Talking geriatric villains... here's a couple of villains from an old TV show I'm thinking of trying converting stand ins for (yes I'm hijacking my own thread now, but Trump reminded me, I'm running out of WW2 era villain ideas and this guy looks old enough, although he would have been younger then, and she wouldn't have been born....Ahh, minor details! I intend on doing more Aussie characters after my Pommy ones anyway.)
Infinity have a model that looks a bit like the girl but for the head (or maybe a wasp Nano Metalfig will come out and look something like that and not be as fiddly as an infinity figure) But the helmet has me stumped, it looks sort of Judge Dreddy so I thought I might as well ask here.
Professor X conversion for the old guy I'm thinking.
I'll have to do the show's heroes too eventually.
I'm also thinking of doing a Japanese mad scientist from the Institute for Cetacean research (or frogman?) with a controller controlling a harpooned whale man based on this Japanese mascot for whale eating douchebagery:https://www.smh.com.au/national/eating- ... nyqc0.html
(Heroclix have a great looking Namor and Giganto so my Axis will get a shoddy Japanese knock off to fight my heroes, with authentic shoddiness thanks to my lack of skill
) runny blood pool rising sun where a harpoon struck and the mascot has it's hero emblem on its chest, undead or suffering looking, you know me, subtle.
I don't know If I should go cartoony or not, the mascot is cartoony and I could try and find a Skylanders Thumpback to convert, it has a good pose but there are good whale men figures out there...Or convert some larger toys?
I'd have to cape him (a tarp or the sail from a protest ship with ropes hanging down?) and add a spout of water from the head like the Mascot (but bloody?), and cover him in harpoons trailing ropes (with handlers holding all the ropes from these and the "cape"?) and wounds (Being crawled over and cut into/up for food and stabbed to prod forward, a sashimi food cart alongside... too much???), maybe swap out the Thumpback anchor for a harpoon as hand weapon, and/or harpoon gun? (or manned harpoon gun on back maybe?). So he can also act as a paper thin excuse for a unit of Japanese with naginata to fight superheroes and in WWW2 games.
