Other Custom Figures sites

6700curtisbrainstorms - Besides a bunch of  supernatural figures, I also got the custom Eternity from him, he has since made a 6' (feet) version! (site seems down)

Arkenyon's Custom Action Figures - some real nice Marvel and DC customs - to me, his villains are very menacing, he also has helpful how-to articles

Bad Black Cat Customs - he had a great showing at CustomCon 14 of some well done 5" Marvels and I'm glad to see he got his site up and running to showcase his fantastic collection of customs - unfortunately my buddy's website seems to be down

Battlehammer Creations - all of his customs are very clean and smooth, i am most impressed with his animated-styled figures.  ( Battlehammer Creations seems to be down which is a shame since he's such a great customizer.  The link goes to his the house of ideas gallery)

Brother Voodoo's Plastic Knights - he has a ton of  Marvel 5" custom figures as well as playsets and vehicles.  The standouts for me are his Thunderbolts customs.  (Note:  the link is to his the house of ideas gallery)

BullyBoy Action Figures -  Nice customs from Marvel and DC in 5" and 6" scales but I especially like the cool photography with some nice action effects.  (Seems down)

Caenman Customs - really creative Marvel 5" customs, he specializes in customs from the Age of Apocalypse storyline

Captain Hi-Top's Laboratory - 5"  Marvel customs - i like his Defenders and New Warriors figures

Chip and Davy's Total Custom World - Besides custom action figures, they also have.good articles on taking digital pictures of action figures and dioramas

Customs by Dave - sweet 5" scale Marvel Toybiz styled customs, he has a penchant for making the supernatural and creepy characters from the underbellies of the Ghost Rider, Hellboy and Valiant universes.  

Doubledealer's Custom Figures - His customs are true works of art AND he keeps their articulation intact, unbelievable!  Professional quality work here.  You gotta check out his Psylocke and Shanna the She-Devil

Great White Custom Figures and Design - I saw his figs on Ebay and was stunned, proud to own several of his pieces in my collection.  5" Marvel and DC customs.  His site seems to be down so the link goes to his house of ideas.net custom gallery

The House of Ideas.net - Formerly the uncannyxmen.net, this site now showcases all Marvel customs not just focusing on the X-Men universe.

Inanimate Objects

Iron Cow Productions

Jack's Custom Page - (sadly the site seems to now be off-line)

Jin Saotome's Dangerous Toys - His customs are regularly featured in Toyfare magazine. 

Johnny Cheung's Customs - love his 5" Marvels, in particular check out his amazing Shia'r Imperial Guard and Squadron Supreme customs (Note:  Seems to be down since the Coolcollecting website switched to a DVD site, the link is to his the house of ideas gallery)

Joe Acevedo - he has hosted many of the CustomCons as well as other customizers' galleries.  A pillar of the customizing community

Mattman's Custom Figures - This father and son duo produces awesome customs of Marvel Universe characters in the 5" scale.  The top of the 5" customizing game as far as i'm concerned, his work raises the bar each time he shows a new custom.  His Hulk, X-Statix and Serpent Society customs are must see.

Raynir's Custom Action Figures - a very talented Marvel Legends scale customizer, has a huge number of great customs

Thor292's Secret Stash of Custom Figures - a good selection of 5" Marvel, X-Men and Avengers customs
