Up and coming mini figure customiser Terrthom proudly presents his latest OMFG kit-bash, the Cuddley Lagann! Using turboPISTOLA’s popular Cuddlehard as the platform of choice this time around, Terrthom has cleverly replaced the original arms and legs with Gundam kit parts, rounding the piece off with the addition of a new head. Painted and distressed in a red/black palette inspired by Gainax’s popular mecha anime, Gurren Lagann, the neat little piece is up for grabs in the Terrthom store right now for just $25 plus shipping… Terrthom has stated he’ll be updating his store on a near-daily basis, so be sure to keep checking back for more soon!
Moving away from our regular indie toy postings, we bring you a custom piece from established Gundam customiser Dunpeel we simply couldn’t ignore… presenting Zeon’s Moving Castle! Inspired by the towering mass of organic machinery seen in Studio Ghibli’s iconic anime HWC, the piece has been created using multiple Gundam ‘Zaku II’ kits, including the 1/48 Megasize, several 1/100 Master Grades and a backpack from the RX-78-2 Gundam. Brought together with the help of some seamless additional sculpting, the piece has been faithfully painted in Zaku’s original olive, black and red tones, coming mounted on a scaled grass base… Unfortunately details on availability are still forthcoming, but if you’re interested in checking out how the piece was put together, head over to the original posting at FG-Site here.
