    I hate this mold. Never want to deal with it again >_>

    Redid the entire paintjob, drybrushed alot of battledamage metallics, redid the face, added blaster holsters, and added her crazy IDW Robots In Disguise guns. You win if you can guess correctly what the guns are made out of!

    What mold is that? As for the weapon, cardboard? (just getting that one out of the way :D )
    Looks good either way.

    It's Impossible Toys Valkyrie. It's cheaply made.. I think I bought it originally for $80 at BBTS when it first came out? It's not even worth $10 XD

    And no, it's plastic ;)

    That paintjob...doesn't look very good. It's not precise, and it looks streaky.

    The guns look to be made from those of the HG Strike Freedom Gundam.

    Might be the cheap non-grade 1/144 rather than the HG, but yeah, definitely a 1/144 Strike Freedom's guns... I've heard nothing good about the Valkyrie toy, but at least you managed to do something fun with yours :p

    Haha yeah it's originally made from the NG 1/144 Strike Freedom Guns. Those NGs were so terrible and I have so many of them that I think I have enough weaponry to fill out alot of my customs now. I used nails for the handgrip because there was nothing small enough to fit into her crappy hands. The magazine was made from HG 1/144 Enact wings because it was falling apart.

    And yeah.. avoid Valkyrie. Especially if you are one to fiddle with your figures alot. She can fall apart from a breeze.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Personally I like to use Gundam sprue for handles. :)

    I think the base mold is animated Arcee but I'm not sure where the guns came from

    No, its a "valkyrie" figure. A cheaply made third party figure that falls aprt upon looking at it.

    Did you read any of the above comments that said what it was?
