DIY Toys have created their own following over the past few years, as the amount of really good artist toys has dwindled, toy collectors have started looking to doing their own toys or getting customisers to paint the toys for them.?
The shape of the DIY toy, and the challenges posed by painting on a 3D surface rather than a flat canvas mean that many artists enjoy the struggle of converting the image in their head onto a DIY Toy
There are quite a few toy collectors who just like the collecting of blank toys and relish the thought of what the toys can become, DIY toys offer so many opportunities to turn your healthy obsession of movies into a toy character, there have been so many versions of the Clockwork Orange character, Star Wars characters are always popular, with Boba Fett always the most popular.?
Not just movies, Gorillaz the music collective done a set of figures with Kid Robot years ago, and since then there have been many rap versions appearing.

DIY Toys, blank toy just waiting for an idea!!

Take your DIY toy, slightly heat it in the microwave (be careful) and with a scalpel you can cut out bits, Dinosauria is a Glasgow based toy customizer who done a series of zombie toys, with all the rib work cut-out and the finished effect was sublime, although the time scale to achieve it was quite significant. 

??You can take Fimo clay and add bits to the basic shape, Lunartik done a travelling roadshow of artist toys, he gave his basic platform to 50 artist and let them run wild with it, the finished toys were all as different from each other as you could imagine, some of the artist added bit, some of the artists took bits away and the only limit is your own imagination.?DIY toys are a great platform where you can use your imagination to create anything you want.
