I thought I'd do something a little different today and show you all how I make Custom Action Figures. Customs can be as easy as swapping a head or other body parts (Known as Parts Swapping) or as complicated as sculpting and fully painting a figure. Join me as I go from custom inspiration through creation and ending with photo editing.
Welcome to Under The Hood, where we open up our toys and see what makes them tick. We may even fix them from time to time. First up on the workbench is Kenner's KITT Voice Car! These cars have a few problem areas, but the voice box is the main one so we'll be tearing it down and explaining how it works.
Jada Toys has released a three pack of Delorean Time Machines from Back To The Future in their Nano Hollywood Rides line. We got ourselves a pack of them and busted out our Macro Lens to show the cars off to you!
Diamond Select Toys released their Rocketeer figure last week. Thankfully Valentine's boys hadn't got a hold of him before we could show him off to you!
There's a new wave of Marvel Legends hitting stores out there and in it is The Unbelievable Gwenpool! The comic series just ended it's run a few weeks ago making this release feel like a choice of odd timing, so let's see what the figure has in store for us.
We've got another Random Toy to show off, this time from the Microman series of 2004. Take a second to check out Automaster Ryan from the Master Force sub line!
DC Collectibles added a little bit of the future to their Batman Animated line with a Batman Beyond two pack. Today I'm taking a look at this two pack and everything it has to offer.
Finishing out our random look at Wolverine toys for this month's celebration, we're looking at a non-toy. The Wolverine From Then 'Til Now II trading card series by Comic Images. I know trading cards aren't toys, but rather than show off another Weapon X figure, I thought I'd share a Wolverine collectible that had a huge impact on me as a kid.
In the early to mid 90's Toy Biz ruled the aisles with their X-Men toyline of 5" figures. Today we're looking at one of my favorites from back then, Weapon X (AKA: 4th Edition Wolverine)
Continuing our Wolverine Celebration, we're looking at a sort of What If? styled toy. Diamond Select Toys answers the question: What if Mego had made a World's Greatest Super Heroes figure of Wolverine?
Since we are celebrating Wolverine, all of the Random Toys this month will have be Wolverine related. Starting us off is one of my favorite toys from my childhood, The X-Men Pocket Comic Danger Room playset from Toy Biz!
