50th Spirit update

Postby nighthawk » May 11th, 2018, 12:47 pm

I didn't really like the 25th Spirit build but liked how true to the vintage it was. However, the things I didn't like was the headsculpt and his feet. Since I can't find matching colored feet, I decided to do what I did.

Parts:
arms, head, and legs - proto 50th Spirit from China
body - 25th Spirit
webgear - 25th Spirit modified so knife sheath is functional

I don't know why his face is so shiny. That's just how it came. If someone has the retail one can you check if it's shiny? If it's not, then anyone got an extra? The skin tone on the head is different than his arms so if anyone has an extra 50th and can check, that would be great.

I've had someone ask about his height. Here he is with some other figures and he doesn't look too short. May just a very little bit but not something that would affect his display ability.

Nice, I wonder if you could make it more modern with FSS Hardtops torso?

So, the shiny head was due to it being a pre-production release. I managed to get a production release and it looks a lot better.

As for Hardtop torso, it'd be too expensive to use for this...haha.
