Welcome to Planet Hulk

Just saw this on Phil Reed's Battlegrip website:



Planet Hulk was my favorite Hulk story arc in years, and it looks like this movie is going to be a good adaptation. I mean, come on... Clancy Brown as the voice of the Hulk? YEAH-YUH! It looks like they have based the look of the characters more on Jose Ladronn's artwork for the covers than the interior work by Carlo Pagulayan. I'm NOT complaining, as I'm a huge Ladronn fan!

I've been pleased with most of the Marvel animated movies(especially the fantastic Hulk Vs. DVD), so here's hoping this one is just as good, if not better!!!

Omnom!

This is Omnom. He likes to eat. Just thought I'd share a few work-in-progress shots for you guys to see. Omnom has been a little bit of sculpting and a LOT of sanding. Trying to get him smoooov as a baby's tushie! This has been a really fun guy to make-- he's really the first figure of his kind I ever made ( I usually customize figures or make zombies ). Now I know why toy artists make these things... it's so rewarding seeing your brain burps come to life!

Hope you guys dig him!

Little Green Army Men

I've been busting my butt working on a commission this week, but I've been taking breaks to goof around with Dave Pappas' MAIM Trooper Buildmen. Here are some of the things I built:

More building funtimes... it's very nice to have multiple solid-color buildmen... makes building a LOT easier!

I decided to use a different kind of Buildman to pilot these so it's easier to tell where the vehicle ends and the figure begins!!!

This is the Stalker. A mobile gun platform with a mind of its own, the Stalker strides into battle with blasters blazing!







Attack Rat. Small mobile destruction drone. Avoid at all costs!!!





The Beast is an all-terrain attack craft capable of handling any environment. The wheel legs shift up and down to absorb shock.











The Chopper... well... you get the idea. I tried to make it with just two wheels, but there's only so much you can do to defy gravity!







It would be against my religion to have a handful of green Glyos parts and not make this guy. Hope you guys enjoy it! That's what this is all about, after all... enjoying toys!!!

SKREEEEEE-ONNNK!











(yes... I do realize that I have the right knee upside-down on the first few pics... I didn't notice until about half-way through... I was in a hurry to get these pics up before company arrives!)

Keep an eye on Dave's site pappysoup for the upcoming release of these great exclusive figures from Onell Design!!!

METAL COMBAT!!!!!

Here's a leetle picture I drew for Dave Pappas to help out with his MAIM Trooper figure project. I did it in the style of older military comics from the late 60's and early 70's but gave it a little twist with the Star Wars-era Marvel Comics cover layout (just because!).



Check out the figures Dave sent me to test out. I get to play with toys as part of my job... YEAH-YUH!!!



















These figures seriously rule! They're colored like the old army men I used to play with as a kid, and the addition of the wheels to the standard Buildman figure opens up a whole new world of possibilities! Check out Dave's site and enjoy some of his great fiction and keep an eye out for his upcoming MT-Buildmen figures!!!
