Yeah, the arms on the female figures are horrendous.
So are those on Daredevil (both versions) and the other smallish guys. Daredevil is not supposed to be small. Neither is Deadpool. They are shoerter than Cap but they are not Spider-Man.
This is falling back on my instinct as an action figure maker, but I think the female figures should have the arms that are on Gambit and Deadpool: contour but not huge.
Make Daredevil and Deadpool from a Sentry figure and you're good to go.
I make Sub-Mariner using a series 1 Cap body and Thor's arms. That gives him the chest and biceps as he's been drawn. I made Black Adam and Captain Marvel (from DC) the same way. Super heroes with the strength to throw around a bazillion tons should look like pro bodybuilders, as they are drawn.
Oh, put AoA Sabretooth's arms on Wonder Man's body and he looks right. The head is wrong, so put Hush Nighting's head on instead and paint the eyes red.
If I can figure out this stuff, having no artistic talent whatever - can't draw, can't sculpt -- whay won't the pros do it? Maybe they are busy being artistes and won't lower themselves to look at the comic books.
I'm trying to make Power Girl. I'm using brown Wolverine's arms and legs, the head from the FF box set IW, the torso from any Chaos Comics female figure . . . and wondering how to put it all together. Chaos figures have great sculpts and awful articulation.
