If you're in to collecting resin figures, you're bound to have heard of Mad Joe Customizer and/or Overkill Creations. If you haven't...you're missing out. Mad Joe works mainly in resin – hand sculpting and hand casting most of his creations. (He got that name by creating custom kits for 3 3/4” G.I. Joe figures)
We were lucky enough to get one of Mad Joe's limited edition Ick Monster figures to review. This is one of only two Beastman Ick Monster colorways out there. It does use the same mould as other Ick Monster resins that Mad Joe has released.
Beastman Ick Monster
Series: Ick Monster
Manufacturer: Overkill Creations
Artist: Mad Joe Customizer
Sculpted by: Mad Joe Customizer
Dimensions: 6.5” tall
Points of Articulation: 2 (arms)
Outfit: Faux fur vest and loincloth
Edition Size: 2 pieces
It's a handmade figure that was packaged in bubble wrap for shipping.
Resin has really come a long way over the past year. I might even say that it has leapfrogged vinyl as the material of choice. Artists can make small run figures at home (no shipping to/from China) and have more control over the final product. Mad Joe Customizer has a pretty nice setup for creating resin figures...and he's released a number of them.
The Ick Monster piece is very solid. It stands in at 6.5” tall with articulated arms. Usually, when you think of resin, you think of an unarticulated statue. The movement in the arms is a great addition to the Ick Monster sculpt.
