Edward Scissorhands a robot? Yes! The Johnny Depp's pasty, pointy fingered character began life as a robot servant to Vincent Price.
Numerous pieces went into super-articulating the basic McFarlane Edward Statue-figure:
-XMC Angel Pelvis
-Movie Ghost Rider Caretaker elbows
-Faceoff Jigsaw legs
-random ML hipjoints (Jigsaws looked too tiny)
-Scraps of jagged plastic 'fabric' from a NECA Pirates Skeleton's sash
-a bolt from my chair (used to articulate the waist)
-Leather strap from a Playarts Cloud figure
-and various other straps, and plastic bits used to add the bondage-esk detailing to Edwards newly articulated body.
-Hair jell (yep!)*
-Cut and repositioned the figure's hair so one side of Edwards face was visible
-Lots of dremmeling, and rearticulation using the hollow-out, fill with Aves sculpt, and press-in method.
* Coating the peg-joint (I.e: arm, leg, etc.) with a small amount of hair jell helps prevent the sculpt from bonding the two surfaces. I needed to keep turning each joint every few min to prevent this, but the hair jell helped.
Figure was painted with a basecoat of black Vallejo acrylic, then drybrushed with 5 layers of gray, gray-blue, and black to add variation. All buckles and metal-esk detailing was repainted from movie stills as reference.
I re-painted the face with three layers of custom mixed pale skin tone. Then, using Citadel sepiatone wash, created a sunken-in effect around the eyes, and in the ears, lips, and around his hairline. Afterward, I did a light drybrushing of a lighter pale skin tone (again, custom mixed) to blend the effect. I drybrushed a slight white-gray into the hair to bring out the detail as well.
The figure's base is an old BTVS figure base, and reminded me of the castle on the hill where Edward lived, and perhaps still does. ;)
