Weekend Update

Didn't get alot done this weekend. Not sure why. I went and saw Frankenweenie and it was really good. Amanda says it's not as good as Nightmare Before Christmas....but what could be really??? Went to an estate sale on Saturday in search of junk and stuff for my customs and only came away with some old drawer sets to hold accessories and various things I have accumulated. You can never have too many drawers or containers for crap....keeping it all sorted is the issue. I can't tell you how many times I knew I had something but couldn't find it. Oh...I think it's probably football that has been hindering my work. Sat and Sun it never stops and I love it. Other than the fact that my Bills are embarrassing. And here I am asking for a new Bills jersey for my birthday....I'm a die hard fan. I'd have to be, they haven't made the playoffs in 13 years.

If anyone out there collects Lego Mini-Figures I'm working on something pretty cool with them.

Here is the first FINAL pic of my 3" Batman that I just finished. He is part of the Justice League set that I'm making. I did a Booster Gold and Blue Beetle last year and this is 1 of 3 of the most recent additions. Next up is Flash, Ice and Fire.

It was pretty difficult to get the ears to be symmetrical and despite it looking like they're not in the pic they are. I love his little cape too...I think it makes a great silhouette.


  1. Wow, that batman is pretty rad, Jared

    3''? It's a custom dunny? I hope that could be my first custom form you (if it's not a commission)

    1. What's up Gil! Glad you like him, he is a 3", but he is a commission. I do not often make work that is for NOT a commission. I'll do a few shows a year and I typically do a series once a year but I've been so busy in 2012 that I have yet to make my 2012 series which will prob not happen. I'd have to best my Mutations series and that was pretty good in my opinion. Hit me up if you wanna talk commission. I do have a very old figure that I made that is Batman with a twist. Check this pic.. http://imageshack.us/a/img4/8563/337120854462aa21b6aaz.jpg It is an 8" figure and would need a little repair but it is one of my oldest remaining customs. If you're interested we could work something out. email me.
