Hey, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there is a guy stealing photos, applying Photoshop filters and claiming them as original art made by him for profit. One of the images he has stolen is yours, specifically this action figure photo. I encourage you to look through his galleries to see if he's stolen anything else of yours as well as report him on FB, DeviantArt and Kickstarter for copyright theft.

Here's a direct link to your stolen work -…


FB page…; (There are a LOT of images here)

Kickstarter for his "art" book (currently down due to multiple DCMA notices file by other owners of stolen worK)…

Thanks for the heads up, looks like he's already been suspended.

Your welcome, my friend. You did the definitive Conan figure.

I was looking for some figures at and i saw your custom there. You said that you used a Randy Orton figure. Is it really 7,5 inches tall. I'm looking for a figure to do a custom of a really big guy, so it would be perfect. Is this figure really that big, if your answer is positive, i'm getting one to use as a base. Do you know other tall figure like that and that (excluding Big Show, Great Khali, Andre, etc)

Sorry if i'm making too much questions, but i need help, and you are a very good customizer.

Yes, that is the actual size and there are more WWE figures the base figure is from Jakks Pacific I think, although they lost the contract with WWE and a different company is making them now at a slightly smaller scale. Thanks for looking!

I'm a Conan fan and thought the new movie was pretty cool!
Not a fan of schwarzeneggers Conan either.

I just thought this Conan looks more like the one in the books so that's a plus for me!
And you can understand what he says :P

Very nice figure!!!!! Good job!!

Thanks for looking! Yeah the new movie definitely had the right look, (Momoa definitely looked the part) and a lot of the right visual elements were in place, it just needed a different director. Marcus Nispel's known for his visual style, (see Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, Pathfinder) but it takes more than a music video director to tell a good story. There has never been an accurate Conan movie, it's too bad that everyone wants to put their own mark on the Conan franchise instead of paying homage to Robert E. Howard's original stories.

Yeah you're absolutely right! I am currently reading the Conan comic series published by Dark Horse and I just CAN'T understand no one makes that into a movie or serie! It's Brilliant!!!! I love Conan and i am feeling a lot for a series, based on the Conan comics i just mentioned, played by Jason Momoa. Now all we need is the right director! Could be the most wanted HBO serie!

He looks like the guy from the newest movie, which I have yet to see.

Thanks for looking! The new movie is O.K. (if you are not a Conan fan)

Very well made, We do need more Conan figures.

Customizing takes a lot of time, which is at a premium for me these days...but I suspect there will be more Conan stuff coming from me sometime in the future.

But i think it is in the wrong category.
Shouldn't it be in : Artisan Crafts > Custom Dolls ?
