So this is a little project I’ve been working on recently and thought I’d take some pics with updates later (hopefully by next week I’ll have my materials to make a casting).
I’ve searched hours online looking for a really good, highly articulated, (preferably) 6” action figure. There are some here and there; the ideal ones typically come in sizes 12” and above. I really enjoy certain aspects of Marvel figures as well as DCUC. So after getting tired of my endless searching, I decided to just put one together myself because I do have some duplicate figures I don’t mind butchering. I used a White Lantern Flash (resin cast?) I got off eBay a while back, same as the Batman Beyond; came from Hong Kong, unpainted so I’m assuming it itself is some sort of cast. I also bought a few Constrictors from Target for like $8 a pop.
Here we have what will currently be known as Male Base 1 (after surgery).
I took all the parts I liked:
Arms, neck joint, knees, and partial shin from Constrictor
Boots and feet from White Lantern Flash
Torso and lower body-thigh from Batman Beyond
Head was a cast I had from a ML Black Panther with ears shaved off
Currently at 30 points of articulation (if I’m doing that right)
The goal is I believe 54 when I’m fully done
Future Updates Include:
Articulation added to toes
Resin figure result with updated pics
Thanks for looking, stay tuned…
