HELP! Looking for minis for Sky Captain league
« on: October 28, 2018, 09:15:21 PM »
So, my wife wants to run a Pulp Alley League as a Duo with Sky Captain and Polly Perkins.  I was going to Phantom Ace as Sky Captain, but I can't find a woman with a trenchcoat and fedora.  Any clues out there?

Would you find any of the wanted look in, for example:
- Artizan Miss Greentree
- Brigade Games Julia Coldberg
?

Greentree has potential - don't like the face on Coldberg.  I was considering Felicity Poppington and cutting off the beret to replace with a fedora.

Is Felicity Poppington still in production? I'm not seeing her on the current Pulp Alley list of figures.

I'd suggest taking a look at the new Betty Bixler figure from Pulp Alley. Although lacking the coat & fedora, she has that all important camera in hand:

Maybe Dave Phipps could be convinced to produce a sprue of hats, as he has produced a sprue of weapons.

Another vote for Pulp Alleys Betty Bixler. I think she is obviously inspired by Polly. In the Diamond Murders story, Betty works for the same newspaper, has the same Editor, and I think the figure is even holding the same camera as Polly.

I agree with the folks above--you can't go wrong with Betty Bixler for Polly. And she wouldn't make a bad Lauren Bacall or Agent Carter either.

Dave may not have Felicity in stock right now, but if you have to have her you can still get her direct from Statuesque:

EDIT: You can find Felicity Poppington on the Pulp Alley site, in the Specials! section:

But she doesn't have the hat!

(sigh) Full disclosure - my wife is a hat freak, and the first thing she said was "do you have a figure with a fedora?"

Hmm.  Green stuff, maybe?

Not like I need an excuse to buy figures from Dave.

There may be ways to make the fedora more easily. If you have a Pulp Figures character in a fedora that you don't want, just cut it off and use it on the Polly figure. There is also a Reaper pulp investigator figure in a fedora that is probably 3d printed plastic. It would be easy to cut the fedora off of that one. Might even be able to find the Reaper figure in a local store.

Or, if you have a Pulp Alley DA Denton or Jack Spade figure that's not painted yet, then maybe you could make a mold of the fedora. Then perhaps you could cast the fedora in metal or resin.

The fedoras from Pulp Figures, Copplestone, and Reaper don't look as good as the Pulp Alley DA Denton and Jack Spade.

Also, Sloppy Jalopy has a cheap head sprue that includes some in fedoras.

Just spotted one we seem to have forgotten, Agent Deering, from Gorgon miniatures:



Seems perfect! Fedora and all!

I have those two figures.
They are very nice.
