    Here is my Arcee. My husband painted the car body but I did the head. I know her head is not the greatest in the world but for my first try I think its ok. What do you think?

    Hey, that's pretty good looking. That head is amazing and mold appears to work very well for Arcee. Is that head polystyrene or clay?

    That would be my only complaint. She's got man hands. :) 

    Great looking figure overall. Having the majority of the figure white with pink accents works really well.

    the head seems just a tiny bit short to me. not much, but just a little squashed... that and the hands are the only things that aren't perfect to me though, it looks really really nice!

    Nice work - heh - the kitbash family!

    I agree on maybe some smaller hands, but otherwise is looks really good.

    Smaller hands would indeed be nice, but screw it, it's pretty cool as is!

    No the head is mirage with a ton of work. I sanded off the sides of his face then added sheet plastic for the helmet. And sanded some more, then paint. Vector did al the body paint.
