Custom Modern Era MASK RHINO With Bruce Sato

Custom-Modern-Era-MASK-Rhino---Hisstank Wait until you take a look at this custom 1/18th scale Modern Era M.A.S.K. Rhino with Custom Bruce Sato figure, created by forum member Toyphilia. It's HUGE! Using a KO Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime as the base, this piece looks factory made and has many of us wishing that Hasbro would produce more M.A.S.K. items to go alongside our Modern Era Specialist Matt Trakker Figure! From toyphilia -

This custom has all the features of the original Rhino. What seems to look like a regular 10 wheeler is actually a tank filled with surprises. From the power ram front bumpers, smokestacks becoming high powered laser cannons, doors that open, a mobile command center with a powerful spring action missile launcher, to the all terrain vehicle equipped with bulletproof shield canopy, front mounted vibration cannons and an additional missile launcher with spring action.

Custom Modern Era ARAH Rock N Roll v2 By Ska Lives

Modern-Era-Rock-n-Roll-v2---Hisstank Check out this spot on Custom Modern Era rendition of the G.I.Joe Gatling Gunner, Rock & Roll v2! Created by forum member Ska_Lives, this awesome custom piece stays true to it's original roots while giving a breath of fresh life to this fan favorite G.I.Joe character! From Ska -

I wanted to keep it as close to the original source material as possible, yet still update and tweak a few items. The harness is completely scratch built, and outside of the color and lack of grenades, is pretty spot on IMO. The side rifle was tricky. I was hoping to find an extra one in my travels, yet never did so I opted to use something from the more modern figures. I then modified a holster to hold it. The originals molded on knife is now a usable machete as well.

I had a lot of fun making this figure and I hope that you guys enjoy it as well!

Custom Spaceport Playset By Empire - Update!

Empire-Custom-Spaceport---Hisstank You may remember the absolutely amazingly Custom Spaceport Playset Diorama that forum member Empire a couple of years back...but then again, how could any of us forget? It has always been an awe inspiring piece, causing many an hour to be lost just looking over all the nooks and crannies and living vicariously through the eyes of Empire's kids.

To quote forum member Short Bus Kustoms, Empire has moved the bar off of the moon and shot it across the galaxy, into another dimension. Now no one could ever hope to reach this level of awesomeness.

From Empire -

Well, it's been a long time since I posted an update to the Spaceport. All the ebay playsets and commission pieces have kept me stupid busy but I do occasionally try to squeeze in time to dabble with the "finished" city. I tore out all the original LED strand lighting and replaced it with probably 7 or 8 sets of LED Dioder lights from IKEA. These are perfect as they are plug in so no more replacing batteries and they are bright and super thin at .25". They actually look like a ceiling light fixture. The Blue Waffle Lounge now has flashing color changing lights to give it a more night club action feel to it. I also added additional wall panels/modules and landing platforms along with more drop towers to the ceiling of the actual room this beast is in. The playset is now officially part of the house. But when you walk into that corner of the room it really does feel like you have entered a miniature city.

And yeah, I'm still working on it....

Custom Construx Cobra Terrordrome By Edgewise

Custom-Construx-Cobra-Terrordrome---Hisstank Check out this feat of engineering and imagination! forum member Edgewise created a true-to-form Cobra Terrordrome completely from Construx! In case you aren't familiar with the name, Construx were a construction style toy by Fisher-Price in the 80s. There was a TON of stuff that could be done with Construx and Edgewise has just proven that theory to be true yet again 30 years later.

From Edgewise -

It came out to be nearly the same dimensions as a real Terrordrome, though I hadn't planned that. The Firebat launch silo raises and lowers the Firebat by a winch/string, though the silo doors do not automatically open along with that. One the lower level of a real Terrordrome are 2 gun bays, and I've recreated those. There's a bay for the elevator handle and I've recreated that as a bay with the winch along with it being the 'powerplant' of the Terrordrome. There's also a stockade bay in this version. The real Terrordrome has one empty bay but in place of that I have a bay with a staircase leading to the top level. Finally the real Terrordrome has 3 vehicle bays/refueling stations. I've made 2 bays like that with a third bay being a multi-purpose bay for vehicle or troop storage.

There are over 40 images to feast your eyes on, so join us after the break to check'em out and to join the discussion already in progress!

Custom Modern Era Cobra Mega Marines Bio Viper by Tankster
