I think you might have got the last SG they had! Very Happy  Nothing but strats left on ebay for the moment. But I love that I have a brand name I can follow up on!!!

And are you gonna put the guitar on the hoodie capaldi?

Yea - it looks that way. But I'm sure they'll get more in stock - at least you know what to look for! And no - sticking with just my 'H3ll Bent' version of Capaldi - nothing is really close enough to the Yamaha to make me want to do a 'Bootstrap Paradox' Capaldi Smile


Well, I'm still waiting for my hoodies to arrive from across the deep blue sea, so there will probably be an SG that turns up eventually. Those things look so good I'm half tempted to find a black strat and try to customize it into a Yamaha. I also believe I was the very first person to EVER make such a statement in the history of the world!

Seriously though I'm just glad you found something this perfect, have shown that it works and looks great on the figure and then passed on the brand name and size info to the rest of us. That's 3/4 of the battle right there, thanks!

HA! I think that IS the first time I've ever heard something like that  Laughing

Credit where credit is due - it was j3h who first got this specific brand of miniature guitar. Seeing how perfectly in scale it was and the detail that it had prompted me to go on the hunt!

I have to give you props for the search info, I wouldn't have found them otherwise. Funny thing though, I did find an F-Toys cherry red SG on Ebay a few days ago, but before I could pm you the link, it was sold. I'm guessing you scored it!

That was probably me, since I did get one from eBay - thanks for thinking of me though!

Thank you j3h for in the intel!!

I've got wonder, what must the guy who is selling these toy guitars on ebay be thinking now? These mini SGs were probably just sitting there for sale for months, and suddenly there's a huge run on them!

Thanks guys, glad I was able to help/inspire. I didn't have the brand name, so I'm also glad Ben C tracked down what exactly it was. I wonder if a spike in sales caused that one seller to sky-rocket the prices into the $30+ range?

Did he really? that is crappy.

I kind of wish WhoNA could look into the possibility of selling these themselves. Market it as a good stand-in Capaldi guitar. As I recall, years ago, before an official Paul McGann figure seemed likely they were selling that "Oscar Wilde" figure everyone thought sort of looked like 8!

Well, the place where I bought mine is still fairly reasonable, and they restock quickly, ship quickly and give you a tracking number. It doesn't get much better then that! Very Happy

I got my two Series 9 12th Doctors (thanks Lior!) -- other than those rabbit feet, this is an amazing figure!  I immediately pulled down my "Steven Moffat" 12th Doctor figure and swapped feet, then gave the Series 9 version the guitar I've been passing around to my 12th Doctors since we got the regen figure.

And while we're talking about this figure - I thought of a way to easily blend the hair a bit so it's not so blackish with bright highlights. I was going to break out the paint a couple days ago and do a light wash, but it hit me to just use a little cornstarch and a small brush. Worked great (IMO) to give a less contrasty look and even brought out some hidden details.

Good news for those who missed out the first time around...we have more on the way.

Sorry for the delay in updating this, but there are logistic issues with the new figures we have to work around.

So, I got my lil red SG today, and it just looks amazing.
The detail is great for something this small ... totally wasn't expecting the strings to be so nice and perfect!

Big huge thanks to Blackarrow for helping me track one down!



P.S. -- if you have an older Capaldi figure you don't feel attached to, then I recommend doing the foot swap with the new hoodie ones. It REALLY makes a difference!

Thanks to j3h, Ben C. and digby for inspiring me to go off in search of the red SG, I'm very happy with how it complements this 12th Doctor figure!  Cool

Very nice! I'm digging the headswap on the older Capaldi figure.

Just an option to consider: You could try using the straps that are on 1/12 scale steamer trunks. I have a few Ebay listings bookmarked, they generally sell for less than $5 shipped. You can use or discard the buckles as you see fit, and use Super glue or Blu Tack to attach them. Check your PMs.  Cool

Captain Ironmac, check your PMs. Cool


And to digby and Ben C., thanks again guys! I was thinking about doing this head swap when digby first started this topic, and when Ben C. posted that pic with the guitar in the background, I was hooked! Very Happy
