After finally overcoming a technological rebellion perpetrated by our computer and camera, Custom Corps 3 finally rolls out! This is a very special edition, bringing together two worlds that have pretty strange characters running around. Mori Katsura's central creature from his Real X Head brand is the ever changing hero Chaos. With the ability to "sample" living organisms, Chaos has been presented in many different forms. For this Custom Corps Mori and I wanted to continue our crossover which began with the creation of Pheyaos. With the assistance of the artistic powerhouse known as Lamour Supreme, the Chaos Trooper was born. Lamour and I sculpted the first version of the Chaos Trooper head and Probe Arm together, both of us infusing our admiration for Mori into those little parts. After getting approval from the main man in Japan we set to creating the molds. Huge thanks go out to master mold maker Ron Daley for building some killer molds to unleash the Chaos Troopers. With the molds ready to go, I went nuts at the shop and cast parts like crazy over a few weeks. To spice things up I also ran some older molds to round out the assortment, even resurrecting some sidelined head designs (Michelle's original design for Noboto).
The first wave of images are a portion of the clear stuff; pictures of the painted stuff will start popping up overnight and into tomorrow. This is due to having to take all the pictures again (bad bad camera). One last shout out to Don "Datadub" Kratzer for making sure that we covered all the bases and for keeping the lines of communication completely clear.
To Mori, Joel, Don, Michelle, Ron, Marc, Jesse, Megan and to all of you, thanks so much for making this Custom Corps a reality.
