All New Customs/Mash-Ups Thread (v3)

Postby Jeremy Girard » Tue Oct 17, 2017 12:14 pm

Since the first thread of customs is now filled with Photobucket, "image cannot be found" messages and the second one is locked, I figured I'd start a new thread for us to show off some custom work. I'll start with a piece that I have been working on for awhile, mainly because I wanted to find the right pieces to put it all together! Here is my custom Mindflayer!

The head is a custom one I bought off eBay, originally made by Kevin Kosse. That head is really what started this entire custom, since I knew it worked so well as a mindflayer!

For the figure's body, I wanted to recreate the thin look that I always see for mindflayers. For that reason, i opted to go with some bone limbs from a ML Scaphoid figure. The problem was that these parts needed to be painted, something I try to avoid on any parts that need to be moveable because the paint rubs on the joints. I actually tried to dye some ML bones to the color I wanted, but the plastic would not take the dye, so I ended up going with paint and sealing it the best I could.

Most of the images I had seen online of mindflayers show them in long robes, usually with high collars. I looked for a robe like this for awhile and tried a few WWE Undertaker robes, but they all made the figure look too bulky. I ended up going with a soft goods robe from a Star Wars Black Series Kylo Ren figure.

The armor pieces came from a ML Gorthokk. The chest and loin are from a ML Baron Volligar, repainted all black to remove the symbol normally on those parts.

For the figure's accessories, I made a staff out of a Baron Volligar banner pole and the topper is from a Schapoid mace. His pouch piece is from a random Lord of the Rings figure that I had in my fodder box.

I actually unlocked the second one, but it's probably wise to start fresh.

Mindflayer looks great!

I love that custom. Great mix of parts.

I think that a New custom thread is a good thing BTW.

I have no idea what mind flayers are. I assumed he was an evil calimarigician but that head is pretty cool.it looks familiar too. Is this from the same guy that does the Motucheads stuff?

Clearly they're what happens when a Skeletor and a Zoidberg love each other very much.

That mind flayer is one of those perfect customs which makes me wish the Four Horsemen would steal the idea.

I really want to place an order for a few custom heads from that site, but I am worried it is not legit?

I've never bought anything from them but the link is directly from Motucheads' Facebook.
