LASH x Real x Head Custom Horror Set!!!

2222709760_c2bca30b7d 400x634

RealxHead freak, artist and Customs Guru, LASH does it again with this entire RealxHead "Horror" Custom set. LASH was selling it for a very reasonable $600 and it was snatched up by hungry collectors in the first few minutes. A bargain at $150 per figure for custom RxH by LASH.

Kaiju-Taro SOLID Custom RealxHead Chaos

2217424005_2edb924697_o 400x533

I do believe that this custom RealxHead Chaos from Hedorah666 is the first publicized custom from the brilliant Kaiju-Taro SOLID brand. A customizer's dream, KT SOLID gathers blank white figures from the best Japanese manufacturers including RealxHead, Gargamel, Rumble Monsters and Sunguts and sells them at a discount with no silly frills like bags and headers so customizers can go wild. It is no mistake that Kaiju-Taro is the only game in town to get our favorite paint designed specifically for vinyl: V-Color. I still shake my head at Taro's business acumen. SOLID indeed!!!

But this Chaos is what really gets me excited! I love the colorway and the subtle use of Silver. I'd love to see more customs from Hedorah666!!! Awesome!!!!

You guys prolly have seen this already, but Play Imaginative has teamed up with Touma to create this monstrosity of a 18" Skuttle!!! This thing is huge! I like it, but not crazy about the colorway....Going big must be the new trend. Look for it at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Better bring an extra suitcase...

While he was at it, he thought he would mummify a Secret Base Mad Balls figure as well. The two headed Mad Balls never looked so cool....

Check out a few more pics of Martin Ontiveros new Ojo Rojo toy being released at his Rock and Roll Fantasy show at Bwana Spoons Grass Hut Corp on February 1st. Looks like the toy gods have listened and he will be Clear!!!! I'm sure there will be some custom painted ones which will rock and the above picture shows some kind of stuff inside. Clear toys with stuff inside always kick ass. Kiyoka from Gargamel killed it on this sculp. although I wouldn't mind the original mini Ojo Rojo be released in another 10 different colorways!!

LASH x Real x Head Customs Ryusei "Galaga" Ninja!!!


2224045133_d06ef3bfc0 400x579

LASH busts out with the homage to the serious old skool coin-op, "GALAGA"!! If I had a nickel for every quarter that I pumped into this machine at the local 7-11.....lemme tell you. One of my all-time favorite video games. Based on a RealxHead Ryusei Ninja, this custom is galatic!


LASH does this classic vid justice rocking not only the V-Color, but also the House of Kolor paints! Check out that flake? Damn...cosmic, like i'm playing the game all possum-like. Waiting to get captured so I can blast your insect ass double-fisted space ship style.

toybot studios Custom Real x Head Chaos!!!

IMG_1760 400x599

These are my first two custom RealxHead Chaos figures. I tried the "Fighting Spirit" technique of rubbing off the paint to reveal the contrasting vinyl underneath, but leaving paint in all the nooks and crannies. While not perfect, I do like how this first one turned out. The base is the Kaiju-Taro Black pearl Chaos.

This next guy, I struggled a bit...It's based on the solid Red Chaos from one of the festivals last year. I got it from Super7. When I first painted it with metallic light and royal blue, he looked a lot like Ultraman. I'm still not crazy about it. I may have to send him to an acetone bath and have a do-over.
