    She's a master of Karate, and Friendship, for everyone.

    Credit where credit is due.


    Alright, been working on this over the past week in between workdays. Pretty simple premise here: 1/144 HG GN Archer, left off everything but the main body, also cut off the knee fins and cut a couple notches from her feet to resemble tabi.

    She's painted in Tamiya Light Gun Metal and Metallic Black. Deco-wise, I wasn't trying to emulate her G1 cartoon design at all. I wanted something more "ninja" or "kunoichi". Like the one female character from Tenchu (I think the second one), or the main character from Princess Blade if anyone's seen that movie. Wanted the look to be that of the Light Gun Metal being bare skin, while the Metallic Black is the outfit. Then of course a good old coat of Future after letting the paint cure for a couple days.

    Her weapons are about the only thing I took directly from the G1 cartoon, in the sense that they're Lightsabers nabbed from a Gen. Grievous figure.

    Anyway, on to the pictures. Hope everyone likes. By all means, feel free to post comments and critique.

    Night Man, sneaky and mean
    Spider inside my dreams
    I think I love you

    You make me wanna cry
    You make me wanna die
    I love you, I love you, I love you,
    I love you, I love you
    Night Man

    Every night you come into my room
    And pin me down with your strong arms
    You pin me down, and I try to fight you
    You come inside me
    You fill me up
    And I become the Night Man...

    It's just 2 men sharing the night
    It might seem wrong but it's just right
    It's just 2 men sharing each other
    It's just 2 men like loving brothers

    One on top and one on bottom
    One inside and one is out
    One is screaming, he's so happy
    The other's screamin' a passionate shout

    It's the Night Man
    I'm feeling so wrong and right, man
    I'm feeling so wrong and right, man

    I can't fight you, man
    When you come inside me
    And pin me down with your strong hands
    And I become the Night...
    The passionate, passionate Night Man
    :D

    Good stuff all around! Paint looks smooth too.

    But you still gotta pay the troll toll if you wanna get into that boy's soul.

    Too funny.

    Very nice. GN Archer seems to be a well-loved Gundam for kitbashing, because I've seen a couple people use it to make femmes.

    that's some nice work.

    but the title and constant sunny references are stealing this thread in the most awesome of ways!

    Thanks. Yeah, Gundam 00 1/144HG GN Archer.
    Thanks.
    Thanks. I make an effort to try and make everything look as "factory-made" as possible.
    Thanks. It definitely is a great figure. I'm sure the HG Nobel Gundam is going to get a fair bit of Radicon use as well for Female Autobots.

    Really, there's just so little option among TF lines that you have to branch out. Even if there's a bit of irony in using their main competitors product to simulate TakaraTomy product.
    Awesome sig.
    Thanks.
    Thanks.
    Thanks. I've had the song stuck in my head for a good 3 years.
    Thanks.

    I don't mind the thread veering a bit. So long as people check out the work on the way to post.
