Mercury Art Studios - 6-24-11 NEW CUSTOMS pg 9

Hey guys!!

My name is Mike M. i am 27 yrs old and have been a huge action figure fan for as long as i can remember.

also! i'm a huge fan of yakface! have been for years checking out several customizers, the news!! the updates! the upcoming action figures and pretty much anything related to THE WARS!!!

I have been a star wars fan since my mother put a YODA mask on my face when i was like 1 years old hehe...Over the years learning about collecting, trading and selling action figures i decided to customize my own! this started around or just before the release of attack of the clones, not only customizing star wars figures but also marvel and gi joes too name a few.

I later discovered it was a popular underground-art form which i could not get enough of...later i would sell alot of these figures on ebay to make enough dough to continue my personal collection of ongoing action figures and maybe one day leave my kids a good inheretance lol!! (granted if dont decided to be buried with all of it so kids be good to your parents)

so without further boring stories here it is my very first post on yakface!!! several of my star wars customs of the past few months will be added i will continue to add more as i can.

to yakface i am not advertising or spamming!! please check out my myspace page add me as a friend!! btw? btw yakface.com you guys are on facebook why not myspace? lol!!

myspace.com/mercury_art_studios

thank you for your time guys and i will continue posting as much as i can hope you enjoy!!

These next customs are not star wars related here is my original IRONMAN IN HI-TECH SUIT i made this one about a year ago this is part of my personal stash being auctioned off this week im a huge iron man and dark knight fan so i decided to combine these 2 and this is what i got

next is DAREDEVIL another one of my favorite characters

Besides being a fan of comics i absolutely love customizing stuff from the 80's like thundercats and masters of the universe recently i created a Hordak action figure inspired by a friend of mine,.however i decided to take mine to a whole new level with extreme detail and a unique look that would say "that's mike's work!!"

I AM ALSO WORKING ON MY SECOND VERSION OF THIS GUY WHICH WILL BE MORE ORIENTED TOWARDS THE CARTOON SO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR HIM NEXT MONTH.

Keep the comments flowing i hope this weeks update was good for you guys take care!!

========================================================================================================

Alright OCTOBER is a seriously insane month every year as far as customizing goes for me, i get all the GORE fans and comic book fans ask me for insane stuff but between commissions and such it is seriously hard to keep up with everything, updating myspace page, forums, building web-page, customizing,answering e-mails, parenting (i am a new DAD well at leats 10 months ago and she is the best thing in my life) anyway so here is the last month of custom creations ranging from zombies, Gi joe characters based on movies, video games, star wars sith lords based on books and much more.

I hope you will all enjoy these customs i am really looking forward to hearing more comments from everyone don't be shy.

ALSO I AM WORKING ON THE SECRET SANTA CUSTOM FOR X-MAS I AM AMAZED I DONT SEE ALOT OF YOU CUSTOMIZERS CHIMING IN THERE SO COME ON PEEPS LOOK FORWARD TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS.

until the next update

Welcome Mike! Thanks for joining up. As you know Yakface is a premier community for customizers on the web so please make yourself at home keep those projects coming.

First, your SITH LORD from SW:OTR is freaking fantastic. The Joe figures work surprisingly well for these early era Sith lord you seemed to have chosen the perfect parts for your creation.

Your version of Darth Krayt is in a word awesome due to it's uniqueness and overall craftsmanship. I think the armor look very good. Maybe you should give a shot at a full consumed version of Krayt :lol: If I had one suggestion it would be to use a head sculpt that looked a little "older" has I think this head is a bit too youthful. A minor quibble.

The female version, while totally fan-fic, looks right at home and I could easily seen a whole group of Sith acolytes created in this fashion as faithful followers for Lord Krayt.

Wow, great stuff! Darth Krayt looks fantastic, and Zannah and Cognus are gorgeous.The dark side has never been so appealing to me. :twisted: And the Deckard is great. I can't believe no one makes a knock-off of his pistol somewhere.

Plus, I've got a use for my Po Nudo body now: a Roan Fel of my own. :)

Thank you for the suggestions mate!

I actually sold this version of krayt just before last x-mas all the proceeds which was like 500dls went to giving toys in a biker toy run which i know made alot of kids happy for the holidays.

however i am currently working on another version for myself so i can put him side by side with hasbros and i promise i will give him an older head :P

sith acolytes huh? dude you stirred enough ideas to keep me busy for a year LOL!!

I'm glad you liked my customs and i promise to keep posting more...I DUNNO WHY I DIDN'T ALOT SOONER. i have had many customers and friends begging me to post in several forums and i'm glad i did.

thank you for the warm welcome and hope to keep hearing from you.

Great to see that you finally found your way to yakface.
Surely, you have already noticed that the members of the community are very
nice and helpful people.

You are definitely going to feel good anytime you check the forums.

Really, really nice.

Krayt is my favourite as well and I am already anxious to seeing mine, when he arrived with his friends :wink:

Welcome to Yakface! WOW! These are some awesome customs. Very unique and some characters you don't see so often. They are all very well done and I hope to see more from you.
