TSCC: Custom Action Figures PART 2

I've finished most of the grunt work on the figures now. There were, as expected, some parts changes along the way. Ellison got new arms because I liked the rolled-up sleeves look. Cameron also got new arms (I was going to have to paint the others flesh colored, now it'll be easier). I swapped John and Derek's abdomens because John's belt is more noticeable. Sarah got new legs because I liked the look of these boots better. Cromartie got new legs and a new abdomen because I'm going for his season finale "man in black" look. These legs had cowboy boots and this abdomen had a big belt buckle with a bull on it (yeah, I'm going to take a few liberties in punching up the western look).

So I think I'm satisfied now with my parts choices:

You're probably thinking "uh, what's different from last time?" Well let me tell you... lots and lots of power sanding, Dremeling and hand sanding. I removed some unwanted guns, pockets, pouches, etc. and reshaped a few parts. If you're curious about the process, I have photos of the work here.

Now I have to deal with the 3 heads that don't fit right. Sarah's neck will require some Dremeling and sanding and John and Charley's necks need some bulk added to them in order to fit their torsos. After that, it'll be hair time for Cameron (and maybe Sarah). And then I get to start bringing them to life with paint.

That he is, but it'll be his EMT uniform when I'm done.

I am in awe of what a single line of text has brought about.

You so crazy! ;)

Just that you're doing this is extremely awesome, but I'll take all the pimpage you offer. ;)

Looking cooler and cooler. Hey, when you're done will we be able to recognize certain outfits? Like Cameron's jailbreak chaps and John's gas mask shirt, Derek's Henley of Hotness (hopefully you won't paint the blood stained nipple shirt on him) and Sarah's flashdance T-shirt?

Sort of, yes. I'l give you a rundown of what I think I'm going to do:

Cromartie will be in all black like in the finale.

Charley will be in his EMT uniform.

Ellison will be in dark pants, white shirt and black flak vest (w/FBI on it) like in the finale.

Derek will be in jeans and green army surplus jacket w/dark grey tee underneath.

Cameron will be in black boots, charcoal jeans, green/black tiger striped tank.

John will be in grey t-shirt w/white long sleeves underneath, the tee will have crosshairs design on it (gas mask would be too difficult, but I considered it), he'll have his arrowhead necklace, light blue jeans and black sneakers.

I'm still a little undecided on Sarah, but I think she'll have a brown leather jacket w/dark grey shirt underneath, black jeans and dark brown boots.
