Castle Broskull has jets and figures and trucks and tanks and.... Business is booming!

Hi all,

Back from taking a few weeks off from blogging to focus on writing my novel. And getting projects done.

Not to mention, lost a few days....with like 8-10 migraines this month... yuck!

Regardless, lots of new finished projects to share. Many thanks to the Lady of Castle Broskull, who has been painting up a storm too.

So let me get right to it.

Let's start with MOTU.

I was hired to make a MOTU crossover with DC's Black Manta. I knew this was gonna be fun, so I hit ebay and found some parts. Basically, this is a FAKER body with an existing Black Manta head. Getting them to fit together was the hard part. I manged to do so...and the head still tilts up and down. Very happy with that.

Black Manta!

Next up, is my restore job of an old MOTU Windraider. It was broken and in poor...poor condition. I cleaned it. Stripped it of its old stickers, primed it, undercoated it and then hand-painted it.

I waited like 2 months for some repro stickers.... all I wanted to do was put the computer panels in. That's it. So here it is finally finished.

Love this restore job - and I am keeping it!

Favorite part? The ice on the wings.

Okay! You know Castle Broskull loves crossover projects. So I bought (2) broken Soundwave G1 Transformers. One to restore and do something RAD with. Another to make into a Cobra Battle Android Trooper.

Yes, that is a Fallout PVC figure head. I needed to find this thing a new head, it had NO head!!! So, I went online and looked and looked. Finally, I found something that was the right size and style. People love it. So do I!

It transitions perfectly!

Look at it!

So much fun and it got a TON of likes on FB. Several hundred.

Side by Side comparison.

Look, it could be the Joe figure's daddy. LOL.

Want more? Well, since everyone loved the Thundercracker GIJOE- Transformer crossover...and we here at Castle Broskull loved making it... We went forward and made SKYWARP!!!

You know, the 2nd one is always better than the first. It's like you learn the first time around and then knock the 2nd one out of the park. This SKYWARP is a good example. I think it turned out amazing!!!

AND!!! I am making two more of them for custom orders. I can make more...just message me and ask.

Love this pic!

It's wicked!

Okay, that's it for now. I will share more later. I am finishing up a CHUCKLES Force GI JOE set. Which if you follow me on FB you have seen some of already. I also did three customer appreciation projects. These projects were to give back to three of my big commission customers. I did three small free projects and shipped two of them out today. I will show them off next week.

Thanks all!
