A complete revision of my original Young Link figure. The intent was to make it look more like link, and completely change the articulation/overall "rough" appearance.
EDIT: the "accessories" photo shows link with some basic fixes made months ago. The pink around his eyes was removed; the entire figure was washed down with a thick matte coat, and many general paint fixes were implemented.
An entire description of the joints and how they were used:
Ball pieces: Kotobukiya standard ball jointed kits
-Metabee Kit (1)
-Armored Core Kit (2)
-DBZ Model Kit (1)
-Gundam Model Kit (2)
Shoulders: Socket (2) glued inside center chest area; ball piece (1)(small) connected to Hobby Base Ball Shape 8mm sized joint. Edge of opposite peg trimmed to fit appropriate into upper arm, allowing for bicep swivel.
Elbow: Revoltech (NEW version) 6mm joint; peg going towards upper arm cut completely off, piece glued into upper arm; opposite peg trimmed to fit appropriately in socket.
Wrist: Small peg trimmed from Hobby Base template/tree, glued into forearm.
Neck/Head: Revoltech (NEW version) 6mm joint.
Torso/Abdomen: Socket (1) glued into center abdomen; ball piece (2) connected to Hobby Base Ball Shape 8mm sized joint; trimmed socket piece (unlisted) placed around previous joint, connected to belt/lower tunic (skirt); ball piece (1)(small) connected to socket (2), glued to trimmed revoltech eva wrist sockets (pvc base used on hips for durability in small area).
Hips: Hobby Base Ball Shape 8mm sized joint. (description of socket in previous listing)
Knee: Hot Toys basic body wrist joint; cut at both edges, glued into each side of the leg.
Ankle: Socket (1) glued into upper boot; ball piece (1)(large) connected to similar sized peg (Hobby Base template/tree); lower portion identical to upper.
The figure was sculpted using Super Sculpey, and painted with Modelmaster acrylics. The joints are a compilation of Revoltech joints, Hobby Base joints, Kotobukiya ball joints, and scrapped joints from figures I hadlying around. The figure itself stands almost EXACTLY 4 inches tall. The face is removable, allowing for different expressions (of which I have yet to sculpt), a long with his hat, allowing for different, more dynamic posing effects. He currently has 6 incherchangeable hands; 3 for his right, and 2 for his left.
This is probably going to confuse many people, so, if you have questions, go ahead and ask away.
