Logan was a good movie and I think Dafne Keene was the actual star of the show.
Been a fan of the character ever since she was first introduced in the books being the reason why I bought the 2 versions from Asmus.
As usual - it need some mods and so here they are :

Version 1 right out of the box :


(I've always been annoyed with single jointed knees and elbows - it's just so restrictive)
Version 1 & 2 modded for better articulation around the knees and to enable a more natural kneeling position :
This is teen body Ver. 2 marked for knee surgery (after successfully experimenting on Ver. 1)


Knee joint replacement in progress :


Version 1 modded and with a custom angry face and home made foot claw :



Version 2 modded, styled and weathered with generous amounts of blood applied :


I also had a few loose parts lying around and so decided to try out a TBL S27B body (the one everyone has been complaining about that nothing fits).
Well - they were all right : nothing fits - and not without some work. She came out okay but I cannot see myself using this petite sized body with other 1/6 scale parts/clothing.

For size reference :
Laura next to Gimli.


Laura next to one of the Gemini girls I upgraded (have to find the time to take more pics of her!!) :


That's all folks !
Thanks for dropping by !

Very nicely done. The surgery appears to be fully successful, and your customized figures work beautifully -- in all the angry, gory way you want them to appear. Nice photography, too.

The updated articulation and foot claw look awesome! Well worth is, seeing the more dynamic poses.

And you're right on the new smaller TBL bodies being a bit tricky to find a use for. I actually think you got a good fit with the clothes above. I've actually bought 4 of them so far, and they've been PERFECT to go with the Original Effect heads I've been using for all my House of Seasons figures. But since most of their outfits are all scratchbuilt, I haven't had any issues with clothes fitting yet.

Better articulation is always a plus to me and you have done a great job. Nicely done.

She’s fantastic. Love all the blood spatter on the angry version. Excellent mods.

Excellent job! Where did the replacement knee joints come from? They look familiar but I can't place them...lol...Didn't know TBL made a smaller body version, either...wow, I'm way behind the times...anyway, I agree with Stryker, the blood effects you did look great! I think Ver.2 is my favorite Cool

GF, ACM & Stryker - thank you kindly and for dropping by.
I'm glad to be able to share what I know with others who may think of doing the same thing in future.

Thanks Razz - I used the smaller elbow joints from my parts bin for this project.
The one i'm using is the smallest I think of the lot and there is also another slightly larger one I believe.

Thanks Rev and good tip with the OE heads !
I think I have one somewhere in my bin - will have to check and give it a try !
The clothes are from the Gemini figure and since the clothing could not fit any of my other larger female bodies, - I tried it and it worked out okay for a quick parts bash.

Thanks again for dropping by guys !

Beautiful work on the mods. The "after" photos prove just how well-done they are.
