Gamora Custom Action Figure

Custom #:56233  
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Select
Date Added:December 7, 2013
Base Figure:My own 3D figure base.
Height:6.50 inches
I'm not sure what compelled me to do Gamora (other than she's very easy to do, kicks butt and her designs is mostly generic and reusable).

Like my other customs, she was modeled in 3D then 3D printed through shapeways and painted with cheap acrylics.
The sword was 3D printed too, taken as is from an old medieval 3D model I had done years ago. Nothing to be proud of but was readily available.
She also reuses the hair from my Songbird custom and the cape (with the necessary changes) from Powergirl.

The face is a blend between the one I used on Songbird and Powergirl and a new Afro American face I added to the mix since then.

The Silver Surfer in some of the images is the new Marvel Select Silver Silver... and it was fun to invest a bit more into taking the pictures.

Even when it's "passé de Meir" old hat for you and you could write your own 3D app & user interface for the action figure customizer the sheer work you day in awe-inspiring! You know I was busting your chops! I've ordered enough light sabers from you on Shapeways I could have (and will retake the Old and you know I'm fan, borderline stalker I could just figure out a way to Matrix-style upload a third your ability & talent! Awesome as always!!

All of your figures are amazing! I'm really jealous of your 3D skills too! Great, great work.

im just floored by these creations man!!! btw u are too modest these things are amazing and u got some awesome paint skills too!!!
Strangefate - Friday, January 3, 2014
Thanks a lot Scorpio!

I think I'd probably give the credit to the plastic, I just paint solid colors and the plastic takes on paint rather well and makes it pop nicely. I just finished a Skyrim inspired barbarian figure and I think I'll try some more complex painting on that one for the fur etc... that will probably require some actual skill, so we'll see how that turns out

Wow! Very nice figure and even better paintjob!

I hope someday we can get these 3D printers cheap as we do deskjets today .
While we wait for that time, do you have any plans on making plain buck bodies for retail bro?
Strangefate - Friday, January 3, 2014
Thanks LooseCollector!

If by retail you mean proper, industrially produced bodies, then I'm afraid no. I'm not sure I even want to start thinking about what it would take to get that done. My hope is rather that 3D printing will just keep getting better and cheaper

While not everything is up yet (got distracted), the shapeways store linked above with the figure has some plain bodies now and a collection of swords and axes for 6-7 inch and MOTU figures, with more weapons on the way

This is gorgeous!! You 3D PRINTED THIS CHIC? In parts? You need to elaborate, LOL!! Nice work!!!
Strangefate - Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Thanks Fits It's probably a lot to read, but it's all explained (with some pictures too even) in my WIP forum thread: ... 25&t=42467

suprasizeme - Monday, December 9, 2013
Awesome custom…I really wish I could wrap my brain around your process… the paints look great as well.
Strangefate - Monday, December 9, 2013
Thanks Supra! ...what part do you find confusing ?
JeddTheJedi - Sunday, December 8, 2013
Beautiful work! Not only is the base figure very well designed and created, your paint work on this is pin-sharp too!
Strangefate - Sunday, December 8, 2013
Thanks Jedd! I did cheat using a water resistant metallic marker for some of the gold.
JeddTheJedi - Sunday, December 8, 2013
You're welcome and oh, it's not cheating at all! The end result is great and that's all that counts.

Ur stuff keeps getting better and better, might order one of the blank model figure u got on sale, awesome job man, can't wait too see ur next custom
Strangefate - Sunday, December 8, 2013
Thanks! ...and yeah painting is getting easier and I'm getting more used to what things print better.
If you wait a week, there should be a lot more things for sale on shapeways, including other blank figures with blank uniforms (as opposed to the naked one right now) plus the stuff I'm currently working on at the bottom of that page: ... 7&start=75

This is AWESOME! It's embarrassing to gush like a schoolboy, but it is truly awesome. I like it.
Strangefate - Saturday, December 7, 2013
Glad you like it... and it's only embarrassing if you let people know you're NOT a schoolboy
panchopantera - Sunday, December 8, 2013
I'm digging that Dr Fate custom also. Did you submit that one previously?
Strangefate - Sunday, December 8, 2013
I did submit that one too... I think that if you click on my name over this post and then on 'customs', you'll get to her.
panchopantera - Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Took a good look at that one. Man, these come out nice. And you're 3-D printing these? Nice work.
Emmett - Saturday, December 7, 2013
Wow! very nicely done!
