Your Emma looks great!

I know it's a bit late, but I think the X-Men Retro White Storm figure has legs that are somewhat closer in size to the Hellfire Club Emma Frost, and also have flat feet. I prefer these to the skinnier Dagger legs, but Storm is maybe not as easy to find as Dagger. I believe they are also the same legs as the Retro Wasp figure, but that one has the slightly smaller feet compared to Storm / Dagger, and is not as easy to find either.

Thanks! Thank you all.

Storm actually may have been a great choice, I plan to pick her up to be my definitive Storm some day, so may try them out just for fun. Although I believe her legs are pearlescent.

I don't know if it'll fit Emma Frost body, but I think the ML Dagger has white legs and flat feet.
That it does! I'll look around for a cheap Dagger and try it out. Thanks!

I used the new Shriek's legs on the Hellfire Jean Grey and it worked perfectly. If push comes to shove I guess I can get a second Shriek and try painting them
My Shriek has not arrived yet, did you swap at the thigh cut? Is it a 100% fit or is dremeling involved? Any pics?

Yep thigh cut. No dremeling, just some hot water and a bout an hours work (it was my first try on something like this). They fit really well, will get pictures in the morning if you'd like.

Casting Cave is selling molding of the Walgreens Emma Frost hair so I decided to get it with the Retro Gambit hair. Here it is on the other Emma Frost head on the usual ML female body.

I wish I could give her a little more neck, but the dead skin color of the original is more distracting than a short neck.

Okay, there's a little bit of paint here, but it's not really necessary. Swapped out the parts I personally liked best from each of the Omega Red figures.

Can’t see the image myself, though I’m intrigued to - there’s bits from both I prefer too!
