Taylor's Toy Wednesday's DIY Custom- Rygel XVI!


Rygel Custom toy by Taylor Lymbery

At the last Fan Days convention I had a guest stop by and wonder if I had anything "Rygel" from Farscape. At the time I didn't. So, I decided to make a Rygel the XVI custom toy to have for this next convention. If it had not been for this request, I never would have thought to make any of the characters from Farscape, but I might try my hand at another character like Dargo or Scorpius. 

This custom toy is made from of a Creatology little man vinyl body and has only one point of articulation that is at the neck. I really didn't feel that he really needed anymore  articulation other than that. Rygel mainly sits in his floating chair in the series. He does have a hair like material in place for his mustache and eyebrows. One other big change from what I normally do to make these toys is that I used some very nice sculpty clay and molded pieces directly to the vinyl head then baked together. I feel that it turned out great. 

So, guest, if you are reading this and you still want a Rygel custom toy, I'll have it at the Xenex the Bug Man/ Marvindogmedia table at the Sci-Fi Expo. 


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! :)

I do have a table for the Sci-Fi Expo on February 9-10th. I'll be there with some new work to sell,my pin-up girl posters, the newest issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will be there with me selling some Marvindog media merchandise and taking toy memory recordings! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I hope to see you there!

I have posted some new shirt designs in my Cafepress store. Head over to my Cafepress store and get a shirt or a couple! 

I have all Xenex the Bug Man comic books available for print on demand. You can see that listing here on my store's tab for comic books. 


Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how. 

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! 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! 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:

  2. In fact fashion was never cooler or cheaper than the custom made printed shirts. You can now own any wacky or crazy design on your t-shirts which makes others stop and take notice. There is absolutely nothing that the services don't print on your shirts. Custom shirts
