The Punisher 12″ Custom Figure Frank Castle

Here’s a custom figure of Frank Castle aka The Punisher from the superb PUNISHER MAX comic series. I wanted to emulate artist Goran Parlov’s highly-detailed “cartoony yet serious” art style. Parlov also gave The Punisher a stripped down, hulking and weather beaten look. It’s a nice contrast to The Punisher’s usual look where he’s loaded … Continue reading The Punisher 12″ Custom Figure Frank Castle

George Clooney’s first major Hollywood film was also one of his best: 1996’s From Dusk Till Dawn co-starring Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodrigues (Desperado, Sin City).   I’ve wanted a 1:6 scale action figure from it ever since I saw it – over 15 years ago!  My skills and the availability of civvie parts … Continue reading From Dusk Til Dawn Seth Gecko (George Clooney) 12″ Custom Action Figure 1:6 Scale

12″ Head Sculpt Repaints – Quantum of Solace 007 Daniel Craig & Blood Diamond DiCaprio

Finally found some time to work on figures. I wanted to practice my blonde hair painting technique as I find that hair colour very hard to capture. Both of these happen to be Feng headsculpts released commercially with terrible paint jobs. I stripped the paint off and repainted with Liquitex acrylics (truly loads better than … Continue reading 12″ Head Sculpt Repaints – Quantum of Solace 007 Daniel Craig & Blood Diamond DiCaprio

Bad Boys 2 Will Smith & Martin Lawrence Custom 12″ Action Figures

I kind of love the 2003 film, Bad Boys 2. Director Michael Bay (Transformers) was able to secure a $130 million budget and Will Smith – the biggest movie star on the planet at the time – to make a foul, outrageous, and wildly un-PC videogame come to life.  Bay has gone on record saying … Continue reading Bad Boys 2 Will Smith & Martin Lawrence Custom 12″ Action Figures

Hard Boiled Chow Yun-Fat 12″ Custom Action Figure 1/6th Scale

John Woo’s “Hard Boiled” is one of my favourite flicks ever. The gunplay is insanely over-the-top stuff and still hasn’t been topped despite countless imitators from around the world. Just the INTRO action scene, a shootout in a Hong Kong teahouse, is better than the climaxes of most other action movies. So, here is a … Continue reading Hard Boiled Chow Yun-Fat 12″ Custom Action Figure 1/6th Scale
