View Full Version : ROC BARONESS ("The Rise of Cobra" Version)

23rd August 2009, 12:59 PM
The Baroness is my 2nd G.I.Joe movie "The Rise of Cobra" custom in 1:18 scale (3 3/4 inch).
Everyone was disappointed with what Hasbro has brought us with the Baroness ROC figure, even Sienna Miller herself was disgusted.
So again, im on the task of makin' a better Baroness action figure.
My plan is to just modify the head, but i took a little further more and added some details on the body like adding two holster guns on the legs, painting the fingerstips in flesh tones (based on the actual costume), and repainting the entire body.

On the head, i dremmeled the top part of the hair and resculpted a new hair line, and also some more hairsculpts that you can see on the work in progress photo on my website. I sanded and resculpted some portions of the face to eliminate that exaggerated smirk, trimmed down the jaw and repainted the whole face.
With the glasses that came with the figure, it was too huge on her face so i re-shaped and repainted with a darker color.
Now, i wanted her to have the clear version of the glasses too so i made a cut out out of hard clear plastics.
I would have resculpted a full hair cause i hate the gap between the hair and face... but i was thinking of the interchangeable glasses as how can that be achievable, so i stuck with the original hair in order for the glasses to fit.

Although im not quite happy with the end result, this is i think the best i could do... hope it has a little bit of resemblance to the movie Baroness. (*crossing my fingers*).

i wanna show the first face paint i did with the slightly open mouth...

then i repainted the lips with the closed mouth...

with the clear glasses...

without glasses...

fark, you have got some serious talents to be scuplting/modding at a high detail with such a small scale figure....good work!!

I prefer the mouth open and teeth showing face scupt with the dark glasses. The resemblance in the first pic is pretty much spot on!!!

thanks bruticus.
i have thought in the beginning that the open mouth version is better, then again i thought it would look silly when she's on a battle pose. :)
