In the mean time, on topic for this thread.... how long do you think it'll take for these cuties to be released?  I'm already trying to sew stuff for a doll I know nothing about, LOL


Apologies, Peaches.  I had put up several pictures earlier but removed them shortly after posting, having determining them to be less than worthy.  

I will gather some of what I feel are my better quality photos - along with some brand new shots to share.  I sincerely appreciate your interest, and I absolutely refuse to disappoint you…  Wink


As with all art, these works are in perpetual motion - ever transitioning into what they will become; each time that I look at something previously considered adequate, I find something particular about it that I’d like to improve upon (and to display anything that I feel that way about feels rather like a compromise of my own aesthetic standards).  

I appreciate your patience and intend to make the wait worth your while...


PS:  In response to your question; the one that I have on order has a projected arrival between late March and early April...  So, perhaps sew slowly?

Mmn, I don’t believe you, Peaches; too much buzz about you…  

That said, you’re not bugging anybody.  LOL.  


And you’re in the right place; we are all ancient children…

We are also, each and all, occasionally annoying…


You just be yourself, young lady, and feel welcome.

LOL, thanks Smile... One thing I'm wondering about for these tiny girls is the hair. It looks too course for the size. I've rerooted vinyl dolls before, but nothing this small or, I presume, hard (if it is made like other 1/6 heads). Do you think it would be possible to rerooted them with mohair?

If you can get the skull cap off, you should be able to do that. TBLeague has been glueing the skull caps on their heads of late, so not sure how easy it would be to do — you’d have to be very careful if you were trying to cut through the seam, or you could damage the paint work on the face.

Peaches, is your interest in replacing the wigging with mohair a foregone conclusion, or are you intent on doing so only if it is, indeed, considerably coarse?  

Honestly, I see no reason to presume that the hair on these figures should be any different from that of other Phicen Sculpts, which is generally not coarse at all.

View user profile
Thanks guys! Actually I'm not intent on changing them if it looks good. But part of the fun is to make them look as realistic as possible. Also, I could change the hair color Smile if I am most likely going to ruin them, I won't do it though.

Thanks for having a thread about this one here! Smile

While I don't have all that many 1/12th figures -- I am a more 'traditional' SW collector and mostly have 3.75" figures and 1/6th figures (obviously, lol) -- I do have a couple of Figuarts and a few 6inch Black Series, and I'm ALWAYS looking for ways to make more variations of Padme to go along with my gazillion Anakin figures (in all scales), so if I can find a way to put a different headsculpt (either Figuarts or Black Series) onto one of these, then I might just consider one. Even it needed to be repainted to match the skintone. And lack of clothing is not problem....I'll either make her a tiny outfit, or....she can she just snuggle with Anakin under his cloak, like this...

I would never be able to paint anything that small, but good find. I’ve been searching for 1/12 female heads, and haven’t found one.

And aww, yeah, I feel you. I need to get one of those LED-lighted magnifying glasses -- would probably help immensely, I just always keep getting distracted by 1/6 shinies forgetting to order one. Razz


Regarding the 1/12th Marvel heads... just wanted to mention that not all '1/12' figures are always exactly the same scale. For instance, a little while ago I made the mistake of thinking that Marvel Legends would be compatible with the Black Series (Hasbro's 6 inch SW line) and maybe even Figuarts. I had found (what I thought was) the PERFECT body to use for a custom version of a character. But when I had it in-hand, my heart immediately sunk as I suspected it might be too tall. And indeed, it was both too tall to stand next to my Black Series male figure (let alone the Figuarts who are a tad smaller still), and it's head was MASSIVE compared to the heads on those other figures as well, so that when I tried the head I'd planned to use on it, it looked like a pinhead (and thus I presume the opposite would be true of trying the Marvel Legends head onto one of the Black Series or Figuarts bodies, and it would turn out as a bobble head). Very frustrating, but... lesson learned. ;p

Anyhoo, not trying to be a downer, but just wanted to caution you that not all of the 1/12 figures are necessarily compatible with other brands or even with other *lines* of figures put out by the same company, so temper your expectations on that score. Smile

Carrying on from that, these might not be the style you are looking for, but if you are wanting to customize 1/12th figures,  S.H. Figuarts have a customizable jointed body. The headsculpt that comes with it is of the more stylized variety, but with the right paint job  it might look ok (it is also bald, so would more easily be able to affix the mohair, or you could just swap the head with something else that was compatible).

Thought  I'd mention these just in case ^.^

Ah, looks like I made a bad purchase then Smile  However, I'm sure modding them will be fun, and if there are bodies I can get for them, that's fine too Smile It'll just have to be some time in the future.  I saw them and thought they were nicely detailed from what I could see, pretty heads Smile  Too bad it probably won't work, however this taught me to be patient, and wait at least for the bodies so I can evaluate what might work and what won't Very Happy  Thanks for the heads up, (pun wasn't intended, but ha ha) @skywalkersaga Very Happy

Oh, BTW, I use my phone a lot, and get lazy/frustrated with trying to type, LOL. But wow, I love your Anakin and Padme, so nicely made!

View user profile
Ahh, I'm sorry, Peaches, I didn't mean to rain on your parade! It might *not* be bad purchase -- as I don't have experience with that precise figure or headsculpt, so I cannot say for sure that it won't fit. I just didn't want someone else going through the same frustration/disappointment that I did. :3

And thank you!! I cannot take credit for those ... they are S.H. Figuarts by Bandai. And imo, that tiny lil Padme has the best likeness of any Padme figure so far! Hot Toys will no doubt eventually put one (or several out), but in the meantime the Figuarts Padme is the best official version .... she's simply adorable! <3

(And don't worry, I am extremely impatient most of the time as well, and often 'jump the gun' with these things, and have made many a mistake. But I am driven by my exasperation at companies like Hasbro and Hot Toys for always being so damn slow at putting out examples of my favourite characters, lol. I'm TIRED of waiting, damnit. ;p )

Yah, I can imagine! I mean, you'd think Hot Toys would already have the Star Wars goods out, but I bet its a matter of licenses Sad

I wonder about these heads because they're listed as self-cast by someone with a toy store in the states. Very confusing, and I'll just have to wait until they arrive to know what's up with them Smile

My guess is it’s a recast of a Marvel Legends head. If it is it’ll be smaller than it was originally.

Ah, thanks so much!

It's definitely a  matter of taste, but I'm liking how the hair on the headsculpt looks....more than I did in the promo pics. Nothing against bangs/fringe, it was *cute* but at such a small scale it didn't seem to sit quite right (and as you noted, in the promos it looked a bit on the 'coarse' side).  I'm not sure if they ended up going sans-bangs for both skintone versions, but I'm liking the look on the suntan one they have pictured, at least.

Some have complained about the hands and feet not quite matching the skin colour, and well...sometimes photography exaggerates such things, so I'll reserve judgement on that for now. But even if they aren't a perfect match, it doesn't bother me all that much (even the regular 1/6 size tbleague figures don't always have hands and feet that are a perfect match).

What I'm most curious to see is how she looks scale-wise next to other 1/12 figures....

Actually, I don’t think those were bangs in the promo pics. If you look closer, they had some sort of lace edging they were using like a head-band.

Yah, @skywalkersaga, I figure the match on hands and feet will be what we expect from regular phicen bodies. They did list the headband on the list of items, so I wasn't expecting bangs. I wish they could make all these bodies with a small bust option because large busts just make them look fat IMO. So exciting some are being shipped! Can't wait for a review and more pictures

Cool. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Do you think she'll have wings? If you want wings, there are a couple of folks on Etsy that make really nice ones (the trick is attaching them).

I don't have any one specific link for exactly what I'm looking for, but here on Etsy are a bunch of options (you'll have to go through and find what you think will work best):

I'm kind of anxious, I haven't received mine yet and if they're starting to sell out, is there a chance the dealer I bought from while on pre-order will not have sufficient quantities? I bought from Ekia hobbies if anyone is familiar with them and their practices?? They're still taking preorders and say the expected release date is March 31st.

Maybe they're later because we're in the USA?

View user profile
oh gosh, that's crazy that they are selling out! I was waiting til i could afford one, but as always....I might be too late....

Hope you get yours soon! I know how much you've been looking forward to it!
