So I just saw the new episode of Steven Universe, "Future Vision," which started with Steven putting some of his old toys into storage.  Now there are plenty of little easter eggs in these cartoon network shows if you pay attention (notably he also has a gamecube, lol) but this one caught my attention as 3 of the toys he was putting away were distorted versions of Sonic, Cloud, and a blocky robot I think was supposed to be a transformer.  BUT, I took a closer look at the "Cloud" figure and realized it wasn't Cloud at all, IT WAS HERO!  Hero, in case you don't know, is the main character of a webcomic called RPG world written by Ian J.  Here's a picture of him: nevernotanerd.com/wp-content/u… This was the first time I noticed, but apparently this isn't even Hero's first cameo, check out this gif made from an earlier episode: 24.media.tumblr.com/70e4ec8bee…  RPG world was the first webcomic I ever read, way back before I even started college.  Wow...I wonder if this is because Ian got a job at cartoon network, I kind of lost track of him when his comic ended but I remember reading something about that in a post.  Good for him ^_^
Yeah...I now officially hate Five Nights at Freddies, sorry FNAF fans but I learned what kind of game it was and immediately lost all respect for it.  Okay, so like I said before my initial exposure to FNAF was from all the fan art of it, I mean TONS of fan art, like, almost my little pony levels.  I figured the game must have some really appealing character designs to inspire so much fanart, so I wasn't surprised when eventually I got a few requests to make figures of them, only problem was I couldn't tell the difference between fan art and official screen caps, so I had someone who knew link me to some...the game looks AWFUL.  The character designs are blobby and stupid looking, and the graphics themselves are terrible, they'd embarrass a PS1.  When I first saw the official screencaps during my own image searches I mistook them for lower tier fan art.  I figured the gameplay must be pretty awesome to elevate those crappy graphics and designs, then I saw the review of the game on Zero Punctuation and found out you sit in a room waiting for jump scares.  Seriously?  A JUMP SCARE simulator?!  THAT'S their idea of horror?  Jump scares are a cheap, lazy way to get a response from the audience, and any horror that relies on them as the sole source of fear is just crap.  So now FNAF is no longer just the thing I'm not into, it is officially a thing I dislike, and I will not support it by making my own fan art, even if it's commissioned from other people.
So it's been pretty definitively confirmed that Jazwares has canceled their Sonic line, not only will there be no new Sonic figures from them but they will stop making their old ones, so once the ones that are out there are sold there will be no more.  This of course presents a problem to me, since making Sonic customs is sort of my thing.  Now there is no need to panic, I have a supply of figures and parts to burn through, and it should take a while for all the figures out there in the wild to sell out...BUT if you're on my queue it may be a good idea to get the base figure I would need to make your character, just in case they sell out before I get to your name.  Even so I believe we haven't seen the last of those molds, the next company to get the license may re-use them (remember Jazwares got their start by re-releasing a bunch of toy island's molds) Heck TOMY might even acquire them as a supplement to the Boom toyline, and there will always be knock-offs, the paint quality is of little consequence to me, so long as the plastic is decent I can easily make customs with them as easily as the official figures.

I charge $5 for a drawn commission.  Though I have thrown in a quick pencil sketch for free to people who get figures made.

I'm thinking about making some figures based on some comic book characters I created and since your quite good at customisation I would like you to tell me what sort of stuff I would need for customising figures

I don't know, their figures are still in stores and nothing is clearanced yet. Even if they don't make new characters there's no reason to stop making and distributing existing toys as long as they remain in demand.

wait what?!  Your store has Blacksmith Tails and Sir Gawain!?  I can't believe those figures actually EXIST!  You have to middleman the pair over to me if you can get them!  Do you have any pics?

Have you ever thought of making a Star Saber (Victory anime) using the 2006 Classics Jetfire?
