Hey bro, do you by chance have any other pics of your vampire hunter head (Blade) I am having a hard time seeing it on the site. Definitely interested in this if its Snipes, especially since his mouth is closed. Could finally make a Simon Phoenix custom!!!

It's an Agent J head w/ resculpted front of his hair. Here's one all painted up:

Here's a couple of things I'm working on:

MU Cable upgrades:
ML:

MU:


I'm planning on redesigning his belt, and a set of straps going from belt to shoulder pads.

MU Agent Venom
Normal

Venomous


I have ALLOT of sculpting to do on this, but I think it's heading in the right direction.

That shoulder pad thing you made for MU Cable would work quite well on converting a MU Hercules into a Road Pig...do you have a Herc to test that pad on?...I'd love to see a pic of that...

You mean like this?:


I have a Road Pig looking head that I was sent a while back, but it's probably way too small for the Herc body.

Guys the only thing is I need to replace the ammo on his shoulder it curled due to the shrinking process. Though once the shrink copy is done they might be positioned right. I just kind of jumped the gun, and made a mold while the right pad was still shrinking to see how it'd look.

Vortious,

Would you ever cast Star Wars weapons?

I'm looking for multiples of the blaster that came with the Rebel Fleet Trooper:
http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/TVC/Basic/VC52Fleet/TVC-1688.jpg

I'd buy multiples of Vintage Carded Bespin Luke and Vintage Carded Bespin Han's blaster, too.

Casted in black, obviously.
I've purposely stayed away from Star Wars stuff for the most parts since Lucas is well known for having his people scouring the net for people copying his stuff, but now that Disney has the license, and they haven't come after me about my Marvel stuff I might do a few SW items here, and there.

Had a little problem w/ the Ant Man helmets one of my customers said that his got stuck on the head, and the antennas broke off when he was trying to get it off. So I took it down for now, and I spent the last 1/2 hour redesigning it. I hollowed it out a little more, and I replaced the antennas w/ the ends of tooth picks, and then used my Z-blade tip to put a little hole in the balls for the ends, and glued them on the tips, then of course glued those on the helmet. It still fits snug enough as to not wobble all over the place, but it comes off much easier.

If you got yours, and you're not having any problems with it great, but if you had this happen let me know, and I'll take care of replacing it w/ one of the new helmets.

All orders through WE 8-3-13 aside from a couple who I emailed have been sent out.

Also I'll be closing my store down for a little while this evening. I'm not exactly sure how long, but it'll be at least a week or so.

Still working on the Cable set up. I have a mold of the modded regular shoulder pads w/ a better ammo belt:



Then I modded the old copy to be an added shoulder pad for the left side that has a sliding BFG:




I just need this BFG (which I just ordered from ebay for about $12 shipped) for his right hand to be able to mimic the version of Cable from Wolvie#85



I know it's not exact, but it's close enough.

Ok I just reopened after adding 23 new items including 3 different "Satellite" kits, and even chairs that'll actually fit your figures better.



And for those who are just looking to upgrade their current Cable figure

Thanks guys. I wasn't planning on making the kit available for the official release figures, but I tried the shoulder pads over the old Cable figure just to see if they'd work, and figured that some people might just want to do that. Though I agree that the Herc buck definitely looks better as Cable than the official one does.

Just so you guys know I did get that F14 HUD, and the shoulder pads (by themselves since some had requested them for other characters) in the store too.

I'm getting ready to head out to the post office right now with all of the orders for WE 8-10, and 8-17. For those of you wondering why those 2 weeks haven't shipped yet here's a pic of the volume of orders for those 2 weeks:


Also I was wondering if you guys could do me a favor. If you're going to a convention, or you happen to know a few people around your area who customize could you print up a sheet or 2 of these, and hand them out?

So as I was filling orders today, er well yesterday I was trying out some ideas, and though the red is a little too dark I think these look like they'd work well for replacement heads, and hands.

I'll be adding a head, and hand set, and just the head to my store probably Sunday night, because I have a bunch of molds in right now, and more planned for tomorrow night.

Well 2 hours until the beginning of the last week before I shut down for the month of October. Don't forget after midnight Saturday the 28th I'll be closed until Sunday November 3rd. Now I'll still try to help out when I can, but for the most part the sales side of things will be closed for R&D work.

I thought I posted this already, but i see it missing...

Anyway, that western trench, any good arm suggestions?
As of right now no, but I do have the left arm from the Hell boy figure, and the guy who sent me the parts showed me a custom movie style Doc Ock he made using 2 left arms, and it didn't look half bad. I'll try that out, but I'll probably end up copying Wrecker upper arms, and then resculpting the lower arms from a Wrecking Crew style body. Now if you mean Joe arms then I'd try the ones from the Arctic Destro, or the Snow Viper.
