A Custom A Day.... 365 days of custom figures Day 287 - Toy Biz 5 inch Lockjaw by 4:F
Lockjaw was a very common recipe back in the late 90's. He uses a Mr. Beefy from the McFarlane Little Nicky toyline. The problem with Beefy is that he was sculpted with his leg raised as though he was peeing. I cracked it off, repositioned it and sculpted around it. His rocket firing penis is still in tact, it just doesn't fire anymore. His battery has since died so he no longer talks. The rest is paint and a little plastic scrap that I had in my parts bin for his antenna.

A Custom A Day....
I began toy collecting as a hobby back in 1990 I have always had a
need for custom figures. Toy companies begin action figure lines, begin
to release individual characters to create teams and, more often than
not leave them incomplete. Many collectors find that custom figures
pollute their collection's authenticity by not being mass produced
creations from the toy companies that created the preexisting toy lines.
I disagree. I feel a quality custom action figure enhances a
collection and help create a complete picture.
