For my 50th submission to this great site, I present to you all Invisible Woman. She's a BDay gift for my best pal, Osc.
I started with a 1/8 scale PVC statue of Lacus Clyne. Took her apart and gave her and the hand base a spiffy new paint job. I did not need to paint her face or eyes as I felt they were perfect. The Fantastic 4 logos are water-slide decals.
I particularly love the marble-like effect that I was able to achieve on the hand base.
Both my pal and I were disappointed when Kotobukiya increased the size of their Marvel Bishoujo statues from 1/8 scale to 1/7 scale. The 1/8 scale Marvel Bishoujo statues go perfect with Marvel Select figures. Once Kotobukiya released the newer, taller 1/7 scale Marvel Bishoujo statues, we stopped collecting them. To try and fill in some of the Marvel female characters that weren't made in the 1/8 scale, I occasionally look for 1/8 scale Manga/Anime PVC figures that can be converted to Marvel characters. As soon as I saw Lacus, I knew I had found Invisible Woman.
I've included pics of her with Marvel Select Thing, Marvel Select Dr Doom and Kotobukiya Bishoujo Dark Phoenix for scale comparison.
Thanks for looking, Realmers.
I hope you all like her.
