    Default Re: GIMLI Customs...

    Yeah I think actually crushed/slashed/destroyed my thumb while working on the body. It definitely takes a lot of very controlled patience.

    Finally finished my Gimli custom:




    Size Comparison shot:


    I decided to give him ball-jointed wrists for a bit of added articulation. I stuck with the DiD boots since the ToyBiz "soft" Gimli's boots are solid and at at a weird angle.

    I also stuck with the DiD chainmail - I don't mind it in person. Also, the Ignite chainmail is impossible to find now, unfortunately.

    Other than that, it's the standard formula:

    Toy Biz:
    Head, helmet, double-bladed axe (my DiD double-bladed axe broke); hands/gauntlets

    DiD:
    Everything else - uniform, axes, boots, chainmail, overcoat, belt, etc.
    The scariest thing that I've ever seen, is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
    It's as big as a house on moving legs, and whatever it steps on, it crushes like eggs.

    Well done. That's basically the same recipe for mine.

    The "chain mail" left a lot of silver dust all over the figure so I'm in the process of cleaning it up.

    A good discussion is like a miniskirt; Short enough to maintain interest and long enough to cover the subject.
