Wilykit Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:15527  
Name:Wilykit
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Thundercats
Creator:Darththomas  
Date Added:June 16, 2009
Base Figure:X-23
Height:6.00 inches
My 8th thundercat custom and the team is coming together nicely. I realise this base has been used before but I copied by accident rather than design. I just found a real cheap X-23 that was just screaming Wilkit to me. When I got it home I looked on here for ideas and found two others so sorry Boskoes and bootfactor3 but thems the breaks.
anyway, enough about me onto the figure
part 1: dremmeld away unwanted details
Part 2: swapped legs for psylocks
part 3: sculpted hair with aves fixit
Part 4: cut of toe of boot and grafted on toes from a plastic cheetah toy
Part 5: painted with GW paints
Part 6: hoverboard, cut top of a kids toy boat, glued cardboard underneath and added fixit to fill the seams.
part 7: Glued ice lolly stick to top of board and fixit to apply the symbol
part 8: took engines of an X-wing and glued to bottom
part 9: painted hoverboard and done
I felt like this was kind of a rush job as I have got three more base figures waiting on the chopping block but I think it turned out OK. The last picture is there to show scale with my others

Just realised I forgot to add the cat symbol on her chest, oh well won't take long to sort

Hmmm, yeah I see what you mean, it does look a little dirty in the pics, it's not that bad in person though. I may change it after I've finished my three others I've planned. Thanks for the constructive criticism, it's how we all improve!!

Pretty cool rendition of Wily Kit. I would say that the paint wash, on the limbs, just makes them look dirty and accentuates the mold lines--I think they would have looked better painted a flat flesh tone.
