Simpson Custom Figures

Post by MakerofThings » Sun Feb 22, 2004 7:50 pm

Hi,

I hope this is the right place to post. I've been making custom Simpsons figures for the past couple of years and wanted to add a bit of my artwork to this Forum. I've just finished the sculpture of my latest figure: Richard Nixon and would like to invite you to checkout my website to view this work in progress.

www.makerofthings.com

Here is a list of my other customs:

X-files Mulder and Scully
The 7 Little Duffs
Casino Burns (retired)
Troy McClure as the Human

Toyfare Mark Hamill
Toyfare Leonard Nimoy
Toyfare Mel Gibson
Toyfare Spinal Tap

I hope to soon have a step by step guide to making Simpsons Customs on my site. I'll keep you posted on that.

Michael

Whoa... you made these? :o

I gotta say, nice work! I don't think we've had Simpson models here before, but hey, it's still art right?

Anyway, I'm impressed. :)

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

I love them, Maker of Things! I'm highly impressed.
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

I'm just gobsmacked. Those are fantastic models.
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye. An evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum swam across the Gulf of Mexico wearing a shark fin on his back and then planted a bomb on a boat. Think about that. Let that sink in. Now. Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

Now the question is... would Maker of Things do requests for non-show characters/costumes? ;)

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Very well done. I've made some custom figures myself, se if I can get some pics of them someday.
