Taylor's Toy Tuesday's DIY Custom- The Spectre Pony

The Spectre Pony by Taylor Lymbery
I just couldn't help myself! I came across some tiny vinyl ponies by Toysmith at a drugstore one day. They were a great price and all I could think of is making a comicbook heroes out of them. So the first one done is The Spectre Pony- the Pony Spirit of Vengeance! I've only read a few stories of The Spectre. None of the stories really stuck with me, so I never really got into this character from the DC universe. From what I found on him, he is a supernatural being of nigh-unlimited might whose mission on Earth is to bring the wrath of God upon evil men. He is bound to the soul of a deceased human. Three humans have been bound to the Spectre during the modern age, with Crispus Allen being its current. That's a quick blurb about him. There is more to him, but I won't go into all of the background. If you want to read more, here is a background on The Spectre! So this pony has one point of articulation at his neck. He has soft goods collar, hood, and cape. He also features glow-in-the-dark eyes and "wrath splatter" on his little pony legs! I've learned some things about painting and glueing working on this pony in it's small scale. So far, I have taken all of my fail lessons and have improved techniques that should make these ponies better in the future, but don't get me wrong, I do like this pony! I'll have this pony and any other ponies completed along with the other custom toys at the upcoming Fan Days Con  in Irving TX. If you are in the (NAY)-berhood, you should stop by and let me know what you think of the toys! Hopefully I'll see many of you there! Now, I've got some important updates, so more pictures will be at the end of this posting. Enjoy the pics. I've got to get back to illustrating comic books! :)

Cortical Stimulator design by Taylor Lymbery

 I could almost make a drinking game on how many times the mighty cortical stimulator has saved someone's life! Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Oh, Chakotay! design by Taylor Lymbery
No one can melt Captain Janeway's heart away like this Maquis hunk, leaving Katherine only saying, "Oh, Chakotay!" Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Child's Play design by Taylor Lymbery
It seems silly, but every kid that liked star trek that I knew, wanted an Enterprise to ride around on. It would've been awesome. Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Space Anomaly design by Taylor Lymbery
There was one episode in the Voyager series where Neelix asked why Voyager had to go and inspect every anomaly it came across. Shortly after, the ship was trapped in a sub-space hole in a nebula; and then after that, about to be devoured by a living ion cloud monster; and then after that... You get the picture. Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Tricorder Theatre
I've read that the scene in Generations where Data is using his tricorder as a puppet, is thought to be one of the worst jokes in the Star Trek universe. When I saw this scene in the theater, I laughed so hard I had soda shoot through my nostrils! Needless to say, I still find it kind of funny. Don't judge... Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. I'll be there with a ton of new work to sell, a new issue of Xenex the Bug Man and new posters. So I'll see you there!

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

I just updated the Xenex the Bug Man website with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to Marvindogmedia.com  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
