Another Journal Entry Update

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 23, 2013, 2:45 PM
Facebook l Toy Review Blog l Twitter l Website l Customs for sale l Guides l Gallery

Hey, woah, I should probably update my journal more often! Just got back from
the Nashville Comic-Con and had a blast! I'm hoping to get a booth there next
year. If that works out you all can drop by and watch me work, I'll have tables
set up where myself and others will be customizing on-site. There's not a ton
more I have to update in the Journal here other than asking you to check out
my most recent deviations to see the newest customs I've created and head
on over to my website www.jinsaotomesdangeroustoys.c… for other
goodies like guides, tutorials, and product links!

  • Eating: away inside you is true talent waiting to surface
  • Drinking: and driving makes you a moron

I noticed that you like to do custom action figures from predators and recently I read a story that the Justice League faces 8 predators with the powers League (Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Plastic Man, Aquaman, Flash and Ajax ). You like this reference to help you mount these "Super Predators"?
Hello! I really like your works and have a question about paint. What kind of paint do you using and what preparation (sanding, priming, something else...) it requiers? I'm planing to do some customs myself in near future, but the paint always was a bit hard to manage for me...

All the painting tips, tools, brands, and techniques you need can be found in my Guides and Tutorials section of my site:…
Yes, already found it =D Thank you very much for this tutorials, It really helped. Especially dissassembling part. It would be real fail if I didn't know structure of the figure and few other tricks. =)

thanks for the fave man!!
Hey Jin, I have a Skylanders' Giants Ninjini figure, but as you know, it has no articulation. I was wondering how much it would cost to have you give her articulation in her ponytail, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists and waste. 

She has a Genie lamp on her back and twin swords. I think it would be kool to be able to have her hold her lamp and have a way to put a holster on her back to hold her swords and visa versa. 
man,those are some awesome stuff. hey you wanna know something that might sound handy? like to one kitbasher to a nother? well,i found out that those plastic craft beads works well as a 5mm port,might go well with that silly straw discovery you made long ago.

You mean those generic round ones you make bracelets out of? Awesome!
yup,i tried it out on a few 5mm weapons and they fit quite well,a bit tight but it works wonders.
