Dopey - Custom Jammie by Don P

One of Don P's, aka Patrick Lippe, most recent pieces is a custom Lil' Jammie titled "Dopey". Using one of Fuller Designs' Lil' Jammie figures, Don P created a re-sculpted head, while keeping the rest of the initial figure intact. Complete with dreadlocks and a type of smoking piece, the added paint and details were not enough for Don P. Don P's solution was to ask his wife to create a knitted cap for the custom, which does complete the overall look of this custom Lil' Jammie figure. Since this piece seems to be a commissioned one, it is not for sale. However, anyone interested in his/her own commissioned Don P custom should contact him for more info.

Pavomen the PeafOwl - Custom Painted by Toy Terror

Rich Sheehan, artist of Toy Terror, recently completed a custom creation using a Coarsetoys' Omen figure. Titled "Pavomen the PeafOwl", this custom Omen figure is painted to be disguised as a "cunning and colorful peacock". This was a commissioned piece, so it's not available, but anyone interested in a custom piece should contact Rich Sheehan at Toy Terror and get on his commission list.

The Man Inside - Custom Kozik Bust by Kevin Gosselin

More than a year after launching a successfully funded Kickstarter to produce the Dead Kozik bust, artist Kevin Gosselin is working his way through his custom Dead Kozik bust list. With 4 Kickstarter backers opting for the Custom Dead Kozik bust reward, Kevin had a good amount of work to put in. His latest custom Dead Kozik bust is titled "The Man Inside". Essentially sculpting over half of the bust, Kevin recreated the flesh version of Frank Kozik. The end result is an amazing Jason Freeny-esque piece, which will definitely make a collector pretty happy.


Oh, like with many of Kevin's projects, he decided to make a mold of the sculpt. It's quite possible for Kevin to create more of these customs in the future. Stay informed by following Kevin on his various social media sites, or better yet, keep an eye on Kevin's website.

3A Adventure Kartel Action Portable 1/12-scale figures up for preorder now

 We now have all 14 of 3A's 1/12-scale Action Portable figures up for preorder on our website. I just paid them yesterday so once that payment clears, these items are shipping to us via Express from HK. I figure an arrival date of around Halloween-ish. These are 6-inch-tall figures priced at $45 each- a bargain as far as 3A is concerned.

I ordered VERY limited quantities so if you're looking for a specific figure (esp Cherry Bomb, Bleak Mission or Cold Merde) please don't wait... I don't expect many of these to last long. Buy 3 or more of them and get free shipping in the US.

On a related note, I've dropped the price on the 2 different Michonne's Pet 1/6-scale figures to $100.
