O.K. fellow realmers, here's my version of Mystique. Was going to do a more classic color scheme, but had seen another posting in this scale done in classic white, so here is my modern costumed Mystique. This is my first female character custom.
*SW Tales Dark Woman body
- forearms & lower legs removed (little to no articulation)
*SW Force Unleashed Mariss Brood head
- under neck dreadlock removed & long braid from unknown SW
fig added to back
*SW Bultar Swan forearms
*SW Mara Jade gloved hands
*GI JOE 25th Scarlett lower legs
*SW Jango Fett belt & holsters - skull buckle from Commando Spawn knife sheath
- lower 1/3 cut off & dual Glock .45s from fodder
*GI JOE ROC City Strike SnakeEyes katana sword & MP5 sub-machine
*GI JOE 25th Zartan split blade dagger ( actually split it )
*Benelli M4 super90 12ga. shotgun given to me by coworker - thnx John
*Acrylic & enamel paints
Really wanted to give this Mystique a very European feel, so I posed her w/ a die-cast Ducati Monster. I also wanted to give her skin tone a slightly irridescent sheen, so I drybrushed a light blue metallic enamel over a blue base acrylic. Wasn't sure how the two media would work together, but I'm fairly happy with the entire outcome. Hope you all dig her, Bye, Bye, BL4CK5H33P...

Yeah its a much cooler gun, saw your cap, love the insane sheild. Still leaves me clueless as to where to find the benelli tho
BL4CK5H33P - Saturday, March 20, 2010
Thnx 4 the info... I like the idea of the Benelli better anyway. Checked your figs I like the Cap stuff did one of my own in 3.75 - update coming soon ( service dog - Rottwieller w/ ammo packs lol )

Ahh I've been tryin tto get hold of 1 for ages for a tallahasse fig. No its a benelli the spas has a perforated heat sheild covering the barrel and comes with either a hook stock or fixed stock, but never a collapsable - sorry I often get my gun off

Paint apps look clean, resemblance is noticable. Good job man, can't say I like it as much as your other stuff, but it's definitely a job well done!
