Greetings, new to the forums, but they came highly recommended.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a base figure to make Solaire from Dark Souls from? I mainly just need a body type that fits as I can make the armor, weapons, etc. Any help with this would be most appreciated.

Thanks and looking forward to sharing and suggesting customs in the future. :D

Welcome to the site.....

Few questions:

- what size are you trying to use, SHS (2inches), Playskool Heroes (2 1/2inches) or ImagiNext (3inches) figures.....these are the sizes we use here

- only BODY.....don't need arms/legs or head

Oh I didn't realize those were the only sizes used. I was hoping for something in the 6 to 8 inch range as that's mostly what I collect.

And yes, mainly just need a body type that fits, the larger and huskier type build he has. Arms, legs, head, etc. I can swap/create on my own.

I'd suggest one of the Mythic Legions figures from the Four Horsemen. They aren't available to order at the moment but they should be up for pre-order very soon as the Horsemen are awaiting the container from China with the shipment. You can look over the choices you would have at their store, I know a very close match to the image you posted by mixing a couple of the figures together (they're a bit modular, the heads and armor can be swapped around)...

...or you could wait a bit (probably late summer) when they start offering pre-orders on that last batch they did a pre-sale on and get Sir Godfrey who would be a very close match to what you're looking to complete...

And welcome to the boards! The Imaginext customs are the most active here we have do have customizers in all scales lurking about. Looking forward to seeing your finished piece.

If you're looking for a good "blank" figure to work with in then 6-8 inch scale I'd suggest a marvel legends Silver Surfer. You can't get any plainer then that. Plus good articulation, lots of available accessories in that scale and, because there have been several versions made, you can still pick one up on ebay for less than $30.

Might try a Dr. Doom figure if you can find one. That is what I used for my Nathan Garrett Black Knight.
