Welp. Looks like my custom thread was lost in the blip. Might be for the better! Time to start over, I guess!

I'd been feeling a little unmotivated lately. Just haven't had the drive to work on customs a whole lot lately. Something pretty cool happened though, and it was like a shot in the arm (I'll post about this event at a later time in an appropriate forum). Here's the result of some much needed motivation!

Daredevil was made on the Klaw body, with black costume Daredevil forearms, both sets of hands, boots, belt, and holster. I made a few sets of billy clubs with plastruct rods. One set has a bendy wire connecting the two. I made a third set (not pictured), with an insanely long wire between the two for wrapping around the figure for dynamic poses! The logo on the chest is a water slide decal and was among my first attempts at using one.

The head was a cast and paint job by @supertomcustoms. I had to dry brush a little of my red on to better match the base body, but i was insanely impressed by his paint job, especially on the flesh part!

Thanks, lefthook!

I do love that boxer style, too. I also thought that if Hasbro makes a butterfly jointed Daredevil, it would be a classic one. This way, my custom figure is protected a little if Hasbro does do that.

I'm really looking forward to doing some action shots with him, as well!

Re: @resilient_customs 2.0 - Daredevil, Loading Dock 2

Well, over on the ol Instagram I got a commission for a loading dock. He asked for something similar to my first one, but different. I changed the layout a little, but kept the same basic formula. There are two alternate garage door pieces, one for a broken through look, one for half open look. It's larger in every direction as well.

Here's the results!

Super jealous of your Dare Devil.
That is the figure Hasbro needs to make.

Don't forget the SDCC exclusives this week while working on Dock v3.

If you think I forgot to take final photos of Loading Dock 3, you'd be right! I was so anxious about having to ship this one that I spent an evening box it up and securing it only to realize I didn't take better pictures. The only thing missing from these images are a few signs I put up though. This was a commission for Seth over at the MCE youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCQFsx ... C0jwkZLxcg).

A few weeks back my buddy on fellow Fwoosher Matchu was doing a raffle on charity to benefit Charity. I won the previous one and knew I wanted to contribute to this one. So I threw together a little brick exterior building. This dio was also en excuse for me to work on my brick scale! I wish I remembered to take a final photo of the other side panel. I let the winner decide how the Door would get finished. Here's what I do have of it though:

My current diorama project has been a bit of a challenge. Working on it, scrapping pieces, and starting them over has been tough. I needed a small break from it so i could work on something and actually finish.

I was messaged by someone on instagram saying that he saved his Christmas money to get a small diorama for his 7” wrestling figures. I couldn't say no. He wanted something that could be a managers office with a wood floor. I’ve done a couple of wood textured pieces before, but this one is by far my favorite. I figured this dio could be built pretty quickly, and a few days later, here we are.

It was nice to work on a dio and complete one for the first time in awhile. I started my day job back up, and finding the balance of work and hobby was getting a little difficult. This dio served as a bit of a reset button for me and I’m feeling invigorated. Back to work on the other stuff now!

At this rate you could build your figures one cool looking city to live in. Great work, my friend!
