I saw these Safari Toobs the other day at Hobby Lobby. They are scaled more towards 1:12 but still look pretty cool.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy

Get a castor to shrink those and you'd have a helluva set to sell.

I bought a similar Donald Duck figurine with intentions of putting the head on a figure. I'm a believer in the idea that these style of figurines can provide heads for Joe figures.

Those 4 figures from the SDCC A Fan's hope DVD w/ Stan, Joss, and I forget who the other 2 guys were fit well. That's where the Stan Lee head (MC11) in my store is from. I didn't get the pack w/ Joss, and whoever that other guy was, because it's the exact same DVD, but I keep thinking about it every time I walk by it at TrU.

I found some mini-figure Turtles at Goodwill the other day and it took a while to locate the origin of them.

They are the Mini-Ripped up figures from the 2005 line. The heads, hands, and feet look viable for 90s cartoon 1:18 Turtles. They all use the same sculpt so there wouldn't be much diversity to the team's look. Scale pictures will be added in a little bit.




I also saw a pretty good custom using the Flying Heroes Turtles from the Bridge Direct.


The 2 heads are on the 2 Leo's in the front. They are on the classic figures bodies. For scale, Slash is a MU Rhino.


The Hero portal Casey Jones might work as well. I don't have one of those yet though for scale.

You know, that statue reminds me...where did the Nazi SS chick thing get started? I've seen pin-up artwork, several things in movies...it just seems kinda "out there".

Arise, Necro Thread, ARISE!

Really should have grabbed "Woo Hoo!" Homer.



And I think I can get a helmet on ol' Donald here if I take off that cap of his. I really think this would work with an angry Donald head. I'm sure there's an overpriced PVC figurine out there somewhere that would work.

Dollar Tree PVCs. Apparently there are several figures in the Simpsons line but all I saw were Marge, Woo Hoo Homer, Bartman, Lis and I believe Maggie. The adults being the only Joe compatible ones. I'd like to find Mr. Burns. He'd be good on a suited buck.

I have seen the Lego heads used on Joe figures, may have been on HT.

I got the Krusty PVC figure. I like that one a lot and plan on putting it on an Ice Cream guy buck.

besides that there are some new Ghostbuster mini figures that have an animated look to them but fit fairly well. They have figures from both the new movie and the classics. In blind bags and as 3-packs.

The kabuto from Retaliation Budo is about 40.5mm tall, so might work. At the very least they should work as a display piece, if not a functioning helmet or head sculpt.

Overpriced vinyl art figures make me laugh.
I saw these Safari Toobs the other day at Hobby Lobby. They are scaled more towards 1:12 but still phenq review and results are awesome look pretty cool.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy
I am never able to understand why some figures are so overpriced. Do people even buy them at those prices? Why can't these be fairly priced?

I know the artist vinyls can be brutally limited in production size, and if you've got a pretty good following they'll sale out quick.
