Regarding Hunter

I don't know how many of you know, that I've had troubles with Hunter.
Ever since I received him it didn't felt right. I promised to give him a chance, and it's been three months now. It still doesn't feel like Hunter to me. 

I'm not sure what's wrong. The head sculpt of SID Eric is so lovely, but it looks a bit young and not quite mean enough. Hunter is not a friendly guy. 
The body is a problem too. 
1. It feels too buff for him. 
2. I can't find decent clothing anywhere. 

So I've put him up for sale.

My new plans are this:
Maria helped me look for sculpts for a new Hunter, and she showed me LLT Roderich. After looking at some owner pictures, I was sure. I need him for Hunter!
Then came the search for a perfect body. It was no easy task. Originally I wanted a somewhat buff (but less buff than Iple) body around 64cm, but all I found wasn't going to match LLT. It was then Maria mentioned she has an April Story boy body, she's going to put up for sale and offered to sell it to me. 

So now I just need to sell SID Eric to fund these plans. Haha.

  1. I feel ya there, I also decided to put up for sale my Onyx. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you love a sculpt, it just doesn't work.
    Good luck with the sale! Hope you egt your new Hunter soon :D

    1. Yeah, for me it's just a "gut feeling". I just know it won't work, but at least I gave it a chance. :)
      Thanks! And good luck to you too. :D

  2. At least you gave him a chance, but that's life :3 At least you've found an alternative, that might work better!
    Good luck in selling the 'old doll', can't wait to see how the new Hunter turns out when you get him! Such a pretty face, but definitely .. .'meaner' looking than Eric!

    1. Thanks! I do hope this sculpt will work better, but some characters are just so hard to shell as dolls! .w.

  5. It's too bad that he doesn't work for your character but you gave him the chance! I hope he sells quickly so you can get the new doll instead :D

  6. Just glad you were able to find a decent replacement so soon, and I really hope you manage to sell/trade him soon. :) It's so frustrating when a doll doesn't look like the character they're supposed to be.

    1. Thanks! I hope the new year will be a year, where I won't have to re-shell a lot of dolls. It's always so stressing :P
