    So a random passing thought on a guest star custom (note: I have not looked into scale or compatability of parts)

    Diamond Select Dracula body:

    Just found this thread and I have to say, you guys posting pictures are really talented! It's so cool all the work you're putting into this. Plus anybody who takes the time out to make Wayne and Wanda action figures is cool in my book.

    Hi Customers,
    can you tell me how to remove a figures head? Do I need to boil the entire figure?

    Im planning on removing the Newsmans head and replacing it with a newly sculpted Digit head and then paint the costume.

    What paints are best to use on the costume? and head?

    Hello everybody, I'm new to these boards. Although a lifelong fan of everything Jim Henson related, I never really picked up on the Palisades Muppets figures until roughly a year ago. I have been customizing Masters Of The Universe figures for a few years now and my love for Muppets made me think of the poster that was in Muppet magazine back in the 1980s where Kermit was dressed up like He-Man. So I wanted to make him, went looking for a base figure, found Kermit... long story short, my house is now full of Palisades toys.

    Anyway, when I saw this thread I felt it might be fun to share my custom here too. So here he is, He-Frog, first picture is him next to the actual poster for comparison. Second is him with a Masters Of The Universe figure.

    Hope you all like. I'm currently building his female counterpart She-Pig (or maybe Piggy Of Power - not sure how to name her yet) from a damaged Pigs In Space First Mate Piggy that I got in a lot of figures. She wasn't in any Muppets media, but I felt that He-Frog just needs a companion on the shelf. Also, when discovering this board a few days ago and seeing the awesome Dearth Nadir made by Dearth here, I really have to make him as well!

    ... I pray to Frog that he doesn't ride a muppet into battle...

    Heeeyyyy... now that's actually an intriguing idea...

    GAR, you should take a MOTU Battle Cat and repaint it to look like Gaffer, the backstage cat! Add an eyepatch and a bandage around his tail, voila!

    PS

    J3h, I love that Alice Cooper idea!

    Hey everyone, just wanted to share my FIRST attempt at Polymer sculpting EVER. I want to make my own palisades figures, but with a bit more realistic elements. I have always wanted to do Fraggles, so i thought I would test my skills on Wembly's Head....What do you think folks? I decided to use thread for hair...thoughts?
