Action Figures Based Solely on the Covers of ‘Baby-Sitters Club’ Books

Sass Sold Separately
Two of my friends recently suggested I make a line of Baby-Sitters Club custom action figures (whatever face you're making is the exact same face I made when they asked me). Given the fact that I was reading Stephen King in junior high, I never really dove into The Baby-Sitters Club. But I at least entertained the thought for my friends' sake and perused a few Baby-Sitters Club book covers.

Let’s just say things got dark. While I still haven’t read a single page of any book from the series, the ridiculously stylized cover art completely inspired me by it's wholesomeness, campiness, and general shittiness. So I decided to make a series of custom figures based solely on the super crappy Baby-Sitters Club book covers (along with the stories that formed in my own brain).

Custom Made "Fallen Heroes" Action Figure Line

I figured it was time to give Blockbuster and Toys R Us the action figures they deserve with these custom made Assistant Manager figures.

Vintage Toys Updated with More Accurate Names

When it comes to vintage toys, there’s a razor-thin line between crappy, awesome, and awesomely crappy. This extremely heavy-hitting issue prompted me to search deep within myself and update a few vintage toys from my own collection with slightly more accurate names. (Also, my Photoshop skills are, at best, nauseating.)

Old-School NES Figures Made from Vintage Toys

Some of the first customs I ever made were vintage-style Mega Man and Mario figures made from old Kenner Star Wars toys (Mario actually reappeared in my NES Black Box series). I finally got around to finishing up the line with the addition of Zelda, Castlevania and Metroid.

Custom Michael Myers Figure from ‘Halloween’ 2018

Like most of the horror world right now, I’m pretty excited for the new Halloween trailer tomorrow. To celebrate, I gave my Super7 Myers figure a new body (compliments of some Star Wars figures) and recarded him onto the new 2018 poster art. 

He’s on eBay as a 24-hour auction, so don’t miss out if you’re interested. If you’re not interested, then you probably have stopped reading by now.

Custom 'Miami Vice' Alligator Figures

My good buddy Adam from AC Customs (also the sculptor behind the custom Chopping Mall Killbots) recently asked for this Miami Vice alligator figure. I have to say, I was so unfamiliar with the show that I didn't even know what he was talking about at first...

Death by Toys on 'The Goldbergs'

A while back, Adam F. Goldberg (the creator of The Goldbergs) messaged me about buying the custom Innerspace "toy" I made, which is just an empty plastic bubble on a cardback. I said he could have it since it's literally garbage glued to garbage, but he was super cool about it and insisted on paying. 

He then gave me the ABC Studio corporate FedEx number and had me overnight it to him so he could film it for a bit. It was a very bizarre experience, and it was pretty fun to see it on the show last night. (Plus, it was a Golden Girls tribute episode directed by Lea Thompson from Back to the Future.)
