The Custom Toy Thread II
 
Since the other thread was only a page away from 300, time to make a new thread to show off new customs :)

To get things rolling.

What head will you use for that?

[QUOTE=Kai]Here's an idea that I can't seem to shake...

[IMG]http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i204/mihirtrivedy/D13D663D-8E63-4CF7-98F1-C0F9D3CFDE9A-478-00000035B8E6B3DD_zps5d252185.jpg[/IMG]

The only thing is that because there's no belt, it would involve either extending the abdominal piece downward, or the hip piece upward. I'm thinking extending the abdominal part down would limit the movement least - anyone's thoughts?

EDIT

I guess i'll extend the abdomen
[/QUOTE]


Why not try taking the belt that comes with ShinkenRed, and sanding it down as little as possible and painting it, so that it looks seamless?

It seems like that would give you less trouble than trying to extend the entire torso down....

It also would help with the movement/articulation issues you're going to encounter by adding tot he lower torso. I mean yeah, it may look like there is a belt there, but I mean, its a figure and doesn't look accurate to begin with. :P

Otherwise, he looks sweet so far! What helmet are you using? its really detailed and looks like the perfect size.

are you going to do the rest of the Zyu/MMPR (Yellow,Blue,Pink) Lord Zedd08 ?

OPTICS March 26th, 2013 11:57 AM

Its not perfect, but it'll do.

Theres a peg hole at the palm of his left hand, but not his right. Originally I wanted to make a little Cortana, but I didn't have any of those small little figures that came with Gundam kits. Plus, I figured if SE ever makes a PAK Cortana, that would include a miniature Cortana to peg into his hand. Obviously its designed for something to peg in, but none of the current 4 PAK figures have grenades. You could peg the guns into it, but not all the way and it just looks weird cuz of the way his fingers are positioned.

I plan on attempting Blue but I would need to locate another Red Ranger. I may also do Yellow, but it'll be based on Zyuranger, so it will be a guy.

There are a few other projects in the work that are not MMPR related though ;)

buy a Zyu vinyl head from king if you can.

I'm not 100% sure, but they are just barely the correct size for a Figuarts body, so I think they may look really ridiculous on the Armored Might body.

Its worth a try, but I wouldn't expect it to fit well. Hhahaha

King Ranger March 26th, 2013 02:21 PM

[QUOTE=Thaupt;4331305]What helmet are you using? its really detailed and looks like the perfect size.[/QUOTE]

It looks like the head from the US figure. I started using that one until I found the vinyl one I have now.

You do know I have various sizes of ranger heads in my possession right?

LZ, have you thought about using the head from the legends Tyrannoranger?

Yeah, but he needs mammothranger's helmet.

Are the sentai masks too big for that body?
Because the legacy mask collection might work if that is the case.

jtmiley March 26th, 2013 03:40 PM

I didn't even realise that was a AM body, it looks much better in black for some reason. I've been toying with some old MMPR vinyl heads I got years back, but they're very cartoony. Not sure what you could use for the head.

King Ranger March 26th, 2013 03:42 PM

I explained my comment to him on FB that I meant use the Tyrannoranger head as a base. He said it didn't go well.

The sentai masks are WAY too big for a 7 or so inch figure since they are around 1/6 scale which would mean they would be better suited for a 12" figure.

There's a Mega Bloks Halo 4 set (UNSC Cryo Bay) that comes with a teeny little Cortana piece with a base that's basically a single LEGO stud. You could try and make a peg for that.

Also, King is correct. He and I discussed it, but sculpting the helmet turned out less than desirable.

I consulted a few other friends as well. It currently works, but if I can find another option(s), I'll definitely try them

RichardX1 March 26th, 2013 07:46 PM

Okay, here's my current project:

Turning one of these:

Into an approximation of this:

As my experience is limited, any advice you all could give me on painting or sculpt trimming would be appreciated.

And yes, I know it's going to look "retrofire".

Sweet! I'll look into that, thanks!
