My search for the Brother Production "Contempory" (as they listed it) Zombie Killer Alice was in vain. So, I bought a parted out Zombie Killer Alice set and dressed up a HT TT Female body, then bought a recast head, and painted it. It was a simple kitbash, and I had fun with it. One thing to note is that Milla has smaller breasts, but I was not able to get a small breasted female figure, so for now this will do until I find the one for her.

This is a kitbash I wanted to make ever since I walked into the 1/6 scale world. I think Kiss of the Dragon was one of the best movies Jet Li has ever done. The simple black clothing he used in the film was easy to replicate in 12".
The body used is an Enterbay Bruce Lee body, I think it fits Jet Li since he has a smaller frame being asian, the Enterbay BL body is smaller than a Hot Toys True Type or a Sideshow Buck/Prometheus body so I thought it was a must if I wanted him to be "in scale".
The head I used is a recast of Enterbay's Fearless Jet Li head, I sculpted the hair and painted it. The recast head wasn't 100% good, I had to fill in the imperfections. This is the second time painting a 1/6 scale head, I used to customize action figures, so painting was easier than sculpting for me. As for the rest of the figure, I dyed his shirt black and asked a friend of mine, who is a tailor, to fix the pants a bit, because originally they were very baggy on this type of 12" body. I did the needle bracelet using some wires and masking tape, it's not the best job, but it serves it's purpose at least.
Hope you like it!
Here's Tom Hardy as Eames finally done (I think) haha. I've had lots of trouble with his lips he has some kind of angelina jolie going on in there, hehe. I'm pretty satisfied with this one. I really really hope I can get it cast so I could modify it to make him into Bronson!, yeah baby. Before sculpting Yusuf or Ariadne, both on my to do list, I'll move to another character from another movie, let's see how it goes, stay tuned!.
