Stephen (Steph) Curry custom one-sixth scale head

Here’s a one-sixth scale head based on basketball superstar Steph Curry Sean’s sculpting for a personal project.

 

Custom Mego-sized Doc Savage figure

Tim’s been working on this custom Doc Savage figure for a while now and finished it up this week. The figure has a Mego body, a head started off as a Superman scale resin cast Tim found online that he customized to give it a classic Doc look. The pants are scratch created by Tim and hand sewn.

Robin the Boy Wonder custom action figure by Tim

Tim had some time off over the Christmas break and put together a figure of Robin the Boy Wonder from the 1966 Batman TV series. The head is our Boy Wonder sculpt by Sean and the costume is bespoke by Tim. You can also see some of Tim’s other creations in this photo; there’s Dick Grayson on the left and a leaning Bruce Wayne on the right.

Flash sculpture update

Here’s Sean’s sculpture of the Flash cast and on a prototype base he’s working on. I think Sean’s really captured a cool Art Deco look with the base!

New Flash sculpture in the works

The last few weeks Sean’s been working on a new sculpture for the character of the Flash. The photo here is of his sculpt cut apart so we can start making molds of all the pieces.

Batman 1989 life-sized resin cast

A few months ago Bert picked up a life-sized resin cast of Michael Keaton in his Batman costume from 1989 on eBay. The cast was really rough Bert asked Tim if he could clean it up so that I could paint it. Bert’s plan was to spray paint the cast bronze so that it would look like a metal statue. Well, apparently that wasn’t good enough for Tim and Sean, so this Christmas they surprised Bert with the bust not only cleaned up but also fully painted AND they bought a mannequin body and cut it down so that the bust would have a stable base to sit on AND ALSO bought material and added a cape too.

The bust is super-cool, life-like and a bit scary but in a good ,”I hope it keeps the burglars away” kind’a way!

New casting process

We’ve begun casting our resin items a bit differently lately. Our process has always been that we degas the resin in a vacuum degasser then pour into our molds. But now once the resin is in the mold we’re placing them into a pressure pot and pressure casting them at 50PSI until the resin fully cures. So far the results have been amazing. Casts that used to have a few air bubbles (imperfections) here and there before now have nearly no blemishes. And what before would have taken us a lot of time to correct before shipping to our customers, because we only ship out items that we’d like to receive ourselves, now takes just a few minutes to clean and box up.

Now if only we could make our air compressor quieter since the neighbors are starting to complain! 😉

Punisher 12″ figures

Using a head Sean developed for a Parker figure a while back, Tim created three different classic Punisher figures for fun. Other than the heads, these figures use off-the-shelf bodies and accessories with the Punisher chest symbol being the only other custom element on them.

Classic Punisher 12″ figure

Last weekend using some spare parts and a Dragon NEO 3 body, Tim put together an amazing Punisher figure in his classic black and white look. The Punisher’s head on this figure is the same one Sean created for a figure based on Darwyn Cooke’s Parker a few years back.

Doc Savage figures

The last few weeks Tim’s been working on creating a set of Doc Savage and the Fabulous Five figures for a project. Each stands about 2″ tall and is sculpted in Sculpey. Once he’s finished with all of the figures they’ll be cast in resin.
