Artist Name: Figment
Custom Name: Team Super Awesome Art
Artist Contact:www.facebook.com/teamsuperawesomeart

With this years Figment theme, it makes perfect sense to have some Figment Vinylmation customs and I love the fully sculpted horns, tale, wings, and toes, plus the fact that he also comes with his an imagination light bulb!

Artist Name: Vinylmation Customations by Heather
Custom Name: Imagination Gala 9″
This beautiful 9″ Vinylmation featuring Figment would be an excellent addition to anyone’s collection especially if you’re lucky enough to be at the event.

Artist Name: Crazy4Vinyls Customs by Josh Edwards

With this years Vinylmation event featuring an awards ceremony theme, Josh took that idea and created these great Vinylmations featuring many classic Disney characters as gold figures.  Its such a simple idea and with many of this years RSP items such as Figment and Snow White having the same style, these will fit in perfectly.

And saving my favourite for last, I love this custom, it presents both the Imagination Gala and Vinylmation perfectly, its simply amazing and completely unique.

And Jennifer also shared this image of some fantastic Imagination Gala themed vinyls that she will be giving away. So check out her Facebook page for more details.

Artist Contact:http://jchad1000.wix.com/jchad82

Justin emailed me with this photo of his latest custom, a 9″ Red Monorail featuring the Hitchhiking Ghosts, this custom has two of my favourite park items in one lovely custom. The idea that the Hitchhiking Ghosts have hitched a ride on the monorail is fantastic and fits in perfectly with the 45th Anniversary of the infamous attraction.

Artist Name: Consuelo Celeste Delgado‎

The moment I saw this Custom, I knew I had to give it a shout out, I just love the bright colours and the unique take on the Vinylmation mold, its very bright and has plenty of sparkles. I don’t usually like cute things, but this looks extremely impressive and I can’t wait to see more of Consuelo’s work.


10452889_717812587315_1989300360261310271_o
Artist Name: Jared Flores‎
Custom Name: Abu

Jared’s work continues to impress me, this figure just looks another masterpiece and could easily be a mass-produced Disney figure, the design is just perfect and captures Abu perfectly.

And I thought I’d leave one of the best customs I’ve seen in ages for last, this custom blew me away, this custom shows how creative artists can be and how the Mickey mold can be used in a way by custom artists that just wouldn’t be possible with mass produced items. The molding of the dragon is simply amazing and I love how Mickey is standing on the base, recreating a scene from Fantasmic and with the added bonus of having light up LED’s, its truly fantastic!

Artist Name: Amber Gonzalez
Custom Name: Canadian Oswald

First to feature today is Amber Gonzalez, with her Canadian Oswald 3” piece, created for Marcel Despres! I personally like Oswald’s wink, and his moose plushie, which was created from clay.

Custom Name: Spyro

Next up is Spyro from Jason Cracraft-Windell. This Spyro custom is amazing, I personally love the detail that has gone into the horns and claws, as Spyro the Dragon for PS1 was one of my favourite games!



Artist Name: Team Super Awesome Art
Custom Name: Guardians of the Galaxy

Jenny sent me some details on some new Guardians of the Galaxy customs that the Super Awesome team have done and with the movie coming out this week and all the Infinity 2.0 news, these two figures just jumped out at me. Especially Groot.


10492203_707779235925256_7146720862389974311_n

Artist Name: Paul Dartt
Custom Name: Joker Woody

While this is only in progress, we love seeing Disney Infinity customs and Paul has shared an image on our Infinity & Beyond group of his Joker Woody figure, though its not fully finished yet, the detail looks amazing.

FrozenAnnaFrostedVariant.jpg

Artist Name:Craig Larson
Custom Name:
Artist Contact: https://www.facebook.com/CustomVinylmationsbycrglrsn

This custom is a variant of Craig Larson’s ‘Frosted’ variant of his original take on Frozen’s Anna. I’ve got to say, it’s an amazing figure. Being a fan of the Frozen movie, this figure has phenomenal detail. The cape, Anna’s hair and the body work is stunning. Great work, Craig!


image(1)Artist Name: Deanna Fiers

Custom Name: Baby Anna & Elsa

Here’s a picture of Anna and Elsa as they were at the beginning of Frozen. These two figures are from Deanna Fiers, an art major who likes to test her ability on 3D figures. Another great entry, with great detail on the face, arms, head and ears of the figures. Wonderful!


10561708_10204309245108402_1586249469783947568_n

Artist NameJennifer Bednarski
Custom Name: Anna & Elsa

Continuing on with some more Frozen customs (anyone else notice a theme to this week, its like almost like Frozen is popular!).  This custom of Anna and Elsa caught my eye and I love the level of detail that has gone into the faces, simply beautiful.


10376722_10203896779648887_4056293276604979547_n

Artist Name: Justin C. Yanez Marshall
Custom Name: Thunder Mountain Dale

To celebrate this weeks Big Thunder Mountain anniversary, this custom was something I instantly loved.  I am a huge Chip & Dale fan and the Big Thunder Mountain is one of my all time favourite rides, put them together with an Ice Cream and you have the perfect custom Vinylmation!

Artist Name: Honey Bond
Custom Name: Spider-Man

When Honey showed off her latest 9″ Vinylmation custom, I did a “ooooh” sound, not only did she get to meet the legend that is Stan Lee and get him to sign this, but the detail on the custom is amazing!  It just fits on the mold so well, using the body as a canvas rather than doing a straight up Spider-Man design.  I’m a huge Spidey fan and this was an instant “shout out” for this week.  Simply fantastic.


10409599_1653305408228041_3963372854016424408_n

Artist Name: Brendan Fix
Custom Name:  Wood-carved Buzz Lightyear

This design is very different, the wood carved aspect of the figure made it stand out to me, I can’t quite put my finger on what caught my eye but that’s never a bad thing, its does show why custom work can go to Infinity & Beyond (yes I did just type that!)


10525644_10152294216278920_2148198411154695966_n

Artist Name: Mike Vetrone
Custom Name: Rice Killers
Artist Contact: www.facebook.com/customsbymikevetrone

I’ve been a big fan of Mike Vetrone’s work for a long time and his work never disappoints but when I saw this image of this trio from the Rice Krispies cereal as part of the Inkbombers Cereal Killers event, I knew this had to be given a huge shout out.  I love the level of detail that’s gone into this and its also nice to see something unique and different.

53757_714988097615_394168793009538838_oArtist Name: Jared Flores
Custom Name: Goliath

I have featured Jared Flores’s work on many occasions on this site and there is a very simple reason for this, he has a unique style that is his own and he simply does an amazing job at creating awesome designs.  I love how Jared has added sculpted body parts like the head and the feet to do something truly different from anything I’ve seen before.

Artist Name: John Ward
Custom Name: Haunted Mansion Stretched Portraits

While I was scrolling through our Artists Unleashed Facebook Group, I came across this impressive collection of 9″ Vinylmation which represent the Stretched Portraits from the Haunted Mansion ride and even though I haven’t seen the front of these, I instantly felt I had to give John a shout out for some impressive work.  He has managed to capture the portraits extremely well and used the 9″ to its full potential, something that is too squashed on the 3″ mold.


10491180_750420038329424_6078616622868725943_n

Artist Name: Are Jay
Custom Name: Firecrackers
Artist Contact:www.arejaydesigns.storenvy.com !

I’ve always been a big fan of Are Jay’s work, he has a great style and these figure could easily have been a official Vinylmation release, the art work looks very crisp and clean, I just love the idea and the Oswald is a stand out figure but the whole series looks very impressive.


10405645_706333730964_2613468704589549555_n

Artist Name: Ryan Branoff
Custom Name: Blueprint Epcot Centre
Artist Contact: www.facebook.com/customvinylmationryanbranoff

The blueprint custom crazy continues as Ryan Branoff revealed his 9″ Epcot Centre, ever since the original blueprint Mickey Mouse wasn’t officially released as part of the Urban series (even though there is a large display within Epcot showing the figure off), blueprint customs continue to sell extremely well and this one stood out to me as having a slight twist on the idea that impressed me.


10478657_10204181194108992_4411762431706949044_nArtist Contact: www.facebook.com/jdscrystalcustoms

Every now and again, I see something that catches my eye that doesn’t fit under the norm, custom artist Jeremy Sandheinrich showed off some custom Pop Vinyls and Mystery Mini’s that feature crystals, customising existing figures with these crystals.  Its certainly a interesting take on custom work and very effective.

Artist Name:  Jared Flores
Custom Name: Recent Hatbox Ghost 3

I’m a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion and a big fan of Jared Flores, which means when I first saw this Vinylmation, I was instantly impressed, this figure looks simply fantastic.  Jared has a unique style that instantly jumps out and I think this custom is simply amazing.


Tom-2014Artist Name: Tom Shultis
Custom Name: “Ka-Chow!!”

This Vinylmation on the 95 Lightening McQueen mold is an amazing piece of work and its for a very good cause, this Vinylmation will be available through our own Auction House Facebook Group this weekend as part of the special event to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.  I’ve always been impressed with Tom’s work due to his airbrushing skills.  And I just love the 95 mold, especially with this patriotic look.

Artist Name: Amber Gonzalez
Custom NamePopcorn Figments for Kristen Bevacqua-Walsh

As a big fan of the Popcorns line, these instantly jumped out to me as an imaginative way of using a different mold to show off the fantastic Figment.  Amber Gonzalez also has a unique style and these have a great cartoon aspect to them.


10385407_504644006303778_1777067190322830787_n

Artist Name: Josh Edwards
Custom Name: Tarzan

This figure jumped out at me, Josh has done a great job of capturing 3 characters on a single figure and this design would have been amazing on a 9″ mold, this is one figure that the lucky owner will have to keep rotating in their collection to show off both the front and the back which both feature amazing detail.

This classic character from the movie Frozen has been captured perfectly on the Vinylmation mold and using the stretched out four armed body really adds an extra element to this character and I love the level of detail that’s gone into his jacket.

Artist Contact:https://www.facebook.com/VinylmationCreationsofJenBednarski

This Lion King Vinylmation is simply stunning and has a unique twist by using both sides of the Vinylmation to show a different angle and I love how she has positioned the arms so both the back and the front both have a arm, looking like they are hugging.  Lovely.

Artist Contact: www.facebook.com/customsbymikevetrone

I love this figure and its been done to raise money for the Wounded Warrior project, this figure looks better than the official Independence Day Goofy in my eyes, Mike has got a unique style that captures Disney so well and honestly, this is of a high enough quality to be an official Disney design.

I’m a huge Transformers fan and this one instantly jumped out at me, I love the Autobot’s logo in the ear and there is so much attention to detail on the whole figure, it has a cartoon feel to it and manages to fit the Mickey mold so perfectly.

This is a beautiful Vinylmation featuring the very popular Elsa from Frozen, this figure just screams attention to detail, the small snowflakes, the hair sculpting and the overall finish sets this one apart.

This Custom Vinylmation just blew me away when I first it, there is so much detail on this figure and how Jared has sculpted the head to show the features of the T-Rex is simply amazing.

Artist Name: Alex Gonzalez

Alex is just 16 years old and sent me this photograph of two customs along with this explanation:

I’m not an artist, I’m not very good and i have so much fun painting Vinylmation. My dream is been like Noah, Enrique Pita or Josh Edwards in the future. I painted about 20 or 30 Vinylmation for commission and i want to show you my favorites Vinylmation, Donald and Mickey dressed like Haunted Mansion.

One thing I love about custom Vinylmation is how it can inspire people to start painting and experiment, I’m sure with lots of practice, we will be seeing much more of Alex’s work in the future.

Artist Name: Josh Edwards
Custom Name: Donald and Daisy as Las Vegas Showducks

This one tickled me, the sight of Donald Duck dressed in drag isn’t something we are going to see on an official Vinylmation but this one is just a great idea that continues to show how custom artists have the ability to step outside the box.

My Dad has been involved in Lifesaving for over 40 years ago, so I grew up on the beach and the minute I saw this Vinylmation, it put a little smile on my face and for that reason alone, I had to include this in my weekly Custom shout out.   The accessories and the sunscreen on the nose just top this one off perfectly.

Artist Contact: http://F1shcustoms.wordpress.com

I know I featured another one of Joey’s Vinylmation customs last week, but when I saw this, I just thought it looked amazing, by using the wheelchair custom accessory and splitting the body up to put the feet into a different position is a fabulous idea and having just seen Days of Future Past this past week, this one just leaped out at me.

Artist Contact: www.MarkHoffmann.com

I’ll admit, I’ve been completely blown away by Frozen and those damn songs have been in my head for months now, so seeing this amazing 9″ custom featuring the two sisters is truly beautiful work.  This is what the 9″ mold is made for, using it as a canvas and Mark has done an amazing job with this masterpiece.

I’ve been a fan of Reign Design’s for a while and this Oswald 9″ Vinylmation just jumped out at me on my Instagram feed.  While the design is pretty simple, it works perfectly with this figure and adding the tail and long ears make this one a excellent addition to any Oswald fans collection.
