    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.

    Thanks for the comment.

    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!)

    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....

    Thanks! Yeah, I don't really like the face either. It was my first time sculpting. I have gotten better. Her head can just pop off, so I might re-sculpt and swap it.

    The face doesn't look too great, but otherwise, it's freaking awesome.

    Good design decision....I think that's what would pain me the most is deciding on joints and all the menial work involved....

    Yeah the joints were a big pain. I didn't want to use standard action figure joints cause the movement to me is too robotic/stiff. I wanted a more natural motion to them so I decided to use ball-socket joints where I could. The problem then was how do I make them. So I lost lots of sleep over it.
