Introduction

I don't really play video games (did some computer games, and that was mostly in the fairly distant past), but that does not mean that I don't come across cool action figures based on video game characters. And I don't just mean the Battlefront versions of Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Snowtroopers. CC Toys has just released a product called Unexplored Nate Summer Version, obviously inspired by the Nathan Drake character from the popular Uncharted video game series (and, if I am correct, the character's look from Uncharted 4). Although I knew next to nothing of the character or the game, I liked the set, so I got it when I found it for a decent enough price. I did some research preparing for the review, but I'm sure there are plenty of things I may have overlooked.

Packaging: 4/4 stars

Although there is nothing particularly mind-blowing here, we get a sturdy and compact box with a fine color rendition of the product and all the necessary information. Inside is a single black foam trey with its black foam lid, providing safe accommodation for the figure and its accessories. Everything is completely safe and collector friendly. I particularly appreciate the combination between small size and sturdiness of the box and the use of a foam rather than plastic trey on the inside.

Sculpt: 3.5/4 stars

The character's head sculpt is very close or identical to what we see in the promotional images and the photograph on the box. The light and quality of my photography is not quite good enough to give it real justice. The sculpt is executed in minute detail, with tiny intentional imperfections and wrinkles and wounds/scars on the skin, fine (though not quite Hot Toys fine) hair and stubble. (The sculpting of the hair is actually finer than what you see in the photos, in which the camera has focused on the facial features instead.) The sculpting extends to the torso and arms, with veins, muscles, and hairs indicated here as well (the lower body -- judging by the lower legs -- does not have this kind of detailed treatment, but then again, it is not meant to be visible). The hand sculpts are made of plastic a little softer than what I have usually seen, but easy to manipulate and use with the accessories. The sculpted detail on the shoes is excellent, and the sculpted accessories (flashlight, gun, etc) also look very good. Nate stands about 11.75 inches (30 cm) tall and is well-proportioned except perhaps for a slight giraffe-neck effect (presumably intended to counter-balance the clothed upper body but still perceptible).

There is something a bit off from the face of the video game character (which actually changed a little between games) -- perhaps the proportions of the head and/or the size and shape of the jaw or the whole lower part of the face). The resulting face is good, but not an exact rendition of the character's; it should certainly be longer (especially the forehead and mouth/chin areas) -- see HERE. Perhaps one can think of it as a younger, more boyish version of the character from the game; or a cosplayer playing the character; or perhaps the animated rendition of the character was wrong all along. I mean, Tom Holland was supposed to play him in a movie... And it is not as if Sideshow did better (it went the other extreme). Am I too easy on this because it is based on an animated character, or because I am not particularly familiar with/attached to the source material?

Paint: 4/4 stars

While not appearing to be particularly complex or spectacular at first sight, the paint job on this figure and its accessories is actually very good. There is subtle weathering on things like the bodkin, flashlight, gun, and hook, and they have been painted in a manner that makes them look realistic and used. The eyes are glossy and beautifully done, although the pupils might be a tad too large. The hair may appear a bit flat when it comes to color, but then again so was that of the computer character. The eyebrows and stubble, however, are very impressively handled, and the wounds/scars (mostly on the right side -- camera left -- of the face) are done well -- not too much or too little color added. A sort of freckle effect is applied to the upper body and arms in a manner subtle enough to look pretty realistic. The shoes have been painted to look like used and scuffed leather, while the loopholes look metallic. The watch's face looks glossy and translucent. I don't think there is much more than we could have possibly expected in this category.

Articulation: 3/4 stars

The overall articulation of the figure is quite decent, but it leaves something to be desired. The head can pose well on top of the neck; the figure also articulates well at the shoulders, hips/thighs, (double-jointed) knees, and wrists and ankles. However, there is very little give at the lower neck, somewhat limited abdominal crunch, and single-jointed elbows that can only bend to 90 degrees. Additionally, the lower half of the body is a little bit on the floppy side, and the ankles in particular seem rather weak, although the figure can stand on its own. The lower body articulation is slightly restricted by the tight pants, which would prevent very wide stances.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Nu0610

Accessories: 3.5/4 stars

There are quite a few accessories included with the set. Apart from the action figure stand and the stand-alone name-sign "Nate," there are the hook (with articulated claws) with attached coiled rope, the bodkin, the flashlight, the watch, the waist pack, and the ring, which comes on the left relaxed hand, but is a separate little metal piece that you could theoretically put on another hand and finger. I overlooked (and therefore forgot to show) a little belt loop (or bracket) that closes with magnets and is intended to secure the coiled rope to the belt.

In terms of weapons, the set includes only a Beretta 92FS Brigarier Inox handgun, which has apparently appeared in all four games of the series. While I realize that providing the whole arsenal of weapons featured in the game would have been impractical or cost-prohibitive, it seems that one or two extra pieces would have been advisable, perhaps a rifle that the character is often shown slinging about on his back. Judging by Uncharted 4 alone, additional weapons could have included: Colt Rail Gun/M1911A1 hybrid, a flintlock pistol, a Mateba Model 6 Unica, a Sa. Vz. 61 Skorpion/IMI Micro Uzi hybrid, a Robinson Armament XCR-L CQB, an IMI Romat, a Ruger Mini-30 Tactical, a Ruger Mini-14, a Beretta ARX-160, a Remington ACR, an M14, a Winchester Model 1866, a Armscor/Rock Island Armory M30 M5 Matte Nickel, an RPG-7, and especially the SIG-Sauer SIG556 Classic rifle. And this doesn't take into account several oversized weapons. Apparently many of the weapons were misnamed and/or rendered somewhat incorrectly in the game (see HERE).

The nice paint and sculpting work done on the accessories has been mentioned above.

Outfit: 4/4 stars

The outfit is simple enough and reflects the character's look from Uncharted 4. It consisting of khaki-colored pants (chinos), a blue long-sleeved shirt (henley), and the harness/shoulder rig with a holster and ammo pouches. The pants are slightly distressed to make them look used. The blue shirt has some staining to make it look dusty and worn, and the long sleeves can be easily rolled up to achieve the iconic look from the game; it also features four silverish-colored buttons. The harness/shoulder rig is made of thin leather or leather-like material, complete with metal loops and caps. There is also some white padding over the lower torso/abdomen, secured with velcro behind the back; I removed it so that I could achieve the signature "half-tucked" effect. The outfit is completed with the brown walking shoes, which are finely sculpted and painted, as noted above.

Fun Factor: 3.5/4 stars

Despite the limited choice of weapons, the set comes with several accessories, and despite the less than perfect articulation, it poses very well. Because of this, it has plenty of fun potential. The only reason I'm giving this less than a perfect score is that the absence of any of the other protagonists (or antagonists) from the game means that one cannot easily pair the character with others from the same source -- at least not without some ambitious kitbashing.

Value: 3.5/4 stars

Retailing at about $160, this is not exactly cheap, but it is much more affordable than many other high-end action figures. Admittedly, you get a slightly inexact likeness and this is not a fully licensed collectible (hence the product name). But the product is very good overall, and unlike so many others these days (including some from very respected companies), comes with a nice array of accessories.

Things to watch out for

Giantoy, from which I purchased the figure, included a possibly generic note that it would not be responsible for broken wrist pegs. Whether this was in any way specific to this figure or a general disclaimer, be careful with the pegs (there are no spare ones included) and use a blow dryer or hot water to heat up the plastic when swapping hands. The tiny clip allowing the flashlight to attach to the belt can easily come off (though it was also easy to glue it back in place); and being black and tiny, it would be easy to lose -- so you would want to be careful with it. The little belt loop (bracket) intended to secure the coiled rope in place which I forgot to feature closes with magnets. This is generally great, but in this instance I noticed that the magnets were so strong, and the glue so weak, that one of the magnets became unglued from the (p?)leather strap. Easy to fix with some super glue, but another thing to keep in mind. Given the relative weakness of the ankles, the figure might topple relatively easily.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Nu1110

Overall: 3.6/4 stars

I am not disappointed with this product, but then again I did not have particularly high or set expectations. Yes, the likeness to the video game character could have been better, and we could have had slightly better articulation and a rifle, but all in all, Unexplored Nate is a pretty nice set.

VS TOYS BATHROOM - Fri Jan 25, 2019 2:28 am

I don't buy a lot of diorama elements these days, but ended up going for this when I considered several of the parted-out pieces. This review is dedicated in loving memory to one of our Founding Fathers who has since left us, but who would have loved this (and is surely loving it).

VS (Vicky Secret) Toys have produced a bathroom set that just became available Stateside. The set features a bathtub with a shower with hand-held adjustable hose, a toilet, a toilet paper holder, a bathrobe, a large towel, a smaller towel, and reversible printed tile floor and wall surfaces. There is even a little color graphic labeled "bathtub," but its purpose is somewhat indeterminate. The whole set comes packed into a white box (with various bathroom-related graphics on top) with a two-part foam trey, and an additional foam sheet to protect the wall surfaces.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr010

If you have been looking for additional "modern civilian" diorama pieces, these might be right up your alley; or if you want to put your favorite superheroes in humorous bathroom situations. Overall, the set is quite nice, while not quite perfect. Read on for the specifics, interspersed with another nine photos.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr011

The floor and wall surfaces are both reversible, giving you a choice between dark granite or light sandstone tiles (or something like that). The floor surface measures about 12 x 13.75 inches (30.5 x 35 cm). The wall surface folds into three consecutive segments, each 13.75 inches (35 cm) tall; two of the pieces are 12 inches (30.5 cm) wide, while one of the end pieces is 5.5 inches (14 cm) wide. You can place the floor and wall pieces in various configurations. A minor flaw is that the dark granite tile surfaces exhibit perfectly continuous lines and strands in the stone, which would not be the case with actual tile work. There are no other problems with these pieces, although I worry that with enough folding back and forth the printed surfaces would crack or at lest crease at the fold lines.

The bathtub is made of resin and is the heaviest piece in the set. It measures about 10.5 x 5 x 4.25 inches (25.5 x 12.5 x 11 cm) at the extremes. It is done nicely enough, although it has some slight imperfections (which might give it a slightly more realistic, lived-in look). The level of detail is not quite superb, with the most annoying (even if rarely visible) problem being the lack of a sculpted (never mind functional) drain at the bottom. Moreover, only on the faucet side is the tub designed to fit flush against a wall; generally the same should have been true for one of the long sides, but I suppose this way you can place the bathtub in whatever direction you choose. Your sixth-scale figures should have no problem fitting inside the tub, which was a pleasant surprise for me, as I half expected it to be undersized.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr013

The toilet paper holder is made of plastic and is intended to be attached to the wall with double-sided tape (provided and already attached to its back). I would have much preferred it to be done with magnets, so that you can choose which side of the wall surface background to place it on, and where exactly to do so, from scene to scene. Perhaps I am commitment-phobic, but I believe most people would see the advantage in that over getting stuck with a single permanent look or risk possibly damaging the wall surface when changing your set up. At any rate, I improvised and placed one magnet on the inside of the unexposed double-sided tape (it is concealed by the outer structure of the toilet paper holder) and another on the other side of the wall surface. The holder itself is a slightly more elaborate version of the simpler classic look, but this allows you to supply what does not come with it -- an actual toilet paper roll. I improvised one of these too, cutting a narrow strip of actual toilet paper and rolling it around a foamie that I jammed inside the holder, leaving a portion of the strip to hang out as it would in real life.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr014

The diorama area is big enough for at least two figures.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr015

And so is the tub, even if it is a somewhat tight fit. And unlike real full-sized humans, these don't seem to take issue with the faucet pushing against their backs.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr016

Like the toilet paper holder, the shower component is designed to be attached to the wall with double-sided tape (provided and already attached to its back). Again, I would have much preferred this to be done with magnets, and in fact used magnets for my photos (placing one on top of the shower component and the other on the other side of the wall background). The hand-held shower head can be attached to or detached from the component, and the adjustable hose attached to them is made of a fine metal chain that works and looks great.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr017

The toilet bowl itself is made of resin, but it is not nearly as heavy as the larger and more solid bathtub. The toilet seat and lid are made of plastic, and are both articulated. Unlike the bathtub, the toilet has a sculpted (non-functioning) drain. Believe it or not, the size of sixth-scale toilets has been a concern, and this one seems about right, measuring about 4.5 x 3.5 x 3 inches (11.5 x 9 x 7.5 cm) at the extremes. The design does leave something to be desired: it is not clear (to me, anyway) where the water tank is, and the part that seems intended to fit flush against the wall is prevented from doing so by the portion below it jutting out in the same direction. Perhaps these are the tankless toilets of the future. I suppose leaving the lid up helps hide these potential visual flaws.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr018

In terms of soft goods, the set includes the bath robe, the larger towel, and the smaller towel. All three are in white. (Contrary to some of the promotional materials, no underpants are provided.) The towels are a fairly basic affair, and feel somewhat like the real thing only on the "face" side. The larger towel can be wrapped around a male figure's waist, or around a female figure's entire torso. The smaller towel can probably be bunched up into a turban, but I haven't tried.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Vstbr110

The bath robe is made of a soft cotton-like material (perhaps actual cotton) that feels much like the real thing, and comes complete with pockets and a belt. It fits comfortably on female figures, and well enough on male ones (if you don't mind shortish sleeves and a tight fit on the upper arms).

Overall, this is a pretty decent and versatile set. Each of the pieces in it (except perhaps for the soft goods) could have been even better, but on the whole it gets the job done and covers most of the basic things you will find in one of the rooms of a modern home. It also works and looks very well with figures in its scale. Moreover, there really isn't much in the way of alternatives except for Barbie (and possibly other doll) accessories. With some customizing, these, too, can be made realistic -- for an example, see the first post in the Barbie deBarbiefied thread HERE. But here I only improvised the magnetic attachment of the shower component and toilet paper holder (because I did not want to tape them in place), and made the little toilet paper roll. Of course, you'd need a few more things to make up a complete bathroom (like a sink and mirror), but it's a decent place to start.

Where to buy? Try eBay or, in the US:
Big Bad Toy Store $110
Cotswold Collectibles $106
Monkey Depot (sold out, some parted-out pieces available)
Timewalker Toys $106
Toy Anxiety (some parted-out pieces available)

Hope this was helpful and let me know what you think.

LAPD figures (pic heavy) - Sat Apr 28, 2018 6:54 am

So here we go again.  Some of you will have seen these before, but they have not been posted on here in any depth.

These are the 5 LAPD figures I have put together.  When I first got interested in 1/6 figures one of the first figures I saw at the shop was the DiD driver LAPD SWAT point man, and I was in awe at the detail and volume of parts included with the figure.  Of course I ended up buying one and it eventually spawned this set.  The pics here were taken at different times so the details on some of the figures may change from picture to picture.

DiD "Driver" figure.  I was really taken aback by the shear volume of equipment that comes with this figure.  I have not added any equipment to this figure that did not come with it, and in fact some of the pieces are still in the box!!  The figure itself has a semi seamless body with the top half being seamless.  It is quite flexible, and relatively easy to pose.  This is the one with the Ryan Gosling head sculpt, but that is not something I took too much notice of and you will see that in some of the pics he is now wearing the included respirator so it could be anyone under there.
I will let the pics talk for themselves.

The next figure I added was the DiD "Denver" SWAT figure.  Same body and basic uniform as the "Driver" figure, but a lot of different equipment with this one.

I then Wanted to do a K9 team as I already had the German Sheppherd dog seen here.  I got hold of a Colin Farrell figure from the movie SWAT.  The uniform was a reasonable match to the DiD figures and I found and added equipment to it to represent my take on a K9 handler in a tactical situation.  I also had the dogs harness, and added some other items again my take on an LAPD police dog.  I also adapted the patches from a "Driver" figure to make the K9 patches seen on these 2 figures I also added additional patches from Patches Of Pride and One Sixth King.  The dog had some minor re-painting and detailing done to it, and he is named Axel after a real LAPD K9.

Next I acquired another DiD Driver figure at a more than reasonable price, and went about producing a 3rd SWAT figure.  The Head sculpt was changed, and various additional equipment sourced including the shotgun and breaching tools.  I made up a custom "Avery" name tape for this one too as having 2 Drivers didn't work for me.

And then I saw the Toy City LAPD patrolman uniform set.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures MbVGRls

I thought this would be another nice addition to my LAPD collection, so I found a body and head sculpt and started to put this together.

The basic uniform is very good but maybe a little tight on more muscled torsos.  The belt is great, but some of the pouches are not so good and when I referenced LAPD belt kit it was missing some items often found. Because of this what you see in the pics is a mix of the Toy City equipment and additional pieces i sourced elsewhere. The Beretta included is pretty basic so I swapped this for a better looking piece, and it also comes with a left handed holster, which is ok, but I wanted this right handed and so I adapted the Toy City one accordingly.  I also added the radio seen here as I wanted one with the separate microphone.

#newproduct #military #modern
So following on from my recent DAK Pzr Grenadier build thread I thought you all might like to also see the pics I took while putting together the Kettenkrad diorama that he is now displayed with.

This was put together about a year ago now, and consists of a DiD Kettenkrad with trailer, a 21st Century Kettenkrad wit a Dragon trailer, a 21st Century motorcycle combination and 8 figures (if you include the Pzr Grenadier detailed elsewhere.

Lets start with the Vehicles.  The 2 kettenkrads are quite different in their levels of detail as you can see, with the DiD being significantly more accurate to the actual vehicles.  The DiD is also designed so that it can be relatively easily converted to Radio Control.

The backgrounds seen here are posters bought from the internet, and the sandy ground is done with war gaming mats.

The 21st Century Motorcycle combination I had already prepared for another diorama, but used it here instead, so there are no pictures of it being prepared.  It did get new crew, but more on them later.  The bike itself does not represent any actually WWII German motorcycle that I can find.  There are bits of what look like BMW in there and bits of Zundapp I think, but it doesn't look too out of place.

The 21st Century Kettekrad needed to have its towing bar modified by drilling a hole in it, and then fabricating a pin which would secure it to the Dragon trailer.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Pp5pAAH

After this was done Both Kettenkrads had markings and number plates applied, detail painting done and a little bit of weathering, and I began to load them with gear (an ongoing process until they look right to me).

Whilst doing this I also started to put together the uniforms and equipment for the crews.  I can't tell you exactly what figures I used, as most of them were spares I had lying around.  The uniform and equipment parts are DAK parts from any number of different makers including Dragon, DiD and 21st Century to name a few.  As you will see from the pics their looks evolved as I acquired new parts etc... whilst the build was in progress.

With these figures I like to treat each one as its own separate model, using as many photographs from the period as I can find to try and get things looking the way they should.  I appreciate that they should probably look a lot more dusty and weathered but they are done to suit my taste which is for a less weathered look.  I have 1-1 kit for most of these uniform and equipment parts and I will sometimes try out wearing the kit as the figure will be to see if it actually works or not, how comfy it is, whether you can sit down in it etc....

Here is the DiD Kettenkrad all crewed up.

Ok,  So this is the last DAK figure I put together, probably just before Christmas I think.

Whilst it is not a new figure, it hasn't been seen here in any detail so I thought I would post up the pics I took whilst I was putting the figure together.

Here is what I started with, A DiD body and head sculpt, and the Alert Line DAK Infantry soldier uniform set.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures 2FqlCkY

This is a good set with a lot of very nice uniform parts for creating a DAK soldier.  As well as several uniform options it has a basic set of infantry equipment which is of not too bad a quality but I think better can be had, and as you will see the equipment I ended up using was not all from this set.

I did use mostly the basic uniform parts from the set as can be seen in these pics.  The epaulets and cap soutache were repainted to have green waffenfarb signifying Pzr Grenadiers rather than the white infantry ones supplied.  The boots from the set as used here are ok, but if I am honest the DID ones from the Luca set I think look better.
The main reason for my getting this set was the greatcoat, as I didn't have a figure wearing one and it is another piece of early DAK specific kit.  Later on standard great coats were issued, but this early type as far as I am aware was only really issued in Africa.  The coat is not a bad representation, it's shade of brown is debatable, but I think is ok from the research i have done into this.

The equipment on the figure was a mix of the stuff from the Alert Line set and my favourite pieces mainly from DiD again.  
The belt, Y straps, bayonet frog, goggles and ammo pouches are alert line.  2 sets of ammo pouches are pictured here as I was debating whether to go brown or black with these and I forget where the black versions are from.  The entrancing tool, bayonet, canteens, mess tin, gas mask canister, helmet and rifle are all DiD.  The A frame pack and bag are Dragon I think.

Here are some pics of the equipment before fitting, and as it went onto the figure.

I thought I'd celebrate the return to functionality with the PB pics debacle by going waaay back and posting my first major customized figure that I did over 10 years ago. I reposted this a few years ago on OSW but here I'm reaching back to the original post I made on 6th D. [pics are actually updated and new]:



I've wanted to do this figure since I first laid eyes on the photo at least six years ago. [note: that actually means 2002, since I first posted this in 2008!]
Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Fally%201

I started to do the figure but could never really finish it off; as my skills improved I kept wanting to go back and improve it, especially with the weathering. Plus I wanted to add a vignette base, which I finally did recently. Here's how it finally turned out:
Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Fally%20aged%202

And here are some color and detail shots:

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures P1060138b
Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures P1060132b

Getting the pose just right was not easy, as I wanted it to be as exact as possible. I think I came pretty close, but it's still a little off, I think. Doing a figure from a single photo is interesting because what's unseen on the hidden side is up to your imagination, but I deduced he had to be carrying those ammo boxes slung over his MP40 (you can see a corner of one peaking out over the shoulder). Headsculpt is Egon; smock is the original DML GJ type; gear is all DML except for the NLM holster and custom breadbag strap; breadbag and MP40 pouch repainted field blue; canteen customised from DML parts; scarf is 21c; cap was acquired from a board member years ago (I've forgotten who; and where the cap originally came from), repainted and insignia replaced.

The weathering and vignette base were fun to do. The mud and dirt on the clothes and gear was FastMache celluclay mixed in with Tamiya acrylics (flat earth, red brown, black, water in various ratios to get the varying shades). As you can tell from the guy's pants in the original photo, this guy got pretty dirty! I can just imagine how muddy those soldiers got during the winter/spring of 43-44 in those Italian mountains, and the trick was to build up layers of dirt, grime, and mud. The "wet" look was just super glue brushed over it when it was dry, which helps to set it and protect it. The base is from Michaels, and the ground cover is FastMache, painted with the aforementioned colors. The grass, while not perfectly to scale, is decent as an overall effect--it's from a model railroad company called Silflor (I used a product called buffalo grass and XL tufted grass). If you look closely you might be able to see some glistening "dewdrops" on the wet grass, which was just copious amounts of Tamiya acrylic clear. Rocks was just driveway gravel.



The text above was copied verbatim from the original 6thD post, making this a true "archive" post; however, the pics are from about 3 years ago and I just recently edited them for brightness and color (wasn't happy with the original pics from 2008). Those who know my work know I have kind of an obsession on getting poses to match old photographs or film stills as exactly as possible. Also, the diorama base was so much effort I never did another one again!

Hope you enjoy this trip down [my] memory lane!

To help with sorting and searching through this forum as we accumulate more and more topics (threads), I invite all members posting a new topic to add hashtags at the end of the first post. If you have already created a topic, you can go back to it, and edit the first post to include the hashtags of your choice. I have gone through a few topics started by others and myself and included some hashtags as a test, but feel free to add more of your own, where applicable. We do not seem to be limited in number of hashtags, so some redundancy is ok (e.g., both #lordoftherings and #lotr).

By clicking on a hashtag, you will be able to see all topics (threads) tagged with it -- you will be taken to a page containing the first posts in these topics (there may be further posts with additional info and images, so you might want to enter the respective topics and follow through). In Profile you can follow specific hashtags of your choice.

Working list of common hashtags below. You are not limited to this, and feel free to supply additional suggestions; so as to minimize the number of hits during searches, please do not put the # in front of your suggestions, which I will integrate into the list. At any rate this should demonstrate the principle of the thing. There are basically three types of hashtags that would apply: descriptive (like #historical or #outdoors), franchise (like #starwars or #aliens), and maker (like #easyandsimple or #hottoys).

Barbie deBarbiefied (continuously updated) - Sun Apr 15, 2018 11:18 pm

The adaptation or modification of items produced for Barbie and similar franchises for other, more realistic sixth-scale purposes is an aspect of our hobby. So it makes sense to recreate the Barbie deBarbiefied thread on this forum. Feel free to post your new finds and modifications here, or to reintroduce the ones you have already shared.

For example, this bathroom suite, where the bath tub, sink, mirror, towels, toothbrush, toothpaste, and bottles and containers were all adopted or adapted from Barbie products.

I'm going to tackle a new major project - bashing the GRS operators from the movie 13 hours - The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

My plan is to start with Rone, the character played by James Badge Dale.  He wears a SPEAR ELCS harness over his body armor similar to BBI's Raptor in tan, instead of Raptor's 3-color desert pattern.

Topics tagged under modern on OneSixthFigures Rone110


My question is whether this harness has ever been made in 1:6 scale, and if so where could I find it.

Any information will be helpful.  Thanks!

Rattenkrieg Stalingrad 1942 - Tue Apr 10, 2018 9:28 pm

German 71st Infantry Division Kleeblat (Cloverleaf)
194th Infantry Regiment
2nd Battalion
Rattenkrieg (“rat-war”) raged every square foot of Stalingrad on September, 30 1942. Basements became assault origins as German infantry adopted tactics to avoid crossing deadly streets plagued by new Russian urban warfare. Engineers would breech adjoining walls with 3kg pole charges and clear the resulting entrys with FMW 35 flame-throwers as Landsers stood ready with cluster grenades to remove any surviving Russians before the squad entered and began their bottom to top attack on the buildings. Here we see 1st Company 2nd Platoon on the verge of detonation as the section leader signals his go ahead. Their day is sure to end as a major victory. But, will it be from clearing the building, or just taking the kitchen? Regardless, tomorrow they’ll wake and do it all again.

Forrest Gump - Lt. Dan Taylor - Fri Apr 06, 2018 10:54 am

Aside from Forrest himself, Lt. Dan is definitely one of the more memorable characters from the film.
It took a lot of careful screen-grabbing and rewinding, but I think I managed to assemble a pretty good Lt. Dan.
After I completed the build, I took Dan outside and grabbed a couple shots.

This one was definitely a little trickier to put together, getting shots of his gear and helmet graffiti were tough but I managed to get it pretty good I think.

The graffiti on this side of the helmet got a little squished, you can run out of room on a 1/6 helmet real quick.

He's got a Dragon uniform, HT ruck, with Ace helmet, boots and gear.
The monkey-braided rope is actually some elastic I got with a new pair of shoes, it looked enough like paracord to me, so I tied it together and braided it accordingly.

Here's my Forrest Gump trio.

Two things right off, he had a green helmet band instead of black, and also grey duct-tape
instead of black on the spare radio battery on his pack.

The hardest part was finding out his exact gear load-out, and his helmet graffiti.

My orginal first photo shoot "Patrol" - Sun Apr 01, 2018 6:35 pm

Hi all, This was my first photo shoot I did back in 2002. TV's Combat! is my favorite TV show. So when DML came on the scene, I started buying up any US figures. When Scott was released I started building a squad based loosely on Combat! Which later turned into 3rd platoon, Item company, US 4th ID. Currently I have a full platoon, with mg, bazooka and HQ teams.
Anyway this is The Patrol,

Germans lay in wait.

My DAK figures - Sat Mar 31, 2018 6:53 am

I have a great love of the Deutches Afrika Korps and so when I started to collect 1/6 it was logical that I would have some DAK figures in my collection.  My DAK figures are currently displayed in the 3 dioramas pictured here.
