Gambit WIP shot by Jin-Saotome Gambit WIP shot by Jin-Saotome
Here's a Work in Progress shot of Gambit along with a finished shot. You can see where I sculpted, parts-swapped, and added extra stuff on him. This is customizing, taking existing parts and combining them to form a completely new character. The head came from a Marvel Legends Cannonball with Aves Fixit Sculpt hair/features, ML Nova body, Walmart exclusive Nick Fury coat and arms, ML Loki hands, and the lower legs from an original ML Gambit figure.

It takes a Dremel rotary tool to widen holes and drill new cavities for parts to fit in, X-acto knives, sandpaper, hairdryer to soften the plastic so the figures come apart, filing, super glue, sculpting compound, and of course paint. Painting takes a long time depending how intricate you want to get and Gambit here is extremely detailed.

I like the WIP shots too, gives more of a feel of what went into it aside from just listing the parts.
very nice sculpting on the hair, you're getting much better at it!
