help? need idea for base figure.

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey I have a custom idea and I am looking for a heavily muscled body,not huge, I need it normal size (6-8 inches) but not bulky like hulk with good sculpting and articulation, and sort of a McFarlane feel to it. Anyone have any ideas for what to use?

Also this is such a good idea that I will not tell you what I am making.

First thing that comes to mind is the WWE Deluxe aggression bodies.

The LCBH Wrral figure (That comes in the Conan 2-pack) is a great figure. Well muscled, and easy enough to swap out parts from (with different forearms, lower legs, and head - you can make anything out of it).

Best of all, it's dark plastic - and it's articulation isnt' really prone to paint rub.

Hope this helps.

If you get the chance pick up a DCSH Bane. The sculpt is AMAZING!!!! I had one and never opened it for a long time. I recently opened it to make a custom Bane and was absolutely surprised on how detailed it was. The four horsemen out did themselves sculpting Bane. I am actually trying to buy as many as I can just to put away for a rainy day. Right now its not too pricey but it might be in the future. But from what you described this would be the PERFECT base for your mystery custom. Good luck, ant

the DBZ bodies are mostly short and don't have the best articulation (though I do love DBZ) (NOT THE MOVIE) thanks though.

the idea of savage dragon also is very good he might work even better. ill have to take a look at the figure if I can find him.

You could use an LCBH Savage Dragon. The upper body is pretty buff but the legs are average.

some of the dragon ball z bodies I've seen are good for that kind of muscle maybe not the heads but the bodies are good for a buff guy and they have deep detail points

you could always try a wwe deluxe aggression, there roughly between 7-8 inches and the articulation is pretty good.
