Wow! Damn nice! Is it a one of you did for yourself?
How did you go about articulating it. I assume you fitted in all the joint parts just prior to casting and using an epoxy or glue to put the resin pieces on with.
I had never tried or looked into making an articulated figure so I dont know the usual methods.
The ball-socket joints I made myself. You can see the WIP shots here: Joints are on post #46
All other joints are just pins from the hardware store.
It's POSABLE too???? Do you realise that this would be a huge hit in the gaming community if we could serialise it? I'm impressed ANd jealous at the same time Good job on the sale(s) btw.
you should post the WIPs here too!
(I was highly disapointed in the Metroid Prime 3 - corruption's rendition of Samus's head at the end. Gosh I hate it!)

nice work. yes post some wip pictures here too.
It´s just perfect!!!!
Yeah, this is totally bad ass....the fact it's poseable is ridiculous...my only nitpick would be the face seems a little bland compared to the rest of the piece, but it could just be that one shot of it....
Awesome work, I can't imagine the amount of work this would take (well I can, but don't want to ) kudos....

The face doesn't look too great, but otherwise, it's freaking awesome.
Like it? No! I loooOove it! It's, it's, it,s.. fantastic! Awesome color choices and combo!
Inspiration comes from everywhere and from nowhere, from life and from dreams and from places that have no names. It comes most often in small pieces as tiny and bright as diamonds.

Haven't seen anything such a cool type of action figure in a while. Really, big kudos to you for going all the way and created your own socket and ball joint. I agree with the face looking odd, maybe if you plan to reworked it later you can use the one from the new Smash Brothers Brawl as reference, as she is looking hot in that game. Nevertheles, it's outstanding what you have achieve with that! Thanks for posting the WIPs as well, this dedication is admirable.
Also, by looking at that flicker photos, do you get to finish the Lara Croft one too? Looks great so far.

Thanks! Lara is almost done. I just haven't had the time to work on her cause of classes. I like Samus' face in Smash, but I wanted to go with the more realistic look of Prime 1. Prime 2 and 3 had horrible face models. I guess I could make both... since the head could be replaced.
Sooooo Shiney!!!! You got skills!!
Hey looks equally as good as the one they flogging on Tokyotoys, maybe you should drop them a line?
I agree with the comments about the head, hope you post up your re-works
I want one!!!! :-)
Your work inspired me. I am working on an action figure now, I would like to use your design of joints, if you don't mind?
By the way, how did you make the black rubbers to cover the joints? Did you mix Rebound 25 with black paint?
this is absolutely wonderful, the helmet-less head is a little weak looking compared the the superb craft quality of the rest of the figure but still one of the cooler things ive seen in a while (including other samus action figures that were on display at the ny toy fair last week)
Could You please post a picture of detail on how you make the joints?
also i know you use liquid plastic resin for the parts but what do you use to make the moulds with ?
A+++ its very inspiring
