Carrie Kelley Robin Custom Action Figure

Custom #:55860  
Name:Carrie Kelley Robin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Batman
Date Added:November 23, 2013
Base Figure:Young Justice Artemis
Height:6.00 inches
I found that the Young Justice Artemis figure worked great as a base for my Cassandra Cain Batgirl figure and decided to use the other one I had to make a Carrie Kelley Robin. I went into this only knowing what the base would be and searched around the fodder bin for the rest of the parts. I ripped out the pouch on the side of her left leg and covered the resulting gap, as well as sanding off the knee pads. The head came from a Fantastic Four movie Invisible Woman, with the hair ripped off and new hair sculpted onto it. The glasses were from a DCD Agent Diana Prince, with the lenses recoloured green with a permanent marker so some translucency would be retained. The R symbol, belt buckle, glove cuffs and boot cuffs were all sculpted, with the clasps on her tunic cut from a sheet of blister card plastic. The "skirt" portion of her tunic was from a JLU Superman cape and the belt was an elastic band. The edge of her sleeve was made with the straps from the pouch I had just cut off. The cape was from a Batman and Robin movie Robin, with some sculpt to bridge the gap at the front, then painted yellow. I decided to make her signature handheld slingshot weapon, with sculpted-over twisty wire and then black twisty wire used for the sling. I'm pretty happy with how this came together (apart from the flesh tone on her legs) and thanks for looking as always! And yes, I know Steph is missing from the Robin lineup, I'm sorry!

I love this site but at the same time I hate the fact that I miss seeing great customs like this once on a while. Great looking Carrrie, btw.

I really appreciate that you went back to comment on this! Thank you.

Sure thing bro. And regarding that numbskull with the stupid comment about your figure, just ignore fools like those. World is full of haters because they can't do what you can, so they think they have to bring others down. Just means you're doing something right.

Appreciate the encouragement. I do have to remind myself often not to let the turkeys get me down and I'm grateful for all the kind and constructive comments I get on the Realm from fine folks such as yourself!

This looks great dude!! I know how you feel about hunting for the right base--it took me forever to find my Carrie Kelly! Great job!

Thank you very much Fitz! I must say your version is way more accurate in scale!

Thank you NeCro! I received a comment from someone who thought this was so bad he said "I hope you didn't pay for this", so it is very encouraging to get positive feedback on the Realm.

Really cool. I had planed making one from a mu she hulk body to match the scale
JeddTheJedi - Saturday, November 23, 2013
Thank you. I figured she is too tall (she's taller than all the rest of the Robins in that lineup ) but maybe this is a teenaged Carrie. A She Hulk base would definitely provide more contrast with the bulky DKR Batman.

I guess I'm thinking of the movie. Bat was so damn big she came up to his thigh
