Flynn - Custom 10" MADL by Jon-Paul Kaiser

One of Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest commissions is a 10" Custom MADL of Flynn, from the movie Tron Legacy. After chatting back and forth with the client about different costume variants, they settled on the white robe costume. The robe outfit goes well with the MADL shape and the contrast really makes the face pop. Jon-Paul Kaiser is most likely gearing up for ToyConUK 2015, so keep an eye out on all the goodies that attendees will have a chance at. As with all of Jon-Paul's work, photography is courtesy of Justin Allfree.
