Hey custom figure makers, I love my Thorn Horn Camo but his figure paint job is such poor quality compared to original Camo. I was wondering if it's possible to remove the base/figure so SA Camo is the figure for my Thorn Horn Camo base. Mostly I just want to keep the exploding pumpkins wow pow - it's awesome!


Like OnionCakes suggested...just touch up to paint job so it looks as good as he dose in the game....i did the same thing to my Thorn Horn Camo. smilie

To be honest, I prefer S1 Camo's pose as well, not just the paintjob. The S2 version just seems too vicious for him and is less dynamic.

it is possible to separate the coloured disk from the bottom of the figure's base, the ones i have done it to of mine have separated without any damage.
once you've done that its a simple task of taking out the S1 chip and putting the chip that is in the S2 figure in. you might have to usie a tiny spot of super glue to seal it again if the coloured disk becomes loose and won't stay attached.
the chips aren't attached to anything, they are just a paper thin round piece of plastic.

Messing with the chip might be too dangerous - I think it's less risky if you leave both Camos under hair dryers for some time, remove both from their bases, fix what needs to be fixed in the bases and then swap them out. That way you could even later customize the "S1" Camo to demonstrate the Wow Pow or something.

I agree...messing with the chips is not a good idea if you don't know what your doing...also all my figure's base's are glued on very well...i had a Hot Head that died(already got a new one to replace him) and was curious and wanted to see the chip...had to literally brake the bottom off to get to the RFID Chip.

Anyways finished my repaint of Gear Shift...here she is.. smilie
Named her ...Tangerine Tech Gear Shift. Like that Pearlized Tangerine paint....looks cool. smilie Her eyes are Pearlized Blue...and that gold is Titamium Gold.

What do you guys think?...i was thinking of painting the buckles on her forearms an thighs an the gears on her shoulders silver like the one on here head...or should i just leave her like she is?

So FINALLY found a place nearby that sells polymer clay and doesn't take forever to get shipped. It's FIMO soft(and some Effect to see if I can make the Queen actually look metallic) and probably not the best out there but it'll have to do while I can't really invest on art materials.
While it's not here though, I'd like to ask: Has anyone ever taken apart a Lightcore figure, like remove it from the base or even see the insides of the areas that light up? I know Jinsaotome did it a few years ago but didn't find any answers. Trying to either fix or at least make a Scarlet Ninjini without working lights prettier, but no idea if it's safe to remove her from the base or take other things apart to, say, fix some ugly plastic mistakes on a really finicky spot on her neck.

As i have stated in another post My Hot Head died...so i got curious and decided to take it apart to see how it worked... smilie ...and separating the base is a real pain...some have said theres came apart rather easy...all of my figures base's are glued together very well..including Hot Head. As you can see in the pic...it broke 3 of the 4 pins....well 2 an half. I did get a new Hot Head back then and touched up his paint also.

Well to answer you just cut those wires you see coming off the circuit board....but i kinda like the lights on my Scarlet Ninjini...they needed to coat the inside of her face with silver so the light would shine through only her eyes and not her whole face. That is the only thing i would like to fix on them both.(i already touched up there paint smilie )

Yeah, really like her lights as well, but there was no way to get a replacement(from the seller or from Activision), so gotta make the best of what's left. Too bad RFID lights are impossible to find here, if the problem is with them dying out I at least know it's possible to just take her apart and put in new ones.

EDIT: I'll probably toast my fingers trying but managed to at least get her arms and the bottle off so it's easier to pull, not a very clean job compared to Hex's skull for sure. The mist as well seems to be holding very tight no matter how much I heat it(and there aren't any holes to put in a screwdriver or a pen to help) so I'm trying to separate it from the torso first.
EDIT2: This will take a lot of clay and paint to fix. Still no deal on removing from the base but everything else was fine. Really considering just mixing glow-in-the-dark powder with glue and painting the wires instead...

Finally done with Scarlet Ninjini....
In the solitude of her bottle, Ninjini planned several spells to increase her powers in the time of need, rivaling even the fabled Legendary Armor of the Skylanders. To defeat the greatest threats to Skylands, Gilded Scarlet Ninjini arises!

[User Posted Image]
(with a neat comparison to the normal one)
More pictures:
Side
Back
Other Side

It's hard to tell with the camera pictures but she's actually a lot darker and with gold glitter mixed in with most of her colors. To compensate for the nonworking lights, I also painted her eyes with glue mixed with glow-in-the-dark powder - which looks kinda messy up close but every time I try to fix it the entire thing peels off. By far the hardest custom I've done,and that's when I'm fixing my figures' paintjobs for almost a year. It also cost a tiny razor for modeling that I got to fix the plastic mistakes, for some reason it decided to rust two days after.
Here's also the steps to making it,not including the second coat of paint or when I put it back together. Messing with frozen super glue isn't fun.
EDIT: Ooof not fun at all really, one of her arms just broke off again. Hot glue,a bit of paint and never letting her fall off stuff will have to do.
The hair is also kinda messy because I pulled it off her head to remove the bottle, but it'll have to stay that way for the time being. For now, I'm using my polymer clay for my next project...

"My loyal servants of Skylands... I have a demand to make!
Polymer Clay should stop being so expensive. I don't look like I want to part ways with my gold to get some,do I?"


[User Posted Image]
Imgur album glitching for some reason

It's finally done! And it definately doesn't look anything like I wanted it to be, but what I managed to make is done.
All in polymer clay of white,caramel,and metallic gold, and painted over with acryllic paint to reflect her different gold colors in the outfit. The base has a bead that we had around here, the crystals are amethyst(or at least they told us it's amethyst) shards that broke off from a wind chime that fell the other day, and the golden chains are also stuff that we had lying around. The base just wouldn't allow her to stand on her own, though, so I had to cover her feet in hot glue and paint it gold so that the piece didn't get ruined. At least it looks like molten gold which is nice.

Now that vacations are over, not sure if I'll have time to make anything next. For now I'll focus on my drawing and schoolwork,maybe I'll make a smaller villain figure once I have more free time.

You need to create an account on some image uploading website, imgur will work, but I have found that deviant art works too and is easier to use. Then upload a picture using the cite's perimeters and then right click the image copy the image address and then paste this in-between these brackets [User Posted Image]

as said above do not post all at once!

hope this helped!

i have a cool idea... buy cheap SSAlanders, and card sleeves.

remove the rfid from the fig.

put it in between the back of the card and the sleeve.

glue the top of the sleeve shut.

and what do you get? a card that acts like a figure!

Really nice effect and shading,but it doesn't look like it'd stand up or would be stored too easily - but if it's your favorite character it'll probably have its own place in the shelf so depends on the person.

Kind of uneven because it came with some scratches and spots on the plastic(but my skills don't help one bit), but it looks good from afar. Matches my custom figure quite nicely~

Oh hey, this gives me an idea for custom traps. I could paint them to designs based off the doom raiders. Heck, I could even do it for every other villain. Yeah I love this idea, going to come up with painting ideas.

Well after more than a year, I finally managed to get ahold of a figure and paints to repaint! I wanted to do one ever since last summer, here in Spring 2015, I finally have my chance.

I give you "Neon Boom Jet". This was painted with "Neon" green, orange, and pink. Technically they are fluorescent colored paints. I can tell before I bought it. This repaint is really cool because it glows under a blacklight! Yes, I totally have glow in the dark paint. I also did some photoshopped artwork of the variant.
