DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: HALCION

Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars custom action figure artist HALCION in his latest post over at The Star Wars Underworld.




6" "THE FORCE AWAKENS" STORMTROOPER created by HALCION


Last week, I introduced you all to Star Wars customs action figures inspired by the recent teaser we were all privy to the day after Thanksgiving. I had several artists on display for that feature and one artist really caught my eye.  I have only recently been introduced to his work, but HALCION has been cranking out projects at lightning speed.  I'm really impressed with what he has been putting together in the 6" scale, especially his vehicles.

Brandon Flores aka HALCION was born in Los Angeles in 1974. His late father Fernando Flores was a well known fashion illustrator who had a huge passion for toys and film, particularly Star Wars. At around 5 years old Brandon started getting curious, digging through his fathers art supplies, he discovered the X-acto blade and screwdriver, two tools that sent him spiraling out of control! He began taking apart all his toys and reassembling them into new creations. Brandon has not stopped making toys since then. He is not only limited to toy design, he also is a graphic artist, painter, and clothing designer with a huge passion for underground music and sound exploration.  His most recent works combine full scratch built vehicles, and dioramas with completely original parts adding his vision to the toys and the Star Wars universe.
