Thanks Rogue. Unfortunately I don’t do spares she’s one of a kind and the more I look at her on the shelf the less I see the flaws.

I'm still hoping some more Squaxx will post their creations and share with the newest board members (including myself) the characters they have created in the past.
Really enjoying your work, good to see some good old kitbashing again.
Anyway here's my creative blast from the past.

Wow there’s no words that I can add that’s not already been said in that thread. I recommend everyone who’s joined since 2015 to read the whole thread and see the effort and skill put into that build. It is truly at another level to my wee 12” efforts 😂😂😂

I really liked seeing the evolution over the months- I don’t believe it will ever be topped unless you have something else planned?

I hope it doesn’t put off anyone else posting their efforts as if still like to see and possibly learn from others projects. A few good tips I might try and scale down from your thread atp

Your work on these figures is really great and nicely detailed
Taking a kit of one character and turnng it into a different character  is no easy task, and you have obviously nailed that task.

The poses for the Dredd & Batman figures are great, so unique, very different from the norm. It looks like they have gone head to head until they are both exhausted.
I especially like the Ro-Jaws and Haogy. The position of Hoagy's eyes really bring the  sculpt to life. I would offer one bit of advice, grab a pack of sculpey and scratch build a full figure, you have definitely got the skill to produce some outstanding pieces.

Thanks for the encouragement atp I think it’s a confidence thing and doing “human” faces is very daunting.

I have a few other conversions I’d like to attempt. The range of kits and what I can do to them is running out so I might just have to have a go 😳

I got the inspiration for the Dredd / Batman from a panel in Judgment in Gotham one of my favourite crossovers. Initially I wanted to go for their fight on top of the Train but that was gonna be too big for the space I have.

Well I thought it would take me longer than it has with other distractions going on but I still found time to mould, craft, cut and sand my latest attempt at a tooth character.
This time it’s my first 1:1 (I think it’s about right?)

Fellow Squaxx I give you Stogie.

When I first saw him in the prog I thought how great having an opinionated talking cigar. I loved him ever since so I had to create my very own.

I used an old toy from a burger chain I had lying about and cut away everything bar the hands, feet and body core. This allowed me to attach the milliput.

It was hard to find many colour references so I went for the one that I liked the most - cigar brown with brass trim.

As with Lawson I’ve posted primed, base coat and a few finished shots. I even used some filter floss from my fish tank supplies as a wee puff of vape.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
