Cottage Industries Can Be Scary

What you’re looking at, just in the off-chance you didn’t immediately recognize it, is a custom-crafted Mego-compatible Abomination head. Look at that sculpt, man. It’s like Abomination himself is looking at me.

Here’s what’s so awesome about this Ebay auction: Someone made this with love. Some oddball working with a scalpel and maybe some injection molding elements I don’t understand –might as well be plutonium– crafted this with blood, sweat and tears. And the very best part? I DOESN’T look like crap. I would respect this seller even if his product looked like a cat’s ass, but it looks good and the respect is doubled. Even if you don’t have any Mego figures on which to put this thing, check this out. It’s weirdly compelling when you think about what goes into it.

What’s cookin’ in Plano, TX???

Custom figures, that’s what. And some AWESOME custom figures at that.

I think this is a cool scene – people who take the time, effort, and obvious skill level to make customs of figures that either don’t yet or just straight up won’t ever get a figure mass produced. Kudos – my inner child salutes you.

While the prices are somewhat prohibitive to casual interest, I think it’s reflective of the time invested. Here are some of my favorites, but be sure to click through and see some of the others…

U.S. Agent. He’s been mehhh in recent years – but in his glory days as the fill-in Captain America and then being shipped off to the West Avengers (or Avengers West Coast at the time) – golden.

Polaris in a more recent look. I think she’s been rockin’ this in the recent Space X-Men adventures. Always an underrated x-character.

Madelyn Pryor, the Goblin Queen. If you have never read the Inferno crossover… do. So cool. There’s also a What If? Issue based on the series with Ron Lim art, one of my favorite comics. Might have to write that up soon.

Ben Reily, the Scarlet Spider. Truth zone – I got back into Spidey comics to read the clone saga because I dug the Scarlet Spider look. I promptly dropped the books after I realized it was like getting on a train three stops away from a sharp cliff and no tracks…

Saving the best for last…The New Mutants. Magma, Magick, Karma, Cannonball, Doug Ramsey…err I mean Cipher, Sunspot, Wolfsbane, and Mirage. Well done.
