Custom of the Week: Visser Three

[tweetmeme source=”rebeccaenzor” only_single=false http://rebeccaenzor. com/2012/07/29/custom-of-the-…k-visser-three]

I have to admit, when I first saw today’s pony I had no idea where it came from. But it looked so cool that I had to show it to you guys. Plus, it’s rare to see a G2 custom (Generation 2 were the freakishly thin ponies Hasbro tried – unsuccessfully – to reboot the franchise with in the 90s). After a quick Google search I found out that Visser Three is the main antagonist in the Animorphs series. 

I love the bug eyes! How totally cool is that?

  1. HAH! I read the Animorphs as a kid. When I first saw the title, I didn’t recognize it though. Now it’s coming back to me, lol. I don’t know what everyone has against the G2s; I like them.

  2. Heh, that’s a good attempt. Though really, they should’ve make it blue (the females were purple) and with no mane. Loving the little symbol though. Yeerk. ^_^

    Can you tell I was a total animorphs nut? I still own the series (under my bed). Though I was so disappointed by the ending.

    1. Hm, true, he would have looked better more blueish, but I couldn’t find just the right paint, so purple it was. 😄 As for the mane and the rump design…well, this was a Visser Three pony…not an actual Andalite, so he’s a kind of mashup. 😄 No arms, either. I may someday try an actual Andalite pony.

    2. PS–I was a bit disappointed at the ending, too. But I see where the author wanted to go so I guess I understand lol

    3. Ahh me too! I was such a huge fan of the books as a kid. I never saw the show until recently. This is the first Andalite custom I have ever seen, and so uniquely clever they chose Visser Three. I am totally going to make an Ax as my next custom!!

  3. Awesome!!! My daughters and I read the Animorph series together, so I knew exactly what you meant by Visser 3! We also watched the TV series; quite well done, actually. 🙂

    1. Somehow I missed out on both the book and the tv series for this one, although I remember what the covers looked like. Even as a kid my tbr pile was too big to get through 😛

      1. I loved the Andalite Chronicles. I crushed on him a bit too but until it was revealed he was (spoiler?) Tobias’s father. I think my girl crush was mostly with Marco, Tobias, and Ax. Hmm I may have been a book tramp 😛
