Since the PVC ponies lack a Fluttershy (no, the recolored Rainbow Dash does not count), I took it upon myself to make one.

The figure was sculpted in Super Sculpey, cast in resin and then painted using acrylic paints.

Fluttershy is in scale to the PVC figures, but has a much more show-accurate design.

EDIT: Copies of this figure, both painted and unpainted (for those who´d like to paint/ modify it themselves), are available. Just contact me via email (manicworkbench@googlemail.com) if you are interested.

Every time I see a Fluttershy sculpture, it takes away a little bit of my heart.

Hasbro should have gotten you and the other sculptors here on dA to design the figures. Your Fluttershy is true to form and much livelier than the standard toys, even though she's not in an "action" pose, plus the shapes for her wings, mane and tail, etc. have much more character. I especially love the huge expressive eyes, and I appreciate that her legs and body don't just lie flat on the table.

Does "cast in resin" mean that you made a mold from the Super Sculpey and the figure itself is resin? Though I've seen a lot of good pony sculpting and 3D I don't know much about any of the processes.

Sure, it may be difficult to mass produce toys of this quality for a low enough price, but that just makes me think that Hasbro should try something like low fee per-unit licensing.

Yes, the figure is not the original sculpt, but one of the first resin copies I cast.

Oh my :star:! Using the Lego blocks gave me a wow moment for being so ingenious and simple to use (and scale). Once I'm not so tired and dizzy I'll have to go through it more thoroughly, but I truly appreciate you taking the time to share your process.

That's icing on the cake of your fantastic technique in making the original models, especially on such a tiny scale.
