1 VTS Furiosa Modification on Mon Jul 09, 2018 1:28 am

Phicen Body swap + color toning
Arm re-cabling + detailing
Boots small edit for pose-ability
Rifle weathering

Finished her War Rig Steering wheel + Her 2nd head repainted
The 3D file for 1/6 scale Steering wheel is on Thingiverse for anyone wants to 3D print it ( https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2994081 )



And I'm done with Furiosa custom for now (Still working on Max's motorcycle custom)

Always love your work/mods kyekye and this one is no different !
That steering wheel looks absolutely wicked !

I look at mine with a heavy sigh..way too much trouble to replace the body iin addition to cutting off a section of her arm and trying to fit her into those undersized clothing.

Your mods look awesome, but... not to take away from them... you can still see just how undersized her head is compared to the upgraded body. Nice repaint on the head, too.

I agree, beautiful work. I was going to remark that the head didn't look horribly small, just a little. Perhaps you should have waited for the new petite bodies; at any rate if you find it necessary, you could always do the same to it.

Thanks for feedback.
Her head/body relative scale is something I can't do much about.
Thankfully Charlize Theron is 5'-10" with smaller head. I think it's much better proportioned than with its tiny body.

I absolutely love how this came out. And I actually don't agree on the head looking small. Looking at the pic from the movie above, I actually think it looks pretty spot on. I think, because were used to seeing people with hair (especially women), sometimes anyone's head can look a little small with a shaved head.

What body did you go with? I'm guessing from the muscle definition in her arms its either a 22A or 23B. She looks intense as hell! And that steering wheel looks super slick. And any tips on fitting that cybernetic arm on the phicen body? I've been really considering swapping out mine, if it ever arrives.

*I agree on shaved head looking small - volume-wise.
*23B - color toned with pastel + breast reduction
*Thanks. Steering wheel was my personal focus. I just loved the design in the movie
*Arm part has magnet inside. so after cutting the Phicen arm, I put a small metal screw in the metal frame of Phicen. It worked with magnet.

Inspired me to get her after all, although I wonder how long it will take me to get around to any modification.

That's great! Hopefully you didn't pay the full price.
Once you pass the 'pants' part, the rest is piece of cake Very Happy

Oh no, I paid plenty for my stupidity. Should have never canceled my pre-order, but decided to be "smart" for once. Then wanted to pick up some of the parted-out parts. But as the price accumulated, decided it's better to get the whole set. At that point in time the places where it was being sold for the original low price were out of it, so I got it on eBay from China for more money (admittedly, with "free" shipping). By the time it arrived yesterday, I could have had it for the lower price from domestic stores. And I wish I could say that's the only stupid mistake I've made lately. Smile Anyway, it is pretty nice, apart from not being as good as the prototype and of course the diminutive dimensions. One day I will attempt modifications to improve it.

Looks great! I didn't like the figure (but as usual I have not seen the film!) when it came out but you have improved it 100%!

You ordered recently and received already! Man, I'm dying here. I pre-ordered as soon as it was announced, and still haven't received it! Nothing shady, reliable seller, his shipment just hasn't come in yet. Still the wait is killing me! Lol.

I actually got a second head from Monkeydepot (which already arrived!) to add the warpaint too. It really is a beautiful sculpt, but I will admit, after all the devil's advocating I've done, that it definitely is pretty small in hand. That said, I actually REALLY want another head for when those smaller TBL bodies come in.

Speaking of Monkey Depot, last I checked, they had the boxed set in stock for a reasonable price. Maybe I got lucky, with an eBay seller I trust and keep using over and over again. Lucky with service, not price in this case, although it was still better than most others on eBay when I ordered. Smile I also got a second head to modify with war paint. It is quite decent, though the paint work on the promotional images was more impressive. And I, too, was thinking of those smaller TBLeague bodies for the head.

Thanks for the heads up. I may grab a second full figure. Buying 2 Wasteland Rangers was such a good move, as that gear has been gold for customs. Now that Kyekye proved that the Furiosa gear is totally usable on a phicen, I'm seeing a ton of Kitbash potential.
