Custom Toy of the Week- "LV-426"!

Back last fall, I participated in the Vinyl Thoughts Art Show 6. I had two pieces in show that reflected two of my loved film franchises, Alien, and Predator. My first piece was reflective of Alien. This piece, "LV-426", was a fun challenge. I wanted to add elements that spoke of the stillness of the first of the film before all the steam and spinning lights. One of my favorite scenes is when the Nostromo and ore station are coming up to the gas giant and the multiple moons. To capture that look, I made the head the space scene adding the 3-D element of the Nostromo and Station as a sculpted piece. The rest of the custom toy was set up to reflect my next favorite part of the film, the exploration of the derelict spacecraft and the egg field. I had to rearrange a few items and change a little of the shape of some of the exploration suits. This suit is Kain's, using the yellow band as his designated color. Each of the egg sacks were hand sculpted and the based was colored to mimic the worm metal coloring of the pads of the space suit. I had a great time building this custom vinyl toy for the Vinyl Thoughts Art Show! Below are more pictures of this toy after the messages below. You can also see this toy on my deviantart page here. You can follow up on Vinyl Thoughts on their webpage

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 show is The pilot episode, where Jeff and Cory break down the Pilot Episode in TV series. 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:
