You forgot about Minimates Tygra.
Hard Hero trumps all. Runner up is my custom repainted Bandai figure :p
Looks a lot better. It's amazing what difference a bit of paint can make to a figure.
Do you make many customs or Gundam models?
I rarely do customs, maybe two per year, usually very minor touch ups. I would like to do more.
I haven't worked on models. A couple of years ago I got a cheap Batwing at the thrift store and was about to begin... until I realized I was going to need special tools and glue... and back to the thrift store it went
Don't get me wrong ... your figure looks better, but this is still the worst Tygra figure ever IMO !
I done little touch ups on figures but over December I did my first full on custom figure. I got a cheap Marvel legends Superior Spider-man on sale for £4 and decided to paint it to look like the black symbiote costume. I think I might have to put more black on as I think the blueish highlights might be too strong.
Original cartoon look.
I know the series is on pause right now but when we get him I will prefer the original cartoon.
I really like the mock up Wilycub did, though my only criticism is that the head looks slightly too big for the body.
Ugh, no, that mockup completely misses the mark on body type. This reminds me of the samey proportions that a lot of the Jakks WWE figures had.
I can't wait to see what 4H comes up with, though I do like the Mezco head.
I doubt 4H will come up with a different body for Tygra since they are using the MOTUC buck body.
But didn't they modify Panthro's buck?
Nope. The only new bucks are Mumm-Ra, Kit and Kat.
New parts. Same basic buck.
Yeah but those new parts work well to keep Panthro in scale. I think they could do something similiar with Tygra too
It is possible.
And like I said a modified buck - which is exactly what that is.
