    Chinese_Chicken's customs and such [19/06/12]

    heylo people,

    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.

    cheers

    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.

    thanks for the kind words, appreciate it! i do agree that the figures turned out a little shiny. i usually use a matte sealant after painting and might have overdone it on these guys.

    i frequent toymania every now and again although i wasn't aware there was a playmobil fan base. i don't mind at all; feel free to post my stuff there!

    best,

    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.

    >sigh<

    But thanks for posting these really great figures.

    GREAT WORK.

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

    Thanks for sharing.

    thnx for the comments fellas

    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.

    Jenny Pinkerton

    it's been a while, here's my latest work - Jenny Pinkerton of the SprayCan Militia. epoxy sculpt, random parts and acrylic paints on a playmobil stock body.

    Excellent work

    But where is that texture coming from?

    If you're airbushing the basecoat it might be worth thinning you paint a little?

    thanks for the comment

    the texture comes from drybrushing. it does give the pieces a slightly rougher finish and i will perhaps futher thin down the paint next time round.

    cheers
