Chinese_Chicken's customs and such [19/06/12]
just thought i'd share with yall some of my works. they're all playmobil bases, re-imagined into my own slightly twisted characters. Entitled "a curious panorama of corporate utopia", a bunch of these were done up for a local arts show back in jan.
sculpted with epoxy putty and painted with acrylics, crits are welcome. more pics are on my site, so do check'em out.

this 1 was based on Ashley Wood's World War Robot, Nom de Plume. really liked the post-apocalyptic vibe so i decided to do him up playmobil style

I love these. I wish the paint was just a little less shiny, or maybe its just the lighting when you take the photo. Tis a minor thing, because I think these are just great...
If you don't mind, I would like to share the link to this thread on a toy collecting forum I frequent... www.toymania.com. There are some Playmobil fans over there that will get a real kick out of this.

Oh yeah, Mr. Stinkhead (of MillionDollarPlayboy.com, I think) is a huge fan and posts tons of reviews for Playmobil on toymania.com which always go over really well.
Are you famillar with Xevoz? Short-lived Hasbro building action figure line from 2004 that released about 30 figures before it was cancelled. Loosely based on Stikfas, but larger and better made. Stylization generic in a sort of Playmobil way with the same plastic quality, but better articulated and fully interchangable ball and socket joints. If you don't have any, I think you'd really love them both for play factor and customizablity. Xevoz was sort of like the best of Playmobil combined with the best of Legos in a real action figure line that was better than Bionicle (IMHO). So sad that the line died, but the marketing was horrible. Really deserved to be a multi-decade, transgenerational toy line like Playmobil and Lego too.
But thanks for posting these really great figures.

I am so tired of seeing people scribble on a MUNNY and call it a custom figure.
Thanks for sharing.

i've heard abt Xevoz but i nvr really got around to collecting the line. i did appreciate the stylized look they had and i liked the fact that each 1 was uniquely sculpted but remained generic in its form. i collected Stikfas tho. the mecha robot is 1 of my favourites!

just a quick throw up here
was looking through my playmo fodder and came across this fella.
a bit of epoxy and acrylics and this is what i came up with.
a little rough on the edges (man its hard to paint at this size!) although i think it blends in well with the rest of my work
this of course, was inspired by frank kozik.
