Well they wanted the figure by their Wonder Festival ( which was held last Sunday). Obviously, I could not make it. I was so burned out on this project, I took a break from it for over a week.
Anyway, I am pretty much done. So sick of looking at this thing... spend too many hours on it.... Anyway hope you guys like her.

You make the most life-like models I've seen. Excellent job.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

Thanks for the kind words, Turbofurball and Nightwalker
Hope Roswell Japan can pull off decent castings of her. I am supposed to get 2 copies.

Well if they can't it's on them, 'cause you've got all the good detail in there!

I tried to part her in the way that they can mold easier also easier to put her together . I am sure they can pull it off. Fingers crossed.

They 3D printed many of small parts so got those crappy textures on them. They replaced sculpted chains on her crotch ornament, which was fine, but they put just one size of 9 chains. Kinda miffed about that. Also their instruction sheet is unfriendly for beginners. Well at least I can use this as a Christmas gift.

I volunteer as a Christmas Gift Reciever!

haha, all jokes aside it must be pretty awesome to have your own sculpture make it onto the market as a kit, did they commission you for another Fury Road figure just so we know if there's something to look for from you in the future?

Haha Sorry Taipan
I am shipping it to my friend at Amoktime toys. It used to be exciting to have a kit or a figure I sculpted on a market. Not much anymore since everyone is a critic and likes to post that somewhere on-line. It is often disheartening to read your work is bashed senselessly.

Roswell is considering commissioned me to sculpt Max from Fury Road, but I am not into it much as there are a few decent action figures already out. A lot of details on main characters. Working on Furiosa kinda burn me out.... I would rather sculpt few War boys.
