RE: Custom Tron Legacy Figure Resource

Speaking of the MIB Agent K for an Alan figure, I was looking through a site called ToyArk and some member there called Boba Fettuccini (ever heard of him, is he a member here? ) had an idea where you use the MIB figure body and the head from the Vintage Collection Rebal Fleet trooper here for an Agent Coulson figure.

I know its not Tron related but since its the same figure body I thought I would throw it out there.

EDIT:
Since they are expensive new does anyone have the MIB or the Wedge figure, or even the Fleet Trooper for sale?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Sorry for taking so long to reply. Had a long day today.

Anyways, I apologize about the Henry Jones figure. I wasn't aware of the tweed design of it. Though the jacket portion you may not be able to use, the arms still look possible, as you would need to sand them down.

The problem with the 3.75 scaling is that though they are almost the same size, some of the figures are often smaller than not. For example, the Avatar action figure line states it's a 3.75 inches tall. However, when compared to a figure from the G.I. Joe line, they are drastically smaller. So, it's hard to say for certain that certain figure parts from various lines can fit together if they're at the same scale. More often than not, most people who do customize at the same scale often end up modifying the pieces so that they can fit. With the suggestion I made of combing the Indiana Jones figure and the Henry Jones figure, which are of the same line, it would have cut down on the chance of incompatibility between parts (because both figures are of the same line). Much like we know from the T:L line, some figures heads from other lines wouldn't fit, either requiring a modification of the head or the ball socket on the T:L figure body.

The MIB suits are correct, but not only are they slightly shorter, but they also appear wider as well. But, they are good bases if you wish to use them for Alan Bradley (that is a decision up to you).buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

No need to be sorry about taking awhile, we all can be busy.
Its not your fault about the Henry Jones Sr. figure, I have one and I even didn't see it right away!

So what would be a good replacement for the suit from that one? And could the arms from that Indy with the gun work?

Another thing I have wondered about is how to paint and sculpt some of those figures.
Since they are more rubber than plastic it makes it hard for sculpting since its cheap rubber that just breaks sometimes and hard to paint since the paint wont always stick and its hard to prime stuff that small.

And when you paint the parts with joints like the arms when the paint dries it locks up the joint or flakes off when you bend them. Is there a way around any of those?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills how does abortion pill work medical abortion pill online

Well, if you asking me if the Bruce Wayne figure could be use with the Indy arms, I honestly cannot say because the only real way to know is to see the figure in person, see if the arms are capable. Not to mention, I just realized that the Bruce Wayne figure doesn't appear to have a ball-joint neck. But I can say the Indiana Jones body (primarily the torso and legs) is a good base for a figure with a business suit. If you could sculpt the jacket and find arms that do not have the heavy jacket sleeve appearance and you'll have your body made.

Well the painting of the joints is one thing I can help you out with. There is a three part tutorial online by a user called TheCookiinCompany that shows how she customize a figure. Granted, it's done by a girl and its for the 6-inch figure, but she shows how she paints a figure in the third part of the tutorial. But, long story short, when it comes to the joints, you'd have to paint them carefully and do it in small amounts (the only other option is to disassemble the joints themselves, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it).
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es86s1MDvtc
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4rX-VmIGuw
Part 2.5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJpE-Bifh4w
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4C-_7l_kAk

Now, I know it doesn't address the issue of rubber, I can't say for certain how sculpty would react to it. You may want to sign up with the Figure realm forums and ask the question about it.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

They're not rubber. They are just soft plastic - not all plastic is hard. Sculpy will work fine on most figures (have had a little trouble with the kind of plastic that McFarlane toys use). I will put in that due to the nature of soft plastics, you might want to try curing any sculpy detailing you do by immersing it in boiling water for awhile, instead of traditional baking. Or better yet, get some Games Workshop 'Green Stuff' or Apoxysculpt.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills online cytotec abortion where to buy abortion pill

I have done the boiling thing with that, just have to make sure the plastic does not warp.
So is that apoxy stuff what you used on the Quorra head?

Yes indeed. It can be a little trickier to work with, but it doesn't crack while curing as easily and there's no shrink.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I came across a custom that utilizes the body of Jay from the recent Men in Black figure line. And, from what I can see from that figure, my assessment of the figure being too wide may be a bit off than I initially thought and may actually be a good body for an older Alan Bradley custom.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills how does abortion pill work medical abortion pill onlineon line abortion pill cytotec abortion medical abortion pill online

That looks great! Just too bad the MIB figures are high priced from the movie being new.
Maybe I will find a loose one sometime.
Also what do you think of that fleet trooper figure as Coulson? I am planning on doing both so I will also have to get two MIB figures. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

The Fleet Commander's head does bare a likeness to the actor who plays Coulson. If you think it'd work, I say go for it. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

If I got Wedge for the Tron head, 2 MIB figures, the head for old Alan and the head for Coulson at full price which would be $9-10 each it would be about $50. And if I got them new on ebay it would be even more. Thats why I hope some seller in China will sell them cheap and loose. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineon line abortion pill http://blog.inkstersgive.com/page/misoprostol-dose-abortion.aspx medical abortion pill online

I found some guy in Malasyia selling the Wedge figure, but it keeps getting bid up.
But then they keep getting relisted so there will be one for cheaper someday.

They also have the figure that Boba used to make the Quorra head I have, that one is buy it now for around $7-8. I am waiting for a reply to see if they have the Fleet Trooper figure.

Also that Colonel Cracken figure is up in the $20 range on eBay so maybe he will have it too.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Yeah, it's a bit tricky when it comes to eBay. But like I said, I got my Juno Eclipse figure via China through eBay, so eventually, one Wedge may become available at a low price. As for Colonel Cracken, I recommend going to Wal-Mart (the last time I went, they had it there, which is where I thought about how it'd be useful as an older Alan figure and posted about it here the same day I got back). They're only $8 from what I remember.

You may also want to check the local Toys'R'Us in your area. They may also have it in stock there.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I went to Walmart the other night and all they had was the Episode 1 in 3D figures.
Meijers had some but they were $10 and I don't think they had any of the ones I need.

And from my experience with TRU they will be more expensive than either, but I will look.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills on line abortion pill medical abortion pill online

By the way, when I post on figure realm it has to be approved by a Mod before it is visible.

I know that pictures, links and such is limited until a new person makes about 10 posts (at least I think), but I don't know about the PM being disabled. I never had that approving thing turn up to me before. I guess its something that's recently be started.
