Custom Creation Corner

It’s time once again to shine a spotlight on some of the interesting customizers out there in the toy collecting realm. I noticed this on Ebay today and thought it might be of interest to vintage He-Man collectors.

This is not my figure and I don’t know the guy who made it. I just happened to stumble upon it. I guess there’s still a fairly big community of classic Masters of the Universe collectors out there. Vintage MOTU customs seem to be on the rise if my research at tells me anything. This figure is coming from Buenos Aires. Who knew there were hardcore MOTU fans in Argentina?!

Wrestlemania 28 is April 1, 2012 and from now until then, Infinite Hollywood will have special Wrestlemania themed posts. With wrestling figure reviews, news and the like. We start today off with a custom figure…
It’s Infinite Hollywood’s ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA!

It’s time for another custom creation, this time, one of my own! You can’t talk about Wrestlemania or wrestling in general, without mentioning Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan main evented the first 9 Wrestlemania events. The event itself was basically a play off the Hulkamania fever that was running wild in the country. He’s since went on to compete in a couple more Wrestlemanias, including his infamous showdown with the Rock, which is arguably the most famous wrestling match since the turn of the century.

However, Hogan has not had a figure from Mattel in their WWE Legends line. Hulkster is signed with TNA, a rival wrestling company and has his likeness right currently being used in their Jakks figure collection. This has left a lot of Mattel fans upset. Let’s face it, for most of the 80s and early 90s, WWF was all about Hulk Hogan and everyone else was a bit player. Not having him in the collection is a huge loss.

I’m sure eventually Mattel will make a Hogan figure, but in the meantime, I’ll share my custom with you. A lot of people have made Hogan customs in the Mattel line. However I haven’t seen anyone make this version. I won’t say mine is the best, but if you’re looking for an easy recipe Hulkster that doesn’t require any painting and doesn’t have a jarring skin tone difference, this one’s hard to beat.

It’s time once again to shine a spotlight on some of the incredible customizers out there in the toy collecting realm. Here’s another bright spot, with one of my favorites, The Shredder! Customizer WhiskeyTango over at the Fwoosh cranked out this Shredhead which is a mixture of styles.

This Shredder is no joke. Combining elements from several styles, this figure comes together to make one of the baddest badguys around. How did Whiskey do it? Here’s what he had to say over at the official thread:

A guy over at saw the turtles I did and wanted me to make up ole’ Oruku Saki for him. He wanted him to be kind of a mix off styles, with an emphasis on the unreleased NECA Shredder, and the one from the 2k3 series, so I got to work on him. His head is from Conan with a sculpted helmet and styrene additions. His body is a FO Punisher with Hand Ninja upper legs and Conan hands. I originally tried sculpting his blade armor, but it didn’t work out, so now his shoulders are MM Dark Knight pads with styrene blades, and his leg and armor armor is all styrene. I got really lucky that he wanted him to share some style with the 2k3 shredder, cause that version only has three blades per piece of armor, as opposed to some styles that have like 9. I might have killed myself if that was the case. Enjoy!

For more visit WhiskeyTango’s thread over at the Fwoosh, where you can maybe even get him to make a custom figure for you.

That’s it for this edition of Custom Creations Corner, but if you have a cool custom you want spotlighted, drop us a line and maybe you could be featured right here!

Welcome to a new feature here at Infinite Hollywood and one I hope will continue for some time. We’re scouring the internet to find some of the most unique and interesting custom toys out there. Certainly the big names in customizing get lots of attention, but we thought we’d spread the spotlight onto some of the lesser knowns and show off some of their incredible works.

Today’s inaugural custom comes to us from the 8 inch world of Megos! This often forgotten scale has really made a comeback in the last few years and with new entries into the market, come an influx of creative custom characters. Like none other than, ZOLTAN!

Zoltan Amadeus, otherwise known as Zoltan the Arachnoid, is a character from the old Spider-man and his Amazing Friends cartoon. Zoltan was a scientist who tried to replicate Spider-man’s powers, but ended up turning himself into a gruesome spider beast. Naturally, he was a villain and has remained largely forgotten in the minds of most Marvel comics fans.

However he has not been forgotten in the mind of toy customizer Bob also known as “ThatBatmanGuy”, who has dreamed of a Zoltan to go with his Mego Spider-man since he first laid eyes on the eight legged freak. It’s been quite a few years since then, but Bob has finally completed this masterpiece and it’s the first custom we’re highlighting here on Custom Creations Corner!

Bob managed to take various parts of Megos, his own custom cast pieces and the surprisingly versatile Empress of Racness figure from the Character Options Doctor Who line to create this monstrosity of mischief. Here’s what Bob had to say about his creation:

I watched the old Spiderman and His Amazing Friends back when it was first run. Being a comic book collector, it was given. When this episode ran, I was like “Holy Crap! That’s a cool villain.” The Arachnoid was NOT in Marvel comics. Usually a villain created just for an animated series back then was fair to say the least. Not The Arachnoid! Half-Man, Half-Spider and ALL Villain.

Fast forward 25 – 30 years when I start building custom Megos. This is one that I HAD to do. But, to do it right, meant finding the right parts. Now I build my own resin cast bodies, but that spider body had to wait. That is until the Doctor Who Empress of Racnoss figure was released. Then all of the pieces to my puzzle fell into place. I’ve built a lot of custom Megos, but I really feel this one is one of my best.

This really is a cool figure and one of a kind. You can see the love for the character oozing out of this one and man is he ever creepy. If you like this creation and want to contact Bob about seeing if he can whip up a creation of yours, you can email him at: Not only does he make custom Megos, but he also makes custom computer die-cut vinyl decals for Megos, GI Joe Adventure team, Six Million Dollar Man and Big Jim. If you’re looking for some of those cool retro designs, Bob sounds like your man.
