I was born in western Kentucky in 1987... but I never really grew up. I always have, and always will LOVE TOYS.
I'm a customizer, which means as a toy collector the majority of my collection will not remain in mint condition! (I've been compared to SID from toy-story...).
I re-work existing action figures, or other toys, into whatever idea I have at the time. Most of the time I'm rebuilding existing figures to add articulation or features to fix Hasbro's mistakes!
I've recently started to branch out into sculpting and casting my own parts, but the majority of my figures use highly modified stock pieces from modern toy lines.
I typically work in the 1:18th scale, which means my figures are on average 4 inches tall. Interestingly, the majority of the work I do revolves around the star wars universe and it's characters. I do branch out into other 'verses though (Including Marvel and Gi-Joe), but this is limited by the availability of 1:18th scale figures and my imagination.
I'm very open about my tricks and techniques, so please ask any questions you'd like about how I made a figure. I have even started doing video tutorials on my facebook page, so look it up, like it, and watch for those.
As always, I enjoy comments of praise... but I'd love to know what it is that you like so much about something. I know not everyone on DA is a toy customizer, but you can still tell me what you think is awesome about a specific piece! I love constructive criticism too, if you have an idea to make something better, TELL ME!
Thanks in advance for all the Favs! and of course, like me on facebook:www.facebook.com/pages/SpudaFe…
