Hi I'm new here, just signed up about 5 minutes ago...*smiles nervously*
Righto, so I've never really customized a figure before in my life (aside from paintjobs anyway), but I saw this thread and decided I might give it a shot because I'm somewhat crafty. Plus I think I fell in love with Shak-Ti when I saw the premier for the game at SDCC 2008.
Anyways, I was thinking of picking up a Maris Brood figure (they have them at my local Wally world) and using that as my base for this figure, and making the clothes out of some very ultra thin leather I have. Couple questions: 1) what should I use for sanding off bits on the figure? will plain old sandpaper work? 2) anyone know a good, inexpensive paint that will work for this? I'm 16, so I don't really make a lot working at Subway...
Ok, and on to my main problem...does anyone happen to have a spare Shak Ti head I can use? They don't sell them here at wall mart...(heads up, I'll probably be repainting the whole face (yay strait pins...
), so the paintjob on it doesn't matter)
EDIT: Oh, heres a pic that I took of the TFU banner with her on it...its bigger than the "official pics" so you might be able to see some of the details on her outfit better. Sorry it looks just a little bleached out...it was the best I could manage with the lighting.
