New Custom Tuesday – 7/12/11

Shredder - Discogod

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 Discogod’s Shredder!

Shredder - Discogod

I love the NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures and I consider the un-produced Shredder and Hand Ninja figures from that line to be one of the great ‘tragedies’ of un-produced action figure goodness (Legendary Comic Book Heroes series 3 is another).  It looks to me like Discogod feels the same, because he’s done an amazing job creating a custom in the style of that un-produced Shredder figure.

He did an original sculpt of the chest and the mask that’s so great it almost looks like a cast from those NECA prototypes.  The sculpting and paint is so factory smooth and flawless looking.


Shredder and NECA TMNT Leonardo - Discogod

He looks amazing with the NECA Turtles, it’s bittersweet.  I mean, it’s great to admire this custom, but man we all could have had this awesomeness if only NECA had been able to produce these figures!  GAAAAAH!
