    Custom POP figures :: Wave 1 :: She-ra, Castaspella, Frosta & Entrapta

    Hello everyone!
    We finally finished one of our projects... we want to complete the POP universe, using the 80s POP figures as bases (with a few exceptions here and there), but not as girly, so we chop the rooted hair, threw away the glossy capes and skirts, and molded their hair, clothes and weapons.

    We decided to make them in waves, consisting in 4 figures per wave. First one includes: She-ra, Castaspella, Frosta & Entrapta.
    We're quite happy with the result, and hope you guys and girls are, too!

    Enjoy the pictures:

    Catra,
    Scorpia,
    Angella,
    Glimmer.

    The hair on all of these girls is just amazing, perticularly Castaspella and She-Ra.

    It is really exciting watching you guys refine your style. It is definitely getting closer and closer to the designs seen on the show. And your detail work is really improving! Frosta's face looks particularly right for the character. Colors are vibrant and popping...

    I think there's still some room for improvement, especially when looking at the back of She-Ra's head - the hair looks gloopy, but like all your other past shortcomings, will surely improve if you guys keep it up as you have been!

    Really impressive. Keep it up!

    My votes are for Catra, Mermista, Angella and Scorpia!

    Hi guys, what material do you use to sculpt the hair and clothes on these figures. I am assuming it is something that you apply directly onto the figure and then it cures as it drys?

    Thanks again! We really like how the hair, specially on those 2 figures, turned out. Thanks for voting, too!

    Yes, we use miliput or epoxy, depending on our mood and what we want to do, and use enamels to paint. Hope that helps!

    We'll follow your advice about making a poll for voting. We'll do so in a couple of days, it will be easier for people to vote.

    and I vote Glimmer!

    hahhaha don't do that, I want to see her! Show it to us when she's finished.

    Thanks for your words! The bad thing about the original POP figures was that they were WAY too intended for girls... they were dolls and not action figures, and we wanted to make POP figures that boys would like, too, so thank you!
    and thanks for voting, too!

    Thank you, LadyAngora! We have considered doing a She-Ra with rooted hair, and we will surely do once we make the rest of the characters.

    Those are awesome! I love your approach. Personally I love the frily skirts and glitter, so my customs are the exact opposite. But you have done a phenominal job!
