It's amazing what you can do with Photoshop and sculpture. I used an old head sculpt of a scary looking character I made up, a piece of black cloth, and some Photoshop tweakage and - whalla!!!
instant Darth Devilicious - a downright nasty mean sith type character. Wanna fight him???

I call this custom - "Barefoot Killer"

I was dying to modify this Huck Gee Skullhead I sculpted up for Kid Robot. The only art they gave me was 3/4 shot of this skull character's head. I had to wing that bad boy with no rotation art. My custom version is a late night hitman...late night - because he would stand out like a sore thumb in daylight with that big a$$ head. Did the wings, minisword skull handle, hands and all the different shoes too (on the other 5 versions of the actual figures). The body is a generic 12 inch action figure body, the bright white was a nice touch. Huck Gee is a wicked artist...and his custom Skullheads are no joke!!! Look him up.

One of my latest endeavors...making sculpts for vinyl toys is a lot of work. Well - a lot of sanding, LOL. The surface treatment has to be almost flawless for the rotomolding production process overseas. The funny thing is you do the best you possibly can and finally get a copy of the toy and see a few flaws that the factory made...that sh*t makes me nuts.

Kaching Brands was gracious enough to give me a sculpting credit on the back of the box. A lot of companies still don't do that. Here's a shot of the actual prototype at Toy Fair (Javitts Center NYC) earlier this year at the Toy Tokyo booth:

Andrew Scribner did a really good job on the paintup for me. And a shout out goes to Nelson and Manny over at Storybox Ink ( for the package design work. Those guys are no joke.
