Hunt for the Holocron - Bando Jinkuru

Hunt for the Holocron is a Star Wars film my friend Martin has been working on for 10 years. We're determined that this year, no really, it will finally be complete. I'm helping him create ship models for the effects shots and we hope to have the film done and ready for viewing Decemeber, 2012. There's a lot of work to do, but I'm confident we can pull it off.

Of course, ever since he showed me a rough cut, I've been dying to make customs of the film's main characters!

Infected Infantry

Keenan over at joecustoms.com hooked me up with some great zombie heads and grabby hands he casted (and did a beautiful job of it, too). He's got a pretty great and grizzly photo-comic about zombies and GI Joe called End of Days that's worth checking out if you're interested in either of those subjects!

Anyway, those odds and ends are just the pieces I need to finish up about a half dozen background zombies I've been parting together, and this is the first one! Just a generic grunt succumbing to the Green Flu.

Parts Recipe:
Zartan - Base Figure
Keenan Kasts - Hands, Head

Z.E.D. - Agent J

The ZOMBIE ELIMINATION DEPARTMENT, or Z.E.D. for short, was formed when the United States government recognized the need for a centralized resource to prevent, control, and eliminate all possibilities of an undead breakout on American soil. Agents are recruited from various law enforcement and military backgrounds and are trained in all aspects of zombie threat assessment and management.

Agent "J" is an exemplary Z.E.D. field agent and accomplished marksman. Z.E.D. considers her to be one their most valuable assets in the zombie war.

Lady Jaye - Head
Scarlett - Body, Upper Legs, Hands

Self Portrait in Plastic

I had to do a self portrait for one of my college courses, and decided on shooting some of my custom figures. I had wanted to try to shoot everything I'd made to date, but I just don't have the lens to shoot a setup like that and get the detail I wanted, so I tackled a smaller subset: me and all my zombie figures. I think it came out pretty well!
