    You could dye it as dark as you wanted, it will just always have a bit of a color cast of whatever the original vinyl was.

    thanks man! I was lucky to get one of the clear ones- I wish t9g would do a clear Rangeas!

    thanks. Skullwings are one of my favorites.

    also- if anyone thinks they might like me to paint something I'm open to commissions! just drop me a line!

    Hey, Phil. Great stuff. I'm a little too proud to have recognized Metamorpho before I read the caption to confirm it. I think I might have read a few too many issues of Batman and the Outsiders... :)

    Some new stuffs!

    I've repainted this figure more times then I can count, and it never seemed quite right. I finally got this guy painted the way I want. ;)

    [​IMG]
    TOkoichi- he was fun to paint one of these finally.

    [​IMG]
    It wouldn't be a proper update to this thread without a new skullwing. ;)

    [​IMG]

    First Mid Sized Rangeas custom! I like them much more now that I've gotten a chance to paint a pair!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    This one is an homage to the 1971 Bullmark Bemular Kaiju, which I think (I'm guessing here) in no small way influenced t9g when he designed Rangeas. Its my favorite of this latest bunch of crazies.

    group shot!

    and here's some older customs I've been meaning to re-shoot:

    These all look great. The color on everything is unexpected and perfect. Really liking the color transitions on several pieces. Tokoichi is great.

    Re: Hellopike Custom Kaiju

    Thanks for the kind words guys! "Unexpected and perfect" is one of the best critiques I could get, thank you!

    Plastichunter- the Orange and Green guy is Zulu Seijin by Marmit- I believe he's an Ultraman villain. If you're interested, I just set up a bigcartel store with some of my customs-
    http://www.hellopike.bigcartel.com

    There's also a link on my blog!

    thanks again for looking guys!

    I notice your color themes consistently included brown earth tones which I really like.

    heh, I've been telling myself lately that this must be my "Orange period" I've been enjoying orange, yellows and purples quite a bit lately. ;)

    Thanks Mike! It's all in the boots. ;)

    Re: Hellopike Custom Kaiju

    Thanks pickle- I've been trying to work on my RxH stuff, I'm not a huge fan of RxH outside of the mutant chaos, and I think it reflects a little. I just don't feel rxh like I feel secret base. And you know if you want to own any of them, just say the word... ;)

    Wow Phil, you have a great eye for colors. My favorite is the Zulu Seijin. And yes, it's all in the boots! The Rangeas also came out very vibrant too. Good work!

    C'mon Pickle! Get back on the horse and paint something up so we can trade! A big part of my collection is customs from other board members and I don't have a PL custom yet!
