Re: Master Phruby's Customs Thread - SA Scorch!!! (9/6/07)
« Reply #390 on: September 6, 2007, 09:40 PM »
As a birthday present to myself, I've finished my super actuated version of Scorch. This has been a year in the making. I finally figured out how to do this. I basically used a Microlady body and added a black balloon as a body suit. The thin frame of the Microlady was prefect for the hollowed out armor that I made from another Scorch. It solved alot of problems when it came to the armor not fitting around the body. The head is from a TAC stormtrooper with the end of a balloon acting as a cowl to hide the neck joint. He is then given a better paint job but still keeping with the Hasbro stock colors. I hope you enjoy it!

Now the micro-man figure really sets this Republic Commando off. I have always disliked the micro-man bodies, because they looked to lanky and didn't really fit in with the Star Wars figures. This one though looks great and the extra highth from the micro-man doesn't really show, as it is a plus. I have always thought the Republic Commando looked a little on the short and chubby side, so this is a big improvement. Really killer job on this one. I might have to try this one down the road. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome job on this!

Where would I go to find the microlady actgion figure you used? I'm unfamiliar with this line of figures.

Microman is a toy line by Takara in Japan. In the US they were called Micronauts in '70s. Other toy lines grew from them such as the Transformers. A good site to learn about Microman is Microman Forever.

This figure is based on their Material Force line. This is basically an undetailed artist's dummy. They come in a large number of base colors. There are three types. Micromen, MicroLady and MicroSister. The female figures have four different chest sizes (small, medium, large and porn star) ;)  For Scorch I used a small chest size so the armor could fit over them.

You can typically pick them up off ebay for about $7. I always use the seller Zira28. She charges about $8 shipping and will typically arrive within three days of payment.

Your Scorch looks great. At first i didnt realize it was on a micro body.

I remember when you started this, you were making casts of the scorch armor... is that what you ended with, or is
this hollowed hasbro and not a hollowed cast? Turned out perfectly either way.

Great work and Happy belated birthday!

Sorry for the long delay between projects. I'm currently working on a SA Shadow Stormtrooper complete with blue body suit. It's coming along ok. In the mean time, I came across a UGH Boba Fett and thought the coin and figure would look great on a vintage Droids Boba Fett card. So I dug out a bubble and carded the figure and gold coin. I know pretty simple but I think it came out nice for an hour's worth of work.

Phruby, now THAT is awesome.  Would have been a much better mail-in for the UGH stickers I think.

I wish the figure was actually packed that way. It would have been something special to see on the pegs.

Nice card Phruby. I would have love to see this hanging in the store as part of the VTAC line.

Re: Master Phruby's Customs Thread - Dark Trooper (10/31/07)

Here is a little treat for Halloween. After finding a Dark Trooper I decided he needed to be painted more like he did in the video game and on the cardback. He is now repainted gun metal gray.
