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:
