PM'd you about a chance of perhaps getting one? cast unpainted pieces and joint holes would work for me.

I want one. Considering Samus' arms are quite noticeably separated from her torso, do you think some extra fabric of some kind in the gap between the arm and the torso would hide that a little?

are you still selling these? if so can i find out how much?

also how do your arms attach is there a joint going from the chest to the shoulderpad, then the arm attaches to the bottom of the shoulderpad? i've been trying to figure that out on your bigger figure for a week now. also while im asking i saw you said the black between the joints on the bigger figure was molded rubber. can you be more specific. did you buy it somewhere?

great sculpt!

Well I wanna try my hand at some models too. And I couldn't find a good way to make usable joints, besides the LEGO ball joints. :/

So when you started showing your joints and stuff, I was immediately interested.
And I dunno, I can't seem to find any of the joints on the site. Just models.

I think that site is like a 3rd party. They have stuff in stock, but if they don't, they look at other retailers to resupply. Seems though that those joints aren't produced anymore. The first time I ordered, they didn't have them in stock either, but found them and shipped in about a week. Now they just basically said "sorry".

Using various methods involving silicone molds and resin. You can go to Smoothon.com to check out the materials that I used and see videos on how it's done.

Any update on the kits? I'd still love to get one.

And Link would be awesome. Mario too. Both of those have gotten figures before, like Samus has, but also like Samus they haven't been very good figures.

Oh, freakin' sweet! xD Can't wait to see how it turns out! lol You know, it might be a little harder, but you should try making a Ridley or something. Just a thought, you know? Oh, and also, where do you get your supplies to do this? I've always wanted to try making action figures and stuff, but I've never known where to start.

Ridley is a definite, just not sure what scale to do him in. I would love for him to be "to scale" with a Samus figure, but then He'd be huge!!!
I do have a test sculpt of Ridley's head. I think it's somewhere in my gallery. I think it's way too big though. :( The complete figure at that scale would be about 4 feet long!

Supplies come from all over. I mainly use Smooth-On products for molding and casting. Tools I've acquired over the years. Clay came from www.sculpt.com .

I know you've probably gotten a zillion requests, but could you possibly make me one? I have never found a more detailed custom Samus (other than the large one that you made, which is like the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life...). Being a Metroid fanatic, I cannot seem to find an affordable Samus. Thank you for your time. Keep making things this awesome. You truly have a talent.

and now for some constructive criticism...
As others have said, you made her neck too long, but I assume you did that to give her head better range of movement. Of course you know Samus's neck sinks below into her red upper chest area, it's not level with it. It's a minor complaint, nevertheless.

My other beef is your decision to put her arms right below her shoulderpads. I'm sure you've seen this image: [link] but you may want to study it pretty closely to come up with a way to give her shoulders and arms a good range of motion without ruining her silhouette. I would assume this would require two ball-and-socket joints; one for her arms connected to her body, and one for her shoulderpads. But maybe the shoulderpads only need a half-ball and socket since they clearly have limited movement. This figure definitely seems to have more range of movement than your previous figure, but I'm not sure you made the best decision on where to place them.

Everything else looks really beautiful. Whoever buys this will surely not be disappointed. C'mon Nintendo, time to make a new one already!

Thank you for the crit. :)

I can see about lowering the head a bit. Yes you are right, I made it like that for movement. The shoulders... that's the best I could come up with for the movement that I wanted and with the joints I used. I'm constantly trying to think of new ways to do the shoulders. They are just such a pain to work around ;)

Thanks again :D

Marvelous. Do you sell these, or just for display? If you do sell them, or are taking orders, I would be interested. If not, its an awesome piece of work, and its great just to be able to see it. You are a fantastic sculptor, keep up the awesome!
