Custom Starriors Ripsaw action figure

"Each day the Chaos Crystal was active within Skeletor's lair more and more portals opened - these strange dimensional tears opening all over Eternia. From a far off universe, where Earth had been rendered a wasteland and only intelligent machines roamed. One machine, the Protector class, Ripsaw, was drawn to the portal's light and sucked in! Now, finding itself in a dimension of magic and technology, Ripsaw must find a way to contact his fellow Starriors so they too can learn about this strange land."

Another toy line of the 80's, the Starriors arrive! This week we have a re-imagined version of the Protector class Ripsaw, created in MotUC scale. Using the original head and weapon arm of the figure I took a Rotar body, Extendar limbs, MARS robot lower legs, Captain America Mecha feet, and a Zoid-crab shell for the metallized shield. The shield is magnetic and attached to Ripsaw's original spinning blade-shield arm which was grafted on. Spaz-Stix mirror Chrome airbrush paint was used on the larger shield. Different foil warning/caution stickers were applied like the vintage toy featured and Ripsaw was given metallic blue airbrushed highlights.

God Emperor Trump custom action figure

"Since the dystopian days of 2017 one man clad in golden armor wields a mighty sword against those who would do our nation harm. He puts America First and stands like a mighty wall between all those who would invade and plunder its riches. Relentlessly attacked by enemies foreign and domestic, Emperor Donald Trump quashes the globalist forces by laying down law and order throughout the land. The power of the American voice flows through his veins, the whispers of Conservative values on his tongue. The choice was made to Make America Great Again and with his supporters in tow the mighty Emperor brought about change and prosperity to the USA, ALL HAIL EMPEROR TRUMP!"

Ok, maybe Donald Trump doesn't go around wearing power armor and smiting enemies with a giant sword but the 'God Emperor Trump' meme was pretty cool, superimposing Trump's head on the Warhammer 40K character. You may have seen it on facebook and image boards, and I decided to create a 6" Marvel Legends scale figure of him. I used a NECA Heroes of the Storm Tyrael body, cast Donald Trump head, DCD Aquaman hands, Digimon armor, and different fodder parts including metal eagles/wing symbols to create him. His standard was made using a Marvel Select Doctor Doom throne banner, Namor trident, and American flag ribbon. A very extensive weathered gold metallic paint job was airbrushed on to complete his glorious look. Love him or hate him if you're an American citizen then Donald Trump is your president as of this writing (02/02/18)!

You can see a lot more of his pictures here on his own page here: www.angelfire.com/mech/jinsaot…

Demodog Dart customized action figure
He's the cutest, slimiest, hungriest little Demodog out there, Dart! You know it from Stranger Things Season 2 and here I'm bringing you a fully articulated version scaled to the 6" McFarlane figure line. Dart was created using a NECA Neomorph body with shortened limbs and the Funko 3.5" Demogorgon head and limbs grafted on. I used the back of the Neomorph's head as Dart's tail and gave him the Demodog green/brown/black skin coloration with the exception of Dart's yellow left side markings. Now when McFarlane releases their Dustin figure he can have a Dart to go on adventures with!

For more upsidedown pics head to Dart's page here: www.angelfire.com/mech/jinsaot…

Dart is also up for auction on ebay at the time of this posting so good luck if you're looking to win him!

Custom TMNT Classics Casey Jones Figure
It's time once again for some TMNT goodness and this sporty do-gooder is sure to give Shredder and his goons a bad time! Casey Jones arrives in vintage style, created to look like the toy you had as a child but updated for the 7" scale of the new figures. Casey was made from the body and lower legs of a First Blood NECA Rambo, Predator Dutch arms, Splinter Cell feet, and random fodder hands. An original Playmates Casey Jones head was modded for the neck joint and added, as were the weapons/golf bag. This pays great tribute to the original Playmates sculpts, truly ahead of their time and withstanding the years as well. If you'd like to own one of my customs head to my site www.jincustom.com and see what's up for auction this week!

Custom First Appearance Sabertooth Marvel legends
Sabertooth is back and he's looking....classic! Straight from his first appearance fighting Wolverine, this Sabertooth was made with the basic large ML body, cast heads of the Toybiz Face-Off Sabertooth and cowl fur, and sculpted limb fur. He was airbrushed for shading and sealed using combinations of Liquitex matte/satin/gloss archival varnish. For more images of him and his alternate head visit my site, www.jincustom.com

Hey, hello there! It's been a while since I've used DeviantArt. Almost two years have passed and I have...um....24k notifications sitting in my inbox. There wasn't one specific reason I stopped using DA to be truthful, just a lot of little things that caused me to be disinterested in the overall experience here. One was the constant "you can't do that without a premium membership" and another was the constant complaining by artists here. Yeah, the artists, not the critiquers. I also decided I didn't want to be known as "That guy with a DeviantArt page" as it was beginning to be a stigmata with that kind of attention foisted upon users. There's a lot of...eh, "questionable" art that gets uploaded here and being associated with DA was almost as bad as being associated with Tumblr.

However I'm told that many people find my work exclusively through google searches which links them here, then they ask me why I only update my site and post to forums or Instagram. Well, ok, I'll try DA again for a while and see how that goes. It's update time!

I want to wish you a very happy birthday, dude. And to thank you. Back in 2010 I saw the Iron Man customs you posted, the ones you mashed up with some Glyos pieces. September 20th, 2010 man... that's the day I got into Glyos. Cut ahead seven years and nine days exactly - this past Friday, when I hung out with another Glyos buddy. We had a great time, and he helped me snap out of a depressive funk that's been hanging over me of late. Forgive the tl;dr live story, but I just wanted to thank you. Your customs lead me to a fandom that has resulted in some amazing friendships. Glyos has gotten me through some very tough times, and to this day I still tell people it's all because of the incomparable Jin-Saotome. Happy birthday, dude ^_^ And thank you, once again.
