Why the heck not. I’ve been wanting a new custom by Phil for a while now; just had to wait to collect the parts. This Astropirate used to be a Rainy Day Pirate (body) and Rainy Day Skullwing (head) with the arm from a Clear Pirate/Captain thrown in to give him something to drink. The only direction I gave him was ‘spanish yellow’. The rest was all him. I can’t wait to get this gentleman home and put him with the rest of the crew!
My buddy Phil is a standup guy.
One of the nicest folks I’ve met in the toy collecting game (Along with Pat, Ed, Michael, Mikee, Tony) who also happens to be a really talented customizer/painter and who occasionally does his magic on Pushead toys…. I’m going to take a break from my standard MY Pushead Addiction content- pieces that I own- and feature a few of his kickass custom jobs. Some of these have been sold, others are still available. Best way to know for sure if something is for sale is to swing by his webstore and check out the goods!
My collection is severely lacking in Skullwings; with even less custom painted pieces.
I was able to remedy that tonight by finally scoring a custom painted SW by Philly’s own HelloPike. If you scroll through my links section you’ll see a link to his custom sale site Lunatic Fringe. All of his custom work is great, but his Skullwings are always top notch.
We’re going to meet up tomorrow for the sale, then this guy pictured above (shamelessly stolen from Phil’s site) will be a part of my collection.
