Continuing with the build of Hoihoi-san. In our last WiP, I built up to the waist, this time around we’ll take it close to the end. So, continuing from where we left off, it’s time to do the upper body. With the pieces snipped out, which have the following.
Fairly simple build for the torso. The USB cover is one part that is not painted, so you’ll want to paint that to look more in line with the actual colors. Next up a comparison shot of a completed arm with uncompleted arm.
The figure comes with two hands for each arm, a standard closed fist, and semi-open fist for holding the weapons.
So with the arms and torso completed, we attach to the waist, and here’s a front and back shot.
It may be hard to tell, but I’ve done some slight panel lining in the back ribbon in light gray to help accent it.
So next up, the head, and hair. The kit comes with three “inner faces” so to say, but the only difference is two of the faces look to the left, and one to the right. Why two to the left I don’t know. The back hair as well is fairly big, but snaps together to one giant seamless back hair piece. Along with that there are two side tails as well.
Last we have the ront of the hair, the bangs, followed by the hairband bunny ears.
The bangs pop in above the forehead while the back hair is shoved into the back of the head. Gaps are hidden by the hairband and side tails.
Pop the head on top of the torso and we get….
Next up, the final bits and pictures, and thoghts in the final WiP for Hoihoi-san.
