QUADREX ITW repaint


Hey guys !

Sometime ago i bought this quadrex figure from itw

">Image


I know that this custom bootleg whatever people call them are not great figures, but i saw beneath the awful paint that there was a really decent sculpt, i know is way off the kenner proto, and little to no articulation, but to me it does the job.

So i removed the paint, sorry the arms are next.

Hope you guys like the process, next i will primed the figure, then will see.


regards

To bad you couldn't put him in a sauna and sweat suit so he can cut some weight. emoticon

He is off from the Kenner prototype, but the torso and head are actually decent looking. If it wasn't for what appears to be massive thighs he would look somewhat normal in comparison to other super powers figures. I look forward to seeing how this turns out. It looks as though the lower arms are of center or something. Do you plan to remove them and try to fix that also?

HAHAHA love the sauna joke!

the arms are a little bit off but that is because the figure looks like a semi pose.

this thing is in limbo. Part figure part statue, but if the paint job does justice it will look a lot better.

Primed up the sculpt really looks a lot better. Tons of details in there that weren't as clear while it was white.

Re: QUADREX ITW repaint


Great job so far on this project. For the paint job, there are a couple choices if you want to go with one of the concept art designs:

Of course you can also come up with your own paint design.

Can't wait to see the finished product.
