Custom Numenorean Action Figure Can't Post

I don't know how many of you collected the LOTR line of figures that Toy Biz put out for a few glorious years, but I certainly did! I loved the line but there were a few gaping holes that I feel needed to be filled. One of those holes was that TB never released a Last Alliance Numenorean soldier from the Prologue of FOTR. So, I set out to make one of my own.

It's taken from many different pieces of other TB (and random) figs and sculpt and paint. it's a 6" figure, in case anyone didn't know what scale TB worked in.

Rather than resize a bunch of pics, i'm just going to link them here:

How long did it take you to make this? It's great!

Nice job! How long did it take you to make it?// [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing they evidently prefer.

Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you very much!! I really appreciate the compliments. As far as time goes, it's hard to say. I worked on it sporadically for about two weeks. It worked out to about an hour or so per day... so somewhere around 10-14 hours. I have some other figures that I may post over the next few days. They are a bit older and the quality wasn't nearly as good.

I'm also working on some new ones!

yep! [In reply to] Can't Post

I kept hoping they would too... then the line just sort of stopped. There was no real warning. I think it could have easily gone on for a few more waves. If they'd gone into "expanded universe" type of territory, they could have had nearly as long of legs as Star Wars.

Thanks for the compliment!!

Fantastic! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thats a great piece of work! Looks fantastic and the paint work is superb.

Makes me want to have a go at making a custom figure.
