Hepzibah Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:7533  
Name:Hepzibah
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men
Creator:Gambit4Hire  
Date Added:May 12, 2008
Base Figure:Storm
Height:5.50 inches
Used three different Storm figures. Used the head of one, the hair from another for the tail and body of a third. Drilled a hole in the back and put the tail in. Removed the headpiece from the hair line and replaced with a sculpted headband. I was going to make the ears on the side as the photo below, but I liked the kitty cat look Wings made on his Hepzibah figure. Originally I was afraid that the hair piece and ears would make her look too much like Scarlet Witch. I think the triangle indenting on the ears along with the color variations make her more like Hepzibah, and not Scarlet Witch. The Storm figure used did not even have enough boot length to stand up on it’s own, so I added a little sculpt to the heels. Everything painted except the blue on the jeans.

This might be my fave. Again, a great character choice. Perfection.

I actually already have them, but they are not customs. I just didn't have enough room for a group photo. For now I'm going to work on more original figures, and may eventually go back to repainting figures I already have.

I use Citadel colours only, I never needed a matt spray after with those. Not sure where they'd stock those though if you're outside the UK?

aced it! you gonna make the rest of the star jammers?

Personally I use Vallejo Game Color paints. Yeah, you really want to get a matte finish (Vallejo makes that too) to avoid the shine. Check your local gaming/comic shop.

Wings - Yes, the tail was from the hair piece from the Savage Land Storm. It made for a great tail. The only problem is that Hepzibah's head hair is a little too long and the tail seems to get in the way a bit. Also, with all the extra weight on the back, and the tiny feet, she likes to fall over if I shake the table. That Storm figure wouldn't even stand on it's own before I sculpted some extra lenght on her heels. Maybe in the future I will make a base for her so she will stand firmly. Yea, your Hepzibah ears was my inspiration for the kitty ears vs. human pointed ears.
rpetras - Thanks for the kudos!
Punstarr - yep, ole' buddy you were right, I do like the way she turned out much more than my Leech. The paint I'm using is the Model Master Acryl. It's kinda strange that the red shows as so shiny and the white does not. The blue jeans I didn't paint and they show up kinda shiny too. My only guess is that maybe since I took the photo outdoors, the light reflected off her??? Also, I didn't spray a matte finish on her, maybe that would give her a more dull look?? Any thoughts? I went to three different hobby shops looking for the Testors Fantasy Line of paints that everyone talks about on Figure Realm. Of the three stores none of them has even heard of that line of paint.

Remember what I said about getting better the more customs you do? Here's an example. Sweet job here. Again though, the finish looks really shiny. That's the only thing I can crit on it.
