The score of a lifetime…

And no, I’m not talking about Jewel Staite or Kristen Bell. I’m talking about another new acquisition and a first for me: a one-of-a-kind custom figure…

I’ve read Toyfare in the past and been aware of this as a past-time for many figure collectors. The act of bashing figures, mixing-and-matching, and even sculpting entirely new parts to create a unique and one-of-a-kind figure is something I greatly admire, but would never have time to do myself…

Enter:

Jin Saotome had a figure on E-bay that I knew I couldn’t do without… Especially after finishing the game the day before!

That’s right! Bioshock 2‘s BIG SISTER!!!

I have to say, this is one of the COOLEST customs I have EVER seen… The glowing portholes, the artistic blood splatters… I can practically hear her high-pitched scream just looking at this thing…

I know most of my figures revolve around anime, (with the clear exception of Halo), but I just could not resist this… And I have the added pleasure of knowing I own the only one in existence! I definitely and without reservation recommend Jin’s work. He does mostly GI Joe and superhero-related stuff, but I will definitely be keeping my eye out for any more figures like this in the future!
