Adding articulation

Posted in Custom Workstation

Are there any customers here that do this and if so how much? I mean like cutting a figure apart, shoving in joints, etc.

Particularly I'd like a poseable Nono (Diebuster) figure, but the only one that exists is a very expensive garage kit that's rarely ever found. With anime figures in particular you don't get that many poseable figures.

if you wanted swivel joints could you use the screw method?

its definitely possible to add thoe articulation, as long as its not a ball joint then it'll be a little more difficult.

I'd want leg and waist articulation, and some kind of swivel in the arms. That figure's a little too big though.

I might just keep an eye out for the Garage kit, that sculpt isn't fantastic.

They don't have to be good joints even. I was thinking like Kaiyodo's EVA figures which pretty much look like someone slices the figure up and kept adding swivels.

You can try looking at ML figures and cutting the joints out like that, then drill a whole all the way through and then add somesort of peg. I don't know if it will work, so maybe wait for another reply from a really good customizer, as I don't wasn't to mess up the kit.
