Mockingbird Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42039  
Name:Mockingbird
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:raybot  
Date Added:August 21, 2012
Base Figure:Black Widow
Height:6.00 inches
Took another shot at Mockingbird, and used her as sort of a springboard to get some articulation work in.

I added a true ball-joint into the torso (so it can freely pivot/tilt/arch in any direction), then the flush rocker ankles Hasbro's been using. Hair should be from DCUC Stargirl, and the billy clubs are Nightwing's, but otherwise she's all Black Widow. Also resculpted her crotch/thighs a bit too, as well as all the various costume details. Used some clear resin to do her goggles too.

Looks great with this Hawkeye I'll have to post tomorrow. Though he is up elsewhere.

Cool. I'll try to practice first.

Really really nice.
The mods you did to the hips shows. That's someting I never liked about that body - how frail and skinny it is.
Also, she's a bit taller than Hawkeye too, huh? Another flaw of that body. [edit - oh no kidding? You took some height out? Again, bravo for putting the work in] The Ball joint in the torso makes a huge difference in the posability - I did that once - nice job putting the work in.
It's a gorgeous custom. Really nice work.

Yea, the hips don't work for everybody, but I'm glad the hip fix I did streamlined her.

I actually did manage to take about a quarter inch of height out of that body so she's not taller than Hawkeye though. Managed to pull it out when I did the ankle mods.

Hey Raybot love your work! I'd just would like to know if you have any tutorials up or if you could give any tips? It's always best to learn from THE best!

P.S. Mocking Bird looks great! Definitely keeping a note on 'clear resin' for shades.

Thanks! I don't have any tutorials really, but if you ever need tips you can always PM me. From experience, probably the best advice I could give would be to just pump way too much time and money into it .

Your work is always so flawless. I like the way you gave her more movement. I must try it.

Definitely pays off, but I'd try that ankle mod on some cheap-o parts first. I mess it up 1/2 of the time and just trash the things On parts that small, jamming a spinning dremel head in doesn't really leave much room for error.
