Love! My first Artist’s Collection Series Figures
Christmas to myself. My first special Artist’s Collection Series figures. The artist, Blayne Scott, uses pieces from various figures to obtain best fittings and joint connections as well as doing all the custom sculpting too. He’s known for his methods of reducing the circular joints which not only ensures the prevention of any paint transfers, but also gives each figure a much greater range of motion, offering more posing options not usually obtainable with manufactured figures of this sort.
Along with each figure, Blayne commissions artists to do artwork from which he gets inspiration for the figures. And, along with each figure, he writes a unique backstory, adding to the charm of each piece.
I originally found Blayne Scott and his work on etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/blaynescott
Really a nice fellow! You can learn more about him here as well: http://blaynes-customs.blogspot.com/p/about.html
My four new custom figures from Blayne Scott (sorry, some pics are blurry).
This Ren Wars Assassin Predator is beautiful. The details, the colors and he’s just elegant! Cool canon too. The handle can snap out of the back, giving it the classic actuating arm of a canon.
Wow.. the details on this guy are what got me. Tiny beading on his belt, the extra long dreads and even hand-etching in the knife blade. Too cool! I find the “half mask” on him is very interesting too.
I love the backstory of this Dragon Slayer Predator. Really neat how it ties into the world of Predator. At first, I wasn’t sure about this one. After all, there’s only one Predator with Serpent Predator’s alien-jaw bone mask style. But I love the helmet sculpt and colors. Then I realized, why not! The of those scary, creepy jaw bone masks the better! :-D
While we know Alien figures don’t change all that much, I found this Engineer Praetorian Alien intriguing simply because he’s more substantial. While he’s the same height as standard 7” figures, he’s heavier, thicker and overall larger in stature. Just as would be expected coming from Engineers. (The fourth pic shows him next to another standard figure for comparison).
I’m loving these and working on getting them set up along with frames for the artwork/backstories .
