Play Arts Figure Mod: Riku by Rebmakash Play Arts Figure Mod: Riku by Rebmakash
No clue what category to put this under...

About a year ago, I wished the Play Arts figures had a Riku with them. Sora and Kairi are wonderful, don't get me wrong, but they're both best friends with Riku. Why split up a fun trio? So after the Sora Song was done and posted by :iconlynxgriffin: I started modifying a Cloud Strife. ...I don't think it looks much like him anymore. About a year later I finish him, thanks to lack of time and technical issues (broken joint, making hair, paint scratching off at joints...) and get the chance to post.

Sorry I haven't been too active. My efforts have been directed sadly to school and work only nowadays.

I thought it would be fun to do a box too, so that's where this comes from. Riku's sadly the only "real" figure on the box. I'd love for there to be a Kairi in that outfit or a Namine for my Roxas. Incidentally, the character names in Japanese are all probably correct, thanks to one of my books. Hopefully I drew the symbols correctly.

Media: Play Arts Cloud, "Kneadatite" Epoxy Putty, acrylic paint, Duco cement, brass wire, steel wire, brass sheet, milk jug plastic, Krylon clear acrylic spray.

Riku and other characters copyright Disney and Square Enix.

This is awesome!

I was really disappointed/pissed when I google image searched 'riku action figure' and this came up under amazon.com. Got my hopes way up for a split sec and thought they finally made a kh2 riku fig, went to the page and it was the KH1 fig instead.. LOL

Really awesome though, just wish he had been a real product. *sob*

Go to Japan, behold, a club-mate of my older sister at school (who has gone into Japan several times, she's 1/4 Japanese) said that there were Xion, OrgXIII Riku and other Kingdom Hearts figures everyone sought in toy stores, problem is, they're JAPAN-EXCLUSIVE. They're also not available for sale on the net. Because of this I'm waiting for our Japanese relative to ask what we want, and we might have the chance to have those figures we seek.

Anyway EPIC SAUCE ARTWORK *A* Looks so real!

i have the Riku from kingdom hearts one and kingdom hearts two sora and kairi, and im like TT _ TT this dosen't make any sense that riku is from the first game and kairi and sora from the second. I also have a roxas and a yuffie figure and since there isnt a xion figure either i made yuffie, xion.(even though she dresses nothing like her) Then Kairi's legs broke off TT_TT so now im buying a new one. Im also buying a secong kairi because you gave me insparation. Im going to make kairi into me. Hopefully i can post the pic after im done, if i remember.

Square enix doesn't come out with the characters they know we want because they only want to give us a little bit of what we want(like obviously sora). They want to leave a hole in our collection because it in turn leaves a hole in us(because we really love these figures), thus we continue to feel as if our collection is incomplete and we continue to follow them, always buying their figures, trying to complete our collection, but never really ever because they always make sure their missing something important that keeps us watching and hoping for it to show.

evidence:
they make sora and kairi from kh2 but no riku, Roxas and Axel but no namine, (the rest from kh2 are just to make money while we are hoping for those missing figures.

from the kh1 series, they make sora and riku, but no kairi. If my sora is lonely, a part of me will be lonely. lol. good thing i didn't buy the sora from this series.

dissidia trading arts vol 1&2; they come out with 10 figures, 9 are the heros out of the 10 featured in the first dissidia, but they replace one with a villian. To not mess up fans too much, they choose a villian that most people might accept, that being sephiroth. But deep down, Collectors like us who need peace of mind by finishing a collection, we are again left with a hole in our hearts.

for you to spend a year on this figure, there must of been a deep hole in your heart for you you to put so much dedication to fill it. I'm glad you didn't by spending more money on figures but rather on making a dream figure come to life. Just to see this figure, gives me a peace of mind when i think about my figures. Gives me ideas and inspiration to find better ways of completing my own collection.

Hey, I thought you'd like to know that Amazon is using your pictures here:
[link]
To sell the original Riku figure, which doesn't make much sense to me. I suggest you check it out. I tried to right a review telling people about it, but I had to buy it before I could review it. So, yeah. Thought you'd want to know.

hello! Did you use an Advent Children play arts Cloud? In that case, please, would you tell me where did you take his left arm and how did you put him on? Thank you very much =) Im very interested in your work.
By the way it´s really nice, pretty good idea and a profesional look

I did. I used a dremel to sand down that arm, though I had to essentially make a little washer to put over the joint so it wouldn't slide off, since the joint was so sanded down the... "Cap" was gone. hard to describe.

After I used epoxy to build his arm back up again.

Only Riku. I'm working on a Kairi, though, very slowly. I can't figure out how to modify Kairi to make a proper Namine, though, and still be able to pivot at the waist.
