Robin Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:2731  
Name:Robin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman
Creator:DDA  
Date Added:May 23, 2007
Base Figure:Spider-Man (Spider-Man Classics)
Height:5.50 inches
This is my first time ever using putty so be nice :P

I have been turning all my Batman DCSH in to ML for the same reason as everyone else, but when it came to doing Robin I had to use a figure that was shorter then the rest so in came my old Spider-Man Classics Figure.

I had seen customs of Robin using the DareDevil SMC figure but seeing as I don't have one I had to use my Spider-Man.

I was going to wait until some one on a website was selling one but thought that this would be a good opportunity to use putty for the first time as unlike DareDevil, Spider-Man has his webbing sculpted in and would still show up after painting.

So I coverd it up (torso, arms, hands, feet) and then painted it over, then modified my DCSH Robin head/cape and glued it on.

Base: Spider-Man (Spider-Man Classics)
Head/Cape: Robin (DC Superheroes Wave 3)
Belt: Batman (Mattle)

ps. I know about the muscle definition but I thought I would wait until I've practised more before I move on to the hard stuff.

Your sculpt looks really good.
There is also nothing wrong with doing some of the sculpting after the putty or whatever has dried!
I actually prefer to do some of my detail / cleanup work after the stuff has hardened. I use Apoxie, so I can't comment on milliput, but it works well for me.
For the details I use a cheap set of sculpting tools I got from michaels for like $10, sandpaper and sometimes the trusty Dremel.
Happy sculpting.

I'm not usually a DC fan but you've got one smooth sculpt job there - I know how fiddly it can be filling in all that webbing so hats off to you. I'm still struggling with sculpting but Apoxie Sculpt seems to be the easiest to work with.

Oh I don't know squat about Miliput but Deadeye Samurai uses it so I'm guessing it's pretty decent. Before I tried Apoxiesculpt, (which I learned about reading feedback from a modder on a website ) I was using this aweful marine repair putty that was NOT water soluable and cured hard in 20 minutes. Talk about speed sculpting!! Stuff was also like $5 a tube at walmart/home depot and so not as cost effective as Apoxie sculpt (even though most apoxie sellers are shipping pirates!!) I really like this green putty that comes from citadel but it's super super expensive in quantity so I don't use that stuff at all any more! Apoxie seems to work for me although it does have it's uhem...issues.

Hey thanks Greymonk, really appreciate that.
I'm using milliput.
And I was thinking the same thing, about it only being Robin so I wasn't to botherd about defining his muscles...Glad I'm not the only one

well done buddy! EVERYONE had to start at the same place when it comes to using putty: The beginnning. What are you using just out of curiosity. Some things will be less trouble for a beginner than others, let us know what you're using to save you some grief if at all possible. Looks good so far, and don't sweat the muscle definition, first it's Robin, and second, these things will come to you in time. Well done!
