Jumbo Machinders customized with Monster Kolor paint

Look at some Monster Kolor eye candy and listen to a bunch of guys at a barbeque explain the Matrix movies in way too much detail.

JFury custom DragonBallZ and Triumph customs

Vegeta from DragonBallZ
 JFury is further expanding his repertoire with thes two commissions done for a KR boardie:

Here are my latest customs, they were commissions from a KR boardie and they were a lot of fun to do. I personally have never seen a episode of dragon ball z but it was a fun character to do and the Foomi was a perfect platform for it. And who doesn't like Triumph the insult dog!

Let it be known: JFury will now rock your DBZ custom commission. Contact him here.
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

OsirisOrion custom Mickey Mouse for PlayImaginative

I can't tell you how much I love OsirisOrion's paint work. It's mind-blowing. This is his custom Mickey Mouse for the PlayImaginative show. Sick, deep metallic color. Heavy clearcoat makes the paint look so deep that you can dive into it like a swimming pool. Everything he paints looks amazing. Check out this album he has on Flickr. It's just amazing. That's all.

Leecifer x Plaseebo Tropical Night Gamer

LEECIFER "in cahoots with" Plaseebo
"The Greater Tropical Night Gamer" custom edition by Lee "LEECIFER" Gajda is a 7 inch high vinyl Night Gamer which has been hand painted and embellished. This figure is limited to 8 pieces and has glass eye inserts and a motion activated LED unit inside the head, as well as Black Light action.

Thought to be primarily equatorial inhabitants, it's quite rare to see one in Northern climes. These shy and reclusive creatures are easily recognizable by their organically geometric markings, bright coloration, and vestigial wings/ear tufts. Seemingly evoking the oceanic opulence of coral reef patterns and crystal blue waters with a body equally inspired by lush vibrant foliage and the plumage of the rarest of topical birds. Their true beauty can only be appreciated in hand when it's possible to examine the subtle hues of metallic golds, coppers and other reflective colors adorning their skin. An additional epidermal surprise awaits when one exploits the Greater Tropical Night Gamer's fascination for UV/black lights revealing hints of almost incandescent phosphorescent coloration. This small flutter of 8 was lured stateside by Bob Conge and Lee "Leecifer" Gajda for selective collector adoption.

M'Ickey custom Mickey Mouse by alarment for PlayImaginative

 Allan Armenta (aka alarment) shares with us an excellent custom Mickey figure, which he did for the Play Imaginative showcase of their Mickeys. Nicely textured sculpting and detailed paint make this one an extremely well-executed custom! Little dude looks like he's at the end of his rope. Just so all of you know, they way this custom looks is how I feel inside 80% of the time.
