Indie Toys + Vintage Grooviness = 5mmToyhacker customs

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I decided to work on customs that bridge indie toys and the vintage robot aesthetics. This is the first in the series using Gylos compatible heads from Ni-Stuff and Micronauts.

This is my 2nd toyhack that mixes Indie toys and vintage grooviness. Sea-Borgs figures are by Monsterpants. If you look closely you will recognize parts of Energon, Cybertron, Diaclone in the mix.
