I collect a few here and there.

Yes I have bought three vinyl action figures from kidrobot's website all of which have been sold out long ago and are now hard as hell to find even on the secondary market. The two action figures I've purchased are of a cartoon character by Vaughn Bode during the 60's of a stoned wizard guru known as the Cheech Wizard:

The boxes that both Cheech Wizards came in were also sign by Kidrobot and Vaughn Bode's son.

The third action figure was designed by tattoo and legendary graffiti artist Seen (Richard Mirando). The action figure is of the Spraycan Monster and only 300 of the version in the link posted below were ever made. It was a character that was created by Seen and was used on many of his graffiti pieces in and around New York and across the world:

That's cool. I've been thinking of making a custom figure with headphones on it ... but I just don't know where to start. I don't know if I have to do any prep work on the figure or what paint I should get or any of that other stuff.

Edwood actually designed some official Transformers - I think that's right. Give us pics of the ones you made, Edwood!

As for me, I only have one Custom toy - the 1/55 Bandai reissue Takatoku "Chunky Monkey" VF-1S Valkyrie Minmay Guard from the Macross series. Customized by the fine folks over at Macrossworld. And yes it transforms to Fighter and Gerwalk modes with no problems. No, it's not a model, it's a fully functioning toy. And no, it's not a Jetfire.
