Sorry for the double post, I figured I respond to you guys in one and then it got so long I figured I'd update in a new post.
I figured I post some WIP pictures of my SG-1 figures, because CaC, Hemble, and a few others have both been asking about them. Be nice they need sooooo much work.
I may just start over and just modify BBi figures, becuase my sculpts are bad, and I also want more articulation. Sorry for the crappy pictures, I've got one with the flash, the other without.
And here are the descriptions of each thing from left to right:
On the left I have 2 Zat guns, the one on the holster got squished, so I have to fix it or redo it. The other one may need a bit of work but I think it is almost good, I have to make sure it'll fit in a hand though.
Then I have a custom staff weapon that still needs some work. I have to clean up it's head a bit and I think I'm going to lengthen it a some.
Next is my O'Neill:
His head is a Potf2 Hanhead, with resculpted hair. I am looking for something that is a closer likeness to RDA but I haven't found anything yet. If I end up using thisone I'll have to sculpt the ears back on.
The torso is a Potf2 Han Carbo base but then it is completely resculpted. I don't reallly like it because it looks too POTF2-ish. I am really considering using a BBi figure and resculpting the vest. My vest on that one still needs work too, it isn't very realistic looking and has a couple inaccuracies.
The arms are also a Potf2 Han Carbo. The lower half are sculpted and there are fingerless gloves and a watch sculpted on. As well as a pocket on one arm. I don't mind these too much but I think they are a tad buff as well, they could use more fabric creases, but I like the sculpting on the bottom half. But they will probably be replace for something with more articulation or I will end up giving articulation to these ones.
The legs and crotch are an OTC Dagobah Luke. One leg has an ass pocket sculpted on and I sculpted the belt. The boots obviously need to be replaced and if I do switch to a BBi upper body I may switch these out entirely as well, but I wanted somewhat of a Hasbro SW look to these customs, so they may just be modified more and kept.
Next is Teal'c torso, it is bigger than O'Neill's and has the vest open. Again I have the same complaints about it as I do with O'Neill so I'll probably redo it as well.
And Below that is the very beginings of Carter's torso. BBi doesn't make any females that I'm aware of so I may be using this one, I need to get it looking good though. I plan on using a GiJoe Bombstrike as the head.
Once I learn to cast this summer I'm going be casting all of this so I can make Multiple versions of each, as well as other SG team members. I want to try and give them all ball jointed heads as well, and as much articulation as I can with out sacrificing the sculpt. If they turn out good enough I'll make an extra set to card and maybe more to trade (big maybe). And as for the others I plan on making I may have to almost sculpt them entirely as well. I think I'm going to ask for a wax pen for Christmas, if I can get halfway decent at this
. Because I'm not really a fan of sculpey when it comes to using this much. Well let me know what you think
