This is my 2nd take on a First Appearance Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. THE SCARLET WITCH!!! This figure is actually shipping off for a customer with my Brotherhood of Evil Mutants set.
The Customer this was made for is a true comic book fan who really knows the characters through and through. He requested a slightly more sinister version of Wanda than the one I had previously made. He understands these characters in a very multi-deimensional way and had a real vision for what aspects of Wanda's personality he hoped the figure would capture and it was a pleasure to help bring his vision of Wanda to Life.
This figure required a Full face Transplant, which was quite a challenge. Does anyone out there recognize that face?(Challenge that shall likely be solved in 5 seconds!) She also has articulation in the arms that allows her to be posed as though aiming her mutant powers and, as a bonus, I included a removable blast of those exact powers in action figure form! Her headpiece, many costume details and her chest area were sculpted, as well as her Cape ornamentation. Her cape is removable, whereas last time it was not and I tried to use a more subtle contrast with her colors this time. Her Mutant "witchy" blast was painted with Tamiya Clear Red and the rest of her, cape included was mainly painted with Citadel Acrylic Paints except this time I tried a paint strengthening agent. Precautions were taken to reduce paint rub..
And here you have her..a new, yet old school, slightly more wicked Scarlet Witch!!!
