Two Bit Pulp Hero
« on: May 19, 2008, 08:07:36 AM »
Just wanted to show off my weekend project.  I picked up this figure for $0.25 at the local game shop swaped his head, removed his chest symbol, and painted him up all in about 4 hours time. 



He may not be the most beautiful figure but he'll make a nice tabletop figure.  I've got a little more about him in my blog.

Kinda looks like the Rocketeer without his helmet and jet pack.  Looks like the Crab Johnson from the Hellboy Heroclix set.

Good stuff,

That is the Lobster Johnson fig.  I also thought he looked a bit like the Rocketeer.

Cool looking mini. I guess I'm too fixed on metal.

Then again if there were even more minis available, I'd have to starve...

Great job! He's got a real "OK no more Mr nice guy" look to him.

Excellent conversion. There's a lot of stuff in the different collectable minis ranges that useful. :D 8)

Nice job, very effective as a pulp hero. I agree about the rocketeer look :)

I love that fig. I've used the same mini as a basis for a few conversions. Nicely done.

Hey.  I've got a couple of these figs.  I'm gonna dig 'em out forthwith.  Thanks for the idea which I will shamelessly steal.

you did much better than I on that conversion.  Here's the fella I did.

I don't know. I think the head you chose is quite a bit more pulpy than mine.  What head is that?  I think I'd like to use it for my other body if I can find it.  Nice job!
