Here's a couple of no-names I created awhile back to man the guns on my BBI Blackhawk. I never did get around to finishing the pilots to round out the entire helo crew. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
Here's a new version of Wetsuit, in combat diver gear. The strapping used to hold all of his gear to his belt is made from black artist's tape. Enjoy!
Here's Wetsuit with my previous version of the character. The new appears to be shorter in stature than the old, but that is due to the varying thickness of the display stands I used in the photo. Both figures are the same height when placed directly on a common surface.
A few months back, I had publicly stated here on this blog that I would never do another Iron Man figure. Well, here's another Iron Man figure. I just couldn't help myself. I bought the Hall of Armor set, totally excited to have a Tony Stark Figure and a fully articulated Mark 42 figure, only to be sorely disappointed by the horrific paint job the latter figure received. So here he is, a Mark 42 Marvel Universe 4 inch scale fully custom painted Iron Man figure. And no more Iron Man figures after this, and this time I really do mean it!
Two new Joes that I've done before, but this time in desert environment gear. I made these two to accompany my SEAL team.
My first actual scratch built diorama, starring my new Gi Joe Army Rangers team, was created from foam, plaster, wood and tid bits from the dollhouse aisle at hobby lobby.
This is how the project starts. A basic cut out of foam, glued together to form the structural foundation. I cut the base the same dimensions as the completed dio so when it is finished the two can be used adjacent to each other and look like one large structure.
The most difficult part of this project was actually procuring 3 Ultimate Duke figures as bases for this crew. But I'm glad I spent the time, because I'm super stoked on how they turned out. I really wanted a nice land based SEAL team to add to my Joe ranks, and these fit the bill perfectly. They'll go nice with the Killer Whale vehicle I'm working on right now too. The wall diorama behind the figs in the lower pics was created using Styrofoam and plaster. Enjoy!
Much like any 1:18 scale action figure customizer, I am compelled to do at least one Deadpool figure using the City Strike Snake Eyes body. Nothing fancy here, just a cast head and a bash of different Snake Eyes figs, and a paint job. I went with an "X" belt instead of the Deadpool mask belt, because originally he was supposed to have been an X-men draftee in my A vs. X figure project. I probably change that bit before I retire this figure. Enjoy
I was inspired to create this version of the Red Skull by Jin Saotome's wonderful version of the character. Well, really I just straight up copied him. But that's OK, as long is credit is given where credit is due, and he deserves major props on all of his amazing works. Anyway, this figure is bashed together using the Indiana Jones Colonel Vogel figure, Renegades Cobra Commander legs, lower arms and hands. He now sports (almost) full 30th Gi Joe style articulation. The baton is a short length of aluminum tubing with little gold bits of jewelry fodder on the top and bottom. Hope you enjoy!
