Tyke's Customs

 

Tyke can be contacted at [email protected]

 

"Mommy"

 

I used JL Wonder Woman, sculpted dress and

shoulder harness, and the red strap in front is cut

from a Superman cape. The hair/headpiece is sculpted,

too.

 

"Mommy and Daddy"

 

Jor-El comes from Casimir's recipe, except I used a scrap Batman body.

 

"They Call Me Bruce."

 

Old school Wayne is exact

recipe from Casimir. The older Wayne is holding a Batarang.

"Batman Adventures"

 

In non-celebration of DC Comic's stupid idea of cancelling one of the most creative comics out there, I decided to pay homage to Timm, Dini, Burchett, Slott, Templeton (ALL OF THEM) and begin a line of figures based on the designs of one of the last remnants of the Timm universe. In scale with the Hasbro line (and all of my customs, at that), this is a Detective Batman body and face, but the back of the head/ears is from a MOTP Batman figure.

 

"Iced Over Joke"

 

 Hasbro Joker old school tweaked a bit (new eyes and added Mattel hands). The card was detailed. Some wacky colored Mr. Freeze repainted and has a tank added to his back, inspired by Casimir's recipe. Even though it looks nothing like Casimir's. But in a drukard's eye, it's better than Casimir's.

 

"Professor of the Year"

 

Old Hasbro Scarecrow's arms were cut, sculpted, repositioned, etc. His eyes were filled and painted along with teeth. Love this one.

 

"Lovebirds"

Springer looked lonely in my collection, so, like the friend from hell, I found him a date at Wal-Mart. It's the "Energon" Arcee, and
I scrapped the motorcycle wheels and headlight, filled
in the chest, glued Batman missles on her back, and repainted her completely. What it could've been in the 80's.
 

"More than Meets the Eye":

 Since the
passing of Optimus, Arcee's been quite
available...every Autobot wants a night with Arcee!
 

UNICRON

Since he's on clearance at targets for $20,
why not open one and change the ARMADA/ENERGON
paint-scheme to the VINTAGE/MOVIE one? Simple repaint requiring orange spray paint and the rest acrylics. Oh, and the eyes STILL light up around the green!
Does he still transform? Sure, but I don't have 30-60
minutes to figure out how. I've never transformed the
guy.
