DIY Vinyl Toy Custom of the Month- Spikor!

Spikor Custom Toy by Taylor Lymbery
 Oh, Spikor! You really are a silly creation! So I'm back at it with making my second Roseart Color Blank Custom action figure. And I have to admit, I really, REALLY enjoy making these, but this one was REALLY challenging! (The initial head paint rubbed off. I accidentally broke the head off at one point. I couldn't get the arms to go back into the body. The mace melded itself into his right hand due to the size of the open grasp.) Problems. But, when I finished up this guy, I couldn't help but be very proud of his customizing work I had done. I really like him! I'm torn on if I want to sell this guy or not. For now, I think I'll hold on to him. I do have some more Color Blanks that I was able to get on the cheap, but I have some illustration work to do before I get to another.

P.S. There's more pics after all of the important promotion!

Want to see the deviantart sheet for him? Go here.

I am opening commissions on sketch cards. They will be $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to Name your character and we will go from there.

Rob and I will be at the Dallas Comic Con. The Convention will be May 19th-20th. It will be at the Irving Convention Center that is located at 500 W Las Colinas Blvd. , Irving, TX. Tickets for Saturday will be $25.00 for 11:00am to 7:00pm, and tickets for Sunday will be $20.00 for 11:00am to 4:00pm. If you happen to go to the Convention, stop by and say hi to Rob and I.

  1. Very cool, I actually saw him earlier today when I did a google search for MOTU Color Blanks, but didn't notice he was yours.

    1. Yep, he's mine. I loved making Masters of the Universe characters in the DIY form. If you need a bigger Vinyl DIY doll, you could get a Mighty Mugg's blank or a Munny. I'm looking at getting a Munny soon for a Big Darkness custom.
