Here's Fluttershy! I had thought she'd be an easy project, but she actually turned out to quite tough.

Rerooting her was easy. I'm coming to terms with the fact that the hardest part about customizing the G4 ponies is dealing with the neckpost. I don't know how visible it is from the photo, but she has a little white mark in her neck from when I accidently dinged her with the hobby knife. Even though I only had to cut through the back of her neck in the end to be able to re-tail her, I still had a tough time getting her head back on without jamming the post back into the neck. The pegasus head-opening is smaller than that of the ponies for some reason. Their heads are harder to remove, and much harder to get back on. So in the end I had to use an Exacto knife to shave away at and widen her head-hole so I could reunite her head with her body without putting the loosened post under too much pressure. That worked out much better. I wish I had done that with Rainbow Dash...

I think her forelock curl is a bit too long, and she ought to have more volume at the roots. I still think she looks better than she did in box, though...

I honestly don't care for Fluttershy that much. I'm shy, too, but she just seems like a fetish character to me, LOL...
