Meet the Artist: WolverineBurger!
Continuing on with our meet the artist series, we interview another Mighty Morphin' Grody Mash-Up show customizer, WolverineBurger! Since most artists don't enjoy writing bios, I asked them each 10 questions so we can get to know them better.

2. Artist or Screen Name: WolverineBurger
3. Day job: Buy/Sell/Trade Collectibles
4. Where you live: Montpelier, VT
5. What inspired you to do mash-ups/customs? At first, just as a kid, making action figures for characters that didn't exist, or updating ones I was unhappy with. Creating my own characters for the weird little story lines in my head. Boy did I eff up a lot of toys!
6. First collectable toy? When I was about 12, I dropped two weeks' allowance on a vintage, mint on card figure from Star Wars. It was probably the first toy bought specifically with collecting and display in mind, so I'd say a line was crossed that day. (It was an ROTJ Gamorrean Guard!)
7. What do you collect now? TMNT comics/toys & other 80s/90s action figures, prototypes, Marvel comics, underground comix, original art, Glyos, sofubi, resin, vinyl records, silver coins, fanzines - maybe it'd be easier to say what I don't collect? I don't collect stamps. Stamps are boring.
9. Holy grail toy? A TMNT wax prototype or a set of Rechlen and Aves pre-Glyos resin figures.
10. If you could see a mash-up materialize in the future, what would it be? Grody Shogun needs to tackle a Glyos compatible figure or at least some custom heads!
