There wasn't much wrong with the Faora figure itself but I just couldn't get over that square jawed linebacker face they gave this figure. The head is all wrong. The actress who played Faora has a very attractive slim face this figure just doesn't do her any justice. I simply narrowed the jawline from the front view as well as took some depth off the sides reaching back. I would really like to correct the hair as well and possibly make a head cast but for now since these are still a rarity I just wanted to correct what bugged me the most. The eyes have also been redone using a dental pick to designate my pupils. I just dig in and really make a nice hole there on both eyes. I then follow up with a cobalt blue on the same dental pick and it makes a nice perfectly round bright blue iris. I would still like to revisit with fabric cape as I have done for the other figures but for now I am happy to give this lady a little va va voom.

Dude--not sure how I missed this--VAST improvemenT on her. Totally agree that they went cheapo on this line. Superman IS the MAN!

Very nice work on shaving down the jaw line and repainting the eyes. I don't know what Mattel was using for a reference when sculpting her face it doesn't look like Antje Traue at all.

Not a bit. They did kinda cheap out on this line all around. I love Batman but Superman's my guy.

The Faora figure does have too much of a strong jaw, very nice work shaving it down some!
