Taki
Taki, from Soul Calibur 2.
About this creation
Taki comes from the game series known as Soul Calibur. The outfit is most like the one seen in Soul Calibur 2, athough I could show her face in the correct color until a recent part acquisition. Taki stands at about 13.5 inches tall, and has 28 points of articulation. 30, if you count the ...

   Finally got the pieces I needed for the face from this Lion, but I had to build him first. After that, I couldn't resist this. :)

   Taki is very posable, but balance is hard to achieve when not standing on two feet. This is one of the easier poses, although she did fall down a bit.



Enlarge image
   She adopts this pose in the game a few times.

   Front side.

   Right side.
And yes, she's probably one of the most popular characters in the game.

   Backside.

   Front close-up. You can see that I had to do turn the torso 180 degrees in the middle so that I could get all the features right.

   Sitting



Enlarge image
   In order for her torso to be able to twist and turn in somwhat normal directions, some .. parts .. had to be a bit more mobile. More on that later.



Enlarge image
   When the arms are down, the shoulders don't look like much - but the shoulder pad arrangement fits right in allowing her arms to go quite high without twisting - almost as much as a real human.



Enlarge image
   These swords are perhaps a bit too big for the character, but it's just about all I could find that would fit well enough.



Enlarge image
   Ok, so Taki is really posable. But I want to point out that she is really posable - when both feet are on the ground. THIS shot... was hell. I'm not kidding when I say it took about 15-20 minutes to get her balanced for this shot. Fortunately, once I got it right she did not fall down at all.



Enlarge image
   Seriously. This was not easy to do. :)



Enlarge image
   STOMP!



Enlarge image
   And now, "How'd they do that?!"
The trick is in two parts.



Enlarge image
   First, attached to the body is a magnet. Note also that there is actually ample space beneath the top half of the body and the bottom, allowing the torso to tilt right and left.



Enlarge image
   Inside each breast is another magnet, reversed to oppose the one on the body. Spring minifig legs (basketball) allow for the fluidity.

   Decided to have a little fun before I took apart DV. See the full series on Brickshelf. :)

I'm not familiar with the Soul Caliber series even though a Game Cube memory card I bought already had some memory of it. She looks extremely articulate. I think she has a couple grenades in her shirt. Most people would keep them on a belt or bandoleer. I guess that wasn't as funny as I thought. Yeah. Umm, de dum de dum. Hum.

Holy.... A Soul Calibur action figure made out of LEGO, complete with game-accurate spring-loaded... uh, bounce factor?! What won't they think of next? Not my favorite character, but good job anyways.
