PostPosted: 0    Post subject: Tutorial On Customizing a G4

I found the G4's in a local Walmart last week and decided to grab an extra Pinkie Pie to turn into my Ponysona.

I figured I would post a tutorial on how to disassemble a G4 :).

Here she is and she has no idea what is about to happen to her.
First things first though.
Off%20with%20her%20head!%20The%20setup%20seems%20similar%20to%20the%20G3.5. I%20needed%20to%20get%20the%20thing%20holding%20the%20head%20on%20out%20of%20her%20body.%20I%20cut%20around%20the%20neck%20ring%20with%20an%20xacto%20knife.... and%20it%20popped%20right%20out%20when%20I%20pulled%20on%20it.%20I%20plan%20on%20super%20gluing%20it%20back%20into%20place%20once%20the%20custom%20is%20finished%20so%20that%20her%20head%20can%20move%20freely. I%20then%20took%20my%20hemostats%20and%20pulled%20the%20tail%20out.%20This%20was%20simple. I%20then%20proceeded%20to%20give%20her%20a%20mohawk%20in%20order%20to%20rip%20out%20all%20of%20her%20hair. I%20took%20my%20hemostats%20again%20and%20pulled%20all%20the%20hair%20out.%20The%20good%20news%20is%20it%20doesn't%20seem%20as%20though%20Hasbro%20loaded%20up%20on%20the%20glue%20with%20the%20G4's%20her%20hair%20was%20easy%20to%20pull%20out%20:D. Here%20she%20is%20all%20dissembled! I%20then%20took%20off%20her%20eyes%20and%20symbols%20to%20prep%20her%20for%20painting.%20The%20G4's%20DO%20have%20eye%20indents.


All in all this was a pretty quick process considering the hours spent sometimes with G3's and there heads full of glue D:

Oh wow, I look forward to seeing a G4 custom. Only the solid plastic ones got to my stores so I'm hoping to get a few of the hair'd ones when they come around

I can't wait to get my hands on one of these - the stores around here are still carrying the G3.5s. Sad

Thank you for posting! I'm glad they are easier to customize than I thought they would be. And I'm really happy they have eye indents X_X

Eeeevery time I go into a store I look at the toys. I want to maim one of these sooo bad. Especially the unicorns or pegasus... the wings look so cool.

Plus the mousey ears they have make me giggle.

So glad to hear that the heads aren't loaded up with glue! I still swear that if there is every a shortage of glue on this planet, Hasbro is to blame...

My persona would look cute as a G4, methinks... Since she's supposed to have tiger ears, and the ears on the G4s are definitely NOT pony ears. LOL!

If anyone is in need of some, my local Target has quite the stock of them already. I'll glady pick one up and ship it off to you.

A deer would be cute. They're not..pony like to me. More of a weird..alien, rat..thing. :/

Why can't they just stick with G1s? Or at least remake some of those. And WHY can't they make BOYS?!?!?!?

Anyway, great tutorial. Happy

I don't like how they look in general with those mouse ears, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you turn her into. Maybe they'll be worth customizing after all.
