Cousin Monday to the rescue! What was Doctor Evil thinking, he almost revealed his secret HQ. Really liked the second part Dave.

it's appearing more and more that Kamiko will have to outwit Cousin Monday rather than Dr. Evil. It should be an interesting cat fight.

Kimono Troop Command,

If you would like to put TNHQ on the map, I'm in Maryville, TN. fifteen miles south of Knoxville.

Thanks!

Daryl

I didn't read all of the post at first, I apologize. Now TNHQ is responding by the Navajo Code Talker that I just received.

Thanks Dave and Dal!

I recently got the figure, and it included a laminated card of Navajo language.
Along with a patch. I sent the seller a note asking if they were original parts
for the figure (I don't think they were) but I have yet to get a response.
He is saying that he's in Japan and working communication, and that he's in
the military division. In the Navajo language.

I found a photo of a jungle in the South Pacific for the background, photographed
him against a white background, where I could combine the two images.

I did that and the speech box in photoshop.

I just got the figure, he says seven phrases in the Navajo language, followed by
the english translation. I had thought about getting one years ago, and recently
decided to. I got him for $18. The box is a little rough but I didn't care, my figures
don't stay boxed...LOL After all, they're no fun in the box, right?

I always liked those figures. Great photo and nice acquisition!

IIRC I think the translation card did come with the figure originally.

cheers cheers cheers

New Mexico is home turf for the Navajo as well as for K-Troop! At the very least, let’s hope they know somebody who knows somebody whose uncle has a friend who....

Look what you’ve done, TNShooter! You’ve triggered a recruitment drive at K-Troop HQ!

Razz

Fun stuff!

Good luck! Let me know when you do! So far the closest I've found is Barbie.


But either way great additions to the story TNshooter and Kimono Troop Command!

Something tells me that the Chinese manufacturers don't see much of a market for female Native-American head sculpts.

Or really anyone that isn't white, Asian, or a white passing Asian.

Not to say this is a bad thing, but more ethnic diversity in sculpts would be fantastic. Thankfully it is happening in the male area with brands like Dam Toys, Soldier Story, and Easy Simple.

I got a black lady headsculpt from Triad Toys in the summer on ebay. I really like it. But I haven't bodied her yet.

The lack of ethnic diversity is even worse among Phicen / TBLeague bodies, which I mostly use, though some of the people on another Forum (OneSixthFigure.com) have posted articles on using either pastels or dyes to give silicone bodies African skin tones. I certainly would like to see more ethnic diversity in both sculpts and TBLeague bodies.

That's the thing. I know that people have dyed/stained Phicens. But the issue is headsculpts. Triad did a few African American females. One of them looks pretty good with rooted hair. The other is fully sculpted but is like 125 on ebay.

This is one I would love, but that's nearly the price of some figures.

Way back in the day, between like 2008 and 2013, Triad Toys were trying to bring diversity.

yeah...it's a nice sculpt, but no way I'd pay that kind of money for it. The thing is, I want to do some soldiers in a fictional African country, and I can get the male bodies and head sculpts but I'd also like to do civilians and tribal members and that would necessitate female figures as well. So....my fictional African country might have to become a fictional South American country instead.
