Jin Saotome's Dangerous Toys! Custom action figures, Marvel Legends, Skylanders, Transformers, GI Joe, and customizing guides


Welcome to my site Jin Saotome's Dangerous Toys. It features hundreds of custom action figures from
lines like Marvel Legends, Halo, GI Joe, DC Universe, Marvel Universe, as well as characters from all
sorts of video games and movies. Customizing involves taking parts from other action figures, combining
them with your own personal touches, and creating a brand new figure. There are guides and tutorials
here to help you learn how to make your own custom action figures and a large custom action figure
gallery with detailed write-ups of parts used for each custom action figure. Check out the Customizing
Links section for all sorts of information, forums, and products related to the hobby. Enjoy your stay!

Recent Custom Action Figures

The thumbnails of custom figures below are ones I've created recently in the last month or so. Check my Ebay auctions to see which ones are currently up for sale this week. Sometimes I make extras but usually they're one of a kind. Check the Custom figure gallery and you'll find the entire list of all my customs made since the beginning. They're in alphabetical order and categorized. Email me if it's an older figure you're looking at and want to know how I made it. Please note I do not take commissions at this time. Any updates on commissions will be posted in the future.

A quick word about the ads here. They're actually USEFUL ones! You know how you'll be browsing a site about Transformers and suddenly see that you can get a discount on your next manicure or where to purchase an aboveground pool? Not here. All the advertisers I list here, I shop from. I won't send you to any fishy online stores. Do a search for Transformers on Walmart, I snag all sorts of great deals and older Transformers figures pop up there all the time. Need a set of Marvel Legends figures? Hit Entertainment Earth, they have complete sets at retail prices so you won't need to hunt for that missing BAF part. If you're stuck in the middle of nowhere like I am, online stores are a lifesaver!


General- Order the Latest Marvel Collectibles!

While I'd love to take commissions for custom figures, I just don't have the time to make them for everyone. Right now I'm only selling my custom figures through Ebay, so check my auctions link at the top every week to see if there's a custom figure of mine you want to bid on. This is the best way I can play it fair to give everyone a chance at one of my pieces. Want to suggest a figure I should make? Want to critique my work? Got questions on how to customize something? Just drop me an email!
