Kyle Reese action figure preview

You already know I'm working on more TSCC action figures, so I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at Kyle. He's now ready for painting and I think I'm happy with him. I can't say my vision for Kyle, Riley or Catherine was as clear as it was for all the others since we don't see them as often (and really, we hardly ever see Kyle). But I'm satisfied with my work.

If I didn't care about being able to pose him (and I had more time), I'd probably try to actually sculpt him a trench coat. He wouldn't be able to sit down if I did that, though, and chances are it would break anyway. I considered cutting him one out of vinyl (like the cheesy ones they had for the original Star Wars action figures) but that would probably look, um, cheesy. So his trench gets the same treatment Derek's army surplus jacket got — it ends at the waist and you have to pretend it's a coat. You can do that for me, can't you? Cool, thanks.

Here's Kyle, ready for painting:

Three in-progress pictures can be found starting here.

Isn't he sexay? What's that tattoo on his chest? Very nice work, can't wait to see him in action!

He'll look different when he's painted too. Right now there's a bit of an illusion of droopy eyes and a mustache from sanding and sculpting work.

The tattoo that was on his chest was a US Marines emblem. I had to sand away the muscles on the chest (and fill with some sculpey, so the tattoo is gone (would've been painted over anyway).

I have no idea how often we might see him, but really, going into episode 14, I had to have a Kyle :)

I think he's going to look really good when he's painted. I'm excited to get to it, but I'm still finishing up Riley and Catherine.

Yay! I can't wait to see these finished!

    I totally know that feeling. This place is a placid puddle compared to that tempest.

    Hi Jayne!

    Yeah, I'd wait for Netlfix or something. I'll see it again on the small screen just to see if I still feel the same about it.

    More TSCC bits I'm thinking of:

    Hi Roxy!

    Thanks for the review - great stuff, as usual.

    I haven't been able to bring myself to see TG yet, and probably will wait until it's On Demand (because OD has that necessary FF feature),…

    Hi TN :)

    It's not like I keep up much either. I hadn't even posted in here in year (wow, time flies!). I do miss hanging out on LJ, but once most of the community I knew had dispersed, it just…
