Robin Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:11029  
Name:Robin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Creator:Buzzy_Fret  
Date Added:November 21, 2008
Base Figure:DCUC Robin & Sinestro
Height:6.00 inches
Since I cranked out 2 Batmans I guess it's time for Batman's sidekick!

Robin v.2

Basically the same as my previous Robin custom.

Recipe:

DCUC Robin > Head, Cape, Forearms, Hands, Belt and Lower Legs

DCUC Sinestro (Classic) > Torso, Upper Arms, Waist and Thighs

Rex Lace for the Shirt Clasps

Designed the "R" Insignia in Photoshop and had it printed out by a local print shop so it'd be nice and crisp. Then I cut it out and decopauged it on.

I used mostly Model Masters Acryls on him. Since the Sinestro's waist is blue I base coated it with Krylon Fusion Black when I had him all broke down for prepping. I went over that with MM Flat Black during the paint stage.

I also used the MM Flat Black to tighten up his cape details. Since I don't have any extra bottles for my airbrush yet I had to brush it.

On my previous Robin I had to glue the cape to his back to keep it from flaring back too much. So this time I used my dremel to cut some grooves into his shoulders and one on his back to anchor the cape better. Even with that the cape is very heavy and will still pull him backwards in certain poses. I considered using the Sinestro lower legs to see if it would give him a little more stability but they just didn't look right.

The hardest part of this custom is the prep work that I do. Once I had him back together it only took a couple days to finish him up.

What do youse guys think?

Fantastic Robin! That's just how I want my Robin to be. Any chance you'll put these on a website or at least post a tutorial?
