Fallen One – Dad Custom

Allow me to start this review by stating, I am biased, there is a conflict of interest here.  My dad made this custom for me so as far as I’m concerned, it’s the best one I’ve ever had made.  If that bothers you, read something else, or just look at the pictures.

Fallen  One

Packaging

This figure did not come in a box / on a card.

Paint

This is probably the single most evenly painted customer I have owned or seen.  Fallen One wasn’t the hardest, most detailed paint application I could have dreamed up for my father to tackle, but that only makes how great it came out even better.  The nice deep blue is highlighted with a shimmery gloss that captures the Fallen One very well.

 

Articulation

As per usual, with a custom, I’m not touching it, so I won’t say much about articulation.  Great care was taken here though to avoid paint rub and it shows.

Character Likeness

He looks just like the Fallen One and that’s what I was hoping for!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accessories

Does hair count as an accessory? I think so, and here, it came out amazing paint wise.  I know the Fallen One has longer hair, but an exceptional thing was done with the hair at the length that it already is.

Overall

My favorite custom ever.  As said before, I’m biased here.

Displayed somewhere I might see it – Displayed, it’s good, I like it, not as much as others.
Displayed but buried in the back – Not all that great, but no other options for this figure
Stored* – It’s really not worth displaying. 
*This will be caveat-ed, if the figure is excellent but is being moved out in favor of a better version of the same character, this will be explained.
