What can be/has been done to make Movie Jean Grey better?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I got her the other day, I knew she was a bad fig. What I didn't realize was that her neck and collar were actually just one big piece of plastic. That bothers me, her hands bother me too...but that I can prob work around.

Now looking at Jean Grey in X3 she has more of a coat on than a dress. I thought about slitting the dress or cutting it different to look more like an open coat or something. But first I figured I would ask what everyone else has done with her.

So what have you guys done to make her better?

True, I am awesome, but I don't like Quicksilver enough (don't know enough) to put-in the effort

well you coulda rubbed some of your riding dirty Funk and paint apps on QS to give it a look akin to your Lord Thor which rocked bTw

That metallic Blue woulda looked hella cool

Yes, base-figure, not as a leave-it-alone figure

What are you talking about, Doc? QS is an awesome base fig!

The head itself doesn't bother me that much, I mean yeah it could be a lot better. Its mostly the fact that there is no movement in the head/neck. If the neck was jointed at the top and bottome like normal it wouldn't be so bad.

I believe with some paint and a soft goods bottom she'll be better at least...I hope.

Quicksilver and Yellowjacket didn't look that bad (from the pics I've seen), What is wrong with them?

Head swap with an X1 or x 2 jean - thats what I'am going to do

But I seen a cheap superwoman figure - and seeing the job NTT made of Black Queen I'm going to maybe give her that head

I know this won't look like Famke

But anythings better than something that looks like 70s David Bowie with his head trapped in lift doors

Hasbro sculptor made that and the figure painter needs kicked in the nuts

I resold it within the day, like Quicksilver and YellowJacket, they just weren't good enough to keep...

If you really want to do things to her then replace the head with a different Jean's head and get some hands that are "casting" like Storm's or Wasp's. It was too much work to me so I sold her

Not having seen the figure personally, I couldn't tell you. No neck? That is quite bad.
