Buzzer beater! Haha! A last minute submission! Glad I made it in time. :)

Base figure is a sota street fighter ibuki with psylocke's lower legs and feet.

I was about to finish sanding the hip joints when ibuki's hip joint broke. Arrrgh. Talk about frustrating... I'm one day away from the deadline and this has to happen!? Aaaaaaaaaaargh! So there, I have to improvise and look for other available joints. I don't want to sacrifice a new figure just so I could use the hip joints. Luckily I still have this dismembered movie blackheart lying around that still has it's hip joints. It doesn't match ibuki's leg socket so I have to drill it down and sand it until it fits perfectly.

I then sanded off unwanted details on ibuki's costume, sculpted the armor pieces, right shoulder armor was from a cut up toothbrush holder covered with epoxy and glued on with bits and pieces of cylindrical plastics. Details on the shoes were sculpted, sculpted parts of the hair, painted the figure, and voila! Here's the other human character from the alien vs predator arcade game.

Super pose-able Lt. Lyn kurosawa reporting for duty! Ready to take on the alien army!

Hope you like it guys!
