Granny Goodness
What can be said about the talent that is Glassman that hasn’t already been said, especially by me? The man’s talent knows no bounds. His recent Granny Goodness sculpt is proof of that. The following photos are my finished and painted rendition of Glassman’s sculpt. Thanks for sharing, Glassman! I (read more...)
Gorilla Grodd (Psychic Helmet)
Finally, Mattel released a Gorilla Grodd figure! Naturally, I had to create a special “variant” edition of Grodd in his psychic power-enhancing helmet. I simply Dremeled down Grodd’s existing hair and sculpted the helmet details around his now bald dome. Created Winter 2008 (read more...)
Giganta (Normal, Pink Dress)
I suppose if it weren’t for SDCC exclusives, we’d never see some characters immortalized in plastic. That’s the excuse, er, I mean, the reasoning the manufacturers give us. So I guess we’re lucky to have Giganta at all. Of course, to get her made, they cut some corners. That’s okay. (read more...)
Giganta (Normal, Yellow Dress)
Once my 10″ Giganta figure was finished, I knew I wanted to make a “normal” sized version, too. Of course, a normal sized Giganta is still taller than everyone else. That meant all the usual female base figures were unsuitable. True, there are many figures in larger scales that might (read more...)

Giganta (Giant, Pink Dress)
Like so many other customizers, I knew as soon as I saw the 10″ Wonder Woman figure she’d make a great base for a Giganta custom. Unlike the aforementioned artisans, my Giganta custom was started, but then took over a year to finish. Seems I kept getting sidetracked! Obviously, the (read more...)
Galatea
I am loving the current story arcs in Justice League Unlimited. The whole “conspiracy” thing is so much fun to watch. Poor Galatea here is a sad victim of that conspiracy. The base is a Mattel Wonder Woman (the first version), which I chose for the heels. As Tea is (read more...)
Firefly (TNBA)
Slowly but surely, I’m making my way down the list of all the major players in the world of animated Gotham. Firefly’s been on the list for a really long time, but I never could get “fired” up about him. Oddly, once I started him, I really began to enjoy (read more...)
Felix Faust
Felix Faust was never high on my list of customizing priorities. Not until the Lex Luthor figure from the “Superman:Doomsday” line was released. When I realized I had the perfect head and arms for Felix, it was all I could do to not work on Felix. (Translation: It took me (read more...)
Firefly (JLU)
Stew worked up most of the head and torso, while I concentrated on the rest. The head and backpack are made from Mattel’s parts, though the backpack was modified to fit the straps, and the head now features the “button” in the left side that Mattel forgot. Stew extended the (read more...)
