Yay crappy camera phone pics...

Redesigning the Sonic Fin. I love the one I made but it's clearly too large for the figure it was built for.

Working through the Drago Sword. I need to work on the details of the head. I'm still trying to determine if I made the blaster portion on this design or if that's too small a detail.

Yeah, it really does.

Have you considered doing a Figuarts scale Fire Smasher Cannon Blast Mode? I can supply reference pics.

Can someone give me an piece of opinion? If i make a separate civilian figs for lightning collection, what kind of Blank body/Marvel Legend do i have to use? I want to make it with cloth like hot toys but in scale with LC, might make Jason in coincidence with SDCC Exclusive.

Probably something from Spiderman, since lots of those figures have really shallow sculpt-details or none at all. As for cloth, doing that at a 6-inch scale might look odd since the fabric texture will be super visible at that scale. I'd recommend sculpting everything close to the body like pants or shirts. If you're doing something loose-fitting like a jacket, you could use fabric, but your mileage may vary with what you're trying to do.

If you want a leather jacket, a really wild idea that got suggested to me years ago that might work is the thin vinyl skins that you can peel off of school binders. That stuff is almost perfect to use as a leather substitute.

Damn, the Thunder Stinger really works with that figure’s scale. I wish one had come with the Blue Beet Figuart now...

I'll try not to take that personally~

Jokes aside, I'm patiently waiting for preview pics of MMPR Pink. At best she'll be the same height as Tommy and Tyler, hopefully the torsos will be interchangeable.



Also keeping an eye out for Magna's gloves. I pray the gauntlet is removable.

It probably makes the most sense to keep using Shadow as the base. There's a negligible height difference, and only present in Endings, since their genders weren't officially set in Beginnings. It's also in line with the Psychos.

The OG accessory is great...if you look at the left side.

Bandai added cavities to one side. They did this with a few accessories in the B-Fighter line. Most of those cavities are hidden, but you can't really hide the reverse side of a giant blaster. I never understood why this was done.



The folded version has the same issue. It really hinders their displayability.

Blech. Yeah, that’s unattractive to display. At least the other side looks good.

Well, more than likely plastic cost savings. Several companies do that. Playmates did it to their figures by hollowing tails or whatever... Hasbro did it similarly with TFs for years, thus why some have horrible hollow cavities or hollow parts. Luckily they’ve changed that for the most part.

It really is cost saving. The less plastic per item would save a ton of money for something else.

Mostly to save plastic and also just the limitations of the Injection molding technology at the time. At that scale trying to get that complexity was difficult .
The Legacy Zords didn't get smaller and detailed just because they spent more time on the design(Though CAD software also took huge leaps).
The tech now allowed for it.

Finished these guys. It always seems like there's a tamiya paint that just wont adhere. Before it was yellow and now it's this green.
