Hello to y´all
I am back after a while. First of all, props to Fitzjedi for the inspiration and part of the recipe. I wasn´t going to make this custom, initially. I was going to buy it. But I lost it, and had no remedy but to make one. Recipe is (similar to fitz´s):
body: superposeable wolverine from X2.
Head: X-men movie professor X first headsculpt (heavily reworked), you know, the one sir Patrick Stewart himself rejected because he thought it didn´t look like him.
I gave the head choice a lot of thought. At first I was going to use wolvie´s head, like fitz, but then I thought that he did a magnificent job at sculpting his face and possibly I couldn´t match that. An second, well, I just loved james Mc Avoy rendition of Xavier, but I wanted my young charles action figure to resemble the old one (Patrick Stewart), so I used a professor X movie first head sculpt. I sculpted hair, filled in the wrinkles, sculpted on cheeks to make them rounder. Then, I sculpted the suit, pressing the fresh fixit to a leather jacket to give it texture, made suit straps with styrene, sculpted all buckles, painted, sealed in matte and metal buckles in gloss. Tell me what you think, please. Magneto is coming soon, too!
