The method for creating action figures that is described here assumes that the base body upon which you will build your creation is readily available and also that you will need to make only a few modifications to the base body. Use an action figure base body that is close in shape design and color to your desired creation but you can make it easy on yourself if you craft your design around the types of action figures that are readily available. There are many soldiers superheroes knights and other generic action figure toys that would serve as suitable base bodies. You may wish to stay away from base bodies that have many attached pieces and accessories that will need to be removed requiring a lot of time and effort to pry off or sand down.
After washing prepare the base body removing unwanted accessories and features with pliers wire cutters an X-acto knife and a Dremel power tool with attachments as appropriate. You may need to soften areas of the body to ease this step. Run hot water over the body for 30 to 60 seconds to help make it softer and more pliable. You may repeat the hot water treatment as often as needed while you modify the base body. A nail buffer or very fine sand paper can be used to smooth and finish the body.
