Redd Rocket custom figure

All done now, with the exception of her flight pack. It took a little while for me to figure out what to use to make it. I'm almost done with it now. I just need to get around to painting it.

Redd Rocket figure WIP 2

Here I have purposely handled the figure and moved it around a bit to test the paint job and look for joint rub. I'll need to go back in and touch up many areas of paint. I have also started sculpting the body details too. After I detail her paint I will seal the figure with a matte sealer. The rest is mostly gear and accessories. My next big challenges will probably be constructing her flight pack and finding (or sculpting) a raygun.

Redd Rocket figure WIP

I decided to try my hand at some action figure customizing. Even though I used to customize my toys all the time as a kid this is probably my first serious attempt at making an existing figure into something else, particularly one of my original creations. I started with a She-Hulk figure. This is still a work in progress but I am happy with my progress so far.
