Askew Rangers customs by Josh Mayhem

Josh Mayhem Presents: “The Askew Rangers” - Heavily armed creatures from the forest of the future battling for supremacy in a world where survival of the fittest is the only law of the jungle. 

This custom series displays vibrant colors and crisp lines utilizing simple paint foundations as complimentary backdrops to an overwhelming display of weaponry and accessories. A recycling element is seen as an underlying tone in this collection. Pieces of scrap metal, wires from vintage electronics and weaponry accessories from the creator's massive collection of vintage action figures serve as a reminder of the rooted toy history and originality each individual piece holds. 

Every Askew Ranger has some form of a working component to it including working lights, spring loaded and moveable devices, and removable elements that evoke the versatility of an action figure with the visual aesthetic of a vinyl toy.
