Millennium Falcon Guitar

Star Wars fans are some of the most creative people I have ever met. Once again, I’m blown away with the Millennium Falcon Guitar. Travis S. built a guitar using a toy Millennium Falcon ship. The guitar plays music, and even lights up! Urlesque.com has a great interview with the creator along with some additional photos of the guitar.

Essential Seven Tools Every Customizer Needs

Manufactured toys aren’t perfect. As much as companies try, they can’t satisfy everyone. That where customizing comes in. We fans can modify a figure to suit our individual tastes. Whether it’s as simple as repainting or completely sculpting a figure from scratch, customizing can solidify your collection as “yours”, and hobbies are proven to reduce the risk of heart disease. This doesn’t happen by magic, though. You need the right tools for the job.

This weekend at the Steel City Con I parked near a truck decked out to look like the George Barris Batmobile. The owner of this truck is clearly a fan of Batman. The truck has every detail of the Batmobile, including the hood air intake, Bat symbols on the door, and rear wing spoilers. The back even has the jet engine.

An Interview with Mari Kasurinen creator of the My Little Pony Customs

Last week we posted an article artist Mari Kasurinen’s custom My Little Pony figures. She has created some very unique customs that are really fun. I contacted Mari, because I was curious about  how the idea to customize My Little Pony toys came to her. Here is the interview:

MillionairePlayboy: What is your art education /  background? Did that help you with your toy customizing?

Mari Kasurinen: I’ve done art all my life, I was 5-years-old when I first said that I wanted to be an artist when I grow up. I applied to Taideinstituutti, an art university in Lahti 2007 and got in. Before that I practiced by myself. Of course it helps, all though I feel that everything you learn in life affects in many areas. Expecially in art!

MPB: What artists (painting, drawing, sculpture, ect…) inspire you?

MK: My favorite artists at the moment are Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Outi Heiskanen.
