The New Mutants (Series I - Cannonball, Moonstar, Karma, Sunspot, Magik)

The New Mutants
Moonstar, Karma, Cannonball, Sunspot, Magik


Really Sorry it's been a long time coming but been VERY busy at work as well as working on some other paperheroey projects (thats u Jef)

So, as you may have noticed, it isn't Nightcrawler. I am still working on him, but I want the body to be perfect before I realease him and im still not digging him entirely.

On to the Paperheroes...

First up I thought I'd do a variant of Cannonball in his current New Mutants costume to go with the rest of the team. Arms can be positioned up or down as you choose. The flame effect that was in the previous release is in the file, despite not being on all the promo images.

Moonstar turned out pretty well. Quite a basic figure. though the hair may seem complicated, it's just the same as Jean/psylockes etc.
The dagger might be a bit fiddly but shouldn't be anything too bad.

I'm actually really disapointed with how all the photos of Karma turned out. They really don't do the model justice, it looks a lot better in person. Her face probably took the most effort in this model as I was trying to give some characters more distinc ethnicities than any of my other models have.

Despite the effects used, this should be a very basic figure. It's a bit of a cheap one from me, using different body parts to create a new model (Look at me, I'm Toy-Biz) but I think the whole model comes together on its own.

I have to warn you with this one. It does get DAMN tricky with her arm+Sword. As always, I've tried to make it clear in instructions but if you have any other problems I can try posting more information to clarify anything.
All in all the sword turned out A LOT better than I thought it would so I'm pretty proud of her :)

There's my team so far. I know there are a few more, ie Doug, Warlock and Wallpapergirl... i mean Magma sorry... but they will all have to wait. Have a few other models on my mind now... hopefully I'll actually get some time to do them.

Happy building!

Hope you all enjoy them as much as my other models.

Any comments welcome
