like the one seen above, plus one variant.
