Looking to create Zora Link Custom Figure!!!

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey everyone!!! I am looking to create a custom ZORA LINK figure from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N64 game. My major problem is finding a figure to use as a host body. I want a figure that has the best articulation I can get. I would like to use a Marvel Legends figure, but I hate those wierd ball-jointed hip joints that they need to rotate the ball to either move the legs back and forth or side to side. I like the DCUC figures for not having that inconvenience. Here are some pics to give you an idea of what I am trying to accomplish!

thats exactly why I was asking this, because he is made of a VERY soft plastic, virtually rubber! Would he be easier to mold sephiroth? then make him with a more rigid plastic?

be careful spray painting if it's a soft plastic. A lot of action figure plastics now that are TFs are really soft. Oddly primer works on some of them to stop it from getting sticky. If he comes wiht a part that you can sacrifice as a test I'd do that.

Remember you can alwese paint over the figure if you make a mistake.

well, I do mind risking the figure, lol! Well, I've been debating if I want to learn how to mold. So Im thinking if I can sculpt and design all the pieces to the figure, I can mold my very own then and create as many as I need until I get the proper procedure down for painting and maybe even molding colored plastic, saving me some time and materials!

I'm not shure about the spray paint. If you don't mind risking th base figure than give it a go.

Hmmmm, can u show me a pic of this spiderman figure? I also guess my next question would be, can I get away with spray painting the figure the light blue? Or does the plastic not allow the paint to dry like some figures do?

I had no idea the figure cost that much! I still think the animated spiderman black would make a great base figure but I don't have any ideas of what head to use. Maby one of the Dragon Ball figures heads they are schulpted the same way.

If I could get my hamds on that Zora figure I would! I found one on ebay a few months ago but I was outbidded over $200 and I was just in a bidding frenzy. I NEVER want to spend that on a figure so I figure I will make one! Otherwise that would be a great idea if I wanted the extra articulation

How bout you splice the figure that was made of this carecter with the Spiderman animated Sbiderman Black figure.

That's not a bad idea at all either! I figure that killer moth has a head that pointy and also guides for links sideburns it'll help. Plus with KMs wings I can mount one on each arm for the fins. Since this is only my 3rd custom I'm trying to make things as simple as possible til I get as good as you guys!

I would've guessed a blank SMC Spider Man body, it's plain, no detail, and pretty articulate, all you need is sculpting, but I think Killer Moth would fit perfectly with some elements already there.

Well I think I may have found my ideal base figure. I believe I will use the DCUC Killer Moth figure. His head is already similar and his wings will work for his fins!!!

not bad! but id rather haave a figure that has actual hands, a little bit more of a muscular body, and boots, especially at the feet, Id rather have to only sculpt the boot tops
