Custom Zartans Lair G.I.Joe x He-Man Crossover Playset By Kevin Breaux

As if the Fury Force offerings weren’t cool enough, check out this amazing He-Man x G.I.Joe Crossover Custom Zartan’s Lair by Mr. Kevin Breaux! Not only is Kevin an award winning Author & Artist, he also runs the Castle BroSkull Blog where you can see this piece and other custom awesomeness! 

Using an original Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull as a base, Kevin added amazing detail to this piece. If you take a look, you’ll see: 

  • Actual Leather on the Skull to simulate the look of the Dreadnok Logo
  • A sculpted moat that holds water
  • Working lights
  • A lounge area to enjoy grape soda and donuts, of course
  • The Throne of Dread, Zartan’s domain
  • So much more

From The BroSkull Blog: This was a big job for me. I was approached to make a Dreadnok style Castle Grayskull. I immediately had an amazing idea. I wanted to make Zartan’s Swamp Lair. And I knew just how to transform the Castle Grayskull to make it work. I don’t want to reveal all my secrets. But….I used gravel, leather, sand, stickers, paint, lights, treasure chests, jewels, and MUCH MORE!

Ninja Force Zartan!

Check out this sweet custom Ninja Force Zartan by ska_lives!

So, here is part 1 of the recent set of figures a friend has asked me to make for him; Ninja Force Zartan. This figure was pretty simple to assemble, but had some surprising difficulties when assembling some of his accessories and details. The mohawk and jacket shoulder pads are sculpted on with green stuff, while the chain is an actual craft chain primed and painted. Im pretty happy about how this figure turned out. There are a couple spots that I need to go back and touch up now that I see the photos, mostly in the green areas, but all in all Im pretty happy.

Recipe:
Head: ROC Zartan w/ sculpted Mohawk
Torso/ upper arms/ Upper legs: POC Desert Storm Shadow
Lower arm right: POC Desert Storm Shadow w/ sculpted arm guard
