Suffix to say, it was the initiatives of fellow members Berndm01, Casual_Collector, Rex & a few others that led to this awesome group project. Major kudos to you guys. 21C has a huge influence on how my 1/6 realm took off, so this project is a no brainer. Makes me itching to revamp more sets, will see how far the creative drive can push. Anyway............

Matilda

Original boxset (pix courtesy of PistolPete's 21C Checklist)



Revamp


Innerflap artwork


What I have done....
•Head - Headplay Angie head with repainted eyes. I removed her stock pony tail to minimize her Tomb Raider image as much as possible. The donor pony tail came from the buns of Hasbro Leia princess. I intend to reroot her head sometime in the future,so the hair will be discarded anyway. Since it has been set in shape by the hair spray. it's perfect to convert it into ponytail. Talking about recycling.......
•Body - TTL
•wetsuit/boots/long coat - Triad, ZC and BBi respectively.
•Web harness - custom work using various junk parts.
•Gloved hands - Takara. The open palm left hand is sort of a homage to the original Matilda which also has an open palm left hand. :)
• Sig & MP9 - Both are 21C pieces. Repainted/reworked into more update look.
• 36DM7 - An original concept G36 based 7.62 Designated Marksman from many moons ago. Thought she would love to have one in her arsenal.

















Hardware......
Personalized Brügger & Thomet MP9. Was planning to use an official one I did long time ago, sadly it was nowhere to be found. So I built a whole new one instead. The double mag was obviously influenced from the IDF's Uzi clip setup, always have a soft spot on that configuration.

What I have done....
Almost all pf the parts are either reworked & weathered stock 21C pieces.
•Helmet - Weathered stock piece with donor Medicom face shield and helmet lining mounted protective eye-wear pulled out from an early HT goggle. Surefire and straps are made from junk parts.
•Head/body - repainted BBi Raider .
•Gloves _ Repainted/weathered BBi pieces.
•Breather - Reworked HT Kyle Reese piece, breather tube is stock 21C piece with brass rod insert so that it can be bent into proper shape.
•outfit/harness/chainsaw - Weathered stock 21C pieces.
•Breather tank - Reworked/repainted 21C pieces w/ new markings.

Thanks gents. :D

Bern....Among a few 21C boxsets I have, Matilda is probably the one that I wanted so much to rework into what she suppose to look like largely because of high hope I have when she was announced and led to some disappointment towards the actual set afterwards.

Jeffa...the boots are from their Kathy boxset.

Gaiagear, it's all for the love of the game.
Those are truly phenomenal updates of truly classic figures. Hopefully, some manufacturers (*cough cough* CAL-TEK!) will see the success of 21C's innovation and daring and follow in their footsteps.

Both amazing reworks! Love the Mathilda... wow, I would've bought that figure had it come like that. I would buy it now and I usually skip most of the fem figs. The weapons are crazy!

I had such high hopes for Matilda. She was such a disapointment. I remember when the figure came out, the CYGirls just cleaned her clock. If she would have just looked like the girl in the painting, it might have helped.

gaiagear, You have done her justice. This is a great piece and a wonderful custom.

Wow awesome work as usual mate. I love the old 21st Cent figures as they were so cheap at the time and were a great start into the hobby.
