Preparing to Fire by Lalam24 Preparing to Fire by Lalam24
The figure was sculpted using Super Sculpey, and painted with Modelmaster acrylics. The joints are a compilation of Revoltech joints, Hobby Base joints, Kotobukiya ball joints, and scrapped joints from figures I hadlying around. The figure itself stands almost EXACTLY 4 inches tall. The face is removable, allowing for different expressions (of which I have yet to sculpt), a long with his hat, allowing for different, more dynamic posing effects. He currently has 6 incherchangeable hands; 3 for his right, and 2 for his left.

The hookshot contains a pegged hook that can be pulled out, and combined with a chain.

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note!

I sculpted it and sanded the living hell out of it. It's mediocre, at best, so don't use it as a reference for quality.

Really well done. I love how well the expression on his face works to enhance his overall pose! How did you take the ball joints out of those other figures?

A lot of them were pieces that were already seperate. [link] describes what I used and how they were used.

O: And here I was about to scour ebay for this little guy. This is just simply amazing work!! This is what I'm striving for. :D

Very creative and detailed, especially with the future interchangeable faces and the usable hookshot!

Haha, I may sell it in the future.. but, for some reason, I really doubt it. Even if someone offered a really outrageous price, I like having this thing around.

Thanks for the comments, though!

Absolutely fantastic work, well done. I love the detail you've included - especially the "working" hookshot and the inter-changeable faces. Very cool.

Working hookshot is epic. They should have come to you for their official figurines!

It doesn't work like the actual hookshot -- the chained piece is on seperate pegs, so you can swap out a short little piece so it looks as if it's contracted, or the chain. I couldn't create a working chamber at the scale :/

:iconrueyeet:
rueyeet Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
Well yeah, but the fact that it does anything AT ALL at that scale impresses the heck out of me.

Technically, Link wouldn't be able to use a Hookshot, since this looks like the Ocarina of Time model. But that's just a technicality, and has nothing to do with this.

I would be able to, but it's already been painted -- and I'd rather not ruin the paintjob.
