The Nanny & Orphan Maker

Now for my new scratch build! I wanted to do something different again... Much like my Phoenix Force custom I wanted a new scratch build to share a base... So this is my 11th scratch project: The Nanny and Orphan Maker.

Nanny & Orphan MakerSide

Where ever you see Nanny in the MU Orphan Maker isn't too far behind so a base share was the natural choice.

Nanny is 100% scratch built with this begin my first attempt at hands and fingers. Orphan Maker was made from the base of DC's Black Adam.

My next blog post might not be until September... After Mary Marvel. But I'm not sure yet. If it is then expect a BIG update which will also include the MMO of Blood Brother.

To Infinity and Beyonder!

It's that time again when yet another DC figurine falls to my files, clay and paint techniques. This time is was the turn of Guy Gardener. I found this one quite difficult to find a Marvel replacement Especially with Guy Gardeners gimpy smile! .... So welcome The Beyonder!!!

The BeyonderSide view

For me The Beyonder is a risky character to make. As I want an MU collection full of figurines that Eaglemoss won't make and I think The Beyonder is one guy who will one day be in this collection... I mean if we get more and more extensions.

Now a lot of you have noticed that my commission have been closed for sometime now and this is because I'm getting asked to do more fragile and challenging figurines. Which I love doing but the postman does not! Quite a few of my customs sent out to good friends and customers of mine have received their prized custom piece damaged... It's very disheartening when this happens! I package them so well even I don't know how they arrive damaged. So for the time being you can still send me your requests but I'll have to have a think about if and what figurines I make now on as customer pieces.

Damaged face...

[Agent Orange and Mimic both recieved alot of damage]

Luckly I fixed Mimic

Next time look out for the MMO of Blood Brother and also I might show you my latest scratch build... This one is one of my faves... She's quality! Sneak peak below...

Bring me the Soul Drinker...

My next scratch build started life as a head base for Fing Fang Foom. But I realised that this mould looked like a creature I first saw in the 90's X-Men Animated series: The Soul Drinker.

He begins!

For the animated series The Soul Drinker was re-named the Spirit Drinker. So for this scratch build I took aspects from both incarnations making my own Soul Drinker. He's very random looking but I'm very happy with how he has turned out.

Fing Fang Foom is my next scratch project - But I'm taking my time with him. So expect some more scratch builds inbetween.Whether I do Fing Fang Foom in his original look or his more modern black look I'm not decided yet. But photos will be up in the not too distant future. Also thanks to all the challengers on Marvel vs. Capcom 2..... Luckly I wasn't beaten so I didn't have to make any customs haha!

Move over Batgirl... I'm Nosferata!!!

It's been along time since I last did a female MMO. And in true form I'm still taking on every figurine in the DC range. This week was Batgirl! Only one Marvel heroine stands out for me and that was Nosferata: The She Bat!


Also this week I got around to finishing the fantasy heroine team thought up by a top follower and Friend of this blog: Marvelbeast. In the past I have made The English Rose & African Violet for his team but now the final member can join the ranks... This is The Japanese Lilly.

As you can see from the poster below all 3 of Marvelbeasts heroines could easy pass as the deal in the superhero world.

That's it! Next time be sure to see the fate of Guy Gardener and also keep a look out for my 10th scratch build which is my most random yet. All coming soon!
