Custom Marvel Legends Style BOONDOCK SAINTS Connor MacManus 6 to 6.5 inch 1:12th Scale Action figure. I was very unhappy with the lack of lower body articulation in the action figure so I added the lower half articulation so the legs and waist and hips and ankles etc can pose in almost every direction. Matched his size up with his brother's size.

Fraternal twins Connor and Murphy McManus become vigilantes after killing two members of the Russian Mafia in self-defense. After both experience an epiphany, the brothers, together with their friend, set out to rid their home city of Boston, Massachusetts of crime and evil; all the while being pursued by FBI Special Agent Paul Smecker. Famed for the brothers reciting their family prayer right before killing with two gunshots to the back of the head of their victims—the bullets cross and go out his eye sockets. They place coins on the eyes of all nine bodies, as if to pay the toll to cross the River Styx.

How did you add the articulation. I got these figures for christmas a few years back and have always felt the same about them

Hi awglasgo. Some customs I cut using a dremel right where the articulation needs to be added and then create joints from sculpey and add them where they need to go. You then need to dremel holes that have an enclosure so they can fit the part and stay and move/turn. Those are really really hard to do. In this case I used a easier technique which still requires a little patience and precision to do it right. Doing it wrong might mean having to go out to buy another base which for these costs about $100 each. You Heat the center to remove the current legs and heat the shoes as well to salvage those. Then pick a bottom from a figure you are willing to sacrifice. Wolverine has a good one to use. Every mount is tricky as it always depends on the interior. If the interior is intact you need to create a T-HOOK in the waist so it will connect and rotate. Do not glue because that is amateur and the waist will never be able to rotate. Once you create a T-Hook and dremel sized the hole appropriately to catch the hook in the inside of his body you need to heat his upper body for about 150 seconds to place the legs in and wait for it to cool. That way the legs will hold tight and rotate. Then adding the shoes will depend on what type of joint is in place with your current choice. You might have to build a joint for that.
