All colors I bought turn dry after a few months once I open it and used only one time. So I have to wait until many customs need the same color to paint it at once. Now I paint most of the things temporary by water color, look terrible.
The new bootlegs for wcf are the first set of the movie RoF. Hope that bootlegs will coming again for second set of the movie. I guess the vol.0 was skipped so I have to buy the legit set before it's too late.
I have a brother 2 yrs younger than me, who is an autism, never go to work or never did anything good, just lock himself in room smoking and playing computer all day long,
really a pain in my butt.
When I went to u.s last year,
I don't know what's his problem he threw away most of my customs at the outer area on cabinet,
include all Tournament, Frieza's Force, Red Ribbon Army, Baba Saga...etc.
I want a piece of paper from death note so bad...
Only the customs at the bottom of cabinet which need to kneel down to take out are survive.
So I still got the customs on p.3 in this thread include all movies(so far I only found that Salt and psyche oni are missing),
OtherWorld Tournament, Bardock's team, all Kai and Supreme Kai,
and some remaining customs I didn't put into cabinet due to it already full.
Since I lost the Buffed Perfect Cell, I bought a Figma of Hulk to make another one. I only got a bootleg shf cell for comparison. Seems too big, only scale with Figure-rise or Dragon stars.
Although the Loyal's cell got no joint at their elbows and knees,but so far I can't found better figure base to customize cell Jr.
So I bought 6 of it and with the Irwin one(I lost the custom that made from dwc), I finally got 7 cell Jr.
The face of a Jakks Ginyu look fit to put it on Buffed Perfect Cell.
I cut off the face and glue it on so it's not interchangeable.
And I bought a bigger cell husk from Figure-rise instead of the dwc one.
Some customs for the part of Dr.slump. The head of sourman look too big. I want the one from wcf to replace the head...
Since I lost King Yemma (Annin and Princess Snake too), I originally design to buy a bigger Kingpin(BAF) to make another one. But I saw the following King Yemma sell at store so I bought one though it's too small. No idea where's it come from. The material and painting feel like the same as the exploding cell I got.
I'm so sorry to hear about your brother throwing your customs away!!!!
I love your new customs! I am glad to see that King Yemma in your collection and comparison photo! I saw that for sale on ebay as King Yama and considered getting one. It would be very small for my collection though, so I am trying to resist the temptation to buy one!
I love just sitting and looking at your custom figures for several minutes.
I like your Shisami made from Jakks Recoome. That was a good idea. I love your Tagoma, what is he made from? Is your Master Roshi the one that was made in Mexico, or where did you find that? What did you make Jaco out of?
Here's a picture of the Mexican Bootleg Master Roshi. Did you get this and repaint it? Yours looks really good!
Your King Chappa is really good. Is that a WCF Mr. Satan head? I love your Master Shen!!! Where did you get the head? What body is that? The Man Wolf and Wolf Man look great! Pamput is great too.
That Goz and Mez look incredible! They look extremely similar to my custom figures from ~10 years ago, but even better. Do you know what size they are? How much do they cost in USD? I've never seen them before!
Not a good idea to made Shisami from Jakks Recoome due to a lot of work to do.
If there's bootleg for the second DBS shf Broly in the future, everyone can make an easy Shisami.
The Tagoma made from a Marvel (or DC?) figure.(left one on picture shown below) I bought one more for Dyspo of Universe 11.
The Jaco is the old custom I show before. I did repaint only.
It's a body of sanding any dwc with other arms and legs I forgot what's it out of.
You has show the picture of the Mexican figures I bought from ebay.
I bought it for Master Roshi, but I didn't repaint anything. The color look like a little different(I put it on picture below)
Although android 17 is the winner of Tournament of Power but there's no shf or dragon star for the final winner at all.
Look like that's the only one we can buy, still look acceptable if swapping head for him.
And the small Jiren and Whis may be I can use it for any member of Universe 11 and one of the angel.
Moreover, I bought a set of bootlegs for Future Trunks Saga around the same size of real works(also shown below).
But the head of wcf Mai look too big after I swap head for her.
Yeah the King Chappa's head is from wcf Satan. I used cp head for the old custom, or any Satan's head like Irwin one is fine.
The head of Master Shen come from a series called historical figure(Banpresto).
Not super rare but the seller now usually sell the entire set only.
And the body I used opposite side of kid Gohan from bigger bootlegs of adverge, with legs of real works Gotenks(or any legs is fine). By the way, if the Krillin from next wave of Dragon star is around 5 inch. I'll buy it for tournament of 22nd/23rd Yamcha or 23rd Goku.
Goz and Mez look like the same size of King Yemma from the picture of the only seller shown.
They're around usd $60 for each one. I guess you're not interest.
Btw I saw an android chamber on taobao suppose to release at the end of last year.
But unfortunately the post was closed. I guess the project was cancel due to no one preorder it.(I didn't too)
That's interesting that your Mexican bootleg Roshi is different colors. It looks like it is painted a lot better than the other one with green pants. The Jiren you have has metallic skin too. And, of course, your UI Goku is SSG Goku. Very interesting. I wish official, well-done molds of the Mexican bootlegs existed, because their sculpts seem pretty good. The paint work and quality of the casting is bad though.
I love your head swap on the Mexican bootleg Android 17.
There is an unlicensed figure available in South America of Android 17, but I haven't located one to buy yet. Marquillo lives in Argentina and he hasn't seen it yet. This picture is from Peru Mercado Libre. There's also an Ultra Instinct Goku that hasn't been seen in Argentina yet in this package as well.
These figures are incredible bootlegs that are made in China and for some reason only available to purchase in South America and the Philippines. Have you seen them for sale where you live?
I haven't seen the bootlegs that are Real Works size yet!!!! Can you please take a comparison photo of Goku Black standing next to Irwin or Super Battle Collection Goku?? Is he too small? I haven't determined if I am going to just have to make a Goku Black from a Great Saiyaman SBC figure or what I'm going to do.
I'll have to look for the historical figure that includes Master Shen. I just looked at ebay, and $40 is very expensive for 1 head, so I may just have to make my own someday.
$60 for each Goz and Mez is pretty expensive. Not worth it to me since my custom figures look very similar. They do look very good though. Could you please send me a message with a Taobao search I can bookmark that will show cool things like Goz and Mez and other bootleg figures? I can't figure out how to search on taobao, and I would like to waste time and daydream while looking at it.
The Android chamber looks pretty cool. A shame nobody pre-ordered it.
That's exactly what I'm searching now. So many variety characters... But I can't found it on taobao or ebay.
Here is a comparison photo. (I put a bootleg Jiren in picture too.) Look like a little bit smaller than sbc. For me still worth to buy not just for Mai, there're two bases for making other supreme kais. I think it'll be much easy to make a 5 inch Goku Black by swapping the legs for bootleg shf.
Just sent you message. I found Goz and Mez because I search for King Yemma first.
Most of the time I saw the bootlegs or unlicensed new figures(like freiza in cocoon, Baby Goku/Vegeta/Broly in chamber...etc) on ebay first then I go to search it on taobao.
