Hello realmers, hope you have a really nice day today :).

I'd like to share with you a figure I've made this last weekend, Tim Drake as Robin. Maybe is not a great figure but must say I'm very very happy with the end result.

On custom's recipe:

Head: MOTU 200x, Smash Blade He-Man.

Body: Mattel WWE Chavo Guerrero Elite figure.

Cape: Piece of plastic taken from an empty shampoo bottle.



He-Man's hair was removed and a new one was sculpted with epoxic clay in order to get Tim's hair. The mask, "R" symbol and the other little details on suit were sculpted with epoxic clay too.

Since the very beginning I wanted a Robin to fit well with my custom Batman, so this wrestler was perfect because it's a little smaller than the regular wrestler action figures.

The cape was made using a piece of plastic from an empty shampoo bottle which was heated to get the right shape which I think came very well.

Acrylic paints, a matte sealer and there you have it :)

As you can see in third pic, this Robin came as a perfect complement for my Batman, I think they look very well together.

Thank you so much for looking... and have a great start of the week :)

That's excellent. I like how the head came out. Good sculpting on the costume details. Really like the red you got and the shading in it. Love the cape you made. One of the better Robins out there.

WOW, xGARRIKx! Definitely one of my favs from your customs! That sculpted details, including the 'R', turned out perfect! The paint job, EXCELLENT!!! Love the colors you used! Ingenious use of a 200x He-Man head for Robin!
How did you make those grooves in the shampoo bottle? That cape turned out amazing!

NeCrollector, brother, thank you very very much, great to hear you like this Robin. As I told to Ringo, It will be a pleasure to tell you how I made this cape, it will be a pleasure and a honor to share a little bit of what I've learned with such great customizers like YOU and Ringo and everyone else who encouraged me with kind words

nice and clean. Sculpt and paint are flawless, and great idea on how to make the cape. You´ll have to tell me about that process in detail... I could use to knowledge to make a few capes myself...great job all around!
xGARRIKx - Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Ringo, brother, It will be a pleasure to share with you the solution I found to create capes, in fact I'm making a tutorial on this. I'm very very happy you like it ... big hug from México

lol I used the same body but holy crap u did WAY better
xGARRIKx - Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Hey dude, I think this is a so interesting fact, I mean, even though we can use the same base to create a same figure, the result will be different because of the vision and style of every customizer . I'm glad you like this Robin. ( as MUCH as I like your BANE!!! which is an awesome piece )
JayBlazeXGen - Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Good point & thanks
