Mighty Marvel commission by Big John Buscema -

Notice CONAN,Belit and Red Sonja delineated by the greatest comic book illustrator ever. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize for the lack of activity here over the past few months. The two originators who got the ball rolling on this great blog have taken leave. Life intervened and they moved on. I have files and e-mails from several people for several upcoming posts on my pc and waiting for me to get to them to post and share with the followers of CROM... If anyone would like to join up as a contributor here...send me an e-mail tell me about yourself and your intentions. If you're familiar with the blog then you know the tone we have set here. We run a clean and genial shop. So go ahead and contact me... I look forward to some new material from some new people. Hope to hear from you soon. ;)

Custom CONAN figures by Calvin!!!

On Tuesday, January 28, 2014 I received an e-mail and some attachments from a very special Conan fan of the highest caliber. I asked him to tell me a little about himself. So listen up followers of " CROM:The Ultimate Conan fan blog " and let me introduce you to Calvin Lo
"My name is Calvin Lo, I am 36 and am based in Hong Kong. I have been in the hobby of one sixth scale figures for 10 years. In this hobby, there are the collectors, whom by definition collect figures as they come out of the boxes, and there are the customizers, whom like me, like to modify things, mess around with new materials, chopping things up and glue them back to gather to make our own versions of a movie or game character.
I became a full time customizer a year ago and have been taking commissions since, my commission projects range from the highly popular Conan the barbarian series to Star Wars The Old Republic series, and recently I have expanded to two other well known franchises Diablo 3 and Cats the musical. Apart from one sixth scale figures, slowly I am collecting 1:18 scale (3.75") figures, which are something that I grew up with, and the reason I love one sixth, cause of the whole G.I.Joe thing back in the 80s when I was a kid. The thing with 1:18 is that, it is relatively cheaper and much easier to make a diorama with tanks and planes and stuff, which for one sixth, would be much more difficult to make a shoot like that.
The fun part with both hobby is that, you get to be like the director of a film, you cast the characters, you costume them, paint them like make up artist, then direct all the actions, lighting and final presentation, which is an extremely satisfying and creative process :)
The thing with Conan, for me is that Arnold has been my idol since forever, and like many fans, I have been waiting for big companies to produce figures of him from Conan the movies and Commando, but so far only The Terminator has been made in 1:6 & 1:4 scale. Then came several commissions for Commando and Conan last year, I am starting to getting more and more interests for them lately. Well, enough for now and thanks so much!

CONAN @ EIGHT- BIT NERDS

I found this at a site/blog called "Eight-Bit Nerds" It makes for a nice graphic...not certain who the artist is...but there is an identifying signature on the piece.
