Miss Ming the Merciless looks cool. I have to agree Phicens are very hard to dress, which is why mine wear so little! lol!

That land rover is amazing too!

Oh on another subject, the only 1/6 scale realistic land rover I know of is a TAOWAN: 1/6 LAND ROVER WMIK released a good few years back now, and very expensive, but they are made of metal and are perfect replicas.

Thank you for that information, Mister Influence Man! That is now something I will start watching for. Razz

Finally I began experimenting with GI Joe uniforms, and started getting closer to a look I liked – safari chic! Or... Safari Chick chic!
Of course there's "safari chic".....and "SAFARI CHIC" !!!

Dave I am VERY impressed not only with your dressed figures, but even more so with your seemingly infinite patience!

America's First Lady, right there! (Plus, that Eastern European "vampire" accent! Oh, man...!)

My patience is wearing thin when it comes to "dressing dolls." But I think the time invested in these two was worthwhile:

I agree with your observations (in another topic) about the contrast of the "realism" of these figures relative to the VAM/MAM/Joe figs. I will try some photos to see how they work together. This "new generation" of figures is too realistic, while Barbie, Bratz, Ever After High, Wild Hearts Crew, and most playline female figs are too toylike. The stylized yet not entirely realistic Integrity lines (Dynamite Girls, Poppy Parker) might be the best current option for adding "gender diversity" to the world of VAM/MAM/Joe.

In the photograph it looks like you'd run out of patience when you put the tights back on Ming! lol! lol! lol!

I think you might be right there, however I myself have absolutely no trouble at all with it still being exclusively a "Man's World".
That's how it was when I was a kid and I felt absolutely no inclination at all to introduce any gender diversity back then.
That was "dolls" and no boy wanted to be accused of playing with them! lol!

Razz  I was going to say almost the exact same thing! I've let myself be lured in by the seamless figure pics on the forum and elsewhere, and I was realizing today that I've been neglecting my actual action figures! I have apparently accrued quite a few since joining this forum, a couple of which I already forgot I had! I'm re-discovering them as I search for clothes for the "girl dolls." Eventually, then, I'll be getting back to my "GI Joe roots" of "manly-man adventures," so to speak.

(Altho' I must admit to sometimes feeling discouraged when I see all the elaborate flocking on a lot of the figs on this forum. All I have are some painted-hair 40th Joes and some 21st-Century guys. No "fuzz heads" at all in my crew, and certainly none to send off to get an elaborate two-toned hairstyle with sideburns and beard.)

THAT is a source of envy for me too!
I have quite a few candidates that would be highly suitable for flocking, but sending out to any of the fantastic experts whose work is featured here is too cost prohibitive and I've no actual experience with flocking myself.
I think it's something I'll just have to bite the bullet, watch about 50 online tutorials and have a go myself.

Shocked That was totally evil! Razz

Do you flock your figs... that never sounds right, does it... yourself, or do you send them out? And where do you find enough flockable guys... that still doesn't sound right... to start with?
