New Custom Tuesday – 2/19/08

It’s time for another edition of New Custom Tuesday!   New Custom Tuesday is a weekly, creator submitted list of the latest custom action figures. This list provides a convenient way to check out all the latest custom creations posted in the galleries without having to search each individual thread.

For this week’s customs, read on!

I’m going to do this slightly different this week.  I received three submissions this time around and they all had something in common.  They are great customs of characters or properties we don’t see a lot here at the fwoosh custom galleries.  So let’s take a closer look at some of the great customs that are adding some diversity to our custom galleries:

First up is MsBigPileofDust’s Buffy/Faith swapping bodies scene:

I’m a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sasha’s customs, so it’s always a treat for me to see that she has updated her custom thread with one of her intricate creations.  Even the customizer who is not a fan of Buffy can get a lot from checking out Sasha’s thread.  She provides many instructive WIP photos and recipes and explains in detail how she created her latest work.  This Buffy/Faith scene is no exception.  I especially like the little bit of expression she has added to Faith’s headsculpt with just paint application.

Check out more pics of this scene and the rest of Sasha’s amazing customs here:

Next we have jsebold’s episode specific "Same Time Same Place" Buffy:

I was impressed with the paintwork jsebold used to convey the sheer quality of Buffy’s shirt on this custom.  Check out more Buffy and Smallville customs on jsebold’s thread here:

Last and certainly not least is Shazam37’s Animated Style Captain Marvel:

I love the smooth professional finish on this figure.  The raised details on the the shirt and the cape are perfect.  Shazam37 has a couple pages of really nice animated style customs (including animated style Marvel Universe characters!) that you can find here:

Thanks for looking, and check back in a week for the next edition of New Custom Tuesday!  If you are interested in submitting your customs for inclusion in an upcoming New Custom Tuesday, check out this thread on the Fwoosh forums:
