I really dig ‘rainy-type’ days … you know, ‘days off’ or for some it’s the ‘weekend’. That’s the time when ‘figuring’ can get down ‘n dirty. Time to lock yourself in that ‘woodshed’, ‘basement dungeon’ or ‘groovy garage’ and transform into that shut-in no one wants you to be! Try out some new color concepts, design, sculpt and mold some custom parts or maybe even draw up a fresh package design concept. Yup, for the love of creating what could never be for sale on any conventional toy shelf, it’s time to talk ‘customs’ my friends!
When I customize my Micronauts and Microman figures, I usually come up with a pretty good idea of what my colors are going to be, being cautious not to pick too many colors or colors with too vibrant of chroma index where bright colors are dashing and bouncing around everywhere… so EXTREME … that is, a bright, saturated color looks can look much better when paired with a muted, ‘neutral’ toned color for balance. Then again, I own some crazy Japanese bootleg figures that are airbrushed entirely in fluorescent ‘day-glow’ colors that make your eyeballs grow radioactive hair on the back-side of your retinas… I LOVE those! So what do I know?! I digress …
