Date Added:June 22, 2011
Base Figure:Hybrid EMCE and Castaway body
Height:8.00 inches
From Dungeons & Dragons here's my 1/9th scale version of Melf the Elf(also known as Parelay the Elf).I sculpted his head from Claystone over a 6 inch scale action figure head(non of the original head's features remain actually).I sculpted his Sword(I painted glow in the dark green,with acrylic glow paint),dagger,arrow-case,bow,dagger sheath,and Shield from Clay-stone.I sculpted his shoes from Clay-stone over some CTVT Joker shoes(or brown Happy days shoes).His Blue chain-mail is an Emce Andorian's sparkle outfit which I dyed light blue with Rit Fabric dye.His Leather tunic is a CTVT Davey Crocket shirt which I altered with some cutting(sleeves,etc.),I sculpted the gold circles from Clay-stone.His belt is an Emce Andorian's belt which I added a buckle to with the Clay-stone (and partly painted with brown acrylic paint).I made his arrows from some tooth picks(I sculpted the feathers from claystone).A customizer friend made his cape(I got the little brooch from him too).I cut his wrist-bands from a Castaway gauntlet and I cut his arm band from Jaxx Pacific Wrestler's elbow-pad(I painted with gold acrylic paint). I painted all sculpted parts with acrylics and sealed with Mod-podge.

Thanks Patraw,glade you like my Melf Elf.And I'm glade you think the head sculpt looks rather Feminine actually(when I sculpted it that was actually how I intended it to look,since even male Elves are often described as being pretty).
I do plan to do some Monster type D&D Action figures in the future(Bore-Orc,Gnoll,Goblin,Kobold etc.),I might even base them on some of the figures from the 80's PVC(statue)figures line,I was always disappointed that aside from Zarak(and he was only half Orc actually)and Ogre King,all the action figures were Human(and Demi-human,Elkhorn and Melf).

Good work on his outfit/accessories. The head sculpt looks a bit feminine to me, but that's not entirely inappropriate for an elf. I'd like so see you take on the task of making some non-humanoid monsters for your MEGO D&D figures to thrash . . .
