    I am actually in doubt if I should keep the plastic cape or not. A cloth cape from a more current Darth Vader figure could work as well and be more in tune with the other Palisades figures... The effect on the cuffs is made with the grip of the handle of my hobby knife, which has that knurled structure. I sculpted the cuffs first, then I 'rolled' the structure onto it.

    Thanks!! Very cool to have your blessing. After all, it is your recipe I stole/borrowed. As said, ever since I first saw your custom I wanted to have one myself. My next customs will be all originals!!


    Thanks!!! And no, the play set is the original set by Palisades. But posed my custom in that set on my toy shelf. That is where Dearth Nadir belongs.

    I don't remember if I posted these ages ago or not, but I did do a pirate custom.
    while not from POTC or from MTI, I wanted to do a display that used the MTI figures that was more along the line of "if the Muppet Show was on now and Johnny Depp was a guest, this would be a skit they did"...Though I do think they could of used Uncle Deadly as the blind pirate or one of the crew if he wasn't completely forgotten about.
    anyway...

    No sweat... many's the time I think up a brilliant Muppet custom, only to realize I'm subconsciously copying something Quinn did years before!

    I've been away for a while and although the Piggy I am making is still not finished, I started another project right after I saw the amazing Muppet art that Ken Haeser posted online a while ago. So, inspired by his sketch here's Animal as Wolverine:

    Animal started out as a Palisades World Tour animal and still has all of his articulation. I'm thinking about remaking the box he came in as well, to reflect the character he now is. Sadly, with the claws attached he does not fit inside it anymore...

    Hope you all like! I just love how he came out!

    Thanks! You are the master customizer here. Feels good that you like it :news:
    The hair was actually the most difficult part. It had to look as if it was styled like this, yet on the original figure it was going in exactly the opposite direction. So there had to be quite some cutting and pasting. After that I could not get the colors to match up, so I decided to go for a more 'red' face instead of the more purple of the original figure. As said, I love how he came out. Probably my favorite Muppets custom thus far (but I only made three and a half...)
