I've been in the works for months, building little details and making the paintings, but finally finished my Colossus the painter photoshoot.

When I started working on my custom X-Men figures, the intention was always to steer away from the costumes.  And while there are often a few nods to their iconic colors, I mostly wanted to go with the casual clothes I'd imagine them wearing.  So when I started Colossus, some paint stained overalls seemed the obvious choice.  Custom brushes, paint tubes, easel and paint covered palette seemed like they'd be great accessories, and fun to make.  As the idea for some photos of him painted started forming, I made a pile of scattered sketches, and a few painting, finished and unfinished, printed and transferred to real canvasses. Psylocke seemed the ideal model.

Hopefully nothing too risque for anyone here.

Product Review Artoys Hellman - Wed Apr 04, 2018 6:22 pm

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart010

I am a little late to this party. I've always liked Hellboy, but missed my chance at getting earlier, licensed figures from that franchise. Now a non-licensed figure called Hellman (a name that I think he would prefer!) has been produced by Artoys, and I picked one up on eBay. It took a good three weeks to get here from China, but arrived safely yesterday, despite the rather disturbing condition of the outer package. The product bears many similarities to what I have seen from Hot Toys' second Hellboy figure, but also some differences that will be highlighted below. I am adopting a Michael Crawford-style format for this review, although I am treating outfit and accessories as a single category.

Packaging: 4/4

Hellman comes in a sturdy shoebox-type package. Artistic depictions of the character populate sides of the surface, filtered and posterized to different degrees. One surface of the lid features Hellman's trademark exclamation, "Oh, crap!" and two other surfaces bear the BPRD (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense) acronym. Similarly, once the lid is removed, the sides of the box showcase Hellman/Hellboy's other designations: his real name, Anung un Rama, and his loving nickname, "Red." Nothing too spectacular, but very well done. The same can be said for the foam packaging inside the box -- I would take this over nestled plastic trays any day, and appreciate it with this and any boxed figure. Below a thin lid of black foam lies a black foam tray containing the figure, three additional head sculpts, and a few accessories. Below this foam tray lies a second one, containing the remaining items. Again, nothing mind-blowing, but perfectly safe and collector-friendly.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart011

Sculpting: 4/4

While I am no Hellboy expert, the sculpting on the figure looks excellent. All four head sculpts are beautifully sculpted, with great attention to detail. The soft rubber body also exhibits plenty of fine texturing, cuts and bruises (in a way more apparent than in the actual film), and features the carved "tattoos"/scars on the upper torso and right arm. Perhaps the execution is not quite as fine as Hot Toys', but I don't think it leaves much to be desired.  The hair is pretty finely carved, though not as finely as we have seen in some of the highest-end products in recent years. The cut-off horns seem to protrude a little too far out of the forehead compared to what we see on the screen, but this does not really detract from the overall look. Other sculpted elements are very finely done, including the heavy right hand and arm, the belt buckle, the crucifix, the guns and shells.

Three of the head sculpts portray Ron Perlman's depiction of Hellboy from the films. Two of these have the cut-off horns with different facial expressions, while the third has the head sporting two complete and uncut horns. The fourth head sculpt (with cut-off horns) has a more snarling and caricature-type appearance, being based on the comics instead. This was supposed to be a preorder special, although it might actually be present in all boxed sets.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart014

Paint: 3/4

While the paint work is very good, it is not quite perfect. Overall the red color used is a bit duller than what we see on screen, and especially so on the rubbery body. The head sculpts and especially the hands have a slightly more intense color. That's right, the colors do not match perfectly, although the difference is not too bad in hand. Displaying the figure in the coat or coat and t-shirt largely precludes the slight differences from being noticed, but they are there. Generally speaking, the overall duller color goes in the opposite extreme from the old Hot Toys version: where Hot Toys' Hellboy was a bit too orange, this one is perhaps a little too red. In terms of application, the paint is generally very cleanly applied, except perhaps in the teeth (most notably on the full-horned head sculpt). This can be a good thing to a point, as the guns (for example), could have benefited from some weathering.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart013

Articulation: 2/4

This is where the figure falls palpably short of what one might hope. The wrists, ankles, and knees have good articulation, and the figure can stand well even without the included stand. So does the neck, especially at the base of the skull. The tail is articulated by way of an internal wire, and works quite well, except that in some cases its hollow rubbery shell can crease in strange ways -- sometimes futzing with it helps, sometimes it does not. However, there is little or no ab crunch or waist rotation, and the legs cannot reach a seating position at the thigh. Although the rubbery outer shell is quite soft, it precludes the underlying skeleton from keeping most medium to extreme poses with the arms and shoulders; and when you can bend something well enough -- for example the elbows -- the hollow rubbery shell often assumes unsightly and unnatural shapes. There are partly or more fully seamless bodies (especially TBLeague's) that would have performed much better.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart017

Accessories and Outfit: 4/4

This is a very well-equipped figure. It comes with the four head sculpts (Hot Toys provided only three -- lacking the comic book one) and a total of four hands (relaxed and fist heavy right hand, spread out left hand, gloved trigger grip left hand); admittedly that is not much in the way of hands (Hot Toys did not provide any more for Hellboy II), but it is where it comes to outfit and real accessories that the set shines.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart015

Apart from the action figure stand, which comes with an optional surface sticker, the accessories include a rosary with a crucifix, two guns, and a cigar. The smaller of the two, the "Samaritan," can be opened to display the shells in the chamber, although they do not seem to be removable; there is a coiled strap hanging from the handle of the gun. The lager gun, "Big Baby," can also be opened, and six large shells can be inserted (at least theoretically -- it is a very tight fit) into its hollow chamber openings. The handle is sculpted and painted to resemble wood, with a painted on inscription and image of... "big baby." You attach the supplied shoulder strap to the gun. Then there is the cigar, which can fit into a couple of the hand sculpts, but unfortunately not in any of the head sculpts.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart018

The outfit choices are also very good. They include beautifully detailed real leather boots, fine black real leather pants, a ripped black t-shirt, the beige overcoat with shortened right sleeve, and a complex belt with buckle and straps. You attach a holster for the "Samaritan" gun to the belt (its additional straps go around the right leg), and there are six pouches (in three different sizes) that can also go on the belt. The rosary with the crucifix can also be attached to hang from the belt, using its own little strap.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart012

All this looks great, although it can be a bit of a hassle. Putting the t-shirt and even the coat on the rubbery body can be a little frustrating, though not nearly as difficult as I expected. Putting the holster and pouches on the belt was not too bad, but trying to buckle it properly was beyond my abilities or at least patience. I really do not appreciate this aspect of functional sixth-scale buckles. The pants reach a little too high up, and it is somewhat difficult to make them ride down and stay that way, but I am not about to attempt any actual alterations.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart112

The ripped black t-shirt is movie accurate, the tears corresponding exactly to the ones suffered by Hellboy after his encounter with the tooth fairies in Hellboy II. The coat is also very impressive, especially as its collar can lay flat on the shoulders, unlike so many others in this scale. Other impressive features of the coat include the buckles on the collar and the right sleeve; thankfully, these last were already done in the box, and did not require me testing my limited skills at buckling things in this scale. The pants and coat make suitable accommodation for the tail.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart111

How does this compare to Hot Toys' Hellboy II? The latter included separate removable shells for the "Samaritan" gun and a second little rosary for the left wrist, neither of which is included here -- this second rosary is missing altogether, while these shells (unlike those that come for "Big Baby") appear to be sculpted and painted in the chamber. On the other hand, we get things that were not included with Hot Toys' Hellboy II -- the cigar, the black t-shirt, and the fourth (comic-style) head sculpt. This is not a bad trade off, although of course I would have preferred the best of both worlds.

Fun Factor: 3/4

While the problematic articulation limits the fun potential of this product to some extent, overall it looks great and allows for plenty of good poses and a variety of different looks. To be honest, I am rating this category just a little too low, as I may have rated the previous one just a little too high.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart016

Value: 2.5/4

This is difficult to evaluate. When the set first appeared, it was retailing for as low as around $170; then the price reached around $250; now the price often exceeds $300. This in the space of two months or so, and for an unlicensed figure. It really depends on where you buy, but also when you buy. At $170, this product is a steal; at over $300, it approaches daylight robbery, although it does have four head sculpts. It offers a lot, although it suffers from some flaws and limitations, most notably when it comes to articulation. And it is not as if you can put everything on a different body -- it would take serious customization and skill to create an equally detailed and accurate but better articulated body.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Hmart110

Overall: 3/4

I am divided on this figure. The look is excellent overall, despite some minor problems (paint mismatch, pants riding too high) and offers plenty of outfit and accessory choices, while still missing some. My one significant disappointment is the articulation, while the choice of finely-crafted head sculpts is a big plus. The price plays a role too, but is a big variable, depending on what sort of deal you manage to find.

Where to buy? It is already sold out at several retailers. Cotswold Collectibles still has it for $300 here: https://www.gijoeelite.com/Hellman-Figure. Or you can always look on eBay.

A few pics of my 1/6 Wolverine Weapon X helmet with led lighting. Thought I’d be farther along on the rest of the figure this past weekend, but was excited how this came out and wanted to share.

UPDATED 04/08/2018

So, I thought this would be a quick easy project.  Make a quick Weapon X  helmet, a couple mechanical bits, a few wires, throw them on a naked Wolverine.  Get a few cool photos.  Done and done.  

These things never work out that way though.  Ended up going deep into every piece, getting pretty elaborate on the leather straps, and adding an LED to the helmet.  Just finished up today, and I'm thrilled with the results.  

I want to do a big photoshoot, elaborate background, maybe a bit of action, and definitely plan to get some pics next time it snows.  But I was so excited to have finished today, I couldn't resist getting some photos.

A quick note, but I didn't have any kind of background that would work, so I threw together a faux concrete wall in under an hour.  Textured it up with a big rock I found under my porch, painted it concrete grey, then a big wash of grimey black.  Kept blasting it with the hairdryer so I didn't have to slow down, and could get these pics while there was still some sun.  Really happy with how it came out, and it's a great start on a versatile military base/lab kinda diorama background I have planned.  Such a productive day!

Terminator 2 figures and gear - Mon Apr 02, 2018 6:36 am

This is a sort of revisiting or retake of my first OSW post, with better lighting and photos, and more accessories, namely the new Connor/Resistance Leader by CGL. Oh, and more dust, I think, which is either good or bad... Smile

Hope you like it.

Most of us who enjoyed Rogue One found Krennic to be an interesting enough antagonist, especially considering that he was disposable, unlike Tarkin and Vader, who had to survive the film. If that translates to hoping for a sixth-scale figure of him, I suspect I am not alone in being disappointed that neither of the high-end companies (Sideshow and Hot Toys) that produce Star Wars figures in this scale seems to have any intention of making a Krennic figure. That void is partly filled by Disney's elite series Director Orson Krennic premium action figure.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni10

I am not very familiar with this line, although I have their very diminutive Leia. While there has been concern over the scale of Disney's figures, that does not seem to be an issue in Krennic's case. The Krennic premium action figure stands about 11.75" (almost 30 cm), which is about right for actor Ben Mendelsohn's real-lige 5'11" height translated into sixth scale.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni11

The figure comes in a clear-plastic and cardboard box. It is secured to the inner cardboard shell with a single twisty tie and is overall fairly collector-friendly.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni12

The head sculpt and paint are quite good, considering. Yes, the skin tone is consistent, the eyes feature the dreaded doll dot, and the hair is a tad too brown (though greyish brown). Despite some sculpting and texturing, the skin is a bit too smooth for Krennic's characteristic weathered look. In fact, I am reminded of an Are You Being Served episode, where it was pointed out that the mannequin based on Mrs Slocombe looked younger, because the store owner refused to shell out the extra money to sculpt all the wrinkles. That said, this figure retails for 10 times less than it would have, had it been produced by Sideshow or Hot Toys. For that very reasonable price, you get a very recognizable likeness of Ben Mendelsohn as Krennic, and that in itself is quite impressive. The quality of the sculpt and paint of other sculpted elements (badge, belt, gloves, boots, holster, grenades (?), gun) are also not Hot Toys quality, but still pretty good, especially if you want a slightly worn/weathered look.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni14

The figure comes wearing Krennic's characteristic uniform from the film: white officer's tunic with rank badge and cylinders, black officer's trousers, black gloves, belt, and boots, as well as a billowing white cape. Everything except the tunic, pants, and cape is made of molded plastic.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni23

This is all quite screen-accurate. That said, one might say the pants flare out just a little too much, and the cut of the cape is not quite right at the shoulders, which is probably my least favorite thing about this product.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni24

It is sometimes difficult to keep the voluminous cape under control in a reasonably realistic manner. Part of the problem may be the choice of a relatively thick denim-like material for the cape. I suppose if you wanted to customize you could easily remove it and replace it with something of your choice.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni13

The molded plastic parts of the outfit are quite functional. The belt, for example, can be unbuckled and removed; the holster holds the gun very well; the gloved hands come in two parts (hand and cuff) allowing for improved articulation; the boots are also made of two pieces (shoe and lower leg, with the shoe part given toe articulation to boot -- all puns intended). Although getting the right look requires some futzing, this is all pretty well done and allows good articulation.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni19

Speaking of articulation, there is plenty of it: double jointed knees and elbows, decent ab crunch , ankles, and thighs. The figure can take reasonably natural poses and stand well on its own (there is no base provided anyway). One minor disappointment is the single-piece head and neck, precluding articulation at the base of the skull; moreover, the head and neck are sculpted in such a way, that Krennic seems to be looking slightly up most of the time; trying to position the head so that he would look down can result in popping it off at the base of the neck.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni20

The figure comes with the following accessories (counting what is not permanently part of the outfit). A spare pair of gloved hands (relaxed hands, to supplement the trigger hands that come on the figure), a weathered gun, three grenades (?) that can fit onto the right side of the belt (one of them comes installed in place); the belt itself is easily removable (although I do not see why one would want to do that unless placing the outfit on a different body). Both pairs of gloved hands have their own separate molded plastic cuffs; since I don't expect them to be sculpted differently, I thought that to be a bit curious.

Topics tagged under film on OneSixthFigures - Page 2 Krenni25

Here are some shots of Disney's Krennic alongside a few Hot Toys characters from Rogue One and A New Hope. Remember that Death Troopers are unusually tall.

This Krennic figure was a Disney Store exclusive, but is available in plenty of other places. It retails for around $20 USD (and often a little below that), which is what makes it an even more attractive and impressive product. That is, as pointed out above, ten times less than what it would cost if it were produced by a high-end company; it is also as much as (or less than) the all-plastic 6 inch Black Series Krennic by Hasbro, which is far inferior in every way. If you do want to pick one up, there are plenty of options on amazon and eBay.

Overall, and especially considering the price, this seems like a very nice product. Customizers may improve on it with a repaint, or kitbashing security-bureau officers who wore a very similar outfit (except that their white was a bit more cream-colored).

Since a new forum needs new contents, here is a quick little review of a figure I obtained recently. It is DML's MIB3 (Men in Black 3 -- both appear as labels on the box) Agent K from 1969. In the film, Josh Brolin played the role of a much younger Tommy Lee Jones. If we can rely on the time stamp found on the sole of one shoe, the figure dates to 2012.

The figure comes in a basic sturdy shoebox-type container. The design of the box is intended to remind you of the film's titling, without any specific depiction of the character. Inside is a transparent plastic tray (with a transparent plastic lid) holding the figure and its handful of accessories.

The figure comes with a one-piece head and neck sculpt of Josh Brolin. It is executed pretty well, but in what seems to be a more impressionistic fashion than what we are used to from other companies. This is a difference in style, but it might also be somewhat tailored for the rugged features of Josh Brolin. The sculpt and paint give the impression of a sweaty pale individual with hair that is beginning to go grey. The work definitely lacks the sharpness of HT and DAM products in either sculpt of paint, but still succeeds in conveying the overall impression. That said, the paint could have been done more carefully, especially on the sides of the forehead. Without being perfect, the head does resemble the actor well. The paint and gloss on the eyes is very well done, though difficult to notice because they are sculpted in a fairly squinted position; the paint is also very good on the three guns. The hands have very nicely sculpted lines and veins, and possibly some subtle paint work too.

The figure comes wearing a two-piece black suit (hence "Men in Black"), black tie, black silver-buckled belt, black socks, and glossy black shoes, as well as a white dress shirt. The socks are a nice touch, as they are often omitted in other products, making formally-dressed figures look silly when their emaciated plastic ankles are exposed. The two-piece black suit is made of a soft, slightly velvety material, which looks great, although it can attract dust. The three front buttons on the suit jacket are functional; there are also three buttons on each jacket cuff.

Agent K comes with a two-part display stand, one extra pair of relaxed hands (the figure comes wearing gun-grip hands out of the box), translucent sunglasses, and three different alien-hunting guns. Each of the three guns has a black handle and various chrome and translucent sections. While they do not look particularly realistic, the guns appear to be movie-accurate.

The action figure body appears to be of an older type, with the hands permanently attached to their wrist pegs. The body has pretty good articulation, but is a little bit floppy and jerky: the ankles are a little weak, and the arms cannot keep raised positions easily or precisely as the jacket tugs on them. Otherwise the figure does not suffer from common articulation problems such as at the wrists or ankles, elbows or knees. The figure stands reasonably well without the included stand.

Overall, despite the somewhat impressionistic head sculpt and the dated body type, this seems to be a very decent product. I purchased it with the intention of customizing/kitbashing, but we'll see what happens to it in the end.
