oohh  glad i'm not the only one that has been given the task of trying to recreate a skylander!!  Hope someone is able to help you, I had a look and it looks really complicated lol .... maybe after shaping it out of gumpaste, you could paint it? Or use modelling chocolate.  

 

I'll be honest I wouldn't know where to start so I can't really help lol, I don't know where to start with Tree Rex that I've been asked to do ...... so any feedback I'd be interested in too :)
 

Good luck :)

Did you ever make it?  I'm in the same boat for this weekend.  Post a pic if you did it.  =->

AI did one but it wasn't great , really awful if I'm honest, I had his arms held up by pieces of dried spaghetti which everyone could see! It was for family luckily, I'd have been very embarrassed giving it to a paying customer! [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3089998/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

I think you're being hard on yourself.  It's good.  (Minus the spaghetti, right?  ;->)  Really though, the cake looks great.  The fondant work is nice and clean.  I'm totally winging mine.  It's midnight..the party is in the morning, and I haven't started my figure yet.  So good luck to me, right!  I hope mine turns out as good as yours did.  Thanks for posting a pic.  =->
