Quick Question

Postby Bad_Guy_Robot » Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:08 pm

Hello Realmers, I had a quick customizing question I was wondering if anyone could help me with. I’m working on a custom, off and on actually, keep rotating what I’m working on from my “in-progress” bench, and every time it comes up, I keep saying to myself, I need to post on the Realm and ask about this, but keep forgetting to. Anyway, without further unnecessary rambling, I’m using a MM Sinestro as my base figure, but need new hands for him. He has both closed fists, and I need both open hands, either like gun hands or just something that could hold a bow staff or something of the like. I’ve been through the fodder bins repeatedly but I’ve got nothing I could use. Could someone recommend a figure/line who’s hands would work and be in scale? And if anyone has a pair/knows of someone on the Trade Post that has some, please let me know. Thanks everyone! :)

Is that the smaller fig of Sinestro? IF so, they didn't make many figures in that size. Not sure, but I will do some checking for ya.

Hey thanks for replying man, sorry I should have been clearer, I'm working with the 6" scale GL Movie Sinestro, the Movie Masters one that came with the Parallax BAF:

It's about 6" scale, but the hands are small, ML won't work, so kinda stumped. All I know is maybe another GL Movie MM fig but don't have any unfortunately.

You might be right. His forearms are a tad on the skinny-as-a-rail side though lol, that's why I was asking, cause I figured other MM hands would look big compared to his stick forearms. I might could just do a lower arm down swap, it'd keep it looking more normal. Thanks man :D

Also, I think you mixed up your Blake's dude, Blake from DKR is John Blake (though turns out his first name is Robin), Donald Blake is the guy who got Thor's powers/became Thor. Lol I looked at that and was like wait, his name was Donald? No wait, Donald Blake, that was Thor. Of course every time I hear Detective Blake I keep thinking about Carter Blake from Heavy Rain lol.

Some of the newer hasbro legends have smaller hands than the older toybiz ones, also some DCUC such as Mercury and sinestro have smaller hands that could work.

Hey guys, sorry I haven't replied yet, had a lot of stuff going on lately. Anyway, thanks for everyone's suggestions, but upon looking through the fodder bin one last time before I set out to look for some of the suggested hands, I managed to find the perfect pair that I'd forgotten about. It was the pair of hands from a 6" scale Nero from the Star Trek movie, went perfectly with MM Sinestro. Anyways, just wanted to thank everyone who took the time to reply and note what I used to add another idea on here in case anyone else has this problem later on.
