The Trolls

"Flowers for a flower..."

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.."

"Where is that kid? Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidddddddd ddddddddddd!"


"Is someone calling me?"

(http://www.playkingdoms.com/temp/playmoproc/trolls003.jpg)

"Darn, time to go home."

"None of that. Behave in front of your mother."

"Yes Father."

We had plans to make one of the trolls different since we got them. The plan was to put an earring and maybe paint or somehow modify the armor a bit. Then we saw tonguello's AMAZING custom: LINK (http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=14374.0)

So, plans changed. We agreed on non-lipstick or painted nails. And I knew the hair and long skirt were over me and (possible) the milliput...  I tried to do her eyes like Ogrella's..

So, first I did her... and then the "kid"... We both like them, so.... :love:

I love this family! :love: :lol:
The kid outfiit is super cool! He even looks shorter ... did you do something to the legs or is it an optical effect for the fur he is wearing?  :o
Or is it just my tired eyes?  :lol:

It's your tired eyes ;)  I didn't do anything to the legs...

I tried to copy your Ogrella's eyes, but as you can see, didn't do too well.. And this was my fourth or fifth try  :-[   (also tried the eyebrows, but while yours look.... well... female, mine just looked angrier... )

I think she looks great, anyway!
I don't know how you did it but my "secret"  ;) is that I used a super fine permanent marker for better control, not a brush. A black Edding 404.
For the lips I used a brush but maybe a red marker could work too, I couldn't find a red one.  :)

Great looking troll family. At first I thought " when did geobra release 3 different trolls"  then realized you made them. I think you did a fantastic job.

This is awesome! What did you use to make "Kid"? (I want to buy a pack of trolls, but they NEED VARIETY, and I need to find a way to customize them.)

They were all done with milliput, different kinds..

That is why I did them - variety, I mean. Still waiting for the purple one - but he has THE SAME armor. Gah.

I don't know how I missed all this before - Mr Raven was talking admiringly about the trolls last night, and I didn't know what he was referring to, so I came to look.

And they are so brilliant!  Wonderful trolls!  I love them.

I missed this too until now. I completely love all of them!!  :love:  :love:  :love:
They look a lot less like Fisher Price toys in their new outfits. Lovely design and excellent execution!
Gorgeous  :)

Great looking Trolls! Have yet to do any customizing but intend to do so here soon. When you use milliput, do you have to "score" the surface or do you just stick it on and let dry? Thanks for any info on this.

Most times I don't do anything to the surface - in their case, only the "skirt" thing, cause I wanted to remove most of it.

Old thread, I know, but worth watching.

I have a question about customising trolls. Can one remove and refit the neck piece of the classic troll (6004) without permanent damage? If so, how does one go about?

I'm asking because I'm quite keen on the battle troll with backpack (9343), but do not want to get another troll figure. So I thought, spare parts ...  <:>

Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Best wishes
StJohn

These first ones I carefully sawed through the neckpiece - it is usable, but split in front.

The next ones (with help) were popped. Pull the head off. I hope I will be able to put them back on...  :-[

This way the neckpieces are intact.

I love those "backpacks" too" - I intend to get more trolls, in numbers to customize too..

Thanks Tahra! I'll try popping but will never saw. I fear, there is going to be another troll around ...  :-\
