Let's Share Stories 1 - Body Swapping

Most figmas have the ability to remove their body parts by pegs instead of ball joints. This leaves room for body swapping. One of my favorite body swaps is user bakanki's figmas Aragaki Ayase and Kamen Rider Siren, trading Ayase's forearms and forelegs for Siren's to give her a more battle-oriented look. Some others take Siren's head and put in another female figma's on top.

Then there are Nendoroids, whose arms, legs, and faces can swap around with other Nendoroids to create an array of emotions and movements, such as Nendoroid's Elsea de Lute Irma's swinging arms and running motion and Kousaka Kirino's super happy face. It seems Good Smile allows a good amount of customization with their figures like a Gundam model kit would (please don't kill me, gunpla enthusiasts! ; A; )

I've only fiddled with body swapping once or twice, mainly with figmas Drossel, Mato, and Black Rock Shooter. But I've seen people mess around with their figures, and I love some of the matchings that occur.

Personally, my favorite usually involves Drossel, like Drossel's body with Yuki Nagato's head, or even Mato Kuroi's head.

So you guys obviously have more experience in the figma/Nendoroid field than I do. What are your favorite body swaps?

    I usually only body swap my figmas, but sometimes I body swap nendoroids as well.
    My favorite figma combo is Tsumugi's head and battles waitress Mikuru's body.
    My favorite nendoroid combo is switching the heads and bodies of BRS and Azusa~ ^.^

    The best thing about Figmas, Revoltechs, and HG Gunpla is that their pegs are all the same size, allowing for limitless possibilities. I'll just leave this here. PICTURE #318077

    I have only two figmas - Tsukasa Hiiragi and Izumi Shizuno, and about two weeks ago I decided to swap their heads. Here's the result:

    I seriously enjoy swapping any of my figmas/nendos heads onto the bodies of my puella magi girls. It's the best.

    Skippyandjif (5 years ago) #1009269Well, this isn't quite figma-related... But SAS figures have interchangeable hands. My favorite thing to do is take Part 3 Joseph Joestar's "Hermit Purple" hands-- they have purple vines attached to them-- and put them on other figures so that they can tentacle-molest yet -other- figures. Teamed up with Revoltech Woody, this leads to so much hilarity. (Sadly, I don't have Joseph in my own collection...my friend has him and we're in different states for the time being.)

    As for figmas specifically, the most I've done is swap weapons. Or rather, give White Rock Shooter everyone else's weapons and pose my other figmas running away from the ensuing terror. XD


    ...My my my, I like your style...
