The Custom Action Figure & Modeling Guide by Zartanman

terror-drome-cobra-custom Jeremy Davis AKA Zartanman has been making custom action figures professionally since 1996. He has been an action figure collector since 1977 with the conception of the Star Wars Kenner figures. As a child Zartanman was a huge G.I. Joe collector and fan.

The Custom Action Figure Guide will walk anyone step-by-step through creating custom action figures and vehicles. The guide will cover painting, sculpting, casting parts, kitbashing, adding lights & sounds as well as creating dioramas and custom stands. This guide will focus heavily on 4in Joe Scale action figures but will also include Transformers, Vehicles and other popular action figure genres.

The guide will be in .pdf format and the donation amount for the PDF guide is only $5. For $25 you can gain access to the optional tutorial videos, the videos will cover each chapter of the book as well as many projects that will be step-by-step from start to finish.

This customizing guide is something Zartanman has been wanting to create for over five years. Zartanman is currently finishing up his Bachelors degree and will be looking to enter the workforce again soon.

However his ultimate goal is to start a Toy & Game business known as Tesseract Toys & Games. Zartanman hopes that by starting small with this campaign he can get some of the funds necessary to start his business.

The Money from Kickstarter will be used to create and finish many of the projects that will be used as Tutorials for creating this book. As well as put towards the start of Tesseract Toys & Games.

If this campaign is successful there will be more to follow to help launch Tesseract Toys & Games.

Once this project is completed Tesseract Toys will be hosting tutorial videos on their website for a monthly subscription fee of $5.00 per month. However, anyone who is a contributor to the Kickstarter Campaign of $25 or more will receive a lifetime free membership to the tutorials. Zartanman intends to host one new tutorial per month.

Wall Street Journal Showcases Larry Hama

NY-CX703_NYHAMA_G_20140328164515 The Wall Street Journal has posted a piece on Larry Hama. The article's focus is on The new Marvel Novel, Death of Captain America. Here is a brief clip from the article:

Larry Hama is a mild-mannered, 64-year-old comic-book writer, editor and illustrator—but he has the résumé of 10 men.

Born in Queens, he studied judo, archery and swordsmanship as a child. He got into comic books at age 16 and has worked on such well-known characters as Batman, Wonder Woman and Wolverine, though Mr. Hama is best known for spearheading Hasbro's official G.I. Joe comics in the 1980s (there's even a character named Tunnel Rat who looks like him).
