TMNT Classic April O'neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:45461
Name:TMNT Classic April O'neil
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Date Added:December 23, 2012
Base Figure:Ann O'Brien
Height:7.00 inches
I always wanted to do April. Since i was a kid watching the cartoon.
Ok, that said, I also always wanted to make an April custom figure :)
Those 2, April and Shredder, hold very great emotional importance for me, you see, Shredder and April were my first custom figures when i was like 8 (Shredder was a he-man with a rambo enemy guy that had a cloth thing on his head and April was Cheetarah)
So, since the world was supposed to end, i had to come full circle and make those 2 :)

April was a Legendary Legends..hmm, that doesn't sound, oh, heroes Ann O'Brien, for her size. However, Ann is quite tall and muscular, so i used her height, but i had to re-sculpt her everything to be in scale (interesting how i always "have to" re-sculpt everything XD)
Even things i wasn't planning to (or even shouldn't): most of her joints! (remember kids, never compromise the joints - well, unless you're an adventurous fella that cries every custom thinking that this time, it will be ruined beyond salvation)

Anyway, if you wanna know specifics about the joints, feel free to ask (i don't wanna make this longer that it already is)

I made a cast of the base, wrote her name on it, and made her a camera, her mic and a working turtle communicator (so she can find them when she got her crew - no, not working, working, it opens and closes :)

yeah, i didn't sculpt on her hands >_< it's MOTUC

Wow bro this is really good. I love her facial expression. Why didn't you enter this into the contest along with the Shredder? This is really just perfect. I can only hope when and if Playmates releases theirs, that it'll be as good as this one.

Unreal Grunge. Did you sculpt her face? If so that is pure talent. I mean it is anyway. Question, I recently tried an April and didn't want to lose articulation in the legs but upon doing so mine has the Ronald McDonaldly hips. Did you lose any leg articulation? And your pieces come out so well I think you should record the steps and process and put them on Youtube. Or just make seperate "tips" vids. This is amazing work.

yeah, I did, I'm proud of it
I must confess I had to search for ronald and look at him for a while to understand what you mean...I don't XD
gotta see what you're talking about
find me on fb, I'm Hugo Dourado, the good looking one
I guess I could explain a bit of the process with images, if not with pictures, maybe I could draw some schematics XD

Dude, this is epic!

Both the custom job (love the somewhat sassy facial expression) and the great photos with the other figures!
grungethemovie -
Saturday, December 29, 2012
YES! thank you! the sassy smile is my contribution to her, I think she wouldn't really look like that in the cartoon, but I wanted an unblunt expression that would represent her kinda nosy personality
sorry if I cannot explain myself better XD

grungethemovie -
Monday, December 24, 2012
I know that sounds crazy everytime someone asks, but I sculpted her everything
oh no! I'm a liar, I should edit the recipe, her hands are MOTUC, no sculpt there

Aww that's nice!! The head is perfect, the hair exceptional. Nice work here man!
grungethemovie -
Monday, December 24, 2012
thank you!
though I'd say I did follow the cartoon a bit loosely on her, she's very me, I mean, super very almost a bit anime, you could say she's supposed to look like peter chung's intro
