Edward Elric Customized Figure by DragonsAndBeasties Edward Elric Customized Figure by DragonsAndBeasties
So, I love Pinky St. figures [link] I find them stupidly cute, and I have a small army of them on my desk. They do make the odd anime character, but not the one I wanted, which was an Edward Elric Pinky. I rarely watch anime anymore, but Full Metal Alchemist is still one of my very favorite shows. I own both versions of the anime, and still watch them now and then. I recently rewatched FMA: Brotherhood and decided it was time to make this pinky happen!

I've never customized a toy before. I started by butchering a few of my least favorite pinky parts, and building on them. All the parts are interchangeable. I wanted to be able to swap out Ed's red coat and show just his automail. It's the tiniest cutest automail ever :XD:

I used colored Premo Sculpey clay for the customizations, and acrylic craft paint for some of the details. I baked the sculpey right onto the plastic without much trouble, though it was a delicate operation since the plastic gets super soft and can warp or melt.

It was nice to work on something a little different and just for myself. I love my Ed pinky! Kinda makes me wanna do another character, it was so much fun! And on that note no I DO NOT TAKE PINKY COMMISSIONS :XD:

do you know what nendoroids are? they are kind of like pinkys, but they have interchangable faces as well, and most take the chibi look, however, there are nendoroids that are proportional to the actual anime character.... be careful for bootlegs though! (bootlegs are cheaper, way less quality, and they are produced and sold illegally....) i suggest to look up good smile company on google if you want to take a look at nendoroids~ theyre really cute, i wish i had some, but i has no money D:

I just love it! Edward is so cool! Nice work! I haven't watched FMA in a long time. I so wanna watch it now. I never have time to sit and watch much now though... I still haven't seen the end. haha. People are always trying to tell me the end to and i'm like "lalala not listening!" haha. I'm not a fan of spoilers. haha. Still, keep it up! This is awsome!

I got all excited when I saw this and almost asked for a commission like this one, then I read the description :/ Ah well, this is soooo cute!! Totally favorited ^^
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
I would totally do customized pinky figures if I had access to more parts. They were super popular a few years ago and people would sell all sorts of parts and pieces but not anymore. You have to buy the full sets to get them now and they're kinda pricey ^^;
LeiliaClay Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I know you posted this a while ago, but I just have to comment on how cute this is! I stopped watching most anime years ago, but recently have been getting the anime itch again. XD I decided to try out FMA(I know, I'm so behind the times) since it seems to have a pretty big following, and I am completely in love with it! I just finished the Brotherhood series, so I think I'll go check out the original series now as well. :D

That tiny automail is so freaking adorable. o_o I'd never thought about modifying an existing toy before, that seems brilliant! Now I really want to try something like that!

Sorry for the rambling! I'm just a little hyper right now! XD
DragonsAndBeasties Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Haha no worries! I thoroughly enjoy geeking out over FMA myself! I watched a lot of anime back in college, but don't really keep up with it much anymore. Most of the new stuff I have tried to watch has been...lacking. Or obnoxious. =P

FMA is probably my favorite show ever. I still watch it regularly, it's just so good! I own both versions, and love them equally! The original is a wee bit slow compared to Brotherhood, but has a lot of good stuff. I remember waiting each week for the new episodes of the original to come out in Japan (oh man now I feel old, that was 9 years ago!) and watch the subs. It was the highlight of my week. I finally got my husband who doesn't care for anime, to watch brotherhood with me and even he loved it. Of course now anything else I show him will never be as awesome :XD:

I always wanted an Ed pinky. They don't make many anime ones, so I was bummed they didn't do FMA. Once I realized, "Hey... I totally have the ability to make my own!" I went to work. Now he hangs out on my desk all day with me :D
LeiliaClay Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, I'm pretty old school when it comes to anime series, I watched boatloads back in high school. I realized how far behind I am since selling at conventions, so I've been trying to catch up some.

I really was not expecting FMA to be as good as it is. My husband and I decided to start watching it just for fun, and we got so into it that we practically marathoned the whole Brotherhood series in a week! XD I would definitely consider it one of my top favorite anime series now, right next to Rurouni Kenshin and Cowboy Bebop. :) I'm curious to see what the original series is like, I'll probably be starting that one when I get back from Seattle.

Al is my favorite character. I really want to sculpt something of him, but that armor is really intimidating. o_o I'll probably attempt it anyways, should be an interesting challenge. ;)
