Power Rangers 4" Ranger Slayer Custom Figure By Dravenheart

November 03, 2019
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 4" Power Rangers Ranger Slayer figure. This was done by Dravenheart. Here is how they describe the making of this figure:

For those who don't know, in an alternate reality in the Power Rangers comic, Tommy remained evil and became Lord Drakkon. After this, he killed most of the Rangers and turned Kimberly into his main soldier, the Ranger Slayer.

Sculpted up the right arm gauntlet, belt, morpher, left arm, shoulder pad, collar, upper torso, bracers on her upper legs, knees, and hands. Modified and resculpted the helmet a bit, too. Second head was also from BossFight with the hair sculpted on. Cape was cut from material and glued on. Need to find a different kind of material to work with. Bow was a random one I had on hand, completely resculpted. I'll be posting a before and after short of both the figure and the bow on Instagram later this week. Dravenheart2012 for those interested. Full repaint, and finally all done!

Recipe:

Base - BossFightStudio Female Blank
Bow - possibly a Lord of the Rings figure?
Helmet - MMPR 2010 Pink Ranger

So, over a year ago they brought some Street Fighter characters into Power Rangers Legacy Wars and made Ryu into a Ranger himself. A few months ago, they brought them back and added a Chun Li Blazing Phoenix Ranger into the mix. Since they're here to stay this time, I don't know if they'll introduce any additional Street Fighter Rangers, but I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed for Cammy.

Head was still from the BossFight female blank. I just sanded it down a bit, then fully sculpted on the helmet. Everything else on the figure was sculpted on. The bracelets, skirt pieces, belt, gloves, armbands, chest armor, top of the boots, and even the yellow stripes going down her legs. After all that, a full repaint, and all done!

This is actually my first Joker figure. How long ago did I start making figures? About ten years or so, and this is the first time I've ever actually made a Joker. A great one to start with, too. I'm not sure where the head originated from. The guy who commissioned the piece sent it to me.

Cut and dremeled the feet to fit. Sculpted up the pants, vest, collar, tie, and sleeves. Had to dremel the head a decent bit to finally get it to fit. Full repaint, and all done!

I've been talking about trying to revisit this guy for ages. I made a couple renditions of him ages ago, but was never quite satisfied with them. Finally, recently got to go back and not just remake the two I did before, but fix up all of his variations. Stone, Crystalline, Metallic, and the Magma transformation in the Metallic variation.

After I swapped out all the parts, everything was sculpted. Boots, pants, skirt sections, stone arms, stone chest, straps and shoulder pads, facemask, and hood. After all that, full repaints, and all done!

One of the very first customs I ever made was a Dexter Morgan. That was back when I was focusing a lot of my work on the Wolverine Origins bodies and was still trying to work out what paints I liked. That one was a bit more of a casual wear design. Since I've been revisiting a ton of old projects this year, I decided to give him another go. It helped that AngryNomad shrunk a Dexter head.

Sculpted up the full shirt and the pants. Swapped out the lower legs, and made the pants a little bit baggier over the boots. Also had to redo the boots slightly to they were a little shorter. Full repaint, topped off with a random knife, and done!

I've been considering this off and on for a while, and I've finally tried my first diorama piece. At one point a couple years ago I considered switching to display pieces so I could focus more on the details than the mobility. Coming off making a commission where I had to sacrifice some aspects of the design to maintain articulation, and it bothered me a bit. But, I didn't like the idea of trying to ship a diorama. Anyway, I was asked locally to fix up a She-Ra and we went all out with a full display. The idea was to mimic the image of her standing on a cliff with the Crystal Castle framing her in the distance. It was a ton of fun, and I have more ideas I want to try, but not sure when I'll get to them.

Figure first. Resculpted the bracers slightly. Sculpted up the shirt, collar, and armor sections across the torso. Cut and glued the skirt in place. Rounded out the back with sculpt, then sculpted on the belt. Sculpted up the boots, and resculpted the headpiece. Had to cut and resculpt the sword a little bit, and add the gem. Cut out some cloth, glued it to her back, gave her a full repaint, and all done!

And the display. Started with a wooden base. Something from a craft store. Sculpted everything on top of it. Started with the stone look, then fixed up the castle base. After that, I sculpted up the central tower piece, and then painstakingly sculpted on every single other detail on top of that. I actually did use a couple small gems at the top. I keep forgetting about those. Glued them on to make my life a little easier. It is most definitely the most complex and intricate thing I have ever made from scratch. It's not perfect, but She-Ra hides the major flaws and she's happy with the final product, and that's what matters. Full repaint, and all done!

This is not an easy figure to get ahold of. And while I've gotten better at sculpting, I still don't really want to make the helmets from scratch. Or Saba. The White Ranger is the one Ranger from the original series that I haven't made. I mean, unless you want to get really technical and count the Alien Rangers too. But I don't. I think the only other original based Rangers I want to make now would be a gender swapped set. At least for red, blue, yellow, pink, black, and green.

Sculpted up the full chest armor, which took a couple layers to get on there. Sculpted on the armbands, bracers, leg bracers, and the belt. Dremeled into the head a decent bit so it would sit properly, too. Gave him a full repaint, including some very tedious detail work on Saba, and all done!

I've made the original Power Rangers team three times now, but only once have I tried the Green Ranger. Back during my first run through the group. I've wanted to revisit him for ages, but have consistently kept putting him off. Getting better at sculpting has definitely made this concept a lot easier.

Sculpted up the full chest armor, armbands, belt, morpher, and the bands around his boots and gauntlets. Dremeled in the head a bit so it would fit better, gave him a full repaint, and all done!

Man, this was a crazy piece to work on. And expensive. Whew. I was asked to try an Infinity War Thanos on a Shao Kahn body and initially I loved the idea. The problem, however, was the material. Various pieces on the Storm Collectibles figures are soft rubber, which is tough to easily sculpt over. So, this became quite the endeavor. I was still determined to get him finished, though.

Picked up the head cast from eBay, but PlasticCurves also has it available, along with variant heads. Since the torso was so annoying to work with, I had to sculpt the suit in layers. I smoothed over the upper torso bit by bit, then sculpted another layer that I could actually cut into. Then I sculpted the last over the armor over it. Added sculpt to the upper legs and lower torso, as well. Sculpted up the belt, waist, kneepads, and the full boots. Sanded down the straps that remained on the shoulders, then sculpted on the full gauntlets. Hands are made soft too, so I stuck with fists for simpler modifications. Cut off the blades and properly resculpted the hands. From there, a full repaint, and all finished!

My favorite character from Infinity War. Ebony Maw was definitely the stand out member of the Black Order. They gave him powers of telekinesis in the movie, and I think it was a great improvement on him from the comics.

Sculpted up the pants, sleeves, full torso, and skirt sections. The head was a Frankenstein cast. I wanted something a bit larger than I used for his comic look. Or, more specifically, something longer. Cut the nose off, reworked the head, and sculpted up the hair. Gave him two larger hands, a full repaint, and all finished up!

Avengers Endgame is coming up, so this was good timing to finally fix up some more Black Order figures. Seems like I'll have a few of those in the lineup, this time also focusing mostly on the movie lineup. Interestingly enough, pretty much everyone else is pretty close to their comic designs, save for Proxima Midnight. She's actually pretty immensely different.

Swapped out the lower legs then moved into the sculpting. Sculpted up the armor on both arms, the bands on her right leg, her knees, and her gold boot. Smoothed over her torso, front and back, and sculpted up the horns and hair. Cut the blade off the spear, then sculpted up the trident section and the bottom. Full repaint, and all done!
