Riverspoons Studios Doc Emmett Brown 1885 with Jules Verne Train Time Machine Custom Pop! Ride

" Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine... out of a Hogwarts Express train?"

The winners has been finally revealed at Funko Fundays at San Diego and I am glad to announce that my work was picked as 4th Place Winner by Funko CEO Brian Marrioti out of many entries that were submitted worldwide. I am just glad to be selected as one of the winners regardless of the place. Inspired by Doc Emmett Brown, using trash as a fuel on Mr. Fusion.

For this custom, I decided to use unconventional materials - toothpicks, chopsticks, bottle of mayonnaise, headphone wires and some empty paint bottles - which for me works with how it looks. For the custom Doc Brown 1885 vinyl Pop! figure, I used the "West World" Man In Black Head and "Fantastic Beast" Percival Graves Body as the base. I added sculpted eyebrows and hair. Bowtie on the body with Apoxie Sculpt. Everything was carefully hand painted with acrylic paints. All of my efforts paid off when I saw the the whole train done the way I wanted it to be... especially after installing 890 pieces of rivets all through the train! It was truly a satisfying feeling and I am glad to finally share this piece to all of you.
