Cid Higwind custom photoset a by SomaKun Cid Higwind custom photoset a by SomaKun
Height: 12"

Where to start... Well the face and hair was free-sculpted with Apoxie and Super Sculpey. This was my first time working with Super Sculpey. I used the boiling method to cook the clay. The goggle lens were pieces of plastic that i cut from the plastic packaging that comes with the toys. Everything was hand painted. There were no swivel points in the forearms so I had to make my own. I had to sculpt most of the left leg since I took off the sidearms. The coat came from a random 12" figure in my fodder box, I just had to dye it brown. The spear was made from some plastic thing I had laying around. I had to cut it up and piece it together.

A lot of the Final Fantasy characters are getting their own toy but I (and many others) wondered why Cid hasn't had a figure yet. Throughout the Final Fantasy games, there's always been a character named Cid. They would have at least designed one figure after one of the Cids. I chose Cid from Final Fantasy 7 Advent children because not only was that my fav Final Fantasy game, Cid was a fun character. His cocky attitude mixed in with his knowledge and love for machinery made him a likable and memorable character. So with all that said, I hope you like my tribute to Cid Highwind. Without him, it would be hell traveling on foot throughout Gaia (The fictional world of Final Fantasy 7 to those of you not familiar with the game) Thanks for looking ^_^
