In the world of custom toys, absolutely anything is possible.  Whereas companies like NECA don't have much choice but to appeal to the masses, and thus they typically stick to iconic characters like Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees (not that there's anything wrong with that!), the sky's the limit for toy customizers, who have to appeal to one person and one person only; themselves.

Every field and line of work has a person in it that does it better than anyone else, and in the world of custom toys, there is only one; Montwain Gonzales, who does his thing under the banner of One's Customs.

Rather than simply painting over existing figures, Gonzales meticulously creates small-scale versions of his favorite horror icons, sculpting heads and even stitching together clothing.  His creations range from the characters who have been immortalized as action figures many times over the years to ones that have never and probably will never, folks like My Bloody Valentine's miner, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning's Roy Burns and even Creepshow 2's Creeper.

Check out a handful of Gonzales' incredible custom figures below, and see more over on his YouTube channel and Facebook page!
