Incredible RPG Figurines Made from Twist-Ties

Recommended Videos

selectbutton forumer ionustron has a talent for making incredibly detailed, Japanese gaming-inspired figurines entirely from twist-ties.

It wasn’t like I was living in poverty. I went through the action figure crazes with all the other TV-heads. But something about the creative toys stuck more – the smaller, the better. Micro machines and Legos were the mainstays. I liked putty and play doh but they were too messy and fragile.

It should be pathetically obvious I was obsessive about video games and back in those days there was little to no budget to market toy lines for little Japanese games. When kids would write fan fiction of Scooby Doo or draw their favorite Ninja Turtle on line paper or act out the Babysitters Club, I was off in my own space alternating between a Nintendo, a Master System, or a 2600, and when the games were mostly defeated and well past the point of replay, the adventures continued on a massive wooden kitchen table.
