- Face-up artist(s):
- Date of acquisition:
- Direct purchase from Soom
- Reason for choice:
- I'd wanted a gray skin doll forever (full sized anyway) and I really liked the Crow headmold, so I was sold.
- Best Points:
- I love his face, his resin tone. The magnetic hands are nice.
- Worst Points:
- Dear glorb Soom, the engineering on this body is the absolute worst. They sculpted the butt cap too far out, so his legs never lock when he's standing. If you try to do it, his knees bend, which gives him no stability at all so he can collapse easily. Then, you take the elbow joint - so there's the middle resin part to give the arm mobility, only the upper portion is basically this huge long plug that can only sit in the position it's positioned in, which gives the arm zero range of mobility and defeats the entire purpose of having it there in the first place (really, they could have just made it a solid part because it's basically all it works as).
Then, then, so instead of an S-hook, they thought it was a good idea to put this weird resin doughnut in, which would be fine and all if resin didn't tend to age badly and become fragile, depending on the cast, and the well in which it sits is this semi-faceplate deal so it slips, a lot (I've lost his elastics in him a few times and have had to restring him multiple times over this). I ended up replacing it with an S-hook because I was worried the doughnut would snap and in doing so, it alleviated some of that slippage, but of all the Soom bodies I've owned/still own, this particular one is the worst. I'd love to sand the butt caps down so he can do more than sit propped up against a surface with his knees bent, but he's gray skin so it'll mess with his resin. For as much as I love the look of his bod, he's def been on my 'need to hop on an MD event' list so I can change out his body for one of their newer, better made ones because dirty pool, Soom, dirty, dirty pool :/
