An unexpected visitor: Victorian era adventurer and man-out-of-time Charles 'Chas' Anderson has been, for the present at least, reassigned from BAM-HQ to SCU-HQ:

Love the figure and THAT magazine, ..(very clever ref. to KTC!) but I still hate that damned hat!  lol!

Have you flopped the pic. or just changed the hat around? The side that's turned up seems to change.

I flipped the hat between poses. I tried the figure with other hats. I was hoping a pith helmet would work, but it just didn't quite look right. I may try snipping the thread that holds up the side brim. I have another hat I can try, but I seem to have temporarily misplaced it.

K-Troop made the magazine cover featuring his Kamiko character.

Dal sent the figure over from the UK. He originally had a custom made bowler hat on the figure that looked rather natty.

Okay Dave. I totally love the look of Victorian era adventurer and man-out-of-time Charles 'Chas' Anderson. I’m really loving his outfit.

Looking good Dave! The teddy bear on the amp is a great touch. What is the small box by her feet? Is it some kind of 1/6 toy or board game box?

It looks like a game board, huh? Just a pic I printed out from online. It was near at hand so I used it to suggest a bit of basement clutter.

I think I have to send Dave some better hats I made out of felt that are too big for my female characters but will probably fit that character well.

KTC actually sent SCU the magazine cover and told him to use it as he pleases. Good to see he has found a constructive use for it.

Screaming Head

On the website where I found this action figure head - for cheap - it is identified only as "DiD Screaming Head." Apparently there are certain words, phrases, and names that can no longer be used online, even on hobby websites specializing in historical and military figures, without running the risk of being "de-platformed."

Nice pic. on Monkey Depot, it is listed as screaming Hitler head. The DiD Hitler figure came with two heads; one screaming, one not. The ones to always go first are the "not" screaming heads.

Not anymore. Now it's just a Screaming Head. That's where I found this one, while randomly looking through figure heads.

https://www.monkeydepot.com/Head_DiD_Screaming_Head_No_Neck_Adaptor_p/dl2929.htm

The complete figure was really expensive when I saw it a few years ago. I kinda wanted one, because, y'know, Hogan's Heroes generation and all, but no way was I gonna pay hundreds of dollars.

I think the Screaming Head was only $21 when I bought it. Haven't seen the non-screaming version come up for sale. I would have preferred non-screaming, but... yeah, it must have been $21, because I remember thinking that for about twenty bucks, it was worth a gamble. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. Probably... something along the lines of what you see here. Head in a jar type concept.

More likely, it will be head in the bottom of the spare parts box, never to be seen again.

Or... crazed Messerschmitt pilot! Shocked Like John Belushi in 1941, only... not American.

I'd thought of using the screaming Hitler head on some retro robotic body and having something like a laser weapon popping out of his chest...hence Robot Laser Hitler. Another idea that never came to fruition, largely for lack of a suitable robot body.

Does this mean that you, too, own a Screaming Hitler head?

I think maybe this calls for... a band! Because The Screaming Hitlers would be an excellent name for a punk rock band, wouldn't it? cheers

I bet you could adapt the Screaming Hitler head... or even better, the Steel Ape Robotic Hitler head... to a body along the lines of the Action Man Toxic Robots.

I suppose you could pop the head on to an old Mister Machine toy to make Steampunk Schickelgrüber.

I don't have a screaming Hitler Head. I'm still debating if I should get one. My thoughts for the robot Hitler were inspired by this 28mm gaming figure.

https://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/prod.php?prod=279

The Screaming Hitlers would be good name for a band of Hitler Impersonators who play rock and roll version of Wagnerian operas for Neo-Nazis.

Incidentally, I'm really liking the way my male pilot figure is turning out. I put a set of RAF wings (what the RAF calls a pilot brevet) on his chest and flight lieutenant ranks (equal to army captain) on his shoulders. I got these parted out at the same time as I got the flight helmet and they've bee awaiting a home ever since. I could have made him a Squadron Leader (equivalent to major) but wanted him to be a bit lower, as Laura will likely be the K-Troop Squadron Leader.

The picture you used is one of the very famous "Dogs Playing Poker" by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. (There are actually 18 of them.) They were commissioned in 1903 by Brown & Bigelow to advertise cigars. Almost as famous as Tretchikof's "Lady with the Green Face"....or that "Woodland Goddess" by J.H. Lynch, all of which pop up in our dioramas and photos here from time to time.

Dave this picture would totally work in black and white. Actually I think having it in black and white would definitely make it scary looking picture. But I also think it works in colour too. It’s definitely very different and I mean that in a good way.

Finally got "Bearded Man" aka Professor Victor Champion re-bodied on to a TBLeague M32 seamless body, replacing a no-name plastic body that kept falling apart.

SCU-HQ: Like, Whateverz - Page 14 July16

The clothing he was previously wearing still fits, and now his arms are much less likely to randomly fall off.

The TBLeague (Phicen) body offers a greater range of motion and provides substantially more heft, so the figure stands and balances better than before.

I find TB league figures with detachable feet to be the most stable.
