Need help with a custom Snake eyes

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello, I'm new here,
I need a few things for a Snake Eyes custom I'm making using mostly a ML Deadpool and was hoping someone could help me out. The first part is the hardest I need someone to sculpt me his visor to fit on the deadpool's head, I just can't seem to get it right I even tried using a movie cyclops visor but it just doesn't look right. I have trouble sculpting tiny things. It doesn't need to be painted, I can do that part. I prefer this version of the visor:


The second thing I need is the belts and hands from a bullseye figure, can't seem to find any bullseye's around here anymore. And the last thing is kind of tough, about a year ago I bought a mini metal katana replica from ebay, it came with a tiny wooden stand too and was the perfect size for a ML figure, I've lost it in my recent move and can't seem to find them on ebay or the web anywhere, if anyone has any info or knows a site that sells them I'd apreciate it. It came in a small white box that had "made in taiwan" stamped on it, no company name or anything.
I can pay cost plus shipping through paypal right away, or if there's a figure you're looking for let me know maybe I have or can get it for you to trade. You can check my feedback on ebay, I'm demonsight on there as well, or on the AFtimes boards, I've traded with ???man and a few others on there. Thanks!

LOL, and it doesn't even look that great. You could make them out of bobby pins like Wolvie's metal claws.

Thanks for the idea, but I did solve the sword issue. For the sword I'm using an onimusha 2 figure's sword with the handle wrapped in thin black cloth strips, so it not only looks different and neat but it fits the hand better. Then I salvaged one of the sheaths with some straps from the deadpool cut the bottom off, I also used taskmaster's belt and some straps and pouches from bullseye. And Thanks to GJ's help I now have an excellently sculpted head to top it off.

you could use a elektra sword.. then repaint it and customise the hands to fit, you could then gey some sculpy and press it around the sword so it fits, remove the sword then bake the sculpy so it sets, carve ooff all the excess sculpy and carve it into a sheath.

Well this deadpool had an acident involving my 1 year old. He ripped all of his stuff off anyway so I decided to change it around, and make a new figure. That and I found a spare on sale at KayBee last week.

those things can go for $50 on ebay why would you customize a super rare action figure like that??

Yep, always remember that you can just sand away any excess material.

Likewise I too have a working Dremel.

As far as your visor problem goes Doc had the best idea but there are other ways around that:

Use more sculpty than needed then cut it away when it becomes half dry, almost a gummy substance, then use an xacto or box cutter tho etch in the lines.

I begged my wife to get me one, that's how I got mine. Before that it was mostly exacto and sandpaper that I used.

thanks for the quick replies. For the sword I've tried cutting a piece of metal and gluing it to a hilt from a plastic sword, but it just looks cheap and falls apart, I'll probably just use a deadpool sword if I can't find the sweet mini metal ones. I got the bullseye thing sorted out already. I do have the sigma six figure but the visor is a bit too big, I'll try cutting it apart and dremel some of it down see if that works out.

If you can find a Sigma figure I think the Visor would work. If not let me know and I may be able to help you out. No Idea on the sword, infact I would like one for a Deathstroke Im making. And you can probably get a Bulseye right here on Figurerealm.

That's not too hard! Just remember that sculpting is a lot easier if you do it in steps and layers.

For example, for that visor you should sculpt the little circles and the thin basic shape of the visor. Then when that dries, sculpt on another thin layer on the first to make the ridge he has. Then you can either use something to carve out the black lines right away, or you can wait for it to harden and engrave the lines with a dremel or something. (I'm not reliable, that's why I'm not volunteering ).

I saw those katanas too! They were so cool, you could try making your own, but the hilt might be hard to make :P
