Moody Custom by Erwin Weber (The Netherlands)

This impressive, well-executed, custom comes from the creative mind of talented graphic designer Erwin Weber from the Netherlands. The 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Moody' custom is a tribute to Erwin's childhood heroes. Erwin's other work includes illustration, logo design, web design and, of course, vinyl toy customs. One of his designs, 'Trexi Racer', was selected by Play Imaginative for their Series 2 set of blind box, 3-inch toys. www.erwinweber.nl.

'Moobot' Moody Custom by Dan 'Wavedog' Fenelon (United States)

The 'Wavedog' continues to push the boundaries with his unique, colorful and detailed customs. 'Moobot' is Dan's 3rd, and in my opinion, most impressive Moody custom. Although Dan works in a variety of mediums, his unique painting style is perfectly suited to platform toys. His art was featured in an in-depth article in the August Playtimes Magazine - http://www.wavedog.com/2news/platime.htm. Definitely check out his site to see more art from this prolific and talented artist. www.wavedog.com.
