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!

This week’s featured custom is GrownNerd’s 7th Kingdom Snapping Turtle:

7th Kingdom Snapping Turtle - Grownnerd

GrownNerd + 7th Kingdom + Mutant Turtle = custom bliss.  I dig this figure on a few different levels.  First off, I’m a big fan of the 7th Kingdom property, so it’s always great to see quality customs in this style.

Check the shell!

Secondly, I bought that base figure thinking it would be good for custom, but really could not for the life of me think of what to make from it once I had it.  One of the greatest joys for me as a custom figure fan is to see people solve the problems that stump me.  It’s inspiring and charges my creative battery.


Third, this is just an all around high quality custom.  The sculpting modifications on the  head completely transforms the base figure into a really different look.  The shell is plain beautiful and the paint job on the skin has a really great natural tone.  Click one of the above pics for a link to GN’s thread and 3 other really great 7th Kingdom customs.
