GI Joe Wild Bill

Like a lot of my figures, this just sorta came to me while messing around with parts and thinking to myself how crappy I always thought previous versions of Wild Bill from the factory are and how easy it would be to correct that with a few parts changes. I am very pleased with how this one turned out, and now if only he had a chopper to fly around!

Marvel Universe Planet Hulk

Given multiple shades of testors MM acryls to bring out all the details of the mold and a re-paint of the armor and weapons this is my rendition of Planet Hulk. The one thing I felt was really annoying with the figure was that he couldn't properly hold his weapons, so I fixed that. I really like this figure a lot and am impressed lately with the Marvel Universe series.

Transformers Straxus

I gave this guy a total make over using enamels and I really enjoyed all the detail and time it took to paint! After all, the painting is my favorite part of any project. Instead of his usual blue color scheme, I went with black and copper and I am very pleased with how the colors turned out. I have always wanted to be able to display Transformers characters with their vehicle modes instead of having to choose which I wanted at the time. So, I made two Straxus figures, and have one in his alt mode to match the bot!
