It’s a Funky Funko month for me, here’s another custom based from the iconic Batman movie way back 1989. I used the Funko Pop! Series 1 Batman as the base figure. I sculpted the eyebrow & made the nose bigger, the detachable cape was modified with the sculpted logo and shoulder details, I sculpted the body & belt as well. Really had fun shooting the figure as well. Enjoy the photos!

NOW OPEN FOR PRE-ORDER! Riverspoons Studios Funko Pop! Baby Groot & Rocket Raccoon

** Limited Release Only! 20 units only

Estimated Release:
Mid Dec 2014 or Jan 2015

Kindly inquire thru for the pricing.

Probably the cutest thing I've ever made on my customizing career :D When I first got my Funko Pop! Rocket Raccoon, I just thought it would be cool if it goes with a small Groot figure. I know it is going to be a challenge sculpting Groot from scratch, good thing the result was exactly what I have in mind.

I repainted Rocket's eye with smiling eyes, & cut off the gun away from his right hand then sculpted the remaining details. I also added blue paint on his suit which is missing on the regular one.

Riverspoons Studios John Wick 1/6th Scale Custom Figure

This is my second Keanu Reeves custom figure, it is based on the upcoming action flick “John Wick”. I rarely got a commission request with a movie that has not been shown yet. Good thing the trailer is good enough for me to review this character. Enjoy the action packed photos!

Riverspoons Studios 1/6th Scale The Flash Figure

I never owned a Flash figure in my entire life, it doesn’t mean I don’t like this character. It just happens I don’t buy his figures. I remember I was a big fan of the 1990 TV series, and now this October a brand new Flash TV Series is coming on CW. Since I already made an Arrow figure, I thought it will be cool to see these two together on 1/6 scale!

First big challenge on this figure is the headsculpt, I really have to nail his helmet, and avoid making it too big or dorky. second is the mesh fabric, it took me months to find the right texture & color. Good thing I found right color for the leatherette as well. The flash logo, thunder logos was made from scratch using apoxie sculpt. The boots is sculpted as well over an existing boots.

It was really tough making the suit, but I guess in some ways I pulled this one enough to be a decent and first ever custom Flash figure custom based on the upcoming TV series.

Riverspoons Funko Pop! Iron Man Mark 42 Battle Damaged

I usually do 1/6th scale customs, but this time I just made my first ever Funko Pop! custom. The concept was based on a scene at Mandarin’s mansion.

To make this work I have to cut out the hands to adjust its position, & sculpt the joints to make it seamless. I made the ping pong racket and battery from scratch. The figure was repainted with new tones of gold, and added more details of silver & washed with black tones.

It was a breath of fresh air working on a different line, and I can’t wait for my next one.

Riverspoons Studios 1/6th Scale Assassin's Creed II Ezio Auditore

Working on a figure based on a Videogame is a new challenge for me. I picked Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed 2 because I really liked this character, and he has a very challenging badass outfit.

This is by far the most detailed & one of the hardest custom figure I’ve ever done, from the clothing, gears & armors, all made from scratch. All clothing & leather parts were hand sewn, all armored parts & details on the gloves & boots were sculpted from scratch with apoxie sculpt.
