Punstarr's Ranma 1/2 figs

Posted in Custom Workstation

Well I was told to share them here since I still need to repair or touch them up for the most part...

I'll start with the ones that need the least amount of touching up. All of the hair you see is sculpted out of modeling clay.

This is my favorite, the one I'm the most proud of... Shampoo.




My second favorite (as far as results go) is Akane. Her dress is actually paper mache and P-Chan is all clay. His ears need to be remade (they broke off years ago).



(Sorry about the flash here btw)



My 3rd favorite (in how it turned out) was Mousse here.



The flash makes his shirt look white instead of yellow, but I assure you Ryoga's colored the way he should be. (My personal favorite character on the show btw)



Happosai was just plain fun to make. He's made entirely from clay, his bag is paper mache and the bra he's holding is cut from a paper towel.




Genma is likewise all clay, but his ears are missing. They need to be remade.



This is Kodachi, the Black Rose.



Here's girl type Ranma. Her pigtail broke at the end so it needs to be redone and touched up.



Here's boy type Ranma. I was never really pleased with him. He seemed too bulky for the character, but it's the fig I had to work with at the time. You can see his shoulder is cracked and needs to be reworked. He used to be holding a kettle, but lord knows where that ended up. You can still see the remnants of the kettle's handle on his had.



Nabiki... oy. She's made from a Lady Deathstrike fig and I was never happy with how tall she ended up, nor how the bands on the legs look.



Finally we have Kuno, who looked ok but a part of the clay comprising his kimono broke entirely off! Bleah I'll have to do that part over again... as for his bokken, it's gotten so bent over the years I'm just gonna toss it and carve one out of real wood.




Well, I don't know how my work compares to the others on this site, but I hope you all enjoy it regardless.

Thank you. Means a lot. When I made them, I never figured I'd be sharing them with anyone but Wizard (and I never got around to submitting them... I think it was because film was pricey to buy and develop and if digital cameras existed at all, they were prohibitively expensive).



Hahaha and he's not even really an action figure!

Im impressed to say the least. You did a great job, they look good man.

Genma is probably my favorite out of the lot, just because of that pissed off-ill beat ya down look

Good news, I just bought a pound of self draying modeling clay today, so I should find some time to fix/retouch a lot of these figs soon.

It's the one show that's unique in that no matter who I've shown it to, everyone's ended up loving it. Girls love it, guys love it... it really does have something for everyone. You can even check out the first couple episodes on YouTube for free here.

Thank you for your kind words. :-)
