I'm a big fan of Drilone. Even before I met him, I thought his custom toys were cool. In fact, one of the only Munnies I own is a custom he did like four years ago. Still have it.
When the opportunity arose, I asked Drilone to customize a set of Toygraph Space Troopers in his trademark weathered military style. Since there were three, the idea was to have them be alternate future United States, Russian and Japan Space Troopers. The results as you can see are stunning. Just look at the details on each figure. The weathering, the paint, the stencils. The rivets in each Trooper look like they belong there. I love the hose on the Japanese Trooper too.
Drilone also goes the distance with his craft. Some guys will do a custom header card or a cardboard box, but Alex goes all the way. He crafted a wooden box from scratch, made stencils and painted it to look just like a WWII Ammo Case. He even had dog tags made. wow, what a great set. Thanks Alex...!

Spied this pretty cool looking set on www.figures.com. It's the Advanced Tactical Armor from the Iron Man 2 Concept Series K-Mart Exclusive. I'm digging the Captain American riff as well as the Halo Master Chief theme going on. Available at your local K-Mart or online K-Mart soon...!
Personally, the only one that really works is the Sony PS3. It is quite beautiful any way you look at it. Sadly, not the same can be said about the Nintendo Super NES (no matter how much time I lovingly spent with mine) or the Nintendo DS.
The various designs of video game consoles and handhelds have always been pretty futuristic, and why not? Carrying around a portable gaming system or having one in your living room requires some panache, especially when it's usually always visible. What if that intricate style in gaming carried into other creations as well? French mag Amusement released some found art in the form of gaming architecture, where buildings are made to look like Playstations, Nintendos, and Nintendo DS. Picture living or working in one of those buildings. It would be a gamer's finest hour.

Seeing this little anime figure on this cool looking motorcycle was definitely one of those "oh, shit!" moments. The fact that it transforms into giant arms for the figure sealed the deal and even allowed me to break my "no model kit" rule which I think these are. You can pre-order the actual Pest-X figure on Ami Ami for 26% off for 2,160 yen - Due out in June. The Bike will be out in September and retailing for 3,990 yen. Sadly, I don't think the partially painted kit looks as awesome as these pics out of the box. But then again, this will give me a opportunity to custom paint a kit for the first time.

Funny commercial for MGS Peace Walker video game on Sony PSP. I used to hang out in a box as a kid too. But mine was more a fortress / space ship kinda thing.
